Getting ready to change out this Sound System. here are my plans and ideas. please please please let me know what you think. and add your own combos like i did below. also add pictures if you have them

1. Keep Factory Radio (head unit) it looks Clean and the After maket one makes it look UGLY (i think it does, please don't yell at me if you have one)

2. Changing out the 2 Rear Speakers with 6x9" Polk db690 (Link)

3. Changing Out the 2 Front door speakers with 6-1/2" Polk Audio db 651s (Link)

Thats all i have so far here are some other thoughts-

I want a JL audio Clean Sweep (i hear its what you want for a factory radio)

I want a JL audio Amp (I hear JL Audio is the best)

I want 2 Custom Sub woofer JL audio on each side of the car

PS2 or an xbox ( i have a custom xbox that i don't use)

Nexxson half din Dash or Visor TV's :cool:

sounds good. have you considered NOT having rear speakers? you don't really need rear speakers if your fronts can handle the job (and thos polks can) and no rear speakers will incrase bass response from the rear.

oh, and sound deadening. with w 2 subs in the back, u definately want to deaden the rear.

have you considered the Rockford Fosgate 3sixty.1 or 3sixty.2 i was told they are really good units than the cleansweep. are you lookin to go sq? you could go with 1 12w6v2 with a jl 500/1 amp. or 2 w3v3 wit a 500/1 amp. JL is a good company, but there are companies out there that are better than them but dont really care bout advertising as much as JL does.

i looked at Rockford device, what is this about the Bluetooth feature? you need a Plam to configure it?

i'd go with one if you want to save some room in the trunk, as sub boxes (unless custom fiberglassed into a false floor or into the corner) can take up a lot of space. if you don't use your trunk that much, go for two. personally i like one sub because i use my trunk a lot to haul stuff, but i would go for two if i had the space.

to keep costs down, you might want to consider prefabricated box/sub sets, as some of those are pretty reliable, loud, and (sometimes) looks cool. if you want to do it yourself, one thing to keep in mind is a sealed or ported enclosure. you can look up this stuff online, but generally, sealed is more SQ (tighter bass) and ported is louder. so it really depends on what you're going for. but if you run two 600W 12" subs, sealed or ported, it'll be damned loud =)

hahaha roy and i are saying the same things in two different threads. ^_^" yes, you do need a palm with bluetooth to set it up. if you don't have one, you can take it to an authorized 3sixty dealer and they will set it up for you. sounds great, but it is costlier than other options. if you're not crazy into SQ, then you can get away with a Navone LOC, or cleansweep is pretty good. really depends on your budget.

You need the Palm to set the EQ and x-over frequencies/ slope.. It may seem like a little much but it's so worth it to be able to adjust those things comfortably from the drivers seat not cramed down in a trunk where you cant hear anything or under a seat..

i kno there's a lot of debate about this, but i would really recommend NOT having rear speakers. your car's sounds are stereo (unless you're ballah and have 5.1, in that case you need that rear setup), and the majority of the music should be coming from the FRONT anyway. also, i've notice very noticible increases in bass by removing my rear speakers. try to get everything but the rear speakers (remove the stockies so the gaping whole will move more air) and see how it sounds. if it sounds fine, i'd leave 'em off. just my opinion on the matter.

I've got 6x9's in the rear that push 70rms, and I've got them set on LPF @ 80hz. Since I didn't want a big sub taking up room in the trunk, the rears acted as two mini subs. They suit my tastes just fine. They bump pretty well when the car is still.

point taken, but still can't beat a real sub.... a 10" usually takes up less than 1.0 ft^3 of space (i know some 12" that takes up that space) and it'll sound much better. :D

i agree...no rear speakers. itll save you some green, and you wont know theyre gone :)

there are other products out there other than jl. im considering getting rid of my 12w3v2d4 in favor of an IDQ 12 or phoenix gold rsd12d. dont look at brands...set goals first, then find the gear that fits your needs :up:

:and1: totally agree. if you're on a budget, check out elemental designs audio, if you order a complete set from them they have 15% off as their "package deal" for the price their stuff ain't bad at all.
