  1. View Listing McIntosh MSS471 and JBL 2118H McIntosh 6.5” 2-way passive comp set. Plastic piece that holds spade terminal on one woofer was broken in transit to me. Fixed with E6000, no problem. $225 shipped to lower 48 JBL 2118H 8” mids. Decent shape for their age. $75 shipped to lower 48 $280 shipped for both. Would much rather trade for something interesting, like small subs, high end 3”-4” mids, multi-channel higher end amps, or whatever might catch my eye...

  3. Maybe throw the Audiofrog GS series in your list as well...

    Recommendation

    I have heard that the SI are stunning and dig low in very small boxes, although I’ve read that they don’t want one watt more than recommend RMS...

    Anyone try the new Anarchy 5" yet?

    Purposefully resurrecting this thread as it seems diysoundgroup.com is looking to downsize/streamline their webpage and product line. I would encourage any of you that have used or even heard any of their drivers (Anarchys), or their flat packs, to go on the webpage and provide some reviews for those products. He says it’s becoming too many products to manage by himself, so if there are no reviews on certain items, they may be cut from being offered. He also mentioned that he is fulfilling current orders, but is going to take a few weeks off to reorganize inventory, update the website, etc. If you have thought about trying the Anarchy drivers, or any of his products, you should definitely jump on the site ASAP, and give a quick review of the products you are familiar with. I don’t have a dog in this fight, but I hate to see any future options for awesome gear be taken from all of us, simply because we didn’t give feedback for others in our hobby.

    What happened to Car Audio Forum???

    Nope. Went to new format, and I can hardly get around in here at all...
  7. I don’t know a lot about them. I found them in one place online, said they sold for $400 new. They could almost pass for new except for mounting screw holes. Crossovers look like they were never used, as do the tweeters, which look like there are 2 sets of mounting cups. Cutout template has never been used, and owners manual is still in original plastic sleeve. Looks like they advertise 120 watts max, so I’m assuming 60 watts rms, which I’m assuming would be full range. Stickers on the back of the 6.5’s are in excellent shape as well. If someone used this set, it was lightly, and not for very long. If I don’t sell or trade before I find a truck for winter, I’ll be using them. Here are a couple more pics...
  8. I have an old school set of McIntosh 2-way components that I’m not going to be using if you are interested. One of the plastic pieces that holds the spade was damaged during shipping, but was fixed with some E6000.
  9. If you have the time to do it right, and that’s how you’re going to tackle this, get on DIYMA and read the Sound Deadener Shootout thread. Then watch the youtube video by Richard Vedvick about deadening car doors and killing the backwave. Use the info from both of those, and you should end up with a perfectly deadened car, ready for any equipment you put in!
  10. I totally agree with Jeff’s recommendations, although I went about it one step differently. I ordered all my sound deadening material and wiring/distro blocks etc. first, and installed that while I was waiting for other pieces to come in the mail! That let me get familiar with taking my car apart, so when the speakers and amps got to me, I had already seen where things would fit, and I could take my interior apart quickly to install.
  11. I have not heard much good about Audison DSP’s. Since it’s your first go round, take a look at the new Dayton, miniDSP, or Helix. Helix is the king of the hill, but great reports about the Dayton piece are coming out.

    Free-air sub setup- Is this legit?

    I have 2 GB12’s firing through the 6x9 holes in the rear deck of my Camaro. I’m basically using the 11.3 cu ft of my trunk as the box. If it was true IB I would have to vent to the outside, but I haven’t been that brave yet. Takes a lot less power, and gets super low easily.

    Do it bro! The presale price was $600 on all his new amps. Now they are pretty proud of them. I haven’t seen any reviews from anyone yet, so I’m not even sure how many people are using them. If you have no budget, you should definitely look at Revelation Audio amps...
