  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. Can anyone tell me if I can use a router on 3/4" plexiglass? I want to use a tracing bit (can't think of the proper name) and my mdf template to route same shape in plexi. Can I do this with my router?
  3. Whats up guys! My Brother and I bought a 1994 chevy astro EXT and we are going to make a demo/daily driver/computer repair van. My brother does computer repair, and we are going to set up part of the van with a 42 inch tv on a swivel mount, and his master computer will be mounted in the van. we will have a nice panel with all sorts of connectors like hdmi, vga, power outlets, dvi, usb, and so on so that he will be able to go to peoples houses and get their computers and be able to plug them into the van and service the computers in the van. I do car electronics as a hobby, so it will be pretty much a showcase of what I can do. I want it to be able to do hairtricks all day and have the mids and highs to keep up with it. The equipment list is as follows: (some of it we already have and some of it we need to get. Everything that is in bold is equipment that we already have.) Subs: 2 RE MT 18 inch with dual .7 coils SOLD...2 18 inch American Bass HD subs with PSI softparts 2 18 inch zv3 Motors and baskets with zv4 spiders and NSV2 coils Mids: 8- 8" Crescendo pwx 8 ohm mids Tweeters: 2 selenium ST 200 and 2 Crescendo FT1 tweeters 4 Selenium ST200 Tweeters Sub amp: AQ 3500 Crescendo BC 5500 Mids and highs amp: Crescendo 1000c4 or Kicker zx850.4--or something that will run around 1k rms Crescendo 1600.2 on mids, Rockford Fosgate Punch 500.2 on tweeters CT sounds 60.4 on tweeters Wiring: 100 ft of knukoncepts 0 gauge CCA wire 50 ft of knukoncepts 8 gauge wire probably around 200-300 ft of knukoncepts 12 gauge wire for mids and highs bunch of fuses and fuse blocks Electrical: 1 Xs d3100, 2 Group 31 Sealed AGM, 2 Shruiken BT-60, 1 Sealed group 34 AGM for the engine bay i am not sure about this but im hoping mike singer can build me a 350 amp alt so i dont have to figure out how to do a dual alt setup.

  4. What's up everyone, I've been brainstorming around for a little bit and I would love some advice and guidelines about a project I've been thinking about undertaking!! Check this out: I've been needing a system for the home, and threw together a rather "ghetto" set-up to power an extra amplifier, with the signal coming from a soundbar, hopefully explained by the photo haha. Anyways, just today I received two 14" x 8' sheets of 1/2" plexiglass, and i totally want to construct an enclosure for my clarion 12", out of pure plexiglass. To anyone who has dealt with acrylic extensively: I could really use advice over the cutting, bonding, and finishing!!
  5. Okay everyone, Here is the beginning of a build that I have put more thought, blood, sweat, tears, and effort into than any other build I have ever done! I am always open for Constructive Criticism in any of my builds! I know most of you like to see goals/equipment lists in the first post. Goals: NOT cutting any corners on anything or "rigging" anything up Build something that can promote my dream of becoming an audio enthusiast and shop owner Build something with mids and highs that can keep up with the bass (Even though I never build anything geared towards numbers,) achieve 150+db on either the kick or windshield on music. Build an enclosure for the subs that can be played at full tilt, and rest a penny on the top of it and have it not move at all Expand my knowledge of fabrication and learn as much as I can. Edit: (forgot to add this) Not have ANY interior or exterior rattles at all. Equipment: 2011 Ford F150 4 door full cab 2 wheel drive with 6 inch lift kit, 20 inch rims, 35 inch tires, and a nice train horn 2 Rockford Fosgate Punch Pro tweeters 4 Rockford Fosgate Punch Pro 6.5 mids 4 Rockford Fosgate Punch Pro 8 mids 2 Crescendo Audio Symphony 800/4s 1 Sundown Audio NS-1 6 Sundown Audio SA 12s Loads of Sky High and Audio Technix 16 gauge, 12 gauge, 4 gauge, 1/0 gauge, and 2/0 gauge wire 3 Powersafe 190 ah batteries Singer 320 amp alternator Custom subwoofer enclosure Custom door pods Custom Battery rack Custom Amp rack Custom Ipad dash Custom center console Custom rear wall trim Custom trim around sub enclosure Clarion 7 band EQ Bluetooth Reciever ^there is probably a good amount that I dont remember lol Pictures to follow There are Soo many people to thank for helping bring this build to life, even the smallest bits of advice can help so much! For that, I say a big THANKYOU!
  6. Sup guys.. Well after a couple systems I actually feel like this one is "thread worthy" I finally have most of it, and should be playing before June 29th, for the Usaci show in Houston at House Of Sounds And before I go any further, I want to thank Kim at Sound Solutions in Houston, TX for the box, and my fiberglassed door panels, and the super hook up on the prices. They do some great work, and for someone who doesn't have the skills of doing it they are the right place to get anything done!

  7. This is build number 287938479786 for my roommates 2007 SRT8 Jeep lol. I wanted to do something with kerfing and plexiglass. This is what I came up with initially. thats the end result. I might add some leds around the plexi edge because this is what happens, but we shall see. I just finished it today! let me know what you think!
  8.'> Something I have always enjoyed integrating into builds or seeing used is back lit plexiglass. You can use it to light up a sponsors logo, or your own, or just to simply highlight an area of your build. In this video tutorial I show you Step by Step how you can use plexiglass and other techniques to create an awesome panel. The possibilities are endless, use it on an amp rack, use it on a sub box, use it on a console whatever! And yes, there are other ways this can be done, I just have found this way to work quite effectively! Lets learn how to make this:'> Enjoy the video and please leave me a comment letting me know what you think or if you have something to add!
