Thought I'd show you guys what I've been doing to my car the last few days-

_

 

Last week, my battery died. Ordered a Optima RedTop batt immediately after.

 

Got it in the mail two days ago and for some reason I decided to start experimenting with Plasti Dip that same day.

Replacing the battery in my car is a ******* joke. I will never understand who thought putting the battery in the wheel well was a good idea.

 

Anyways, got that swapped out and got each rim plasti dipped.

Took about 4 hours to dip all 4 wheels and change my batt. (Took so long because of the battery placement and because I had a ****** jack and had to do each wheel one by one.)

The following day my MRX-M110 and my HD149BT came in the mail!

Back to work! Got my old Fosgate R500X1D swapped out and the MRX-M110 in!

Got my ****** old HU out and the HD149BT in. Took about an hour to get everything installed nicely.

 

Don't mind the partial air freshener stuck in my vents lol.

I'll post a picture of the MRX if requested. I forgot to take one.

 

TODAY!

 

Blacked out all my emblems with dip and got my subs mounted down in my trunk.

I mounted my subs with a huge $20 piece of heavy duty velcro. Seems to be holding up very well so far.

Doesn't look so bad for a garbage old car ay?

 

EDIT: the entire reason I wanted to dip my rims is because the chrome was starting to fade. They were not taken very good care of by the previous owner.

      Hi there,
      Ive bought a 2015 Yukon slt with an aftermarket setup that gives me some issues.
      From what I found out I have the Bose oem amp audio that goes to the JBL MS-8 and from there to an Alpine pdx v9. From the alpine using passive crossovers (1 for each front side and 1 for the rear 2nd and 3rd row. So 4 overall) to the speakers. There is also a single wire going to the front top speaker which I guess is for all the chime/blinkers sounds.
      my issue is that the audio will suddenly will play very load from the rear right speakers and the rest of the speakers will still play but very low. 
      Basically all the phone calls that were once from the front left will be heard from the right rear as well.
      I will greatly appreciate if someone can direct me how to tackle this issue and find out which component is at fault( amps, sap, wires, crossovers and etc.)

      Not everything is pictured, like the Infinity MX20 I installed in the coin tray and the ashtray, or the JBL GTO19T in an empty button slot and center console, both of which are running on deck power from the Alpine UTE73BT as an add on because the Rockfords were inefficient. Just didnt want the channels to go to waste either.
      The Kicker Comp65VT sub pictured was blown in a couple days on only 100w rms with a subsonic filter. The box was made by LAB for a JL 6w3v3 tuned at 58 hz, so I bought one and a Kicker 140w rms amp and 50hz hp FMod filters. 
      For 20-50hz I got a Kicker loaded ported 12 Solobaric 750w rms 2 ohm sub with an Alpine PDR M65 mono amp with 650w rms.
      For speakers I originally cheaped out and learned a couple things, Pioneer TS 6x9s make great bass(on deck power), better than the JL 6w3v3 at 30hz without a filter.
      The Rockford Prime 6.5 rated at 45w rms were given 40w rms front from an Alpine amp and didnt sound as good as the Pioneers on 18w rms in the rear, but are now on 40w rms and overpower the Rockfords. All 4 xo at 80hz hp now that I have the 2 subs. 
      Hindsight, I should have gotten the whole 3 way Infinity components for the front, but I at least expected Rockford to be better than Pioneer. Anyone with 6x9s on the rear deck over a trunk, I highly recommend the Pioneers for cheap bass at 30hz. I would have bought the DX line with 110w rms each instead of the JL 6w3v3 if I had known.
      This is my first time on this forum and regret I didnt do more research instead of going crazy on Amazon one day with brands I thought I new. I'm hoping to get some critique from the OCD enthusiasts as I am on other forums that I'm knowledgeable on. My goal was an even frequency response from 20hz-20khz. Now I'm wondering about a surround sound processor lol.

      Hello, recently got a car (2000 Suzuki Wagon R+ 1.2) and not satisfied with the current audio setup. Bought an Alpine UTE-200BT head unit for Bluetooth connectivity and USB and fitted it, works a dream. However, I'm not satisfied with the current speakers in the car. From what I can find it only has two speakers in total, one on the driver's door and one on the passenger door. It definitely does not have a sub as the bass is gutless and doesn't improve when adjusted on the head unit. The car is about 18 years old so I didn't expect anything good but now that it's getting used more I need good tunes while I drive. I'm asking for suggestions on what I should get, nothing too crazy just better than standard and good bass and quality. I'm thinking of getting upgraded speakers in the front and also install speakers into the rear door panels as well as a sub in the boot. Is there anything I should be concerned about before I start buying parts.
      I'm a beginner when it comes to car audio, literally have no experience or any knowledge on car audio.
      Cheers, Kyle

      I have alpine type r 6x9’s and was wondering if I bought the alpine Xa-70f amp that’s rated for 120rms to run the speakers which call for 00rm but 600 watt max ? Thanks

      I want to bridge my 4 channle amp but I want to use it for left and right instead of front and rear I'm only concerned about the front stage with my amp and I'll use the the rear output of the radio to power my back door speakers, how would I do that since 1/2 bridged has a left and right and so does chan 3/4. would i just split front output and run all left to 1/2 then all right to chan 3/4
       
      I wanted to bridge a 4 channel alpine amp the alpine mrv I have a touchscreen kenwood excelon just so you know. also how would I do this with high level inputs
