2009 Sierra Ext Cab 18" Zcon Install (Tons of pics)
So i got a new truck, 2009 Sierra SLE Ext Cab Short Box (4.8L V8)
Performance mods so far: K&N Cold Air Intake, MBRP XP Series Stainless Dual Catback Exhaust
Decided to go with the 18 Zcon for a sub. Only 1200watts for now, plan to drop in a AQ 2200 asap. Sounds great already though.

80sq Feet RAAMmat BXT II (doors, back, part of floor)

Just finished the build tonight so i have some time to make this thread. Enjoy and let me know what you think!
Should have taken more pics of the sound deadening, the whole interior was torn out and the entire back, back wall, floor and front doors are all deadened. it was well worth it too, with windows & doors closed there is barely any noise from the outside. No major vibration sounds either. The Headboard was vibrating real back in the back against the frame, 0.5" thick foam strips between the two solved the problem. no major vibrations now. this truck is build solid!
The Sub (Other sub used to compare is Stereo Integrity Mag 15)
