  1. whats up smd! its been a good while. feels good to be getting back into car audio, the hobby that made me into a commercial/industrial electrician. the last system i had was in a 98 oldsmobile intrigue with a single 15" in the trunk. first was obsidian audio on a hifonics brz1200, then went with a skar vvx 15 after that. ive had other equipment before those, played around with jl, sundown, audioque, t3 audio compnents, hertz speakers... so that was like 5 years ago. had to sell everything because we were in need of money. our first child was going to be born soon and i was the main person bringing in income working at ace hardware. well, now, thanks to the love of car audio, i signed up for an electrical apprenticeship program here in california and started my career as a general electrician. needed more than 12v sparks in my face lmao. finished the 5 years as an apprentice, took the state exam and passed! officially a certified general electrician. i currently work for anderson pacific as a journeyman electrician in the bay area. but anyways, enough of my history. i want to build! so i have somewhat an idea of what im looking to get for my 2012 honda accord. i commute a lot! ha so this will mainly be a daily setup. maybe compete just for giggles in the near future. because of my job and not owning/commuting in a pickup i need my trunk space. all of it haha. and also would like to have my spare tire easily accessible. so that being said i am willing to sacrifice my rear seats for the sub(s). im only keeping one seat available for a car seat but the rest will be used to fit a box. so i have something like 25"w 24"h 18"d to work with. i already have a pioneer deh-80prs installed and replaced the stock front speakers with a set of skar TX65C and the rear with a pair of skar fsx 6.5s. yup, i think im going with skar all around. i had good experience with their sub and components in the past. and theyre very reasonably priced for what you get. unless someone can persuade me to go with others lol... i will be running the stock alt for now (130a) thinking about getting a mechman later on. 1-xs power d3400r for the front 1-xs power xp3000 for the back with that im hoping to supply a skar rp2000.1 and possibly a sk100.4 already stated what i have for mids n highs a single zvx15 ported @ 33hz or 2- evl12s @ 32hz (i know go with the 2 12s more cone area.. but idk something about having a 15..) will be all sky high wiring and sound deadening (had some left over knu deadening from prior build that i put on the front doors.) big 3 of course w/ 1/0 and im sure there will be more as we go on. theres always more lol so what you think? just something simple for daily. my old lady is giving me a budget of 3k lol less is better tho. any recommendations, suggestions, comments, thoughts, some schooling would be grrreat! heres a simple box design i was messing around with on torres and sketchup. 4cu ft after all displacements including fiberglass. tuned @ 33hz. will be 3- 4" aero's thats it haha sorry didnt get a chance to get any pics of the speakers. i will next time around when i open up the door panels again. same for the rear deck. thanks guys...

  3. I bought this 2006 yukon brand new back in 05. After about 3 years decided to start modding it ( after it was out of factory warranty ). Started off with some LED tails, then lowered it 3/5 with djm suspension , and afterwards threw some 22" Boss 330 wheels on it. At this point, just the factory bose system. First system equipment: 1. Pioneer AHV4100dvd head unit 2. 15" Kicker L7 d2 in a prefab 3. Knu Konceptz 1/0 cca wire 4. Rockford Power 1000 25 to life 5 channel ( loved this thing ) Birthsheet readings were channel 1-4=110rms per side at 4 ohm/ sub channel 933 rms at 1 ohm Went to my first show and was convinced by the other competitors to meter it. 141.0 at 41hz I had the rockford running the factroy bose till they blew. Once they blew, I installed some orion cobalts ( hella broke at the time ). When I decided to upgrade the mids and highs again, I rewired it with stinger 12g for the mids and stinger 16g for the tweeters. I went with the CDT CL-62 pro pack. This included 6.5 componets with addition upstage tweeter and some coaxs. For the rear doors, I had seen some people drill the connecter to fit the wire, or even eliminate the connecter completely and just hard wire the rear doors. I decided to "notch" the connecter to fit the 12g on the side. I lined the side of the connecter opeing in the door with some thick felt tape I got from work ( when doing wiring repairs on cars). I rocked this system for a couple of years. Really loved that amp, and at the time did not know the capabilites of that amp ( running active ). I ended up selling the amp and the L7 along with some other parts I had laying around to fund a new build. I had already installed a XS3400 up front for my primary battery.
  4. I've had a log over on MAF for a bit, just wanted to get most of the shit done before I brought it over here. As of right now, 12:27 AM on 6/6/2014, the box is done but has to be disasembled to be put in the car. All the pictures I'm posting is leading up to this point. Alt is coming soon. Still haven't fixed my Zapco 2 channel, might say fuck it and ditch it. Equipment List 2001 Volvo S40 1.9t fully loaded auto. (leather, sunroof, heated seats, blah blah) A spool or so of SkyHigh Car Audio 2/0 CCA. some 1/0 SkyHigh A couple SkyHigh fuse holders. XS POWER! D4800 XS POWER! XP2000 (with plans for another) Singer Alternators 220a (coming soon) JBL MS-52c components Tantric Sounds HD 15 w/ SkyHigh 8 ga direct leads Sundown SAZ-2000d (thanks OBI for the killer deal) Zapco ZVX-300x2 that is fucking broke and may end up not being used Clarion CZ502 head unit Ugly little piece of shit but god damn I love it. Somewhat gets bitches. Because bitches love leather and sun roofs. So ran some SkyHigh 2/0 and did some of my big 3. Still have to do the Alt->Batt and Engine->Ground. This took a shit load longer than it should have for a few reasons: beer, my drunk dad, my drunk buddies, and working in a shop 3 blocks from the worst gang infested apartment complex in town. Never stayed past 11. (fucking tillmycasketdrops came for 5 minutes then left lmao) Also the lead acid battery is now a XS4800. Box time, I guess. But first, time to put that XP3000 in. Plus an amp on the back seat. Because bitches love that shit. It's actually riveted down now at a different angle. Triple baffle, ftw. Counter sinking screws, ftw. And all assembled. Just gotta take the fucker apart, titebond 2 the shit out of everything, then screw it back together inside my trunk. Yay. Plus do ports.
