Okay, so it's probably not the best system, but it's my first real one and consists of a Pioneer Avic D-3, Rainbow SLC265.25 comps powered by a zx350.2 and 2 Kicker CVX 12's. It's all powered by Kicker Hyperflex 1/0 and has the big 3 done.

Still onto the list of things to do/buy are a new battery upfront, and possibly in the back. More sound deadening, and A Kicker 650.4 with a Memphis 16-x03 to run the comps active. Then eventually I will upgrade the comps. I also need a sub amp, and then I will most likely upgrade the subs pretty soon.

Onto the pics:

Here is the Avic installed:

That was the first box i have ever built. It's made of 3/4" MDF. 4.5 cu ft after displacement tuned to 35hz. All corners are rounded, as is the inside of the port. I don't have a router, so the baffles are cut out with a jigsaw. I painted the whole box flat black, then went back through with neon colors and did the splatter effect. After that, I made some stensils and painted them with gloss white. I know not everyone will like it, but I do, and I'm gonna throw a blacklight in the trunk so it should look pretty cool(don't have any lights in the trunk atm)

Let me know what you guys think...!

Yeah, I knew some people wouldn't like it, but i really like snowboarding so I thought stencils would be a cool way to spice up a box. I was originally gonna carpet it with some obnoxious shag carpet, but then thought this would be a little nicer looking...?

I like the box myself..........not that I would ever go with a theme like that, but is different, so give ya that. Looks good for a first box too, much better than I could ever do, so good job!

Also how do you like your CVX's ported?

I have one off 750rms Autotek amp in a 1.5 sealed enclosure and do almost 140 at the dash. Is very loud for 1 sub off just that rms.

Been thinking about going ported, but don't know if I want to sacrafice the room.

Nice, love that box.

One question though, why's the door not have a hole in it for the speakers?
Is the mid just mounted onto that plastic ring?

i actually dig that box.

only thing id suggest would be getting some of that clear uv reactive paint and dusting the actual speakers a lil bit ;)

you need to clean up the interior of your vdub a bit, (i do too lol) but lookin ******. i might steal this paint idea for my SPL box. :)

Thanks all...

Don't know about the CVX's yet, as they aren't hooked up. I'll be buying the amp on monday, so it should be here sometime next week (Kicker zx1500.1) so I'll let you know how it sounds ported then.

And there is a speaker hole in the door, it's just not very deep so it has to have baffles, mine are just the plastic ones cuz I got em from bb for like $0.75 haha.

But what's this clear uv paint you speak of. SOunds kind of interesting. And I know it's dirty, but I am just waiting for the install to be 100% done before I clean it. I'm actually thinking about taking out the backseats and walling it off and throwing 2 DD 9518's in there but I'm not sure if I really want to yet, as I don't know if I'd be able to get it back to stock very easily....

Anyways, car is hopefully getting painted this week... will be flat black and then I'm going to redo the headliner in the car with black. Rims I'll eventually get, but that could be a few months hahah $$ is a little tight.

Where did you get them for $0.75?

I don't have a router or jasper jig to make them out of MDF, I could use about 6 of them.

Holy crap, $15 for plastic rings? Jesus...

I'll just go get me a nice course wood blade for my jig saw and make my rings.

clear + neon + paint + google


you can get the green stuff in craft stores not sure about multiple colors however... take a look at Michaels Arts and Crafts they might have something along the lines.

i think the box looks sweet. i started to like the splatter paint a few years ago when UNIQUE used to do it on all their boxes. ive considered it on my new box but to match my car with like black, blue, silver

shows ur personality. Thumbs up!
