First post here, long time reader. I just purchased a new Pioneer Avic-N1 for my 2000 expedition. I also got 4 pioneer 6x8's for the doors. What I am looking for now is a good quality sub or 2 along with a good Amp to push all this.
I went down to the place that I thought I was going to install at and he was pushing me on Xplods. I am not a big Sony fan to begin with and with all the negative feedback I have seen here halted me contracting him to install. I would be open to any quality shops that you know of in the Los Angeles or Orange County areas.
Amp wise, I was looking at a 5 channel 1200 amp from Soundstream, but its a bit more then what I would like to spend at this time. I need suggestions on the Amp and Subs, a possible place to get all of this set up. (not sure I will have the time to do this myself)
Also, for those with Expeditions or friends of owners, where is a good spot to install the subs? I have seen a box that fits into the side back wall, I have seen one that goes on the ceiling, I have see the boxes set up behind the 3rd seat, but not much else. Can I install the subs in the lift gate? How would the sound be from there? Would I be better off with just going with a box behind the 3rd row? Where are some good, hidden spots for the Amp if I did want to go with a hidden install?
I have searched for several days now on a quality system at an affordable rate, but have been lacking these last few areas. Please help)
Thanks for any suggestions and Thanks for all the enjoyment and learning thusfar.
