Re: My '05 EM2 - Project Bass

On the way to Cali, got a few speeding tickets along the way..

Here's a few shots of my clearance. I'm trying to go lower, but right now there's less than a 1/2 inch of clearance from exhaust to ground. The wheels I'm getting will reduce stock wheel diameter by about an inch. As you can see this poses a problem. I may have to replace mid pipe with 2.5" for extra clearance but I really don't want to. Any other suggestions from the slammed masters here?

Re: My '05 EM2 - Project Bass

Looks like an awesome build list

for the ICE
Why only 500/1 for two 12W3's?
You could probably find 1000/1's all day on craigslist for about 300~400. Especially around FL if you're there.
And get a set of Monster RCA's :P

I had at one point two JL 500/1 mono blocks but as soon as I put power to em they blew my 2 kickers comp 12's within a few minutes. I sold one of the mono blocks and kept one. I might sell the other one also and upgrade to the 1000/1 but before that I'm trying to get a 4 chan 300/4 to power the JLs inside the car. I kno I can prolly find them used but I'd like to just save up and buy everything new.

Re: My '05 EM2 - Project Bass

May take your advice on the RCA's but I haven't even had a working stereo long enough to hear a difference. My stereo will get some attention after I get my first set of wheels. Not legit without wheels!

Lol, Kicker's can't handle the awesomeness of JL
And I wouldn't buy a new 1000/1...
Those things are expensive. A used one is just as good, for less than half the price.
As for the speaker amp, grab a JX 360/4, they're cheap and sound great.

Lol you're prolly right man those Kickers didnt last 10 min! And I'd buy used if I could find one blemish free. I'm pretty particular about that which is why I always just buy new. JX's are def great amps for the price but I'm pretty set on the Slash series lol they already have v3 out I can't keep up! I might sell my old v1 500/1 and upgrade everything to Slash v3. My stereo def will get the same kind of attention the rest of the car has been getting just need a little time thats all haha. So a round of v3 stuff and monster RCA's check
