Whelp, I had to get your attention somehow. but this is the plan for my nissan. I was gonna put in a single 10, just a type r, dvc, nothing much. but then i went to A & B sound, and there were clarion 15's for $135. so i though, hehe, tiny hatchback lil car, t-tops... a 15" sub, that would be kool.

so i went to the back of my car with a measuring tape. i have 11" inches top to bottom.. not at all enough for any sub cept an 8".. so then i thought, whelp, it's a small car, no one can sit in my backseat, why not just take it out? so i was gonna put in one 15" sub in my back seat... and then i started thinking more... why not go nuts.... i'll put in 2 15" in my tiny little car! So here's the plan folks:

2 - Clarion SRW3841 15" subs. - 4 ohm, 600 W max, 300 W rms Single voice coil.

1 - Diamond Audio D5 600.4 amp (i picked it because a) I believe Diamond is the best there is out there that I have seen in a very long time) and b)it is designed to go down to 300w rms, at 4 ohms, X 2 exactly what i need)

2 sets of Diamond Audio M6 motorsport 6.5" mids + 1.5" silk tweeters.

and maybe another of the same amp to push them too... as the amp can do 75W rms X 4, but i might wanna find something cheaper, but still diamond.

Audio Control Epicenter - if you don't know, look it up, i love these things.

i'm not sure on the head unit though... prolly the bottom of the line pioneer w/ mp3 and sub fade... but opinions are encouraged for the head unit.

and i know the subs aint the greatest, but any kinda bass in that car at all is gonna be nuts. the space of my interior after the install is comparable to the trunk space of a Ford CrownVic...

so yeah, you cannot sway me against the Diamond stuff, i love their products. but the rest of it, let me know what you think.

(btw the middle of the line diamond 12" dvc sub goes for $650 canadian)

i do like alpine, and i think it's jsut a tad too pricey, but i don't trust fusion, unless it's like jonah lauh (not too sure on that) series...

My Alpine HU was $299 reduced in price from $499 so it wasn't that pricey and has more features than some decks that cost 2x as much. Of course there is no internal amp which might be a problem for some, but not for me :wink:
