New to car audio and need recomendations

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I drive a chevy silverado '07 crew cab and need help. I am looking for one 10" sub with good quality and good enough bang. I have the bose audio upgrade and don't want to over-run the audio with just bass and don't want loss of quality. I have been looking at the CompVT | KICKER shallow mount 10" and the box 07 & Up New Body Style GM Crew Cab Single Downfire Box. Although i ran into Kicker 10TCVT102 Sealed truck enclosure with one 10" CompVT subwoofer at Crutchfield.com and I'm not sure how that would fit in my truck or the quality of it as well. Also, I need help finding an amp, I was recommended a mono JR audio 500 watt amp but I have no idea where to start finding that and a good price. I need to know what else I have to buy as well, such as a wiring kit and what kind. And on a final note I need help finding a good place to install. I heard Fry's is a good place but I'm not positive.

 

Thank you for any help and taking the time to read my post :D

 

edit: I am also confused on where the Kicker 10TCVT102 fits in my truck, does it go under the seats in the same spot as the custom box?

Sounds familiar!

I was looking at doing similar stuff back in late November, but decided to put off doing anything for a bit and spend my time here, and elsewhere, reading/researching.

Sure glad I did....you can do a lot better than a prefab box and Kicker CompVT's...and for the same price, or even less.

 

There are much better subs for going sealed (Dayton HO's just as one example), and I would suggest a 12" or even a couple 8s for a crew cab truck. The right 10" will be okay, but you aren't going to get very loud with it...

      I have a Yukon 2003 that has 3 rows so space is tight between the 3rd row and the hatch rear door. I have no big three upgrade.  I am using 4 Gage OFC from the battery to the fuse and CCA Gage from that point to a secondary battery that runs in parallel, the cca to amp. I run short grounds of CCA 4Gage from the battery to a threaded seat post that has had the zinc cleaned off so it is all metal to metal contact. I use a Alpine mrx1000 so 1000 rms monoblock to power a W6V3 and I have just bought a used W7 10" in a ported box. My concern is that I am not getting enough power but the the W7, it is rated at 750 rms. Should this system do for what I need? I have heard of Head units clipping , how do I know if mine is ? Am I getting enough power to the sub? I did hear some clipping when I was trying to tune my amp/ gain so I feel enough power did make it to sub but want to get your thoughts on this. Im just tryint to make sure that I am not bottlenecking or losing power.

      I just bought a used w7 in a ported box that actually sounds pretty good. Thing is it’s a bit punchy for my taste. The box is 14x15x17 and the port is maybe 2”. I usually like 2 c/ft for a 12 at about 32 to 34 hz so I’m thinking that either a longer box like 28” with a larger port maybe 3” might bring that less punchy and more soft deep bass I’m looking for. Can someone design one for me? My capabilities are 14w x15h x40 deep - please help, thanks - also, does this forum work on tapatalk

      So I recently purchased 4 Polk Audio DB652's for my 2012 Subaru Impreza (with a stock in-dash stereo). I like them but I wanted more out of them so I purchased a Pioneer D9605 5 channel amp. I chose this amp because I wanted to see more output from my current 4 door speakers and a sub woofer that I am planning on getting (Rockford Fosgate P3D4 12"). I feel like I got my amp without being well informed on other factors and was wondering what some great car enthusiast think of my purchases and car audio goals. Ask any questions that I would need to further clarify to help y'all help me!  Also, are the Polk door speakers I got that great?
      All help and recommendations are very much appreciated!!!
      P.s. I don't have a large knowledge of car audio if it isn't yet obvious.

      Hello folks! I'm currently putting together a modest SQ build and have run into a bit of a snag with subwoofer, enclosure, and amplifier selection and would greatly appreciate some advice on the matter. The snag is my lack of familiarity with the current "good brands" and the strange lack of shops willing to demo SQ subwoofers or their "high end" subwoofers. While the overall goal is excellent sound quality, I am an oldschool basshead at heart and still want exceptional levels of loud when the mood strikes me. I have, over a few decades, owned various sizes of subwoofers and enclosures and have found that they all have their own merrits however, my favorite subs/enclosure were 2 Soundstream SS10R's (circa mid nineties) sealed with a 600w monoblock supplying the juice. I would love to have something that either matches the level of output and accuracy of that set up or exceeds it, in terms of sonic transparency, as well as the ability to compliment my front stage set up and rattle some door parts loose. I have access to Arc Audio, Hertz, Focal, FI, DD, DA, JL, Audio Frog, Sun Down, and Fosgate.  I would prefer to stay within a budget of $1500 for sub(s) and amplifier. The environment is a 2018 Mustang GT, and I have, roughly 3 cubic feet to use for enclosure space. The build, so far, is as follows:
      •Hertz Mille pro 163.3 three way front stage fully active.
      •Arc Audio XDi 1200.6
      •Arc Audio PS8 DSP
      Any help would be greatly appreciated!
