Help w New sound system

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, I have exactly 2k to spend on a new system. I'm not sure what to buy exactly, I'm looking for good speakers(x4), a single 15 with an enclosure and an amp that can hold all of that. What would you guys prefer?

I can't explain something I don't know, I'm just wondering what I should buy with the 2k. I want big bass but clear enough to hear the music

How much room do you have? What music do you listen to? What electrical upgrades do you have? Is this for just everyday?

Don't worry about the rear speakers. Just focus on the front speakers.

You can do a lot with $2k, so much so that you might not even need that much for your goals. We do need much more information as listed above. If I were to maximize your budget though, this is what I would do.

 

$2000

Big 3 Upgrade -  ~$40

Image Dynamics CXS62+Amp - $300

2 SSA GCON 12s - $500

Crescendo 2000D - $500

2 Wiring Kits - $100

Head Unit - ~$150-$300

Enclosure - $200 (Built by someone else... $60 or so if done yourself)

 

This is with brand new, quality equipment.

Dont worry about buying 2 sets of speakers, Ditch the rear speakers and spend more money on your front set.

More info !

 

What type of system, daily driving or to compete?

What type of vehicle do you have?

what is the amp rating of your vehicle's alternator?

How much space are you willing to give up, height, width and depth?

What equipment are you running now or is it all stock?

 

More, questions may be asked later, but these are all good for a start.

I pity you if you actually can't answer those other questions without someone holding your hand. 

 

You're question is a bit like saying: "I want to buy a car for $30k. Which one should I buy?"

my opinion is that you can't design a system without understanding the environment in going in.

What you consider to be a waste of money might not be a waste to him or to others.

 

I can't explain something I don't know, I'm just wondering what I should buy with the 2k. I want big bass but clear enough to hear the music

 

OP asked for big bass while being able to hear the music, I'm assuming those are his goals.

 

I don't even have a car yet this is why I can't answer obviously? I just wanted opinions?

 

OP gave a budget, he asked for opinions, I gave him mine.

Worry about getting a car before you worry about a system.

      Hello everyone, long time no see. I am selling a pair of Dual 2-ohm (technically D1.7) 12" Sundown X v.2's built by Dave Leib a.k.a "Strongman Designs." 
      Reason I am selling them is because I realized upon testing to see if my digital multi-meter was working correctly that one of the coils is reading higher on the one sub indicating that too much heat had been applied to it recently so rather than risking any further damage to it I am going to assume that I have too much power for these.
      Having said this in all honesty, let me make it perfectly clear here that both subs are still in perfect working order as we speak, even the one that is reading differently. Had I not thrown my multi-meter on it to test it in order to see if it was working properly (the multi-meter itself) I would have never known there was any difference or discrepancy between the two.  
      However, because one of them is reading off now and I do not know what is to be expected out of it's performance long-term I will be letting these go for $500+ shipping (that includes both).
      Any further questions or concerns please feel free to text me at 440-915-2309
      Phil
