  • what sound system are you using ?

    I've read a fair bit about what pc's and such ppl are using for their in car system.

    My question is what kind of sound systems are ppl hooking to them ?

    I was thinking of getting a basic setup with an 8inch sub and some 2 ways. what does everyone else have hooked up ?

    Pyramid 160W AM/FM/Tape driving 4" Lanzar speakers in front, 6" Lanzar speakers in rear. Two 5.5" Lanzar door speakers motivated by a Pioneer 130W amp, connected to the Aux out on the Pyramid deck. No subs, but those door speakers really make this system pound.
    Player: Pentium 166MMX, Amptron 598LMR MB w/onboard Sound, Video, LAN, 10.2 Gig Fujitsu Laptop HD, Arise 865 DC-DC Converter, Lexan Case, Custom Software w/Voice Interface, MS Access Based Playlists
    Car: 1986 Mazda RX-7 Turbo (highly modded), 1978 RX-7 Beater (Dead, parting out), 2001 Honda Insight

        160w Blaupunkt Sevilla RDM 168 which drives
        2x 6' Pioneer 65w in the front doors
        2x 1' Blaupunkt 35w tweeters just under the window...
        A signal splitter is used to provide the tweeters only with highs while the pioneers only do the 'lows' and mids..

        In the back...
        2x 6x9' No Name 150w
        These aren't the best speakers but the don't have to put out heavy bass.
        2x 15w sony tweeters

        In the trunk
        150w RTO (hamburg, germany) bridged amp.
        400w 12' US-Blaster sub in a 50 liter sealed box.

        The Headunit drives all speakers in my car except the sub...
        I don't put any low bass to these speakers because the sub takes car of that...
        Therefore the 6x9' don't have to provide the full base range.. only the top of it.. -> the high bass... and that's is why these aren't the best speakers.. they only have to put out high and mid, and a bit high bass

        Along with the sub all frequencies are covered.. (this is the secret to a good sound.. use speakers where the were designed for.. don't try to get deep bass out of 4' speakers... If you eliminate this deep bass to the speaker it will sound much better)

                    I'm actually _NOT_ about loud .. I do sound quality (as the MB Quarts would suggest) My entire system is designed around near-perfect compatability to reproduce sound at negligable distortion.

                    On another note, I just added a TiDEQ digital equalizer (with channel time delay capabilities) to the arsenal. I hit 40 out of 40 with tone reproduction.

                    Well, what the value is compared to what I paid is almost as staggering as the retail value. =) Put it this way, with all the peripherals in my car, I could be driving a BMW M3 or a Honda S2000 ;-)

                      Im not much a fan of the loud noise anymore either. But, when I was in high school, it was the thing to do. First you buy a new head unit, then an amp, subs... a year later you enter a competition...buy more subs and amps...then before you know it you are buying a new windshield, taking our all of your seats, putting in a separate battery for each amp, and putting on a second alternator ontop of the beast you've already beefed up several times. Ohh what a mess that can get into.

                      Be careful guys, those damn hearing aids arent very comfortable or attractive!
