I just signed up, so fresh newbie here. I've been browsing threads and post for a little bit though.
Anyways, I'm somewhat new to the whole car audio scene and have been doing research on a setup for my 2000 jeep cherokee xj (SQ setup).
Althought I'm trying to be budget conscious, I don't want to say it is a budget setup....it's more of trying to get the best quality within my means...lol. I understand that the best SQ can only be achieved in a "well engineered" room. I'm looking for something that is obviously more focused on clarity and quality vs just loud. I do not want my whole car shaking...I am 28 years old so I'd say I'm passed those days...BUT I wouldn't mind being able to turn it up every now and then. Def quality over anything else though. Below is a list of what I have and am considering...any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Kenwood HU (x792 for now...but wanting bluetooth and USB + audio out at the front)
JL c5 650 comp in front (got these for a good deal locally for 240 brand new...hearing jl's are overrated and overpriced though?)
JBL GTO 5ez amp OR JL XD400.4 (have both but will sell the one I don't use?)
Ive been debating on rear speaker...JBL MS 62 (problem with tweeter location) or Polk MM651UM or Polk MM6501.
As far as the subs...I've been looking into a lot of the 8" subs by ID, Alpine, etc...from my research. Many are suggesting going with a single 10" sub.
Subs I've been considering include...Alpine Type X, Polk SR series, Morel Ultimos
I've been set of going with a 10" sub, but recently came across a great deal on a new 12" Polk SR124 for $150. I've also come across some decent deals on type X's but they are all 12's thus far. Is it worth waiting around on a good deal for a 10" sub. I just hope that the 12 isn't too overbearing...
