Hey everyone,

Let me start off by saying that i am not into audio to be the loudest or the craziest with my setup. I am in college, and unfortunately, that does not leave you very much spending money for anything outside of books and tuition. With that being said, here is my set-up:

Sub - 2 x MTX 12" 400W RMS @ 2 ohms
Amp - Pioneer GM-D7500 400W x1 @ 2 ohms
Front speakers - MTX TXC 6.1 components 150W RMS @ 4 ohms
Rear speakers - Alpine SPS-610 2-way coaxial 80W RMS @ 4 ohms
Speaker Amp - Sound Ordnance M-4075 4 x 75W RMS @ 4 ohms
Wiring kit - Knukonceptz 4 gauge wiring kit
LOC - PAC AA-GM44
Equalizer - Clarion EQS746 7 band

So i started my install last night, and it was getting dark, so its slightly messy at some points. When i get around to install the speakers, i will hide the wires and make the install look as clean as possible.
Here are a few pics:

Light Wire Electronics Technology Electronic device

Subwoofer Loudspeaker Vehicle audio Car subwoofer Audio equipment

So i just wanted to show what ive got and it sounds really good so far, but i cannot wait to amp the speakers and really kick it up a notch! I just have one question for when i install the speakers. Is there any way to run fresh wire thru the door jam? I know its a clip in kind of setup, and i dont want to mess with it too much if i can help it. But i also would like to not splice into any factory wires if i can help it. If anyone has any feedback or input, feel free to chime in!

Thanks everyone,
Ben

For a college kid you gotta do what ya gotta do. Not a bad setup. Will look nice once it's all cleaned up! Did you mount the EQ next to your leg? Is it possible to move it now? I know what I'm driving I rest my leg there and I have a feeling your leg will turn the knobs.

The knobs on this clarion are very solid. It isnt like a smooth dial, you need to give it a little pressure to move it. And yes, i can move the position of the entire thing if i need too. It is mounted with heavy duty velcro strips. Like the plastic velcro stuff... So it can be moved if needed.

Gotcha!

Tip of the Day: keep music turned low to have conversation with lady sitting in passenger seat. You'll likely reach 3rd base, at least ;)
Im in college bro. There is no such thing as conversation anymore.... I just ask if they want to "study" and then i go to their dorm. HAHAHA. I skip bases. I dont play that game. Im 21, and loving life. Eventually i will change my ways, as i do want kids and marriage one day in the future, but im not looking to settle down while i can still have fun! :)

Every single witty thing I tried to think of in response to this turned into a lecture line my father used to tell me. **** I'm getting older! lol
