I think I have decided on what I want to go with. Now it's time to start collecting this stuff :shock: I've already got the A100.2 :lol:

This will be going in my 2005 Toyota Tacoma XRunner

I thought the DCX2496 was more than a 3 way crossover :?:

So I take it this won't work?

If all else fails I might be able to run the subs off the computers sound card.

NPDANG, how would I go about doing this?

It is alot of things, but it only has 6 pairs of outputs :)

For the subwoofer I generally just use the headunit as a crossover/eq, or you could use your amp's processing as well. Alot of options really. You could even buy 2 of the dcx2496 units and still cost you only $500 for an 8 way setup verus $600+ for the h701 alone.

sweet setup... how much is it all running you?
Well depends on how much I get the amps for and the computer. On the computer I hope not to spend over 500-600. The screen is another 400-500.
For everything including all the wiring, sound proofing and deadener probably around 4k. Then I still gotta get an enclosure/amp rack built.

:shock:

Nice setup! It's going to be expensive :) to buy all that stuff, at once!

Good luck

Hope you get some good deals!

Thanks,

I wish I could buy it all at once :D

But it's going to take a while to have everything. :?

I guess it would be best to use a headunit as well. Would be good to have if the computer crashes or dies.

Probably get a deh-p860mp.

if youre taking about the Vifa PL's then they will own those things!! well..i didnt have much experience with the PL's because i gave them away after about ~3 hours of play time.. although ive only had about ~3 hours of play time on these mids too, i really like them.. theyre seem very linear and accurate (for a car) and good output too!

As in another thread, two DCX unints are the way to go for a four way system, mine are on the way here now.

PC based, two DCX units, LCY ribbons, Lotus Ref mids and midbasses, Arc 15 sub, two 4150 and one 1500 amp.

Seems alot of great systems on this site:):):)
