I hope sunglasses are also included in that purchase with all that chrome in there. If you are interested in eye candy, you certainly have found it. If you are interested in good reliable product, you most certainly have not. As a dealer of the line, it is the worst pile of garbage I have ever had come through my doors, followed closely by Astra alarms (Scytek).

Yeah i was really wanting a system that would look great as well as sound great. My friend had 2 12'' audiobahn woofers (not sure what model) and they sounded very nice, but i think they eventually siezed up on him. Can you suggest a system with similar size/power and good looks? 3 subs, 2-3 amps, 4-6 mid ranges, 2 tweets

lol, no Audiobahn sounds like **** to be honsest. My buddy had 2 Audiobahn subs and my 2004 Alpine Type R's at the time put his subs in it's place. Go buy a pair of cheap infinity subs they'll sound 100x better and they're 50x cheaper than audiocrap, I gaurantee it.

Also please don't use "Sounded very nice" and "Audiobahn" in the same sentence....

must agree with all of you,I have a sound Q from audiobahn and im really not impress with the "Q".Also audiobahn amps are pieces of junk,bling bling is good for XZIBIT H2 but when you need a reliable system look elsewhere.

Anything can be made to look good.

Why not go with 3 alpine type r's (always a solid sub, decent SQ, gets fairly loud - 3 would definitley get loud) with a pair of mrd 1005 amps....?

those amps are proabbly a lil more on the expensive side, but moral of the story is you have tons of options. Anything can be made to look good or not even be seen, depends on the install.

If you wanna be different, grab something not so well known....to every day kids in the big cities....maybe a pair of brahma's or similar (they've impressed me so far) ? a pair of those could ge rather loud.

Thanks for all the help guys. I like the pricing and the simple look with the type R's. I think instead of getting an electric blue color onthe car, i will go with a red or black. If i go black i'll prolly do all red interior fiberglass.

Any suggestions on LCD screens? Is it audiovox that makes the headrests with the built in screen that look stock? I dont need any audio on the screens. Looking at 2 headrests and 1 on the dash and one IN the dash. Any suggestions?
