Let's face it, I'm not actually someone who can brag about SPL or the amount of watts I have in my system. However, that's not to say it wasn't a challenge to install. In vehicles today, even the simplest installs can be complicated. Especially dealing with stuff like OnStar, door chimes, satellite radio and steering wheel controls. Finding the right aftermarket equipment to make all that shit work, running wire from the engine compartment to inside the cab, re-wiring all of the speakers, sound deadening, etc., well, it isn't a one day project for sure. Probably why I had no motivation at the time to build my own box!
Nice and clean man, I love the truck.
Yeah, I have no idea why I am a GM fan. :laugh: I must be nuts now that it is Obama Motors. :waycrazy:
There are a lot of guys here that have some extremely crazy builds and put in a lot of work. I give them props. :clap: But I posted this as I am sure that there are many here that take the same approach that I do. I used to be crazy into this shit but marriage, home ownership, career and kids tends to change things over time. Not to say that there aren't some diehards around these parts that will never stop building crazy shit. I do enjoy seeing those builds and the end result. Truly some crazy, impressive shit. Way different than back in the 80's when I first got into car audio. And no matter the approach, there is always something you can learn and take away from someone else's build. :fyi:
Nice build and nice truck.
If you were looking for new amps, check the Massive Audio Nano series. I have ran a few of the N4s and an NX4. They were great amps with a super small footprint. Something like an N2 and NX4 would probably work for you. They also make the NX5 which is those two amps in one chassis, but it might be a hair too long to fit into the console.
Yeah I most likely will not build my own box again, it was a lot of work, and I think by the time I do another build (long ways away) I will have the money to just buy a pre-fab box. I like your build, because its realistic and economical in that it doesn't compromise space inside your car, and it looks relatively stock.
Plus, as I am sure many know, it didn't all come together at once and I am constantly tweaking it and looking for new stuff. I'm figuring when all is said and done I've got at least $2K into it over the years, not counting all my own time working on it.
Your box looks good and if I were you, stick to building your own. The one I bought is OK but I still had to modify it to my liking and I think it may have been possible to get it a little bigger so I could stuff a larger sub in there....but also like I said, I don't need to rattle the panels loose either. :naughty:
