    1991 toyota pickup build log

    1991 toyota pickup build log

    Yes I'm new here so hello to all. I'm just starting to get into car audio so if you see any stupid mistakes please let me know. It's all apart of the learning process. I'm gonna be posting in a step by step manner so it will be easier to help me too.

    Current Equipment:
    Pioneer touch screen navi (AVIC-F900BT) NOT INSTALLED
    Phoenix Gold 1.250R amp INSTALLED
    2 10" kicker comp 2 ohm INSTALLED
    2 6 1/2 planet audio 2 way speakers INSTALLED
    2 4 1/4 Kenwood 2 way speakers INSTALLED
    2 offbrand 3 way speakers INSTALLED

    Future Upgrades:
    Rockford Fosgate Punch P700-1bd

    Step 1: New seats
    -I realized that with the old school bench seat that it would be even harder to do a good build and get a sub to fit. So I added in 2 bucket seats that were on my old camry which I had sitting in my drive for sale. I wired the power seats and decided after it gave me a good little space between them to build a custom center council.



    Step 2: Measure up
    I went with to separate wedge boxes what connecting them it just a support to build the center council off of. Being a fist time build for me I wasn't sure which way to start so I just went for it. wedge box one has 1.52 cubic feet inside air space and wedge box two has 1.23 cubic feet inside air space. Yeah i know its not a lot but that is a much as i could possibly make it.

    Step 3: The build
    I've being doing construction and worked in cabinet shops for 5+ years and even this threw me through a loop. all the angels and going around the strange shape of the back wall. and plus making sure i would have enough mounting clearance for a sub and be able to move the seats back to a good position for driving. The center council was just as difficult as im mounting a pioneer touch screen navi in it.

    Thanks, after seeing all the good fiberglass work in this forum I decided to go with fiberglass. Gonna start this weekend I have a week of of work for thanksgiving so hopefully get a lot of the build aspect done. Still undecided on future set up though.

    Well changed my mind again, I'm gonna paint it. Hopefully be able to borrow a paint gun from a friend this thanksgiving and gloss black it and than spray a thick coat of polyurethane over it.

    Give me some input

    gloss black is going to show every little thing. check out the enclosure build section, and there is a sticky on making a good finish. why did you do 2 different boxes? are you only installing 1 sub? have you checked the port tuning?



    *IF I have forgotten to exchange feedback, please let me know*
    i buy broken amps....
    No, i will not "gift" paypal. please do not even make it awkward by asking. if the fees are an issue, I am usually inclined to add them. unless you have discount elsewhere, shipping is through usps flat rate, through usps parcel post, or through the roof..... i am in alaska. thanks

    Upgrading the "big three" 4 aug wire. Wanted to use 0 aug but the way I had to run it would be a pain.

    Looks good..I just did a friends 86Toyo couple weeks ago with the bench seat left in..We installed together a set of Boston 4 1/2 2ways in stock location, Alpine tweeters, and an old school 10 Kicker SoloBaric SVC,with an olsd school Alpine 3523 on the front stage, and a Hifonics VIII Pluto bridged Mono@4ohms on the sub,4ga run,and big 3 in 4 ga with an older Alpine HU,Sounded pretty good for a small system.Wedged enclosure on pass side sealed to approx 1.4 cu ft..just a tad higher than the bench,but still looked fine.He enjoys it...all smiles,and very happy with it.I got a cb with intenna,old parts amp, and yard mowing(6up front) and $150 bucks out of the deal for the speakers and amps/wiring

    Nice to hear its been done before, did you guys use dampening? And were you guys getting any sound distortion, I'm having a problem with that.

    He didnt want to go that far on spending funds for, as he was going to give to his smaller brother.No sound distortion that I could really hear other than panel vibration from the sub woofer.Clean amps/low TDH Zed/Duo-b Alpine.New wires through out with solid 4ga ground/4ga supply to fused distro block
