    Re: C6 vette install, lots of pics.

    Very clean work there my friend. Having a velocity yellow C6 myself, I would never do that to the car. Every vehicle I own has a system in it but that is one car I believe should be left alone. only my opinion of course. I do like how you mimicked the "waterfall" of the C5 convertible though.

    That is an awesome install, but not sure how I would like the sound of it. So in your honest opinion, how does it sound?

    Love the car, install and Quad!

    Great job on the install though, looks amazing.
    ur completely wrong.

    Jl is one of the best brands u can buy.
    They might be expensive but if u have the money, might as well get one of the best.
    Im not saying there isnt better out there but they have very quality products and they have great sq.

    I have seen and sat in this car and I can say it sounds amazing! And for a DIY'er he did a wonderful job and looks even better in person than in the pics.

    Loudness and sound quality aren't related. If you knew what accuracy was you would realize that JL puts out GREAT SQ subs. Not a huge fan of their mid level speakers but the ZRs are very good as well. Their amps are amps. If you don't like JL gear, or more usually can't afford it, quit crying and get over it. Many people do like it and with good reason.

    Great job on the install though, looks amazing.
    THAT I'll agree wholeheartedly with. Beautiful work, simply beautiful.

    I needed a little trunk for lawn chairs, icebox, etc. The top of the vette snaps in over the back part of the amps all the way to the back of the trunk if you like the seamless look.

    Thanks, To me a stock car is just the donor. I had the wheels, and exhaust system before I had the car. All my cars are modified, it is an addiction

    Thanks Jowens500 and nice visiting with you the other day and you are doing some killer stuff in your shop.
    I really like the sound and with Alpine Imprint system it makes the sound stage fell like it is coming from the front windshield. I really like the JL ZRs, they are not as bright as the Focals and as all music it is a preference. I have the base knob connected to 500-1 so I can adjust the base up and down easily depending on what type of music that I am listing to. The C5 rears are mainly used for rear feel when the top is off. I am always a little surprise at the JL haters and wonder if they have only heard the JL cheap stuff.I feel allot of the sound quality is coming from how much sound deading that I put in, that alone took @ 40 hours.

    Here is some pics with the roof in back. I design the curve of the speaker box to match the front curve of roof.

    Re: C6 vette install, lots of pics.

    It was very nice to finally get to meet you too. You are welcome to come by the shop anytime any shoot the sheit! We are getting a little closer on the F-150. Got the box and 3 woofers in today and the radio in the dash. Got the old school Chevy truck done and ready to deliver. Still gotta get going on the Prelude and have 2 other decent sized jobs scheduled. So I got to get off my arse and get to work!!! But it's soooo hotttt.......

SQ is dependent very little on the sub itself. If you truly think JL has great sounding drivers, you have never heard a good SQ setup.
