I'm a car audio OG that retired... I used to compete in SPLs a long time ago. I moved to Manhattan 10 years ago and have been carless ever since, UNTIL NOW! I recently bought a house in suburbia and finally have a driveway so I don't have to worry about my system getting jacked.
I'm grabbing myself an 06 Escalade and my 5 year old daughter needs to feel some extreme bass. My wife also wants her ears destroyed so I'm gonna take care of that for them. The 1st thing I'm going to do is subs and I'll upgrade the mid / high frequency ish at a later time...
Until then, please school me on the new jack subs and amps... I come from the Eclipse / MB Quart / Rockford Era. I know the game changed.
10 years ago I leased a car... I didn't want to do much but add some bass. I got a 12W7 HO box (via 200.00, don't ask) and used my 90's RF Power 1000 and I was ok with that bass in a Jetta.
My current situation is that I'm looking for plug and play as far as the subs go... That's why the JL HO box is appealing to me. I know JL Audio in general is voodoo because JL IS OVERPRICED!!! Are there any other subs sold with the boxes tuned properly that I'm not aware of? I am not interested in a sealed box...
I can build another box if necessary but I don't have that much time. I'm looking for something better for the money than a 12W7 HO Box with a 1000/1 Slash amp.
1. Need an amp (or amps)
2. Need a sub setup
3. Need a Battery (Kinetic?) - I used Optima
3. Wiring - I used Stinger and Streetwires
Hook the OG up folks! Many thanks...
