    Just got a call from Audio Direct, where I ordered from.

    Nice sounding Guy tells me the new subwoofer has been launched, and he's "upgrading" mine to the new one, no charge. Old one is 1000 w, new one is 1100 and apparently a bit better.

    Noice.

    Nakamichi DVD/CD Receiver with USB/Bluetooth NQ911B
    Nakamichi 6.5" Coaxial Speaker 4-Way 650W
    Nakamichi 6.5" 2-WAY SPLIT SYSTEM 450W NSE-CS1677
    Nakamichi 8" 1000W Active Slim Subwoofer NBF08A
    I am running a Chinese sub. Still sounds great. I think you will be happy with the sound.

    Guys quick one please.........busy installing a sound system in the Patrol.

    The subwoofer has its own amp etc etc, all is well, BUT...........

    Where to put it??

    1) Under the passenger seat looks ideal, BUT
    1.1) How to "fix" it, can it just lie "loose" there, its a HELL of a job removing the seat for just a bracket
    1.2) Will it have an OK "effect" there, under the seat??

    2) Somewhere at the rear, but it will be exposed, and next to or on top of the drawers, so I'm not really to keen on it

    3) In the rear footwell, in the centre is also a good place...........BUT
    3.1) If there is ever a 3d (center) passenger, its under his feet

    ............PLEASE ADVISE, I need to decide, thanks!!!

    Make the effort and put under seat. You only need to do it once. Secure properly. How? We always just screwed it in with self tapping screws. (not recommending that, just saying its an option)

    Shot thanks Quick............

    1) Passenger seat??

    2) Will it have the desired effect there??

    3) Then, it has its own little volume control knoppie thingie - where to put this, sommer next to the sub, or is it something that I'd use often, rather get it nearer to the driver??

    THANKS

    Quick............thanks again.

    Het besluit die seat moet more uit en ons sit daai sub uit die oog uit maar hy moet VAS wees teen die vloer.

    Laat ek dit maar reg doen.......dis een of ander sindroom wat ek seker het :biggrin:

    By the way, from what I've seen thus far I'm UBER impressed - speakers are solidly built, Head Unit look like great quality but nice and "simple", and that sub is VERY solid looking, with alu/some metal body, and quite heavy.

    The 4 speakers (6.5') fitted perfectly in the standard enclosures, as did the Nak tweeters in the existing spaces in the door pillars, so all looks 100% original and well hidden.

    Hope it sounds as good as it looks, then I think it's good value for $$$
