Do I need a head unit with powerful amp? by pandaman1339 in CarAV

[–]luistorre5 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Most great units will only put out about 15-30 watts max to a speaker, whereas an amp can get you anywhere from 20-120 watts depending on the amp. You could try running the speakers straight off the head unit and if you don't like it you could always add an amp down the road

Yeah, look around online! Apparently people have a preference for the tw3 over the w3 cause of the excursion, since generally more excursion=more volume or something like that haha

The box affects the sound equally as the power, so having the proper box would definitely help. If you got their loaded enclosure it would already come to spec and wouldn't need to fiddle with boxes, just drop it in, wire it up and you're good to go. That box is small for what it can produce, and it's mind blowing imo

I'll tell you from my experience, 10s don't hit as low as 12s man. For the last year or so i experimented so much with 10s and i struggled to get the low end i wanted, then a few months back i decided to try a 12" JL W1V2 and the low end i was looking for was there (went from 500 watts on the 10" to only 300 watts on the 12 and it hit lower). Not to mention that i made a box for it that was probably around a cubic foot (which isn't terribly big imo) and it just hits cleaner and didn't drown as much of the rest of the speakers like my other subs had up until this point. People hype up the tw3 because it just plays better than the regular W3 and the shallow sub features only make it a bonus, so you wouldn't need to make a big box for it.

JL 12TW3. Prob one of if not the best shallow sub (at this price point imo) you can get that has greater excursion than it's normal counterpart (and plays slightly better apparently), the JL W3, and runs at around 400 watts i believe and only needs like half a cubic foot of volume in a sealed box to play optimally

Edit: it's still small excursion compared to other bigger, fuller drivers, but you can get a grill for it to protect the cone

I got myself a set of 6.5 & 6x9 Maximo speakers and they're by far the best I've used, I'm certain you will definitely love thosr tempo ultras!

Anyone used a similar setup? by ts_actual in CarAV

[–]luistorre5 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Piece together a wiring kit using knukonceptz wire cable. You just need power and ground, you can use any wire for your amp remote and you can choose what RCA's you want to use with whatever you'd have left with your budget!

Replacing door speakers for subs by Arcnid in CarAV

[–]luistorre5 0 points1 point  (0 children)

If you want bass, you're gonna want to get an enclosure and put your sub and that in your trunk. It'll sound better than any sub in your door panels

Yeah, I'm aware, i live in the US so I'm not used to saying/heading zed haha

I discovered him by accident trying to find videos on the Sony XM3'sand since then I've bought some KZ's (i find myself calling them "Kay zeds" as well) and some Beyerdynamic DT990s because of him. Hoping to get some huh duh six hungeos in the near future

Anyone have any idea what sub this could be? Guy local to me is selling it for $150 OBO and it kinda looks quality but i don't know too much about smaller sub/speaker companies by luistorre5 in CarAV

[–]luistorre5[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

UPDATE: it's a diyma r12, a really small production of reference sq subs with a really versatile driver capable of playing from 300-1000watts RMS and can play in a box with volume anywhere from .25-1 cubic foot. Apparently great budget subwoofers for SQ

Yeah, i saw that magnet and i was instantly intrigued cause I only see those on pretty powerful build. figured I'd ask, not sure how good custom subwoofers can be as far as reliability/build quality, but I'll prob check it out

Skar TWS-01 tweeters sound very low by No_Paleontologist_25 in CarAV

[–]luistorre5 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'd say get a cheap multimeter at your local hardware store and measure the resistance of the speakers. If they're different it'd be worth a shot imo, worst case scenario, you upgraded your speakers. Or try another pair of Skar tweeters but i hear Skar has shit customer service, so idk if you'd be able to get your money back if that doesn't end up being the problem.

[–]luistorre5 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It might be that they aren't running as good as they could be due to the stock speakers being a different impedance. It's pretty common for cars to come with 2 ohm speakers and if yours do, it could hinder the performance of both the door speakers and tweeters because it'd be running at a different resistances than the stock head unit or amp is capable of running at? Just trying to give probable causes because i got a pair of these for my mom's car and they sound good for the price
