Ok....

If they total my truck, looking into a Avalanche......

SOOOO.....in the anticipation of the even or possibility of that happening, me being the caraudio freak i am, have built a box to house 6 x 18"ers. :naughty:

I love me some sketchup!

Tell me what ya think.

And should i go with XXX or MTs - might be a little tight for MTs, but if i DO go with MTs, keep in mind i could just close up 2 holes and get 4 x 18" MTs. I could then either play with 2 more, OR STILL get 6 XXXs in there!

Well... enjoy

The top piece is just a beauty board, can either b on or taken off.
The layer above the sub holes is 1" Plexiglass.
I plan to put mirrors on the area on he sides between the piece holding the plexi and the baffle.
With lights hidden below that same piece holding the plexi.

The beauty board isn't done. Going to either add MT or OmarvelouS at the bottom.

It's intevnal vol is about 33cuft.

I'm thinking about making the port swappable. But i'd atfirst and mostly tune it to 30s.

Will be braced using steel rods.

1" MDF, hoping to get some trupine(sp?) the lighter alternative to MDF.

The plexi will cost an ARM and 2 LEGS, but i won't leave my subs out in the open exposed to harsh environmental conditions.

Plus this setup should get me some prize money so will cover the cost what ya say eyy?

The quarter panel will have to be replaced. The frame is most likely bent, landed on it's side. The left front tire is slightly bent in.

The sunroof was left open by the tow guy, so the whole inside is wet. Do they usually replace water damaged interior? Not to mention the stereo, the power/heated seats, and what not could be damaged.

I mean those alone i don't think would add up to the fair market value, which is $24k. But my friend on the other hand thinks it will.

What u guys think?

EDIT: POST 900!! oh yea!

I ain't really going after anyone. I figga if i get an Avalanche....might as well utilize the space in a way that any car audio person who is also slightly crazy would.

So hopefully im raising the bar at the same time.

If i do get the ava, this should b funded and done by aug. Due to school mainly.

I might have to adjust the dimensions. I gotta get a hold of a valanche so i can take actual measurements n shi+.

So what yall think though , 4xMTs, 6xMTs, or 6xXXXs

well all that can be fixed. from the looks of it i doubt the frame is bent. but they will probly total it out, and if they dont it will take a body shop 3-4 weeks to get it done. as far as the sunroof being left open i would try to get something out of the tow company for that kuz the truck would be salvageable if the interior wasnt wet causing electrical problems. good luck on the totalin out

Yea i don't see it either. The WHOLE right side is flawless.

But i don't understand what's taking the insurance evaluation so long.

I guess we were both wrong.

Just got off the phone with them, and they have deemed it Totaled. I guess there was more frame damage then we thought.

I feel.....bad for feeling happy about this in a way. :uhoh: Didn't want to get stuck with those payments especially since it was in a wreack. No trade in or nothing, would have been shafted. I guess they felt the damage was over $30k.

Scratch the Avalanche idea, i'm thinking EXT. I'm no longer buying off the lot. Think i'm going to hit up some police auctions.

:veryhapp:
