For 65000, you could surely have got better equipment instead of what you have and it would sound much better too. Anyways I hope you are happy with the sound.

What wires/RCA cables did you use?
But then The Alpine 240 is a clean SQ amp. It is meant to drive 4 full-range speakers which it does beter than the Pioneer 6100F or even the JBL GTO 75.4 which are more SPL oriented

Now that my setup is nearly complete, here goes :-

Car: M800

1. what is your existing setup (HEADUNITS, SPEAKERS, AMPS, DSP,SW etc.)

HU - Sony CDX-S22S
Rear Speakers - Kenwood 6x9s 75W RMS
Dash Mounted Tweeters - Pioneer (OE)
Sub - JBL GTO1000b(Passive)
Amp - Sony 554Z - 4 channel amp


2. How much did it cost ?

Bought the system in two parts. Head unit+rear speakers+tweeter = 12 K
Sub+Amp = 14K. Effective cost is 26K + 1600 for wiring kit = almost 28K

3.How serious were your about your system?

Fairly seriuios.

4. which kind of music do you listen to ?? prefer deep bass or how is it...

Rock - Classic/metal/alternative
Lounge Music...esp the Buddha Bar series.
Instrumental

Prefer my Bass to be punchy

5. would you recommend it to others???

Currently the setup is on a M800. I does sometimes overwhelm the car. But, if you are planning on a bigger car, definitely yes. Only add front speakers, get rid of the tweeter, and run the rears from the HU. This should drive cost up to abt 32 K.
