    Starting from scratch with 2004 accord sedan

    Hi everybody.

    Well I traded my truck in because I got tired of paying out the wazoo for gas. And I got a little more fuel friendly '04 honda accord. I would like to start fresh and get a top notch sound quality system in it...new hu....front and rear speakers... perhaps a single 12" sub in the trunk.

    I was wondering if any of you folks live around the Longview, TX area. If so then I was wondering if you could possibly help me design a nice sounding system....maybe build a sub box and/or some fiberglassing work. I would pay whatever you feel is appropriate.

    Thanks

    I've never heard of hertz, critical mass, or audison. I appreciate the information, however I just looked at the critical mass website and good grief! That sub is rated at 2500 watts rms. I don't need anywhere near that kind of power handling. I was thinking more along the lines of 400 or 500 rms for the sub for some nice full bottom end. I am not a superboomer.

    hertz and audison make awesome! products, they wont dispoint, and the RE SE will perfect. i have one with 600 watts on tap and its perfect for all types of music and can still make some dam good noise when i play Bass Mekanik

    CAE just did a review on the Hertz comps.. here it is

    http://www.caraudiomag.com/features/...165/index.html

    and yes, i have heard them myself and the audison amps.... sweet stuff, very sweet. a local shop owner and i spent about a hour listening and chattin to the entire hertz line off audison amps. good times....

    Nice looking products. Unfortunately out of my price range. I will have to settle for good quality instead of top notch quality. I wish there were someone on here that lived around me that could actually look at my car and see what all can be done.

    You never gave a price range.... That is the first place to start. Tell people how much you want to spend (unless price is not an issue) and then tell them what you want.



    back at it...
