    I also carry Dyn audio if that's your preferance but be prepared to drop mire than you think Closer to $2300 for the escotar set These are prolly one of the best sound reproduction components on the market and if set up right it will be like having a concert in your car. The phd components are very nice as well. But I don't have the high end set that you might be looking for Send me a pm and I can give you some prices on these sets as well as some cdt Es golds. Dls or a set of the hertz Mille

    What kind a vehicle are you getting an install in? Most likely you could eliminate rear fill to cut down on cost especially with that high of quality front setup, and you running a sub rear fill in a car is really not necessary IMO.

    How about, going to a competition and demoing some sq cars....
    Like the sound, ask what they are running



    "When I listen to a stereo loudspeaker playback in my room and an auditory scene has formed in my mind, how would I know that what I hear is an accurate replica of an auditory scene that could be had at the recording venue? Or more generally, that this is an auditory scene that could have existed at all?"

    infinity Qx56 is the SUV. I understand what you mean about reducing cost by eliminating rear fill, but this is an SUV. I think it needs to be there. Im not going "expensive on rear fill any way...$1000 at most. However, I'm not sure what you mean by saying a "sub rear fill in a car is really not necessary? Where would the SUB go? Perhaps you were assuming this was going in a car, and not an SUV?

    Yes, I think that is a great idea. Forgive me for my ignorance, but how often do they have these competitions and how do you find out about them. I would love to check these out.

    Re: Help choosing tweeter reflecting off front windshield: $5k total budget for amp+c

    Why not take 500$ of that budget and go to a big SQ event/competition somewhere and get a look/listen to see what people are doing. It's really a small investment given your budget to really see what works and what does not and get some ideas of what sort of equipment can be made to sound good.

    Also if I were throwing that kind of dough at a SQ install I would NOT be without the Pioneer dex-p99rs for head unit. it is an incredibly powerful tool to give you all the processing you'll ever want.

    There's dozens of good quality components and IMO proper location, deadening treatment, and testing and tuning with some good processing will get you what you want with brand being a secondary concern. I'm not a huge JL fan, but their stuff is solid (if overpriced) and you might as well get their multichannel amp to match cosmetically with the one you already have.

    Why would he need 500$ to go to a competition? Dspectating is free.

    Look in the events category here, and over at diyma
    Also at MobileAudioForum
