    It's an SVS PB12/2 Ultra. I had no idea how much LFE I was missing when watching movies until I purchased a real sub. I think it cost about 2,300.00, but was easily the best investment in my theater. Just pure, clean, undistorted bass. It's currently on the back burner, but I'm starting to play around with an IB manifold to install in there instead. The theater adjoins my equipment room which will be used for the IB. I'm looking at 4 FI subs to do the dirty work.

    Re: My modest, average joe, install (56K good luck).

    Thanks for the comments guys. There have been some amazing builds on here that I have had the opportunity to look through. There are some very talented people that have put together amazing systems. This one pales in comparison to those, but I am enjoying it all the same, well at least now the mat has been installed.

    The only thing I'm waffling on at the moment is the sub install. I purchased 2 RE SE 12's but I am now thinking this might be overkill for an SQ/SQL install. I'm debating on installing only one at this point.

    Re: My modest, average joe, install (56K good luck).

    Nothing real exciting here. I finally made some time to continue with my wiring, and to finally deaden the inner door skin. When people mentioned how long it took to sound deaden I thought they must be really slow. It literally took me from 10 this morning until 10:30 this evening. A lot of it was molding the plates to cover the giant holes Chevy left in the door.

    All wires are soldered and shrink wrapped.


    Grounding points are stripped of paint.


    Here's a shot of how the JBL 660GTI setup will look. The woofer will attach to the door with the waveguide tweeter plate mounting the the door panel itself. Tight fit, but should just make it.


    I picked up some cold rolled 22 gauge steel for covering the holes. Took a while before I was happy with how it fit against the door. I applied deadening to the back and front of the panel.


    Like a glove. Well not quite but close enough.



    This panel was a pain in the butt. Attach, remove, trim, repeat. The door handle and lock rod's didn't help any either.


    I wanted the panel to be easily removed in case I needed to service the door. I'm still debating about shaving the handles so I didn't want to have to tear everything apart should I want back in. This panel was sound deadened back and front same as the others, but the front coating was only attached to this panel, not overlaid like the rest. The last pic should show what I mean.

    Ran out of steel so I had to go hunting through the shop. Found some spare aluminum kicking around. Not as easy to work with but it'll do.


    Long since dark before I finished so this pic isn't the greatest, but you get the idea. I ran out of sms screws so I didn't finish the last cover. It's ready to go, just needs to be screwed down and deadened over. The doors weren't as neat looking as the floor. I was running really low on deadener so I had to piece some together here and there.

    WOW! Talk about going the extra mile. I wish I could show this kind of diligence in my work.

    I'm sure it'll pay dividends once everything is said and done.

    very nice set up. Like the fact you not only deaden the hells out of the door you seal up the panel as well. NICE . I assume your making door pods?
