If you have a system please post it here. I'm curious to see what other Forte / Forte Koup drivers have chosen for subwoofers, amps, tweeters, mids and ect.


For my Forte Koup SX, I have a 10in Alpine Type R with an Alpine PDX M6 amp:cool:

I also have my subwoofer in a ported box. Haha I'm really lucky I live near a car store that specializes in Alpine and Rockford Fosgate systems. Of course I ordered everything from the internet and got it cheaper than MSRP and the store's prices :)

D113 how much did that all cost if you don't mind my asking? Not to mention how many hours it must of taken to do it all yourself.

I dunno, I did it over a period of time, added, changed, added etc. Prolly about 3 G's in gear, and maybe 100 man hours. I paid a company to install all the audio, and I did all the deadening.

I've sat in D113 front passenger seat...the power from the front door speaker was so powerful that the sound waves was tickling my legs!!!!!

A totally awesome sound system!!!

I have JBL speakers in the front, rears are still OEM, old school 2 X 10' Kicker subs powered by an alpine sub.
My future plans...are of course to replace the rears with JBLs and a 4 channel amp to power up the interior speakers.
