    727kid's Build Log

    Been a while but I am finally back at it... the DIY'er in me got the best of me once again.

    This is the current system:
    Stock Head Unit
    Front Stage: JL C5s
    Front Stage Amplifier: Sundown 100.2
    Rear Stage: Stock.





    Has been about a year and sounds awesome to me, but we can always get better (plus I miss subs). It will be a while before it is all finished but this is what I am planning for the new set up.

    HU: Alpine W505
    Processing: Alpine H701
    Active Front Stage: Cd1 Pro Minis for the tweeters and X69s for the midbass
    Rear Stage: JL C5s
    Substage: (2) FI Q 15s sealed
    Amps: (2) 1.000 Alpine PDXs, 4.150 Alpine PDX, 4.100 Alpine PDX.

    Pics coming up...



    Alarm: Viper 5902
    HU: Stock
    Front Stage:
    Tweeters: Image Dynamics CD1-Pro Mini Horns
    Mids: Sundown Neo Pro 8"
    Subs: (2) 15" Dayton HF ran IB
    Amps: (2) Kicker IX 500.4 (1) Kicker IX 1000.1
    Processor: JBL MS-8

    Box design was pretty easy since I am going sealed. My old box was at max width and height, so it worked perfect for using a test a box with the trim piece.

    My best friend when it comes to box building. Folds up and hides away when I don't need it.




    Unfortunately some of the pieces of wood were too big to fit into my car and I had home depot make the long cuts. Now I understand if they are off by a 1/8th inch but is it too much to ask for just a straight cut? It won't be seen anyways so no big deal.

    Recessed finished into the trim piece (working also as a double baffle). I actually broke the first trim piece, the bottom and top are extremely thin.



    More to come soon..

    Well when the build is complete, it will be a far cry from ugly. It will be paneled off and vinyled. But I will actually take a look into this, it still will be a little bit before I pick up the subs.
