    Re: And so the build begins.... ssackett 12", Sundown, 880prs, PPI 356cs comps.

    BEFORE YALL START TALKING ****, I DO NOT SEE THE POINT IN USING MULTIPLE LAYERS OF DEADENER. I COVERED ABOUT 60% OF THE DOOR WHICH SHOULD BE FINE FOR MY APPLICATION. IF I FIND THAT I WILL NEED MORE DEADENER, I WILL APPLY MORE ACCORDINGLY.



    I started deadening my doors today around 3pm. It took me about 45 mins to do each door. That was disassembly, cleaning, and then deadening. I have no idea how I am going to completely seal up the doors. There are some LARGE openings that have uneven surfaces, so plexiglass is out of the question. I will see how the comps sound installed like this. Hopefully they sound good.









    This is the old stuff that came out. It was in the truck when I bought it. Its a Hifonics Atlas comp set. They were being ran off the HU through the stock wiring, so I have no idea what they sound like if they were amped. The mids are pretty hefty and are dual voice coil. The crossover look and feel very cheap IMO.

    Yep! They were on the truck when I bought it. I sold them for $900 and the other guys stock rims/tires.

    The next day I got on the net and saw they were only $800 new for the rims. LOL

    Here is the box that vitveet built for me. It shipped out Friday morning. Should be about 2.0@34hz after port/sub/bracing displacement. The box looks AWESOME IMO!!!! Thanks vitveet.

    Re: And so the build begins.... ssackett 12", Sundown, 880prs, PPI 356cs comps.

    Well, I got almost all of the deadening done today. I need to do the roof and Im done. I have 12sqft left and if there is any left over, Im going to do some more on my doors around the speakers. I may buy a little bit of Damplifier Pro to add to the roof and back wall. I would like to buy some Luxury Liner and put that on the floors, doors, and back wall, but the funds arent there right now.


    I will start off by saying that whom ever did the wiring in the truck befor I got is a HACK!!!!

    This is probably one of the worst grounds I've ever seen. Look at all that wire exposed.


    Since when in the hell do you join wires togethor like this? He must have been trying to set the damn truck on fire.


    On to the dissasembly...





    Im thinking about leaving the center console out when I re install everything. What do yall think? Or atleast taking the top storage compartmentg off and just having the seat.


    On to the dampening...






    I got all this done in 3 hours.

    Tomorrow comes dampening the roof and running the wires, and hopefully the start of reassembly.

    And I would like to say that the Damplifier Black I bought is working excellent. Its easy to work with and sticks like glue. Its been 40-45 degrees here and I have not had one problem with it. Props to SS for making a good product.

    Wear some gloves when appyling though. I have several small cuts on my hands now.

    Re: And so the build begins.... ssackett 12", Sundown, 880prs, PPI 356cs comps.

    Well, my work got short bc it started raining on me, but I managed to finish deadening, and start running the wires. I've got the 1/0 ran, RCAs, and the remotes leads for the amps done. I pulled the head liner and deadened the roof, and I added some more deadener to the back wall and around the speaker holes in the doors. Im gonna buy some more and add more to the roof. If you have ever owned or been in a Silverado witha system, then you know how the back wall and roof flexes like a MOFO!



    Some of those are just random scraps that I had after cutting up deadener.


    Poked a hole in the drivers side grommet.



    RCAs will be hidden behind the kick panel.


    I bought 6 meter long RCAs from Knu and it was WAY too much, so I ran them down the passenger side to take up some of the extra length and I still have quite abit hanging out my dash...


    Taping the RCAs down...


    I will probably mount my amps on the front of the box on the passenger side.

    Hopefully the weather is decent tomorrow and I can finish the wires, install the components and door panels, and maybe even wire the HU in.
