    Anyone running NVX speakers

    Yea haven't had much luck on other forums either. Seems to be relatively new brand and not high end so it's hard to get good info. I agree all their other equipment I've seen has bee nicely built. I feel they fit in that weird space of Nicer than low end but not quite as nice as mid level. For $80 may give them a try.

    Anyone running NVX speakers

    Planning a new build and I was going to pull all equipment out of my truck to reuse, but then I'd have to buy new equipment to replace prior to selling. I'm looking at doing a budget build. Planning on taking my pioneer headunit and NVX JAD900.5 amp and leave the rest. I was really impressed by the amp so I started looking into what else they offer. They have a pretty cheap set of component speakers, NVX VSP65 looks like a solid speaker for the price range, and the rear doors take 6x8 so figured I'd get the NVX VSP68 as well. Going to run them with a Sundown SA-8 V3. Just looking to see if anyone else runs them. Seem to have pretty good reviews.

    Need Help with a new build

    Yea, I figured, I'll just run with it. The system in my scion was so heavy on an already heavy vehicle. Not looking to get into all that again, at least not for a while. Also I saw a post from Jacob at sundown saying underpowering the subs you could do a slightly larger box. Website Recomments .5-.75 cu on rated rms or slightly more, what about slightly less could I do like .8-1cu or keep it at the recommended?

    Need Help with a new build

    Yea I have no problem building my box. The 8s more or less for space saving. My previous vehicle I was running two sets of Rockford fosgate t2 components, rf power t400.4, two rf power t1000.1 one for each sundown sa-12. All in a scion tc. Not super high end, but I spent a good bit on that setup. Now I'm focusing more or less on a lower budget build just want something decent not really looking to get crazy loud. I think I'll try the sa-8 out and worse case sell it and move up to a 10 or 12.

    Need Help with a new build

    I'd like to keep the whole build under $500, which is why I wanted to reuse what I have.
  6. I'm getting a 10-13 Mazda 3 Hatchback pretty soon now. I'm trying to decide if I want to keep my current system or upgrade it. Just looking for some advice. Current system Pioneer AVH-X4700BS headunit NVX JAD 900.5 5 channel amp 75w x 4 at 4ohm 440w x 1 at 2ohm Polk audio db 6.5 components and coaxial Sundown SD3-10 in underseat truck box. Option one would be swap the shallow sd3-10 for a sundown sa-8 v3 in a ported box, how would it be on 440w at 2ohms. Maybe swap the 6.5" coaxial for 6x8 coaxial for rear door. I'm sure the ported sa-8 would have more bang then the 10 in a sealed box, cheapest option option two would be upgrade the amp and do the sa-8. I want to keep a 5 channel for easy and less space. I was looking at the hifonics brutus btx 60w x 4 at 4ohm and 750w at 2ohm 1000w at 1ohm, loose power to speakers but gain power in sub stage or the soundstream t5.2500DL 75w x 4 at 4ohm, 500w at 2ohm and 750w at 1ohm. would cost a bit more but is the cost of a new amp worth the gain? option three upgrade to one of the amps and do the x-8, most costly of the three options. Any other options, I want to keep a 5-channel amp and do a single 8" as long as I can do that I'm open to any suggestions. I'm happy with the speakers so don't really find a need to change them. just looking for my best option for low end. Not looking for SPL or SQ just something that's easy to listen to without breaking the bank.
