    proposed equipment. want to stay under $8000 for entire build.

    Head-Unit
    Pioneer deh-p99rs ( 4 way active hu)
    or
    Pioneer deh-80prs (3 way active hu) Plus Audison Bit One Leaning toward this

    Amplification
    Audison Voce series amplifiers
    2 or 3 AV Quattro (4 channel amps)
    1 or 2 AV UNO (monoblock)

    Speakers
    Audison Voce series
    AV 6
    AV 3
    AV 1
    possibly JL Audio zr 8 or AV 5

    Subwoofers
    3-4 AV 10s
    or
    2-3 AV 12s

    Sound Deadning
    8 bulk pack (36sq feet) Stinger roadkill
    150 sq feet 1/8/1/4 inch closed cell foam.
    150 sq feet 1lb mass loaded vinyl
    30 lbs of expanding foam

    Electrical

    Questions/input.
    What I was thinking was doing 3 inch/tweeter in each a-pillar a 3 inch/tweeter for the center channel(dash) 2 6.5 inch speakers or 1 8 and 1 6.5 inch in front doors.
    and a 6.5 3 and tweeter in the rear doors.

    1. should i put a 6.5 and tweeters in the center or leave the 3 inchers.
    2. 2 6.5s in front door or a 6.5 and an 8
    3. 3 way comp in rear doors or put them in the rear deck (fiberglessed into c-pillar)
    4. the bit ten seems to be a better option thoughts?
    5. any other suggestions (I;m staying with the voce series) as far as speaker amount/ location im fine with taking away or adding speakers.
    6. thinking active the bit ten has 8 channels 10 if you include the center and subwoofer. or should i do a passive system.


    Heres a link to the Voce and Bit One
    Audison Voce
    Audison bit one

    Re: Mid level SQL Build Input.

    I've been summoned...
    Well on the deck front... if your going active I would do the p99rs (get it open box/used if you can).
    If your not going active get the 80prs
    Another good choice would be an older eclipse cd7200 mkii (really warm sounding even moreso than the pioneer) The pioneers will give you more detail by far though but can sound a bit digital, just fair warning.

    Since you are looking at 4 channel amps... there's a 6 channel (100x4 + 300x2 @4ohms) below that I would definately buy for a new build its MASSIVE tho...
    McIntosh MC4000M Car Audio Amp - $1,100.00 : Tube Mono Block Store, www.tubemonoblockstore.com

    I'd go with KNU on the wiring.

    I am tring murdermat, but my knowledge of deadners is limited.

    I would go active, with p99rs, espicially if you have the money. Speaker placement isn't my strong suit.

    The mention isn't working because you need a (space) after the semicolon

    The Bit one is an 8-10 channel active processor same 32bit dsp thats why i was thinking it. i actually have a eclipse 7200 but i like my 80prs more personally even though its only 3 way active.

    as far as the doors what would you do 2 6.5s or an 8 and a 6.5 and in the center channel theres room for 2 5.25s not sure.

    space no work

    Yes I think that processor would probably really help the system and eliminate the need for a p99rs the 80prs should be all you need.

    It does not appear to have auto EQ (it has an auto De-EQ but I believe it normalizes the levels without measuring output from the speakers) or I would buy one in a heart beat... I really hate tuning my system currently and the p99rs's autotune is really starting to aggrovate me the more I listen to it.

    2 - 6.5's

    Keep hope alive will definately be able to guide you on the speakers more.

    Anytime, I'm happy to share what I have found.

    I think most people may prefer the 80prs because it has bluetooth and thats really nice to have while driving. The p99rs doesnt have bluetooth standard.

    If you go with that bit 1 I would find someone with the proper equipment to do the tuning on it.

    Spec sheet says bluetooth. Did you install the mic that came with it?

    yeah, i guess i use the bluetooth.
    just because it tells me when i get texts, and i guess i make phone calls occasionally.
    works really well.

    Re: Mid level SQL Build Input.

    definitely the 99.the bitt one is a nice touch too.i'd do 8's 6's and some bad *** silk dome tweets .i like to run 2 sets lower in the doors[ just below dash height] personally ,it gives a nice blend of the highs with out being too harsh .might wanna look at the new zed amps too,one of my teammates is an authorized dealer for zed too.
