Being it that time of year again, I figure its time to put some wood working skills together, and upgrade the system.

Now, Im 95% sold on a Clarion DXZ675 for the head unit. Ive heard nothing but great things. (Of course if anyone has other opinions lol feel free).

As for the sub... Im sure I want a 15" or 12"
Ive looked at the Clarion, A few from MA Audio.... But im not sure which company to "trust". Ive heard of too many companies rating their subs much higher than what they can actually handle. Ive browsed around quite a bit here, and it seems the "big" names arent always the way to go. Anywho.... Im still not sure what I want to settle on. Please... All opinions open. Im not looking to spend more than 500$ Canadian for 1 sub...

Now for the amp.. This is the very tricky part. I have absolutely NO idea what I want. Price for amp isnt really all that important. I can fork out the cash if need be.

I know this thread is as typical as the other ones... But reading through them.... I feel I need something a bit more direct. The system will be going into the trunk of a 1998 Cavalier z24. I dont need to leave alot of space, just for a 24 of cans... (that is beer for the youngins)

Anywho guys, Any help is appreciated. Opinions of companies would be extremely helpful.

Thanks in advance,

Ill be honest here, I had 2 675's and they were both crap. My 575 was great, my 775 was great but the 675 was a piece of garbage. Poor SQ even compared to the 575, glitchy interfaces, and the slide broke on both units.

I love my other 2 but the 675 I would never buy again.

There are many smaller brand companies that offer excellent equipment and service at competitive prices. Quite often you are able to talk to the company owner in person. I would look at some of them. As well, keep in mind the small companies make gear that will do what they claim, they dont have a name to fall back on...

have a look at the TF1 subs that are available right here on this forum, great subs, use small enclosures, take loads of power, sound great and get loud.
