    1993 Chevy Silverado 1500 Build

    Hello,

    I'm new here so please inform me if at any point i'm doing something that is against forum rules.

    The Basics:

    Vehicle- 1993 Chevy Silverado 1500

    General- This will not be an epic world record build in any way.

    I am a senior in Mechanical Engineering so both time and money is limited.

    I try to do the best with what resources I have and can afford.

    On the side I have installed numerous sound systems for fellow university students.
    Majority of it being prefab that people simply have me install.
    I have also built a number of custom sealed boxes, and a small handful of ported ones for people to use.
    I have fiber glassed once and I learned the hard way through trial and error.

    This is my first aero/circular port build.

    I have too many hobbies and not enough time or money.

    I appreciate all feedback positive or negative as long as it is indeed feedback with suggestions and not just slandering.

    I WILL BE ASKING LOTS OF QUESTIONS AND SEEKING ADVICE!

    Gear- I understand I could have done better with some used things, but the majority of products used are all things I had laying around or left over from other people changing thr minds.

    Headunit-
    Alpine 9886

    Amps-

    I guess I don't know how to edit posts or are you not allowed to do so after a X amount of time?
