it's finally time to start my car. it's been a long time waiting. been over 2 years since it's had a sound system. hopefully this is the last time i do an install in this car as I just want it to be my weekend warrior. the system is going to be simple. after sound is done the motor is next. this build will probably last till the end of summer or later (hopefully it gets done before). all the work will be done by me on free time over the weekend.

Wow, pretty beefy mid range. Curious as to how you're integrating them.

Also, what makes that volt meter so expensive?

just a 2 speaker pod in the door, nothing special. the volt meter is a 360 degree full sweep meter. most of the ones you'll see that are like this only have a 90 degree sweep or 270 degree sweep plus it lights up a pretty blue.
