How decent is your car audio system? - Page 5

post #61 of 65

When I was a younger man I spent a great deal of money on car audio...

 

Now wiser, when the stock Bose stereo went out in my audi I replaced it with.... my portable rig: DiyMod iPod 5.5, RSA Tomahawk, Etymotic ER4s.

 

Best sound I have ever heard in an automobile!

What?! You drive around in your Audi while listening to IEM's?! That sounds dangerous.

Here's mine, in a 2007 Ford Fusion, standard 4 speaker system.

 

Kenwood KDC-X597

Dual JL Audio 10" W0V3-4

Box is built to spec for the W0V3's and is tuned to 32hz. Ported.

JL Slash 500/1v2

JL Audio C2-650 (components up front)

JL Audio C2-650x (coaxial in rear)

I used a Wirez 4-awg amp install kit and changed all the factory speaker wire to Wirez 12awg.

 

I'm looking into the JL Audio JX360/4 to amp my speakers, also looking into Dynamat.

Yes I do love JL.

For a stock system - mine sounds decent, I'd have to say.

I'm driving an MY11 Accord Euro (known as the Acura TSX in USA).

 

From the factory, mine has a Panasonic 6-CD Changer Head Unit with 10 speakers that consists of :

2 - Tweeters

2 - Front Speakers

2 - Rear Speakers

2 - Parcel Shelf Speakers

1 - Center Speaker

1 - 8" Subwoofer

(the speakers are made by Alpine from what I've heard - haven't confirmed it myself though)

 

This system has pretty nice trebles and bass, but the mids sounds a bit recessed.

But then again -- can't really complain, it's a stock system after all!

 

I also noticed that the system sounds better when being paired via AUX cable with my Astell&Kern AK100MkII compared to playing CDs directly from the built-in CD player.

Right now my audio system is surely entry level but it's still in the works, but i own a 2007 Ford Fusion and here's what i got so far:

 

In the trunk i have:

2 JL Audio 10" W0V3 4 ohm

A box built to W0V3 specs and tuned to 36hz (would go to 32 if i had better subwoofers)

 

Mounted to the back of the back seat i have:

1 JL Audio Slash 500/1v2

 

In the front and rear doors i have:

JL Audio C2-650 component speakers up front. (running off deck power)

JL Audio C2-650x coaxial speakers in the rear. (running off deck power)

 

Up front i have:

Kenwood KDC-X597, with the bluetooth mic ran up my door trim facing the driver.

 

Wiring:

I used a Wirez 4 AWG amp kit, i'm a personal fan of Wirez. It included 4 AWG power and ground wire, 120amp blade fuse block, remote wire, wire loom for the power wire and it came with speaker wire which i used for my crossovers.

 

Later on i plan to get a 4 channel amplifier for my speakers, probably the JL Audio JX360/4 and to get an XS Power battery. I dream of owning W7's one day. :) Tell me what you think!
