I get my new Scion TC monday. I want to keep the factory mp3 pioneer deck and add some components and amp to get started.
I'll need a LOC, Speakers, and Amp.
Any suggestions on a LOC? I've heard that you only want to run a quality one, but who makes a quality one?
Speakers. I'm leaning towards some CDT carbon fiber euroframes with the 560 crossovers. They are about $210 shipped. Other options would be focal polyglass. I'm really leaning towards the CDTs. Need to measure depth and stuff to see if they fit first.
The thing I have no idea on is an amp. I would like to run a 2 channel amp, and no rear fill. Something in the range of 100x2 to 150x2. I'll run a seperate mono amp later to run a sub. Looking at hifonics, rockford, cadence, us amps, arc, us acoustics. Price range from $130-350. I'm not sure if spending extra on a "nicer" amp will even show up to my ears. Looking for a solid performer and something that is fairly compact if possable.
I got to pick out a sub also. I want great sound quality and something that will play low. I had 2 RE8s in a sealed box before, and they were pretty **** good, but I want more than that. Space will be an issue. Probably .6-.8 cf.
If anyone has an SRT4 or DSM, I could probably work out a trade for parts if someone has a car audio shop. I work for www.agpturbo.com and we make performance parts for Dodge SRT4s and DSMs.
