This thread is meant to help you build a system. we will most likely be frequently updating this with more useful info.

One thing before i start this, if you need help picking out brands or anyother help then 1st thing we need to know is your budget, we can't do anythign for you without a budget. 2nd we need to know what kind of sound your looking for, a nice clear system or a nasty SPL based system. without those 2 bits of info we can't and wont do sh*t for you.

If people keep creating threads without this info right away, the thread will just be deleted.
We are getting sick of new threads everyday that ask "whats the best amp ever" "whats the best sub ever" "help me build a system" and when we ask their budget they say they don't know. ALL these threads are fu*king bullsh*t, and are very pointless



Ok lets get down to business. This is the order you should build a system, it'll give you better sound if you focus in some areas 1st

1. Buy a nice headunit, the source is a key element in a system. If you have a sh*t source going to great speakers your still going to get a sh*t sound

2. Buy a nice pair of components for the front. The reason to focus more on these speakers is becuase majority of all sound you hear is from infront of you. If you put nice components in up front you'll benefit more than if you put nice speakers in the rear.

3. Buy some rear fill. I recommend 5 1/4-6.5 coaxials. Like i said above most of the sound you hear is from in front of you, so when it come to the rear speakers you just need a lil filler for the people int he rear and if you have a a surround sound system. Rear fill is not always needed. Most SQ setups will not have rear speakers at all, and they might have up to 3 set of components up in the front.i Only recommend rear fill if you have the intention of building a surround sound system, or if you need a little more sound. Most of the time if you buy 1 great set of components and put them up front you will have no need for rear speakers

4. Buy an amp for the interior speakers, if you can match each sets specs up then find yourself a 4ch amp that'll push both set's well. if you can't focus more on the front, buy yourself a nice 2ch amp that'll power the front components well. if you want to amp the rears than you can get another 2ch if you can't find a 4ch to push both sets

5. Here's where the sub/s amp/s and box comes into play. This is pretty critical, everything has to match up nicely inorder to get the best sound. Everything will depend on the sound your looking for.
The only boxes i would recommend is either sealed, built to specs or ported, built to specs. Stay away from prefab boxes. they're not always meant to work with every sub out there

now i can't really suggest any type of equipment in here i'm just trying to give people an idea of what they will need to build a nice-excellent system. When your looking into what brands to check out check out the "worst and best brands" thread up top.


When and if you need more suggestions on building a system, feel free to create a thread, BUT make sure you clearly state your budget and what type of things your looking for. do we need to find you a sub, or the whole 9 yards? we need to know that info

only if your running active, which means you'll run the mid bass woofers and tweets on seperate channels. it's a lot of work

for a passive setup, which is the easiest, just hook the + & - from the amp to the xover's input and then hook up the mids and tweets


basicly if you don't hook up the x-over you need a 4ch amp and a lot of time to tune and adjust all the settings. very demanding.

a good set of components will give you a much cleaner sound than a set of coaxials.

Expert Opinion needed

I just ordered the soundstream PCA 1500d 3000w amp. Im putting it on 3 cvr 4ohm dvc 12". Im wiring the speakers in parrel to get 2ohms of impedence. The speakers rms is 400w and the amp at 2ohms is rated at 1100w rms. Is this a good setup?

Now i'm a complete noob with car stereos but I just got a question - I've got a Vectra SRI XP (dont know if they have these in the US). It has a really big boot and fairly decent speakers as standard.

I'm after getting a sub woofer for it though as I don't get the bass sound i'd like from the current speakers.

I mainly listen to hip hop - so a sub built to handle deeper bass is probably what i'm looking for (like i said - complete noob!)

Anyway, i'm not after an amp or anything as like I mentioned i'm pretty pleased with the current sound, all i'd like is a decent sub.

Can this be easily done or would you need an amp before you install a sub? And if not - on average how much would i be looking at spending on a mid range sub? I don't really have a budget, but i'm after something more mid range than anything. And any suggestions on subs I should be looking at for what I need?


Sorry to sound like a retard when writing this but I really don't know much about this s**t!

you need an amp to power the sub. and you can pick up some decent subs online for around $100, or you could look on craigslist or whatever classifieds you have where you are and you can find some decent deals. or just go to an electronics store and find something you like and get it cheaper on the internet.

Once you throw a sub in, you'll see how bland those stock speakers really are
