this is a nostalgia build first subs ever bought always ran them until i got my DCs  favorite subs i had was the bubble dome stokers loud and sounded nice. still run the home speakers i bought in 1996 vs100 ..   Not sure when im going to do a full build just starting this so I don't have to start it later... not sure what subs I'm going to use, but for now until i decide I'm going to be using my dc lvl3 m1 12"s  didn't want to go full bridge or a class d for mids and highs but since i dont know how long im going to run this equipment I went cheapish

That will be a fun build.  I've been keeping my eye out for a late 80s or early 90s Fox Body 5.0 Mustang hatchback that I could do a period accurate nostalgia build.  That would be the car I lusted after in my teens, and would be awesome to get one in decent shape, maybe do some light restoration  and do a period accurate system build.  I fell down a rathole on ebay last night looking at the old CV Stroker subs, old PPI amps stuff like that.

 

Can't wait to see the build come together!

I want the classic pro stroker subwoofer but out of my price range for a nostalgia build looking at the Vegas since they still have the red surround…. Or the regular stroker and just have red accents not sure yet I have company coming for the month of July so not sure when I’ll get started

My worth nothing opinion, nostalgia build, my vote is for the red surround. 100%. Nothing says old school Cerwin Vega (at least to me) more than those red surrounds

I can remember hacking together a box for a vega with the red surround in my teens, it looked like total crap, but was so cool at the same time.  I was looking at the Ecstacy subs on the Legends of Car Audio ebay store with the purple surrounds.  It would be cool to do a 90s bandpass for a pair of those similar to what Soundman did in his son's car.

Yeah probably going with a pair of the Vegas but to me the classic strokers and red surrounds is both nostalgia to me
