    Tommy K's Daily/SQ install w/pics!

    Yep, you read that correctly, I'm throwing a little SQ in the mix this time.

    After 3-4 years of competing and not really having a daily install that was both comfortable for myself and a passenger and didn't sound like ***, I finally decided to build something new.

    This all started after the maxxsonics show when I picked up some nice equipment for mega cheap and thought that I should actually USE the stuff.

    Now this is just the beginning, as I do plan to revamp the front stage/highs amp as well.

    As for the new equipment, it will be:

    -6 MB Quart DWC204 8's powered by the zx2500 @ 2.6 ohms
    -MB Quart RSD 213 5.25's replacing the kicker KS 5.25's
    -Seas Prestige 1" textile dome tweeters replacing the harsh kicker titanium tweets that are in the A-pillars
    -And, hopefully, an MB Quart DSC480 running the tweeters and mids ACTIVE! This is my hope anyways, but in case I don't I did pick up a set of bi-ampable crossovers at the maxxsonics show.

    This is going to be a simple install because I don't have the room for kick pods or door pods, so the mids have to remain in the dash.

    Anyways, on to the pics!

    The first thing I started on was the new sub enclosure. I wanted to keep it simple, so it will be sealed. This is also due to space constraints since I wanted to keep my seat pretty far back.

    How the subs will fit.

    Wiring up the subs


    All done!


    I got the box installed tonight and I must say I am IMPRESSED for some mega, MEGA cheap 8's. I got these guys for $5 a piece!

    So far they are very solid, good response, and overall sound very nice. Don't take a whole lot of power, but I'm not too concerned about that right now anyhow. However I do plan to upgrade to some beefier 8's eventually. I'm still a basshead.

    It's nice to have a daily install for once. The single 10" was loud and all, but it always had 2 problems. 1) I couldn't have a passenger because the seat was all the way forward and upright, and 2) It sounded like *** and had a very narrow bandwidth.

    Also, here's 2 crappy vids that I took. I must note that it sounds much clearer in person, my camera isn't the greatest for vids.

    This is the type of music I normally listen to, which is another reason I decided to ditch the fart box.

    Double baffle will come after I finish everything up, and it actually does have 2 internal braces.

    If it broke a 130 i'd be surprised.

    But I'll TL it eventually I'm sure.

    Yep, harsh tweet combined with a crappy video camera.

    It doesn't sound AS bad in person. Hell, I got the treble on the headunit at -4 out of 6, lol.

    Hopefully going to the textile tweeter with a better crossover network will help that.
