    Please help me decide on sound system.

    These is the system I was thinking about putting in my car please feel free to comment about what you like or dont like so I can change it accordingly.(I havnt orderd any of it yet)

    Headunit- Alpine CDA-9857

    Speaker amp- JL 300/4

    Front Speakers- eDi6500s

    Back Speakers- Some kind of coaxil down the road (back not that important to me)

    Sub amp- JL 500/1

    Sub- JL 10W7 probably in JL H.O. enclosure


    What do you guys think? What speakers do you think? I will be having this done professionally at tweeter. It would be put in a scion tC.

    -Thanks
    steve

    Re: Please help me decide on sound system.

    fwiw, here's what i'm looking at right now:

    Big 3 wiring upgrade
    Alpine 9856 HU
    JL 300/2
    Rainbow Germaniums (or if I decide to buy something cheap just to have it installed by Tweeter, probably just some Boston Pro60s if they're on sale/discount since they'd be about the same price as ordering much nicer speakers online like the Germaniums)

    added later:
    JL 12w6v2
    JL 500/1
    box
    possible a better alternator than stock


    Btw, what did they quote you for labor?

    Im pretty sure your probably going to want to do the BIG 3. Or a better alt. I have heard better reviews on subs that re cheaper than the W7. SQL or SPL. My guess is SQl.

    Re: Please help me decide on sound system.

    I'm hearing around $1600 to have the following purchased and installed at Tweeter:

    Boston Pro60s
    Alpine 9856
    JL 300/2
    Dynamat front doors
    power wire
    RCAs
    JL 16g wire kit

    The Boston Pro60s are nearly identical price in their store as ordering Rainbow Germaniums would be from 6spdcoupe. Tweeter might install them for me but would charge an additional ~$80 to do so since they aren't items purchased from them. I'm thinking the Germs might be worth an additional $80 in SQ and to go ahead and get them and hope they'll install them for me.

    Also might be worth building your own box.
