    Hi, Im new, need advice please.

    Hi,

    Im new to posting on these forums, but I have been researching the forums for about 6 months.

    I must say I am very happy to have found you guys, I've learned plenty. Now that I have the money to make the purchases for my car audio, I figured I would run it by you guys first.

    My car is a 1988 Madza RX7 (FC), its very small two seater, open hatchback. My main needs are the quality of sound, I don't need anything overpowering. Just Loud CLEAN sound. The front speakers are 4" pointing at my knees (i already understand the implications of such a front stage, but I have no intention to customize speaker location, except the tweeters in the A-pillars). The rear speakers are on the shock towers, they come 4", but can fit up to 8".

    My current list of items to/did buy:
    -Kicker RS4 (2002 Model) Resolution 4" Component Set. <- already purchased!
    -Kicker RMB8 (2002 Model) Resolution Midbass 8" Driver (Pair).
    -Profile CL640 (Clarus Line) Amp 75W X 4 (4 Ohms, 14V)

    Unfortunately I haven't decided on the head unit as of yet (maybe should post this on the HU forum?)

    Deciding between:
    -Clarion DXZ645MP
    -Used Eclipse 5V Head (CD5423, CD 5443, etc.) on ebay.

    So, i guess my question is do you guys think I will be ok with this setup I don't want to pay too much more that what I have listed already. Maybe a Clarion EQ if necessary. But any ADVICE or input is greatly appreciated.

    Jahan

    Thanks and sorry for the long post.

    Re: Hi, Im new, need advice please.

    The pioneer DEH7600MP only has 2V, 100 ohm pre amps as oppossed to the clarion 4V and eclipse 5 V. As far as I have researched, I have heard Pre Amp Voltage make a big difference in sound.

    I appreciate the input, thanks. What do you think of the speaker combo, I want to have as near full frequency as I can with this set up (30Hz-20kHz)

    PS what do you mean by "better" mosfet? Im sorta new at this.

    I think with speakers you have all the areas covered, but you might want 1 10 in sub for the 50-60 hz and below. Other than that it should sound great.

    Re: Hi, Im new, need advice please.

    Thanks pwrmax, I love the 944 (direct competitor to rx7 sec. gen.) I will hopefully go turbo as soon as I need a rebuild, most likely next spring! I was considering a 10 in the spare tire area, maybe a PG Ti.10d, but I would rather do it without the heft, thats why I plan on baffling the RMB8's.

    Thanks for the input

    Outlaw, i couldn't google a deh-7560?? Have a link ?

    If mosfet is internal amp, does it matter since im going external ampa nyway?

    there's no such thing as a DEH-7560
    if you use an external amp then no, the internal one does not matter
