Hi, new member on this forum. I was a long-time member sounddomain during previous builds in '07-08 (where did that go anyway
). I've been on diyma for 6mo or so now.
Have been gutting and working on my 2012 Impreza for the last 6-7mo (as i do with every new car), and have got myself a pretty decent system going at this point.
Pioneer deh-880prs (oldie but a goodie)
2 Jl 12w6v2 sealed
1 Hifonics bxi2006d, now running at 1ohm. This thing roasted on me about a year ago, and I completely rebuilt it. All new audio and PS fets, driver fets, opamps. Next time, it'll be a big boy amp on the bass..
**New gear for me in this car:
1 Arc xdi1200.6, love that one.
Midbass from polk mm6501, did not enjoy the tweets..
TangBand W3-1364SA midrange in pods. NS2's prior to that.
SB SB26STCN-C000-4 in pods.
Running apple loss-less from an expanded ipod classic.
Atm, looking into dsp. My gut somewhat is telling me that the second i acquire one, I might just burn out on car audio though... lol. Been going at it hard since September.
Been doing measurements with the small dayton mic and rew, and have had success. But the next step is clearly dsp.
Somewhat having buyers regret on the TB mid's (latest addition, ns2's before that). They sound wonderful. But I only have them x'd over at 675 @12 on the arc. Much lower, and it seems like it could be toaster time at high volumes.
