    Default Upgrading towers and amps... Exiled?? maybe...

    Aight guys, have a few quick questions but let me give you the low down first...

    The 08 LSV I just picked up last month came with a "workable" system... just no REAL towers! Everything is Kicker Components, with 700.5 powering cabins and a 10" sub and a 300 powering some basic kicker speakers in the Roswell Cans.

    At first I started researching which HLCDs I could just swap out the Kickers for, but most everything I found required some cutting or mod'ing to make them fit the Cans so I've decided to just sell the Roswell cans with the Kicker speakers w/tweeters and just buy some HLCDs!

    Also, I already picked up a Krypt EQ from jmvotto (Thanks Joe) and still waiting on Rgargipee to send me his K700.5 to replace my 300 to push the new towers... I know this isn't the best set up, but it was a good deal that I can make work! (Thanks Robby)

    I already sent Brian a message through the forum to see what he has, but in the mean time I have a couple questions...

    1) If I were to go with the XM7s will I have any problems mounting them with my Z5 Cargo rack or do they fit just fine?
    2) If I sell the Roswell Cans with the Kicker speakers and tweeters with the 300amp (maybe 250.2?), what should I list them for?

    Thanks,
    Taylor

    No problems mounting xm7s with a z5. That's my set up and and you can adjust the z5 if clearance is an issue.

    Good to know David, thanks!! I'm not a big fan of running the towers above the top rail so just wanted to make sure they fit normal.
    If anybody has a pair of xm7s they wanna sell me to upgrade just let me know....

    Well.... I called Brian... We had a good talk about what I wanted out of my current set up and what I wanted to improve out the gate! We were both on the same page as far as getting set up right with the towers first, then the cabins, then later I will swap out the 10" sub for a 12", which is when I'll need to step up my amps....
    Anywayyyyysss to make a long story short, Brian at Exile hooked me up with some GREAT gear at some GREAT prices today! I have a pair of XM9s and 2 pairs of SXT65-M for the cabin headed my way!!! I'm pumped, to say the least!!!!!
    Thanks to everyone here on the forum on older threads for info and several of you that I pm'd for other info! Much appreciated!!! Big shout out to Mike!
