Re: I'm COMPLETELY new to all of this....and a truck question
I like my panasonic, my friend had an alpine that was a bit nicer (nice on his how you could browse the songs).
An idea for subs, i really like my RE8s, shallow mounting, don't require a lot of power, but sound really good, and small enclosures (.25cube sealed, .5 vented is whats reccomended)
Headunit - Panasonic CQ-DF783U
Door Speaks - Alpine S 5.25"
Rear Speaks - Infinity Kappa 6.5"
Sub Amp - Hifonics NX400
Sub - Adire Audio Shiva 12" in 2 cubes ported to 29hz.
