Tempe

Groundbreaking news: Tempe is now in Tempe!!!

Recommended Posts

After over six years of absence from the Valley of the Sun, I arrived in Tempe yesterday. So far my apartment seems nice. My old supervisor at the Tempe Home Depot now works at the Mesa store, which is where I transfered to. That store seems like it's gonna be a blast to work at!

 

Once I get settled in my system needs lots of work. I have six year old wires that desparately need to be upgraded. My RE comps sound wonderful for the price, but I need to move on to better things. While on the subject I need further work deadening my doors and door panels. My RE HC 15 does everything I could ask for in a sub, but I may be looking into maybe going to a 12 to recapture some of my cabin space, and my current box is fugly!

 

Amps are my biggest challenge. In a Ford Ranger I want to permanantly mount my amps out of the way of the sub enclosure. They are under my seats now, but removing seats means disconnecting amps. I need to remove the seats sometimes. I also yanked my RF 800a4 out of the ex gf's car when we just broke up. That will be a beefy amp for my bi-amped front stage.

 

I'm thinking of mounting the amps on the rear cab walls where the stock rear speakers are. I only use those speakers when my amps are disconnected. Another option is an amprack thing placed under a false floor which the enclosure will rest on. That would mean difficulty in making amp adjustments which I don't think I want to give up.

 

I'm glad to be back to my 2nd home (Chicago is home to me). I hope we can continue doing these meetups in the area. I look forward to meeting the local car audio nuts!!!

Yeah I did a budget install in her 94 Cutlass. When she got the 2000 Taurus I tried to make it a little nicer. I put the RF amp in there. Now I put in a crappy Lanzar 4-channel amp from the Cutlass. It's one of the Rack-Mount series, so if it's mounted vertically a heatsink is above the circuit board (good) and a heatsink is below the circuit board (amp is prone to shut down when it gets warm.

 

So far I'm ecstatic with my apartment. Yeah it costs $200 more a month than my old one in Mesa from six years ago, but it's much nicer. Even though it's a large complex it's rediculously quiet!
