I am now on my second system. The first one I got was crap and I paid WAYYY
too much. It was a JLW3 in a sealed box with a RF250 Watt mono and a phoenix gold line driver. NOOO bang at all. I am replacing it with 2 Kicker 12" L7's (waiting for them to arrive) powered by a RF 550S for each one (I got a good deal on them) . They are going to be in a sealed enclosure. I bought everything and I am waiting for it to come. I have a couple of questions. Can this break my rear window if cranked all the way up after being broken in?( I have a 97 Jetta). Also, what would be the best amps to power these? My ultimate plan is to have a custom ported enclosure built to take up the whole trunk with 4-6 L7's and whatever it takes to run them. Sooooo, if that is my goal, I am going to have to do it bit by bit.... So I might as well buy right.
Also, I have 2 MB Quartz 6.5's in the front and the same in the rear. They are rated for 100 Watts apiece. What is a good amp to run these, and where would I want to mount the amp to run all 4?
I suppose I will get a new head unit eventually because the Clarion I have is not fadable. I had to put a line driver on the W3 cause if I turned the base up on the HU, the Quartz would cut off. I basically think that the knuckle heads at Speed of Sound in Butler, PA flubbed the install. I took it back twice and they still could not diagnose the problem... So I put the line driver on and turned the bass all of the way down on the HU....
The ultimate goal is to play a lil' Slipknot or Mudvayne for all the old ladies in church on Sunday morning--- I'm trying to drown out the organ
