head units...AWESOME

Subs... OKAY

amps...PRETTY GOOD

mids and highs....well, that depends on what ya spend. I went through two sets of alpine 6x9s ( type R ) before I installed a set of kenwood 6x9s...then I got wise and bought some JL XR comps...

my first setup was all alpine .... everything excep wiring. and everybody that got in my car was amazed. and i shut a few guys down. (2 12" type rs on the mrp 1000 and some type s coaxials on a mrp 650 i think it was. it got the job done. right now im still running the type s coaxials but now on a dc 120.4 my front left speaker blew ... but thats ok. once i wrap these door pods ill have 1 set of components of RFt165s in each door. All in all. I like alpine. but there can be better stuff had for a little more money.

Love the headunits too. Ive had 2 so far ... my gf likes em so much that i just ordered her the same one as i have.

x2. What are your ragging friends run?

One of them has three off-brand 10's and a Kenwood Excelon HU in a little sonoma

Another has two 12 infinity's not sure the model, or brand of amp

Neither of them are special and i love my system to death but i want more spl. My car is not damplified at all and still has the best SQ around. Idk i am actually probably goignt o get 2 15's maybe some DC Lvl5 or lvl4xl or Fi BTL or AA Z series idk yet but I love alpine myself

if you like it then forget what they say. if you want more spl try the little things

whats up with your current box

what wiring do you have

get that damplifier pro

My box at this second is just a bought at store sealed bow but by next friday im going to have my bandpass box made its tuned at 36 im doing it for a school project. It is going to be pretty nice and im going to post a build log once im done with it.

Wiring is just a scochse 8 ga kit from the front battery to the back my second battery isnt installed yet but after i get my bandpass in im going to do big 3 0 gauge and run 0 gauge to the back.

Might have to wait on the damplifier pro *pulls pockets out to show lack of moolah*
