Newbie needs help.....

Hi guys,

I'm new to this board and also car audio. Recently, I have purchased a 1992 Nissan Primera TE and am making it into a showcar/sounds car for next year's New Zealand South Island Champs and maybe even the Nationals. I have made alot of mods on the car so far and have just finished the exterior of the car which basically has everything you can imagine: Aerotech bodykit, RPS exhaust system, 16" MAK Spirit alloys, Lowered kings springs, Neon lights (coming soon). Now I am looking at the interior of the car and first off, it would be the sound system before a custom interior job. What I am wanting to know is what I need for a good sound system that could impress some people but be under a budget of say $2000NZ. I would love it if you guys could explain in detail what I would need and some ideas especially for a showcar as I don't have a very good imagination, what the best brands are to buy for quality, etc. I would really appreciate it. Thanks guys.

- Dan

ok. dunno how much stuff costs in NZ, but i'm going to tell you that if you're planning to impress someone...let alone ppl at a car show, you're going to be needing a little more money than that....unless of course you're going to be doing all of this yourself. =)

but for show purposes, try to stay consistent with parts. you can go all alpine, or all JL audio. judges like that. they liked my car. =)

OR..go with flashy stuff. LEDs and neons are always the best way to get kudos. pheonix gold amps have a nice looking format with LEDs. eclipes subs have a nice look and sound good as well. if you're strickly looking for good bass, you might want to look into JL, they got the punch.

maybe high end might impress a judge. then go with persion power. they're known for the best amps, though they're ugly....in my opinion. not much going on. hehehe.

something cool and clean. amps on the side, and mount a sub in a box facing out. it'll look real clean. or do a fiberglass kit and mount the sub in the wheelwell. that's always nice, and it sounds good too. always cool to channel the bass by cutting a hole in the back dash between the two rear speakers.

ok. those are MY ideas. hehehe.

check out my system in this forum. i believe the post is labeled "new system"
