looking good. How is that db alt working for you ?

big scott
07-21-2014, 06:21 PM
its working great. i like it. but i will say with what i have right now when i crank it up it dips to 13.8v . with it down i get 14.4v .
so im happy for now. as i plan on adding a new 100amp alt. i think im going to run the truck off the 100amp and run the 200amp alt just for my system.
i just need to make a bracket to mount my other alt. down the road after i get a few thinks im going to order 1 more db 200amp alt.

Yeah I was just wondering you opinion on them because I have seen a good bit of mixed reviews. After you get those other 2 hdc3 in there you will be slamming for sure and I like the look of those first gen blazers

lookin good i like how those doors are turning out... i need to figure out what im gona do for rear fill in my rear doors - but they are smaller some how than my fronts - so i doubt id fit anything bigger than a single 6.5 anywhere...

have you tested out those 6.5s for the doors yet ? im looking to switch out my current pair of 6.5 in my front doors to something along the lines of pro audio type mids that play the upper range ( 200 - 9khz ) but im a bit afraid since they are doors that weather / rain / water splash drips will eventually ruin a speaker with paper cone in the doors :(

anyhow keep up the good work !

ya i first put them in my center console and it sounded ok. the i made temp. pods on the doors and they sound great. i fooled with the angle of the pods first. that why you see them at an angle . they really need to be at more of an angle but i cant. so that as far as i could go and that still sound great there so im happy.

ya it weird there a lot of space on my panel but when you see whats behind the door panel there not much room were you can have speakers.
i wish this truck would have came with door speakers but they did not. only in the top of dash.

looking good bro nice progress. keep the pics coming...

thanks buddy, ya they are turning out good. but my god i hate sanding ... lol lol .
im going to put 1 more layer of f.g. then ill have to wait till this coming month as i have no bondo . im going to buy that good stuff that's easy to sand.

when i get the next layer on ill post pics when i get the panel back on. then ill pull it again to finish it when i get the bondo.

nice build and all, but why mod a 2.8? why not a 4.3 or 350? more free hp

big scott
07-25-2014, 04:03 PM
i wanted to be diffrent. plus did not want to have to buy another engine and trany. as i cant use my trany on a 4.3 or v8 .

i have plenty of power with this 30 over 2.8 . ya its not a v8 but i like it that way.

if i had the money and a place i could really work on my truck would love a 572 bigblock lol hell ya. i would rip this truck in half with that.

big scott
07-25-2014, 04:06 PM
how many people say ya i have a modded 2.8 ??? not many . and like it that way. iv had many complements with this engine. many people think its a v8 the way it sounds and drives. so im happy.

pics of door panels on door. getting there..

big scott
07-28-2014, 03:45 PM
ok a few more pics, now of the drivers door panel.
also somebody pm;ed me asking how i put the pods on my door, and i told him i would get close pics so you can see how i have dont it.

but i have ruffed up the panel were the pod was going with my dermel using a sanding disk and a cut off wheel. i put small cut marks everywhere the pod was going to give bit to the glass .

and im going to put 3-4 rivets on the corners to help keep it there. and going to glass over them so you will never see then.

have you hooked up any of those sq mids to test play yet ? the pro audio type speakers usualy sound totaly diffrent than car audio type speakers... :)

big scott
08-10-2014, 04:06 PM
hello guys,
ya brian i did hook them up last night, well the passenger side as i still had to ran the wire throw the drivers door.

well did that today, also have the 6.5 comps hooked up also.

so my 4ch amp is running like this.

ch. 1 and 2 running at 2 ohms ( 2- 6.5 per ch. )
ch 3 and 4 running at 4 ohms per crossover. 1 crossover is running 1 tweeter, 1 6.5 comp.

to a drive today and all i can say its hela loud. right now im maxed out on my electrical system.
at full tilt im getting in the lower 12 v.
time to upgrade lol

ill get some more pics up soon.

as for sound ya i did notice a difference from the comps to pros.
i like it.
still have to fine-tune the amp for them. should sound better.

15" sub box - shared chamber or individual chambers ?

you already have 1 of the 15s in your truck beatin right now ? the other one will be brand new ?
the used one will have more suspension compliance than the new stiff un broken in suspension of that sub - i had the same issue in my burb. so i built identical but seperate boxes for my pair of subs.... that way they dont experience push pull from eachother if they are not EXACTLY the same in suspension compliance or inductance / one being produced in 04 and the other 06 or whatever...
i was worried because my pair one was new - and the other was extremely broken in and soft in suspension...

BoomTaco64
08-11-2014, 11:14 AM
even in separate chambers the subs will sound different cause one is broken in and the other is new. when you get the new sub, swap with old one and break in then build the enclosure for the two. using two amps will for sure make it to where you want two chambers anyway. that thing will slam bro

big scott
08-11-2014, 12:27 PM
thanks guy, keep up of the recomendation. as i can use them.

as for the new sub, boom you hit the nail on the head. thats what i was going to do. as i got to thinking about is and figure the subs would fight each other.

so going to put the new in the box i have and use it for a few months. buy then ill have the box ready.

boy cant wait...

i started tuning the 4ch amp all i can say is ( ITS FREAKING LOUD, I CANNOT TURN IT PAST 18 ON THE H/U AS MY EARS START HURTING LOL ) i love it...

big scott
08-11-2014, 12:28 PM
hay boom,

i have all my 6.5's hooked up..

i put the comp 6.5 back on the crossover's .

and they are still in my console.

running 1 amp per sub. running that at 1 ohm.

Yeah but I was meaning how are you going to do the rca cables

big scott
08-11-2014, 12:35 PM
y- spliters off my sub rca from h/u .

so 1 18' rca back to amps. then ill split it so i can hook up 2 amps.

big scott
08-11-2014, 12:39 PM
sorry the other guy wanted to know if that box for 2 subs had a divider, that would be a no.
thats why im going to break in the new sub in the box i already have. then ill put both in that box.

08-11-2014, 12:41 PM

But when you do that doesn't in cut you pre out voltage in half? Say if you had a 4v pre out and you split it wouldn't each amp only be getting 2v ?

big scott
08-11-2014, 12:58 PM
from what i have read no it does not work like that. whether that true i dont know. hell i have spliters on my 4ch. and it works/sounds great.

but i have been thinking about it and instead of running 2 bass nobs ill get the pac lc-1 . that way ill have 1 control over both amps.

big scott
08-15-2014, 04:42 PM
heres a small update...

made a temp. amp rack. it looks good now. cleaned up all the wires and have all amps mounted now.

That is the strangest mounting set up on that 7k. When I got the 5k I just looked at it thinking "this is gonna be a biotch to screw down."

big scott
09-25-2014, 12:56 PM
depending how you mount it sure could be a bitchhh .

but if you drill your mounting holes, then wire it up then screw it down. that will make it easier . i had to do that with my smaller 2ch amp.

Definitely gotta pre-drill pilots. I'm thinking a ratchet with a Phillips attached so you can tighten them down straight.

im going to bag this truck and im going to body drop it 4" . thats going to be fun....


o im going to start my door panels. going to cover the hole dame thing,, glass it . as it looks like shitt right now as i did not finish my upper pods . the 8" speakers pods are done except i need to paint them.

thanks for asking........

Would love pics as you update stuff ;) , bought a 91 2 door blazer that i'm planning on doing a 6th wall in for 2 zcon 15's. Need ideas on the doors though, might even do a center console considering i hate how low the stock one is and will give me more room for front stage. Also hate this thing not having a single **** cupholder, lol

I'll miss my little s10 blazer. (sold it this past summer) It was a 92 had well over 400K miles (Not a typo) on original motor.

Didn't have much in it but spent 1000's just to keep it running...

ant that the truth lol ...lol

ok ,, ok ill get some pics lol......

ill take some tomorrow for ya...

o im going to redo my doors . i have everything i need i just have to get-r-done .....

and i LOVE MY TRUCK it will be the last truck i ever have... im getting a 2wd frame soon,, and a 700r4 2wd trany for it.

as you guessed this is a 4x4 well it was lol.... when i change frames im going to bag it.. then............ im body dropping it.....

if you are not sure what that means..........

im cutting across the firewall,, cutting down both sides of the floor,, and cutting the floor in the back. when thats done i can lower the body down over the frame. as these trucks the floor site over TOP the frame. so when you do this you can get the body even with the bottom of the frame.

then i can go all around the floor and put in filler panels and weld it all up. that way when i slam it the body will be on the ground............ HELLLL YA.

ok heres pics...

thats just primer... i need to sand it down to get it smooth. then im going to vinyl it in black. pad the arm rest and get the tablet mount motorized . yes im going to push a button and the tablet will flip to the side. was going to have it flip from top but i have no room. so it will tilt from the right, that way i can pull the tablet out.

does it look right ?

i plan on...

rounding over the port
rounding over the back of the port

also do you think ill need to double up the baffle ?
no biggy, just not sure if its needed.

CSCStang
07-08-2015, 09:07 PM
I would double up, can't hurt. Definitely round off both port ends. I would do .75 round over on the port piece in the front and .50 both sides of the rear.

brings back memories. i had an 88 S10 2-door, black/grey, and despite the 2.8L hamster under the hood, i really liked the trunk. despite religious washing and cleaning, it rusted in the same places, to the same extent by 140k mi. i never got a chance to do a system in it.

big scott
07-16-2015, 12:24 PM
yup, all these truck have this rust in the same spots. i hate it.

but its looking alot better now. just need to finish it.

at least theres on rust outs now.

but i want to get my interior done as im tired of looking at it. i did paint everything inside so now its all black. exept my seatbelts.
trying to find a black set.

and ya the 2.8 is not the best, but with some internal mods and bolt ons it gets up and goes.
i have redone mine, inside and out ( engine )

ill have to get some pics of the engine. the 1 thing im pissed about is i spent 3 days cleaning/deburring it and i painted in chevy orange but its not all flaking off. looks like shitt.

well it looks like ill be doing a wall after all.
wanted one when i got back into car audio.

so wall specs...

6- sq 12" subs on 3- 2k amps.
45" w
38" h
23" d
all double baffle
port - across the bottom ( 5" h x 42" w x 30" L )
also will be using some 2x4's for more bracing on the sides and maybe the back of the wall.

im in the process of doing a sketchup drawing, and ill post it up when im done.

also going to brace my hole roof with more deadener and probably 1/2" ply. but i mite do 2 layers. ill see when i start.

and will be sealing the wall completely off , and ill be doing a nice beauty panel.
going to build a amp rack. not sure what im going to use. always wanted a floating rack.

Does it matter?

I think it's better than on top. To me looks silly, bottom look better.

thats how it was designed by someone on here.
as i wanted to run 6- 12" and i wanted it to be as loud from both seats.

if it were me I would not do bottom port. Do top port or center or driver side. There's a reason you don't see bottom port WALLS

Ok demos quieter It wasn't loud lol why wouldn't you want the port right behind your head?

Why not on the bottom?

Or center? Like mine.....and a wall like yours, why not a top port? my guess is that no room and wouldn't fit.

I could do top or bottom.
And I don't meter and don't demo.
Now with a wall with 6 =12" subs you never know.
I just want it to be loud from both seats.
I'm not good with figuring out boxes . what's good or not.
The guy on here spent time helping me on this. So I'm going by what he told me.

i have a ?

i was planing on bracing my roof with more deadener and some 1/2 ply and foam, pl .
im going to seal off the wall from the back ( b-piller wall )
would i still need to brace the roof very well ?
im sure from wall to windshield ill need to.
what about the floor from wall back?

ok.
now i just need to start buying some wood.

im looking at about 12 sheets.

that should take care of the roof, tailgate, side walls, rear floor, and wall.

ill get some deadener, and **** cant thing of the name. its the heavy foam type of stuff you use for doors.
ill put that over the deadener on the floor.

im going to weld some brackets on my tailgate hinges and door hinges. so they dont start sagging from all the wight.

i think ill do the port across the top. as i dont want any db loss.

also came up with a plan to make the port and back wall removable. just incase i need to make box bigger for better subs.
as for the port i can fine tune it.

i cant wait, as im going to finally wall this truck.
i wanted to wall it when i got back into this.

o also going to make my amp rack movable. ill have enough slack in the cables.
i think im going to weld up some square tub, make it a phantom mount.


i will make sure i take a lot of pics.

I just realized you were doing 6 hds212s in a wall. That's going to be nasty and will turn out awesome especially with your skills

I know my new system is going to make me want more but I can't do a wall in my daily driver :crap: I bet seeing your build is going to make me want to redo the blow through in my truck. I'm thinking 6 or maybe 8 12s and just fill the entire bed. I'll rent a U haul pickup if I need a bed :laugh:
