My 10w1v2's Installed!

Here are pictures of my system finally installed and a photoshop I just did of my truck and system. It currently stands as:

-Pioneer Premier DEH-P770MP CD/MP3 Player
-2 Powerbass Xtreme: Evolution Series (ES572Xv.2) 5x7" 2-Way Coaxial Speakers In Side Panels
-2 Powerbase Xtreme: Evolution Series (ES572X) 5x7" 2-Way Coaxial Speakers In Back Panel
-JL Audio 300/2 Amp
-2 JL Audio 10w1v2 Subwoofer Drivers

And sitting in my room is:
(1) Pioneer CD-IB100 Ipod Adapter/Controller for my cd player
(1) 60GB iPod Photo is in the mail on the way to my house!

This setup everyone around here tells me is ungodly loud inside of the vehicle, It isn't anything huge, but I love it. I plan on sound deadening the whole truck for rattles before the winter, if anyone can recommend some kind of sound deadener it will be very much appreciated and I am getting 2 set of JL Audio TR 5x7's for Xmas to replace the Powerbass.

Here are the pictures: (Let me know what you think of it all!)









Sorry for the huge post!!!

I kinda like it, but is there a way it could be done using one box and creating an amp rack? I have never been a fan of 2 seperate sub boxes. But that does look unique with the amp in the center

If both of the subwoofers are powered by the same amplifier and in a common-chambered box and one of them breaks, then the one sub that is still working will have double the volume, which is not really that bad, but the other subwoofer will act as a passive radiator. That will screw up the response of the working subwoofer. Although there is a chance the specs for that situation would be beneficial to the other subwoofer's response, those chances are slim to none.

But then again, it all comes down to what sounds good the owner...

I'm a fan of only one subwoofer, personally.

sometimes if you are already in a good size box and one sub blows, the other will gain double the air space and the mechanical power holding will drop highly, and the possibility of it blowing comes up fast so its good to have individual chambers

personally im a fan of 1 sub too, i would rather have one awsome sub than 2 mediocore ones


oh yea nice stereo:)

how much did it all run you? i want to hear some of those w1's
