    Icon32 stolen system

    Two weeks ago I had my system stollen from me. It was over $1500 worth of car audio. I had a high end pioneer premier, Rockford amp 500@2, 4 audio bahn 6 1/4's, and a custom built box. This system was my baby through high school as I paid for it on my ****** 7.50 an hour high school salary. The box was probably the best thing out of the group cause it my the little audiobahns quake. Anyway getting to the point my insurance will be giving me money towards a new system. I ball park it at $1200. I'm looking to revamp the system more for Sq than for dbl's. My purpose is to seek suggestions on the best system I can get for around 2 grand. I was thinking along the lines of audiobahn, boston acoustics, infinity... that kinda ball park. Possibly MP Quarts for highs and JL W6's for subs. Thanks I need a lil help it's been a ****** week!!!

    sounds like your heading in the right direction so far..mb quarts are good componets as are infinity and alpine....good choice on the sub as well.....for the amps i would probably recomend pheonix gold for the componets and jbl for the subs....and almost any cd player will work...jus dependson what your looking for...good luck

    To add to the list of good components for the highs, I've heard good things about:
    Rainbow
    Crystal
    Focal

    Oh, and if you think $7.50 an hour is bad, try busting your @$$ off all day long (smashing a huge slab of concrete in a parking lot, tearing down walls, etc) for just $5.15 an hour. I hate my job, but hey, it's money . I just can't wait till mid- September, then it gets easy, and who knows, I might get a raise.



    No one likes you, go away .

    When you're working on a budget, its better to just get one good sub IMO. Power it right and maximize its ability the best you can. That will leave you plenty of money to get nice high end speakers up front. That's how I feel about SQ setups anyways.



    I'm never wrong, EVER! Just ask me.

    jbl 600.1 1 adire shiva = 300 (sub + bass amp) kicker infinity alpine all make a great affordable component set for under 200 on line. head unit i would lean more towards panasonic alpine eclipse pioneer and kenwood all make dependable stuff. components amp jbl 80.2 at about a 100. now u are thinkin gees this guy is dumb.. i said 2g's not one...remember the instalation get good quality stuff and get the components in kickpanels. also you can get 2 shivas and a jbl 1200.1 for about 500 or so but that depends on what you are looking for..and if you are not sure about the "installation" DO NOT be affraid to take it to someone that is good..it may cost a lil bit more but i would take what i recommended installed very well over high dollar stuff installed poorly any day

    K so far I'm pretty sure I'm going with a Pioneer Deh-8400MP for the HU. I'm also thinking about an Infinity Perfect 12'. It takes 1400 peak and 350 RMS. I looked around at amps but I don't know the optimal power handling I need. I like the audiobahn and Phoenix gold amps but maybe a JBL would do. I know Phoenix Gold and PPI are much better than the other two but price might also be a factor because I still need to do my mids and highs. Any suggestions?

    I'm in Fort Myers. I might be having second thoughts on my decisions. All the audio shops have been pushing me into the same direction. 3 shops want me to go with
    1 JLW6 with an 800 watt fosgate amp. Then they pointed me to an Eclipse model instead of the pioneer. Some of the new sony's are nice too. The MEX-1HD seems cool since you wouldn't need cd's anymore. Each shop told me that the new sony decks were alot nicer than the problem infested decks from 2001 and previous. I only can go with certain brands due to my insurance company so I can't go with shiva's or any other smaller name brands.

    that is illegal for your insurance company to do but if you dont wanna press the issue type r's are great they are from alpine they make a good type r component set and the jbl would eat the fosgate up no contest

    Put aside some change for an alarm if you can, that'll help stop a majority of the smash and grab punks....

    Ascendant Audio Atlas/Avalanche

    Oz Audio Matrix Elite

    Alumapro (not sure which line but I've heard good things about their SQ)

    Image Dynamics IDQ/IDMAX

    Adire Audio Shiva/Brahma

    CDT Audio HD series

    Diamond Audio D6/D9 lines

    All very worthy subwoofer choices.
