So who has the most watts in their system?

I am running 1000 watts, 600 to my 2 10" JL subs and 400 watts to the cabin speakers. And these are rms watts.

I'll be running 1400rms to mine next week. Definitely not the most on this site though lol.

1000w to my single 12" in a ported box and 400w to my Focal PS165 speakers, front and back.

This is funny because my Camaro is at the Stereo shop as I write this. I had the Scosche kit put in with a Pioneer AVH-P8400BH head unit. I went with a ARC amp and Focal speakers all around. I had got the sub box from the Chevy site with 2 10" MTX subs and it is great but my buddy just opened a stereo shop here in Pittsburgh and talked me into putting 2 ARC Black 12" subs with another ARC amp to run them. I'm not sure exactly how much power I will be running yet but he assures me it will be kick ass. I will be taking offers on the MTX 10" sub box I bought from Chevy for $1100.00. It has a amp built into it and hooks right up to the stock Camaro stereo. Like I said it sounded great and if your looking to add some bass and boost your stock stereo up without a bunch of work and money then it is perfect. Again I'm taken offers and it will be available the middle of this week when I pick my Camaro up. PM me if interested..

Running 1150 watts on one Audison 5.1k amp. Just enough power to run all of our Hertz speakers and subs.

Nice looking install there!


Right now I have 3400 watts.

I used to compete in SPL with another car and the most it ever had was 54,000 watts.

that was my old trailblazer

i don't see going nuts with car audio as being a cool thing anymore - there's always someone better, louder, etc. i love bass and plan on adding subs to my camaro, but nothing crazy that would require aftermarket alternators or multiple batteries to sustain power without clipping, cutting out/bottoming out etc

1-3k is sufficient for cars when it comes to subs. a proper install with GOOD subs @ 2 or 3kw power? you'll be street beating all day...4kw or above is overkill, there is not that much airspace in cars to make use of such power. when you move up to SUV's you have more airspace thus more room for the subs to perform.

i'd like to get a nice setup with Focal/Image Dynamics speakers, deaden the car and throw in 2 RE 12's. RE performs AND sounds good, hard to find with today's brands...albeit they are expensive. i ran 2 RE SX 12's and they hit HARD, the XXX is a monster but @ 1200 a sub....not interested anymore! lol

2 10's or 2 12's in the camaro are plenty...anything more is again overkill.

He is one of the Top 100 installers in the US and was on overhauling. I happen to know him so got a better deal the average person. But, building a false floor, all the dyno matting, installing my Hertz tweets, Hertz doors, Hertz rear speakers was a lot of work. He normally charges about 100 dollars an hour. With equipment about 8k. Hertz and Audison are not a cheap solution though.

And, for those that have not seen it 100% full European leather and Alcantara covering up the system.

I have a vid of my install playing...unfortunately it sounds horrid the bass distorts the sound so bad. Yeah it doe sound crazy. I mean to be honest i cant sit in the car with it at full tilt. The sound literally made my contact lens fly off one day. My rear view mirror has broken off the windshield. i keep having to glue it on. My greatest issue is the cieling vibrating so bad, espeically in the front window area. i will try to post pics soon.

my install uses 100% ostrich black leather around the entire front and rear. My car will be in competition soon so i cant show full pics..here are 2 to give impressions. Price for leather alone was in the upper hundreds, lab created custom box was 1 k, amps are about 2.5 k , subs are 1400, mids are about 800, custom deck, dyno mat install, labor hrs, wiring, dry cell batts, custom built alternator and we are talking serious chaching ...i would say realistically this ran me about 12k with custom head unit, alpine kit, cameras, custom carbon fiber enclousres and leds up the wazoo. But when I pass thru the street, jeeps move out my way

I'm running two 12" dc audio lv4s in in my vert running off of a Rockford 2500 amp. It puts out 3200 watts. I made 2 boxes that fit just under the top when it's down. Plus I made a sealed chamber for a kicker comp vx 10" in the stock sub location and it runs off a 1000 watt amp. A also added a dc power 275 amp alt and two xs power batteries. The mids and highs play off a 150 watt 4ch amp. I can feel the bass even with the top down. So total of 4800 watts. Got about $4600 in it.

Oh and i wanted to add, as I am sure the old timers on audio would agree....watts is just one factor in a system. Tuning that system, the materials used, port config, volumes, I mean so many things make a difference. i seen guys with 800 watts destroy system with 4x more power. Its all about the products coming together in unison. Just like building a good motor.

If it came down to watts I would lose to some of you all.. If it came down to sound quality.. Todd @TCAudio would be my only competitor. :-) And his install makes mine look like rookie business..
