Alright, I *SHOULD* be picking up a new truck this week, hopefully Wednesday! Well, new to me at least.
Thankfully, I have a couple of items already I can use in the vehicle. Here is what I'm starting out with -
- A Kicker ZX350.4 amp, looks to be 60x4 at 4ohm, I plan on running two channels for the front components and bridging two channels for my sub. I've used it that way in a vehicle before and it sounded fine. The output for bridged is 175@4ohm.
- I also have a Kicker CVX 10" in a truck box, but I may have to purchase a box that will fit in my new truck and not be seen.
So, I'm going to keep this on somewhat of a budget, I'm not looking for competition SQ, just something that sounds better than the average setup. I will not be reusing any power or speaker wire from my current vehicle, but I may use the cheepo RCA's that came in the Wal-Mart wiring kit I bought years ago, unless I need to go another route.
I'm left with power wire, fuse, head unit, and front speakers. (I won't be using any rears) My head unit choices are as follows, keep in mind that I wish to have blutooth built in, and would like the option of using my steering wheel controls.
The Sony doesn't offer HD radio, but does have a 7 band eq as opposed to the other two which have 5. I AM OPEN TO OTHER SUGGESTIONS, the truck can house a double-din, but I'm not finding anything that doesn't break the bank and looks good.
I'm at a loss for speakers with so many options, it looks as if I can fit a 6-3/4 or 6-1/2 in the door openings, and the tweeter in the factory location located on the front of the door. I'd like to keep the head unit and speakers in the 400-500 range at most if possible, like I said, just looking for better than average sound.
Oh and BTW, it's a 2005 Tundra four door, with JBL sound system. Thanks guys.
