I rescently started putting a system in my mustang 5.0 1987 heres what i have.
Yes these are RMS FIGURES
Audiobahn A3451 head unit- 50x4 watts RMS
AUdiobahn A2300hct- 2400x1 or 1200x2 watts RMS
2 Audiobahn Aw1208t Subs (1500watts each RMS)
Audiobahn acap 20- 5 farad capacitor
Alpine SPR-175A (in Door) 6.5" componet speakers, and tweeters (50 watts rms)
Here is my questions?
First what size fuse/circuit breaker do i need between the capacitor and the battery? The amp has 4. (40) amp fuses built in (amp draws between 140-160 amps continuos) I dont know what size fuses to put in do i also need a fuse between amp and cap? (running zero gauge wire between battery and cap)
Also the 1987 5.0 has 6x8/5x7's speakers in the rear, and 3.5" speakers in the dash and i have no idea what kind of speakers to put in. I will not keep the stock stuff, and plan on rewiring to. I want excellent sounding speakers but if u read the discription i already have lots of bass although midbass is important to me. Chances are i will end up running 5x7/6x7 and 3.5" off the same rear channel off the deck, so it will probly have around 50 watts each. My friends suggest (eclipse, mb quart, focal, polk, but i am also interested in alpine and audiobahns) How do these speakers compare, my friend talked me out of buying audiobahn with out a reall good reason? What do you guys suggest i want good sounding 5x7/6x8 and 3.5"s. Any suggestion? I am willing to spend some money within reason but no outrageous prices, at this point i was leaning towards alpine s 3.5's and alpine r 5x7's but i really need a second oppinion because all my friends have biased opinions and all the stereo places want to sell me the most exspensive **** of course. PLease help
I would like to hear what you guys think?
I will appreciate any help you guys can give me thanks.
