audio log for the new car... slowly acquiring new equipment and planning everything out...
start this out with the sub box. first i was going to keep my old 13w6 in a big ass box taking up my whole trunk. then i figured i'd do a nice box to fit under the rear deck like lots have.... was going to go with the ebay box but decided to build my own to get one with more volume.
box plans and build:
ever drop a box of screws? put a magnet in a grocery bag and hover over it
getting rid of the old side panels and amps. i had a jl audio 300/4 on the driver side and a jl audio 500/1 on the passenger side. im making new side panels with a little storage compartment to hold **** in and mounting new amps on the floor panel ima do.
old side panels with amps:
new jl audio 1000/1 for sub. waiting for a 450/4 to pop up to grab
tyty. i redid it and am on my second set. I decided to wrap them in vinyl from Joann's which is a close match instead of sanding which I now know I hate to do.
going in a different direction now. sold the jl 1000 because I decided to go with sundown audio amps. 1500w for the dc lvl 4 15 that I decided I'm keeping and a 125.4 for cabin speakers.
also selling that box I built. decided to go band pass through the rear deck. undecided if I want to make a plexiglass cutout so you can see the sub do its thing from the trunk.
on the hunt for an alpine 9887 head unit. other than that, been busy and haven't worked on this car. however, I AM contemplating putting matching rear roadmaster door panels in so they have the courtesy lights. maybe rear door pods on those door panels. who knows
got some new stuff. i think all i need is one more amp and then i can start wiring and creating the trunk layout
- garys wires
- 1/0 gauge wire kit
- side post to top post battery adapter. was in a hurry when i bought my battery a while ago and didn't notice it didn't have both post. pissed off about that.
