Welcome to the SMD forum!

Recommended Posts

So I'm just starting my build for the 4th time. How many times have you just continued to iterate on the same vehicle? Haha! So everything now is ordered. Disclaimer: I am not building this myself. The shop EliteAudio EA is doing this for me. 

To give you a taste of what's to come, this is the final product and oh boy does it sound amazing.

Wow, that box was a beast. 

tldr; I gave it away when I sold my subs. 

Long story.

I remember paying $20.00 daily in gas, on my daily because of that box. I got rid of it maybe 3 or 4 years ago? I didn't keep it long. Maybe 3 months. I paid too much in gas. I wanted to go small on my, on my daily and got a some crescendo subs and amps.. but it just sit in a box. I redid my Doors and A Pillars after that box but never finished the full system, until maybe 2 months ago when I did a DSP, and sub, and amp rack.

About a month ago I got a Pathfinder and kind of went all out on rebuilding my new system, on a system I just "completed" after a few years of nothing.

 

So this is where it sits today.. and here we go on this rebuild. Later, you will see pictures of everything getting removed from this. Down to the plastic and some CNC action going on.

So the good news is that this looks good. However; there are some bad news.

So update on some of the progress. The Double din is installed with a new reverse camera.

 

The front door panels, removed the previous work.

Working on the new amp racks, for the inside part. Not the beauty panel. While that's going on might as well do the front and rear bumber
