    Starting over in my 2011 civic SI

    Going for a slightly more aggressive sub stage this time, also plan on improving the power to the front and rear fill but haven’t decided on how just yet. Aside from the head unit (pioneer avh-p4300dvd), and front stage speakers (kicker ss 6.5 component set) I am starting from the ground up, I even ran nicer RCA's, ditched the 4 gauge and ran some 0 gauge stinger HPM.

    I will start the build log off by stating my intentions...

    BIG 3 UPGRADE
    DISABLE THE ELD SYSTEM IN THE CAR (NEED TO RESEARCH HOW TO DO THAT ON THIS VEHICLE)
    SINGLE RUN OF STINGER HPM 0 GAUGE
    WILL ALSO UPGRADE BATTERY IN UNDER THE HOOD AND ADD ONE IN THE TRUNK
    HEAD UNIT: PIONEER AVH-P4300DVD
    FRONT STAGE: KICKER SS 6.5 COMPS
    REAR FILL: TO BE DETERMINED (CURRENTLY SOME POO POO QUALITY KICKER 5.25'S)
    AMPLIFICATION: ELEMENTAL DESIGNS NINE.5 (THIS WILL CHANGE, WANT MORE POWER FOR SUB)
    SUB STAGE: DC LEVEL 4

    Box build starts next week, will be doing it at @mylows10 place over some BBQ and good food. THANK YOU JIM, guys like you make this forum even better! Pics will come soon.

    Now for the pics, let’s start it with a little showing off of the tool arsenal I am working with.

    My new tool box, just delivered yesterday.

    you wouldnt believe me if I told you but I got it for about 2500, after I traded in my tool cart for 1000 (I payed 850 for it). He hadn't sold a tool box in 2 months so I was able to bring him down quite a bit, and he gave me about 400 bucks worth of free tools.

    I believe it retails for just over 7k.

    Thank you sir, the orange is growing on me. The snap on guy told me to put a KTM sticker on it, I laughed at him and said I have never, and will never own a KTM.

    well i was kinda considering it as a whole. roughly how much do you have in the whole box. my last box was a cornwell and i paid 3800 for it custom painted

    I will have about 4k just into the box when the stainless top arrives. If I include tools I would say around 10-12k if I include all of my tools that haven't been placed in the box yet.

    seems about right i know my initial cost was up there but the warranty is worth the money if you use your tools like i use mine

    I agree, once you use a snap-on or other high quality tool you will never want to use anything else. Also, when you pay 2-5 times the amount for a tool over craftsman you tend to take much better care of it. The warranty is sick! I gave my snap on guy a 15 year old ratchet that was broken and he gave me a brand new one on the spot.
