I am the worst build logger ever. I just get to work and never take breaks or anything to take a few pictures.

Everything in the signature is installed.

2000 Toyota Solara Only plans are 20% tint all around and possibly some 18" or so black rims with a chrome lip. I really want to find some clear corners but have been unsuccessful so far.

I completely deadened both doors and installed the woofer in the original place and put the tweeter where the stock tweeters were
http://memimage.cardomain.com/member_images/11/web/2519000-2519999/2519260_61_full.jpg

Pioneer HU and a switch in the pocket for both amps.
http://memimage.cardomain.com/member_images/11/web/2519000-2519999/2519260_62_full.jpg

Finally IDMAXv3d2 in 2.5cuft sealed which is way too big and the box takes up way too much space. I am either going to build a new box for it or try to go with 2 idqv3 10"s. There are both amps in the sig. on the little POS amp rack to the left.

Any Questions or Comments are accepted. Audio wise i would really like to find a good SQ HU. I am going to try to trade either my IDmax or 2 10" idq's or maybe amp for one. If you have a nice HU and would like to trade for anything i have let me know!

I took off the door panels today to make some 3/4" MDF baffles for the mids. Here are some pics of the deadening i had done and the baffles.

yeah i will need to do something with the wood so it doesnt rot.

I think i am building that new box/amp rack tomorrow actually.:)

Ill post pictures. Man, people hating on a build log..... i will continuously mess with my car you can see pictures. I guess if i do bad quality work you can *****, but honestly everything is hidden and functional.

I hope the rest of you guys enjoy the work i will be doing.

i was thinking about it, but i dont want to have THAT permanent of an install. I often change audio equipment around so that would really limit my subwoofer options.

That system is quite good, considering what other "systems" I've seen on here. It is basic, but not bad at all. like someone else said, new box and amp rack, and all is well!

The only thing i can even think to do is rims and clear corners..... Any tips on exterior enhancements??

cardomain switched some things up so i cant post the pictures directly to the page anymore that is one of the most disappointing things i have seen in a while. besides my tint problem.

Use MS paint or something to hide your plate, that or just take the picture down.

BTW nice choice on the woofer, and good job deadening the doors. ;)

for exterior enhancement.. Clear corners if that's your taste. HID's. Maybe a body kit. Could use some wheels. If none of those get it running better. Intake and a quiet exhayst. What kind of engine have you got? And what's it make now?

Guys, sorry to thread steal, but how do you get sound deading behind the front layer of panel that the speaker is mounted to? To where it actually is on like the back of the actual door? Like in that pic of the big door where there is a big hole where there is sound deadening on the inner layer of the door, how do you get sound deadening all over the inner layer? It looks like you'd only be able to sound deaden behind that hole

Well, the only engine upgrades i would do would be to save gas. I got the 4 banger for that one reason. If i was going for something quick i wouldnt have gone with a solara. I dont even know what kind of power it makes, maybe like 125hp with a 4cyclinder automatic. Not much fun to drive around except for listening to music.

Thanks for the compliments, i dont even have MS paint or i would edit. I just dont know what someone could possibly do with my plate number.

Get rid of that side molding crap lol. If you can that is... If you can't I vote you take it to a body shop and have them shave it off. I think that would look real nice. Side moldings make cars look cheap...

Looks clean man. Props.

im sorry i dont know what you are talking about.... What is the side molding

EDIT: NVM you are talking about the small trim piece running in the middle of he car all the way down the side. Yeah i dont know if that will come off or not and if it does i think it would leave something nasty in its place.

intake dosen't really save much more gas. Exhaust will help a bit but at least get a quiet one. Normally tuners save some gas. Adjust timing and whatnot.

haha you say at least get a quiet one as if i would even consider buying a coffee can. I LOL at that, but you dont know me. Yeah i will need to do some research on what exhaust system would provide the best MPG increase.

Well i did some work on my substage so i am going to post up a few more pictures of what i have going on now. I will carpet everything in the trunk with gray carpet. I plan on adding more deadener to the doors and everywhere else. Other than that i am not quite sure what other upgrades ill consider. I am going more for a clean look with good quality. SPL does not mean much to me anymore.

I like it, a simple setup with some good processing up front and plenty of deading in those doors. With all that ID equiptment in there it should sound amazing.

Nice job, like the "stock" look of those doors :)

thanks man. I really like the sound i am getting. My only problem is the 4th channel is blown on my SS 405 so i have the 3rd running both my mids so my T/A is not in action at the moment. I also get a little interference now out of my mids because they are both on the same channel. I am looking to get a difference 5ch. amp doing about 50x4@4, 100x4@2, 250-500x1@1 or 4.

I dont know what happened to my amp. When i first hooked it up it the 4th channel didnt work. I turned the volume up and it cut on and worked for the next day or so. It cut out again and i turned up the volume and it began again. I finally tested the connection and i dont get any output. I imagine it is a simple fix because i was working. Maybe something is just loose?? I dont have the knowledge or ability to fix it so i am looking for a trade or just one to buy outright.

Is there enough airflow for that amp? Not to bo overly critical or anything, but why didnt you just run down to walmart and buy grey carpet before you put everything in?

now yall can be real men and sound deadn da roof:)


That's not 0/1 AWG.
That looks like 4-AWG, or 2AWG with a really thin jacket.
I'm working on an F-150 now. My brother's '03, and that shiz is easy to run wires... but finding a good place to mount amps was a bish. I ended up just doing it under the seats, but it's a tight fit, man.


As for OP: try to have the sub firing into the cabin and seal the trunk off from the cabin. That way your sub isn't pressurizing your trunk and you'll get more output.

It is super easy. The most difficult was from the negative on the battery to the engine block. I am looking for a different amp. When i got that one the 4th channel was blown.

again, it was very simple.


how loud is it? i have one alpine type x in a sealed box and it's not that loud. i'm thinking of getting another x and a ported box.
I have about 300rms going to my idmax and it is loud IMO. It gets plenty loud on rap and blends beautifully when i listen to most of my daily music (ex. DMB, classic rock, red hot chili peppers, etc.)

The amp seems to do fine temperature wise. It may be a different story in the summer, but it is still getting up in the 70s and the amp is not very warm at all. The sides of my amp cover are open and so is that little bit in the front. As for the carpet, I dont have a job so i am trying to save money. Everything i did over our christmas break was from home depot giftcards and such.

Umm, i used to have Stinger 1ga. ran from front to back and then distributed to my two amps. I went to one amp in order to be able to remove the 1ga. because it was big and kind of short for my application. Now i have 4ga. If you were talking about my big 4 supposedly it is 1ga. welding cable.

I was thinking of running some side boards and a top board to kind of seal the front pressure from the sub, but i am not really looking for more output. What i need to do is double layer a few sides of my box because it is a little weak. I used all 1/2" MDF because i thought it would be alright with only 300rms going to my sub. I was wrong and will be adding layers, probably double layer each side so i will have a 1" think box.
