Hey all, please don't harp on me too bad for being a cheapskate as often as I can be, but here is my setup right now and what I'd like to add to it:
Pioneer (I don't remember the model #) 6.5" fronts (10 years old I think), and Pioneer TS-A6965R 6x9 rears (still on their way here from Amazon) all run by a Pioneer DEH-P7400MP Headunit (also 10 years old I think). I'm just learning about sub stuff, and never even considered one until I pulled the HU out the other day to make sure I had the AUX port to hook up external stuff to it and saw all the RCA jacks available. kinda got my mental wheels spinning of excitement to play with new stuff.
I ordered a CD-RB10 to use with my new little, and I mean little mp3 player. I'm not a gadget guy at all (have an old LG VX8300 cell phone that I hardly use), but dearly want to stop burning CD's just to have music in the truck. I do have about 60 or so Gig of mp3's from many years of ripping all I've bought from music festivals, amazon, ebay, you name it.
Oh, the truck. It's a 1991 Toyota SR5 Extended Cab (the usual 4wd v6). I'm a seriously basic listener that has been satisfied for way too many years with a pair of OLD Jensen 160w (60RMS) 6x9's in the sides of the extracab. By the way, these were great for me, just to give you an idea of what I was used to until they completely blew out. Just for fun I'll try to upload the images of these seriously rotted out beauties. anyway, I'm looking at the Legacy LWF10X 10'' 400 Watt Legacy ''L'' Series Woofer (Set of 1) , OR the GRS 10PR-8 10" Poly Cone Rubber Surround Woofer (I'd link to them but new posters aren't allowed to do that) but I don't know how to match an amp to it for REAL cheap. $25 or less anyone? Also not sure where I am going to put it. I'd love to just stuff it under one of the seats (or get two for both seats), but that would be just a raw speaker under there with nothing around it at all. (How bad is that anyway? I understand subs need a box to reverb in and do what they're intended to do), but would it just be a complete waste of a speaker?
Tired of CD's. Just picked up a Sandisk Sansa Clip Zip to put microSDHC cards in (Up to 32GB I think it max's at.) that so I can load it up and play without skips, scratches, 'n no muss no fuss. "set it 'n forget it" kind of thing.
Okay on to uploading those old Jensen JTX3269 images... Wow. that's so much easier than uploading to Amazon's discussion. for me anyway.
Well, that's a start to post here, as I really want to get this stuff going while my dash is still disassembled.
Thanks enormously to anyone who feels the need to educate the new guy. ("The HI ME project" - Get Smart movie).
p.s. Ideally, the amp to drive whatever sub will also come from Amazon, as I have a lot of points to spend with them.
