"The Pimp Van" Build - New Batt's/Subs Pics Pg. 5


Recommended Posts

You get a van for free, so what do you do with it?

Fuck shit up!

And by fucking shit up I mean putting a good system in there.

So here's my build log, I'm doin' this on a budget, so I'm not gonna get SOTM or anything but, it will get interesting.

Here's the van:

Looks good man... Can't wait to get to work to work on my Astro i have in storage. Granted I'll be running a bit more products than you, but you can't go wrong with an Astro no matter what route you're going IMO. Plus they are tanks as far as running basically forever and being damn reliable.
