Recently installed a system in a G35 Coupe....I utilized the stock HU, as I enjoy a 6 disc in dash changer. Besides that here is what I used:
Front ; Boston Acoustics 6.5 Pro Series
Rear: Eclipse Point Source 6x9
Sub: Single 10" Alpine Type R (dual 4ohm coils)
Sub Amp: Alpine MRV-350 running at 2 ohms
Front amp: JBL LC - A504 (50x4 - bridged to the BAs)
1 Farad RF capacitor
Double Helix Monster cable
4 gauge RF power and ground
2 LOCs - one for front amp one for sub
Stock HU powers rear fill Eclipses
My question is in regard to any improvements (w/o spending another $1,000) could I make....especially regarding the JBL - what I did was run a single rca from loc at hu to amp and then used y connectors to split signal and run the fronts bridged at roughly 90W RMS each side....I know this probably ***** as in the past I have used Mcintosh, Xtant, Kicker, Phoenix Gold, etc....but that was college.
Question: How much of a difference would a "cleaner" amp make in regard to the front Boston Acoustics? Is it worth replacing the JBL? and if so with what would you recomend without going too crazy as i know the sky is the limit with car audio.
Thanks very much for any and all suggestions.
