    I need complete sound system HELP

    Hi,

    I am trying to get a "decent" sound system for my car. I am looking at spending around $900 U.S. money. I have an Integra Hatch Back car. I have been researching a little bit, So I need you guys advice on the following:

    AMP: Orion HCCA 225G4 ($360) VS. Rockford Power H500.2 ($310)

    Subwoofer: Orion 10" XTR10DVC ($78 each x 3)

    I am wondering WHICH one of IF ANY of those AMP's is able to push 3 10" SUBs ?

    Plz let me know if there is another brand or something nicer from that price.

    Thank you



    Thanx

    In this case, I would favor the Orion amp, it offers better quality circuitry that is stable down to .5 ohm. The base RF 500.2 will not even come close to that.

    Orion has long been a champion on the amplifier side of things- mainly when used to drive subwoofers. Thier amplifiers are conservatively rated and your particular choice should have no trouble in driving 3 subwoofers. I would however reccomend stepping up to the HCCA 250G4 to allow a little more headroom.

    take it easy,

    Zane,

    Thank you for the help man. You seem like you know your stuff. Maybe you can tell me if those 3 10" subwoofers (ORION) is good subs ?
    Also another question, since my car is a hatch back, do you think I should get only 2 10" orion subs or 3 10" is what I should leave it at to make it sound much nicer. I normally listen to fast paste songs, Trance.

    1- ORION subs is good ?

    2- (2) 10's or should I get (3) 10's ?



    Thanx

    Orion does make some decent woofers- better suited for SPL applications as opposed to SQ however. They are not the most musical woofer.

    From the type of music you listen to, I honestly think you would be a bit happier with something along the lines of JL Audio, Eclipse, Infinity, A/D/S, Alumapro, Adire. These all tend to be better on the SQ side of things and thus more capable of the fast and accurate bass you enjoy.

    Generally, a trio of 10's would be my first choice if you have the room, simple reasoning, a tad more output. If in doubt- start with 1 and then make the necessary additions if they are required for your listening habits.

    take it easy,
