140 on music is good. I'm like 45 on music (thats a guess, i've heard a lot of systems on the TL at 45)
For frontstage i'm going active (either alpine or eclipse...probably alpine) and i'm doing 5 1/4 comps (polk momo's or something) in the kicks, I have polk db's in the front doors, i'll be doing 5x7's in rear doors (probably polks) and another set of tweets up by the pillars (right by my driver/pass mirror)
It will be run by 2 amps (i'm leaning towards orion 600's)
That will make my ears hurt...well, actually i'm just trying to keep up with the subs
If I were you I wouldn't fab anything up, just use what you have, IMO you can get awesome sound without hacking doors and such. I would just stick w/ 5 1/4 or 6.5's...just my opinion
Yeah. I spoke with one of the guys about what I was trying to do and he understood and was going to get me some info together on some packages that he has seen work good in rangers and s10s.
Just do 2 12" type r's if your on a budget...or even two 12" kicker l7's (the new ones are SICK)
Trust me, you will get what you are after...properly amp them (more than enough power) and you will make your ears cry. Talk to blurple or me about it. We definetly have some low dollar high output systems (in comparison to others)
Type r's run you 120 a sub, kickers about 170-200 depending where you get em.
Kickers are louder at higher frequency's, but down low they can't extend as far and create that LOW bass that I've come to fall in love with. I ran a kicker 15" l7...it was loud, but not low. Soul survivor was the lowest it could go, and it was louder at songs like "air forces" (young jeezy) and the box was tuned to 32 (first box for it) and 38 (second box for it)
Like I said, my box fits pretty much perfect and if you need so, I can hook you up with the builder of my box. It will cost you 299 shipped to your door. It takes quite a while to build, but IMO it's totally worth it. Or you could build your own, I can get someone to give you plans w/ my dims or i'm sure blurple is willing to help out.
Trust us, use typical subs, output is IMO 70% your install and 29% product...I dunno where the other 1 percent comes in.
I reccomend type r's or kicker l7's, I have a lot of experience with both, you wouldn't be disapointed. And if you can bear sitting in the car after your done, either you are freakin crazy, or deaf. It hurts...bad!!! And anyone that needs a DD louder than that is crazy (I guess I'm crazy)
