Hey everyone


New member here from Illinois.
I know very little when it comes to car audio.
So im here to get help when i need help. LOL


I put a small sound system in my pit vehicle.
Went over kill on the HU, speakers are perfect, and cheaped out on the amp.

Amp is getting replaced as soon as i can find the one im looking for.

Ive been messing with car audio stuff since i was 15 or 16, i dont know a lot.
But i know the basics. How to hook stuff up ect..
Never built anything massive.

Put the cart together for good sound..the amp doesnt reflect that.
Im not even going ot mention what it is. LOL

I have had my Alpine for almost three years now...I love the **** thing.

I also thought I had somewhat of a good ear for sound and initially tried tuning it all myself and then broke down and bought the Imprint software when it came out. I bought the H/U so early on that the Imprint software had not been released yet. Anyways, since I have purchased the Imprint it proved that my ear for sound ain't what it used to be. That software has impressed me in what it can do for SQ and the soundstage. Pretty awesome ****. You gotta know how to set the amps prior to running the software, but after that it does a real fine job.

There are a lot of guys here that like to go active and tune all their own **** and that is cool if you have the time and the patience to keep ******* with it, but I really like the "set it and forget it" of the Imprint. :fyi:

Im going to have to pick me up one of those CD's
Sounds good

I knew i picked a good HU when i bought this one.
Wouldnt trade it for anything.
I just couldnt spend $100-$130 on a pioneer or alpine
for the cart, i needed something full of awesome and something
i wouldnt ever need to replace due to running out of this or that
or it not having something.
