I'm slowly building a SQ system in my Honda Civic 4dr. What I have now is 5 1/4" and tweaters in the lower front corner of the front doors and 4 1/2" mid and tweater in the rear deck for rear fill and a JL 12W3V3 sub in a sealed box rear firing in the trunk. I'm running the mids and highs with a JL 300/4V2 and the sub with 500/1V2. I've set the front speakers to full volume and until they just start to distort and then turned it back a little to keep a clear sound at any volume level. The rears I control with the HU and have them set about 5-7db lower than the fronts. Plus I have the amp gain turned down all the way. The front speakers are JL C5 components. Very nice sounding. What suggestions would you make to get the sound stage up higher in the car and out front as if it were outside?
Keep in mind I'm not selling my car and buying another just for this SQ project.
I want to make use of this Civic since I'm the sole driver of it and use it everyday for commuting. I want to listen to a good quality system and enjoy my ride before walking into a house of screaming kids and a wife who looks like she hasn't slept in a week. And that comment suggests a budget. Also keep that in mind.
