    This thing is great bang for the buck and sounds great after full calibration/tweaking. Took me about 30 hours to install. If I had the double the funds I would of went with IDQ amplifiers, Audiocontrol processor with time alignment, IDQ subs in the ********* fiberglass box, and Image Dynamics XS instead of the CXS. I had to basically gut the inside and make my own harness as I was sent the wasn’t sent the proper one and all ready had my truck ripped apart. Luckily my local audio supplier had color match wires for FR, FL, RR, and RL in positive/negative. 2F24E1F6-B543-4E11-A570-ADEC99C1F03F.jpgC328259F-BCE8-4CDA-93D8-C05BA27A76A9.jpg C47C4146-3F57-4B72-B526-F4EB0EFB0E1C.jpg15E777D4-7C87-474F-BFB5-1B4621C253F0.jpg 8F9D4D2A-E9CB-4DDF-AC61-273B74EA50DB.jpg5B9B8572-7550-422F-9281-8273F9E489D3.jpg 41FFB453-4A1D-4D6D-BA6E-7EE0510EC3EB.jpgFD60E1A2-825D-4A70-BAEB-8D7A81066808.jpg 5ECC5411-C00A-4E8C-BD4D-CAF5628EC83B.jpgE3C9212F-3427-400C-A42C-25420F0F0A2B.jpg

    would you consider selling the speakers and bass knob separately?

    The speakers can be bought new from Sonic Electronics, Amazon, or eBay. The bass knob is part or the 1000watt amp and you could prefer one from Taco Tunes.

    No man not stupidity. It’s a bang for the buck system. Taco Tunes did this package which I sourced out and purchased some from them and the deadener, components, and wire from other sources. Just the processor and amplifiers came through them. I wonder what an audiocontrol or different processor would do for me. I’m happy but, then again I’ve spent three times the money on other gear. Any questions let me know.

    Image Dynamics have been around for countless years and we’re a go to for SQ in the past. My first time using them. I’ve spent a lot more money on JL Audio, Zapco, and HAT.

    I am currently building a system in stages because of my budget too. Probably will make a build thread here soon. So far I've deadened doors, floor, back wall, with deadener, ccf, and mlv. Roof only got deadener and ccf. I've got a bunch of spare amps and a Hertz h8 that I'm going to use for the stock speakers while keeping the stock HU and adding a sub in a custom box I built for my double cab.

    As far as speakers go, I've had Rainbows and German Maestro. Might drop some serious cash on morel virtus 3 ways that are about 750. Definitely trying to find warmer sounding speakers that still have some clarity for way less tho. How would you say the ID speakers sound?

    I like the ID even though I’m sure with more power and a better class amp I would love them even more. I git them for $200 a pair but, wouldn’t mind hearing its bigger brother the XS. Good bang for the buck. Ive had JL Audio C5s and a pair of $700 3.7” drivers before. I’m trying not to spend anymore.
