I think there is one shop that does, I will check, but 2critical and ally... are great guys to deal with.

I didn't get there, I was hoping to get to the point of taking the truck there but that didn't happen. Are they there tomorrow also?

Those are the ones I'm using right now. Can you make something work with the dimensions of the tweeter? If you're interested in doing some for me, send me a PM and we can talk about price and such.

kicks look good but the tweets leave a bit to be desired for me....vinyl would have been my first choice for finishing those as it is a bit difficult to vinyl something that tiny...also it would have likely looked better and been easier to finish had you blended the tweets into the factory a-pillar...i can understand if you are trying to maintain the vehicles integrity but it is easy to find a-pillars elsewhere to use instead of the originals....

Actually that is vinyl, however I couln't get the color I wanted to match by this week end so I used what I had, It will be changed to the light gray when I can get the matching vinyl here. And the reason I did "blend" them to the factory A pillar is because I am constantly changing my mind and switching things up;)

Thanks for the input, I sincerely appreciate the opinion

looking good. I love the amp rack, very clean look and good equipment to boot. Sorry if I missed it but where are the subs going, are they going to fit behind the seat? I would love to do a setup something similar to this in my Ford but there is next to nothing for room behind the seat for room behind the seat.

kmanian
06-08-2008, 02:12 AM
the sub stage will be going between the 2 front seats, basically I am taking the usless jump seat out and filling the space in with goodness:)

thanks for the thoughts, I also like a cleaner look, not so much flash. it looks like s hit in the pic, but it cleaned up well when I had time the following day

you may want to consider some of cmass thin line subs, do some fiberglass under the seats and go stealth;)

I may go that route, but atm I am doing what your doing and removing the center jump seat. I am planning on keeping the upper console/backrest portion and just replacing the seat cushion part. If all works out good I can put some padding back over it and have a semi usable seat, but if not I am not too worried. Not too often I will need seating for 6 in my truck.

I think I remember someone either on here or over at diy doing that to a ram and it looked totally stock, I think he put a 10" in it. there are some decent pics if I remember correctly. just FYI

I've got my integrated a pillar tweeter pods halfway finished in my garage right now:

http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b155/stormceri/004-4.jpg
http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b155/stormceri/005-4.jpg

Covered them over pretty good in a bondo/fiberglass mix. I've had to redo it once already, so this time I'll put in the sanding time it deserves and hopefully get it right.

Nice equipment too!

i like how you used every bit of space you had available without giving up needed area.

amp rack looks great
unique enclosure i like it, just hope the little man doesnt decide to kick the sub when hes back there

The Fiberglass walls are a 1/2" thick min. the front half of the box is filled with foam and sealed with a fiberglass wall. The foam is to kill resonance in the unused space

If he kicks the sub, I kick him:laugh: that's a joke. Actually where the sub sits it is almost impossible to get your foot to it. I am also having a custom grill fabed for it out of alum.

nice enclosure. I was gonna do the same exact thing to try and squeeze a 15 into the truck. The gauges and cupholders are a pretty sweet idea too. I am curious how the foam works on killing the resonant frequencies I would think having the cupholders there whatever drink you had would would be bouncing around all the time.

I used open cell foam, it dosen't get super ridgid. then I put a baffle made of 3/4 mdf on top of the foam, I then fiberglassed the baffle. Any vibrations that get to the cup holders are going to be secondary. I hope, or I may end up with flat Coke all the time

I know it:laugh:

here are some pics of the XXX in the truck, forgive the fact that i have yet to clean it please.

I have to say at this point, I am more than likely going to keep the XXX in the truck because it looks really cool IMO, but the UL12 gets louder and sounds better doing it. I am kinda bummed about it.:crap:

I hope that is a good thing.

It has been years since I have competed. actually the early '90's so to tell you the truth I really am not sure what is going to be looked on as good or not. but either way I like it. except for the fact that Cmass doesn't make a UL15:verymad:

I am dead serious, the UL12 spanked the XXX 15, at least in the applications I am using them in. I have let 5 other guys listen to it with the 2 different subs and they all agree.

The MX's are moving on to new homes, and the nightshade isn't here yet. I have to do a little work to the box, make if from sealed to ported, but that's all good, I have to take it out to get it wrapped in leather anyways.:D

You have any pics of the ul's
