    Alright, so I recently picked up a clean low mile LBZ with a bose system. Plan on either running 2 8s or a single 10 ported behind rear seat and new HU for sure. I have 2 SA8s laying around but I would have to move seat forward somehow to fit. I mainly cant decide on speakers... Is it worth swapping out bose speakers with an aftermarket 4 channel with some front components with rear coaxials? If so any recommendations? I dont think the factory bose sounds terrible, but then agian the best speakers ive ever owned are alpine type S.. Not looking for any crazy SPL numbers, just a decent SQ system thats not hurting the wallet too much

    a subthump box might work for you then....the sd3 magnet is pretty big so Id check with them first. no way the sa8 fits and that belongs in a ported box too...would have to be custom.

    I plan on building my own ported box for sure.. have built my past like 10 boxes just using torres and they've always sounded good to me.. if I use sa8s I would have to move seat forward 1.5" or so just dunno if it's worth it

    that's about perfect is that a single 10? So what does it consist of just drilling new holes 1.5" forward?

    SD3 10 is absolutely the best thing you could do. Now for the rest, http://www.emfcaraudio.com/sundown-audio-sae-1100-5-5-channel-amplifier/ 1 amp to power them all, and for the door speakers that depends if you want to do coax's or components.

    Ended up ordering Polk db components for front and coaxials for rear. Think the sd3 is the best bet even with less surface area vs 2 8s? That amp would be perfect but I already had some laying around I'll probably just use

    In terms of sound quality you'll be better off with the SD3. You also don't run the risk of the surround rubbing the seat because of the inverted surround on the SD3. SD3 is also shallower and has no pole vent to consider. 2 SA8's ported would be louder for sure, but quality wise, SD3 is where it's at.

    Ok thanks! I'll most likely be ordering one this week sometime. What would you recommend for a headunit? Either thinkin Sony xav-ax100, alpine ilx-107, or jbl cp100 if it ever comes out. I also have an iPad mini and was thinking of maybe getting the soundman slider kit instead

    I wouldn't recommend anything Sony, should be good on the Alpine.
