Is my system any good? - GM Forum - Buick, Cadillac, Chev, Olds, GMC & Pontiac chat


Audio (and aftermarket electronics) This is your place for alarms, remote starters, to brag about your system, exaggerate your db levels, or simply ask questions for stock or aftermarket audio. No Flames! (except from roasted amps)

Default Is my system any good?

Ok here it is. I will get pics up soon but for now I'll just tell you what I have.
1)kenwood head unit
2)4ga ground and power cables
3)gold plated o2 free rca'*
4)12ga speaker wire
5)200amp fuse in square fuse block(way expensive!)
6)jensen mka 500wt competition amp(I hate big amps)
7)mtx box for hatchback cars that fits in the trunk and I could easily put 2 more of them in there!
2 12" sony xplod subs
Just wondering what you guys think my system would push in a db drag or something.
I need a capacitor and probably a component system to replace the stock speakers!

I would be really interested to see or get your feedback on it. Personal preference.. I will not go with Sony Xplod Subs.. I"ve heard them and they don't hit accuretly nor low enough in my opinion. If money allows JL is #1 choice for me.. I will be trying out Cerwin Vegas hopefully this summer. I"ve never tried Jensen Amps so I don't know how they are. Went through a few amps in my lifetime and the best I"ve had was JBL'* ( the are way underated and WILL push out the RMS as stated if not more ). My old ( gone now ) 500 Watt JBL unit kicked major a$$ and blows the doors off even my last one ( which got stolen ) Acoustic Audio'* A1000 1000watt amp. But at the same token.. I"m gettin old so having the music crankin major SPL and DB to the point everyone within 2 block radius can here is a little too much for me now. I want it to play hard clear and pound hard enough at high enough decibal for me to still tolerate IN my car.. not have to flick a remote buttons outside the car to go.. cool huh.. now give me a boost so I can get home.. hahaha.. But again.. the key is if you're happy with how it sounds.. that'* all that matters. Let us know on it.

That is way true about the son'y not hitting evenly and they don't hit low enough. they sound like a midrange! but they don't sound too bad. I am going to go with a pair of audiobahn flame series subs after I get my new airdam and paint it which will be a while down the road :(

thats ok for someone who wants good sounding music...gives LITTLE bass...( empahsising little) but a 200 amp fuse...you use a fuse so that you dont blow your crap on a power spike...with that fuse youll blow your crap on a power spike but it wont break....thats a beast! i had 2 12 " sonys...SUCKED....go with mtx...JL....rockford...kenwood deck...i woudlnt recommend...but its decent...pending which model you have.....you kinda wasted money on a 500 W amp...specially on a jensen...it pushed out what...125 x 2 @ 4 ohm? or what?...but overall...its a DECENT...system....
