Anyone can respond. Please remember if you do, I know there are better sounding and more costly options, but I need all the trunk real estate I have and can't have a stupidly loud system because I use this car for traveling for my job with VP'* and customers. And since this car is going to be visiting the strip often, I dont want a rolling DJ booth. Just want to firm up my lows.
Also, I work on the south side of Syracuse NY and have had my truck broken into once for my stereo equipment. Some of the places I have to travel for work are in less than desireable places to park a car, it needs to be low budget and stealth.
Besides I am a tweaker anyway.
Ok, the Bose system in the SSEi SUKS! Well, the mids and highs are good, and have enough power to get me a ticket in this tight assed town. But the lows suck, anymore than half way and it all drops out. Now here I what I am looking to do, and have some questions.
Back in the day when I was a lower case 'g' (1997) waiting for my sub box for my (2) Boston 12'* to be built for my 79 Hooptie, I hooked my Cerwin-Vega (when they were a good speaker company) 3-way 6x9'* to my Kenwood Sub amp, crossed it out at about 85Hz and had some fun, infact many thought I had a 10 in trunk. While they were not increadably loud, they would drop like a **** and would go reasonably loud.
That is about all I am looking to do here. The SSEi rear deck has some crappy Bose branded 6x9s and some crappy Bose Highs. I want to scrap the 6x9'* and install the CVs that I still have stored at home. (They were in the Trans Am for a while but he stock delcos sounded better, as the old 80'* delcos are real heavy on the highs with aftermarket speakers.) And then buy another Kenwood amp (I sold the origional to my lil bro for $50 last fall :cartman:, and he wont let it go for anything) and run the 6x9s with that amp with lows only. The stock deck will run the ****ty rear highs for some surround imaging. Is there anything in the Bose 'Dynamic Equilization'
that would not allow this to happen? When I put the fader to the front the 6x9'* still put out bass, just like my cousins accord with the Bose option (BTW, stock it still sounds light years ahead of this GM/Bose ****), but the bass is not as loud as when it is faded 50-50. Is this going to be a problem with an aftermarket amp installed to the line-level outputs at the rear speakers, after it goes thru all the Bose crap?
If this does not produce the sound I want, then I am going to get a Bazooka or Boston 10" and run the 6x9'* full range off the deck. The front stage is really good, suprisingly, and has really good imaging so I dont want to screw with that. Just sucks that my $50 Altec Lansing Computer speakers have better lower end then this $900 Bose option. My Buddy has a 1995 Z28 with the Bose Gold and I can hear him thumping when he is comming, sarahs brothers Bose in his 1996 Z can shake the china cabinet in their house. WTF!
