  1. I wish. Would be super dope.
  2. Its been awhile since I've worked on one but if I remember correctly those silverados have big ole boots that aren't too much of a struggle. My buddy has one and he had me install a system in it for him and we've already had the dash out and switched for a new one. I gotta say it's quite pleasant to work on. This buick made me throw stuff and cuss.
  3. So I went ahead and ran two runs of 12 through the door boots and used 12 for the tweets. Just because I already had it. I tell ya I'll never make that mistake again. Took hours to get both runs through the boots and then to get them to pass through the spot behind the kick panels into the cab. Next time I'm using smaller wire all around lmao. I never knew installing a amp and components could be so difficult. What I thought I would have done in a single evening has stretched out into 2 days but should be all finished up tomorrow. Or atleast I hope so we will see what happens though. Here's a pic of the amps mounted on the rack. Ive still got to mount the crossovers and LEDs on the rack would have had that done tonight but didnt have the right hardware. I know its a mess I'll have it cleaned up soon though just trying to get it done for now.
  4. I'm terrified of airbags. Not because of bass but I'm scared to accidently deploy them working on my cars. I dont have an answer to your question but just thought I'd put myself in the conversation.
  5. I figure 12 might be overkill I have 50 feet of it but may save it for installing mids and the like. I'm running 12g on the subs too going to order some 10/2 or 8/2 for the subs. Probably overkill as well but it feels lame running same size on subs as mids lol.
  6. Is it acceptable to use 18awg speaker wire for tweeters or should I go 16? I am putting xovers in trunk so it will be probably 12 feet runs or close to there. I already have 12g now but I want to save it and order some smaller wire in a different color for tweeters.
  7. Well I hope they offer you a kick ass deal and if not hope the learning curve is good to you I wish you the best no matter what you decide. Definetly keep me posted on it either way. If you dont have a build thread already it would be super dope if you post one when things get moving.
  8. This is what I found. Didnt give me motor size or enough measurements to figure it out but I can probably get closer to making an educated guess about rather or not they will work and I'm thinking they will.
  9. You got it man glass is messy af but easy to do. If you do need help though let me know I'm pretty good with glass. No pro by any means but I've been doing it for years from a pillars to enclosures and alot of stuff in between. Heres some pics of the tweeter pods im working on now they still arent done but getting there. Also I'll try downloading the manual thats a good idea.
  10. Lol yea same man I had some pioneer ones someone had given me I passed them on to my brother in law other than that the set in my car now is the first set I've had in years. I wish I could find the specs for those forgate ones online all I'm finding for them is mounting depth. I read in a review on amazon that someone said they have smaller magnets and looking at the pics I posted the motors on them do look slightly smaller but I'd hate to have to guess and end up being wrong and stuck with a second set that doesnt fit. Or hassled with having to return them. On a more positive note I am almost done with my fiberglass tweeter pods and that much closer to having enough photos to be comfortable with posting a build thread.
  11. Ah its just rear fill. I'd rather change them out than deal with hacking up the rear deck and mounting them in it to get them raised. Plus the sound isn't all that great I just think they are dope because they are old and possibly vintage. They aren't bad sounding either just not great enough to outweigh the problems that come with them. Definitely changing them out with something that fits I cant stand the rattle from third break light being pushed into the back window anymore its pretty annoying so I just leave the bass all the way down most of the time.
  12. I would have to mount them in the deck cover its a tight fit under it but 3/4 would get the clearance I need. I measured the magnets they are 5" across.
  13. Cant really tell but looks like they may be close to the same size magnets if I had the car here right now I'd measure the current by 9s Edit: Thought I would add I have tried removing the rubber surround from magnets already it makes almost no difference.
  14. Lmao thats dope maybe I need to send my wife in to do the negotiating at the dealer. There is a pretty good show called hacking the system that has a segment about negotiating with car salesmen to get the beat deal possible. If you havent seen it I think you may be able to catch the bootleg on YT and its pretty entertaining if not informative. So on the trunk strut situation its going on the back burner for now. I figured out I'll need a 6 inch strut with a 8 inch stroke. Yea those dont exist so until I figure out a better mounting method that wont take up all the trunk space I'm back to looking for new 6x9s. Also interesting tidbit I found out the trunk torsion bar removal and installation on this car requires trunk removal, rear deck removal, rear seat removal, hinge removal and in some cases removal of rear glass and from what I read online some dealerships wont even perform the repair on these buicks... Bunch of p*****s. I'll be in it like I know what I'm doing once I figure out a game plan. Anyways I think I may want to try the punch series 6×9s I'm going to see if I can figure out magnet size on them and if its acceptable I'll probably order a set. Anyone here use them?
