    I honestly wouldn't rate it.

    PLEASE settle down and take some time to understand how to act on the internet and on forums.

    You posted 3 posts in other threads that had absolutely nothing to do with the threads. That's called thread crapping. It's not generally nice.

    Then, you came into the car audio forum and double posted.

    CALM DOWN! Just take a deep breath and take your time!

    Spend some time learning what this forum is about and spend some time learning how to use and how to act on a forum please!

    You should always consider a good enclosure when talking subs! If you want nice tight, punchy bass, then you sould go with a sealed enclosure. If you want a low roll off, a dB gain at a particular frequency, but a muddier sound, then go with a vented/ported enclosure. Do some research and try to match the subs up with a box that matches their volume requirements at least! In reality there are about 10 - 20 parameters to consider when building a box for a given speaker.

    Rate your system? We know nothing about it!
    And if you want to show off and get feedback how bout making a thread for your car in the "show off your ride" section...that might make sense....

    And, not to be mean, but given money and knowledge, anything can always be made better.

    word yo.

    lol, i drive a 2001 altima w/ 3 10" subs, and 1 12" sub. That means nothing. It has a running car PC w/ Infinity Kappa seperates up front, no rear fill, the subs are 10" Alpine Type R's in 1 cu. ft. enclosures and a Thunder 6000 in a 1.25cu ft enclosure, all sealed. The carPC is a hacked XBox running XMBC to an Alpine 4ch Amp and a Kicker 200.2(for the 1 12) + SX1250.1(for the 3 10s)

    ^^ That is a full breakdown...you have given us no information on your system except for 2 10" CVRs and a Kicker Amp...kicker makes about 25 different amps. I own quite a few of them. Now if you want to see a full breakdown, i'll give you another example, in my 240sx, i have Kicker 1" SS tweeters, and Kicker SS 5.25" Midranges glassed in the A pillar, Kicker SS 8" Midbass glassed in the doors. No rear seats and removed rear speakers, the amps are fiberglassed in place of the rear seats they consist of 2 Kicker SX 1250.1s, 1 Kicker KX650.4, and 1 Kicker KX200.2. The subs are 4 10" L7's in sealed enclosures running 1cuft and 1/2 filled w/ poly fill. Again, that is fiberglassed in the hatch opening of my 240. Now the subs are each dual 4 ohm, bringing a 1ohm load to each mono amp. As for the CarPC haven't yet decided what i wanted to do for that yet, but i know i'll be running either a lilliput or Xenarc front screen. In the Altima i went cheap and got a Innovateck screen which isn't all that bad actually, it's non touchscreen though.

    Now the only problem is i still haven't provided pictures of the install yet since it isn't quite complete, still need to be painted and touched up on some areas and the rest of the car needs to be deadened.... Now at THAT point someone can start tearing apart my system.... that is...when i post pictures up of it. Again the CarPC portion needs to be present saying as how this IS a CarPC forum.

    the guy hasn't been on this site for a few days now.

    He came on, posted randomly in a bunch of other threads asking people to help him figure out how to post his system so people could rate it.

    He had no interest in CarPCs, he had no interest in being of any kind of benefit to the community, and he had no interest in doing ANYTHING other than posting his system and having people rate it.

    I tried to explain him what this forum was for, but he got all huffy puffy about it.

    I told him if all he wanted to do was show off his system and get responses for it, hit up sounddomain or cardomain, those sites existed for that....and I haven't seen him since...lol
