System is going into a 1992 Buick Lesabre. Its going to consist of:
(1) Audioque HDC315 D1
(1) Lanzar Opti2000d @.5ohm
(1) 3.6 cube box @ 33 hz w/ 48sq inches of port
20sq feet of Damplifier in trunk
Some Knu 1/0
Tsunami 4-1 reducers for direct 1/0 to amp

From my last setup I already have kicker 1/0, dB electrical 200amp alternator w/ Big 3, and a Pioneer Premier DEH-480MP head unit.

Pictures of course.

Box plans ( one for my box and the other was for 3 12" Type R's for a guy locally i thought i'd include that build too)

20sq feet of Damplifier ( did 3 layers on trunk lid, whatever was left I put where i could in the trunk )

Here are pics of my whip and the Air Lift 1000 air leveling kit i just installed. For 84.99 its a great solution to sag in the rear suspension, especially when your putting a trunk full of car audio. Excellent product.

That is all I have for now but the subwoofer i was told by DJ was shipped on wednesday ( i havnt recieved tracking number at all still ) and the knu wire is on its way as well. As soon as those arrive I can wire everything up and be on my way to make some videos. Stay tuned

Looks good. Does your trunk still rattle pretty good with 3 layers? I may put another layer on my lid as well. I just have one, but I did the entire trunk, fully covered with Second Skin Damp and fatmat.

My car has 175,000 km so roughly 110,000miles its running well actually i have had it almost a year now. I bought with 165,000 km and haven't had to replace anything yet. Runs very well. I bought for 2200 CDN. The paint is nice. There is some rusting in the rear wheel wells but the car is 16 years old. I have no complaints. About the rattling, I hope that it doesn't rattle as bad. Without the mat only the license plate and seal area rattled. The actual trunk was not that bad to my surprise. I really hope that mat makes a difference. I still have to get something for the license plate but i am interested the difference it makes at keeping more bass inside my car. I will get vids when the rest of my gear gets in. Hope that answered some questions. Also i have carpeted the box black.

Looks good so far, I had a 1992 Lesabre myself, so I know about those rattles from the trunk lid.

Thats going to be pretty nice and loud when you finish, and im glad you found a fix for your sagging rear end, I had the same problem with mine, :crap:

My granddad has one, I use to drive the joint everywhere. he got it in 93 and its still only has 98 on the dash. Crazy. He was gonna let me have it, so I've done all the dynamat, put some new speakers in then he decides to take it back.....but besides that I loved it. Had big dreams for it.

yeah i got a 88 dark blue Park Ave. Got a set of Type R's in a custom box I built. Sounds pretty good. But I think the trunk is gonna blow off, as bad as it rattles, lol. Need something for it, any cheap fixes for that

i put some damplifier on my trunk lid. worked really nice. now i just need something to fix the rattle of the license plate and i'll be good to go.:)

yeah something, looks like the taillights are gonna pop out now, crap rattles a little too much. Not even so much the trunk lid( I mean it rattles a bit) but the back support where the taillights are is the thing rattling more then the rest

I guess for that it would require taking apart lights and putting some mat in there... pain in the *** imo. Im lazy so i didnt do that but it would probably help

Nice setup!! I've got a 94 LeSabre....It's been a great car...It's got around 197,000 miles and still runs great....I bought it with around 58,000. Check out my profile for pics of my current system.....

The engine's in these cars is known for being a great one. I've made sure I've kept the oil changed and not let it overheat....Being that I'm a former mechanic, I learned that those are the 2 most important things. Also, I've had the transmission fluid changed as well but not as often as I should have. I've still got the original transmission and it's never had any engine work. I'm hoping to keep mine for at least another 2 years. I'd love to be able to put 300,000 on mine!!

On another subject.....A guy that I recently met has just designed a box for my car. It's a really cool design and I'm hoping to get it installed in the near future and then I'll probably start entering some local SPL comps. I'll add you as one of my buddies and try and update you once I get it installed.

Ill bump for the Lesabre as well, I had a 92 and that car ran so well. Sometimes I wish I still had it for a daily, :crap: I can also vouch for the engine in thoses cars, GM 3800 series is a long lasting engine if you take care of here. My uncle had a 90 Oldsmobile 98 Regency that had over 210,000 miles on it before the tranny finally gave out, he bought it with only 45000 on the od.:eek:

lol **** dash, I want to upgrade headunit, one of the major things stopping me is knowing I have to take out 3 dozen bolts lol. I'll get some vidz this weekend of some new tracks.

Actually, I think I've had the dash out enough where it actually seems simple now...It's possible I could even do it blind-folded :D

I guess I wouldn't know how much easier other cars are since I haven't hooked up anything else in another car since I owned a VW Jetta back in the 90's....Those were super easy....

....I'll check back for the Vids....

Since we talking about Lesabres, did it take anyone else a while to find those screws in the ac vents?

I had a new HU for 2 weeks and had removed every screw I needed including the glove box ones and cound not figure out why the dash would not come down lol. Learning>me, lmao.

I got it on ebay:) it was a refurb with 1 year warranty. I bought it for 225 + shipping and exchange ( i'm canadian ) it ended up being around $288? I think i got a good deal.
