Looks good man , I to have had some boomin systems back in my day , I'm 26 ( though i feel older lol ) . I'm pretty happy with this simple setup . Might upgrade the jbl door speakers some point down the road , they are ok now since I turn the bass down and just have to sub hit all of the lows . But clarity could be better .

I've recently come to the conclusion that although I'm 26, I will not be growing out of big bass for a long time, so I just got a 12w6 and am having a factory spec box made for it right now.

hahaha

Some people never grow out of it. In my 30's, still a bass head.

My amp is located under the drivers seat . As long as your amp is less then 2" in height there's plenty of room.

You can use any headunit you want, with either OEM headunit you need a line output converter or you can use the high level inputs if your amp has them.

Im using a cheap PAC converter but theres many to chose from.

well you lose some quality by amplifying a sound signal and then reducing it back down . For example the oem headunit doesnt have RCA outputs , so you taking and amplified signal and reducing it back down.

LC6 helps with clarity and Fq. I think my $20 Pac converter works fine, but if you want the best and maximum clarity LC6 makes a difference.

Yes I did everything myself, sorry I just simply dont have the time to do another install and box .
But there's a lot of shops that i'm sure could build you a nice box just from the details on my blueprint.

i don't believe it, i have run a few tests on the speaker outputs with an oscilloscope. output is flat from top to bottom. your $20 PAC may not be as adjustable, but i can almost guarantee quality is identical

SlowComa, normally I would agree with you but a simple LOC cant do what a dedicated/gain one like the LC2i can. My amp (MTX Thunder 251D) doesnt have any xover in it so a basic LOC will sound like crap. I just finished installing the LC2I and ACR-1 in my truck and after a bit of tuning im very happy with it and surprised how well such a small box fills in the much needed bass response. I will be happy with this setup using the stock HU until many others on the Want list are gone.

you had a specific need that the LC2i met. you saved money by not buying a crossover in this instance. you also wanted a remote volume controller. so it is money well spent in your situation

Looks good , basic sound deadening is key in that location . I also did some on the plastics that cover the rear seats . That made a huge differance aswell .
