    300dollar amp and (self) install budget recommendations

    Rockford Fosgate R400-4D $125.00 - $150.00. 75w RMS @ 4ohms per channel, but mine was highly underrated. Birthsheet was at 610 RMS. I Had this in my car pushing Maximos for a few days before I upgraded to higher watt speakers. Semi compact, clean power, and leaves room in the budget for other things. Leaves room budget wise for some good 0 gauge OFC to distro block and distro block to whatever gauge wire your amp needs (prep for the sub amp). Some nice RCAs and quality speaker wire should also fit in the budget with any ferrules/ring terminals/heat shrink thats needed. Power t400X4ad $220 - $340.00 100w per channel @ 4 ohms. (currently in my commuter, excellent amp) -Super Compact. Manufacturer refurbished can be had at $220.00. Rockford R300X4 AB Prime 4 $110.00 - $130.00. Rated at 50w RMS @ 4 ohms per channel but again all Rockford amps have been underrated for me. I also own this amp. Birthsheet at 421w RMS. I would suggest the Pioneer GM FD series but I went through three of them. Channels kept failing and then I gave up on it. Plus these are noisy from my experience. Other than that I've also had experience with an Infinity reference amp that was okay. I didn't give it a chance due to the cosmetics of the amp.
  7. I love Noico 80. Perfect thickness. 1 layer in some areas 4 layers in other areas. I dropped 144 sq ft in my commuter.
  8. I wouldn't buy Hertz Mille Pros from WoofersETC. I returned the set I order from them. My issue was that they cut out every serial number on the packaging and speakers with a sloppy razor blade. They never mentioned this before ordering. How is that new unopened packaging? They also replaced the original serials with cheaply printed serials and covered up the cutouts with these fake serials. They stated that their distributor had to remove serials due to the low price and not adhering to the prices mandated by Hertz. I really do not care about the excuses being true or not. There is no manufacturer warranty and no way to confirm authenticity which is a deal breaker for me. With that said, the speakers are amazing. I have MPK 165.3 in front, and MPX 165.3 in rear. Running the comps passive. Sound is excellent. I do have a ton of deadener though throughout the car. I lost 7 MPG from the additional weight from 3 layers of deadener. The amp im using is the T400X4ad. Amp is rated at 100w RMS x4 @ 4ohm. Birth sheet has 132w RMS per channel. $210-$350 for amp (manufacturer refurb or new) $300-$500 for speakers (authorized dealer or other?) Head unit, There are so many with the specs you require. I would most likely pick up a Kenwood or Pioneer for whichever was cheaper that met my needs/wants.

    Forgot to add photos to first post. Ignore the power distribution as it is unfinished. Still need to install my distribution blocks that arrive late. Flip down AVI player is for the little ones.

    What brands do people like for HU's?

    Any decent double din HU head unit with wireless Android auto/ Apple car play. I hate wires. I also required a rear video output and zone audio. I went with a Pioneer 4400NEX since at the time it was cheaper than the Kenwood equivalent and it checked all my boxes.

    Conclusion to my problem: I ended up picking up a T400X2ad 2 channel amp for starters. I figured I would order a DSP in a week or so to keep everything under the spouses radar. I hooked up up my front comps to the 2 channel amp to test it before installing it. The high end crackle/static was non-existent on the 2 channel amp. At this point I'm thinking it might have been a bad connection to the 4 channel amp. So I removed the 2 channel amp and hooked up the 4 channel amp again making sure all the connections were solid. The static/crackle at high volumes is present again. I placed an ordered for a replacement T400X4ad. I didn't want to return the 4 channel amp until I tried a new unit. I installed the new 4 channel amp today (same model). It looks like I just had a bad amp because I have absolutely no issues with the new 4 channel amp. The amp I am having issues with is still within the return window with Amazon so all is well. I never thought it was the amp, I though that as long as its delivering power its good to go. Perhaps it was an issue with some of the internal electronics of the amp? I don't think I will use the 2 channel amp now, my stock 120 amp alternator most likely doesn't need more of a load than it already has. I am now happy with the sound in my vehicle. I may sneak the 2 channel into the wife's car with a set of Morel Ultra 602 Integra's. I've been wanting to try those and needed an excuse.

    I listen to Flac audio via USB and Google Music depending on what I feel like listening to. 6.5 and coax are in the door factory locations. Tweeters are in factory location firing up to windshield. I tested the tweeters in multiple locations via the supplied pods, but I liked the factory location better for multiple reasons. I really don't want anyone to see my audio nor do I want to see my audio. The only time I get the hiss, crackle or the static sound is at full volume and only during vocals and it is fairly rare on vocals. Adele Flac albums for example (don't judge). When Adele starts screaming I get light crackling. My head unit has the front and rear speakers crossed over at 63hz with 12db slope. I do not use the crossovers on my amps. I purchased the additional mic for the head unit auto tuning. I like the head units auto tuning better than my tuning so I kept it with a few changes to the crossover settings. I measured the timings set by auto tune and they were right one. I haven't really played with the EQ settings myself on the head unit, and I probably should.
