yeah they right about pioneer but staying closer to the $150 u can find the sony mex100 (i think it is) it actual does 40rms x 4 has small separate amp i believe.. my kenwood x301 can be found $119 or so has time alignment, hp and lp xovers, 13 band eq, 24 bit da converter and 4v preamps, bt, usb it's real good for the $.. get the sony if u can find it on sale, found one on ebay for $168, look around..

Or Pioneer FH-S701BS if you want a double din. All active network capable, 4 volt pre outs, 24 bit dacs, 13 band EQs, time alignment etc...

 

Personal experience with the jvc 340bts, not that far off from my 80 prs sound quality wise after tuning. The JVC actually has Q factor in the EQ which actually puts it above the pioneer alternative for tuning capability. The JVC has a more relaxed/mellow/warm kind of sound while the pioneer will have a much brighter sound from the start with no tuning so its your preference there, head units do have their own sound signatures.


09 Sienna Subs : Four Team Ascendant 18s......Sub amp: Two Taramps 15k

Headunit: Pioneer 80PRS......Mids/Highs two pioneer gm 8604 bridged, one at 4 ohms bridged one at 2 ohms bridged, one ppi 600.2 for tweets.

320 amp Singer alt....... 1 group 34 under the hood 6 group31 agms in the back 560 amp hours total.

Just ordered the Jvc x350s and I also ordered those silverflutes and tweeters. Any good budget 4 channel you have in mind ? Also how much power can those tweeters and silverflute 6.5 handle

ikr? his sig says 2 taramps 15k's. When i was a sound guy for live bands, the biggest rig i ran was right at 30k watts, but that was on 220v and SEVERAL crown and QSC amps to EV hi-pacs(six sets of dual 15"s and 2" compression horns) and 6 dual 18 compression wedge sub boxes. Ran that rig for about 5 years. Crazy to think that a person has that much power running just the subs in a Sienna :)

those have much more powerful power supplies along with a direct wall AC connection for unlimited power. My van's current capabilities is around 6k watts ish. I literally only have half the electrical needed to run my gear properly. my AGMs are dying, low resting voltage, one is already dead and out etc... Overall electrical needs a serious complete overhaul. Not to mention there's zero engine space for any more alts. So literally i never even got close to the full potential of this setup due to electrical. Sadly i'm not spending any money on anything car audio related in awhile other than that dayton dsp.

gotcha. and yes, those crowns and QSC's were right at clipping for the last third of all the shows on those EV cabs. Theyd seriously pump
