Greetings and salutations from Jacksonville, Fl. The Name is Justin M. I have been out of the car stereo game for sometime but earlier this year I was bit by the bug for the deep bass and I have been putting my system together ever since. I have a '03 Cadillac Deville (DTS w/ the Bose system.)
I call it my "Frankenstein" system because unless I have had to, I have been using used parts I have brought off of friends, family & Craigslist. So far I have a JL Audio 12w6v2 in a sealed box powered by a Kenwood KAC-8104D. Right now it is all run off the factory deck. I am looking to add a Pioneer AVIC-Z130BT for the head unit.. and Replace my factory speakers with some Kenwood component speakers & power them with a Kenwood Kac-8405.
I like bass but I have never liked it to the point that it over powered my car.. My goal is for my car to sound like my pair of Dre Beats headphones.
I look forward to seeing your ideas and seeing the conversation that are ahead...
