whoa.. fosgate bottom line? is that why fosgate's audio engineers get paid more than JL's? you outta check your sh*t. fosgates' bd series amps got more bang per square inch of any amp out there and they produce damn clean sound. jl is pretty damn solid, but fosgate is pretty damn close to the top. i've got a JL and fosgate amp, so i ain't biased against JL. they still sick man, just look up your sh*t

one mo thing
adire audio's brahma xtreme subs set world records in SPL and even are in SQ comps, and cracked a door on a fu*kin van. brahma's are mos def one of the sickest subs, i know people who've switch from w7's to brahmas. the sh*t is straight underground and DIRRTY.. you pay $390 for 1600 watts RMS and 4800 watts max, a triple stack magnet of fu*kin madness. one of the biggest excursions on the market.. check that ish out

Car Audio isn't all about the SPL. Everybody's talkin about how they wanna do these big MTX and RE things. What's the purpose when you can't hear the voices and the music itself. I stick with the brand that makes just about anything you would want in the highest quality possible, Alpine. If you wanna diss on them, you better have a rock solid argument, or you're gonna lose. I truly respect JL, I like to stick with one brand throughout and JL doesn't have the headunits. Alpine and JL focus on SQ over SPL, maintaining the highest quality sound with good SPL #'s.

the engineers salaries have nothing to do with the quality of their products, rockford overall is a bigger company than jl, more people will buy rockford cuz it's more affordable. therefore rockford makes more $, therefore they can pay their engineers better. Just because rockford engineers get paid more doesn't meean sh*t about the product. i will admit that their subs have got better this yr, but their amps have kind of gone downhill from what they were.

well i hope nobody buys subs and hopes to hear voices form them, thats what good interior speakers are for. you should never have your subs producing the high notes.
and not to diss alpine but their amps and decks are better than their speakers, the new subs are nice, i liek them better than last yrs models but i still would take diamond audio over alpine for interior speakers anyday of the week. if i can get diamond audio someone would have to pay me a hell of a lot of $ to put alpine interiors in my ride

I'm not that dumb, I'd say I have a fair knowledge about car audio. Overpowering bass will take out whatever interior speakers you have. All your ears will focus on will be the constant thumping of your ears and not the true sounds of the music.

I'd take Alpine F#1 over diamond anyday :) (I know they're pretty spendy, but hey, gotta love em) I'm not dissing diamond, they put out a quality product. I love sticking with one brand for my sound, it's kind of a pet peeve if you wish to call it that. I am fully satisfied with my SPX-177R components as well as all the other Alpine products in my ride.

where did focal come from?

Those hex series look pretty sweet. I personally don't have much experience with them, but a guy I talk to on another forum is an engineer for them.

i believe focal isa forgein company, i'm not possitve but i though i heard they're swiss, so don't qoute me. they are awsome speakers but there is no way i would pay $1500 per set. diamond audio is awsome, they're the only company i want to deal with for interior speakers, i've got 2 pairs of motorsport m265i's coaxials. i still need to install 1 pair in my rear doors. but they sound great

What I meant when I asked where did Focal come from, I was asking why you mentioned it.

i mentioned them becuase focal is probably in the top 5 for interior speakers, but way to expensive, and i compared diamond audio to them. etc etc etc, thats just how nice diamond audio is

I feel ya..........Gotta beat down the block.........I didnt buy my subs for how smooth the bass is and how the transitions hit, and all the good stuff....

I bought to hit hard and be loud...fu*k the quality i just slap an amp on some after market doors and thats my highs,but im in for the spl so my setup is a compitition/street deal....but every body preferences are different


B.t.w
I can finally enter in a show....One on saturday...Aiming for a low of 146.7 but i really want a 148 or better...a 150 would be love but we will just have to see :D

What are you runnin that's gonna hit at 146? It takes quite a bit to get to 150 from 146, another sub maybe, a lot more power?

For a while I was about the bass, but then I realized, what's the point hearing only bass when I love my music so much. To me, anybody that runs their stereo to shake the neighborhood is only about spl, and doesn't truly care about their music. Might as well put in a bass cd for that.

I run my amp at about half level, with my boost on the deck at 0 and sub level on the deck at 2/3 and I still have plenty of bass to be heard a block away. I'm runnin a sealed box so my bass is tight and makes good transitions, it's not mushy and runnin together. I'm sure ghost can agree that music should be heard, not bass only, but it's everyone's personal choice I guess, just kinda annoys me when someone is just blasting at stop lights with no regard to anyone else on the road.

agree, if you can't heard the music clearly then it's a waste, just pop on a bass cd and listen to that all day. if you have a daily driver it should be for either sq, or both sq and spl, never just spl. thats a pathetic system then. i know people have their preferences but seriously it's fu*king pathetic to not have at least a descent amount of sq in a daily driver.

Thats crazy how can u have a car with just SQ. Most new cd players let u adjust your speakers. At least I know the pioneers do. But, yea my ride got excellent sound with speakers turned all the way down. (Dont forget to buy tweeters) but when I wanna turn them up I wanna beat the block down. Cant listen to either one all day long. And I have NO regard for people at stop light, maybe neighborhoods though.
