hey guys uhm
im kinda new but
i have 4 holdens
and im working on my executive VL 1990
and im doing the stereo at the moment
so far im running
2 x stereo speakers in the dash
1 x 6 inch sub in the drivers side door
2 x 10 inch flat subs in the parcel shelf
2 x 16 inch subs in the boot
the 16s run off a 520 watt amp in the back
and the rest run off the headdeck amp
at the moment the decibel rating is like
150 ish
what should i do next to improve the sound ?
thanks, spike

for starters i would get rid of the mix of subs and completely simplify the system if you want something sounding good.
get a nice set of 6.5" splits and put them in the door running off a good 2 channel amp.
get rid of the subs in the doors and parcel shelf and ensure the box for the subs in the boot is made to spec. will sound a whole lot better. more is not always best

I've always though the best sound comes from 6.5" components in the front, and 6.5" speakers in the shelf, running off a 4 channel amp.
Im not expert on subs, but if u like a nice tight bass sound go for 2x10" subs,

Like its been said, you cant really go past a nice set of 6.5'' splits, clear and a good sound..

If Your Willin To Send A Little Money Go To Autobarn, Strathfeild...ect And Get A Decent Set Up

I'd Personally Go A Good Sent Of Splits In The Front Doors( Maybe Alpine Type R's 6.5inch) With A Smallish 250-300Watt Amp. The For Your Back Doors Just Get a Good Set Of 3Way 6.5inchs Ran Of The Head Deck And Then Either To 10's Or One 12 With A Amp To Suit The Sub/Subs

But It Depends On Wat Type Of Music You Are Into For Metal/Rock/Puck...Ect A Nice Puchy Bass Line Is The Way To Go Or For Hip Hop/Rap/RnB...Ect A Nice Deep Bassy Sub And Amp Setup Is Good But You Dont Wanna Dround Out Your Speach
