    street max build on the CHEAP!!!

    Ok so I've gutted my geo metro of all previous gear and wanted to see what I can do with the tightest budget in mind.

    I'm going to log all purchases involved in or related to the build.

    Re: street max build on the CHEAP!!!

    ok so first off,.. i need a car and i want a 2 door hatch back. so i look online but check listings in small rural towns near by. you always hear of people getting this so called "deal from a farmer". i find a 1994 Geo Metro 5 speed and the price is listed as "Trade".


    so i call for the location and meet him there. he already has it running, so i start to scope it out. my mind is racing with ideas of a massive wall and tons of amps//batteries. peaking into the tinted windows i spot these black seat covers with dragons on them and a cobra shifter nob with eyes that light up!



    instantly i burst into tears and laughter... i guess his mind was racing when he got it to!! so i jump in and take it for a rip. the car drives well and i ask him what hes was looking to "trade" for. he replied with "a cd deck". in disbelief i said well i dont know if have anything laying around but i can check. when i got home i riped through my garage in search of something. AT LAST!


    i find a OLD OLD cheap Panasonic CQ-dfx100 that i got from friend 3 years earlier for free when his car went to the junk yard. i meet up with the small town cowboy and his eyes light up and says DEAL, and the car is mine lol.

    now i need to find some gear!!

    but what budget do i want, or better yet what will my wife let me spend? lol.. so the search is on.

    Re: street max build on the CHEAP!!!

    so i figured if i had never competed before or had absolutely no gear what would i need??

    so i hit a second hand shop and looked around. HEY!!! look at that FLUKE 27 Multi Meter.. i would need one of those, ohhh and look a nice Clamp Meter.. these are a must if you want to compete



    oh and look at the ASKING price on the originally new $580 FLUKE ... $39.99???

    and the clamp meter.. $69.00..

    "hmm, would you take $90.00 for both?... sure they said.. lol and i was on my way starting off real CHEAP, a car traded for a 12 yr old deck and $90.00!

    Re: street max build on the CHEAP!!!

    next up on the list... POWER!!! yeah baby, i need mega power cuz i can only run 4 mono blocks in street max.

    so i tried for about 2 weeks trying to keep it as low as possible but could never land a deal that was in the budget,.. which by the way i had now set at $1600.00 as a limit. i thought, if i could hit 160db with $1600 in street max including absolutely everything needed,.. that alone should be a record!

    but i couldnt find anything in the price range. my offers to other members on this site might have scored me a few deals,... if only not for having to get items shipped to CANADA!!!

    so i moved on to finding SUBWOOFERS!! and beasts at that.

    i made a call to the Car Audio shop i used to work at and asked if he had anything "on the cheap"... he listed some Absolute USA.. i said "naw bud, cant win with that".. then he says i got some Performance Tecknique... "BAHAHAHA,.. let me guess.. next your gonna sell me PYRAMID", he said well no i havent got anything... wait... i have two 15" ATOMIC's with the 818 motors that we competed with in 2000 to 2003..





    i say to him "how much... and remember i know what the demo cost on these were bud" :p

    he said... "i dont know, $400 - $500.. something like that"

    i reply with "$300.. for the pair and ill put a "SUBSERIOUS" company sticker on the car lol".

    he says.. "**** your cheap.. $350 and thats it".

    SOLD!!!



    but i still need to score four powerful amps, "better check my inbox when i get home to see if anyone responded to my offers online"

    Re: street max build on the CHEAP!!!

    I get shot down on all offers for amplifiers online.. ****!!

    so i figure, i have to bite the bullet on something so i can start the build and start testing but it needs to be cheap!

    oh no, you didnt????








    well i gotta do something and who knows. 2 AUDIOPIPES 1500's strapped to 1ohm on each Subwoofer might do the trick,.. FOR NOW!

    Re: street max build on the CHEAP!!!

    so here i am cruising through the "free" stuff in a local classified... HEY NOW! an OPTIMA red top? can it be!


    and 50 feet of 0 gauge, 30 feet which have been turned into booster cables?



    well i'll try it out and see what happens lol.


    i cant seem to get the battery to hold a charge, it might just be screw'd, but the cable on the other hand doesnt look burnt on discolored. so far the total cost of the build is $1193.23.. and im still gonna need a good battery and a ***TERMLAB*** ANYONE GOT ONE ON THE CHEAP??? ive only got 406.77 left in the budget! can it be done?

    more to come....!

    Re: street max build on the CHEAP!!!

    LOL. This is awesome!

    I'd suggest the MAKEITLOUDER.COM meter. It is very accurate if you have an accurate DMM. I have an extra one at home, but I'm in Florida for the next couple weeks so you might just want to call or email Will at makeitlouder.
