Oh, and I did upgrade to the Eclipse EA3422 (50 x 4 @ 4ohms, 70 @ 2) for my front stage...

It sounds a good bit better than the Alpine MRP-F240 (40 x 4 @ 4ohms, 50 @ 2), and has better midbass -mostly due to the adjustable h/p filter (the MRP-F240 is set @ 80Hz, blah!).

Let me know what you think! Tell my about experiences with any of this gear that you may have had...

I am like you I dig the 9830 and yeah it is still on par with the newer models.  I have never tried the Boston subs, but their coaxes and plates are amazing.  I hear good stuff about the Eclipse amps, never used one though.

I understand your dilemma with the tires, I don't blame you I wouldn't want to haul everything out just to change a tire either.

Thanks,

Upscaler

Pic, so you guys don't think i'm lying...

https://i209.photobucket.com/albums/bb103/jmelton86/Stereo%20Junk/ea3422.jpg

Dual Orbital yellowtops. Front battery grounded in 4g. Rear battery grounded in double 2g. Big3 in 4g. Batterys are paralleled with 4g, fused d-block in between for sub-amp power. 8g (fused @ 80a) from d-block to sub amp. Mains amp has dedicated 8g from front battery. Both amps grounded in 8g (soon to up to 4g for amp power/gound).

16g wire ran to each front stage speaker (4 runs, one for each tweeter, one for each mid). 12g wire for sub.

All wiring is Monster, RF, and Raptor (get it through my work -decent wire). All fuse blocks are Monster, RF, and Belden.

I was wondering the same thing.   I would hate to see you guys if you ever got your hands on a real Alpine Deck.  CDA-9815 here.  No it is not for sale.

Update!

I've removed my SSF. I had an MTX active x-over for my SSF @ 32Hz and was using the amps' LPF. Well, the amp is of low quality (DEI Xtreme) so it was killing my SQ.

I now have turned the amps' x-over off and am only using the MTX as the LPF.

SQ has gone WAY up, and the low-end is much (MUCH) louder! I did test for bottoming out by playing Late Nite Tip (slowed, hehehe) with the volume cranked and it was all good!

I can't explain in words how much better the lows are. I can finally get my trunk lid, dash, steering wheel, and rear (speaker) panel moving

After removing the SSF and upgrading my amp wires to 4g, the bass can sometimes make me feel kinda nauseous (sp?) at times. Especially on screwed music.

It's not too bad, but barely noticeable. It  just moves so much more air!

It's freakin awesome! One 10"!

Well, i've been thinking that one of the coils on my sub was blown, but it's not!

I figured 'WTH', so I removed the sub from the box and checked each coil... they both read 3.2ohms. Woot woot.

Sooo, I wired the sub to 2ohms and let me tell you, it is MUCH louder. It's gotta be about 4- 6dB's louder. It's got my rear speaker deck as well as the trunk lid bouncing pretty well! I'll update with a video as soon as I can get ahold of a camera.
