Nice setup there, Olie! :)

Here's mine... The left amp is an MTX Blue Thunder Pro (50 watts per channel, 2 channels) and the right amp is a Clarion (100 watts per channel, 2 channels). The sub is a self powered Bazooka, 120 watts with an 8" driver. I have 6" Clarion speakers in the doors, and 6x9 Polk (DX9) in the back. The Clarion amp runs the Clarion door speakers, and the MTX drives the Polks. I like the setup a lot, but I am thinking about trading the Bazooka out for an Infinity Bass-Link, which is a self contained, self powered, 200 watt 10" sub. The Bazooka is good for super low bass, but falls apart a bit when approaching mid bass frequencies. Oh, and the car is a 93 Dodge Stealth ES (one step below the turbo, but 222hp still, it's quick). :)

mmm nice h/u :D

I was thinking duel face... then i saw the price.

03-26-2003, 01:36 AM
I really lucked out with that one. I ordered it when they first came out. I was on the phone ordering the DEH-7400MP and they guy said that they were out of stock, but the 8400 just came in that day and it was only $60 more, so I got that instead. I paid $350 plus shipping total for it. Cha-CHING! :) I had a Clarion before this one and loved it, but they didn't have an MP3 player that was in my price range, and I wanted the El Organic type display, so, it all just kinda worked out. :thumb: Cheers!

Let me get this straight, some gal gave you an Alpine sub-eq as playment for "services rendered"?? :o

the next day she was diggin in her trunk for a sweatshirt, and i saw it sittin there, and i was like "you dont use this!?!"

she said no, and that i could have it... :confused:

i wasnt about to say no...hehehehe :thumb:

EDIT:: you gotta love a woman who has an Alpine sub-eq just laying around in her trunk for no good particular reason, also. HEH!! :D

Sweeeet. What kinda car u got?

04-06-2003, 07:00 AM
92 chevy beretta....nicknamed "the beast"...this thing is a friggin tank...ive been through everything with this car, and it hasnt died....its kinda beat up right now, since i got hit 4 months ago, and havent had time to replace the fender, but its all good....

the install isnt that great cuz i use the car 7 days a week, so i dont have time to do a full install...like you can see the wries from the sony amp, ideally i would want to get some 3/4" 1" MDF and put a sheet over the floor, and cut grooves for the wires to go in, so they dont bump up the carpet....

these cars too if ya dont know have a double bow back window...which means aside from it curving side to side, it does do up and down, the bottom of thw window has a steep curve to it...and trying to work in there is a PITA...especially when i top mounted my 6x9s in the pic...they are stock mounted under the deck, but i cut a hole through the back deck...and they sound much cleaner!!!
