18' Silverado build 2.0

Recommended Posts

So after a 10 year absence I got a new 2018 Silverado in May and proceeded to add a Sub, well then I wanted speakers. Then I decided I wanted more & realized I was bit by the bug again. 

Current Build

- Audio Control LC2I

- Memphis  15-PRX275s Midrange

- NVX NSP65 

- Memphis SRX2.150 

- Sundown SD3 12" 1.25 cu/ft ported 32hz

- JBL GTR1001 

NEW SETUP

- Memphis 15-PRX275s

- Tang Band 25-2176

- SB Acoustics SB- 17NRX35

- NVX NSP65 (rears)

- Dayton Auduo DSP-408 

- Memphis SRX2.150 

- Skar LP-80.4ABV2 

- Sundown Sd3 12"

- JBL GTR1001

So yesterday I got started on the uninstalling of amps and wires, some sound dampening and a cutout of the amp rack.

Been raining all day and its unbearably humid outside, I did however start planning the amp rack layout...

Unfortunately me being me, something that shouldn't be too difficult turns into a huge project. So I took some pictures (ok well a lot of pictures but I'll try to narrow them down) and I need some help picking how I should lay everything out. I'm thinking about function (easiest way to adjust amp settings, where wire will have to travel, etc) weight distribution (want board to be stable, dont want to worry about it not holding) and of course looks!

BTW- in a few of the pics theres some obvious empty spots & that's because I haven't yet decided whether I'm going to still use my Audio Control LC2i so I left a spot for it in some setups. Thanks guys.

You might want to pack the cab corners with foam or denim since you cut the factory layer. Alot ov noise comes from those vents that are there

Here's some pics of my current box... This however wont be in much longer, putting the SD3 12" in my finances new 2018 GMC Terrain Denali & I'll be doing a new custom box for either 2 SQ HDS3.1 10s or 1 HDS3.1 12... 

Will def have updated build pics once I start that & get the front stage installed.

I also just realized I forgot to post the updated pictures of the amp rack actually in my truck. Not 100% done with it yet tho, was up against it time wise, was about midnight on a Sunday & I had work the next morning & if I didnt get it put in I wouldnt have had any tunes for the entire week and that wasnt an option. So I rushed to get it in... was pleasantly surprised however that it went in w/o a hitch, nothing had to be moved, seats fit back with no issues, nothing hitting/rubbing. Not bad for my 1st amp rack build & really only test fit the board, all the amps & components were laid out by just careful thought. I still expected some issue, but went right in.

Now I just need to clean up the wiring, not run exactly how I want it & have to order matching rcas for everything.

If you look on both sides of the cab in the pic I posted you can see the foam I shoved into the corners. I could just as easily packed denim in the same holes I just didn't have any on hand. 

 

Damn it I missed the fact that you tagged denim the person

I agree, It should of been filled. Not sure I would use any sort of cotton though. Could cause rust issues. 

 

?

If you keep the vents in place it seals the cab off as long as there isn't positive pressure like slamming the door or running the ac with the exterior draft.

 

It's no different then stuffing the rear quarters of a car. Same vents just different locations

It actually sounds really good... if you do a search you'll find a lot of ppl have had success putting them in a ported enclosure. Yes they were made for sealed, but can do really well ported.
