Default New build - Skar

I have been out of car audio for years due to family priorities but am finally getting a new system in my '16 Accord Sport.

I remember a few years ago hearing about Skar audio with fairly positive reviews, and their prices were good so I decided to give them a shot.

My setup will be:

Stock HU
LC7i
Front: SK65C
Rear: SK65
Amp: RP-75.4AB
Sub: SDR12
Amp: RP-800.1D

I think will be a decent budget build, but curious others thoughts?

I personally never owned any Skar equipment but I heard the guy who started Skar was a former employee of Sundown. And he has a bad reputation. But the equipment seems to have positive reviews. Your system should be a nice setup! I am curious about their subs. They seem to be a great value but have never heard them in person. Let us know how it sounds! Oh and highly recommend sound deadening your car unless you like rattles.

I have had a skar sk1500v2 for a year now pushing a sundown x10v2 at full tilt it doesn’t break a sweat barley gets warm. Wish I would have gotten the 2500 though, just to have the head room for the x10. My stock alternator thanks me for getting the 1500 though.

Default skar vd-10

I have a pair of skar vd-10 I abuse with a pair of jbl gtx 500
they take some abuse for sure

I had one for a year and the second for 6 months

I clipped the shit out of em for a while figured it out

they make some serious bass with the ported box enough to make port chuff a big enough issue to seal the box and they still bump hard
there is a ton of Sundown backers on here and I don't doubt they perform but these were 1/4 the cost and they do work well

You'll be happy with the setup. I have a zvx 15 and am pushing it with an mtx 81000d at full tilt, 1 ohm as a daily setup and the sub is quality. I know all their stuff is rated true or even conservatively. As long as you set your gains right you'll likely never see an issue with that setup

Default Nice

That setup sounds nice, I guarantee you'll like it.
The budget version is well maintained so usability will be good as well.
If you need any help or write some reviews you can check some like essaythinker review and such, I'm interested in it nowadays.
Good luck!

So I'm about a month in with this setup and overall I really do like it. The mids and highs are good, and I get some hard hitting low end from the sub. My biggest complaint is the car. The rear deck rattles like crazy, even with dynamat on the entire deck. I found that Honda did a shitty job securing the deck to the frame, so I'm working through that.

The only other issue is I installed my amps/LC7i in the spare wheel well, and I'm having thermal issues with the sub amp after ~45 minutes. I may move them into the cabin, under the seats to help with cooling but I don't really want to redo everything. I also need to add a battery and go the big 3.

I haven't found a way to add pics here, but once I do I'll add them.

Thanks for the input guys. I'm happy with the purchase, and glad I chose Skar.
