    First car and sound build.

    Yo whats up everyone! I really need help here, my first car and first sound build im extremely excited, so help a brother out!
    Nice to meet everyone (:

    So, I got a quote today. Which is

    Cadence 75RMS splits 5inch
    300RMS Pioneer 12inch sub
    2600Watt starsound Amplifier

    Cool, so I have a 2 seater car and it only can fit 5 inch apparently 6x9 is better, oh well.
    Anyway so I got home, and did endless research now I just have more questions.
    The first being.

    Is that a decent sound system ? Never mind fancy terms, just simply if it was corrected right, with nice amp etc. Would it be loud and clear.

    My second questions, is the amp says 2600watts, but im guessing that this is only peak. So I checked the specs I got this,
    Starsound Digital SSA-CA4-2600 Amplifier
    RMS AT 4 OHM 75W X4
    RMS AT 2 OHM 100W X4
    RMS AT 4 OHM M 170WX2

    According to what I know, it doesn't seem like it will support my Sub properly cause nothing there is 300RMS ? Thanks.

    Anymore input would be fantastic.
    Sorry for the questions, but I a noob, and do not trust a sales person

    Re: First car and sound build.

    need to know if the sub is single or dual voice coil and what impedance it is.

    ideally, it would be a single 4 ohm sub. then the amp would be bridged to the sub on channels 3 & 4.

    the speakers would be powered on channels 1 & 2.

    what is the cost for the equipment you quoted? you can certainly get better quality buying used gear - even the classifieds on here is a good place to shop.

    what head unit are you using/planning?

    my build logs do a pretty good job showing adequate detail. just sort by thread starter, there are 4 or 5 on here.

    got a question? shoot me a PM. Matthew 6:9-15 - YouTube Channel:
