Default What I'm Going For.

Ok guys I'm going to describe the sound I want to reach a bit better this time and let's see if we get somewhere. I'ma need t00fatt to jump on this lol.

I want to add a bit more bass in my stock system. Think about me havin like an upgraded factory system like the newer accords. I have a cg6 and obviously it wasn't meant to have a good system but i want some bass for myself that bangs hard inside the car and not outside. That's the best i can explain lol. Thanks.

you wont get the bass you want without getting a subwoofer. look into powered subwoofers, like bazooka tubes or one of those compact ones you put under the seat. i used to have an audiobahn one and i loved it. the amp is built in, so you dont need to buy a seperate amp.

For what your saying you need very good speakers and an even better install. The rears need to be enclosed, by building a box to fit behind and seal the speaker. You then need to deaden and seal the front doors. That is the only way your going to get loud clean bass from your speakers. Any sub will be heard from outside, unless very small. So I would add a quality 8" on top of that. You can not get a lot of bass without a sub cheaply. Even then the bass is still not at all comparable to any sub.

That $100 could go towards something much better than that. That won't be loud or really sound good

Boss is junk. JBL makes nice stuff but the only thing Id use a Boss amp for is a door stop or maybe an anchor weight.

How much money are you willing to spend and how much time are you wanting to put forth in isntallation?

I can tell you already, what you want is not at all a low budget system. You can't get cheap speakers and make them produce the bass you want.
