    Icon32 Crisp Sound

    I like crisp sounding non-distorted sound, Any suggestions on the sub I should use? I like rock music and want a sub that will get into the higher notes of bass. Any suggestions?

    Cost no object, 12" Image Dynamics IDMax.
    Cost effective, 12" Image Dynamics IDQ.

    Also look into MB Quart PWD's and Infinity Perfects.



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

    it would sound better if the midbass ran to midbass speakers upfront and you left the sub to just doing the bass. As add midbass to the subs will screw the imaging

    if you want good midbass upfront look at putting some 8"s or 7"s up front.

    Would some free-air kicker 8" work good? Any good places to put free-air speakers?

    DO you think the free airs can fit under the seats?

    no you cann't use them like a sub... because they will be playing midbass you'll need to use them like highs. put them in the doors or kicks

    Jl w6 or Alpine Type -R's have really good SQ but the jl has more SPL. Alpine and the Infinitys would could choice price wise.

    KoBan,
    What about your Blueprint? Wouldn't that be good?

    I've watched a couple of "patterns" in car audio lately, at least on the message boards. One is people trading up from their Infinity Perfects, which is why I don't recommend them first any more even for SQ setups. The IDMax is considered by many to be the most musical sub they've ever heard, and it will get PLENTY loud when you need it to. It will play very well into the 100-120Hz range without noticeable strain like other subs. I would try a basic setup with a good sub first before throwing in midbass speakers. The more speakers you throw into the mix, the HARDER it will be to achieve good imaging and sound. I say keep it simple, then move to special midbasses if you truely lack in that area.



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

    hey the whole reason to use a midbas is FOR imaging You run 100-120hz into your subs you'll never get good imaging But they take it fine. Midbass should be upfront with you not coming from the trunk and coming from behind you. midbass is directional.
