alright guys, I think its time for another meet. I know that i wanna meet a few other bassheads. and the setup should be done withn the week, pending the return of my car from the shop.

I was thinking a sat and i do have access to a TL if you all want and even a couple places to meet, so just wondering if anyone was interested and when and all the goodies.

I'm SOOOOOOOOOO down for a meet. Seems like everyone dropped off the face of the planet. Even if no one else shows I'm down for a build "camp" to work on your install!

I'll be there for sure. I'm in the process of rebuilding my system right now. I just sold my Planet Audio 2250amp which was currently powering my BTL. So for the next few days I'll be using a 275r thats doing around 1500rms.

I'm looking to buy this RF Power T30001bd for only $500 thats gonna do around 3800rms @ 1 ohm from this guy up in Queek Creek. That should get my fully loaded 18" BTL moving like crazy!

I also need to get a 300amp alt ordered pretty soon too and install another yellow top in the back.

Look forward to the meet.

*edit* I forgot to add I'm also going to be installing a Pioneer Avic N1 that's been sitting around 4 ever into my blazr next week.

I hope it doesn't skip like my current Premier 680p does.

I'd probably make a run to phoenix if the date worked out. My set up should be near 100% in a short while.

what days work for you guys, weekend probably? it doesnt matter to me really, lol i just want to meet :)

oh and dont worry about the system beat. I might be getting rid of the scion sson and getting a truck, and can we say blow through, lol so my system might be in shambles as well.

Tempe
04-10-2007, 04:24 AM
**** I might just say double blow-through with my truck too!!! I don't think I got the bawlz to do it anyway :) I don't have a set schedule, so as long as we plan this some time in advance I'm good to go whenever. I usually get one or both weekend days off, so I can probably switch with someone if I am scheduled that day.

Right now my install is not show-worthy by any means. I'm right now finalizing my upcoming install. It should look much better when done!

HitManSE
04-14-2007, 03:37 AM
Ok, then lets try to focus on may 5th.

Ill suggest sometime in the afternoon would work best for most of us. Say around 5pm (possibly later?)

As for location, thats still very open to discussion. Pavillions, should work fine. I think meeting up before heading to pavillions would work best. Reason being its usally crowded at pavillions on the weekend, and spotting everyone is going to be a pain among a few hundred cars.

Where to meet up before pavillions, personally that doesnt matter. Someone mentioned a church where the last meet gathered at. Location of which is?

the church is at Miller and Shea roughly, but we'd need to talk to John about that first
it'd also be a good idea to have the meet before the pavillions because they don't like people playing loud bass there
and the 5th works for me

there's a dead link on page 1 http://chroniccaraudiosucks.com that used to have pics. Its probably down due to a settlment of some kind. Wayback machine can't find it (or i **** at the internet).

The short version is the shop was told not to drive a perfectly restored 58 (chevy?) they did anyway and crashed into a wall. Claimed the "brakes failed" :rolleyes:

Update 4/15:

I just got done running some more 1/0 gauge, re-made all my grounds and installed another yellow top optima in the back. I also ran 1/0 gauge directly to my t30001bd.

I set the gains to the amp just a tad under 1/2 and with these electrical upgrades I hardly drop that much in voltage and the setup sounds insainly loud.

Wednesday I get my 260 amp alt and that will keep my system running stron at 14.4 during full tilt.

I also did some sound deadening on the rear hatch and sealed up the rear pillars so there isn't as much vibrations.

The only big issue is that my Pioneer Premier DEH-P680 can't handle this much bass and skips like no other when playing anything with a good bass line at full tilt, but don't worry I've got a fix for that :D This saturday I'm installing a Pioneer Avic-N1 GPS system. I'm pretty sure that it will handle the bass better. If not It looks like Im using the AUX in and will hafta switch over to ipod.

Lets get some poeple to meet up this weekend, hopefully Im able to function after 4/20 so I can get the GPS installed early saturday morning.

Here's some pics of the t30001bd that I just got...
http://www.caraudio.com/forum/showthread.php?t=227248

I'll take pics of my setup once I get the N1 installed and box finished in gloss black..... or maybee black pleather which is much less time consuming.

04-24-2007, 06:05 PM
If my stuff is done (or close) i plan to show. The deciding factor is if i swap my Hu to the 7100 that i havn't bought yet. Without it my setup sounds like poo. Everything else i want to do is just cosmetic.

05-01-2007, 10:30 PM
Bah so far not good. Dealer called today and the guy said the he put in a new alt and battery and it's fixed (I guess he means it's charging and running at the proper voltage). Though my radiator fans will still not kick on by them self. They can make them come on with Tech II though. So befor I pick it up to trailer it home I'll have him check the ECT sensor and the fan relays. I hate new vehicles.

HitManSE
05-01-2007, 11:15 PM
I thought your GTO was an 05? regardless if the problem is your fans not coming on, I dont see why they would change the battery and alternator to fix it :confused: Definetly have them chk the coolant temp sensor to see if its still working.

I hate stupid elec problems.

Alpine CDA-9815
05-02-2007, 12:29 AM
The car is a 05. The problem started when the check alternator light came on... the car was not charging and only running at 11.2 with the car running. Which is why they replaced the alt and battery. I'll have them check the temp sensor and everything. The fans should kick on when the AC is turned on, which is the first thing I will have them check.

Electrical problems are the worst IMO.

Acidburn
05-02-2007, 03:07 AM
Alpine, it'd be awesome to see your car, but even if it's not running, you're more than welcome

i looked around the area today and i think Moeur Park is the place to have it
it's at the intersection of Curry and Lake View in Tempe
i don't know how busy it'll be on Saturday, but if it's busy, we can just meet up there and caravan to a new spot

or does anyone know of a better place?

Anywas on Washington they are doing hella construction and one day the graded the road making it very rough, on one point of the road where they stopped grading it there was a 2" tall curb. Anyways I hit that about 5 days ago in my blazer and I broke both my motor mounts, cracked my Y-Pipe and cracked my radiater. No biggie though got it all replaced in about 45 minutes. Now i just have to get that y-pipe welded so my truck doesnt so like ****.

They have now fixed that spot of the road that they were working on so its only like a .5" bump....

Meh we'll see. My driver side fuel rail is leaking BAD. Stupid dealer cracked it trying to tighten up the fittings instead of letting them be or taking them off and using teflon tape then tightening them up. Oh well they did replace my alt and battery for me when they did not have to... $956 alt... bah. Oh well I'm getting a good deal on some FAST fuel rails and braided hoses.


He just didn't want to race me :(
And what do you have to race?

It's a good spot, about 30 parking spots nice and open and there's shade :D I just checked it out today.

My sub (http://www.teamtoxicbass.com/~tuan/Pictures/BigSPL15_1.jpg) is almost here....

I'm making my box tomorrow night. Anyone have any pointers on pouring/mixing resin for this rounded corner, I've never used the stuff before....

would a piece of 4" PVC pipe be about the right size?
just getting that curve freehand with cloth/mat and resin probably won't be too easy

Ya I plan on using a 4" or 6" PVC pipe if I can find it to use as a form. Have you used resin before?

This is what I plan on trying to do...

if you pack that open space with some FG cloth and some saw dust or something, it'd probably work
or you could 'glass the actual piece of PVC in there

Was thining pretty much the same thing.

Well I hope to try and make it out there, I may be alittle late. If one of you could PM me your # in case I am and you have to move to a different part of the park, etc. Then I can also get some opinions about the system layout I have planned, which I plan on starting to build the boxes to see if they will work/fit after I get the car back.

11.8v @ idle ***** man, hopefully you can find a way to get a quick fix by tomorrow. What kind of alt was it?

Tell me about it, it used to run anywere from 13.8-14.1 at idle. I wish I could just pick up a 200amp alt but at short notice, thats not exactly possible. The alt was OEM. Its the only part of my elec system I hadnt really upgraded.

I just picked up an OEM re-man from the stealership along with 2 belts (might as well) but we're so **** busy at work I dont have time to get this done.


I feel your pain, hopefully your alt is not $950ish. lol

Yeah, gotta love electical issues. At least I found out what mine was right away. Started the car, battery and brake lights were both on (9/10 times that = bad alt), put the voltmeter on just to be sure.

Price wasnt anywere near $950 :laugh:

I'm not anywhere near complete as i hoped to be. My whole set up is still running off the fuzzy, peaky factory HU. I've been trying to buy a HU from a local shop for a week and a half, but they can't get it. Since when to shops turn down business?
