Got the new Stereo installed today on my wife's car.

Got a pair of Hertz ECX 165 speakers for the front, a pair of Treo RSX speakers for the back, a Pioneer 5100 CD Deck, a Zapco i-450 Amplifier, and an Image Dynamics 12" subwoofer.

Everything sounds pretty darn good. The amp is powering the front two 6.5" Hertz speakers and the sub in the trunk. Rear speakers are powered from the CD deck.

At loud level the Bass sounds very tight and smooth. At normal listen levels with the sub turned down a bit everything blends together really nicely. The front speakers are very detailed, but have some sibilance at higher volumes. Overall I am very pleased.

Congratulations on the EP800-killing sound system. Seriously, any new audio purchases are fun. Keep treating your wife right. \:\)

Oh, yeah, thanks. By the way, I'm going to respond to each and every birthday well-wishing in order to stay ahead of Jay.

Ha ha, talk about painting a target on yourself in this forum. I should buy one just to make everyone laugh at me.

So I have been finding myself making excuses to go drive my wife's car around. A little while ago I was testing out some new music from my ipod on her car stereo and noticed she was low on gas. Being the nice husband that I am I drove up to the gas station to fill it up... listening to some of John Mayer's new CD "Battle Studies" on the way ;\) . Man these speakers are impressive with amazing clarity and detail... I'm Jealous!
