 Competition Grade?

Well, Ive been thinking for a while about doing a car audio competition. I put together a system that I believe would do ok was interested in the input of others. Here is what i've got: Vehicle: 2004 Honda Civic LX Sedan System: Front speakers - Alpine SXP-F17T (in kick panels and door) Rear speakers - Alpine SPX-177A Subwoofer(s) - 3 x Alpine SWR-1241D Power: 2 x Alpine MRV-T420 1 x Alpine MRD-M1000 Rockford Fosgate Type RF CPCC40 (a bit overkill) 2 x Optima Yellow top battery As far as an enclosure goes for my subs. I have a custom Plexiglas box made by Bobby Gately of Gately Audio (http://www.gatelyaudio.com/). As far as Dynamat goes I installed 2 Extreme Bulk packs myself. So is Alpine a good product for competition? Thoughts, Comments, Suggestions, Etc?

Sounds like a good setup. My only recommendation would be to lose the components in the rear, it'll only drag your soundstage to the back of the car which you don't want. I'd recommend you use the 2 MRVT420's and byamp the front components. You are looking for SQ system and not SPL right?

Im Actually looking for both. The 2004 Honda Civic EX has a tweeter mounted just inside the door next to the side mirrors. I thought either there or perhaps somewhere in the front would be the ideal place for the 2nd tweeter set and keep the mid bass speaker in back.

 dont forget about yourself

dont forget about what you like too, if you put the soundstage all up front you might not be used to the way it sounds. personally i say screw the comps and play it the way you like it. i love having loud ass rear speakers. my rear speakers are matched in bolume with my fronts and i couldnt be happier. i love the way it sounds with the soundstage directly in the center of the car, i drive with the seat leaned back and all ghetto style so my head it right in the middle of it all, sounds so awesome. i got infinity components in the doors, infinity tweeters in the frnt pillars and jl 6x9's in the back. the fronts get 85 wats each (rms) and the rears get 125 watts each (rms) its a but overkill on both sides, but it sounds so good i really dont care what other people say... :P

Not totally sure. Ive never done one before so Im not for sure whats out there. Someone mentioned to me once about SPL vs SQ and which one I wanted more of.

ok, well there is spl competition where you mids and high dont mean anything. it all how much pressure your subs can build. In SQ competition you want good clean, balanced sound.

If youre running the rear speakers off their own amp,use a toggle switch on the remote lead to that amp.When you enter the SQ comps,just flip the switch off and itll shut them off.Also,youll want a way to turn down the subs,if not off,depending on how low your front components play.Remember,SQ is all about staging and imageing.You want to be able to close your eyes and see where each instrument is on the stage.Low tones arent as directional as higher ones,cood components and say an 8",maybe a 10",up front is optimal for SQ.
