the car really isn't that fast though. maybe all of those at once will make a noticable difference, but not a whole lot none the less. how much is the stock HP in the car?

I love JL. Im buying two more of their 12W1v2's... And a Hifonics Zeus Amp.

Alpine is great.. I have their 9865 deck. But both JL and Alpine are middle of the road brands. Things like Mag, Assassians, Fi, XXX, Focal and others are the high road.

Though with Alpines Type R, its an spl sub and my W1v2 is a sq sub.
