I just recently moved to Jacksonville and am ready to get started on my system! I have a 2011 Impala LTZ within a couple of weeks I will be buying everything in my signature, I will also being tearing out all of the seats and carpet to deaded everything. I am also going to start a build log for all of the Impala fans. I will be buying the new GoPro HD Here 3 black edition so I should be able to post some good pictures and videos!

If anybody has suggestions please feel free to inform me or if I am ******** something up please don't let me stay wrong. I have met some people on here and seem very friendly hope to meet many more!

I live on the Southside off of baymeadows. I am here because of Navy. I am moving in with a friend next week for a bit to save money so I can support this addiction of a hobby I have. Need to save up about 3k for this system! That's not the only reason I am moving though haha. I'm not a junkie! Well maybe a little... what about you?

Unfortunately me too for the time being trying to figure out what to start with. I am thinking about buying all the wires and batteries first which is a lot more than I expected. I am thinking about the AQ3500D.1. For the wires so far I think I need the big three 0 guage. Probably 40-60 ft of 0 guage for the amp because I was advised to run two from the front to the back battery plus the ground and from the second battery need two power cables to amp. Also need 2 5' of 4 guage for my 4 channel amp and about 50 Ft of 12 ga for all the speakers.

I also am going to get XS D3400 for under the hood XS D3100 for the trunk and mechman 270 amp ho alt. Just all of that is going to run about $1400. O and 24 SQ ft sound deadening to double the truck. All of the wires and sound deadening from Audio Technix! -_-

Yeah I got a descent quote from him. May change a few things. I am looking at the AQ3500D.1 instead of the VFL 120.1 Its only about $120 more and seems to be well worth it. I am also going to upgrade the battery in the front to the XS D3400 and run dual 0 guage to the back xs d3100 battery! So much to buy Do not know where to start!!!

A system like that really does take a lot of time and money, good luck with it all!
