    75 Buck Truck Build Log.

    Here is the story behind the 75 buck truck. The tranny went out in the buick , and my mother in law mentioned a friend of hers had a truck that a junk man was scheduled to pick up for 75 bucks. Well i had every intention of paying 75 bucks and selling it to the scrap yard for 300-400. But when i got to the owners house , he said it runs , but its pouring water everywhere. A shop quoted him 1200 bucks for head gaskets. So i decided to crank it up and see what this truck was all about. Come to find out it only needed a freeze plug!!! So i shut my mouth and gave the owner his 75 bucks in exchange for the title.

    Now another "need to know" tidbit about this build is so far i haven't spent a dime on the install. Everything was aquired through multi item trades , or hand me downs from local buds after i had to sell off the buicks equipment. So its pretty friggin special if you think about it to have a vehicle that slams nicely and have under $150 invested in the entire project.

    Heres a picture of it the day i bought it. (BTW , this isnt a before/after thing. I WILL NOT BE DOING ANY EXTERIOR UPGRADES BESIDES SOAP AND WATER! LOL)






    So here is the current rundown on the equipment installed in this beast.

    Headunit : eXcelon X592 w/80 gig ipod connected


    Front Stage Amp : Audiopipe AP2004 (thanks Zade08)


    Front Stage : Diamond Hex 6.5" Woofers , Midranges and Tweeters From A Decent HT Set (active)


    Subwoofer Amp : First Gen Earthquake PH-D2 Modded For More Power And Lower Impeadance (Rated 1150 @ 4 , 2000 @ 2 , and said to do a little more at lower impeadances when modded)


    Subwoofer : 1ST Gen PowerAcoustik MOFO 12" (Thanks Phatboi)


    Enclosure : Home Built 1.85 CF @ 32Hz (Someone told me the truck is a redneck truck , so the white trashiness of the box is irony at its best. People look and laugh , then jaws drop when i spin the knob.)


    Heres where the "use whats laying around mentality" came to me. The day i got it legal i realized i had no tunes , so i went rooting through all my stuff and came up with an iPod connected to this





    And here they are installed




    But the polks didnt last long and that passive just wasnt my style. So i pulled it all and went back to the drawing board.

    ended up with this amp (thanks again Zade08)




    And doors that look like this (thanks yet again Zade08)



    And the A-pillars (i cant believe the imaging and SQ i get on some songs with these cheapo's) it will get a different treatment in the future but here they are now

    re: 75 Buck Truck Build Log.

    I got the earthquake for my brother but he doesnt want it so i'm using it till i can buy it back from him.



    And the sub came from phatboi (he said it had coil rub , turned out to be a cracked basket. JB Weld is AWESOME!!)




    And the box was a homebuilt POS my cousin put together originally for 2 12's sealed. I knocked out the center divider , braced it , capped off the extra hole , measured , calculated and ended up with one ugly but fully functional ported encloure thats 1.85@32hz.

    re: 75 Buck Truck Build Log.

    and after someone made a redneck comment i went for the full blown white trashiness. (Yes , thats an entire roll of duct tape , a confederate flag , and a 4" septic tank pipe.)



    And here is some nice shots of the EQ amp (modded and am now running @ 1 ohm) its pretty **** nice.

    re: 75 Buck Truck Build Log.

    And another thanks is in order for zade08 who gave me the noisey kenwood he recently fried. And my cousin for trading me her 80 gig ipod for my 8 gig touch. I got 11000 songs on tap!!



    i will do some good video's in the near future and will possibly have it out at the usf show sometime soon. I gotta get a battery or two first though because as of today i rewired the sub to 1 ohm since i had a modded amp , and now this thing is a beast!! I know its only a matter of time before i have to get down and dirty and build me a real deal enclosure , but i think im gonna stay within the specs of this box. I really like the way it sounds. Well i'm out for now , opinions , suggestions , and laughs are all welcome. Thanks for reading the beginnings of my build log , hopefully i'll be able to add to it in the near future , and ill get some 1 ohm vids later on today. Here is one with the sub wired @ 4 ohms and the kenwood i have in the classifieds for 35 bucks right now. Ipad doesnt pick up flex like my touch did , but you can tell its moving air , but OMG it's so much better @ 1 ohm.

    re: 75 Buck Truck Build Log.

    In the near future i plan on actually spending money , im going to rebuild the box from scratch to 2.0 @ 30 hz , upgrade electrical , mod the earthquake , wire down to 1 ohm , and rape the sub. Then try to find a couple of usacoustics amps to replace the audiopipe and then upgrade the front stage.

    Yeah , Zade08 got to ride in it the other night and couldnt get over how good it sounds. I mean the bass amp is said to be TERRIBLE as far as SQ goes , and i'm using a audiopipe for my front stage , you would instantly think GARBAGE!!! But it's very well balanced sound and the imaging is flippin awesome with the mids and tweets where they are. plus the cabin peaks really low which is a plus IMO , i'm not a numbers guy , i love a good ground pounder that thrives in the 25-35 hz range and thats what this does.
