Well, I have never gotten into the audio fourms, but decided to check one out.

I have a 2006 Scion tC with alot of visual and go fast mods. I am big on the show scene and am working on finishing up my system.

I do all the work myself, and am self taught.

Pioneer D3 with reverse Camera
Alpine Type-R SPR-17LS 6-3/4''
(2) Alpine Tpye R 12" DVC 4 ohm subs
(2) Alpine MRP M450 Mono Amps
(1) Alpine MRP F450 4 channel Amp
Tsunami Battery Terminals
Various Wiring (need to upgrade all wiring)
Custom Foberglass trunk that I did myself

The trunk is a work in progress. My first try at fiberglass. Turned out pretty good. Air tight and strong. Been working on the amp rack and cover to make it look perfect.

I have tons of pictures of the buildup from empty stock trunk to what you see, if anyone is interested.
Advice and opinions wanted!!!





Oh and the ride:

rims are hideous. car isn't too bad. maybe would've dropped the two tone black a little lower. otherwise, i think it was a good idea. oh and are those altezza lights????????

Aside from the paint job, both the set up and the car look VERY nice.
Oh and the rear lights gotta go, but keep up the good work

The tailights are about to go. They are the TYC that toyota offers. Dont match anymore at all.

As far as sound, it sounds pretty decent. i am huge into shows, so the box is a tad small in order to make room for everything else. I didnt want a huge square box in the trunk. But even without it small, it hits extremely hard and flexes all the body panels.
Hit a 149.7 at an NCCA event. Not to shabby.

I have vids of autocrossing if thats what someone ment by vids.

Great job on your enclosure. I'd swap the Rs for something classier; a nice, blank dustcap aluminum coned woofer.

I think you can do way better on the wheel choice.

everything else looks fine. and the two tone is not bad.

Im surprised that people dont like the wheels. I love them. would never change them.

Under the hood, supercharger :)

This isnt just a show car, I autocross it, and go to the drag strip as well.
NO STREET RACING FOR ME. Everything is done legal and by the books. Car shows saurdays, autocross Sundays:

I thought about it. I have the stock wheels that i could use.

But I kinda like the idea, that I can pull good times with the car idrive daily. Alot of people build a pure street car, or a pure road racer. or some people have a daily driven car that they strip out and add slick to and run the strip and claim a good time. But thats not the same car as they drive everyday.

I like knowing I can roll off the street to a car show, then roll onto a race course and hang with the big boys.
