    My Jeep got destroyed... Suggestions on another car for audio.

    I got into a wreck last night and my Jeep is beyond repair. I am physically fine but emotionally messed up from losing that car. As I go into looking for a new ride, what are some smaller vehicles that are good for car audio? A CRX is definitely already on my list. Has to be a car. Wanting a hatchback. Budget Max I think is around 7-8k. NO FORD, KIA OR FIAT.

    Sad news about the Jeep, glad to hear you're OK anyway.

    CRX is good for the meter, not so great for daily/music. Your biggest limiting factor there is weight and space for batteries. Easy to make a trailer queen that's hot for 3 seconds though.

    Let me make a different suggestion in the Volvo wagon. They actually get loud pretty easily and like to peak low-ish and you have loads of room for subs and amps and batteries. 5K on a pair of 15's should get you 150 @ 43hz easily enough and there's a guy I met from Canada who does about 152 with some Rockford subs and the Rockford 2500 BDCP. Definitely a good car to get loud.

    Not sure if you can tell what model SAAB this is but it gets stupid loud for what's in it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2ho5MerJXT0

    He was doing 152's when he upgraded the amps to Sundown 2Ks. I think firing port and subs back the shape of the interior just launches the sound wave out like a horn.

    Honda Civic also has potential. Seen a couple loud ones and a member here was doing 150 out of the trunk with a pair of 12s this summer.

    They're built solid and the "Volvo safety" may be a good selling point when you're trying to justify the buy to your parents.

    *EDIT*

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eTv4yx5sz-c

    This guy posts sometimes on this forum. I let him borrow some 12's I built for my brother's car and he did a very good number considering his battery bank is woefully inadequate and voltage is dropping into the 9's.

    Anyway, space makes bass, so I'd be looking at things with adequate room for box, amps and batteries.

    Why not get another jeep
    Cherokees get loud

    Otherwise mazda3's get decently loud but flex a lot and not the easiest to get large alts in

    Too bad about the ZJ. Good you are okay. Why not replace it w/ a similar vehicle? These are available for a reasonable cost and are "easy" to maintain.

    Re: My Jeep got destroyed... Suggestions on another car for audio.

    Thanks for all the suggestions and love! 1. The reason why I won't get another is emotional. I don't want another one because it won't be the same. Especially because mine was a very rare model. And 2. I want a car for performance modding and gas mileage. An SUV is not that.

    Large audio system will kill performance and gas mileage with weight.

    Get a big trunk like a lincoln towncar or chevy cruze for power + gear ratio + gas mileage.

    Well I'm not really wanting anything super large. I'm asking so I can find a very acoustically efficient car. Like I'm thinking 2 12s trunk wall made of birch if I get a trunk and maybe 2 15s in a hatch.

    I have two jobs and school so I've been crazy exhausted lately, and I was driving home from my shift late last night and zoned out a bit and thought a light was green. By the time I realized it was red I slammed on the brakes but not soon enough. I only slowed down enough so that no one was hurt, my car was definitely hurt though. Totally my fault and totally due to exhaustion. I can say this once that I was not on my phone.

    Re: My Jeep got destroyed... Suggestions on another car for audio.

    If you like working on cars....95 to 99 Eclipse. 97 to 99 to be better.
    Fire 1 sub up to the rear glass, port to the rear...its like a **** megaphone for bass.
    AND its far heavier than a CRX. I dont know why ppl dont use it more. Maybe
    because the engines are arent reliable to spirited drivers.
