Spring Break Jam - we beat out the 2004 and 2005 world champion in the class (Alex Mendoza). Needless to say, we were REALLY happy with that.
2 weeks later, we drove to Daytona and took third in Street Pro and 6th in ISQC at Spring Break Nationals. Because we went through Judges training the day before the show, we didn't have time to retune. The car changed and the 3"s finally broke in on the 20 hour drive down there...ah well. To move up from 5th to 3rd and move up 2 classes in IASCA and it only being our 2nd show with IASCA, we were pretty damn happy with that too.
redgtivr6 congrats, and i didnt mean to sound demeaning before.
Agreed for the most part, for Jls class (mid range) I say it’s a good amp, but for the price one can buy better, even in modern consumer market, to ME the PG titanium is that amp, that amp is the panicle of perfection, for the price, there new stuff isn’t good for anything but a paperweight, but yeah, ill agree the JL is a good amp, but as for unique, a lot of amps do what it does, but better (PG titanium) I have done some nice jl installs. I did a g35 last year, using all JL it was a damn clean system, but could it be improved? Yes, the amps would have improved it, and they did to me anyways, the guy didn’t notice much of a difference, so we ended up putting the JL back in, (cosmetic reasons) and he only played mp3 cds, so I wasn’t going to argue lol.

This thread is a 'rolla costa'.
Focal, anyone; familiar with GM's Monsoon audio system? My 99 Buick Regal GS has it and sounds great, till the stock subs went bad. So I'm looking to upgrade. I'm sold on the the Kenwood Dnx 8120 head unit. I want to go with JL Audio's slash series amps 300/4 and 500/1. ZR525CSI speakers. and I have 2 'Pops' 12 subs.
I mentioned my monsoon because I am very happy with it. The fullness in music it presents, is awesome (Yanni comes alive in my ride). I want to recreate the same fullness monsoon offers - with a new aftermarket rig. On a budget of $1400 for amps and speakers. What would you suggest for that $ amount to make Monsoon a distant memory?
Also, a shop demo'd his truck for me. I liked that the subs where punching - hard - but, it didn't have the fullness I wanted. We have our own tastes in sound, but using the Monsoon as a frame of reference. This same shop also suggested going from JL to Alpine amps. I just need help matching up the components for my budget, leaving out the should coulda woulda song and being pleased.
- suggest away - thanks!
