In the future I am planning on getting a corvette or some sort of other vehicle that will have a loud exhaust. I was planning ahead to see what components to buy. Being that the vehicle I buy exhausts system will be very loud. I would like to know what type of components to be looking into buying for the car. I was looking into the dynaudio esotec line but it might not be worth the money since the exhaust system will be so loud. So then comes to my mind the pioneer premier 720prs set. I am just throwing up some components. But what I want to really know is ppl who have loud exhausts what do you use and how does it affect your system?

I would think sound proofing and deadening would be thrown into the consideration of comp choice.

I would think less internet warrioring and more working on the car would be an even better choice.

And don't freakin bump a thread 8Hrs after you posted it especially when its what ****ing components should I get? When its been asked a million times, and answered the same!!!!!!!!!!!

Slow down. You aren't even done with your $20k "competition" system in your corolla and now you're thinking about a corvette and a completely different install.

Yes I am right now on the corolla. I am in a stand still on some things like I cant finish some of the sound deadener cause I drive the car for school and work and time has been short for me lately. I am still waiting on my A-Pillars to come back. So I really cant do to much until I get my A-pillars back.

Spend less time posting threads (especially speculative threads about cars you don't currently own) and go work on your car. Sound like you've got a pretty ****ed up subwoofer situation. Step away from the internet and go solve that issue.
Yea I am going to be building a new front piece from a old box I have had made a while back and trim it down some to make it to right spec. I am still convinced it is the box and not the sub which is still no biggie got warranty. I will find out soon when I test the 2 used subs vs the 1 new sub.

I know how to tune what implies to you I dont know how to? Just cause I ask some odd dumb questions doesnt mean I dont know how to tune by ear. It's hard for me to understand everything ppl write b/c my english voc. and lit. is not that good.

Again waiting on other things to come back and some free time to work on car. I have all my components for my car (Except 2nd hu) I am just merely needing the time (Day time) to work on it.

Sry about the thread bump I though no one saw it.

I would run the exhaust out the back, deaden the trunk area/etc, and put in what you normally would. It should not be an issue unless you have side pipes or half exhaust under the car. If you do that, then get something that goes louder.

I had cars like that, but with the exhaust out the rear it was not much of an issue in the car. I could run two 300rms amps and not hear the exhaust with the car wot and windows down.

if the exhaust bothers you, you might want to also get some less aggressive tires.... I hear those aggressive tires can be loud....no reason to have loud tires

also maybe changing out the steering to avoid vibration coming through the steering wheel....maybe get a recirculating ball instead of rack and pinion to isolate you from the road.

the nice thing is the aerodynamics will probably cut down on the wind noise, just don't get a convertible or take off the targa

Just wrap the exhaust with Dynamat Xtreme, similar to how you deadened your taillights.

If the tires are too noisy, deaden those too.

If you get a recirculating ball, make sure you deaden that.

Convertibles are okay for SQ, as long as you deaden the top.

I used to have a '89 Vette. Had headers and a Borla exhaust routed out the back. Just did 6.5" and 1" in each door and a pair of Kicker 12's in the hatch w/Dynamat all around. A PPI A404 on the mids/tweets and an A600 on the 12's and it was plenty loud even w/the targa off. Can't say it did much for my quarter mile times, but it was fun!

LOL I think 99% is your attitude about tuning. Lets be honest you know the difference between a woofer/Tweeter/ and midrange(maybe), but have no idea how to tune them. There is nothing wrong with not knowing how, hell even a few big guns have someone else tune their cars just to get a fresh set of ears in on the action. It is your attitude of "I know all and you can not tell me other wise because I spent big money$$$$ on my equipment and car" That is funny. Not Funny Haha, but funny Ghey. That sir is were you are ****ing up. Hell questions are great. That is how you learn, and guess what there is nothing wrong with admitting that you haven't a ****ing clue of how something is being explained......just admit to your ignorance and ask a question without tryting to then follow it up with you know how to tune......because that verys from speaker to speaker and set up to set up. We all came here to learn something, and a few even came here to reach out and teach.....so let the ones in the know do their job.

STOP.

Trunks_9-You need to evaluate what you are doing. You have spent a ton of money to build a comp car. You jumped in both feet first without testing the water. Guess what the water is cold and deep.

Most people even the comp. guys have spent years learning, started out small and gone through many systems by the time they get ready to try and pull off what you are trying to pull off.

Many of even the big names get help from many different friends.

Above goes with many of the guys on this and other forums.

I admire what you are trying to do but you need to really assess your skills and current knowledge.

I am not trying to put you down just giving you reality check.

To build a top level comp car these are things I have found you need.
Top level installer and wiring guru if you are not.
A way to test different/listen to drivers before making the final decision
A great tuner
A plan to accomplish the above
I have found its best to find a top installer that will let you help with the build and be involved in the every aspect.(This helps you accomplish the below statement)

For the car to be successful you yourself need to have a good knowledge of the build, speaker, design and car audio knowledge. No sense in having spent $20k if you cannot answer questions about your audio set-up or basic or advanced audio questions.


Remember the best answer if you really do not know the answer is "I don't know", then gain the knowledge or ask someone that does know. This will allow to answer the question if it asked again.

I have read about 99% of the threads you have started and build log stuff. It is clear you are learning as you go which is fine. However at the end and you have spent a **** ton of cash and it does not sound worth $20k you have a major problem. Which is ripe the entire or portions of the install out to try and fix the problem. That is why it is best to find the guys that build successful comp. cars and have them help. You have already spent the cash might as well spend a little more for the help.

I to tried to do what you are trying.

Now I am doing it the right way.

Money is the easy part if you have it.

Your correct there is alot I am still learning.
I have all the above though on which you have mentioned covered though.
My dealer is very knowledgeable in car audio will be tuning most of my system beside me and I will be there to listen as well.

I promise you I have listened to drivers and installs. They may have not all been in a car but I have definitely listened to different configurations with different components.

I have done a lot of research on trying to get what I wanted to buy for my system. I talk to my dealer about the stuff I get and what I should do for opinions on what to do on things.

Believe me there is alot of things I still dont know how to do. I get tons of help from ppl I guess I just dont show it.... Like right now I am down to trying to figure out about my main gnd on the chasis of the car then running a gnd distro block to everything. I still got a big amount of stuff to do but I do what ever I can by myself If I knew how to fiberglass and had tools as well as some more skill I would do everything myself and mess up as many times till I got it right. As far as tuning goes I am no perfect tuner. I still class myself as a novice but I do know what I am doing I might not be able to tune perfect but I know I can get most of it done right.

To everyone who thinks I might be cocky I am not. I am not trying to show that kinda of attitude and if I have shown that I am very sry. My intention has always been able to get help and not try to be the know it all cause I do know I dont. I know it may seem like I have alot of money but I really dont. I just save up and put other priorities aside right now till I finish this project.
