Father and Son Project: 2002 Yukon - Rockford Fosgate Sound System Install - ROUND 2 - NEW Amp Rack installed - FIRED UP! page 23


Recommended Posts

Well the time has come. Antheny (my son) is finally ready to upgrade his system in his ride. I know he has wanted it from day one but i am always busy and he was always in school during the day. So now that he is graduated high school (great grades BTW) we have more time to do stuff together. He has been helping out a TON at the shop so i decided to help him out with some gear. God dammit my name is Steve Meade who am i not to help my kid get some beat with the resources i have? Anyhow, nothing is free here, it cost me some $ but not too bad considering i am a dealer now. Anyway, we aren't going to go ape shit. We are aiming for a nice clean install with some bump. Over time, if the crazy bass bug hits him, he can upgrade all he wants. I think what we picked out will be a nice, well rounded first system for him...and for anyone if you ask me.

Also, we plan on making the box look nice in the back. Nothing to wild. I want HIM to build this and we are going to start out with the basics. I had him open up the book and we are building from recommended specs for this first enclosure. We are going to use 4" Tube ports with a nice round over on them.

Anyway, i LOVE showing him how to do stuff and then watching him get it done on his own. He did 99% of what you see in the pics below. I will post updates as we get more progress done.

(1) Sony CD / Bluetooth H.U.

We used 1" MDF for the box.

We did a 1/4" recess. Now if these were SMD's, some Big ass DC's or something like that, of course we would double wall and all of that. But P3 12's aren't that heavy and there is still 3/4" of MDF under them. AND a brace. It is FINE. Had a few dip-wads on FB complain that the box looked "weak" but honestly, this box is solid as hell. We did that small recess on the subs to give it a nice clean look but it didn't effect the rigidity at all.

I think the hand me downs are the brand new rockford equipment lol.

That's why they don't deliver.

Yer ass better go sit along the side of the road and wait.

You can't expect them to travel up some dirt road in a hick / back woods town. Thats how horror movies start :D

I explain things very simply and use analogies in terms of Pickles, and grape drink, pool noodles and jackhammers...if you can't put 2 and 2 together there man, There simply is not much more I can do.
