    Pruned all new members since 7/15, renewed our IBP license which should activate Spam prevention again, and deleted most of the spam topics I saw, should be a clean forum again. Enjoy.

    And the exhaust all but done. Building H-pipe... Front half assembled and welded.... I made a few adjustments since the pics and added chrome tips as well.

    The only real reason for a double din is the center console I installed has a spot for one. Once I thought about realtime use, I decided an easy to find volume knob was a high priority. Being as I already have that unit in Annie's car, I am familiar with it. A few shots of the front upholstery since I never posted them. The white that was in there was nasty AF.

    I understand that I wanted to stay in lower classes with this truck, but I feel that to get any higher than an 80 ... I will need to redo my A-pillars. Stage Width just will not go beyond the pillars. Best place that I can move the tweeters is to the Sail Panels. However, I'm scared I will loose Stage height and depth ... If they go anywhere else, it will bump me up into Mod Street Class and this whole year in Street Class will be a waste ... You know what ??? Fuck it !!! I just emailed a friend to get some Fiberglass work done to the Avalanche ... I've always said that the midrange drivers is the heart of an Audiophile system. So this is what I want ... Or for the most part, moving the tweeters to the sail panels and going more like this ... Moving the 5.25" driver closer to the sail panels to match the tweeter location ... If I use a 4" driver, I will move into MECA Moddex. The 5.25" driver will move me into Extreme Class, but Fuck it. I have the drivers and the ability to use them ... What you guys think ???

    I hated like hell taking my A-Pilars apart, but I kinda figured they were temporary anyways ... Installing a 4" driver or a 5.25" driver, tweeters would need to be moved. So This is where I think they should be ... Keep in mind there will be no final product until the mid range drivers are installed ... My apologies for the night pics, my time is very limited and I have no shop to work on my shit ... According to my tired measuring tape, they don't look it, but are level across the vehicle ... If not, I have a spare set of A-Pilars on the shelf. Tweeters are connected to the A-Pilars, not the Sail Panels ... My little problem with the Stage Width is definitely a thing of the past now ... I think, but I am not positive, that this might be able to Stay in MECA Street class ... I will Find out Saturday at the local Bass Wars Event. Both Mississippi qualified judges should be there promoting their favorite Bass Head vehicles !!!

    One hell of a mix. Sounds like some good planning too. J

    Been a while guys. I've made some progress despite the difficulties of working on things in my apartment. I think I got carried away with the size of these enclosures. These are my baffles, the ring is 3d printed petg. The white speaker mount is also 3d printed and will allow me to swap in other drivers easily. Starting the enclosures. Pretty standard stuff. I decide to build enclosure that sit on the dash rather then build off the A pillar. In retrospec I think it might have been better to put the 4 on the pillar and tweeter in the sail panel to cut down the size of these monsters. Next I aimed the speaker baffles the left side has to come out towards the driver quite a bit. I hope this doesn't kill imaging too badly. The pods where difficult to wrap, even with this spandex material I used. My solution to the creases in the fabric. After the first coat of resin on the spandex Test fit ya these look toooo big... Had to flock the enclosures in my kitchen... not the best idea

    Lows and your goals from above aren't exactly in alignment. Perhaps stating your desires more specifically would help. SPL by definition is playing one note as loud as possible with little care for the rest. It is never the ultra low either. Hard to know how to help...

    I think something a little more suited for this application in that power range that can favor the high output goals: https://store.soundsolutionsaudio.com/death-row-12-1500w-subwoofer-by-incriminator-audio/ I may be biased as it on the SSA store, but it still is an outstanding choice that aligns with the goals. If you are planning to up the power soon, my vote would then move to something like our SSA Zcon.

    Welcome to SSA. First question is what is your goals, and what is your power? Second, remove #4 from your list.

    In the end, it had no effect, their earnings were huge, and their stock shot up big time. Made me a few dollars.

    Very valid point. The mindset you have really dictates the actions you take and how your body responds. J

    Nice DSP, sweet mids. Those are one of the first ever shipped.

    That is either the oddest way to vent an enclosure I've ever seen, or you missed the meaning of sealed... For real though, nice looking work.
