    a real newbie

    hey all i have just started car audio and so far so good. all the postd info is really helpful and the pics are great. i love music and trucks, so putting an aftermarket system in my truck seemd like an obvious, the truck is in need of work but the interior is nice and hopefully with some planning the sound will be too. ive already posted a thread "wiring truck" which pretty much explains what ive got and ask for any help on the subject of install. im one of those guys who rather learn and put it in myself rather than go pay some installer to do it, but i am a real newbie when it comes to audio so any help will be great
    Thx everyone

    Re: a real newbie

    haha ya knew thatd come
    but like i said a real newbie, this is my first vehicle and first audio system, im not lookn to comp. im just learn'n how to do it proper and i can see what all u have and its soooo amazing but im definatly not at any level close to that.
    the wiring i bought was as much as my sub and amps combined and i did that so i could upgrade to bigger and better but rite now i need to just figure out if 200mA will turn on both my amps and basic stuff like that
    so as i said before any hints or advise is very much appreciated
    Thx

    Re: a real newbie

    so my deck puts out 200mA for a remote turn on and i know that wont have enough for both amps but my friend mentioned somethin bout a relay, he said that u put a ground and 12V power and remote turn on to it so i get that but from where is the 12V line comin from do i run strait from battery or a distribution block or what

    aswell

    im gonna run a 4ga. line from battery to a grounded dist. block then run from there now question, should i run 8ga. to both my sub amp and my speaker amp or is there a better method, like i said before i have plenty (21ft. of both 4ga. and 8ga.) of power cord for a truck box.

    Thx all for the positive feedback

    Re: a real newbie

    my goal is to have a clean sound, huge bass is not my #1 objective, i love all music and a system that is for huge hip hop rap bass is not my objective with this truck, however in bout a year i plan on gettin a suv or BIG truck with tons more room and id like a BIG system but now still bein in school i have limited funds and wanted to learn how to build a nice system thatll impress for my last year at school, its my first vehical maybe not the nicest but does the job, and id like the sound to sound better than radio over paper cone speakers
    as for room its acctually not bad at all it has a rear bench seat that will more than sufice for 2 or 3 subs if wanted and the amps can go on the floor
    im thinkin of buyin a sealed encloser for the sub then mountin it in a fiber glass case thatll also hold my amps, will this work? can the sub enclosure be covered aslong as the actuall sub and face of the enclosure is not covered

    ill post pics of the space aswell as a sketch of my plan tommorrow or saterday

    thx
