Well, a midst everything else that's going on around here, subwoofer enclosure, engine replacement, four wheeler repairs (minor), and WORK, the components in my wife's van have all but completely given up the ghost. I do have to say they hung in there for WAY longer than she, I or anyone else would have ever dreamed but everything wears out eventually. They've gotten to the point where they will cut out at high volumes for a short period of time then come back on and it's any combination of the drivers that do it. Just the one tweeter, or maybe both tweeters, or maybe both mids and the tweeters keep going, or sometimes it's a tweeter and a mid on one side or the other. The point is that they're about shot, lol. So, for any one of you who are married, were married, or at least in a long term committed relationship you know what I'm talking about when she walks up to you with that sweet look on her face and in a very sweet voice asks about how long it would take to do something for her, wanting the answer first. Then she plays with her hair, and does all the cutest things possible while explaining that she would like to have that thing put at the top of the priority list. All of us who've been there can see it coming a mile away and most of us know exactly what that answer is, lol. That's where I found myself today. First she started talking about all the trouble with the Hifonics components, then she started asking about the new ones, and now I've agreed to figure out how to get them put in as soon as possible with the least amount of down time (cuz she's gotta have her music when driving) possible. Yay..... LOL So here I am, online looking for installation ideas and techniques, trying to figure out the best way to install these without taking forever. Not an easy task with any set of components or speakers, but with this set, this woman, and this vehicle it's even more challenging. Here's a quick pick of the set when I had it out earlier taking some measurements and trying to get a good grasp on how the hell to go through with the install.
Looking to upgrade front stage with some new components. I have it narrowed down to two: SA-6.5CS, or Focal 165A1-SG. Have heard nothing but good things about both brands but have no personal experience with either. Any feed back? I know Focal makes an awesome product but is their lower end line as impressive as their expensive stuff? I'm looking for something that will sound good playing a variety of music. Will one be more versitile than the other? Or am I better off just flipping a coin?
I am thinking of going with 2 sets of components for my front stage and doing away with the rears.(maybe) I have a Alpine PDX 4.150 that does 150 x 4 rms to each channel. Right now I have the fronts on the front channel rca and the rears on the rear channel RCA's. So I do not mess with imaging too bad do I just run RCA Y spitters just on the front channel from the head unit so I can use all 4 channels of this amp? I need something to keep up with two 18's and I think my current front stage would but since my rears will blocked by the huge box I might as well double up front and use all 600 of this amp
