  1. My original plan is that Im looking to get rid of my two 10' alpines and my one 10' JL because it makes no sense....i want to put a new system in but can not conclude on what would be the best option for my car. As of now the bass level and quality that is being produced from the three 10's is alright but could be better. Also when the volume is turned up it seems clarity from the door speakers just drops and does not sound clean. My goal: 1) clean up my bass levels and make some space because the 3 subs make there no room in my trunk and i also am not a fan two different brands of subs at once. doesn't sound right. 2) clarify and clean up overall sound quality that i believe is mainly coming from door speakers, want to have cleaner lows and brighter mids-highs. My car: 2008 Infiniti G35x 4 Door Sedan with factory head unit. So here are my options that some guys and i have thought of so far.... 1) get rid of or keep the 10' JL, keep the two Alpines and look into the rockford 3sixty.3 2) get rid of or keep the 10' JL, Keep the two Alpines and look to buy aftermarket 6.5 door speakers. (was looking at these just as a possibility... http://www.wooferset...components.aspx ) 3) Get rid of all three subs and get rid of the 2 amps and either: a- Get two DC lvl3 12's with DC 2.0K b- Get two DC lvl3 12's with DC 3.5K -What are your guys thoughts to this? i am honestly open to any options and ideas that you think would work best in my car. these were just some options some guys and i were thinking about for only an hour so let me know what you think. thanks -if theres anything else that you think i should add/drop let me know
  2. Alright, stick with me here as Ive been out of the car audio world for quite a few years and my oldest is just getting into it. his current set up is as follows. Kenwood HU, kicker 6.5 components in 4 doors, kicker tweets in dash (all run off factory infinity amp..jeep grand cherokee). as for bass, this is where it gets silly almost. sub amp is a hifonics zeus zrx2400.1D, it has been run to 4, 12" mtx terminator subs (weak I know) but it would flat hammer (popped the windshield seal). however I have come to the conclusion no matter what, its going to fry these subs. he currently has 3 that are stuck and simply wont budge anymore so I'm going to see if MTX will warranty them, then unload em, and upgrade. amp is wired with 0g, big 3, and double batteries. I have been searching for a couple days now looking for a pair of 15's instead of the 4 12's...simply to save money..and who doesnt like 15's with a lot of power? with all that said, does anyone have any experience running 2 level 3 dc 15's on approx 2400 watts at 1 ohm? will that eat these speakers alive as well? also, what kind of volume could a person expect from a set up like that...ported in a grand cherokee? these 2 subs will max out his budget, so other alternatives in a higher price range just aint in the cards.
