i kept it pretty simple and relatively inexpensive. it's nothing special or crazy or show quality, just a simple, but powerful, good sounding 2-way active front stage with a sub.
-for the HU i have a Pioneer 880PRS.
-i'm running the PG RSD65CS's upfront. mids in the stock door locations and the tweeters flush mounted in the factory kick panels on-axis.
-for a sub i am using a single Dayton Reference H.O. ten. it is in a strange looking but highly effective ported enclosure. it is in .7 cubic ft NET, tuned to 30hz using a 3" round port with a flare on each end. half of the 24" long port is tucked away inside the enclosure but the whole 24" could not fit inside so the other half is external. may look a bit odd but it sounds way better than it looks. function over form is the way i see it, but it doesn't look THAT bad IMO.
-for power i am running DD (Digital Designs) amplifiers. i have an S4 for the front comps, and a C2a bridged for the sub. the S4 for those who don't know about it, does 200x2 AND 100x2. a 4 channel with staggered outputs. so 200 per RSD mid, and 100 per RSD tweeter. the C2a can do 620 watts at 4 ohms bridged to the sub.
-for power upgrades i did the simple, yet effective big 3. thats all, stock battery, stock alt.
-for rca's i am using the knukoncepts krystal kable. power wire is whatever 4 gauge power wire has been in my last 3 cars (from a Rockford kit if i remember right). speaker wire is plain old radio shack 16 and 18 gauge.
-also the doors are deadened and sealed using Elemental Designs Edead V1SE2. i might continue to deaden more of the car but i find the doors to be most important.
ok on with the pictures.....
first i will share a couple pictures of the car itself, since i also care about how the exterior looks. :-)
ok onto the system pics...
