Advice On Speakers/Car Audio Set Up
 

 
What up BX
I just bought a Lexus IS 250 and coming from a car with a system its just not cutting it.Its not terrible and its even loud but it needs some bass real bad.Im older now so I aint trying to be banging down the block.I need something $500 and under and clean.

I don't even want to replace the inside speakers really just want a sub.I know nothing about car audio set ups so maybe I need an amp too.My old car maybe had a 600 watt rockford fosgate 10inch sub and that was perfect.

I wish I had that Mark Levinson sound system.That was the clearest best sounding system that I have heard that came with a car

Just get a line out converter and tap into one of the rear speakers to get a signal. This way you don't need to replace the head unit. From there its simple...literally choose the subwoofer and amplifier you want. You want your amplifier to be able to produce more power than the speaker can handle and just wire it to a safe resistance.

Yea. I'd recommend this.




For the sub I posted, get the dual 2 ohm. And get you a ported box made.

Can I get a box at any installer

How much is installation usually and seems like close to $500 which is cool

Alot of power more than expected but will work.

BTW you are a great human,always been nice and helpful.Need more like you out there

Most shops should be able to build a box

Installation shouldn't be more than 200

Imo it's better to have more power than you think you'll need then you'll looking to spend more to upgrade

I had a 400 watt kicker sub a long time ago and blew it in a few weeks. Upgraded to a 1000 watt sub and amp and that ish lasted like 7 years.

Get a 10" bass tube with a built in amp. That will be all you need and can buy it and have it installed for 500 or less. Find one on the internet just make sure it has a built in amp
