Default Sweet sounds for your Bonne...

Hey there.

I have a 1998 Bonneville SLE, and I installed Kicker Resolution separates in the factory locations in each door, and 6 1/2" woofers in each rear deck location, and then TWO 10" Kicker Competition drivers in a sealed box in the trunk. IT SOUNDS INCREDIBLE! I am using ALPINE Amplifiers, and a 1 microferrat capacitor to make sure I don't have any voltage drops to my amps. I have a Clarion Pro Audio in-dash CD player that is incredible too. I use 4 gauge red power source wire from gold plated side post terminals into the battery and installed a second 4 gauge ground directly from the battery to the body of the car so there is not any whining from the alternator.

Hope this helps.

Todd

infinity perfect components amped up sound amazing, infinity has a good warranty and great customer service, which leads me to always going back for more. They actually had a 3 year warranty on their subs, I ended up blowing one within 1.5 years and exchanged no problem.

Focal - http://www.orcadesign.com/index.htm

This speaker is based on the design of the 38VX by Kimon Bellas. I have 2 of those in old Altec Voice-of-the-Theater enclosures (a horn loaded box about 3 ft square). Talk about bass! I do some DJ work outdoors. I've been asked to turn down the bass running the setup in an open parking lot. I like the Focals. And if you're doing anything passive, look at the AXON components too. Awesome quality. They ain't cheap tho. :(

Thanks for the ideas, I have already considered the Infinity.
The Focals are probably a little out of my price range. don't get me wrong I'm not lookin to cheap out, but I am looking for a happy medium.

Thanks again,

Tim

Yes, the Focals are quite expensive, and not for many at all. Not everyone wins the lottery...and when I do I have my eye on a 73 Challenger. Dynaudio also makes some kick-a$$ pieces at a more affordable price.

Yeah I like the Dynaudio stuff.
They make high quality products, I may look a little deeper into them.

I also like the Diamond Audio components,

Thanks for the links.
