This is one of two show cars we recently set up for a local car show & competitions here in the Philippines:


Car Make/Model : '99 Nissan Patrol Safari series 4x4 SUV
Main HU : Alpine with 6 disc changer
Slave HU : Soundstream DVD Player with TV tuner & 3 Monitors
Sound Processor : Audiocontrol EQX, EPICENTER & ESP2
Line Driver : Audiocontrol MATRIX
Sub Amps : Kicker KX1200.1, PPI Art Series a600 & (2) RF 250.1
strapped together to produce 1000 rms @ 4 ohms
Mid's & Hi's Amps : (2) RF 400.4 & RF 200.2
Sub/Lows : 1 Kicker S15L7, 1 Kicker S15L5 & 2 RF Power series

We are no professional installers here. We'd just join the car show but not with the competition for SQ/SPL.

Will start posting pics now..... thanks everybody.

We have just started our new project for SPL competition sometime June this year
and we need a lot of help from all of you guys here:

Here's our game plan & you may suggest if you know something will work better granted cabin resonance, gain, sound proofing & etc. are all taken into account.


HU : Eclipse 84xx
SP : ???? not sure if well put one (Need advise) Kove maybe?
Line Driver : Audiocontrol Matrix
Sub : 4 MTX RFLs to be tuned a little below cabin resonance
Mid & Hi's : CDT's or ??? not sure yet pls help
Sub Amp : 8 MTX Thunder 15001ds
Mid & Hi's " : Memphis MCxxxd or Xtant
Alt : 2 stinger 300amps
Batteries : 6 Turbo Start
Wirings : MTX & Tsunami

Any suggestions would be highly appreciated...

Dont mix and match subs

It looks like you have crazy amounts of cancellation.

Looks like you guys have very nice installation/fabrication skills. Just looks like you need to spend a little more time learning about acoustics in a vehicle.

we were supposed to install 4 L7's but it never arrive right on schedule. Thanks

But you know, I have seen many foreign competitors that mix match subs. Not sure why but I am guessing it's like the thing to do there. ?????

Youre right squeak we lack that knowlegde here but were learning and this car was only intended for the show otherwise it will be less accurate for both competition categories. They used termpro for measuring dbs and stuff for sqs here. We got metered after for free and it did well not as bad as we thought it would be.

Availability of the equipments needed is the main reason for things like this to happen.
Our case is one of the example. There used to be 1 kicker distributor here but unfortunately it went out of business. I dont know why....

why dont you order online?

i guess shipping\customs\duties would kill you i suppose.

but really, that cant sound very good :\

LOOKS good tho. door pods look sick. those (IMO) are the best part of that car.

seems like you guys got skills when it comes to fabrication but you need to work on learning acoustics in a car as squeak said.
