    more pictures of the corner with the dry epoxy resin








    took a while and some playing around with the resin, but I got it to soak right through the sono tube and once it started to harden I got a really good transition

    more pictures to come of the port radius as well as bracing!

    I think these pictures look so cool in the dark like that.. just adding resin to the port wall sono tube throughout the night







    by the way.. I got the sono tube for free from my parents. . when they bought their new awning for their RV it came rolled up in a 20 foot tube! !

    Re: street max build on the CHEAP!!!

    big news actually!

    I've started getting electrical finished.. I've got four 1/0 cables going to all the rear seat bolts as well as two runs from the battery. ..




    I've made a busbar out of steel and bolts welded on.. but im going to go with an aluminum one and redo it..






    now for the big news! !

    I've found a xs power D3100 three hours from here for $250.. and bigger news..

    I've found a deal on two stetsom 7K2D 18VOLT amps and my spl labs meter is on route and im tracking the shipping.

    Re: street max build on the CHEAP!!!

    Thats is almost 100 bucks worth of gas for a battery… You can buy a new one for that

    I'm going to see if he is going to be making his way up here anytime soon or if I know someone going there. they sell those batteries for a retarded price up here.. $550 for either the xs power D3100 or odyssey 2150.. it's stupid, they say it's shipping but I got the four audiopipe amps in a pretty big box (50lbs) shipped from Ohio for $50??

    yout 100 in gas thats exactly what it costs lol... I normally drive my Cadillac escalade and its got the 6.0 high output so its like 11 mpg city and 16 highway. this dude lives 180 miles away or 300km for me in Canada lol.

    Re: street max build on the CHEAP!!!

    the deal for the two STETSOM 7K2D 18 VOLT amplifiers has gone through, payment is sent.

    I picked up the pair for a good deal from a db drags certified head judge DB DON. he has clamped them both at 11, 000 watts each so I think they might make this a possible world record contender in street max.

    I am aware I can't run more then 16 volts in my class which would bring this amps down to around 9,000 each but that might be all that's needed.

    I've also picked up a AD244 alternator, 145amps at idle. would like to externally regulate to 16 volt.

    Re: street max build on the CHEAP!!!

    I scored about 65 feet of 4 gauge wire for free from the caraudio shop i used to work at SUBSERIOUS EXTREME CAR AUDIO that I will use for speaker wire and possibly amp remote and relay power wire. what ever I dont use I'll set aside or just give back to my buddy




    I also had to pick up another 15 1/0 - 2/0 solder on lugs... some how when i got the first set of 15 i miss calculated.... had to buy these for $60.. as well as another roll of pure silver solder for $30.. so im starting to go over budget more then I would like.. I think we're around $1850..




    im heading to check out some alternators right now as the 55amp stock is garbage and useless.

    Re: street max build on the CHEAP!!!

    ok so I've just sold one of the audiopipe 1500 for $300.. and I think another is sold next week.. so im only gonna be able to test this out with 2 amps.. man I didnt even get to meter this thing with the 4 amps.. I guess I'll have to do it with just 2 and be gracious to say it would have been 3db louder with the other two.

    sorry guys but the wife really wanted these gone before I got the pair of STETSOM 7K2D 18 volt.. and I kinda didnt listen and got them anyways lol
