OK, well not yet...they need to be installed, but waiting for my new DLS A7 to come in as well.

I picked up a set of Rainbow Germaniums, a Rainbow Vanadium 12" sub, and a DLS A7 from 6spdcoupe (Don). Great guy, spent all the time necessary to make sure I had the proper setup to suit my wants/needs.

I have an ELS 5.1 surround system stock in my 2007 Acura TL-S. I will run the center channel and surround channels with my stock amp, take 4 channels of the DLS A7 and bi-amp the Germaniums, and send about 440 back to the Vanadium sub in a 1cf sealed enclosure. I'll be able to just run the front 2 channels and a sub for 2-channel music, or turn everything on for DVD-A and DTS recordings.

I'll post up more pics once I finally get everything installed.

Thanks...it's just a Canon S30...about 7 years old! It's just a matter of not using "auto" mode, adjusting white balance accordingly, and using a tripod.

Very nice pics. Any post processing? I have a Canon G2 which was a very good camera back then but still havent learned to get the most out of it.

Thanks. That's just straight out of the camera. I'm just now figuring out how to use the camera, and don't have time to learn Photoshop or similar programs.

Here's what the system is going into. 07 TL Type S. 286hp, Brembo brakes, paddle shifters, voice-activated Nav, Bluetooth through the stereo, etc.

Since a few of you appreciated the photo quality, I've attached a few pics that I thought came out pretty nice.

Wow, beatiful pics...and equipment. I have tons of features on my 6.2 MP HP camera that I just got in December that I've never touched. Maybe I should play with them and see if I can take some cool pictures....

Have fun with the install, should be amazing when it's done. Don't forget to post pics of the installation!

That's such a bad *** car. I've seen one in my area and it's suh-weeeet.


Apparently you're going to keep stock h/u. And I noticed you're bi-amping your fronts (active), so I'm curious what kind of processing you'll use, or if you'll just use the amps' x-over settings?

looks like he might use the passives that came with them, seeing as he is profiling them in a picture, oh by the way here is a pic of the crossover I am not going to use:laugh:

Sometimes people buy the entire set instead of just getting the comps and tweeters as it retains a better resale value. It's only about a $25 difference with the crossovers plus you get the pretty box.

So yes, it's quite possible the OP is going active even though he got the passive crossovers with the set.

I just did not see anywhere the op said he was going active(which was stated by bikinpunk) maybe I missed it, of course its an option duh, but I doubt with the stock HU or and extra proc like bikinpunk is asking about

Thanks for the compliments.

I am not going active...using the Rainbow crossovers in bi-amp configuration per 6spdcoupe (Don).

Awesome! I can't wait to get my TL-S. End of the summer. Funny, cause the Rainbow mids/highs are what I'm looking into also. Keep up posted!
