This started out as a budget build. I was looking to spend $500-600, didnt quite make it, lol. I have always like MA Audio so I chose to go with them. I couldnt get the front components that I wanted from MA, so I went with the RF's ( I have had 2 sets of these previously, love them for the price). I am getting older so this is less SPL oriented and more SQ oriented.

 

EQUIPMENT:

 

This hobby is really an addiction, lol....

Got the Big 3 done. Used the Flex-a-prene for the grounds and a short run of the Kicker HyperFlex for the alternator run, for looks...

 

Love my Hammer Crimper!

Used the stock location on the block and chassis (hard to see, but they're there)...

Finished Product (dont mind the cheap battery, I took my Yellowtop back in under warranty to get a fresh one. Im not running any system right now anyways)

Ran my power wire to the back, still enough to get all the way to the back tailgate

Had to run it under the carpet, next to the rear A/C vents, since there is no room for 1/0 under the door sills

Thanks Guys

 

I wanted to run power down the passenger side, so I made my own hole instead of using the factory boot on the drivers side. Used a PVC conduit connector to secure the wire in the fire wall.

 

Plan is 2 seperate enclosures, fiberglass, up where the rear arm rest are. Hard to explain but if it comes out like whats in my head, it should be great!

 

Got the hammer crimper from a welding supply company on eBay. Best $24 I spent!

did you have to do any modifying for that indash?

 

Nope, 04-05's came with the RDS radio. Its a double din stock. For 98-03 models, I have heard you can get the dash bezel from an 04-05 and the double din mounting kit and it goes in the same way. Not sure how the 97's are though....

Thanks, I was going to do 2 8's, but I got all 4 of these for $140 so I decided to make 4 work, lol....

 

I got the terminals on eBay as well, they are called "lugs".

UPDATE TIME!!!!

 

Well, I got most of it done this weekend. Ive found that my fiberglass pods arent going to work, theres not enough room for one 8", much less two. So I dont know what Im going to do now, probably sealed box for SQ but have thought about porting them....

 

On with the pics...

 

Thank you GM for making it such a pain in the *** to get to the rear speakers, lol.

I guess I forgot to take pics of the speakers installed but trust me they're in there...

 

Next was the doors. I wanted to leave it stock looking (no cutting the door panel) but the RF's didnt fit so I had to make a spacer and then the panel didnt fit over it.

 

Car_Audio_0082.JPG

 

So heres the finished product ( I guess I shouldve painted the blue piece too, its not noticeable in the truck but its VERY noticeable in the pics, lol)

Heres an extra pic of the back going back together, its starting to look like a truck again....

Next was the tweeters. I liked the way the stock system staged, so I decided to use the stock location for one tweeter and mount the other high on the a-pillar.

I cut my knuckle open pretty good while I was putting the seats back in so I wont get to building the box until probably next weekend.....

BOX IS BUILT!!

 

I didnt take any pics of it going to together as my camera wasnt home ( you guys have seen boxes built before anyways, lol). Snapped a few when she got home.

 

Just over 2 cubes, may need some polyfill, we'll see....

2 seperate chambers, 2 8"s in each...

Built solid and sealed, 3/4" MDF, glued no screws, and FG resined the inside and outside joints, rounded over the edges. Just painted it flat black for now...
