  1. Finally getting a build log going, I had 3 goals in mind when I started this build: 1) 150+ db outlaw 2) 145+ db at 20hz or below (outlaw) 3) 150dB at the windshield legal I have a termlab and hope to share my results along the way. I've been working on this build for 5-6 months now and have done alot of testing with the TL. Sub Bass is my main focus right now because I want to compete with this vehicle. I do plan on upgrading the stock mids and highs at some point but for now I'm putting my time and money into SPL. I'm starting with JL simply because thats what I had in my old F150 and I want to see what they can do from a trunk. 150 db seems a bit unrealistic from "SQ" subs but I will see how loud I can get them and if I hit a plateau before 150 I will get subs more suited for SPL. Here's some pics of my new ride. Not the biggest trunk but it will do.

Have had great luck in the past with low wattage and mono amps and jl. Suggestions?????
  7. Here is my 2005 Renault Megane II which has been fully customized in and out. The Megane II is a very unique car to begin but with the added customizations just make the car that much different than any other Megane like this. The other essential point is that 95% of the customization work to this car has been done by me, out of my garage. You may be thinking that I am a mechanic or am in this line of work but in reality I have an IT background. All of the things that I have done so far have all been done on a trial and error basis. The internet has been my directions on how to do things and then I attempt the project myself. I figure there isn’t anything that can really be that hard to do so why not attempt it myself. Why pay someone a whole lot of money to do something that I’m perfectly capable of doing myself. I have taken several pictures along the way to actually show how I have done things (maybe not the best way) but I hope everyone appreciates what has been accomplished so far. I have posted a bunch of my stereo build pics below but my entire build archive of the entire car can be found here which includes over 300 pics: Here is my current mod list.
