Hey guys, im a new member here, i just registered... i got my system installed about 2 months ago, it consists of:
Alpine 7998 Headunit
Focal Utopias (2 sets for fr and rear)
JL Audio w7s (2 10s)
JL Audio 1000.1
JL Audio 300.4
I have it in a custom box... 2 plexi windows, lit with neon and mirrored bottoms... trunk finished in silver vinyl
subs are mounted reversed, firing into the cabin, with my rear seats folded down... the problem about putttin system in bmw is that they are so properly insolated that no bass would get into the cabin from the trunk if i would have mounted them otherwise...
NOW THE ? is: i have heard 1 10w7 in a ride in the jl box, the sub pounded, up until very high volumes... now i expected my car to be alot louder... but i mean my subs pound, make the whole car shake... but they dont seem to sound as loud as they should? what could this be due to? Also on the alpine headunit, if the volume is over about 20, the subs begin to clip and i get that popping sound, they are bottoming out, i heard that theses subs shouldnt bottom out till alot higher volumes... the bass is set at 8/15... any input would be great.
I attached a few pics of the system: any comments, suggestions, etc welcomed, i am in need of ideas to make the trunk "flashier" since now i deciede that im going to enter shows... im thinkin making panels on sides engraved with jl and w7 logos and backlit with neons? any suggestions on this matter would also be appreciated... thanks!
well i tried attaching a pic and it didnt work... but heres a link to a thread i posted with pics of my system on another forum...
