Hey guys. My name is Travis(though I got by renswic IRL as well). I'll be 30 this friday and have been married for nearly 4 years and have 2 most awesome kiddos. I found this forum a few years ago(08 by the looks of my first post).
Not much in the the really big bass or boxes eating up all the storage space, would like to do that to my truck, but with kids the space is needed. Everything I tend to do is from a budget stand point as well.
Right now we have 2 cars. My 1991 Chevy s10 4x4 'Baja' edition. and my wife's 96 Ford Explorer.
Audio for them:
Dash speakers; JunkButLoud 4x6's(came with a parts s10 blazer)
Rear speakers; stock 4x10
H/U; Alpine IDA-X305S(gift from a friend, music is ran though a iPod Nano or a flash drive)
Amp; Power Acoustic CH2-200
Sub; 10in kicker sub from the mid 90s(back before they came out with square ones)
Power is coming via 2g into a distro block and down to 4g(max the amp I used to use can hold). ran a 2g from the front simply because it is less to do later when i acquire speakers worthy of a 4ch amp and start using 2 amps.
Explorer is simple. Stock speakers and a Kenwood KDC-228(came with it). Who ever installed that head unit needs to be executed. Rather then spend the extra money on a harness that would work with the JBL factory audio, including the factory sub. they just cut the plugs off both ends of the harness and rand new speaker wire from the H/U.
No real plans for the Baja as it works well enough for me at the moment. At some point I'll have to swap back to the Sony Xplod 800w wally world amp I was given as the Power Acoustic will fit behind the trim panel in the Explorer where its factory sub and amp were. But first I need to grow a pair and build a box for the Explorer.
That's about all I got, if anyone wants pics of what I'm running lemme know.
