Let's hear your setups.

I have
Kenwood H/U
MP3, Sirius, HD Radio capable. 5v preamp outs, sub control, 3 band EQ, remote.

MB Quart components
I did a little custom work to my doors to make 6.5" speakers fit and installed these. Have the mids and crossovers mounted in the doors. Tweeters are mounted by the "sail panel" on the flat part of the door handle, in front of the window controls and angled toward the driver/passenger.
I have the crossovers attenuated to the highest settings. I like highs.

(2) JL Audio 10's
2 JL 10W1 subs mounted in a sub zero enclosures box made specifically for 99-03 crew cab super duties.
Sub zero's website is real top quality stuff.

JL mono block amp
Can't remember the wattage right now but it's a monoblock JL amp and pushes these subs hard at only about 70%

All in all a really good sounding combo I think. I love the component sounds, music just sounds so much different, clearer, more alive; better. For the kind of music I prefer Rock, Country, etc it sounds great. If I were a hard core rapper I'd need way more sub, but these 10's are an awesome compliment to the component sound I was looking for. Tight, quick hitting bass, not tubby.
The rear speakers are stock for now. My goal is to eventually get a set of Diamond Audio components for the front, and move the current MB Quarts to the rear.

So, that's my setup. What's yalls ??? :rockwoot:

Nothing to rub in...once I hit the lotto...THEN I'll have something to rub in. LOL
I dream of Rainbow components and Butler amps.
I'm thinking about going bigger than that. considering adding another set of 165K2P's up front with another amp. 1 set in the doors...1 set in the kicks....1 tweet in the door...1 in the a-pillar.
I want it louder...only way to do that the way I want it is to add more drivers up there. Plus the piller tweets wil raise the soundtage.
That's how mine is now...I can't listen to more than 1 song with the volume anywhere over 1/2 way. But a little louder never hurt anything. LOL
I built mine with only 2 requirements: Clear...and loud.
Yea danny...just flip the brackets around and side to'll gain about 3" of space behind the rear seat.
I have the same seat Dennis...I needed another inch of I took off the back of the seats and redrilled the bolt holes 1" forward.
You can't tell anything ever happened and it got me the space I needed.....I'm cheap like that sometimes. LOL
UHHhhhh...something tells me you're the guy that thinks the gain knob on your amp is a volume knob.
It's not the size of your power's the quality of the copper strands.
Amp size does matter...ever hear of headroom ?
I could go on........
