    Yeah, it's absolutely disgusting. Pharma Co's making billions a year while people literally die or live in insufferable pain because they can't afford medicine or treatment.

    As a musician, i like when music comes from in front of me. Ive had stage monitors that were behind me and it messed with my playing cause it made an odd echo effect with the rest of the stage playing in front of me. In a car, there is no real reason to have rear speakers, even in a 4 door.

    I like this Pvc for port material... it's 5.9" ID, will be sufficient on your power up to 3ft3 net or more and has less displacement (Less wall thickness)... but that's just me. Either way I'd flare both ends a bit. https://www.homedepot.com/p/VPC-6-in-x-2-ft-PVC-SDR-35-Riser-Pipe-6006-2/202564459 All that above ^^^^ is pretty specific, as often as you seem to change it up I feel you really ought to learn modeling. Results when changing out setups or adjusting tuning really starts to make sense once you can see the results you get vs. what you modeled. And you'll have a better understanding why whatever you changed did or did not give the results you expected. Once you learn modeling you'll be happier with whatever you choose to buy and will really be able to do designs that meet your goals (or get close).

    Sub sounds great. Box is perfect for rap. Metal sounds good also but wouldn't mind a little more kick drum boom. I'm going to experiment same airspace with a higher tune with a Aero. Or should I increase airspace and tuning? Is one 4" aero enough for this sub?

    Another option if you can find the equivalent in the EU of the Pioneer DEH-80PRS? That will also play cd's along with what you have in that option but doesn't do android and the newer iphones but does do bluetooth, sd card and usb. https://www.pioneerelectronics.com/PUSA/Car/CD-Receivers/DEH-80PRS After looking at Pioneer's EU site that is a nice head unit just missing the ability to play CD's is all. If that isn't important to you then go for it. Some nice head units over there that is for sure.

    cheap route 1 buy foam baffles for your rear deck, you wont have that much midbass but the speaker will be protected. Put your rear speakers on head unit power and bridge your amp to your fronts. Total cost 20 bucks and easy AF. Cheap route 2 remove the rear speakers so there's a hole in the rear deck leading into the cabin so you get more bass. Put both component sets to your front door or one in the kick panel and one in your door total cost around 100 bucks for one of those Q logic Kick panel universal enclosures or FREE if you dont care and you are willing to gut your doors and mount it on your doors, make some wooden or abs panels for a few bucks more. If your head unit is a pioneer head unit with active network capabilities, ditch the passive crossover on those component sets and run active tweets on channel 1 and 2, mids on channel 3 and 4.

    They're either afraid, don't wanna take the chance of perhaps messing up or don't have time, or don't have the right tools. Either case, OP....the more you get your hands on, the better you'll know. Sometimes in life we just have to take chances, weather its a good or fail. Basic HU install is one of the easiest things to do in car audio. If you get to a stuck point, let us know, post up a pic and a brief description.

    The goal is to make it sound like the concert/music is coming from in front of you, not behind you. Rear speakers can complicate that, even though it doesn't seem like you're going full SQ. Regarding some previous comments of yours I read.. you can outsource just the headunit install to the shop if it's an excessively complicated vehicle and radio wiring harness. Considering the fact that you're a woodworker though, you can easily build the box yourself and run some wires if you simply take your time and think about where to run the wires so they're not torn up due to a brute force method of doing it You'll benefit from getting a 9 wire conductor and using it to relocate the speaker wires from behind the headunit to the amps location

    If you run component sets the tweeters and mids will be ran off the front two channels. The passive crossovers connects the mid and tweeter. If you run active crossovers you will have tweeters on channel 1 and 2 and the mids on channel 3 and 4. This is the better option. Rear speakers are pretty pointless. If you must have rear speakers just run them off the headunit amp.

    The speakers in the dash look like 3” or 3.5”. Measure across the speaker to see what size it is. then measure down into the holes in the dash on both sides. The smallest depth will tell you how deep of mounting depth you can use for new speakers. Once you know the width and depth of your mounting space, post it on here, and you will get some recommendations of decent speakers to install. partsexpress.com will probably be your best resource for this. It looks like a single din head unit, so go to sonicelectronix.com and choose a new one that has the features you are looking for. You can also check Facebook Marketplace, Offer Up app, and Let Go app to try and find a great deal. Hope this gets you headed in the right direction.

    I would be to but yeah kinda hard after 94 surgeries and #95 next thursday. I was never any good at body work so I always sent that stuff to my friends uncle who wouldn't charge me squat yet he was one of the best south of chicago. Yeah rust absolutely stinks, especially on those G bodies on the bottom of the doors.

    I'm still into building it. I like buying bodies and going from there. I even painted cars for a living for years, and still love spraying. My grandfather painted damn near everything that came out of the Atlanta Ford plant in the 70s. I hate doing body work though, rust is the f*****g worst.

    Damn sounds like we're two peas in a pod. My family has been into cars since cars were created. I've built everything from dirt track to the drag strip. 455s are crazy heavy, put i did put a Pontiac 455 in a long bed 73 C10 once. Sounded mean af wide open. I love Chevy engines, small blocks are light and you can get crazy numbers, but my favs have always been the big blocks. 396, 427, 454. Had a 65 Impala, original 396. Put in a monster cam, the works. Eventually threw rod and it sat in my garage for YEARS. Still have the engine, sold the car.

    When I was drag racing at Chicagoland Speedway as I lived 15 miles south of there in Wilmington, that engine was bumped up to around 480hp at the rear wheels per the dyno. One of the guys that my dad worked with at Mobil Oil also worked at a engine shop in Indiana that built Nascar engines so he had a hand in helping me build it and acquire parts. Granted I knew how to do it at 8 years old but he helped with the dialing in and setting it all up. When I sold it it was because I was moving to florida so I ripped everything out and sold it as a rolling car for 400 bucks. Sold the engine and what not to a friend who actually still has it although now it is up to over 500hp with a shot of nitrous as well for another 100 or so hp. But the block is on it's last legs as he is now at .60 over with it as I was only at .10. Plus I think he is running longer rods, not sure though. IF I ever get another one I am going to do it right with a 403 Olds with around the same 480hp w/ 4 speed automatic built to withstand 650hp+ along with 3:55 gears or something that will also work on the highway. Just want to do something different then the same old "go to a chevy small block in a G Body that everyone does!" 455 would just be too much on the car and too damn heavy the 400/403 works just right and setup right they can really make some monster torque like yours did and tons of hp to match it up. I'm betting it was higher then you think it was. But depends on cam/cylinder heads and all that jazz. I ran aluminum cylinder heads which really upped the hp especially at 2.02-1.60 ported and polished matched to the intake.

    I put a big block Olds 400 in mine. Never had it dyno'd or anything and doubt the hp numbers would be that impressive but it was a torque monster.
