any monkey can buy and bolt on.... an individual creates
!
you have to really ask yourself something when you consider trying to insult me.. do I really seem like the type of person who gives a flying shite covered monkey F*ck about your pointless comment?.. I'll save your deminished intellect the struggle..that'd be a "No"
Anything can be made to fit.... thats what hammers are for silly!
All posts are the view of the writer and not necessarily that of..... actually no, I dont really give a flying flame toasted turd, dont read my posts if you dont like em R-tard.
no one can accuse me of being "two-faced", Ill call you a nob behind your back and to your face... the latter preferably so I can watch you uselessly blow your lid
being directly honest with your opinion may not make you well liked but it will get you appreciated by the worthwhile few with the sense to understand.... Id rather be appreciated for who I am than liked for what I'm not.

A fantastic investment !!! my set up has paid for itself and earned me quite a few quid.
What brand did you purchase ? i bought an AudioControl set up a good few years ago now , i killed the 150 mic and had an upgrade to 160 and no probs so far.

i've got:

alpine 7873 head unit (bought in 2001 and still good!!)

front: hertz esk 165 components

ran off JBL GTO504E bridged to 2 channels

rear standard speakers faded out

JL audio w3v2 12 inch dual 4 ohm voice coil wired to 2ohm load

ran off DLS cad 11

8 gauge wiring kit to the JBL
4 gauge to the DLS

it all sounds ok, a bit lacking in midrange but i'll work on that one day maybe by changing the set up. but then its a never ending circle so then will need more bass too!

i do plan to run one big power lead to a distribution box at one point but for now i've got better things to spend the wedge on! and i've got another sub to put in when i get round to boxing it etc

Kenwood 4x45w Headunit
Standard front speakers
JVC 300w 6x9s in the rear.

Perfect for me, dont like subs, theres just too much bass and u sound like an idiot when going down a busy street and your whole car is shacking with the bass.

Plus subs just weigh the car down too much IMO.
