Default Infiniti G35 2dr Coupe Good Audio Set up?

Hi, I'll be buying an Infiniti G35 soon, and I want a little bit more power in my audio system than what it comes with stock. Can anyone recommend a set up for it that will not only provide good quality sound, but with extremely heavy, and powerful bass? I'm more interested in getting a sub first, because I'm sure that I'll be able to live with it's stock speakers for a little while, but I'm going to want powerful bass up front. Can anyone suggest a full system to me though? I'll install it all eventually, but it may come in bits and pieces. I want it to be a great quality audio system, but at the same time, it has to fit in the car (It'll probably be a 2004-2007 model), and it has to sound amazing and be powerful. My budget is probably going to be around $400-$600 up front, but then I can add whatever I need later. can anyone suggest some quality stuff here for that price? Thanks!

Dude didn't you just make an identical thread about a 350z? No need to create duplicates.

Yeah, I did, however, this one is for a different car. It matters. The 350Z is a hatchback and this is a coupe. I decided against the 350Z when I realized it's only a 2 seater. I need a car with 4 seats. So, this car has much less space to install a speaker system. So yeah, I did. But there's a reason I did.

As a matter of forum courtesy you should have modified your previous post with the details of your latest decision as the answer to the question is still largely the same given your specific situation. Not a huge problem but it is customary on all forums to avoid creating nearly identical discussion threads.

Default Any other suggestions?

Okay, so I think I found a good set up.

This:

Sound Ordnance™ B-24 Bandpass enclosure with two 12" subwoofers at Crutchfield.com

with this:

Sound Ordnance M-2250 2-channel car amplifier — 175 watts RMS x 2 at Crutchfield.com

Is this a good set up for good, powerful bass? How easy would this be to install? Will this even fit in a 2004 Infiniti G35 Coupe?

I haven't heard anything from that brand, however that is a very large box. If it fits in the trunk it will take up most of it. Is trunk space important? Honestly I would just start with upgrading the stock radio. You will need to anyway to add subwoofers and you may find that you're perfectly satisfied with the sound.

What I'm thinking is that the stock speakers will be plenty quality-wise for me. I just want extremely powerful bass to go along with it, instead of stock subs it may come with. Stock systems almost never provide enough bass. Trunk space isn't that important. And I know it fits because I went on the website recommended above and this pops up as a sub that fits. From what I've heard, they're very good for the price.

Can you maybe suggest any better subs? Or can you go into further detail with your "stock radio" upgrade? What would I need to buy to upgrade the stock radio?

You really want so much bass your trunk shakes and sounds like garbage? Really?

Most of the time you can't hook up subs without upgrading a HU. Most stock HUs simply don't have an output to an amp.

FWIW, you do know that to have a sub you also need an amp, right?

First off, yes, I want powerful bass. I can upgrade the stock speakers too, but no one has given me any suggestions. The only suggestions I have gotten thus far have been towards the Subs.

And to answer your questions, yes, I know I need an amp for the subs. Note how I also posted a link to the amp that I'm going to pair up with the sub right below the link to the sub.

Can anyone suggest any speakers that I can put into my car and how much it'll cost? I'm looking to do a complete overhall on the audio system, including the HU. So any HU upgrade suggestions? Thanks!
