If you're looking at JBL and infinity for subs and amps I'd say they're alright but not a good choice. I'll go for Zapco, Phoenix Gold or MAYBE Alpine V12s, other than those maybe they're powerful but I'm talking about clean sound (even for bass) not cheezy brands. If you do some research, you'll see JBL and Infinity never get to win IASCA or major competitions but the brands I refer to was well known and well made.
E46, I'm not dissing your system, they might be good but I'm talking about the pure bred sound quality here and I think a lot of people here wants to enjoy their car's sound. Especially he's only talking about a 600 bucks limit on a head unit. Can Clarion make anything with 3 4 volt preout with sub control and can produce 50 x 4 mosfet power? I can tell you that I've seen a Pioneer head that could bridge it's rear channels and power a single 10" (even though it's not recommended). I'll NEVER go to Future Shop for car audio, even MTX is consider "dirty power" these days, and probably you're buying those items from Future Shop. Try go to Auto Sound Design and check out their inventory, you'll know the REAL difference.

When choosing a system you also should consider what kind of music you like.

I have a friend that is a certified car audio installer. I could hook you guys up with him to do some "under the table" custom work. If you are interested let me know and I can talk to him. Just one thing. He lives in Brantford.



He is an IASCA judge. And he has taken the Alpine courses. I'll be honest with ya. He is the ONLY one that will ever touch my car for car audio. He is upfront and honest. No BSin'!
Hey guys/gals!,

Randy(empowerd), Kevin(straight_6), and I (Dave aka:'88 325e) started up Bimmercruize '01. Bimmercruize '02 is on Sunday August 11th! So if you need details about the show please contact us!

Well, if he's only getting the head installed then even I can do it, since mine and MTRD's head was installed my me and it's not that hard. But if you guys are thinking of doing a custom floor or fiber glass kicks then that will be something must be done by other people but if you're thinking of getting the nicest custom job then you have to go for the top guys. Since not everyone can get a trophy from IASCA, depends on budget and how nice you want it to be. Plus not every company can install the Alpine F1 status so that's why I suggested Auto Sound.
