  1. I'm sorry, the party you are trying to reach no longer accepts calls from..................
  2. Test, Test Echo, Echo Anybody There?
  3. Think it's time for me to put this little system together. First, I need to finish cleaning my garage.

      you need to quit posting here and get your ass to work


  4. One piece at a time when I can. If I can't I don't. I've spent enough money in this when I was single. Marriage and Kids come before my personal audio. However, I am still all about car audio so it is not like I don't get my fix from being in the community.
  5. Bill should not touch this car again. Because he would rip it all apart......
  6. I think the K.I.S.S. (Keep It Simple Stupid) theory should apply to about 75% of car audio consumer's out there....... Now to stay on topic, Mosconi 6 to 8 has been an awesome piece that I know quiet of few people who are "SQ" competitors and just random consumers have used. From what I understand and hear the software is user friendly. I have not heard anything about the new Mosconi piece coming out. IMHO a DSP is more than just an "SQ" piece, especially with today's newer vehicles with integrated OEM HU's. A processor is a good piece to expand your OEM system. Honestly, most DSP's can be way more than most people can use.
  7. Figure out a day rate. Hourly will bleed you slowly. Out of my home I am at $500 a day. Most boxes are 1/2 day builds but, material, travel time and so on. Just my .02
  8. This is not a straight forward question. What are the factory components? Navigation, Bluetooth......
  9. I semi agree with the purchase of a H.O. alternator for SQ. Really not needed. Big three and a good battery will be a better investment for an "SQ" system. Also, a power supply for tuning but, that's later. If you do not plan to run your vehicle off for long periods of time or pushing some crazy 10K amplifier then you should be good. I know my thought process of building a system varies from car to car. Is the new car a virgin? With a clean slate I would suggest figuring out your source unit. This alone can take you some time researching and reading the internet on reviews and talking to people. Single Din, Double Din, OEM or Tablet. There are a bunch of ways to go now a days. In the end it comes down to personal preference and features. Personally I am an Alpine fan. Speakers and Amplification go hand in hand. Unfortunately, not all shops have a sound room and even if they do it is not always the best way to judge a speaker. What sounds good on a wall does not always sound good in a car. The best way to listen to a speaker (IMHO) is in the vehicle. I would suggest to find some SQ shows and get some ears on. This may be a difficult task and will take you some time so be patient. It is worth the wait. However, the biggest improvement you can do is add a subwoofer. This would be 2nd or 3rd thing I would do while you get you gather your thoughts and equipment. Just a 100-500 watt amp, sub and pre fab box. Not sure if this was any help, good luck.
  10. If you have two 4ohm speakers in series (the way you have drawn) they would 8ohm. You would then have even less than 150 bridged maybe 75.
  11. Brandon was good seeing you bro. It sure has been a minute brotha. Next time I hope we can hang for a minute.
