Hello everyone! I have a 2006 mazdaspeed 6, and while looking for more info on the Rainbow Germanium's - and a place to buy them - I was directed here, with specific mention of CarAudio.com member Don (6spdcoupe).
I haven't had an exceptional sound systems before, but I plan to make this car sound fairly acceptable. Currently I just have the stock 'premium' bose audio system (ie crap EQ'd to hell), and in the back a 12" type-r powered by a 600w phoenix gold amp in a custom ported enclosure tuned to 32Hz. I'll probably eventually switch this out for something better when the funds become available.
First up I plan on sound deadening my car (looking at using Second Skin Damplifier, any comments on this?) because it already rattles like crazy with the music turned up a bit, and I've only got 3k miles on it.
Then, as I've mentioned, I'm looking to get the Rainbow Germanium's up front, without any rears. No idea what amp to use yet, and I've never installed speakers so I may just be too worried to do it myself. And I'm certainly anxious about the workload for the sound deadening. I hear it's rather difficult in my car.
Anyone in the VA area with installation experience, if you could help me out down the line I would greatly appreciate it.
