Alpine CDA-7864 Headunit
Kenwood 1782 6.5" speakers in the doors
Panasonic EAK-WG25 10" subwoofer
Kenwood 100w amplifier
Custom (read: really ugly but functional) sub box
Monster Cable wiring

Pretty happy with the whole mess, not really enough sub power and the box is too large, but pretty decent for a first attempt. The headunit tears it up - I get nothing but compliments and the SQ is incredible for onboard power.

reminds me of the system I had in my tempo. two tens in screwy boxes powered by a 250 watt amp. I now have a ten in a costum box I made myself (its dont right) powered by the same 250 watt amp. I havent installed it yet but Im buying the wiring kit tonight and should have it installed tomarrow.

the Box I built for the ten, is incredible. It puts out more sound then my two tens I had before. Although the 200watts I have oushing arent even close to the speakers max....there is a very nice sound. I cant wait till Wensday, I get to put my CAI on....I guess once you start you really cant stop.

I just got my Polk Audio/Momo component set in the mail yesterday. Here's what they look like http://www.polkmomo.com/mm465.html
The problem is that the woofers/midranges are way to big to put in my doors. The magnets are huge and would hit the window when it's rolled down. I don't want to have to make custom kickpanels because I don't want it to get in the way of my dead pedal. (I have a manual tranny) By the way I have an Aiwa CDC X317 headunit. I'm going to get a two channel amp to run the Momo components. I plan on getting a Momo 12" sub later.

Guess I'll add in my short-but-sweet system...

Alpine CDE-7826E head
Alpine PCXP652 speakers 6.5" (x2)
1.5" tweets on A-pillar

It gets the job done. Don't need the 140dbl subs, just clean sounding tunes. :)

clean sounding???
if you are trying to hint that my system may not be "clean" you are dead wrong. Not only are my highs good, but when my subs hit that clear bass that shakes my whole car and makes the top and sunroof vibrate I think of how much better it is than stock, or "semi-stock" in your case. have a good day ;)

Hold the phone.... I'm not sure why you took my post the way you did, and I apologize if it came off as something other than it was meant to be. If you are perturbed about my "Don't need the 140dbl subs, just clean sounding tunes" statement, that is your business. I simply stated that my "semi-stock" audio system sounds clean to me . I am quite aware what that kind of power can sound like, and it is very impressive when tuned. A lot of blood, sweat, and tears goes into making a system with that much power sound CLEAN. I prefer, as stated in other posts around this Forum, to indulge in performance modifications over audio --- thus only having a basic setup. I did not hint at anything. Lighten up. Enjoy the forum. :)

I am a custom car audio, and mobile video installer at Audio King in St. Paul, MN. I ususally keep up on all the latest gadgets for cars, which is pretty cool I think. I have an Alpine head unit, ran to a BD1000 mono block Rockford power amp. The 1000 pushes three ten inch Rockford HX2 subs, very nicely. The subs are surrounded by a complete custom set up that fills the space of the trunk (which is what trunks are for.......right?) It includes white vinyl rapped around the subs, borderd by red vinyl, and the rest of my entire trunk is bright red crushed velvet to match my car. I also have a punch 400a running my Diamond audio front components w/ flush mount tweets, and pioneer rear speakers for rear fill. I am very pleased with the result of this setup. Monitors are in the near future.

well the last guy has me beat with that sub system but I'm running a Pioneer Premier 740MP, some rockford fosgate 6 1/2s up front, sony's in the rear, a RF 700s amp, two 12 inch RF HE2's, monster cap, all rockford wiring, and rf matrix cabling, 60 bucks for some freakin RCAs, I think if you bought the subs and amp and cap you'd pay around 1200 to 1400 dollars retail, and the 6 1/2s were cheap in comparison at about 220 for both, and 400 for the head unit, but working in the install bay at Best Buy has it's advantages I get those 200 dollar a piece subs at cost :) i have plans to stick a 500x four channel rockford on all the six and a halfs but I want to get rid of all of them first, they couldn't handle what I'm hoping to put into them, i've had that sub system in for two weeks and just blew the first sub, so I'm about to take them all out and work with some buddys of mine with some audiobahm subs and diff amp, and I have about 15 square feet of dynamat in the back but I want to do the whole car so I'll buy another 25 before the end of the summer
