    Stayin a step ahead of my buddy who wants his system better than mine

    So me and my buddy who got me into car audio have always added or changed things here and there to improve our systems and when his is better he'll rub my nose in it a bit, when mine is better I'll make sure to keep letting him know.

    At this point I have HErtz HSKs in front getting 140 watts off a Bridged EA4200, infinity reference rear coaxials in the rear off the head unit, an Alpine CDA 9886.

    Sub is a Pioneer Premier shallowmount 10 (It's a crew cab truck, no trunk, limited mounting options so I stick to shallowmounts right now.) Sub runs off an Alpine MRP M500 providing 300 watts at 4 ohms.

    He has diamond audio comps front and rear, stock head unit, Hertz sub in a bandpass enclosure. The thing is he seems to be running all 6 of his his interior speakers off one MTX 75x4 4 channel and he's still running a stock HU that will probably end up tied to a JL Cleansweap. Either that or he's putting in a Pioneer in dash EQ with time alignment.

    I think his plan is to upgrade for more power and go with Boston Acoustics all around except for the sub. I'm trying to figure out the next thing to do to my system so that when he makes his changes I'll still blow him out of the water. Better sub? Time to get imprinted?

    If your sticking with shallow mounts then I suggest you upgrade to 1 or 2 12" SI BM 12" with 3/4 MDF board they are 5.5" deep, and they sound good and can get very loud given the right enclosure, and only need .5cf3 to get loud. They are around 170-200 very great choice for an upgrade as far as subs go.

    Re: Stayin a step ahead of my buddy who wants his system better than mine

    Because of my enclosure and mounting location I am limited to probably no more than 3.5 inch mounting depths. Anybody recommend some bangin shallowmount 10s with this dimension? I already have an enclosure for a 10 so that's what I was hopin to stick with.

    Indeed, then use 6.5" or 8" subs only.

    Re: Stayin a step ahead of my buddy who wants his system better than mine

    I've been wondering whether the Clarion shallow 10 that's out would make much difference. Ive heard shallowmounts have an inherent inferiority to conventional subs but still don't understand what aspects of the design differences make it so. Could anyone explain?

    Brag about your **** size to your male friends alot do you?

    If shallow mount subs didnt have problems over conventional subs, dont you think ALL subs would be shallow mount by now? Or you think we just like having deep mounting depths for no good reason?



    No speaker, in the history of speakers, has ever been blown by too little power. Ever. I don't care what your friend told you, he's a dirty liar.
