    New Setup... thoughts?

    Whats up guys... just getting around to redoing my system. tell me what you think of my upgrades

    HU: Pioneer avic-n3 (upgradding from alpine cda-9851)
    Front stage: Alpine Type S comps
    Rear stage: Alpine Type S 6x9
    Alpine 4 channel amp (forgot #)
    Subwoofer: JL 10w6v2 (downgrading from 2 12" Ascendant Audios sealed... enclosure was wayyy to small, so sounded not so good)
    Amp: JL 500/1 (Again, downgraded from a hifonics 1606d)

    Wiring will be 1/0 guage run the length of the car, fused to a 4ga amp kit
    Also the big three will be done in 1/0.

    Thoughts??? going into a 98 civic coup

    I don't think the 500/1 is a downgrade at all, personally

    The only thing I'd change about that list is scratching the rear components and going with a DIY set of individual tweets and midbasses up front, and adding a roll or two of sound deadening to that list.

    But other than that, not a bad start if it's installed well

    yea, going to hopefully have a friend help me with everything... (im sitll new) and eventually once some funds open up i plan on going ss or cadillac dampening the trunk / doors. Also upgrading the front / rear stages. I bought my first system in a rush and without much car audio info... but think the n3 is a nice touch?

    I've always loved the look of dark-tinted cars...

    But I can't drive one. My Mom has 40, I think, or 35... and I can barely drive her car. My brother has 5% all around and I have to put his windows down. Haha. I can't stand having my peripheral dimmed.

    But, it looks awesome.
    I'd get rid of the rear fill, and get another comp set. Do you have a price range for the front stage?



    Now designing / building boxes.
    (Only building sealed and aero port boxes.)
    PM me.

    Put the money that would go into the head unit, into the speakers

    There's no point in having a great source, if the limiting factor is still the front stage...
