After installing my 12" SoloX I have finally gotten the bass that I've always wanted. loud but smooth bass response with seamingly an unlimited amount of power and bottom end. I am using two SX1250.1's with one per voice coil. The sub is in a sealed 1.5 cu.ft. box and it plays very low (surprisingly). I figure I am still upwards of about 140 Db or so on the sensors but that comes secondary to the smoothness of the bass.

I will post pics once I make it look pretty .

The front stage consists of a pair of Kicker SS65's with tweeters mounted concentrically. They are temporarily mounted in modified stock locations in the doors for my '92 240SX. Although imaging is not that great, it is still much better than a decent sounding front end.

Actually, forget everything about what you may have thought about the old Kicker resolution speakers as these do not sound anything like them. They have a true warmth to them comparable to that of a Boston Pro or even a high-end Focal. No harshness or 'poppy' mid-bass here. 30 mm tweeters sound not unlike the old A/D/S monsters from back in the day.

I am working on my custom kick panels at this point so all facets of 'SQ' will be achieved. I will soon post picks of my Kick-panel build-up.

Sorry. According to some people on the board SQL has no place in car audio. Apparantly you cannot have Loud Sound Quality

Sez who Jared??

It's a lot harder but not impossible..at loud volumes stuff rattles so it's a lot more work to control that aspect, for one...but I wouldn't have it any other way.
