Im new to the forum. New to car audio, kind of. 20 years ago i thought i knew some things. I ran some Boston Pro 6.2 components descent 10 or 12 inch woofers. Phoenix Gold MS series amps. Its been gone for a long time now.
Now im looking to setup my Avalanche with something nice, but not spend thousands of my hard earned bux on it. I want SQ mostly. With enough bass to rattle the mirror, and let me feel it. Staging is high on my priority, but mostly want to be able to turn it up and hear the music/beats/vocals clearly.
I have acquired a few things so far. Finding deals here and there. Hopefully i will be able to use them, or I can flip some of what i have to get other gear as needed.
Items acquired thus far.
Pioneer DEH-80PRS. Bought strictly because of reviews. Had the features i want with inputs and Bluetooth. Has active crossovers, and such.
Alpine PDX 4.150
Alpine PDX 1.1000
Focal PolyGlass 165VRS - This set features a Shallow mid-bass driver. I didn't realize that until i bought them(cash and carry). I'm curious if its going to hurt my mid-bass. Not sold on these, but thought i got a descent deal on them when i bought them.
My thoughts, and please direct me as you think. I will take all suggestions into consideration.
Sundown sub SD-2 8" single sub running on the 1.1000. Of course it will be turned down. Crazy running this much to one 8" sub rated at 300watts? I am really tight on space with the Avalanche. .5-.6ft^3 with 5" mounting depth. Unless i want to replace the mid gate (don't want to do that). Convince me to go with 2 please. I'm looking for reason
Should i add a 3" or 4" driver with the Focals?
Which is best for staging. I have the factory Bose system now with the tweet in the a-pillar. Should i place the focal tweet there, or install in the door near the mid-bass driver? I can fit the 6.5", a 3" and tweeter in the door, just not sure its going to give me the staging i want. Q logic kicks maybe?
Any suggestions are appreciated.
