    Getting ready for the new install

    I just want to know what everyone thinks about what im going to get so far

    1500w Brutus BX1500D amp (for subs)
    Audiobahn A4004T intake series 4ch amp (for 4 speakers)
    2x kicker S12l7 12's
    Headunit - Alpine CDA 9827
    Front speakers = Infinity kappa 50.5cs 51/4
    Back speakers jbl power series P8652 5x7/6x8

    I was also thinking about using dynamat or a cheaper alternative on my entire car ( im talking about removing seats, carpeting, doing every inch) but i'm not sure how much it would improve sound quality and performance because I'm in a 1994 Ford Mustang Convertible so I figure whats the point of using sound dampeners save the trunk when sound can very easily travel through my soft convertible top... Anyhow let me know what you guys think before I hit the button to order this stuff. I think so far I have a pretty solid setup althought I'm not sure if I'm going to need a deep cycle battery? new alternator? or a capicator to handle this power...guess i'll find out once install is done. This is going to be the first real audio system iv'e had so im still new to all this.

    Everyting looks good to me. You may want to get something other than the audiobahn amp. Even though you have a drop top you may still want to use the dynamat, It will lower your road noise some. Like you said I would install it then I would upgrade the alt. and battery.

    a new alt would be fine. Thats if you have a good battery with good cca's. No caps,not worth it

    i dissagree with your comment on the audiobahn amp, ive had experience with their intake series and they do put out their rated power and proved quite reliable. just cant say the same about their subs..
