Need help and recommendations please!!
Hi, I am kinda new to posting in the forum. So excuse me if I do anything wrong or looked down apon, lol. So This is for mainly audiofiles who have experience installing systems and what not. OK, so here is the situation. My goal is to have a very nice sounding SQ sound system in my 350Z. Nothing crazy or ridiculous just something nice sounding with a little 3D staging. I have put in a cheap system in before but now I have moved on. I bought a pair of Focal ES165KX2 Components for the front, a pair of Focal EC165K2 Coaxials for the rear, and a Focal E25KX 10" Sub in a sealed box in the rear. I have them being powered with an Alpine MRV-V500 5 channel amp (I know this is not much but it's all i have at the moment.) The front components are meant to be biamped and since i don't have enough channels at the moment I just have 2 wires coming from each terminal (a + and - for the woofer, and a + and - for the tweeter.) But only for 2 of the channels. I have the coaxial's being powered by channels 3 and 4 and i have the sub being powered by the 5th channel. I am also running a Kenwood Headunit (DNX772BH) But I have reason to suspect that the channels are fried in it or something cause it just does not sound right if i don't have the position adjustment (the setting where you put in how far the speakers are from you.) set to something beside 0.00 feet. Either way it's just ****ed up. I really need help with deciding what I need to get now in order for it to sound good. Cause at the moment I don't think it sounds all too hot. The car is fully sound deadened and i could take it to a shop and have them tell me but I would really like to learn off of this and do it my self. I just need help deciding if I need to get new amps first, headunit, DSP, or what amps to get, and why . I'd really like to use the focal speakers however because they were pretty pricey and I would be cool ditching the alpine if its not needed and or getting a new head unit. Please help me and it would be helpful to provide links to what you recommend to get in order to complete this build so it sounds bad ass. Thank you.
