So what type of music you are on to and how loud do you like it. For the inside or the outside also. (just joking)

Dear Maverick,

Have a heart; Give the system away with the car. I generally do.
That way you can play with new gear and experiment with installation etc.

If you paid 3 K for an Alpine Amp - it had to be fake. Most of the gear there is 4 to 5 years old. You have used it and enjoyed, now charge 10 K for for the car and sell it with the gear in it.
Start with a fresh slate.
Shall suggest soon.

We all start with a sony / jvc / pioneer then move to jbl & then move on ahead.
If we cling on to what we had in our cars, then our audio [ICE] graph will never progress. We will use the same gear in all our cars.
That is not desired.
Sell a car, sell the gear with it.
Buy a new car, install new ICE in it.
Simple.
That is my rule of life !!!

p.s. the problem is when I sell my current crop of cars, what will I replace the Stegs with ???
Brax ? Maybe I shall have to eat my words....
I should keep quiet.

IMHO you should keep the HU, Sub and the Amp

There is no problem if the Amp is fake but it does work with the Sub well.

The only thing you have to get is Speakers, Amp (for the speakers) and Wiring..

Don't worry, as LBM suggested the Masterstrokes will be available.

PS: I would be glad to buy your cars with the ICE in them, give me the first preference please.

Ya it is a good sub. But to go loud you would need another one also.

Maverick keep the SUB and HU and get JBL 607C. You can get the for 5K with B/W. Or if you wanna go high there are other brands like Hertz, Infinity, Illusion, Rainbow, Bull Audio, DLS, Hifonics etc etc. I would say try Rainbow SLX 265 components. They retail at 10K and are kick bass .

keep aside around 10 for damping front 2 doors and Wiring and rest 10K get a good 4channel amp and you are ready to BOOM the Chandigarh style with better SQ cheers:

P.S. By any chance you play Counter Strike online ?
