Halloween Update 10/31/14 Hotdog's F-150 Build log ((Hertz HSK 165xl's are here))

Recommended Posts

This build is expected to move slow.

My plans for this build are to keep it small with a little bump and some clarity, but do it right and keep it clean. I want every thing done in a way that I can easily return the vehicle to factory stock.
My thoughts on equipment
Items I have
Items that I still need to work on acquiring
Sub Amp - Undecided but I know it will be Rockford. Either a P300-1 or one of those new PBR500X1 they bothe do 300 rms @ 2ohm
The Box - Still undecided on the design but have been sketching up a few ideas.
Speaker wiring - I will be on the look out for some 12 gauge OFC
Power and Ground - Although overkill I will be saving for the Rockford Fosgate RFK1D DUAL AMP 1/0 AWG Amplifier WIRING KIT
Door Speakers - Still debating a nice set of components for the front doors.
Kick panels - Wanting to do a Mid bass driver in one of those Q-form kick panels that they already make for the F-150

Still trying to recover financially from my wife's trimalleolar fracture on her left leg. Thankfully she did heal well and is back to work now. That being said I have been collecting a little here and a little there when ever I had some spare change. Now on with the build and a few pictures.

This truck was equipped with the factory subwoofer under the rear seats. You will also see that I got the really nice floor mats to protect the carpet :) .

And the very first and only thing I have done so far is change out the factory radio for an Alpine CDA-9887.

Now in another thread located here.

http://www.stevemeadedesigns.com/board/topic/191813-massive-audio-summo-64/

I was thinking about trying these new Massive Audio Summo 64 subs. They are the prefect size to keep everything under the seat. The good news is I received them in the mail today. and here are a few pictures of the SUMMO 64 made by Massive.

Then on to some vehicle deadening material. Did some reading enough to make your head split open that is :) . I came to a decision and purchased the following item.

KnuKonceptz Kno Knoise Sound Deadening Door Kit 14sq ft 80mil

This is just a start I will have to get more. I am just plugging away a little at a time.

Well, what's it going to be? B pillar wall? Walk-through? Blow-through?

This will be an Under the back seat little bitty two 6.5" Subs build. I already have a wall and a hatch build. Now time for a little bump build :)

those builds are linked in my Sig if you want to look at them. They are both still banging to this day my wife drive's the Equinox daily and the Mountaineer is just a weekend warrior vehicle now. The Mountaineer was doing 152+ at the dash on last meter and 153+ in the kick on 3000 rms. The Equinox is doing a 145 with 2 12's on a T1000 in the cargo area and my wife is telling me she wants more she is use to it now.

That is another reason for this build. When you have two vehicles over 145 a factory radio is just not going to cut it.
