    Blazer daily beater system

    If anyone remembers my previous build for a budget SQ-ish system in an S-10, I'm back!

    S10 cheap SG system

    I sold the S-10, striped as many parts off as I could before hand and put them all on my new Blazer. I had to get a back seat to haul my *** trophy around in, he loves it too so win/win.

    System consists of:
    Head Unit: Kenwood KDC-BT945U
    Front Stage: Alpine Type-S 6-1/2" comps
    Front stage amp: old Kenwood 50x2
    Subs: (2) Image Dynamics ID8
    Sub amp: PPI PCX1250
    Sub Box: 1.25 cube ported @ 32Hz

    I upgraded the stock alt to a 140amp Escalade/Tahoe/etc alt, Big 3 and 2ga power cables.

    Before:

    Yeah, I've been into car audio for many years, since the days of Scott Buwalda and Richard Clark with his $10k amp challenge and 4" mids under the dash of his grand national. These days I just lurk mostly.

    I hear ya, it's hard to spread my money out when the Mustang takes all of it! There are some impressive builds on here, it's always a learning experience to me.

    Re: Blazer daily beater system

    I'm wanting to upgrade this system and build a false floor to hide the amps and wires, I hate how it's all spread out right now (PPI amp is behind the box). Would adding 2 more 8's make a significant improvement or should I shoot for a pair of 12's? I normally listen to bass heavy music and sometimes these leave me lacking.

    No replacement for displacement. You get that from cone area or cone throw. I would get 12's before I ran 10s and 8s together.

    Man, reminds me of 1998 when I had that exact Chevy. It was great and I like what you have done. I drove mine into the ground Nd then some. Like your system, enjoy!

    Re: Blazer daily beater system

    OK, I'm going to build a new box for 2 12's in the next few weeks. Should I go port back/subs up, port up/subs up, port side/subs up, port side/subs back? Or any variation ya'll recommend?
