IS THIS A GOOD HEADUNIT
I need sometihng that looks fun, and has a good BASS boost because im not sure if the standard Speakers in the 1997 Acura Integra LS are good.
I prefer to stay the hell away from all Jensen products. Get a Pioneer, or a Kenwood. They make some really good quality stuff! :thumbs:
Alpine is good to but pricey
go with Pioneer....
but if you dont wanna drop that kinda money, get a JVC - they have some pretty good looks to them(as it seems to be what you want)
as for the Bass....the deck isn't the biggest factor in that - speakers are a bigger factor, or a Sub :)
Not it isnt. And dont be cranking the bass up on your head unit with all
stock speakers. All you will be hearing is mud and static.
For a good price look into getting a Panasoinc CQ-C8301u. Ikesound.com has it for around $150-$160. Has 3 5v preouts and it sounds really good when paired with some good coax. You want bass, buy the proper sub for it.
heheh at least we agree on a lot of points t-bird....except you never answered my question :ohcrap:
What question is that, sorry I have a problem with not checking a lot of
threads I posted at...I've been busy too lately with some new goodies...
To be exact.... well x4.
Running 4 of those sealed wired to the 4ohms to my Orion 2500d in my Accord. Just decided to try something new, give my DD3515d's a break :mrgreen:
tight. they sound any good?

Havent built the box yet, but I hooked them up free-air to the amp. It's
definatley a change from 2 15s. I have more cone area though (32" compared
to 30") so I'll see what they can do as far as SPL, even though I bought
these for SQ (going in a 1.4 cu-ft sealed enclosure, .35 a piece).
Okay first off, you need that power at 2ohms. Because in a single sub dual 4ohm application you can only wire it to 2ohms or 8ohms. So this means a 2 channel bridged amp wont work (because cheap 2 channel amps arent stable bridged at 2ohms...but they are in stereo). You need to look at a mono D-Class amp for this... Check out these for him...

http://www.ikesound.com/product-product_id/2119 (Nicer than the Vibe..I highly recommend this amp as I've had great success with the Directed built line of amps...which includes Viper/Orion/Precision Power/ADS). My friend actually runs this sub in a single type-r (05 model) setup (the Viper version, same amp though). The new Type-R's kick major ass (built like a Type-X...get REALLY loud and sound excellent, he actually went from an older RF Power HX2 to this sub and it's 5x better.

is clarion any good at all?
for HU's? Not really.
I completely forgot about the dual coils....jesus. Yeah, I'll tell him to get the Brutus - he's getting a great deal on the sub, so he can take it and shove it lol!
Clarion makes a very good Head Unit. I'd buy Clarion over a lot of manufacturers...including Alpine, Kenwood and some of the lesser Pioneer models.
