D22 navara system, recommend me stuff
Posted 21 February 2012 - 02:15 PM
Been a while since I've really looked into this stuff so I'm not sure where to begin.
I guess to start with I should talk about the car. It's a brand new d22 navara dual cab ute. It has a Bluetooth/USB double din hu with phone connection, so I'm not keen on changing it. It works well and I like it just want some better sound as it's only got 2 front speakers.
So what I've worked out so far:
Going to need some sort of speaker to RCA convertor, which one?
The Slimest 12 inch sub available as I've got little room behind the backseat, not fussed about box as I can make my own
4 x6 inch 3 or 4 way speakers, one pair can be normal depth for the front but if I can get some good shallow speakers for the rear doors that would be good.
2 amps, prolly a 4 channel to suit the speakers and 2 channel bridged for the sub.
So I roughly want to spend 1200-1500 including the convertor and cabling.

I can't give you any recommendations on a speaker to RCA converter, aka Line Out Converter (L.O.C.) as I haven't used one before.
As far as shallow mount subs go, the Pioneer TS-SW3001S2 is a popular choice.
Speakers are a personal preference. Listen to as many as you can and choose the pair that you like the sound of most. There are alot of decent options above the $300 mark. Focal, Crescendo, Boston Acoustics, etc, etc. Have a read of this- http://www.mobileele...view_under_600/
I personally wouldn't bother with new speakers in the rear doors, the ones in the front are the ones you want to hear.
Forgoing the rear speakers means you could get away with a 3ch or 4ch amplifier. Something like a JL Audio 300/4, Arc Audio KS300.4
Is there any reason for wanting a 2 channel to power the sub? If you wanted 2 amps a mono would be better suited to drive your substage. With your budget Id stick to a 4channel and bridge 2 channels for the sub.
Arguably(?), the most important part is to have it installed correctly. Dynamat the front doors and mount your speakers on MDF speaker rings.

Thanks for your reply.
The reason for rear speakers is there arnt any from factory so it needs something for rear fill.
I know that splits are the way to go but something I didn't mention was the dust factor over time. Being out in the country the ute will get dust in it and I was more thinking that Coaxials would be better over time.
I've seen alot of people have used that pioneer sub so it must be reasonable.
No real reason for a 2 channel and a 4 channel just options I guess.

Yeah it does have a fadar, it's the same headunit Nissan use in the d40 navara and it has rear speakers.
