    Hey guys

    My name is Jack! I'm in SoCal, and I'm looking to expand my audio knowledge and my own equipment.

    My Ride:
    Hey guys-mycar2.jpg
    Hey guys-mycar3.jpg
    Hey guys-mycar.jpg
    It's got a custom suade interior, 26" rims, exhaust. It's a 5.3L vortec engine. I'll be getting a viper alarm system for it.

    As for audio:
    Two 12" JL w7
    And I'm buying the amps right now, was thinking about putting in
    Two single channel hifonics 2100w
    Then get another multi channel amp or speaker and tweeters
    Two independent battery sources.

    The install which I'll create a build log for will go as follows
    The subs will be in a sealed box in the truck bed pressed up against cab, sealed enclosure, subs facing cab, the cab and bed will have a hole (already cutout) as sealed. Amps will be under the rear seats, eq in front dash.
    What do you guys think?
    I'm new to audio, so if you have any suggestions for components or how to make the build better, please let me know ASAp as I'll be buying probably this weekend.

    Thank you!

    Re: Hey guys

    that setup will not be very loud if that is what you are going for... and a blowthrough seems like a very bad idea. otherwise welcome to ca.com

    Re: Hey guys

    Can you elaborate? I'm actually not quite sure what you mean by that. Can you tell me how I can make it louder but still sound good?

    Re: Hey guys

    Welcome to the forum!
    Thanks for posting the pics of your nice ride.

    I, too, am not a fan of blowthroughs...esp not on an ext cab or quad cab pickup, where you already should have plenty of space for a large enclosure.

    Is there a way to make sure a blowthrough is good!

    Re: Hey guys

    Welcome to the forum! I am sure a lot of people will chime in and help you out. I am sure you already know the equipment and power are important, but not as important as the design of the enclosure(for the subs) and the implementation of the enclosure. You have an awesome ride already, so cutting corners doesn't seem like something you will be doing. Installation is the most important factor, and I look forward to seeing your build-log when you get started!

    Re: Hey guys

    Well should I weld a piece of metal back on? And do the enclosures inside the cab, I've never seem blow through and if you guys say it's not as good, I don't want it. The truck had that piece already cut out and sealed the space between bed and cab.

    So you already have holes cut in both the bed and the cab? From the above I was inferring that it was only cut through the bed....

    If the holes are already cut you might as well use them! I would not go sealed on a blowthrough design, tho. Kinda defeats the purpose, IMHO

    Re: Hey guys

    Your first word of advice? Drop the JLs.

    Haha, in all seriousness, welcome to CA.com! I'm kinda' new myself, but so far the place seems relatively friendly. I'm learning new things every day, so you're gonna be alright if that's what you've come here for. Have a good time!

    From what I recall, W7s can get loud and sound clean with the right setup. I had a friend with a 13W7 in his SUV and it was very nice.

    Definitely, I'm not disagreeing what-so-ever. However, you can get the same SPL/SQ for much cheaper.
