    Please review this components list

    Could I get some opinions on this component list. I spent some time with a Crutchfield rep and he suggested the following for a 2002 4runner:

    113KDCX396 Kenwood Excelon KDC-X396 CD Receiver $120
    1086032SI Infinity Reference 6032si 6.75" 2-way Speakers Shallow $75
    107DXI400 Polk Audio DXi400 4" Coaxial Speakers $68
    777M4075 Sound Ordnance M4075 75W x 4 Car Amplifier $130

    136S110R33 JL Audio PowerWedge CS110RG-W3v3 10" Single 2-ohm Hatchback Sub Enclosure $320
    777M1500 Sound Ordnance M1500 500W x 1 at 2 Ohms Car Amplifier $130

    Misc
    541SPW516B Stinger SPW516BK per foot 16 Gauge Speaker Wire Black
    211SC14250 StreetWires SCP14 per foot 14-gauge Blue Speaker Wire
    142A17C EFX 17-ft. Stereo RCA Patch Cable
    142PA8 EFX Amplifier Wiring Kit 8-gauge w/Patch Cord

    What I am leaning towards doing is getting the HU and the 4 speakers. Getting 2 of the Polk 4 ohm dc subs on sale at Best Buy and the Rocksford Fosgate 200ix amp for sale here.

    Is the Sound Ordinance 75 x 4 amp descent, or would I be better off getting something like the Alpine MRV-F345 amp being sold here for $140.

    They recommended an RF dual amp wiring harness for $185! I see it on ebay for $99. Are there more cost efficient solutions out there?

    PS - This is for my son's car, so a budget teen-friendly build is what I am after.

    Re: Please review this components list

    you would be much better off with a different amp. i've been pushing Boston Acoustics GT series a lot lately. The prices on the GT-475 is pretty great when you consider the caliber of amp you are getting for the money.

    Some used amps would also be a great way to save coin while getting a better quality product.

    Nice choice on the HU. best budget HU on the market today, IMO.

    I recommend the same line of speakers front and rear - keeps tonality consistent. Infinity Reference is a fine choice.

    you can certainly save some money on the sub/enclosure - and that money can be used to improve the amplifier(s). $320 for a 10 in a wedge box is a bit pricey given the performance. You could pickup a brand new Dayton HO 10" for around $120 and a box to match from Parts Express for under $200 shipped. The performance would be the same as the JL (which has >2x markup) and about 4x total markup (build cost vs sale price). I love JL products and if you can afford them then go head, but their pricing markup is outrageous. When budget is at play.

    the amps should be the most expensive parts of the system.



    have you been helped by me? i'd love to know. shoot me a PM.

    better yet -
    Bravox UXP10D-4 Ultimate Performance Plus 10" DVC Subwoofer 269-526
    tuned to 30Hz has a real nice response (modeled) in a 1.1 cu. ft. enclosure.

    can't beat the price @ $60

    $170 on eBay. Not bad. Is the RF 200ix at $160 a good way to go? Or are you suggesting 2 of the gt475s?

    Re: Please review this components list

    if you go to the boston acoustics site and click on refurbished

    Boston Acoustics US)
    click refurbished on top and go to page 3

    you will see the boston acoustics gta1105 5 channel amp for 150 shipped msrp on these is 400 bucks its an amazing deal

    Front and Rear Power @ 4-ohm Stereo (CEA-2006-A): 70 Watts x 4
    Front and Rear Power @ 2-ohm Stereo (CEA-2006-A): 125 Watts x 4
    Front and Rear Power @ 4-ohm Mono(CEA-2006-A): 250 Watts x 2
    Subwoofer Channel Power @ 4-ohm Mono (CEA-2006-A): 250 Watts x 1
    Subwoofer Power Power @ 2-ohm Mono (CEA-2006-A): 400 Watts x 1

    this would lso negate the dual amp wiring kit and you would only have to run one amp

    Re: Please review this components list

    for a sub i would go with

    Boston Acoustics G215 44 Car Audio Stereo 15" Power Sub Woofer Subwoofer G21544 | eBay
    amazing deal on closeout

    all great subs, depending on how loud you want to get i may just go with one 15

    Bravox EXS15D-4 Extreme Duty 15" DVC Subwoofer 4 Ohm Per Coi 269-534
    Audio Technix 400W RMS 800W Max Strato Series Subwoofer Dual 4 Ohm 15" Sub | eBay


    but i would personally run the sundown e15 d4 on sale fore 105 now for feb
    Sundown February Sale : "E" and "NeoPro" Series
    and you get a warranty from auth dealer

    then for a box a custom box is a must contact @double 07 ; this is the box he made me amazing and the box is the most important piece for the sound of the sub.

    McClerico83's RD 12" Enclosure

    and he is pretty close to you in tn

    Amazon.com: KnuKonceptz KCA Complete 4 Gauge Amp Installation Kit: Car Electronics

    so you will just need this kit instead of the 100 dollar kit and i saved you a bunch of money and you can then use the money to buy better component speakers etc.
