    jl audio system setup

    HI, I am completely new to this forum but was looking for some advice. I currently own a 2013 Nissan Sentra SR with stock 4 speaker system which I am looking to upgrade. I was wondering if this setup is a good one.

    1 Pioneer AVHX4600BT
    1 JL Audio 10W3V3-4 hooked up to
    1 JL Audio 600/1 class D monoblock
    1 JL Audio C5-525 5.25" C5-Series 2-Way Component System hooked up to
    1 JL Audio XD400/4: 4 Channel Class D Full-Range Amplifier 400 Watts

    I didn't mean to go with all JL Audio but my research showed those as top of the class.

    Any suggestions would be great.

    Re: jl audio system setup

    yeah if you wanna go broke.... HU is hivolt, good, sub weak, never run under w6 personal preference, mono not bad at all make sure you turn the gain down as the w3 is like 250 watts (w6 would match perfectly...) do not like the sound of the comps especially if those are the grey ones... never ran the xd amp line but loved my 300/4v1/2,
    but you know with the money you could do so much better... what i would do that would be cheaper but sound better....

    sub stage- ssa sub, obsidian v3 10... along those lines.... or find used w6...
    keep sub amp, if you haven't bought it yet don't look into ct sound and various others on here....
    comps....i'd go either pioneer or jbl ms, just don't like the jl sound, cdt,theres a million options...
    4ch i'd run it or try to, like I said never ran the xd's.....

    jl is far from top of the class...... but it is good equipment, I've ran whole jl set ups, its good... but better can be had for the money.....

    look if you haven't gotten anything yet... make a thread mention a budget and let the feedback pour in... i used to try to do research on all that stuff but most of it in the mainstream is so fictious, welcome to the forums, most people on here are running stuff you've never heard of.. but aot of it is awesome power and way better than anything your gonna go pick up from a store or order from ebay..... JL is way over priced, it all depends on your budget... at lok into buying used if your open to it.....




    H.U. - Pioneer P7200HD
    Fronts - Pioneer premier TS-C720PRS
    Rear - Pioneer TS-D6902R
    Amp - kx2500.1
    Sub - AQ HDC4 12
    just a lil' slam for now.... tuned to 33hz!!!!!

    complete budget system under 400.00... (kenwoods)

    Thanks, I appreciate the feedback and will take your advice and I haven't purchased anything yet, and I am not setting a budget for myself as I plan to save up for whatever is best bang for the buck setup, don't want to limit myself but if I can go cheaper than the system will be installed sooner.

    Re: jl audio system setup

    Ok so I went back and did a little more research for more sq out of less money and was wondering if this setup would work as far as matching amps to speakers and overall sq together:

    1 obsidian 10 v3 d2 powered by
    1 jbl gto7001 amp
    Jbl ms 52c powered by
    1 precision power s580.4

    I need my system to blend well without bass overpowering comps while listening to mostly rap

    No comments whatsoever on what I pm'd you about? What you just listed is a far cry from what you originally posted.

    Re: jl audio system setup

    In all honesty if you were to tell us a price range you are looking to spend and if you have to have new there are plenty of people on here that could help get you what you are looking for under or near that budget. I run all used equipment and as long as you buy from a legit seller on here you can get badass equipment for a good price.



    Current set up: Island bombed out 92 mazda 626. Stock rust bucket

    66 Pontiac GTO, modified stock radio, Crossfire CFA 302, Kicker KS6.2's in the front kicks, Crossfire CFA 452 for the 6x9's I need.

    Sorry your prices were off. I could get them cheaper and I intend to install them myself. I was merely asking for ideas on a setup. I don't intend to do business on this forum

    I was introducing some ideas. My message barely mentioned prices. Best of luck.
