View Full Version : Audio Anarchy 2008 Tundra SQL Build

12-22-2013, 12:22 AM
This build is going to be an all DD SQL build for one of my very first customers at Audio Anarchy and so far, it's been a lot of fun. Partly because it's a super clean truck & partly because the customer isn't cheaping out on anything but mostly, because he's a really nice guy who I'd happily buy a beer, sit and chat with for hours and never become bored. And it's really good that he and I get along so well because he's doing a lot of the wiring and such himself, in my shop. But that's only because of the aforementioned... especially given that he's using equipment that I don't sell. But who knows... maybe we'll be building this thing out again with CT Sounds gear some day. :-)

Enough blathering and on to the fun stuff. The equipment list thus far:

Pioneer AVIC-Z130BT head unit
2 - Digital Designs SS4a 4 channel mid & high amps
1 - Digital Designs M4 sub amp (second planned for future)
6 - Digital Designs AW6.5 midbass drivers
2 - Digital Designs AW 3 midrange drivers
4 - Digital Designs AT28 tweeters
4 - Digital Designs 2512 D2 subs (to be upgraded with second amp)
1 - Rockford Fosgate 360.3 processor
6 - Batcap 2000 batteries
A lot of Sky High Car Audio 2/0 & 1/0 ofc power wire, 8g & 12g ofc speaker wire and miscellany
1 - Execution Audio 320 amp alternator
Alarm and GPS tracking unit with GPS module well hidden and with its own onboard backup battery.

And lastly, custom door panels for the mids and one set of tweets, a custom iPad console and a wave transmission line blow through, designed by my customer and I.

The truck, before fender flares and camper shell were added:

Awesome work man. Top notch for sure.

Thanks a lot for the kind words guys. There's a lot more coming.

Amazing how great the door panels you made matches the factory panel. What material did you use? It looks just like the factory may have molded it, hell it loooks better than factory.

this looks good, keep up the good work.

The vinyl we used is some he had left from reupholstering the seats. It's a really good match for the dark factory color for sure.

Good stuff.Tuned in.

12-26-2013, 11:27 PM
Killer so far

12-26-2013, 11:32 PM
That is looking real good Brandon, bet he is real happy so far. Tuned in for the rest of this build.

Thanks a lot guys. He got the power wiring into the bed of the truck today and I think he got the signal wires there also, so we should be starting on the subwoofer box sometime in the next few weeks.

I'm pretty stoked about this one because it's gonna be the first t-line I've done for 4 subs and it's gonna be a blow through so it will be hidden. The hardest thing about it will be getting all that cone and "port" area through that small space, lol.

That looks Great Brandon! Hey I will be by sometime this week to get some wire and other items.

Thanks a lot man. You can see the truck in person when you stop by. :-)

I would just like to take a moment to give a few comments on Audio Anarchy and the work he has done for me so far. With me **** near being a perfectionist on this build I wondered if Brandon was going to be able to work under the pressure and to my ultra high expectations. Let me say this to all of you who's had negative experiences with modern day "hack job, so-called car audio" shops... Not only has Brandon met my expectations, he has far exceeded them. His attention to detail and willingness to communicate suggestions and concerns is top-notch. I took a shot hiring him based solely on his character once I met him. I am sure glad I did. He is a good honest guy that respects his reputation enough to be personally involved in his work rather than just trying to make a buck. So newbies feel safe, you can trust this man. Stage 1 is almost complete for my truck and I am very excited to be setting up for the commencement of phase 2!!!

Hey thanks man. I appreciate the kind words and recommendations.

Can't wait to start hacking away on that truck. :-)

Whooaaa, those door panels turned out perfect. Amazing. I want some like that now. :(

01-08-2014, 12:25 PM
Well then, make a road trip out of it and we'll build you some! :-)

Nice build

Here's a small update. He needed to make a trip in the truck so we tossed the amps in with a two 12 ported box I had laying around and got some music playing. 360.3 is in but bypassed and we didn't have much time to gain set but I was able to get a short video of the system playing before he left...


We forgot to put the butyl rope on the grills for the mids and they were knocking them off about as fast as we could put em back on, lol. This thing is gonna be a beast of an SQL setup. :up2somet:

Very nice. Those door panels just blow my mind. They look awesome.

02-15-2014, 08:37 PM
Where are the 3" mids going?

02-16-2014, 02:32 PM
liking the door panels man. I wanna collect up the courage to do mine and some other stuff to my panels.
