Okay, I just got a 1989 Toyota MR2 about three months ago, this whole time I have been loving the way the car drives... but I knew something was missing; This is where you all come in.
For the amount of space I have (not much) I'm going with a 10" Kicker CVT in the pre-fab sealed kicker box. The amp I am planning on getting is the Kicker ZX400.1. I already have a Lanzar headunit (given to me, I know Lanzar is a **** brand) which I will be using for a month or two until I file my taxes and get the Pioneer P4000-DVD I really want.
I am pretty much set on that particular sub and amp, as they both work well with the size of the car. My first question is for the ZX400.1 amp should I buy the CVT in 2 Ohm or 4 Ohm?
I want to get the sub/amp/headunit all installed next weekend, and then within a month of that I will be looking to replace all 4 stock speakers, presumably when I have the Pioneer P4000-DVD installed (4" up front, 3" in the rear). I have a 1000W 2 channel Pyramid amp [pb449x to be exact] (I know Pyramid is a **** brand, and that 1000w is a magic number they pulled out their *** and I will probably be lucky to get 200w out of the thing, but this amp was given to me as well and I don't turn down free ****). I also believe speakers up for 5.25" will fit up front, maybe depending on a modified fit.
What recommendations do you all have for 4" and 3" speakers? I was thinking of infinity's because I hear that they have a nice sound to them, but I have absolutely no experience with them (other brands that come to mind are polk and kicker). I want to be able to replace all four of my interior speakers for less than $100, and I was wondering would it be a possibility to power the front speakers off the pyramid amp I have and then the rears off my HU?
I am going to spend about $250 on the 10" CVT (w/ box) and ZX400.1. I want to spend less than $100 on the speakers inside but I'll go up to $150, I could probably afford up to another $100 to buy an additional amp to power my front speakers if you guys say the Pyramid won't cut it (I'm guessing ya'll will).
Right now I would say my totat budget is about $650-$750, but keep in mind the amp/sub/HU will be going in next week, and then another amp/2x 3" speakers/2x 4" speakers/and the P4000-DVD HU about a month later.
Also if anyone can recommend a better sub/amp combo for less than $300 that will work in a very small place please do let me know.
Here are some pictures of the car, just so those unfamiliar with MR2's can get an idea of how much space I'm working with. I want the sub to fit behind the passenger seat in the cabin, I will probably mount one amp under the passenger seat and the other either behind the driver seat, in the frunk or in the boot.
I know its hard to get a grip on exactly how much space I have, so I put an ipod on the floor for comparison. Even with the passenger seat all the way back there is about 6" of empty depth directly behind the seat that goes up for maybe 10 inches. If I get a chance I will measure the space so you all know exactly how much I have.
I greatly appreciate any advice you guys have to give.
