    Help me choose my setup!

    Or say screw their products, buy your own online and pay them JUST for the install like someone mentioned earlier. If you feel comfortable enough to spec out your own box i would do that too, it could save a good chunk as well. Do not let them talk you into a prefab box. You could have the best sub in the word and slap it in a prefab and would probably sound shitty.

    Head unit turning volume down?

    They just cut it? That's all you have to do to cancel the ANC on the bose centerpoint system at the amp. I should note that the shop that does my installs is a very reputable Arc Audio dealer in my area. I did not do any install myself. I suspect i may need to do a big 3 upgrade that would help my trunk light dimming. Im running 6x9s and 6.5s in series for my backfill since my sub is running bridged on 5&6. Perhaps not enough power to split on big bass drops?

    Head unit turning volume down?

    Its new generation 2014 Chevy impala, it does have the ANC but the shop that installed it took care of the ANC on it. So im thinkin im clipping. It's a 1200.6 amp and i did NOT do any electrical upgrades. I noticed my trunk dome light dims on very bass heavy songs. No headlights or cabin lights dimming. So maybe i need to upgrade electrical? It's a stock 150amp alternator.
  4. Im running an Arc Audio 1200.6 with an idmax 12 and an LC7 to GM MyLink. For some reason on certain tracks when im barely at half volume, it turns the volume down by itself.

    Which amp for Image Dynamics

    Yeah im really hype to be adding the PS8 and the PSC! The GM MyLink is giving me issues with the LC7 and i want to fix my imaging as well add a second set of tweeters to my backstage. Then im putting the two idmax on their own X2 mono. Next year im hoping to get another XDi 1200.6 to go full active.

    Sorry i did not see that i quoted you lol. But when i first started getting into it i had a cheapo pair of e10s and i liked them at first and then i had one u12. I just felt like they were a little too overpowering for me. But those are the only sundown products I've owned. I like my ID because it blends very nicely with my system and still has sufficient spl for me. I also got it on a good deal from a dealer in Oregon for less cash than the U12 which was a big factor also.

    And MUCH better gear. If you want good SQ with a good blend of SPL, i would definitley do ID over Sundowns imo. I ran sundowns and loved em, but the bass is a bit muddy for me and not as clear as i wouldve liked. They're plenty loud tho, for sure.

    Speakers and amplifier/amplifiers - Arc Audio Subwoofer - Image Dynamics Idmax Line HU - Alpine You could probably do that and have enough for a ps8 dsp depending on what speakers you buy. You could look online for an Arc Audio dealer in your area and see if they'll give you better prices than their online site (usually do). I just love Arc and ID products lol.

    I have an Idmax 12 on an Arc Audio 6ch and it sounds damn good. If you can, i would maybe save a little more and do the Idmax 10 instead of the id or idqs. Imo they're significantly cleaner and louder in a custom sealed enclosure. Mine is ported tho but I'm going to be doing 2 12s sealed.
  11. Hello, new to the forum and pretty new to car audio. But im just curious if anyone here is running the NavTV unit for GM and wondering what your thoughts and experiences are with it. I'm going to be adding an Arc Audio PS8 to my system and my local shop tells me i should get NavTV too but i dont feel like I'll really need it with the PS8. Thanks!
