I'm getting set to order my sound deadener and cables so I can get that in before I buy my amps and speakers. I was hoping to get some of the Polkie input on my choices.
Going with KnuKoncept throughout. 0/1 AWG Kolossus Flex from the battery then going through distribution blocks and using 4AWG at the amps themselves. The distance from the amp to the crossovers will be super short, and then run from the crossovers in the trunk to the front speakers with 8g Karma SS for all connections.
Just wondering if these gauges of cable are sufficient and whether there are other better/cheaper places to get all my wiring.
This is a tough one for me. All these options are looking like they are in the $300-400 range for me with shipping and I'm not sure which to go with. Oh, and the car being dampened is an Acura RSX.
Dynamax Xtreme Mega Pack: I get 72sqft of the stuff but I have to buy it off eBay which is always questionable. I'm also unsure as to their hype vs actual quality ratio. (usually too much hype = crap, i.e. rockford fosgate)
Second Skin Damplifier Pro: I get 80sqft of this stuff. Only problem is I'm not sure if they ship to Canada or not yet.
RAAMaudio RAAMmat BXT: I can get 125sqft of this one. In addion, I can include some Ensolite foam and the adhesive for it, and the price is still comparable to the other two. From what I've heard however, this stuff might need the several extra sqft for multiple layering to get the same effect as Damplifier, or Dynamat. I would also have to drive to the US and bring it back to get it all affordably.:(
How much material did you all use when you did you car?
Recommendations welcomed :)
