Hello, I haven't logged into this site in probably 6 years. Hello again.
At any rate I recently acquired a new to me vehicle, a 2004.5 Chevy Silverado 2500HD Duramax. I haven't had any interest in car audio for a long time but I bought this truck and it has some odd Kenwood head unit and factory speakers which sound really bad, even by factory speaker standards. I planned on just getting a pair of speakers for the doors and calling it a day, while shopping I got the idea to do some other stuff with things I found in my garage. It won't be anything fancy but it will do the trick hopefully. I also don't want to spend very much money.
The truck came with a Kenwood CD player with a USB port so that will probably be good enough for me. I just got some Rockford 6.75" coaxials for the doors, a JBL A5001, everything else will be sourced from my garage. I have 2 Sundown e8v2's that I got off the preorder when they were just coming out, I originally bought them for my truck at the time, which is about 4 trucks ago. One is still in the box, the other one I opened the box to look at it and now it's dusty and looks like garabage. I'm no carpenter and I think making a box to fit under the rear seat will be way beyond my skill set so I'm going to use a crusty old prefab under the seat sealed enclosure that I got somewhere along the way and it's been sitting in my garage as well. It won't be cool, have particularly good sound quality or get all that loud but it should be much better than I've had in 6-7 years so I'm pretty excited about it. I'm hoping to get the door speakers in tomorrow and maybe get the rest done this weekend. I'll post pics for everyone to laugh at as I go.
