I have an Alpine head unit, 2 Fosgate amps (1500 running 6 in Infinity mids) & (2000 running my subs). The subs and amps are mounted under the hatch done very clean can't even see any wires. Need some good power to run them and have four optima batteries to carry the load. The system seems to hold up just fine to this point in time!!

I would imagine that most people have different stereos.

Take a look at the head units with mp3 playback capability. Burn a CD with your favorite tunes, and don't change the disk for many hours. A good mp3 player will have a 30-sec anti-skip buffer cache.

MB Quart/Rockford Fosgate has a nice unit with wired remote capabilities. These two features (wired remote + mp3) were the basis of my search.

Memphis Car Audio has killer amps, too. Check out the Memphis Belle.

I'm also a big fan of MB Quart Subs and main speakers.

Cheers,
Brian

Ran-Dom 32,
How much bass are you getting in the cockpit while running? Do you have any subs mounted in the cockpit?
thanks,
Dan

I currently have the stock Sony head unit, 400watt Fosgate amp & 4 6X9 Babbs speakers. It sounds good for being a simple system. It has held up with no problems for 5 seasons.

that is the only sub in my system, cabin acts like a big bass box, sounds great, no distortion - & bass does'nt drown out the highs.
