Lexus IS-F Sound System install - Custom SMD VM-1/OM-1/TM-1f Dash Piece (update page 71)


Recommended Posts

What size PVC pipe was that?

My truck has 3 round openings all in a row like that for the AC controls and I was thinking about moving them to put in some SMD meters.

And that finish is super clean. Looks like it was done in a body shop. Did you have it sprayed next door?

2" i think. I didn't measure it but i believe it is 2". And yes, i had it shot next door :)

Looks damn good. Better than damn good.

Saying "Great Job" is such a understatement for this build but it's all i got. So keep up the high standards.

One question, have you ever ran your system with only 1 set of tweeters?

It seems to me that the T5's tweets can get much louder than the woofers. Maybe 1 set of tweets would have no problem keeping up with 2 or 3 sets of woofers. If 1 set of tweets would keep up you could possible get a little clearer imagining. Just a thought.

thanks! :)

but why are you telling me i should remove a set of tweeters? LOL If your tweeters were louder then your woofers you probably had them to close to your earhole and that is all you were hearing. My setup doesn't scream in my ear. They are positioned well and tuned correctly. What are you talking about "clearer imaging", you never even heard this before. Thanks anyway for the advice but ill pass.

Holy Shit Meade has liked one of my posts and responded.

Sorry, laugh if you want to but I'm entitled to feeling star struck if I want.

Congrats on that Steve! It's cool to be recognized like that no matter what level you're on. I'll have to go pick one up--it's been two decades since I've bought a magazine.

I've seen the build and it's insane. Article says you used Night Shades? I thought you used tinted clear on your lenses like we do.

Static drops are my bag.

i did on the Tahoe - but on this one i just used a few light shades to make it "not as red" but not blacked out either. I think it's perfect and it is holding up great. Thanks! :)
