mklett33 posted a topic in Build LogsHey guys, I am officially starting another build. Rather than post only pictures I am going to take you guys along for the ride with video updates! Enjoy! Phase 1 is making my amplifier rack. Starting with making some insert pieces to hide the amps.
mklett33 posted a topic in Build LogsHello! For those of you who don't know me my name is Mark and I am the man behind "Car Audio Fabrication" on YouTube. I have posted build threads before (like this one: http://www.soundsolutionsaudio.com/forum/topic/57168-video-build-log-fi-bl-rockford-fosgate-focal-knukonceptz-tip/ ) and if you have ever seen one you know that I love to mix in "How To" Videos throughout the build that describe the process and show each step. This build will be no different! well, it will a little bit because I am going to try to mix in a lot more pictures for your viewing pleasure! I love to help other car audio enthusiasts young and old, newb and veteran, so if you see something you have a question about ASK! The Vehicle: Chevy Duramax 2500 HD Extended Cab (Will add pics soon) The Gear: Alpine Type R's 6.5" Component Speakers 10" JL Audio W3 Knukonceptz wiring Wirecare.com wire protection products Alpine MRP-M500 Alpine MRP-F300 The Install: Custom Fiberglass Door Pods with Vinyl Wrapped Inserts to accent interior and match sub enclosure Custom Fiberglass Subwoofer Enclosure (Specs to Follow) The Goal: Quality sound that integrates well with the vehicle and requires little to know permanent vehicle modification. (No cutting of panels allowed!) My Goal: Teach the readers of this thread as much about the fabrication of the pods and sub enclosure, as well as the install as I can. Let's begin! We started with collecting some of the gear, the ownder of the vehicle wanted to re-use his Alpine Component Speakers and JL Subwoofer, I talked him into purchasing a MRP-F300 which is the exact same foot print as the MRP-M500 and will allow for a really clean install. The components: The sub: The amplifier: (Still need pics of the 4 channel) I then determined what was needed wiring wise and put in an order with my friends over at Knukonceptz.com: I am very excited to use their new product the KNF-60, we were one of the first to get a production unit and I was really impressed with using it in a different build so I decided to get one for this one as well: All of the wiring in this build will be protected by Techflex which I recieved from our show sponsor WireCare.com . They really have some great products and the "snake" style techflex will look awesome with the tan and black truck. Its crazy how many colors of this stuff there is! Now the EXCITING stuff! I made these outer insert templates with a series of router techniques and skills, I discuss them in the video. The idea is they will insert into the pod and can be wrapped with a different material or painted to accent the install. Here you can see I will mount the woofer from the rear, and the tweeter is flush mounted: Finally I added some low temp plastic around the base template so that the top insert could lay flush. I show how I do this in the video as well. Well thats all for now, let me know what you think! Add this thread to your book marks and check back often!
Would just like to share my experience with the Evil in the first week of owning it. If you have any questions in regards to its performance or the like, just post a comment or question below. My previous setups have been, 15" SSA ZCON, 15" SSA ICON, 18" F.i. BTL ufo.
