Default Finally Getting my Swift Iced Again!!!

Gurus,

Finally i am again back to ICE dayz. Its my third ICE in 35 years

Present Equipment
JVC-AVX44
Kenwood 8401
pioneer P7200M Mono amplifier
Hertz dsk 165
GZ RW30SPL woofer in a ported box
Wiring Tsunami and Kicker

Guys first about the things i have.
I have not heard much about JVC SQ but what i feel is that its a nice enough HU the best thing i like about it is that it is able to Play WAV files from USB HDD without any problems and gives good SQ due to the quality of files.not many HU's can do that.

Kenwood amp. Its a decent amp with decent output and was alright for DSK 165

Pioneer Amplifier provided me with decent power~300RMS which was Just driving the powerful woofer which i plan to change later on as i would be going complete SQ rather than SPL

The woofer can easily shudder swift if given enough power Period.

New Equipment
Pioneer P800PRS
PPI 356CS components + Peerless 6.5 Midbass drivers
Clarion DPX 11551 Amplifier
Still Searching for good 2/4 channel Amp
New RCA and 0 Gauge power cables.

I need help on how to get the best out of the combination of the above stated equipment

Thanks in Advance

Based on what I have read elsewhere on the net, you have finalised on some real quality equipment. Waiting to see what your choice of a 2 channel or 4 channel amp is going to be. Have you considered DLS or Genesis?

I am thinking about DLS but genesis is way above my budget brother. Also trying to get a Massive Audio CA50.4 Used from US if possible. Lets see what i can get.

What kind of budget you looking at?
I think you could land a few deals online and have it brought down through a friend?

Congrats Piyush. So far so good. Good choice of equipment.

How is the 30SPL treating you. Hope you are taking good care of my beauty

So you are retaining the Sub as of now? or changing to something else?

Thanks Buddy. They are nice woofers.I certainly am taking good care of them. Still just getting 300wrms from my Amp. Let me hook them on to Clarion and then i will see. I am more of a SQ+SPL kind of person so there would be mix and match.I want to keep them otherwise i would move to IDQ or IDMAX
