Meh, as soon as my new car arrives, I will also change a few parts of the sound system.

Going to probably install a MP3 Sony/Kenwood radio, a sub (that is, if I can fit it in the trunk ) and probably, a few changes on the rest, and voilá... job done.

BTW, here's a few pics of Portuguese Car Audio stuff (As in, the big ones):




(206 = Car name. It's Peugout 206... thus, the 206 using that part )

...as you hit VTEC in every gear...in the Integra's almost useless sound-deadening stuff...

For now, I'm keeping my sound system stock. Don't spend enough time in the car to justify replacing working equipment.

I was really hooked a couple of years ago. I have 2 12" JL w3, JL500.1 amp, and infinity coaxs front and rear. I was wanting to go with an Adire sub, but no shop near me stocked them.
I'm curious, what kind of enclosure are you going to put your Brahma in? (size? type? making it yourself?).

Yep i'm going to be building it. sealed 1 cu/ft after displacment. More of a sql setup, but i have heard of good numbers with it. On the adire site they have a guy with a 12" brahma in a 1 cu/ft sealed hitting 140+, not to bad for one 12". Anyhow the amp i'm looking at is 750w @ 4ohm and 1500w @ 2ohm (Memphis 16-MC1500D) so i'm thiking i might just go with 2 12's. Also at some point i might build a ported box for them, so i can take it to a few shows.

2 12's ...O_O.... Ok I have a Eclipse HU, 2 10" JL W7's, 500 watt JL *just for the subs*,*everything else*300 watt JL, and boston pros all inside. That itself bumps hella hard.

2 12" IMHO is over kill for daily use, but if you plan on going to car shows or sound competitions I guess its alright. But if you really want power why not go with the 15" square Kickers? Those things will rattle your teeth out XD

Well the subs i'm looking at should put the kickers to shame.
Check out this small vid of a 10" brahma pounding.
