    Icon32 newbie needin help

    hello fellow audiophiles - im new to the boards and car audio in general. I had a few questions about what i should do with my new equpitment if someone could help me out.
    I just bought a pair of Infinity Kappa 62.5i 6" coaxial speakers for the front of my car, Infinity Kappa 692.5i 6x9s for the back, Infinity Kappa Perfect 12.1D 12" dual voice coil subwoofer, Kenwood 7 channel eq, MTX audio Thunder 6152 Amp (for sub), and 36sq ft of Dynamat Extreeme. now i have a good amount of money left for the head unit (looking at the pioneer premier DEH-840MP) and for my sub box, i thought Q-logic looked nice.

    the car is a sweet *** 68' Plymouth Fury - in short, a boat.
    can get pictures for any interested lowrider fans.

    thanks-

    CH

    What kind of help do you need? It looks like you have everything set, just hook it up. Is that your first system? If it is it will sound pretty good.

    oh - one last thing. for mounting the front speakers i have a bit of a problem... there aint enough room in the doors for mounting there due to the window gizmos, and where kickpanels would be installed there are air vents.
    any ideas?

    I would definately say that Q logic makes a great box. Go w/ that and you should be happy. I'd say get the Type 1 sealed

    Headunit I have an Alpine 7874 which is the lower or the lowest of them but I would go with either the alpine or pioneer premiere. As far as the front speaker I have no idea. If you are not familiar with building your own box, you might want to try q-logic but I would build my own.

    Ok as for your mounting dillema,

    Is the inside of this car completly redone and have a nice look to it?? If so find the person that did the interior and have them make you a face small plate to screw into the door. You probably dont really need more than a 1/2" more space so the magnent dosent hit anything. The reason for the person that did the interior is so you can have the face plate carpeted/vinyled to the color of the cars interior. Or you can do it yourself, or you can have a plywood face plate sticking out a bit Either way good luck, you dont wanna give those speakers up if you can use them!!

    As for the headunit look into alpine they are the equivalient of GOD
