    Good FINAL Setup for my truck?

    Hey, does this sound like a good setup for my truck? I plan on upgrading the amps later on when I get more cash.

    Vehicle: 1997 Nissan Extended Cab Pickup Truck
    Headunit: Pioneer DEH-860MP
    Components: Image Dynamics Chameleons
    Subwoofers: (2) JL Audio 12W7's
    Component Amp: Pioneer GM-X364 (150watts x 2@4ohm)
    Subwoofer Amp: JBL 1200.1
    Battery: Optima Yellow Top
    Wiring: 4AWG Stinger

    I know the amps aren't the best, but they seem like they would do the trick for the time being. 600 watts per w7, and 150 watts for the chameleons.

    sounds god to me as well i think it would be a nice system and the jbl is not to shabby of an amp. but you can get a better amp than that pioneer for less money IMO

    also for just over a buck a foot @ weldingsupply .com i would go with 1/0 awg wire and darvex has very good prices and extremly fast shipping for all youre fuse holder and distro block needs... the 1/0 is nice incase future upgrades occur

    I could get better wiring no problem. The amps I have are only because I own them already. I'd like to get better ones in the future as well.

    Thanks for the opinions. I'm hoping for amazing SQL. THe boxes are going to be sealed.

    2 12's + 1200w in a truck should be loud anyway you put it... unless your competing. you probably wont be able to sit in the truck for any amount of time with it cranked.

    Yeah, you pretty much nailed it in the head. Two 12''s in a truck will be hella-loud. The small cab will make the sound resonate even better I heard. I'm just interested in what this will sound like.
