I'm piecing together the system for my TBSS and I came across a deal that might be too good to pass up.

I already got a smokin' deal on an new Alpine IVAW200 from a friend. Talking to the shop that'll be doing the install they offered to give me an Alpine PLT5 LAT sub system for just under $400 (retails around $600)

Here it is on Crutchfield: http://www.crutchfield.com/S-kKvl0OGJF0s/cgi-bin/ProdView.asp?g=51000&I=500PLT5&search=Alpine+VENDORID500&SearchDisplay=Alpine

My delima is this... I have no clue how these things sound, but the reviews I'm seeing online are good for trucks, mixed for mid-small SUV's, and bad for big SUV's. Anyone know anything about these. Keep in mind I'm not a big sloppy bass fan... I like my bass tight and crsip.

The alternative is reinstalling my Boston Reference stuff from the SSS, but this time I think I'll just run a single 10 in a custom fiberglass box, molded into the floor compartment of the rear cargo area. (BTW: they're GT510 DVC 10's and I'll be powering it with a Boston GT28 amp)

If I go the alpine route I can sell the Boston stuff off b/c I won't need it.

Opinions.

I'd go ahead and keep the boston acoustic stuff.

Also, you know the IVA-W205 is coming out in May right? It has an integration for the blackbird navigation.

the smaller the area the better the bass with those. They say reg cab and ex cab trucks sound great with them, but I wouldnt chance a midsized SUV

Eh... no need for the blackbird... IF I ever decided to add nav I'd just get the full integrated unit, but I really have no need for it now. Other than that I haven't heard it has any benefits over the 200... plus for the price I'm paying you can't beat it.
