Eh, hopefully it will sound ok. I mainly went class D for efficiency (read: less heat in cab, less strain on alternator), size and cost- I would have done class AB otherwise. I wanted to get this guy:

but I couldnt come up with a mounting location I liked. Well see how digital sounds

Since you have 2 of those Pioneers, do you notice any boominess due to the small box size? Usually .35 is a bit small for a 10, and its been my experience with other people's stereos that a box too small causes the sub to boom at about 65hz and up..

The boxes and iB subs are made to work well with one another. I am currently running only 1 with only 150 rms lowpassed at 80 hz and it blurs all mirrors. Clean bass from Pioneer head and Alpine class AB. I was running both with a 800 rms MTX class D mono. Had my 4 ch alpine on all 4 doors. Had both also lowpassed at 80 hz. I listen to rock, hard rock, metal mostly. Had to keep the sub control turned down to 0. It is -6 to +6. With the single and only 150 rms, sub control is kept on +5. Boominess might be from playing loud rap or hiphop with a sealed box. Need ported for that shiz.

Thanks. It's a headache sometimes, but the quality is impeccable. Going from iPhone and $100 pioneer to CDs and this guy... Wow. I'm hoping to pick up a couple of old school JBL amps to run a two way active front stage before too long. Definitely a work in progress. Box and false floor should be ready for paint tonight.

You could get the ai-net cord and a rca to headphone jack adapter have an aux input.

Thats how i listened to my external satellite radio with my old alpine HU.

I will be getting one of those. I'm worried about the drop in SQ. I by no means have a competition system, but I could tell the dramatic difference between the two HUs, so I don't want the same thing to happen in reverse because of the file type and way it's processed. I just need to look into more of that so that I get the best sound when doing it.

Anyhow, my wife and I(along with a few friends) spent about 3 hours on the box and faux floor. Fun stuff:

That's my conundrum, I have 2 small kids who ride with me a lot. So I can't get rid of the back seats. I want some good factory replacements and may a small set of subs that will fit under the back seats

Well I'm in a state of emergency. I need to add cooling fans to my amp. Was playing heavy bass for a few hours and the amp was burning hot.
