Well a few years later I'm back at it again. 2012 I took the system out because my mother's car shit itself right before I left the country so I let her drive it for the year. Didn't do too much through 2013 but now I'm craving again. All I have done so far is upgrade the 5.25s in the doors to 6.5s. I'm not 10 minutes from a wood shop anymore so I don't really know when I'm going to build my new box for the subs. Anybody around Pensacola, FL who would be willing to help? On a side note.... I forget how to edit my topic title :(

Very nice attention to detail sir. Also really nice equipment. Kinda shocked you don't have a 4ch, better mids/highs, and a dd1 cc1 on the way..... But I'll be tuned in sir.

Thanks I fixed it.

Thank you! I do have a 4 channel. I have an older JBL 4ch. Once I become brave enough to cut my panels and make door pods I will buy a nice set of components and a nice 4ch. I also own a dd1 and absolutely love it! Solid investment right there. I have been thinking about a few more but haven't pulled the trigger yet

I'd also reccomend any Smd meter. Also, using the cc1 to set my filters instead up of using headunit filters to HPF my mids made a huge difference. I'd highly reccomend the cc1. It also helped me set my subsonic on the subs. I found out I had my subsonic below 20hz instead of up near 25hz where it should be for my application.

Keep up the good work bro. Again, very solid and clean. I love it when people don't take short cuts. Also props for the gf helping. Keeper for sure

Goodies arrived! Arc audio 5.25 components. I think I will try to make a kick panel. I don't know what I'm going to do with the second set yet. Arc is having a 60% off sale so they were only 60$ a set. I have had my eye on Arc for a while and have always wanted to try a set of their speakers out well now is my chance :)

Well I tried fiberglassing. Removed the center console so I can install my voltmeter and I thought it would be a great learning experience before I cut my door panels and throw in my Arc components. Emphasis on the learning experience. I think the filler looks like shit so I'm going to have to do a lot of sanding and more filler. I guess I used too much hardener because it dried up in less than a minute before I could smooth it out better. Still fun doing it though!

Progress has been slow I have only been working on it for less than an hour a day...and that's with grabbing tools, setting up, and clean up.

I installed the 6.5 before so freaking nice sounding..enxepesive and take little power sound loud.

And if you ever want sell those havocs let me know!!!

Good to hear. I have an old old JBL 4 chan for the Arcs but I really want to upgrade once the funds come in. I was looking at CT sounds 4 chan a bit...I'm going to grab another XS before anything else though.

And ok I will keep you in mind for the havocs because I'm going to remove the rear quarter storage which will give me at least 3 more cubic feet of space. If so I will up size to 18s more than likely
