I happened across a really interesting vehicle by chance on Craigslist last week and decided to pull the trigger !
2006 Chevy Express 3500 w/ Duramax Diesel Engine!
I test drove it and it was alot more comfortable for me to drive than most huge vehicles and has some real power behind it as well.
I am looking at mostly music and mostly impressive demoing but would plan to compete in bass boxing and bass race with it.
We are talking to Shok about wiring, planning Excessive Amperage for alternators, XS Power 16v batteries, and of course Sundown subs, amps, and mids.
As of this moment I am thinking about 8x 18" woofers in a 4th order... initial box estimates put me at something like 100 cubes or so while leaving room for box thickness, amps, and batteries... so looking @ 3-4 cubes or so each sealed and 8-9 cubes or so each vented (so either 1:2 or 1:3).
Other thoughts have crossed my mind like a bunch of SA woofers... but I know plenty of our Team members have done that already.
I don't expect this to get done quickly by any means as we are looking into ways to beef up the doors, floor, and ceiling before we even touch the woofers... we'll also likely get the door panels made first as well (these doors look like they can hold a ton of mids easily).
* 8 lugs are nice for this kind of weight ! Later on I'll put nice rims on it as well but these will do until the real work is done.
* Dash isn't the best for SPL by the looks of it but that isn't the biggest concern for what I want.
* Has a ding on this side... but overall a clean van.
