Agreed.... Saw this a while back and couldn't justify the cost. 700-800.00 would be more reasonable although 500 would be the sweet spot.I suspect the Pioneer system doesn't have the interface for the required auxiliary amp. I just wish this weren't so bloody expensive.
Your computer speakers via his microphone wouldn't sound anything like it does in the car.I love how he doesn't even show us how it sounds though, how convenient, lol! I know youtube is funny about audio copyright but he could have played us at least like a 30-45 sec music sample!
I've been working on a side mount design for a little while now actually, in between the backed up orders I have on standard boxes. I just haven't said anything because I wanted to wait till it was done. The demand is simply far too high for me to simply ignore it, lol. How soon do you need one? I have all of the parts here, including two more subs and compact amplifiers.So when are you going to take a stab at the side mount design?
I'd be in for that. If it helps, i'm not interested in blowing kicker's socks off sound. lol
No pics yet, but it will probably be done some time in January. I've been busy working on other boxes I had backed up for a while. There is only one affordable sub that I know of that will sound great in that small of a box and it's the one I decided to use. Very high build quality, and it will look and sound great.Nice!
The Cruze isn't going to get love until tax time so no hurry. Care to share progress pics?
Don't do it. It's simply a bad idea. The trunk isn't sealed off enough to allow you to get any amount of deep bass out of 6x9 subwoofers in general, unless all you're looking for is boomy bass. That, and you'd have to make some custom brackets to mount the subs to the 6x9 holes. On top of that, the rear deck pad on the base system isn't designed to support 6x9s. The Pioneer upgraded systems actually have a different rear deck with a grille opening for the 6x9 subwoofers to allow the sound to get through without getting muffled. I guess you could make your own holes and install an aftermarket grille, but I don't like making permanent cosmetic modifications unless absolutely necessary.I would be interested in a compact, corner-mount sub, sometime in 2013. Let me know when you get your final design done.
Just out of curiosity - I haven't looked to see if the rear deck is cut for the 6x9 speakers that the Pioneer system uses, but what's the thought on putting a couple of free-air 6x9 subs in the rear deck? Tang Band W69-1042J 6"x9" Subwoofer 264-837
