So here it is,Dont comment on this thread ( I think roscoe is gonna lock it anyways) but anyways, this is gonna be the build log thread of my truck that you can come to and see everything without any of the chitta chatta in it.Just pictures and my comments mostly.If you want to comment you can do so here

http://www.stevemeadedesigns.com/board/ind...showtopic=37106

The reason for this is because i know i see alot of build logs that are really long and it kinda discurages me to even look at it because its so long and cluttered.So hopefully this will make it easy to view and see everything

ENJOY

So i guess ill go ahead and start a small thread on my tahoe that im having done.First of all I am not doing the work myself,The guys at ultimate autosounds in Jackson,Ms are.Ive always been into sytems and loud music since i started driving (15 and im 24 now)but when i got my tahoe i really didnt think i was going to do any big "bumpin sytem",just replace the deck and new mids and highs and be done with it.Anyways.One thing let to another and my competitive nature got the best of me.I had it done once about 3 months ago and it couldnt have turned out any worse.Its in the process of getting totally redone now.

In the pictures below will be of what i had before getttin it "redone" is this

8 sets of rd alpha 6.5 inch components

4 rd alpha 15s

3 ohio generator alternators

1 quad module missing link module (soon to be quad alts in the future)

2 rd audio D9s (for subs)

7 group 31 batteries

1 kenwood excelon 25th anniversery cd player with navigation and music keg

2 rd 55.4s for mids and highs (need more power yes i know)

3 runs of 0guage from front to rear(will be 4)

1 tripple alt bracket from irragi

Sorry I forgot to tell the new system that is getting done as we discuss this.

Basically the same as above but a few more things will be added/changed

Same kenwood excelon xxv cdplayer/nav/music keg

Ill be running 4 DCPOWERINC 270SPs (special purpose) alternators from dcpowerinc.com (thanks rob)and also his bracket that is so f'n strong you could pull the motor out of your truck with it.(pics coming)

4 runs of 0 guage power wire from front to back

1 missinglinkaudio.com custom switchable from 14.8 to 15.3 quad alternator module

8 sets of rd audio alpha 6.5 inch components (newer ones will have charcol color woven cones)

4 rdaudio 85.4s (for mids and highs)

4 rdaudio D9s

4 rdaudio 15'' HEAVYWEIGHTS

11-12 group 31 batteries

New crazy strong box with subs pointing up and ports back.

3 layers of hushmat on roof,rear doors,rear side panels,and 2 layers on the floor,firewall and 4 front doors.

New custom fully fiberglassed door panels (so it will all be flowing nicely instead of just pods stuck on the door) with crossovers viewable in some areas

custom made fiberglassed a pillars and kick panels

full suede headliner

door panels and kicks and a pillars will be wrapped in leather with a few blue suede inserts

the seats will be recoverd with catskinz seatcovers this summer (after i get all the system stuff out of the way)

I think that is about it right this second that i can think of.If i think of anything else or if you all cant think of any suggestions let me know and i will try to take it into consideration.All help and good ideas is appreciated.
