Re: Polk Audio Gear for the BA's
I haven't changed the gear in my typhoon yet. still researching it all again. i have only seen the BF typhoon in mags and on the net. i have enquired to upgrade to it last week but the sales guy offered me $27-$28,000 less than RRP of a new one as a trade in for my existing 3 month old BA typhoon. I didn't pay RRP of course but i certainly didn't get a discount anywhere near what he offered me. the car is 3 months old. he obviously doesn't want any more business from me. Only bought 2 cars (typhoon and ltd) and sent 3 other people their way to purchase cars in the last 3 months. wasn't impressed. anyway, enough ranting.
I put 6.5 inch JBL split in the front, MBQuartz 6x9's in the back, 12 inch JL sub, equalizer, 2 Kicker amps, a 1.2F Cap and stinger speaker line to rca convertors in the BA XR6. The 6x9's are a bitch to put in. i had to put huge spacers in to fit them. really wasn't worth it. All the Speaker holes are 5x7 so 6x9's just don't fit. sux really.I wasn't happy with how it all came out. i stuffed up with my speaker selection. i should have put the same brand speaker in the front and rear. bad decision.
I currently use the stealth tuner in my typhoon. It is exactly the same as the capa except more expensive because it comes from herrods. The reason i went down that path was to keep my warranty. the dealer i went to is a herrods dealer and therefore will warranty any faults even if the tuner caused it.
In my typhoon im looking at putting the polk mmc6500 6.5 inch splits in the front, polk mmc650 6.5 inch coaxials in the rear, 2 polk amps (400.4 for speakers and 500.1 for the sub), 1.2F Cap, and an audiocontrol convertor for the speaker line out to rca. i haven't decided on the sub as yet.
