Bun707 Posted March 29, 2006 Share Posted March 29, 2006 Hey Fellow LGT owners… I just picked up my new 06 LGT Limited and love it. I wouldn’t quite call myself an “audiophile” but I do love and feel I can appreciate a great sounding stereo. The stock system is pretty lacking in clarity and bass in my opinion. So I’ve read lots of posts here and poked around for a couple of days. Basically, my goals are: 1)Solid, clear bass but not too strong. Nothing like a couple 12”s would put out, just to round out the sound. 2)Clear crisp mids and not too shrill of highs (it irritates me) 3)Cheap/Best bang for the buck 4)Out of sight… no huge amps or sub boxes in trunk. I have the onboard Navi and that kills the space under the driver seat so if I buy a Subaru underseat sub, I’d have to move the stock wiring to the passenger side. So, here’s what I’m toying with doing based on my findings: > Infinity 6012i or 6012si all the way around ($65/pair x 2 = $130 at etronics.com) or Polk DB650’s all the way around ($85 x 2 = $170 at many stores) >Power Akoustik A600-4HP Amp (good reviews especially for only $70 at etronics.com) I need to measure but I think this could slip under the front passenger seat and save me some trunk room it’s 11.25”x11”x2.4”. I don’t know if this amp would give me stronger bass with the upgraded speakers. I just know with my old Honda, I put in a new Sony HU with more power and it made my crappy stock speakers sound WAY better and they hit harder. Wonder if that’ll translate to this setup? Or, if I should forgo the amp, I could do the Subaru (Panasonic) under-the-seat sub with just the speakers powered from the Stock HU. I’ve seen it for prices in the low $100s. I know it’s not the greatest quality or power but maybe it’d be enough? Essentially, this would run $200-$350 + shipping and supplies. I think that sounds pretty reasonable. I hoping to get some opinions or recommendations based on my modest budget and desires. Thanks in advance! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
