    Icon10 LS2's SQ Build Log *56k beware*

    Alrighty peoples, I finally sold all my old gear and upgraded to some new stuff. Here is what I have now...

    -Apline CDA-9886 (installed)
    -JL Audio 300/2
    -Alpine MRD-M605
    -Pioneer Premier PRS comps
    -20 sq ft of Damplifier
    -45-ish sq ft of Damplifier Pro
    -50 sq ft of R-Blox sound deadener (trunk only)

    Basically what I was looking for, like many others, is a decent sounding system while not breaking the bank. I ended up ordering Rsd comps a few weeks ago, but as many of you know, I was plagued with a bad Xover. After dealing with that issue, Phoenix Gold left a bad taste in my mouth, so I decided to go a different route. After a couple weeks of research, and asking you guys, and countless hours annoying Nismos14, I ended up going with the Pioneer Premier PRS comps, which I bought off onlinecarstereo.com.

    And just recently I ordered a MAW-15 while their sale was going on.

    Now I know this isn't going to be the greatest set up, I'm not saying it is, but I think it will sound pretty good. Eventually, when funds permit, I plan on ordering a JBL W12Gti, along with an undecided amp to power it (suggestions?).

    This is what I have finished so far...the MAW-15 will be arriving Tuesday, and that's when I'll be finishing up the rest of the install.

    Thanks bro, let me tell you the build quality is FIRST RATE. The tweeter housing is machined out of aluminum, and the woofer itself weighs like 4-4.5 lbs. The Xovers look and feel very tough, like they could be ran over by my car and still be fine.

    Not 100% sure on all the specs, I haven't really had time to look through the manual, but I do know it has the 24 bit DAC and is compatible with the "Imprint" thing.
