I've had this system for a few years, and I'm quite happy with it. I bought this Pioneer at best buy for a hundred bucks. The sales guy got me to buy it when he told me that it's hard to get a cd to skip (at the time I was still using cds). He was right, and it has decent sound. I also got myself a Sirius radio, mainly to be able to listen to Howard Stern again. And yes, that is a Zune. I despise apple products
The subs are Volfenhag 12" 1200 watt with dual voice coils, double stacked industrial magnet, and can run 2, 4, and 8 ohm. I picked them up on millionbuy.com for 50 bucks each. I've used them before, and they work just as well as the expensive stuff. I also bought the 2600 watt Volfenhag amp at the same time, for around 150. I threw on a 3 farad cap just to make sure I had no problems with lights flickering or anything (rule of thumb is 1 farad for every 1000 watts on the amp, rounded up). The bandpass box I bought from a friend a long time ago, and it's held up well over the years.
The amp and capacitor are mounted to square stock aluminum, which is then mounted to the box. I wanted full airflow under the amp, so this is what I came up with. I did the cap the same way just for looks. Plus It's a handy spot to run wires through.
I have the amp set so that the subs are giving me bass, but not so much that I'm going to go deaf. I wanted this to add depth to my music. Not that it won't go loud, I have some bass heavy songs that when I crank the volume, the mirrors move out of position
I found all the power connectors on ebay. The brand is xscorpion. I've never heard of them, but the parts are inexpensive and heavy duty.
I like to control the amp myself, so I converted the ashtray into a switch holder. I haven't smoked in 3 years thanks to my electronic cigarette, so it wasn't being used anyway. The tray is actually 2 pieces, the front panel comes off with some persuasion, and hides the screw heads after some clearance work to the back side of the front panel. The switch holder itself is a standard elcheapo holder, turned upside down and spaced with aluminum spacers that I machined real quick.
Now I have a question. I snagged a pair of infinity gold tweeters from a junkyard jeep, but I'm not sure how to hook them up. Do I have to use a crossover, or can I hook them up in parallel with the front door speakers?
