    Re: 2005 Buick Rainier Build Log

    I went to the competition in the flyer above and scored a 70 in Street SQ without my NeoPros and got a fancy little first place medal.
    Wednesday, I had surgery, so haven't been able to update, but my NeoPro V2's are here! If the pain killers work today, I'll get them popped in the doors. These things are beasts, even compared to the V1's, which were pretty burly themselves. Can't wait to hear how they sound!

    The NeoPro V2's have been in now. I have them actively crossed at the amp, at 60Hz and 4kHz and are running on 90 watts. My tweeters are playing from 4kHz up and run off 75 watts. I crossed the Neos low with the subs to help with imaging, so the lower midbass frequencies don't drift toward the back with the sub-bass. It seemed to do just the trick. The kick drums sound like they're coming from your chest, while the upper frequencies lay at about eye level. I got lucky, working with such a large vehicle, because it needs hardly any time alignment to get the staging right.

    Even off half power, these NeoPro V2's get loud, and have an extremely clear tone from them. I had the V1's beforehand, and the sound was nice from them, but I believe the V2's sound slightly better. With my doors sealed, they have a nice warm low end, and the upper mids scream. I attenuated them slightly, but testing with my cheap RTA showed that they had a fairly flat response within the frequency range I have them playing on. For those who say PA drivers aren't any good for SQ, I'm gonna call you dead wrong. Just takes a bit more time to tune, which isn't a big deal in the great scheme of things. Spend the extra time for the extra amazement.

    Overall, I'm quite pleased with the sound I have right now, but I do plan to go to an active-passive 3 way front stage, using CDT HD 320 components for my dash and A-Pillars to bring more of the midrange up to the dash, while still keeping the midrange and highs active with the NeoPros.
    HD 320

    NeoPro V2's mounted in MDF baffle, and sealed to the stock grill with great stuff and insulation packed tight into the doors.




    I did a layer all the way around the door, and then packed as much insulation into crevices as I could. Vibrations in the doors are SIGNIFICANTLY reduced.




    I'm purchasing, from dbeez, CDT TW-25's to replace my Alpine Tweeters. Hopefully, soon afterward, I will get a DEH-80PRS.

    Also, my birthday is tomorrow!
