I know West_spec is going to come into this thread soon... haha...

Alright, I am currently slowly going into improving the car sound system.

Did my speakers at AutoX and can really feel the difference. Now I know why people are slowly addicted to ICE.

 

Ppl here who are into ICE, care to share what are the recommended 2 Din HU and Amplifier? That should be my next upgrade... :D

a lot depends on how much you are willing to invest in total… $1k or $2k or $3k or $4k or more? a reasonably good sound quality entry level audio setup (passive, not active) could be achieved in the region of $2k :angel:

 

this is a good place to learn more about ICE poisoning.

http://www.sgsoundsystem.com/forum/index.php

there’s a section listing the recommended installers and also a section on buy-n-sell.

 

if you want a recommendation, i’ld say try Soundflux Car Audio located at Toh Guan Centre (sharing the same unit as V-Kool). look for Fredrick at hp97813868, tell him your budget and what you have in mind. his prices are competitive and workmanship is good.

 

 

if only going for audio, one of the most popular and $$ for value set could be the Pioneer FH-P6050UB.

http://www.pioneer.com.sg/storefront2/productList/default.asp?CatalogId=34&Page=1

 

if going for audio/video, one of the most popular and $$ for value set could be the JVC KW-AVX726U.

http://www.jvc-asia.com/sg/product_car_avc_x726.htm

there’s a cheaper KW-AVX726U but somehow not most pp prefer to top up a little.

http://www.jvc-asia.com/sg/product_car_avc_x626.htm

 

 

as for amps, there’re a hell lot to choose from… from the cheap low-end sets costing

some popular brands are Audison, Rockford Fosgate, Infinity, Focal, Soundstream, Kicker, etc. note that different brands has different characteristics.

check out http://www.sgsoundsystem.com/forum/index.php for more info.

 

 

so what i have?

my entry level audio only passive setup costs about $2k (gotta stop here cos its a bottomless pit); comprising of a single-din head unit Alpine CDA9886, Infinity REF475A 4-channel amp, FS Moving Air Clarity Mk II component speakers, FS Moving Air 10" e2 Cube Subs, DB audio interconnects and speaker cables, 4 doors & wheel arch sound dampening, pivot voltage stabiliser, etc.

 

 

:goodluck:

base on ur Headunit i suppose if u add a Imprint PXA-H100 n some rewiring of wire layout u gain the advantage of going active and do all the TA n EQ. While u should have read up alot in e sgsoundsystem forum u would have noe the pros n cons btw active n passive setup :) happy icing:cheers:

Before you start to dump money into ICE, ask yourself a few question.

 

Which way you are going towards???

 

Sound Quality(SQ) or Sound pressure Level(SPL)

Which kind of song you listen to.

How deep your pocket is:angel:

 

I myself is playing toward sound quality which we try to re-create the sound recording into our small little car.

SPL, which most ah beng like.... BOom Boom Boom.....But their is nth compare with those real player using 15" paper subwoofer.

 

My ex-system is as follow......

Head Unit : DEX-P9

Processer : DEQ-P9

Amp 1 : DLS A4

Front 2 way : DLS UP6

Sub Amp : Genesis Dual mono

Sub-woofer : Rockford fosgate P2

well take ur time bro work hard to achieve ur hobby/interest.. Put ur important priority come 1st.

 

i used to own a few Sony reasonable cheap earphones back in the early days when i was still a teenage. I got this Audio Technica ATH-CK7 Titanium Earphone abt a few years back as i seldom use it till now it still serve me well when i hook it up to listen to music.

http://www.drumza.com/images/AudioTechnicaATHCK7TitaniumEarphones.jpg

 

As for recent i got a Philips wireless headphones SHC2000 for my parent for watching TV in the late nites.. but they complain its heavy therefore bought a Sennheiser HD 437 Headphone which indeed is lighter.

hahahhaa...bro... think your current setup is not bad liao.... ....:)

 

think u could had brought the 9887 rather than the 86 as got more functions to play with :)

 

personally i prefer the older sets like 9853/9855 and best was 9560 which boost 60 watts... and 20/22 rms... but damn difficult to find one nowadays...

did consider 9887 (got promo on at that time) but decided not coz it doesn't have USB input for some lower quality but very convenient music... my 4GB thumb drive can store lots of songs at 320kbps :p
