First, I'd like to say thanks to everyone who voted me, there were some great builds and some guys putting up killer numbers. It's an honor to be here among the guys who I look up to. Also, thanks to RF and Q-logic for putting up some cool prizes!

Well, halfway through the 09 db drag season I ran into an equipment problem and did a mini-rebuild to keep me active in the sport. My goal was a 139.9 bassracer that delivered the lows.

hey, if you ever get a chance dude, get your hands on some L5's and burp them on the meter. All our cars at swat have actually been louder on the L5's then L7's. but nice clean setup

Nice, Solid build. Kicker can't go wrong with those subs!

Thanks man! A few people on this forum have heard this setup and agree they get low and sound clean.

What's good Kurt, thanks! If I can find some 5's cheap enough I might give it try.....a couple people have suggested strapping my T2000s on these for a burp lol

Congratulations my Friend! Well done man!

Now maybe you can show me how to do some cool mid kick pods :)

Thanks man! I have a few pics of the pods build in my other pb account that I'll be putting back up here when I get mah bandwidth back.

Also, today this did a 148.5/music in NSPL SUV hardcore (drivers door open, mic in the kick) :8)

I've been slacking with this thread lol. Here's some more pics!

Modded the RF ParaPunch bass EQ's LED to red to match my interior LED conversion. I liked how thehoe92 mounted his, so I will be doing something similar.

Deadened the liftgate using Second Skin Damplifier - not only did this take care of 99% of the residual noise from the liftgate, it also netted a cool .2db on the TL!!!

Used some Damplifier on the inside surface of the outer D-pillars to help with the buzzing

Mounted a stinger voltmeter in the dash bezel.

No pics of the bezel installed yet, at the moment I'm working on the hardest part of the LED conversion, the manual HVAC controller. I get them lined up perfectly, but the bass shifts them out of alignment. Ugh.

Damage report lol

I still have quite a bit of work to do, lots of deadening and some odds and ends to take care of :8)
