  1. First time actually posting a build log but this year, I guess I will. I have done This will be the 3rd build in this Tahoe and I'm designing a C pillar wall with my wife (who actually has a ton of creative input.) I wish I could post some pictures!! First I am going to log a tear down of my initial build. This weekend I will start the tear down .
  2. this is my 2004 gmc sierra regular cab pickup amps 2x aq2200 lanzar opti 250.4 rf 850.4 no name garbage 200.4 subs 2x aq hdc3 12 speakers 8x sound stream 8inch pro 6x crescendo audio pwx 4 super tweeters audiopipe electrical 3 batteries 2 runs of 0 gauge stock alt (need ho alt badly)
  3. Alright so this is my first topic started on SMD so bear with me. I've been watching builds on here for the past couple years as a bystander, meanwhile doing alot of my own and I thought it was time to get in on the benefits of showing what you got and get input from other Car Audio Fanatics! This build is my personal truck that Ive had for about 4 years. 2003 GMC Sierra crew cab 2500HD with a vortech 8.1L. As for audio upgrades Ive been through many different set up's gradually building up to this, but this set up is so I can figure out where I can go bigger as far as subs and amps. Here is what we have so far for audio 2003 GMC Sierra w/ 8.1L Alpine INE-S920HD 3 sets of Rockford T2 6.5's 2 sets of Rockford T2 5.25's 1 Rockford 360.3 2 Boston acoustics spg555 subs in 5cu.ft ported box tuned to 36Hz 1 ea. Rockford t2500.1Bdcp,t600.4, and a t400.4 2 Xs power d3400's, and 2 Xs power d2700's LOT's of RF 1/0 power and ground recently added some SHCA 1/0 as well! DC Power 300amp alt 1 SMD VM-1 Rebuild/ truck change...2004 GMC Sierra w/ Duramax!! pg 19. Other upgrades 2 DC 5k's 4 DC XL 10's 2 DCPower 300spx alt's 2 XS D3400's and 3 D2700's All SHCA 1/0 wire and 16awg speaker wire 4 RF T2 6.5 comp sets 2 RF T2 5.25 comp sets 1 RF t1000.4AD 1 RF t600.4 RF 360.3 processor LOT's of SMD Meter's plenty of custom fabrication ] These are some 4" off road HID's I bought and fit to my factory bumper. Lighting is terrible where I live so having limo tint makes night visibility very bad, so I threw these in so they automaticaly come on in reverse but they are also on a relay to a flip switch so I can turn them on when I want. So tailgaters beware these are freaking bright!! They can light up a few blocks to say the least, I flipped them on when a buddie of mine was following and he had to come to a complete stop because they blinded him so bad. He was pretty pissed off ! Ill post some better pics when the truck is done so you can see how good they light up ]/URL]
  4. Hi all, My dad recently got a 2016 GMC Sierra 1500. We took the system out of his old truck and we are now trying to install it in this new one. It is just a very simple setup with 2 amps 1 for the sub and one for the mids. We don't want to change out the headunit or factory amp we just want to add to they system he already has. What we are unsure of is what color wires go to the door speakers and which ones go to the factory sub. If anyone has done anything like this please let me know what wires you used it would be greatly appreciated. I would attach pictures of what I am working with but I am n()()b and haven't figured that out yet.

  6. I have a NNBS GMC sierra extended cab. I want a clear sounding system that gets loud and have decided to go with 4 crescendo pwx 6.5" , with one in each door. Also 4 Ft1 tweeters, with one in each door. I am not sure if these mids will fit but I am willing to cut the factory bracket to make them work. FYI I will also be getting an amp for these speakers and have it mounted on the back wall. I have done the big 3 with 0 gauge and also a dual battery setup. Im taking my two 12s out and getting a sundown x15 with a custom built box to fit the back seat that my Hifonics brz1200.1d will be running. My question is how do I go about wiring the tweeters and mids with a crossover or the crescendo tweeter crossover. The speakers and tweeters come in 2 choices of 4 or 8 ohms and I am not sure which ohms I would need for the tweeters and mids to use along with a regular crossover or the ft1 tweeter crossover. I will be running new wire to the amp from each speaker crossover in the doors so my main question is what wiring configuration and which ohms do I need to compare for a correct setup?
  7. Hi everyone, I finally joined after a long time lurking this forum. I recently decided to step up my bass game from the two 12’s I’ve had for a while. I’ve had a system in every vehicle I've owned and was the one always doing installs for friends in high school and teaching them how to install. I've always wanted to do a serious build, so I decided one day I’d sell my Subaru for an S10 and upgrade my system properly. So I bought a 99 Sonoma ZQ8 ext cab this past november and spent the spring fixing up the main issues that needed to be done before spending money on the system. I had a blown double cardan joint that I replaced with a rear conversion shaft and blown shocks that were replaced with a Belltech 2/2 drop kit (+ZQ8 = 3.5"/3.5” total). I recently swapped in a Mechman 270A alternator that I got used for $150 to power the upgrades I’m doing to my stereo. Earlier this week I went up to the only SPL shop I could find in my area and ordered an 18” Skar ZVX v2 (they said it was better than the Sundown X I was looking at and I trust them since they are successful SPL competitors). I also have 100 sq. ft. of GTmat for dampening, but will only be doing the floor/roof/backwall because I plan to replace the rusty doors next summer when doing bodywork. I will probably get a Skar SK1500d before heading back to school in september if I can sell my current stereo in time. I've gotten rusty with installations after not doing many in the past few years, so I'm open to suggestions. This was what my truck looked like... until a "friend" backed up into the bed with his new F150, this is my damage. This is his damage, he was able to rub most of it off and is now being quite difficult in helping with the repair(long story)... So this is what it looks like now. I intend on doing the bodywork next summer, but I'm still unsure of what direction the build will go in (I will probably clean up the panel before going back to school). I installed the Mechman 270a alternator and Big 4 with 1/0awg copper welding cable. It took a while to get all the right parts, mainly the belt. Also I use SnapChat a lot, so that will explain the text on most of the pictures. I got this alt on Kijiji for $150. It was from a 2006 Tahoe, but for some reason he got one that didn't have the proper PCM hook-up and was causing charging issues. I saw the one wire and similar plug and figured it should work, luckily it did. It was tough to fit the four 1/0 grounds and original ground, even with extended posts. A dual battery upgrade is on the list. Since I couldn't find it anywhere, the proper belt for a large case Mechman alt on a 4.3L is the Goodyear Gatorback 4060960. Unfortunately the one I bought had a different belt (taught me to verify the part numbers!) inside, a 4060100 if I recall, which was 4 inches too long. I got it sorted out after waiting a few days for it to arrive. Either way, I saved about $500 getting it used. If it craps out, I'll try to send it back to Mechman to be refurbished with a 6-phase stator (hopefully will last longer than my last 2 stock alts). I also picked up a raw LED voltmeter for $6, I think it's for Arduino projects. I like it, but I just got to find a proper wire for it to read off, the factory voltmeter wire was killing the battery on start-up.
  8. Hey guys, Just letting you know that this build log is going to be mega slow-mo. I dont have the job to have a lot of money to just throw around. Also, a HUGE thanks to DylanBunch for helping me with my box. the fi sub next to my rockford series one. Got my sheets cut out. just a quick mock up of what im going to do. Got my sub fitted got the back piece in. And here is where it will sit until i get home tomorrow. Popeye will protect my sub from dust and stupid people! Thats all i got today
  9. For the past 2 years ive had a 12" DC level 3. Figured it was time to step it up so i decided to put 4 DC m38's under the rear seat. The Truck: 2005 GMC Sierra Ext cab: Old Sub: 12" DC level 3 Infinity amp 600rms Then I changed the box:
  10. The stormtrooper build......not looking to put a massive sound system in the truck. I have my 2 jl audio W0v3s and my jl audio xd600 watt amp. Just have the fun challenge of putting all of this under the back seat without modifying my truck to much already have an idea to get a little bit more room under there.....should be fun.
