Source/Processor - Pioneer P880PRS
Mids/Highs - PPI 356CS 6.5" component set
Mids/Highs amp - CDT Audio SQA4100 110x4 @ 4ohms (running front stage only, no rears)
Subs - Sundown Audio SA-12'* (just two of them)
Sub amp - Sundown Audio SAZ-1500D 1500rms x 1 @ 12.6v (I charge at 14.4v)
Sub box - Custom, 3 cu.ft. ported, tuned to 33Hz, 3/4" 11 ply birch
Battery - SVR 34/78DT Sealed AGM
Speaker wire/RCA'* - KnuKonceptz Karma series 16ga(mids/highs) 12ga(subs)
Amp wiring - JL Audio 2ga, JL Audio 200a ANL fuse/fuse holder, JL Audio dual amp distro block
Sound Deadening - SecondSkin Damplifier Pro, 2 layers on inner and outer doors and rear package tray, 3 layers on trunk lid and trunk floor
Factory deck relocated to glove box
Big 3 done with 2ga.

I like how much control I have over the sound of my system, running 3 way active via the sound processor in my head unit. I plan on upgrading the power to my subs cause they're pretty much laughing at the 750rms each i'm giving them now. I plan on giving them at least 1000-1500rms each once I upgrade my electrical system, which is going to be a Mechman 270a alt (155a @ idle), XS Power D1400 14 volt battery and an XS Power VCM. With those electrical system upgrades I should be able to run as much power as I want with no dimming at all.

I haven't gotten it metered yet, not even sure if I ever will cause that'* really not important to me. As long as it sounds clean and puts a smile on my face that'* all that matters.

The thing with Hertz and Audison is that you can't shop them, they are pretty on top of removing internet sales and will drop a dealer if they suspect them of selling online. They watch ebay and other sites as well. So if you want them you are pretty much stuck with going into a dealer.

Luckily I was good friends with a supplier who managed to hook me up with some decent pricing so I figured I would go all out.

Before I decided on the Hertz I was looking at alpine x-pro, they were okay but I had heard a few systems and they left me wanting.

I'm looking at getting a kenwood hu, I really like their stuff. That'* a nice Kenwood setup you've got going Nick.
