Father & Son Project: '02 Yukon - a Rockford Fosgate Sound System Install - Update: ROUND 2! ALL NEW STUFF! U.B.L. (all pics no chat)

Recommended Posts

Today's update - It's done!


Headunit relocated to stock cassette deck location.

HVAC Relocated to the center console. The plug with 24 wires on it was extended about 3-4 feet. That is 48 solder joints (with heat shrink). I made Antheny do it. He is good at soldering so i feel safe with him doing it. While he was doing that, i started making room for the Sony deck. Also, the Sony has built in USB on the face AND a wire on the inside. It is designed to be a hideaway spot for an ipod since it isn't a CD player. Pop the face down and there is a spot to plug in and hide whatever MP3 player will fit. It is the PERFECT place to plug the ipad into so we were able to get sound through the lightning cable and usb. Plus it charges good too! I had to tear the deck apart, find the wire and re-route it to the outside of the unit so we had access for the ipad.


anyhow, here are the rest install pics. Hope you like! Youtube video probably tomorrow. I am tired!

I don't just make stickers with my vinyl plotter. I have used it several times for templates and (behind the acrylic) covers/openings. This here is just to keep paint out of the 1" 3/4 hole for the VU-Din Needles to shine through. I don't want to see any circuit board so i shot it from the back. From the front you can't even tell it was painted. That's the beauty of doing these like this. Had i painted the front it would have looked like hell.

This usb cable used to be behind the front face plate, inside the unit. I took it apart and re-routed the wire to the outside so we could access the wire for the ipad.

This is a pretty good spot.

my favorite thing in the world is to teach my son how to do something and watch him do it himself. Today we did rear brake pads and some 2" drop springs to level the ass end out. Nothing too drastic, but i had the springs in my shop for YEARS....so it was a no brainer while we had the vehicle on the lift. :)

Antheny was asking me about a new alternator for his Yukon and i told him i would "look into it" for him. Instead, i got him one for his birthday. Does he NEED 370 amps? NO. Will he need it later? who knows, but he will be ready if he does! We are hoping to install it tomorrow!

In the meantime here is a few pics of this beauty!

It might seem easier to build when you have a CNC but the fact is, the products i started producing with it are selling so good it is hard to make time to work on what we love the most, our systems!

We are caught up (for the moment) so decided it was time to start upgrading Antheny's yukon.


This is the plan:

(2) Rockford Fosgate T2500.1bdcp

(1) Rockford Fosgate T600.4 on the highs.

(1) Rockford Fosgate 3sixty.3


Woofers will be:

(1) Rockford Fosgate T3 19" (Temporary because it is MINE not his!! haha)


Soon to be:

(4) SMD Mini Series 15" Subs (A T2500.1 per pair).



I want to be able to get him 100% up and running with the new stuff, play with the 19" some more and then just do the woofer swap later and be pain free as possible.


This is where we are at so far.



Designed on scratch paper, input into the computer...cut on the CNC.
