    Under-seat Sub Options...

    I think you're right - given the space, i'll just go for a smaller subwoofer. Back to the space issue, i'm now thinking of either a Kicker PX, or Soundstream Picasso Nano amp. Good/Bad iea?

    Under-seat Sub Options...

    It's a Toyota bB (Scion Xb?). There's a surprising amount of room under the seats so i'm going to utilise that (putting the Jack, under passenger seat, in the boot). Since the two woofers suggested above apparently aren't that great, i'll go with the bigger sub under one seat while the amp is under the other. *putting anything in the boot area is not really an option as I specifically bought this car as an economical, practical commuter* Thanks again for the suggestions, but my amateur self, unless there are bad opinions, has tentatively decided on the above mentioned sub/amp combination (Pioneer GM-D9605 & TS-W3003D4). Some input may still be useful here... There is a woodwork bay right next to the bay I work in at my workplace, so I have ready access to the equipment needed to make a custom enclosure. I have plenty of time to plan this as it looks like, to be cost effective, I will be importing the components.
  3. I am wanting to upgrade the factory fitted speakers in my car. The rear speakers are coax. The fronts have mid ranges in the doors, and tweeters in the dash. I can simply replace all four with coax, but i'd like to make the fronts Components. Instead of hunting around in the small confines, can I use a multi-meter/ohmmeter to figure out what impedance, frequency the present crossover is?

    • EITHER

    (Update; I better put the potential Deal Breaker in early - I would require shipping to New Zealand) I can fit a Double Din, but am not really negotiable, I am set on a Single. l've previously had a JVC KD-AVX11, and it seemed perfect for my needs at the time. Now ~ten years on my needs have "evolved"... New needs: *An elaborate media reader (the last thing I want is FILE CANNOT BE OPENED on every second video/song) *Bluetooth *USB input/charging *Pre-amp outputs for Fronts/Rears/Sub *Video output *Video/Camera input *At least some level of sound quality. I'm not an Audiophile (my hearing is actually pretty mediocre), but I did have a single din JVC with a big fold out screen, however the sound quality was terrible. PLEASE AND THANK YOU!

    NO VALUE SPECIFIED

    Under-seat Sub Options...

    Thanks a lot for the replies, they confirmed my suspicions. I've only ever had one subwoofer in a car before, and it was Kappa Perfect 12D vq. I was unsure how to do the fine tuning, so I just had it in a ~1 cu.ft sealed box. It may not be a "legendary" sub, but I think it's probably spoiled me for anything like the ones I originally suggested. Anyway! I was considering putting one of those little Kicker woofers under each front seat, but now I think i'll just use one space for an amp, and the other for a proper subwoofer. I was thinking the Pioneer GM-D9605 & TS-W3003D4. Once again, the space issue, but I can apparently put this sub in a sealed enclosure close to the minimum recommended size. Do any of you have any experience with either of these products?

    Under-seat Sub Options...

    I realise this is a pretty vague question... To put things in to a bit more context; I had a demo of one of these and found it pitiful (more like a gentle hum really): http://soundstream.com/product/rfmp8-0/ Would one of the previously mentioned Kicker Subs provide more spl?

    Under-seat Sub Options...

    Hi. Space was not an issue with my last car. However, now space is limited, so I have to consider other options. Are these any good? (I have no experience with these reflex/radiator type of set ups) https://www.kicker.com/675-comprt-subwoofer-box-4-ohm
