So i got the Audiocontrol LCQ-1, 3 channel amp, components and sub in, and it sounds like @$$. I've run in to technical difficulties. The Audiocontrol didn't intigrate into the stock system like I thought it would. Apparently the front door 6X9's and Dash 2.5's do not sum to make a full range signal. The plan was to run each signal from those into the Audiocontrol, combine them to full range, and run that back out to the amp and components. Well evidently the 6x9's stock are crossed over low, like playing below 500hz, and the dash 2.5's are crossed over high, like playing above 1500hz. Theres a gap in the middle.
So the only useable full range signal was from the rear channels. Which means no fading ability since I'm using it for front speakers. On top of that, the overall resulting SQ is really not that good. I'd hoped that with the recent popularity of products like the JL Cleansweap, JBL MS8, and my Audiocontrol, that system integration with factory decks would be better. Theres also an annoying pop when the system shuts off that is coming from the Audiocontrol too. It uses speaker signal sensing turn on. Only thing that might fix it is ground it to something else.
So probably, I'm going to ditch the audiocontrol EQ, and add an aftermarket deck and second amp. It was a $300 Effort to try the EQ, but I'm simply not happy with it. With a Deck I'll have to buy a CANbus and Satellite tuner along with it, but at least Sirius said my subscription is transferrable to a new radio. Even if it is XM only or SiriusXM. I'm looking at a JVC deck that would stick with Sirius only though.
So here is one picture at least of the component install. Tweeter near the side mirror. Looks good at least. I'll post pics of the sub box, amp and deck when the dust settles.
