    Welcome to the IHoP

    Sorry day for him! Pucker deserves a thrashing and to recompensate.
  2. Uhh, that plant is not going to sit long on that box once you put in the Rl-p's....at least not if I came over. Can't wait to see the finished result. What are you using for amps and crossovers?

    My Winter Project

    How long did the tranny last? That Neon is going to be nuts! I hope you're keeping it for life though. Resale is already crap on them, and I really hate to see people lose money. BUT, it's all worth it in the name of increased performance. In this case, quite an increase. The tranny was rebuilt at 100k when the motor was put in fresh, it lasted another 100k with the build even though it wasn't too happy when the motor seized, the bummer was the 15-20k on the clutches and tearing through CV Joints (man do they suck to replace too!). It shook the car to pieces eventually too, I suppose from having a locker on a front drive. Fun though. Would LOVE to ride in the Neon when it is done!!

    You can probably ebay that S2000 HU for about what it would cost to get something better (if not more)

    New SQ car???

    Oh, and I am biased but have owned/sold everything else on your list as well other than the Maxima which I have driven and worked on (swearing the whole time)...

    New SQ car???

    Sure I can and have looked at several BMW and Mercedes. Mantainience is killer on them. Atleast in the dallas area. I am plainning on getting atleast 200k out of this next car. They look good but I dont trust them to get that. The 4-runner, accord, camery, lexus, and maxima are more reliable. Honestly, Im 23 and dont care as much as I use to about looks. I just want a nice car that can fit my budget and lifestyle. The cars I listed do. Oh, and I did test drive an M3....nice and fast but insurance would kil me. Screw looks, I am talking about driving enjoyment. A 3 series BMW'er (straight six) is cheaper to fix and will hit 200k just as easy as anything you listed. I am planning on getting to somewhere between 250-300k on my M5 (1991 vintage! hell ya got to love the classics). My car is insured as the same class as a Taurus and isn't even considered a performance car. No dumb timing belts, no ridiculous V6 imbalances, no extra ridiculous electronics (read Nissan), and super easy to work on. As for parts the 6 cylinder BMW's have parts that are almost as cheap as any other car check it out at (alloembmwparts.com) . Plus they do a lot to help with the dampening ahead of time, just makes it tricky to port the bass into the passenger compartment though. Basically if it has six cylinders it should be an inline: I6=V8 >>>V6 especially for high miles. For an engine that you are going to drive that far, intrinsically balanced internals really help!

    How's my frontstage sound?

    I hear there is one in Valdosta.

    I ran 9psi daily on a "doctored" SHO taurus and it was a friggin' blast. That will make it fun to run from the mounties.

    Welcome to the IHoP

    As long as I get serviced, I personally don't care. Or are we referring to the hoochy hair, in that case blonde or bald always works

    amp/component advice

    I love my Rl-p it is super clean sounding have it sealed in 1.35cuft but I wouldn't be scared of porting it. In my case I need the trunk space and spare (50k mi / year) and big demo gear to go in the trunk. http://www.soundsolutionsaudio.com/forum/i...?showtopic=4166 It has been a while since I have heard any CDT's, I have always been impressed with their price performance but I don't feel comfortable responding about how they sound. PM Upstage if you want to know. As for the clean sweep, I would either do Navone converters http://www.davidnavone.com/ or even better replace the hu. I am sure the clean sweep is fine, but JL is too big IMO so there marketing department has too much pull over engineering. You can tell from my equipment list that I don't often play with the big boys like that. Oh ignore that recommendation, you have a 92 Honda and asked for SQ--you NEED a new headunit!

    I am sure if we pull the plate on "his Mach1" it will be registered to some random person, or as I stated his neighbor...

    I missed the cheque the first time through, that is great. I thought you had locked that thread yesterday so I didn't post then, but it is unlocked now...

    Inverted sealed vs regular sealed

    hehe, ya I bought mine from Madisound for the same reason
  17. Thanks, I have a "researching problem"....some might call addiction. And those sites are definetely over the top when it comes to computer audio. Couldn't believe how much info there was out there, way, way more than anything I have seen for cars.

    I got mikes opinion

    Output for output it will be very similar in SPL, but flatter when the two are sealed up and to me will sound that much better. Oh, and who cares if the cone is nekkid get it anyway. The logo is cool and so is Mike....give him some money.

    amp/component advice

    Promo #1 IS-2080 CDT-CL62 $305.00 Promo #2 IS-2100 EF-61 $365.00 Promo #3 IS-2100 EF-61 CF $380.00 Or a build your own: IS-2100 and CDT-CL62 -- $350 **eagerly waiting to be put in your car** Of course if you buy the Rl-p instead of the D2 you have nearly another $250 to put in your front stage...which I would do (and just did), but I have never heard a D2 so my recommendation is unfair and biased based on being able to spend more on the front stage.
  20. Yes! The profile "looks" cheap, but don't take my word on it as I have never used one....but I am scared to.

    Upstage is the guy for those... What are you combining them with and what/where are you going to put them?

    That sucks, did you have to do custom grills then too?

    Sp 15 Premium to home?

    That's great. Might be "ok", but we need a little more info. Actually a question would be good as well? What are you trying to do and what do you currently have? How much money do you want to spend and what do you listen to? What sort of car isn't a bad addition either...
