At first I was going to stick to a very mild stereo in my '92 5.0 Its kind of a fast car, so I didn't want to weigh it down with tons of subs, MDF and crap. Its been a while since I did a real custom install and I'm kind of itching to do it again. Real bad. And I think I can go all out, but keep it light weight. I want to hear y'alls opinions Are 20V/24V surge capacitors really necessary? I remember people saying that with the standard 16/20 caps you might get in trouble if the voltage spikes higher than that and thats why you need a 20/24. Is that a bunch of BS or what? I'm trying to find some caps on Ebay and 95% are the 16/20 kind. The only caps I've ever owned have been the nice ones, but I'm trying to save some money. Has anyone here put L-pads on their rear fill speakers? I don't have any question about install...I was just curious if you were pleased with the result. I'm going to be running a single JL Audio 12W3 with a Fosgate Punch 200ix. 5.25 component set up front and 6x8's in the rear with probably a Fosgate 240x4. One of my old installer buddies suggested 6.5 inch midbass drivers in the doors and the component set in some kick panels. Does this sound like a good idea? A good match for the 12? If so, at what frequency should I cut the sub and bring in the midbass? What frequency should I cut from the midbass to the midrange? Keep in mind these aren't really steep slopes...12dB per octave. I think thats it for now. I'm sure I'll have more questions later. Thanks for the input. And hey Greg...do you have any signal processors/EQ's in your truck? I forget. I just bought an Audiocontrol EQL for the 'stang. I was going to snag a pair of EQT's...which I've dreamed about forever...but since I won't be competing I don't want to spend 3 days setting the levels.
