System Install

Hey, im a newby to this forum and also a newby to the car audio field. Ive been reading lots of posts and decided to get some opinions on the setup Im lookin at. Im thinking of getting a whole setup from just 1 company, Infinity. The reason why i chose infinity is because they seem like a very reputable company. Anyways, Ill list the parts now:

Infinity Kappa 63.7i 6.5" 3-way
Infinity Kappa 693.7i 6x9" 3-way
Infinity Kappa 10.7t 1" Tweeters
Infinity Kappa 122.7w 12" Subs (x2)
Infinity Ref 7541A 4-Channel Amp (power the 2 front and 2 rear speakers)
Infinity Ref 1211A Mono Amp (power the 2 subs)

I do not plan on installing an aftermarket headunit because I really like the stock one. BTW, I drive a 03 Accord Coupe. I guess ill also need a 4 channel line output converter?? Do I need Capacitor as well??

Also, I like experimenting and installing things myself, is it a good idea to attempt a system install myself??

Any inputs would be nice and greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Well some guys are not keen on rear fill speakers but that is a personal preference. As for Infinity there gear is great and have never had an issue with there speakers or amps. And as for doing it yourself. This is the best way to save money however if not done properly you can do some damage. (eg electrical shorts, air bag deployment and so on) Be sure you know what you are doing and if you need help there is a wealth of knowledge and a pile of installers here. Just dont cut corners. If there is something while getting into it that you are not sure of just hop on the computer and ask away. Take care.

Think outside of the box dude. You have a entire world of options that you can look at. Infinity is alright gear but there is most definitely better equipment that can be had for the same price. There is no rule that also says that you must match your equipment together by brand to ensure that it works properly either. Matter of fact, some of the best systems out there are the mix and match ones, hand picked for the application. What if that one peice of Infinity gear will only work to 50% of it's abilities in your system, doesn't sound like it would be that hot of a choice now does it?

You need control of your system. Instead of a basic LOC, I would use a Audio Control 6XS, it is a advanced LOC, line driver, crossover and subwoofer level controller all in one. Want some more info on your system, drop me a PM if you are interested.

Thanks for your replies and input.

The Audio Control 6XS is 6-channel, so does that mean both the amps would be connected through this thing??

Am I going to require capacitors??

I have the wiring of the system somewhat in my head right now, but not exactly sure if its done like that, should I just say what I think and get you guys to correct me??

Again, I like experimenting and getting my hands a lil dirty because I think thats the best way to learn. And ofcourse, reading this forum too.

Thanks Again

The 6XS will take either a 2, 4 or 6 channel input and then give you front / rear and subwoofer preouts. It also comes with a dash mounted subwoofer level control. Both amps would be connected to this unit. It is the proper interface between a factory head and the aftermarket system that you are after.

As far as a cap goes, take the wait and see approach. Make the system as electrically efficient as you can by using proper gauge wire on the power and ground circuits for the needs of the system. Do a search for the big 3 as this will be beneficial to you.

If you can add me to MSN, [email protected] as it is far easier to converse there on the build of your system and wiring.
