I'm new here. I worked as a car audio and alarm installer 15 years ago. I have not had a decent system since...well...a long time.
I bought a 1997 Honda Odyssey and I really like the van. I'd like to build a nice system.
Can you give me suggestions on what components to use for a nice simple front sound stage that focuses on sound quality?
I like "vocally" music. I also like dubstep and house music. I really like vocally dubstep. I also listen to talk-radio.
I am thinking I am going to use a SSA DCON or GCON for bass. Maybe a SKAR 800.1 for a sub amp. I have no idea what components to use for the mids and highs. The head unit is a JVC KD-X50BT. I bought the head unit for the Bluetooth phone and Pandora features, and the fact it was $100.
I am thinking I want to make custom a-pillars, since there is a lot of space on the Odyssey dash right where those vent windows are. I know there is no way to make it look stock, but I don't want it to look cheesy either. I really just want to bring the sound stage up because it is all on the floor right now, but I would like it to look tasteful.
What would you suggest on a $250-500 budget, assuming I am providing all of the fabrication and installation?
