subaru impreza speakers : Hi all, it has been quite a while since I have posted in here, but I wouldgreatly appreciate some suggestions here.I am soon to be purchasing a 2001or 2002 Subaru Impreza, and plan on putting asystem in it first thing. I'm recieving a settlement, which is allowing me tobuy the car, and also gives me some cash to put into the system.Now, as far as amps and the deck, I think I can do alright finding what I want,I have had several systems over the years. But, my question has more to dowith speakers and subs.Now, I am pretty much a metal head, and listen to alot of very bass/drum heavydeath metal, and lots of other types of metal that is very heavy on thebass/drums and with intricate guitar work. I have never heard a system, (notthat I'm SUPER experienced or anything) that sounds real good with this type ofmusic, and thats what I want to focus on. I am very picky about my music, andam way more concerned with SQ than anything else. I have pretty much already decided I will go with 10" subs, due to the tighterbass which is important to me. But I will need a sub that is able to play VERYfast, as the bass and drums in death metal is very intense. I have blown up afew speakers that just couldnt handle it. So, basiclly I'm looking for somesuggestions on brand/types of subs to check out. I don't want to waste alot oftime trying to narrow down through subs that just won't handle my needs. Powerwon't be much of an issue, as I plan to have more than adequate power to runthe system. So, anyone have any ideas for subs worthy of checking out?
subaru impreza speakers : Also, I don't know exactly what type of speakers are in the front of an Imprezajust yet, but I would like to run a component system up there. I doubt I willgo with rear speakers at the moment. I need something with a strong midbass,and a very clear sound. Metal music tends to hurt my ears when played throughspeakers that are too "bright", and I need something very clear to pick up allthat is going on throughout a song. So, anyone that can give me a direction tohead when looking for speakers would be greatly appreciated as well.Also, anyo other metal fans I would love to hear what has worked for you.This is a myth. Enclosure design, crossover points/slopes, and thesubwoofer itself will have more to do with "tightness" than the actual sizeof the driver. Besides, most of the time "tightness" is mistakenlyattributed to the subwoofer, when in fact it's more of a byproduct of a goodmidbass setup. Go with a good 6.5" up in the front, *installed correctly*,and adequately powered. If it's going into the doors, then consider eitheran actual enclosure (if it's a dedicated midbass driver) or sealing andsound-deadening the door perfectly.
subaru impreza speakers : Sure. The Adire Shiva, Image Dynamics IDQ series, and JL W3 series tend tobe modestly priced options. Spend your time perfecting the enclosure andyou'll be happy. Frankly, almost any subwoofer installed in the correctenclosure, driven with plenty of power, and having power handling to sparewill perform well.CDT comes to mind. In fact, you can find 3-way component sets of theirs fora very decent price. Use active crossovers to bandpass your midbass driversand high-pass your mid/tweet (separated by the passive crossover). You'llbe able to feed them with plenty of power from a 4-channel amp, or two2-channels of course. The front speaker installation is key! The midbassdrivers are where your "tightness" comes in.I don't really listen to metal, but the closest thing to it that I do listento would be something like Tool or Slayer. My audio system is similar tothe one I outlined above, and I've had good results with those bands.Thank you much, its good to be back in a position to be involved in this again.Hmmm....Very interesting. I am moving real soon, to the greater Seattle area,so will be looking for a good shop to do this installation. I don't want to toyaround on a brand new car myself. If anyone is in the Seattle area by the way,and has any reccomendations, I'd love to hear them. I want this system tosound great, so I'm not going to deal with anything other than the best aroundon this.
subaru impreza speakers : So, what effect does the size of the sub truly have then, if the enclosuremakes the most difference? I mean, what is the benefits or differences between10s and 12s for different musical tastes? Any?Thanks for the ideas.. I had already been considering checking out the Shivaand IDQ.. but I don't know where I can go to hear them around here. Thanks for the input. I'm glad to hear that you are happy with your sound.Slayer would be on the somewhat light end of what I listen to, but itsdefinetly a starting point for comparison. The differences aren't as substantial as many people think. When comparinga 12" and a 10" of the same series within the same brand, there MAY beslight differences in transient response as you suggest in your originalpost, but they're typically virtually negligible. Ultimately, the effectsof enclosure and the other things I mentioned by far outweigh the transientresponse difference that may or may not exist. And then to compare a 10 anda 12 of different brands is just anybody's guess. It's even harder toarrive at a generalization with that. But, as I said, if you compare thesame brand and series, you'll often find that the 12" can handle more powerthan the 10", requires a larger box than the 10", and has a greatersensitivity than the 10".
subaru impreza speakers : JL 10W7, ported, with an amp with 1000 watts or more (the JL 1000/1ispricey, maybe an old Zapco Z300C2 bridged for clean power for about $350,and an audiocontrol x-over) or an iDMAX 10 when it's released. For fronts,ID chameleons are very good for the $$, around $250 on carmedia1, or go allout somewhat, and get rainbow pros for like 600, or dynaudio's for like thesame, and I would go with another Z300C2 if you can find it, check ebay.Check out the pioneer premier line of HU's for these speakers. Justin"Solduc1979" wrote in message...Depending on which impreza you decide to buy, you will have to consider themounting depth of your speakers. It was less of an issue in models prior to2002 but the new age impreza has really thin doors. I have an impreza WRXsedan and the stock speakers were just awful. You cant simply drop a newspeaker most of the time since you only have about 1 ½ inch of depth b4 youhit the window. I installed boston pros 6.5 in my front doors and i had tomake a spacer with 3/4 wood in order for them to fit. Since the speakercomes out further than it should, you also have to trim some of the plasticon the inside of the door panel itself to make sure the cone doesnt hit thecover when it hits hard.
