Well I am clicks away from pulling the trigger on my Tech12volt system and wanted some last minute reassurance to get rid of any hope of buyers remorse later on. I will be going with Techs package deal with the 2 G1 10" in his custom enclosure powered by a Sundown 100.2 amp.

What sucks is that I don't know anyone local who has a system in their Titan to hear their setups to even start to compare. So if anyone is in Northern California who is willing to show off their sound system is nearby, I'll be willing to buy you a :cheers: for your time.

My little Acura Integra right now is running 2 12" Rockford Fosgate Punch XLCs powered by an RF 400a4 bridged. I ran a RF 500a2 originally but I ended up trading that one away. The sealed box was custom made to fit the XLC and the back section of my trunk somewhere around 1999. Since it was a 4door, I also had a pass through hole cut out on the rear deck lid to let the air into the cabin. When turned up and the bass hit while the windows are down, you can feel your hair vibrate. (but it's been a long while since I turned it up that high) :teeth:

The Titan obviously has a lot more room but how will the 2 G1 10"s sound in comparison running on a SD 100.2 amp? I love LOUD clean sharp bass. I listen to mostly hip-hop/r&b but also listen to alternative, rock, etc. On the opposite side of the coin, I just turned 30 this year and don't think I need to have a super loud system anymore that vibrates the car next to me in the stoplight. But it would be cool to still have that option to be able to, especially when the rattle job sound systems pull up at the stop light with their trunks rattling like there was no tomorrow.

So all you G1 owners out there, I hear some of you guys comparing the 2 G1 10s to 2 12"ers. How long have you had your system and is there anything you would change about it now? I know everybody here goes by the philosophy of thinking that whatever they have installed is the best option but still wanted to see if there were any other options the G1 10 owners would have taken differently for improvement.

I'm already talking with Tech. I just wanted to get some more feedback from his customers.

I reread AgTitan06 and BMF'n Titan install threads since they basically ordered the exact same setup from Tech12volt. :D

If I had a larger budget, I would be going with 4 G1 10s but thats not the case this year so I just wanted to see if there was anything the 2 G1 10s owners would change in their setup now.

honestly when you buy this system you feel like you spent twice as much. Thats the truth. There is nothing entry level about the boston g1s excepth the price. This system is amazing and i have not had one person unhappy.

That is exactly what I wanted to hear. I reread all of the G1 10 threads again from the past 6 months and have not heard any complaints. I just wanted to get an update from people who have been running them for a while now to see how they've held up after the initial honeymoon phase faded.

I really really wish I could have heard the system in person firsthand first, but I trust Tech12volt enough based on all of his helpful posts to sorta jump in this one kinda blind (or is that deaf in this case). LOL

The only drawback is you get such nice clean crisp deep bass from these subs...it will make you want to get nice clean crisp sound from your door speakers. For now though, I'll live with my stock speakers, but I'd love to upgrade down the road. For now, I'm looking to add more performance to my engine.

Thats the problem with car audio its addictive and you just cant get enough! haha.....

The G1's sound great considering the price they are. When I went to the Old Town meet I was able to listen to a lot of peoples systems in the trucks. Some with 2-10" G1, 1-12" G1, Kicker boxes, Sundown subs, etc and the Bostons sounded great. I really liked the new Sundown subs too but they cost more. James also had some G1's for sale so I got to inspect them and I was very impressed not only with the build quality but also some of the features they have. They are one of the best bang for the buck subs I've seen in a long time.

Don't forget though, you could have the most expensive sub you can buy but if the enclosure isn't right for it it will sound like a 50 dollar sub. This is one of the reasons James boxes sound so great. I guarantee you that if you went and bought a prefab box and threw the same sub in it the sound would be crap compared to TECH12 boxes. James takes extra time to ensure he can get the most out of the subs by building the boxes to the exact requirements for the sub that is going in it. He also maks sure they are airtight by sealing the inside with fiberglass resin. This is very important with box building.

Honestly he does'nt charge enough for the quality that he puts into these. I've seen 300 dollar + boxes build at custom audio shops that look like crap compared to James boxes.

Give them a shot, you wont be disappointed. But be warned, you will always want more and its easy to sell it and "UPGRADE" in the future. :)

Thanks for the reply t22a80. At the meet, if you could rank the different subs offered, where would you have placed the 10" G1s?

I know for sure I will be getting a package from tech its just that I want to make sure I pick one of the better ones that he offers. ;)

Amen there bro. I've seen custom boxes go for twice as much as what James sales them for. I can tell you that you will be hard press to find anything better for the money and you will be getting a product from someone who has designed more systems for the Titan than anyone you can find.

I don't like ecrawford and his stinking 10 G1 setup! You're making me jealous and making we want to cough up the $ to actually do the same!!! LOL

Looks like I'm gonna get the 2 G1 setup instead since nobody else is chiming in here regarding the other setups that Tech had built for them.

Honestly you can not go wrong with anything you buy from me. I try really hard to go over what you expect to get. And if for some crazy reason that doesnt happen I will work with untill you get exactly what you want. So far this only happened once and the guy bought his subs and changed his mind later. He wanted sq at first and the decided he really want SPL. needless to say i lost 200 dollars getting him the sound he wanted . Wasnt my fault but I made it right.

I know you're a busy guy and definitely don't want to put you through anything like that based on my indecisions so I'm just trying to get it out of my system now before pulling the trigger. There is no doubt that I'll be getting my system from you. I just don't want any buyers remorse and want to upgrade sooner than I want. If anything, I want people to want the system I end up getting. :D

You'll get PM from me shortly. ;)

To be honest its hard to say. I listened to SO many systems that day. Ask James, my head was spinning by the end of it. HAHA

I was really impressed with the new Sundown subs however they are almost 2 times as much. You could do 4 G1's for about the same price with the difference being the price of the box. (James could tell you what that would be). The thing is that unless you listened to the G1's then jumped into a truck that had the exact setup with the SD1v2's you probably wouldn't be able to tell much of a difference. The Sundown's are better but for most people the G1's are a great sub, I think that often people get caught up in the fact that they are so inexpensive and they think that they cant be good. For just over 100 bucks they are the best bang for the buck I've seen. They are very heavy build and seem to be pretty durable. They are a pretty decent SQ sub that can get loud enough for most people. They have another feature that you wont see on many other subs of any price and that is the fuse protection. This is nice because it gives it great flexibility for wiring and also adds a little bit of insurance that if your amp clips or for some reason sends too much power to the sub due to improper setup the fuse should blow before the sub does. If it were me I'd pick the Boston's over, Kicker, Rockford, JL, Alpine, Kenwood, Pioneer, MBQ, Sony, MTX, etc. And I've had most of them.

I currently use CDT Audio for speakers, they are a small "NO NAME" brand that is popular over in Europe. I've had that stuff for a long time and have always liked it. After hearing some of the Boston setups and seeing the pricing I'd consider giving them a shot next time around. Same with the Sundown amps, I currently run Arc Audio XXK amps and I was very impressed with the Sundown's for the price, again dont let the price fool you Jacob has found a winning compromise between good clean sound, reliable components, and good value in amps that are underrated. I hope he keeps it up and releases some more great products.
