    Mitch86's S10 build

    Well heres a rundown of my build. Everything is coming in and I'm slowly starting to install stuff the equipment going in will be:

    4 D4 Skar vvx 8" subs
    Kicker zx1500 @ 2ohm
    Eclipse sc6500 component set
    Profile amp to the comps
    Audiotechnix 60mil deadener
    Cadence 1/0 wiring
    C&D 50ah under the hood and 100ah in the rear.

    Starting the deadening of the doors. Cleaned up the door panel

    Laid down some deadener. Still needs more I think. Probably should have filled the big holes with something solid, if it needs it I can always redo it.

    Pics of 2 of the subs. Beefy little guys:


    Will get some more pics as more stuff comes in. 50ah batt, Cadence wire, and Kicker ZX1500 should be here by the end of the week. Possibly start the box build before then. More pics to come!

    Subbed. Curious to see how this does. Those 8s look pretty beast mode.

    Should do pretty nicely. Forgot to mention they will be in 4cf @ 30hz. Hoping to kill the lows with 8's. We'll see how it works.

    I have 6 days off starting tomorrow, I should be able to get some work done. Think I'm going to get Lowes to do the majority of the cuts. Guess we'll see how that goes too.

    Hope they sound as good as they look! They fit in the factory mounting spot, that's a huge plus. Now I have to figure out what to do with the tweeters. Any suggestions on tweeter placement?

    Ill try to make a vid or 2. Wish I could find a meter near by. I'm sure it won't put up crazy numbers because I'm going with a large low tuned box. But hopefully they move some air!

    What vehicle? Can you get a better pic of the whole door? Im inclined to say the little sail panel. Drivers side pointing at the passenger right ear. Passenger side pointing at the drivers right ear.

    Not my pic but gives you an idea of what Im working with. I've saw alot of tweets flushed mid way between the grill area and the window controls. Not sure that would work well though.

    I was waiting for you to chime in. Is your drivers side tweet facing the passengers ear and visa versa? I glassed my pillars for tweets, but they are oversized for the tweeters I have now. And I never completely finished them..so that option is kind of out unless I buy new pillar panels.
