    Help with System design

    I just purchased a '99 Mountaineer.
    This is my first SUV and I need help picking amps and subs and an enclosure.
    I have a Sony cassette that I want to upgrade.
    I have a Sony CD changer that I would rather keep.
    I have two PG amps that I like but, they are older models.
    I also have a bandpass box for two 10's, but I don't know if this sub
    setup will sould good in a SUV.

    Any advice would be helpful.

    I'm a fan of JL Audio, but I am open minded to other manufactures.

    Cya and thx,



    '99 Mercury Mountaineer
    Sony Cassette
    Sony 10 disc Cd Changer
    4x50watt Pheonix Gold Amp
    2x75watt Pheonix Gold Amp.
    Need advise on rebuilding system for a SUV.

    If you have a good bandpass box it will sound decent, as long as you don't mind the sound of a bandpass box. A sealed or ported box may work better. The sound will be tighter and the subs will play a little lower. If you have a cheap prefabbed bandpass box, then you may hear rattling ports and/or the sound of air pushing through the ports. If you want to upgrade your Sony HU and keep your CD changer, then look for a Sony with changer controls and that is compatable with the new HU. I would keep the PG amps and go for a sealed or ported enclosure. You could even try out the bandpass box and see how it sounds before spending money on another box. If you're a fan of JL, then stick with JL unless you come accross a brand that sounds better to you.
