    Toyota Tacoma Rebuild (Sundown, Image Dynamics, Knu Konceptz)

    Decided to rebuild the audio system in my truck my previous build log can be found here. For the new build I've chosen 2 sundown SA8s powered by a sundown SAX-1200D for the sub stage, and a set of Image Dynamics CTX65CS components powered by a sundown SAX-125.2 for the front stage. I'm also planning on getting a Pioneer AVH-P4300DVD head unit, and I'm still waiting on my Mean Green high output alternator to come in. I've also got a 0ga dual amp kit, Krystal RCA cables, and some extra power wire for a big 3 upgrade from knu konceptz. Now on to some pics!

    Box design for the 2 SA8s each chambered tuned to 32Hz


    Sorry for the blurry iPhone pics


    Amp Rack shelf to be mounted under the sub enclosure

    Wood filler going on all the edges to smooth everything up. Lots of sanding to be done still. This box will be painted Imperial Jade Mica to match the exterior of the truck.
    More to come soon!

    it's mostly port, hence why it looks so big

    some 12's, some power, some wire and batts

    semi-sq system in the works

    Exactly and its dual chambered meaning each sub is separated with its own airspace and port. Its basically 2 boxes in one. The port is really long to get the tuning down to 32hz for some deep low end extension the overall dimensions are 45 1/4 X 14 X 19 with the amp rack shelf and everything it should fit nicely behind the seats in my extended cab taco!

    i figured it out after i saw picture with all your gear. interested in seeing this build done since i myself am going to be running 8's on 1200w @ 1 ohm as soon as i finish my box lol. the only difference is my 8's are cadence sw2-8s with one of their amps. really want to put more power to them but will see how the 1200w sounds.


    nice build so far btw.

    First coat of primer is done waiting for it to dry so i can start sanding and then do a second coat of primer followed by more sanding then some color coat followed by more and more sanding. I also ordered a Pioneer AVH-P4300DVD head unit along with the seperate iPhone cable so i can control my Pandora radio and Netflix apps from the head unit which is a very nice feature.
