Hey guys,

So here's the deal; I'm definitely not new to cars and tuning. In fact, I do own a 400+whp 300zx. I have quite a 'good' understanding if I may of anything that has to do with mechanics, how to make more power bla bla bla etc etc.

Now as much as I've been in the scene for quite a long time, I NEVER took the time to research or even take a look into audio simply because for some reason, I just dont listen to anything while I drive lol. Too busy spending money on power and handling mods.

Now I just recently started working on a new shop and they tend to do a lot of audio. Not to mention, they have show cars and I guess I can say that I'm starting to catch interest lol.

Anyhow, just like I always like to put premium stuff in my Z, same goes for audio. I'm basically looking to put only best into it but don't have a clue lol. Any good place to start??

ftw, I'm also looking to spend over $2000. maybe upwards of $4K. Is that enough for a good sound system????

Any input would really be appreciated.

you need to let us know what you want from this though. SPL or SQ? How much space do you have and how many subs do you want to run? Sub size? Front and rear stage speakers or just front stage? Co-axials or components (go with components though)?How much power do you want to run? Are you willing to upgrade your electrical?

There are more, but those can get you started

ya I'll go with components and as for subs well, there isnt much trunk space so I don't want to take too mcuh space either. I was thinking of getting 1 12" but any good suggest will be accepted lol.

I've been looking into MB Quart, Phoenix gold, JL audio and Focal. So far I've read that those are really good. Any suggestion?

Once upon a time their was a TC Sounds 12" in a very good ported box, 0 guage wire throughout, an extra battery, a small four channel, and front stage coaxials. It sounds pretty **** amazing. Sound deadner throughout all of trunk areas. Would be pretty decently in the center of your budget ;)

Welcome to the Forum! Here is a link to help you get started:

When it comes to the brand and of course the highest end product, cost is always a subjective matter. I noticed you said that your new shop was involved with a lot of shows and that's what's peaking your audio interests? I would definitely go to a couple shows before I would make a very expensive purchase. You may end up spending a lot less, especially if the brand you demo'd is a relatively inexpensive brand! Your own ear will let you know what you like and plus, a lot of really cool people can be met at shows and their personal experiences with the products could help you make a more informed decision.

Don't forget that when you decide on a final set-up, start a build log, everybody here loves pictures! And if you have any specific questions, do a search, and then start a new thread if you can't find an answer, or PM me and I will help with anything you got.

Later!
