Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Okay, so, the car that I had about 5 years ago was an Olds Cutlass Ciera. Big boat of a car, but it was affordable and in good condition. But the stereo had to go.
So in it I had a Sony XPlode 200w deck with cheap little Sony 3" in the dash and some absolutely fucking amazing Alpine 6x9s in the back (Can't remember the model, sorry). I had a 300w amp with a pair of 12" subs for a while but I sold the amp/subs when I went to school. Even after the subs were gone those 6x9s cranked alot of bass. It was beautiful.
But then I sold the Olds and the stereo with it.
So now I have a 91 Mustang. Back in June I ordered a new stereo from Crutchfield. I live in Canada which means I have 0 warranty coverage (As Crutchfield only sells American retail) but I took the risk because the exchange rate had just really changed in Canada's favor and it was way cheaper to order and ship than buy local.
2 days before the stereo arrived I got into an accident.
ich bin enttÃ¤uscht, total enttÃ¤uscht.
(I am disappointed)
The speakers distort on heavy bass, or when I turn it up. I have to turn the LOUD boost off and even with the EQ modified for max bass it sounds...weak. So, my question, does Pioneer have a crappy bass engine and I need a new deck or are those Alpine speakers not up to snuff? I have no easy way to test.
I'm tempted to just buy a Sony deck again and cut the hell out of my car to fit 6x9s. In fact, I may do that anyway. But for those of you that have experience with this stuff, is the problem in my deck or my speakers?
