I've just done my research and come up with the following:
Alpine CDA 9835 headunit
Infinity Kappa 5.25" component speakers (front)
Infinity Kappa 5.25" coaxial speakers (rear)
Now all i have to do is figure out what amplifiers to use and i'll be set. Any advice would be appreciated here
On other matters, i got my car back from service (eek! $$$$) and it runs like the mean machine it should!
| I also need to add a second battery, as i will have the problem with large bass notes - i think the usual 1 farad capacitors are a waste of money and not nearly as effective as a massive capacitor such as a battery |
I need to know where the best place is to put this.

Thankyou for your quick reply I will go with the cap. I was told by an installer that they are a waste of money and i should put in a bigger battery ($500)... Obvioiusly not true with a bit of internet research - So a capacitor is most definately the better option both in cost and function
I'm definately set on buying the Infinity speakers. They are absolutely fantastic and will fit into my car no problemo!
However, i'm not an expert on car audio (yet) and i need a few things clarified:
Just on the amplifiers, i guess i will require a pair of those MRP-F240 amplifiers for two pairs of speakers? (one for front, one for rear).
Also, i need to figure out the best way to get the power cabling (and audio signal) from the front of the car and dash area to the boot. I will definately run the cable down the door sill area.. but how do i:
a) get it out of the dash and into there? (need to remove the dash?)
B) get the cables into the boot?
| Another question : |
How much cable will i need? It seems that i can either get 5 or 10 metre (17 or 35 feet) RCA cables and power kits... I dont want to get it too short, and not excessively long - especially for the RCA
Where is the best place to buy the Infinity speakers? i have checked out the bay but i can only find the "reference" models. I want Kappa!

do me a favor and make sure you fuse your cable within a couple of inches (less than 12") from the point that you tap into the 4ga. thats back there. this will protect your car from catching fire if something goes wrong with your cable/amplifier (i.e.: car wreck, pinched wire, amp dead shorts, there are a bunch more scenarios)
glad i could help, good luck to the rest of your install...
