will you be using the HU power for the interior speakers or an separate amp?
Definitely going to want a new amp... Haven't picked which one out yet. I'm still planning my budget deficit. I have a list of items I'm saving up for, some of which include:will you be using the HU power for the interior speakers or an separate amp?
How about this how about i can put toghter a system that will sound better than ''car audio'' stuff?Really? Lol. I don't like factory rims: 1) Most everyone has them, or 2) They are extremely overpriced....
Got some pics of any of the GM rims you like? Or do you actually like the standard equipped ones?
As for audio, I haven't had the time to decide where I want to put which audio components at the top of my budget... gotta prioritize them. I know my head unit is definitely going at the top of my list. Which, I've already picked out... I had a decent kenwood system in my car that was all customized by Audioworld. It was good, probably one of the best audio systems in the parking lot at my high school two years ago. But, I'm not settling for 'good' in my G6, I want greatness.
I might go back with some kenny's, kickers...I haven't really done my research into the current audio market to see whats good right now (aside from the HU.) So I need to look into that... Suggestions welcomed though. :bigok: I am an audiophile, as I play guitar and have a trained ear for things. So I can hear the difference in sound qualities...
How much cash you working with? for everything wire hu,amps speakersThe first rims in your last post...looked exactly like the Konig's I was originally wanting to get... And those last rims, the Caddy's...Those are ballin. But they are Cadillac's... And thats how Caddy's roll. haha. I never thought I want 5 single, thinnish spokes, until I saw how great they look on the car. Man, it changed my mind about those rims. I plan on getting those rims I posted the pic of, and painting my calipers 2-tones to contrast my car and rims.
Be my guest if you'd like to put together a list, suggestions are always welcomed!

>300$ Yeah it' aint worth the upgrade
500-700$ I can kinda work with that
800-1100$ I can work with that
1.2K-1.7K$ I see you want do some sound comps
1.8k-2.6k$ baller ay?
3.0k-5k$ WTF you damn audiophile
6k-10k$ srsly in a G6 ?????
10k-20k$ you going to sema or something?
Didn't see your comment until just now... and I agree. Heck, I even like the JBL sound system my mom's RAV4 has over our "premium" sound sytem... A girl friend of mine has a VW Beetle that has the monsoon sound system... G6's should not be matched to a little vdub in terms of sound quality. ...and the fact that I don't like having the same system as her....lolOn the Monsoon System topic, your right. The Pioneer system in my G5 GT is much better than the Monsoon one in the G6. At least I think so.
When I bought the G6 that was like the one downgrade that I didn't like. It was that my G5 had a better stock sound system.
Dang son, that's pretty detailed. Good job...
But I left out one minor detail... (Oops!) That budget was AFTER the fact of purchasing a head unit (No, I haven't bought one yet.)
So? that means I still have 2G's to work with , But I will say this..I would never drop a G on a HU, if i got anymore than 500$ i'm going carputer...Just thought i wouls share
I've already decided that I'm going to get the Pioneer AVIC-Z110BT... That alone is over a grand, but well worth it. Starting either next month, or the end of this month, I'll start the buying process of things for my G6... That should be quite exciting. ..
And expensive but HELP THE ECONOMY!!
I might even go this weekend if I can and actually get the windows tinted. haha.
Done.... Group deal
Edit: I'm almost off work, I'll go over your list when I get home later...but I noticed a second battery...this setup isn't going to need a new / additional alternator is it? haha
No, Just one BIG ass battery that will be recolated to the trunk. you should do the alt.... But I think you have have a 120amp more likely a 150amp and two of the amplifers have 35amp fuses and the other a 45 amp so in theory you should be fine
Focus on the front stage..... two good door speakers two good tweets.I was doing some reading on the HYBRID AUDIO LEGATIA L1v2 and they seem to be pretty good actually... And our cars actually have 8 speakers, 4 tweets (2 in the door, 2 above the bass), 2 bass, and 2 mids.
It seems like all aftermarket tweets and some speakers are going to require some sort of fabrication to fit our car...
What about the mid range? And I'll check that site out.Focus on the front stage..... two good door speakers two good tweets.
simple and it works.
as far as the cartputer go look around on mp3car.com for ideas
