How does this system for my Dodge Ram pickup sound?
Head Unit: Alpine CDA-7878 CD player with mp3 capability and satellite radio ready. 7 band equalizer, Bass engine and Ai-Shuttle controller.
Equalizer: Help me out here. Leaning toward Alpine, Audiocontrol, or PPI.
Amp: Precision Power Powerclass PCX-480 80watts x 4 channels.
Speakers: JL Audio Evolution XR653 3-way components. 6.5" midbass driver installed in factory door location, 4" midrange and 1" aluminum dome tweeter installed in Q-logic custom kick panels. Speakers rated at 75watts RMS, powered by front channels of PCX 480 amp 80watts RMS per channel (5 extra watts won't hurt)
I'm not going to use any rear speakers because I'm one of those purists who believes in a front stage and imaging.
Subwoofer: JL Audio Stealthbox with one 12W3 subwoofer that goes under the front center seat. Powered by bridging 2 rear channels of the PCX-480 amp for 320watts RMS. JL Audio says the 12W3 takes 250watts RMS but I heard they underrate their subs and 320 probably won't hurt it.
Power: Lightning Audio 1 Farad Cap, appropriate gauge power and ground wire, and 12 gauge speaker wire. Total system wattage is 480watts RMS so stock alternator should be ok.
So what does everyone think? Any opinions, suggestions, or criticisms are welcome.
Also, should I sound deaden the car or will it not matter with a relatively low wattage system such as this? Not like I have 1200watt Orion HCCAs or anything.
