    Need Help with a SQ System

    Fellas,

    My LT wants to upgrade to a nice SQ system for her SUV/Jeep. She said she could spend $1500-$2000 but if she could do it for less thats cool.

    She is looking more so for SQ with lite SPL. So I would say 70/30 SQ/SPL.

    She already has ALpine in mind as far as head unit but wanted recs on the rest.

    So if you can help us out.

    Which ALpine Head Unit?

    Which Components?

    What amps?

    What Sub?

    i heard the koda's the other day for the first time . Very impressive, but I still like my focals better. But the koda's do sound awesome. Diamond also makes some very nice sounding components. As for the sub it's hard to beat a shiva for the price and performance.

    Brahma 12 - $370
    Magnum D2 - $300
    eD O 12 (2) - $350

    Tsunami 1100d - $260
    http://caraudio.com/vb/showthread.php?t=31963

    SI 307's - $370

    I'm not going to go even furthur ... there are seriously a million choices here ... budget in a decent EQ and alternator. That's a big budget and you can get an unreal system for that. Probably some sound deadener too ... maybe $100 worth.

    As for a HU, I think she would be really happy with an Alpine, 9815 and turn off the internal amp for better SQ. Run another amp, for the kodas, and we are in business.

    I second the 9815 idea ... ~$400 online?

    -Diamond Audio Hex series components=$300 or less on EBAY new, or try http://www.olinecarstereo.com

    -Esoteric Audio E7054 amplifiers. I have 2 NEW for sale if your interested. They are rated at 50 X4@4ohms/100X4@2ohms.200 X2@4ohms bridged. Class A/B. An EXCELLENT SQ amp!
    Produced by Diamond Audio. Looks only slightly different than the ones on their website (Diamond D7054). htp://www.diamondaudio.com

    For the sub, I'd go with either a Brahma, or an Elemental Designs A series.

    Headunit=300
    Amps=$650
    Components=$300
    Sub=$300
    Total: $1550

    Sounds good to me ! =D

    Everyone's idea's are great. Although i Think you should get 2 12" A's. That would be a nice little setup. Or how about some Eclipse's if you have enough money, or maybe even a 10w7? those are expensive. But i think the Brahma and SE ideas are good

    Not everyone wants to push 1800+w on subs for a SQ vehicle.
