First thing I tend to notice about a car once I've sat inside of it, is the stereo. First thing I realized I didn't like about my new GXP was the Monsoon system. I have to say out of just about any "premium" sound systems I've heard, this ranks very near the bottom. I told myself I was going to leave this car alone and just enjoy driving it, but I can't live with the stock stereo.
On the shelf in my closet I have waiting...
Alpine IVA-D310 Touchscreen DVD headunit
Alpine PXA-H701 DTS/x-over
Alpine KCA-420i iPod adapter (was using this in my old GTP, and its killing me not having it in the GXP
Xtant x1001 - subwoofer amp
Xtant x604 - front stage
Xtant x603 - rear fill and cabin subwoofer
Focal Poly-K 6.5" comps (mid in door)
Focal 4k3211 4" mids (kicks along with tweeters)
Focal 5WS 5" subwoofer (originally to be used in the console of the GTP, might use in the passenger footwell area near console/firewall)
Focal 690CA 6x9s
Focal KX 38 SPL 15" sub (sealed, approx 1.5 cubes)
And because I'm a nerd, here'* a quick PS flowchart
The only part of my plan thats flawed is the amping and x-overs used for the front stage. I will probably decide to run the fronts active, in which case I'll have to use my old Kenwood KEC-600 x-over and add amplify an extra pair of channels.
Let me know what you think
Now I just have to get off my *** and get to work.
