  1. So this is my buddies car Ive been doing a install on. Been kind of an ongoing project for few months now Id say. Simple reason behind the time being so long is A) waiting on product here and there, Its a lot of work, C) My actual work time is very limited with his work schedule along with being a Professional Arm wrestler. So Usually I get 1-2 nights a week to work on his car from 7pm til daylight when the birds start to chirp. The car is getting close to being built (well the box is at least) lol So heres a little list of the product being used: Subs: Two Fi BTL N3 12s dual .7ohm coils (and Scott at Fi was nice enough to send a free pair of recones along with the subs) Amps: Two Sundown SAZ-4500D's (strapped at .7ohms). Two Sundown SAX-100.4s. Mids: Four Sundown NeoPro 8s (2 in each front door). Possibly a NeoPro 10 in each rear yet, not sure. Highs: Four Selenium ST-200 supertweets (2 in dash, 1 in each front door) possibly another tweet in each rear door, not sure. Mids and highs will be ran active. Battery: Three or Four XS Power D3100's (maybe more if needed) Headunit: Pioneer AVH-P4300 Wiring: Two runs Positive, Two runs Negative front to back Knukonceptz flex OFC 1/0. Roughly 260+ feet of Monster Cable 12awg for mids/highs. Kicker 3channel RCA's, Knukonceptz OFC 4awg for mids/high amps. AudioTecnix 4 or 8awg for sub wires. Stinger volt meter Sound Deadener: A little bit of everything Trunk was done before with "80mil Zillmat" that was actually asphalt based not a butyl/asphalt mixture like advertised, and was about 50ish mil thick.. Also got some Secondskin Damp Pro 80mil, and a good 50ish sq feet of 80mil AudioTechnix (need to order more for the 4 doors and roof). Alternator: Still not sure. DC Power XP series more than likely (seems I have no problem getting product from there). Otherwise maybe a Mechman. Whichever brand it is, It will be 300+amp with a hairpin stator for sure. Think the stock alt is 160 or 180amp hairpin does pretty good for now. Wood: Four sheets of 100% Baltic Birch 13ply. Not that cheap 40$ stuff most people buy that is plywood. The real deal stuff that uses no bogus fir filler and costs $75 per sheet and often times a special ordered wood... Think thats about it for the product, besides the 3 gallons of resin so far, bunch of body filler, fiberglass mat/cloth, fleece, greatstuff, black vinyl, spray adhesive, brushes, lots and lots of sandpaper, and all those other little supplies that add up very fast and often overlooked. Not sure where to start with the pictures... Ive recently switched phone carriers so I could get the Samsung Galaxy Note, and Im sure I lost a few pics here and there.. This car is being built tough, and done right with no skimping on this or that, or rushed to get it done. It is not a competition vehicle in anyway, just a daily driver. Air shocks in the rear are already needed and thats without the subs/amps installed (just box and battery weight). The box was built and dry fitted in my garage with clamps, than built inside the car. Alot of the box is 2,3,and 4 layers thick in spots. Every seem/joint is being overlapped for added strength. It is also completly sealed off from the trunk. No trunk rattles at all. The previous box I installed broke the trunk latch and tore the sheet metal and has been fixed 2 times now with 1/8inch thick steel. Ok now onto the pics... LOL
  2. will probably get a lot of asshole comments, but what the hell... how does one go about getting sponsored for discounted parts and stuff? not all of us have our own shops, or live in a town where car audio is top of the line. i cant go into a store here without being bullshitted around and told ridiculous prices for bogus equipment. they think that just because they have a shop that no one else knows anything about stereo equipment.
  3. 2012 Nissan frontier SV 4 door build!!!! Finally gettin on it. Ok will upload a few teaser pics when I get home as I'm on mobile right now. But here is product list. A lot of which I already have the rest of which I still gotta buy Custom everything. : dash, doors, blow through custom multiple alt bracket. Source :iPad 3 and jvc kdx50bt Mids and tweets::10 10"seismic audio ES +6 8" ES 12 power acoustic bullets nx5's I think is model number (yes I know power acoustic isnt exactly the best but most bullets are pretty much the same and I like pa cuz they are black ) Mids and tweets amps:4x jl audio hd750.1 Hook ups: All audio technix power cable and either tsunami or stinger rcas haven't figured that out yet. Processing: audio control 3.2 Subs : at the moment thinking fi sp4 4x15's Bass amps : 2x crescendo bc 5500 3x mechman alts 1 is 270 other 2 are 320 As many xs d3100 as I can fit. I know one under the good and hopefully 6 in rear. This build will be all 12 volt just because I don't want to have 20 50 ah batts in back. Lol all 16 volt bats are friggin small. Teaser pics coming!!!!!! ok product update...

  4. Hello guys, I am in the process of getting everything together for a new system for my 2012 Chevrolet Cruze, and I need some help. I am wondering what kind of xs power batteries I need, and how many to power two Crescendo BC3500D's bridged together on two DC XL 12's for a 1 ohm load. The list I have so far for the build is the following: Tsunami PR601R-50 (power wire 0 gauge) Tsunami PRE-GN601-25*2 (ground wire 0 gauge) XS Power D6500*2?? (crescendo amp batteries) XS Power D680?? (american bass amp battery) XS Power D3100?? (under the hood battery) DC XL 12*2 (subs) Sundown NEO PRO 6.5*4 (door speakers) Sundown NEO PRO 8*2 (rear deck speakers) Audiotechnix Deadener 6sq. ft. 60mil*8 American Bass SQ475*2 (speaker/tweeter amps) 300 amp high output alt FT1 Super Tweeter Crescendo*2 Crescendo BC3500D*2 (subwoofer amps) All the information I could get would be very helpful in my process so I can get started on the system build. As soon as I get started (which will be in a few months after I get all the money) I will be uploading pictures, and then videos. Thank you all for your help.
