    Re: Calling all Yukon and escalade owners

    From the sounds of it, he isn't trying to go King Kong Commando with his Yukon; he want's some depth; a little bit of rolling thunder.

    Not a **** Earthquake; stop having boners for the substage.

    @kscowboy

    Some questions that need to be answered by OP are

    How much space do you want to have left[better yet any idea how much cubic feet are you willing to give up just on enclosure]? Do you want to keep extra batteries out of your hull? Two 10s will without a doubt give you enough thunder for driving. Budget? Hell, two 8s will leave you room for packing the dogs around, and will give you enough bump for daily driving; assuming you aren't a basshead, even if you are there are beefy 8s.

    Re: Calling all Yukon and escalade owners

    Thank you for a great answer and question. Yes I would like to keep as much room as possible but I also realize I will have to lose some room because of the enclosure. Like I said I don't need 4 18's. not looking for that. But 2 10's or 2 12's would probably take up the same amount of room. And how about a couple more recommendations for the factory door speakers? Thanks for the help. And extra batteries doesn't bother me if they are a must.

    Re: Calling all Yukon and escalade owners

    Thank you for the help. Basically wanting better quality so I'm thinking that the factory speakers need to go and be replaced with better component speakers. Thanks

    A minimal SQ system in a truck that big would consist of something like 2 sealed 12's on ~6-800, a decent quality processor, 6.5" Component speakers in the front door with properly imaged tweeters, some sort of rear fill, and your 4 channel would only need to be around 50-70x4.

    To get louder, or sound better, or both, more money will need to be spent, or more will need to be put into the install.

    And if the factory front stage is good enough for you, no need to change it.

    Re: Calling all Yukon and escalade owners

    I have heard pairs of 12" in properly ported boxes, with adequate power, sound absolutely good in Tahoes/Yukons/etc. Be sure to get a decent four channel, headunit, good front comps and honestly you may be happy just by that if you do it right. Later on add the subs. Unless you have a baddaas factory speaker setup, don't be the guy that has a good substage that blares over all the rest of the soundstage, that kills me.

    Re: Calling all Yukon and escalade owners

    Thats exactly what i hate as well. Thats why i originally asked about pure quality sound upgrades. I want quality sound all around with the added bass to make it a total package instead of just putting in 4 18's and hearing nothing but bass. Thanks

    Re: Calling all Yukon and escalade owners

    I got a 10" Tannoy sub in my house and my whole neighborhood hates me. Why would someone put 4 18" in a vehicle is totally beyond me. Obviously i'm not an spl guy.

    Well from the looks of it youre leaning more towards sq than spl, the problem is for us to help you out we need to know a bit more information.
    1. How much are you willing to spend total
    2. Are you against buying used
    3. Do you have the ability to build your own box, what if it is a simple sealed vs ported?
    4.how much do you know about car audio and are you knowledgeable enough to do the install yourself.

    Lol, sorry man I was just making fun.

    Anyways.. If I were you...

    I would do alot of research on speakers. NO one can tell you whats good pretty much you are kinda on your own.

    The only thing is, your truck already has pre-amped speakers (****** lil bose amp)

    So you are either gonna have to run your new speakers with harnesses off the ****** amp and not notice much of an upgrade (easy way, 5 min install each speaker)

    Or you are gonna have to amp them yourselves (buy and install amp, run speaker wire to the doors) which is a WAY better night and day difference, but it takes some work

    For your setup, no extra batteries will be unnecessary. Although, in your truck, there is a factory spot under the hood FOR a 2nd battery and they sell kits to wire them up. I would do that for sure, if I were you because you never know when having an extra battery can come in handy.

    Anyways, for subs, I would probably go with a single 12 or 15 to be honest. You will save room, and you can get a beast enough 12 or 15 that you will more than adequately produce SQ bass in the shared airspace cabin.



    Headunit - Stock cassette player - Pioneer P9400
    Front Stage - Pyle 8 inch subs (1000 watt peak!!) - Polk DB6.5 (about to be CDT 6.5s)
    Rear stage - Deleted (stolen) - Deleted
    Sub stage - custom built 15 inch sony xplod (5k watt peak!!!) (huge box) - Two SA12's built by Corey
    Sub amp - Pyle 8000w peak!! (spl edition) - AQ2200

    Re: Calling all Yukon and escalade owners

    it depends if his truck has the bose system or not, if it does though have the bose system I hate to say it but youre kinda screwed, For a first time instal dealing with bypassing that is kind of a pain in the *** enless you do everything at once. pretty sure that stock bose amp is under your center console though if you ever go to remove it

    Re: Calling all Yukon and escalade owners

    Well yes I have the ability to build my own box but at this point in time I just don't have enough free time to do that. So basically I want someone else to do it all. And money is no option but I am not stupid with my money and won't spend 10g's on this. So basically a recommendation on brands and sizes is best. I prefer quality over quantity. And thank you so much for the help.

    Well if you dont plan on doing the install yourself than the most important thing you need to do is find a good quality installer near you.
    Go check out reviews online of shops, and maybe check over on diyma and maybe on here for personal guys that do install work. Install is everything when it comes to sound quality. Dealing with the 2012 and a bose system might be a nightmare so you might end up having to keep your factory head unit but the installer you go to should know all about that, as far as brands and what sizes I would reccomend going with 6.5 inch componenets up front with custom made tweeter pods that are aimed properly, go with a nice sound proccessor. Find yourself a good sq sub, check out morel, hertz, scanspeak, older IDmax. You are also going to need to buy some sound deadener. What ever you do dont go off to the local car audio shop and hand over your money without doing your research
