i have pioneer bullet splits in the front at the moment, but the rest is stock.
so far i've chosen the clarion DXZ835MP deck, which i'm getting for $700.
i'm gonna run the front splits and rear shelf 6" 2/3ways straight off the deck, but i'm undecided whether to run them off their own amp instead, coz my deck will have 6 preouts for that purpose(front pair, rear pair, sub pair), but that all depends on money.
for subs i'm gonna keep the factory amp and replace the factory 8" with a 10", mounted under the 8" hole.
i'm gonna have it proffessionally installed coz i dont trust myself, plus i'm lazy. should i get them to run RCA plugs and big cables to the factory amp in the boot for the sub(or subs, should i decide to add a box)?
what else should i do? what brands should i aim at for speakers?
its a 93 EBII ghia alpine premium sound with the 6 stacker(which, after all this i wont have no more)
For 6 inch speakers, it's hard to go past brands like Boston, Alpine, JL Audio, MB Quart, or if they break the budget, Kenwood and Pioneer make some pretty decent stuff. I am not sure what the factory amp that runs the sub is, do you know any details on it? You will get better sound with a box, but they do take up space so you will have to decide if you can afford to lose it. As for free air 10 inch subs, Kicker make a pretty decent one which I have seen going cheap at JB HI-FI down my way. If it was me I would get some details on the power output of the factory amp, they are generally piss weak, but hopefully for your sake I am wrong.
Black EB S-XR6 5 Speed Lukey Exhaust Lowered AU2 Tickford Wheels
Alpine CDA-7892E,Alpine MRD-M500, Alpine MRV-F303, Alpine Type 'S' 12" Subs x 2, Boston Acoustics RC620 and CX-6
I wouldnt go the Clarion... I used to have a Clarion in my EB and thought it sounded pretty good. Then later I changed to Alpine and the sound quality was awesome... far better than the Clarion. I have the Pioneer bass bullets up front as well.
well i want the best damn 10" free air sub i can get. i dont wanna box it coz i want the boot space.. besides, i may put a box in there later, but i still want some thing for when you box is out.
i've been recommended an alpine sws1041, and a lanzar neo10. both of these subs come with recommended box sizes in their specs, but i was told they can run free-air(alpine rep said that their sub can).
otherwise if i'm not sure i'm gonna get a pioneer TS-W254F free air sub. is there anything better than the pioneer that i KNOW is specifically for free air?
also what speakers fit in the back of an EB?? 6"ers or 6.5"ers?? i want it looking stock.
I would go for JL Audio, Kenwood or Pioneer. I run full Kenwood in my XA and they pump! Go a ported box in the boot. It sounds so much better but make sure the sub is facing towards the rear of the car and give it lots of power to run off.
