  1. Or would I be best to look at something like a Sony XAV-AX8000?
  2. I am looking at putting a larger screen headunit into my 2002 Chevrolet Silverado (currently DEH-8800BHS) as I'd like to get things like navigation without putting my phone on the dash. I've been looking into Eonon and am wondering if those type of units have decent RCA outputs? I will be handling all of the DSP through an AudioControl D-4.800 so I am not too woried about the built in EQ, just concerned with the quality of signal the RCA's will provide to the amp/DSP. I'd be using just front/rear output as I plan to feed the sub amp with a filtered signal from the D-4.800 (I'd run the RCA for sub in the event I do decide to change it up). I'm looking at the the Eonon GA2187 atm as it's 1/4 the price of a Kenwood or Pioneer deck with similar features.
  3. They are what I ended up ordering. I will say, these tweeters feel beefy. Obviously that isn't a direct correlation to quality but we will see. Like you I've only seen good things about both brands so it should be fun running them in active.
  4. I've been directed towards SB Acoustics SB17 with a paper cone for the mids and SEAS Prestige 27TFFNC as a tweeter. Anyone have experience with them?
  5. They have component versions of the c2. Yes I can go active. It’s a 4 channel dsp amp. I plan on running the rear speakers off the head unit.
  6. I liked the higher notes on the C2 as I felt they were clearer and the low/mid on the image dynamics was a little warmer and sounded better to me.
  7. I really appreciate it. I know I like Image Dynamics ID65CS and JL C2-650 but I feel like there is better out there for the $200-$300 market.
  8. Thanks for the advice! I plan on deadening the doors and rear wall of the cab now. I'll be doing the dash/floor this coming winter when I rip the dash out for heater core/AC core, blend doors etc. I'd like to stay 6.5" if possible as it will make installation a breeze. I am not at all opposed to buying individuals but sadly I don't know what I do and don't like. I prefer SQ over overall levels (hence going 4x 6.5" subs for clarity).
  9. I'm finally getting around to putting my project truck back together. I'm running a Pioneer DEH-8800BHS in the dash, Audio Control D-4.800 and LC-1.1500 amps (front/rear/sub feeding D-4.800 and then the D-4.800 feeding the LC-1.1500 it's signal). Subs are 4x Savard Hi-Q 6.5" dual 4ohm that I'm planning on running at 2ohm. I'm running a single 1/0 OFC cable under the back seat then into 2x 4ga (super short runs) into the amps. I then am planning on running 12ga OFC speaker wire to all 4 doors (I'm doing it now to the rears even though I'm running them off the head unit in the event that I decide to put some better equipment back there). I have 2x 240a MechMan alternators on the truck now to also feed my onboard power inverter but haven't placed the inverter in the truck yet (don't know how I'm going to yet until the amps are mounted neatly). Where my question lies is two fold. 1) What component set would be recommended for the front stage on a $200-$300 budget? I've been looking at the B2 Rage 6.1 and the SHCA 65C2P Premium Neo 2 Way but am definitely open to options as I know far less than y'all. 2) Would I benefit from running them as active or passive? I'm planning on running the rear fill off the head unit (crew cab truck) so that I can turn them off when I don't have people in the back seat for long road trips.
  10. 10-4, I think I may go that route. Those mounts are large but would make any system sound much better. The only other option I’m looking at is a standard 2 way set and finding OEM pillars with tweeter mounts and running it that way for a more OEM look. I feel the 4x 6.5” woofers behind the rear seat will respond quickly enough to make up for any lack of bass from the front driver.
  11. I’ll look into them. I’ve heard good things about them as well. I wonder how well their rage 6.3 sounds? Found these awesome mounts that would make it easier and I’d imagine sound better. https://www.customspeakerpods.com/product-page/a-pillar-speaker-pods-for-3-5-and-tweeter-00-06-GMFST

  13. I am looking to upgrade my crew cab pickup and am going to concentrate on the front stage (rears will be powered off the deck and only turned on if needed for people in the back seat). I will be running them likely in active. This is in a 2002 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD. Head Unit: Pioneer DEH-X8800BHS Front stage amp: Audio Control D-4.800 Subs: 4x Savard Hi-Q 6.5" D4 Sub Amp: Audio Control LC-1.1500 Wiring will all be OFC with 2x 240a alternators with the big 3 upgrade done I will be adding sound deadening to the doors, roof, back wall, floor, firewall, and inside the dash while it's apart.
