    Re: ejschultz' Build Log

    I bridged my amp today for the speakers. I honestly don't notice much of a difference. They're a little louder but no cleaner. I'm going to go active with them. I'll see what that does.

    I might pull off my panels again and deaden the panels to help stop them from vibrating. It's not bad, but it's enough to **** me off.

    Well, I got a new box yesterday thanks to Vitveet. He's got some great craftsmanship and great design skills. Here's a set of the pics. I have a thread with pics already, but I wanted to add this to my build log as well.

    Here's the pics:

    Well, I just got an Alpine MRD-M1005 to replace my MRD-M605. I really like the 605 so I figured what better than the bigger version of it? Anyways, when it comes in, I'll get some pics of it.

    Well, it came in, but my f*cking camera took a sh*t on me just now. The flash and the shutter aren't in time with each other so the pics all come out weird. I'll try and get my girlfriend's camera tomorrow or the day after to get some pics of it.

    I had to take the amp apart to fix one of the fans. There's 2 cooling fans in there and one was apart inside the amp. This was probably one of the most difficult amps I've ever taken apart. I got it fixed, but it took me probably about 45 minutes just to figure out what was holding everything down in there.

    Re: ejschultz' Build Log

    I got my Alpine MRD-M1005 installed today. I was going to run 4 gauge to both amps, but my 4 channel will not take 4 gauge, only 8 . I've got my 1/0 going back to the trunk, going into a fused Rockford disto block that accepts 1/0 or 4 gauge for an input and outputs in 4 or 8 gauge. I've got the 1/0 going in obviously and 4 gauge going to my mono with 8 going to my 4 channel. I've got an unfused Rockford distro block collecting the 2 grounds and putting out a 1/0 ground. I figured I'd let everyone know that I did get my new amp and it's in and working great.

    All in all, the 1005 is sweet. It's a huge improvement from the MRD-M605 that I have/had, power wise. The 605 put out 648 @ 2 ohms @ 14.4 V and the 1005, like I said does 1035 under the same conditions. 1035 RMS before voltage drops and impedance rise sure beats the hell out of 648 RMS before voltage drops and impedance rise. And to think, I really didn't want anymore power than what I had... I sure am glad I made the upgrade.

    Re: ejschultz' Build Log

    For the haters that didn't care for my tweeter install, I'm getting custom A pillars made for my car that are going to house my tweeters. I'll get build pics up when and if I get any. I'll definitely get pics up once I get these in my car. It'll probably take a few weeks for the guy to complete the pillars, but they'll be worth the wait.

    It was the first word that came to my head. Anyways, I'm somewhat taking your advice on hacking stuff. Well, I did buy a new set of A pillars to do this to and I'm not the one doing the work because I can't glass worth sh*t. This will definitely give a much better look. The guy who's doing it is going to ensure they're perfectly places for proper imaging.

    Re: ejschultz' Build Log

    Well, I was a little bored before work today so I decided to finish deadening my front doors. The only thing left to deaden was the panels so...without further ado...





    There you have it. My front doors are now completely deadened. My car is almost complete. All I have left is to get my kick *** A pillars completed and deadening some of my trunk. I'll probably have to buy some more deadener though... I'm almost out now.

    Cool. And just for the record, I didn't really mean to give you **** about the tweets. It's your ride. You can superglue them to the windshield if you want to.

    I've never put deadener of door plastics before. What's your reason for doing so?

    Well, I do have a lot of issues with the sh*tty GM plastic rattling. I've seen a lot of people do this before on Impalas/Caprices and have good results. The door panels feel more solid now that I've done that. There's not nearly as much flex and there were some parts that rubbed before that will not rub now because the deadener holds it in place. Also, plastic does resonate a little. I'm sure it will help with this. I'm not going to be putting these back in until I get my A pillars back. I'll let you know how it sounds once I get that all finished up and if it made any difference or not. I'm hoping it will because I do get some mad vibrations during high midbass output from my front speakers.

    Hmm, don't you think it would be better to apply a layer of luxury liner(or something similar) under the plastics?

    I already had it, or something similar that didn't work out too well. It helped with road noise before I had the deadener, but it didn't do much for the rattles. Plus, I had a bunch of extra deadener just lying around waiting to be used. My door panels have been sitting on my bed for over a week now, and, like I said, I was bored before work. I figured it wouldn't hurt anything, other than my fingertips that were bleeding all over the place as I was doing this.
