Re: Finally put my CD Player in my EB
Hehe, oh well, it's all started now :)
Once you get that first feeling of "oooo it looks like it's meant to be there, and how good does it make the stereo sound!!" you just can't stop after that :)
Bout' a year and a half ago, i decided to get a new headunit, put it in, looked fantastic. Then, i went to a couple of meets, saw some unbelievable power from cars like Bass_Crazy's EA, and Rmyers boot!! I caught the bug, and from then on, i haven't stopped :)
For me, every part of the stock stereo system had to go. All my wiring is aftermarket. The only stock stereo wiring i'm using is the ground, power and accesories wires behind the h/u, which seem to have held up ok..
For now i've settled with a JVC MP3/CDR/CDRW Headunit with dual pre-outs and subby control, an Audiobahn 2 channel 50wrmsx2 front stage amp to run my Focal Polyglass 2 way front speakers. My bass is supplied by a Clarion 500w dual voice coil 12" subby, powered by a 200wrms JL Audio monoblock. All wiring is stinger, running a 4 gauge power wire to a 3 port fused distribution block, which branches into 2 8 gauge power cables to each amp.
My rear speakers are currently being powered off the headunit, but they're distorting at high volume, and can't keep up with my 2 way focals. So, i'm thinking about getting 2 new 12" DVC subs, and an amp that will give each sub 300wrms @ 2ohm resistance, and also give my back speakers 30wrms each at 4 ohm stereo. (bout a $1500-$2000 upgrade right there..)
As you can see, if you have enough cash, and u like the feeling of "ooo i love how that sounds!!" and you're completely insane(tm) for car audio, give it a year or so, and you'll have a VERY nice system!
Hope it all goes well.. sorry about my post, not meant to sound boastful, just wanted to display the characteristics of this car audio bug!!!
