Congrats
I like the sub stage.
No damping? That should have been recommended for the accent as the door pads will rattle @ higher volumes.

You should think of exchanging the Sound Barrier amp for something much better.
Who suggested you this entire configuration by the way??

Congrats, an awesome set up for an Accent.

Since Accent insulation is not the best. Did you get any dampening done? Doesn't your rear number plate knock when the bass increases?

Despite damping in my car the rear number plate use to make a lot of sound. So i dumped the number plate and got a "look-alike" sticker

Pricing of all components would be nice.

Thirdly, and IMHO, IDQ and RF Mono deserve better source unit + components.

@ Frank,
yes a change is most certainly around the corner either a kenwood 2 channel or another RF. Its due to lack of M factor that i have postponed the damping for next month

@greenhorn,
Will get the damping done next month

certainly they deserve better source units and comps. and i have already ordered the comps(ID CTX 65cs) which I will be getting around Dec so till then using BULL audio

@mobike008,
The number plate does rattle and will get all the damping done in a couple of weeks time

Congrats Sound Affects on your install. iDQ is a very nice subwoofer. I would suggest you to change your Sound Barrier Amp with Kenny or Rockford, I have auditioned both the amps, not much of a sound difference. If you want more power then go for Rockford else Kenny is more than enough.

For how much you are getting the iD CTX?
