6 sp4 18s, 6th order, lots of glass and plexi

Recommended Posts

So, I don't post much on the forums much anymore, too much butthurt, doesnt seem to be the case here however... 




But this truck I just bought has a huge following, and I know a lot of people liked it, so I figured id make a build log for it..


Im 20 years old and in college, Ive been in car audio since I was 16, and always build my own vehicles, my last being a


1999 Honda civic, build consisted of..


80 prs

2 Dc Audio Level 6 18s NO wall

Ampere Audio 7500.1

2 Ampere 125.4s

Crossfire 10s and Exodus 7" midbasses in custom door pods

lots of fiberglass and cool shit..


it was a beast. but I got in a car wreck, the car got totaled, and here I was just finishing up the final touches on the build, all the way back at square 1.. so once I got paid from the accident, I decided to see if I could find something that was somewhat pre built so that I wouldn't have to spend so much time building it, which is very hard to find.. a build that I would trust, as well as the vehicle being reliable, etc..


Eric lives semi local to me and I had heard his burb once before, and absolutely loved it. I loved how loud it was, and how low it could play, was exactly how I wanted my civic to play. So we worked out a deal and I ended up buying the burban.. but you see im a builder at heart, I don't wanna go to shows and have people ask me if this is Erics old burban.. so im gonna be modifying a lot of stuff. and improving a lot as well..


starting from the front of the truck, I bought it with

Both dual alts, execution 270 and Excessive 300

all wire

1 northstar group 34

80 prs

door panels

sp4s and box

sundown 200.4

buss bars for batteries


so enter my equipment

I took the execution 270 out and sold it, replaced it with a DC XP 270, the truck now charges at 15.0 opposed to 14.2

Im adding another Northstar g34 under the hood.

will be changing all the CCA wire out to 1/0-4/0 welding cable

leaving the 80 prs, moving it down to the center console, ipad dash with SMD OM-1 coming soon

door panels are currently built for 4 10s, and 4 super tweets, probably keeping these the same however they will be getting refinished, painted, and wrapped, possibly some plexiglass as well..

The box is for sure staying for a while, the sp4s MAY be getting swapped for some Team Fi 18s, not sure on that yet..

I have a Ampere Audio 7500 on the subs for now.. will probably be upgrading power as well, secret for now.

5 eaton 135 ah batts going in back with the bussbars I bought from Eric


The Burban up to when I bought it (SMD BUILD LOG)




My civic build to give you an idea of my build skills and attention to detail, along with whats to come in the burban (SMD BUILD LOG)




What you can expect out of this build..

A lot of fiberglass and plexiglass, a lot of bad ass fabrication, and a lot of exterior modifications and upgrades.


This is a bad ass build now but its about to get a hell of a lot better :nuts::morepower1::detail::2girls:



Build log for the burban and my Honda posted below


right when I got it home




money shot!




got it home that night, everything was fine.. next morning the water pump fails, and the driver door stops opening correctly, I think she was pissed at Eric for selling her, lmao.. So my good friend and owner, Cody Breedlove, of the team I am on, Team Heavy Flex, helped me change out the water pump... wasn't bad at all





Got some new LED tail lights




80 prs, 12.9 resting voltage



interior shots




oh the destruction, doors don't like that 17hz I love to play lol






started to put my DC XP 270 in place of the execution 270

Threw my Ampere 7500.1 proto in for some testing, yes im building a bad ass amp rack don't worry.. other 3 batts aren't installed in this pic either was charging them at the time.



went to the lake to do some testing, didn't bring my nice camera but got a few videos and pics of some hair tricks



Already getting ideas... Hmmmmm





Got an alarm as well.. must protect your investment people!



As I said Im in college.. so I don't have a lot of time to work on it as when I come home on the weekends im usually trying to make $ building other peoples shit lol. but by Turkey Drag which is December 7th, I hope to have most of it if not all of the audio portion done.

So since i daily drive this truck, play it damn near full tilt everywhere i go, and LOVE lows, ive caused quite a bit of destruction since ive gotten the truck, broken alot of shit lol.



the passenger door has gotten the worst rip in it i have seen to datehad to fix that, buddy of mine cody had an extra door he gave me, is red but the trucks getting plasti dipped and im gonna do all around the doors and ledges, so no red will be seen.




in the new door there is 72" of all thread welded into place, my welds are garbage, as this was the first time i have ever welded. but i am learning so take it easy on me lol, isnt going to be seen just needed it structurally retarded strong.


I also seam sealed, and tack welded 16 gauge steel  plate into place in the door, I have 22 sq ft of tantric deadener waiting at the house for me to put in as well. i want this door to be stupid strong, it has to be since i hot seat demo people all the time (window rolled up) and so that door gets BEAT on..

anywho, onto pics :BART:

old door that Eric built, small metal rod welded into place and tantric deadener as well



what ive done to it in 3 months of owning it lmaao:rofl:



after i got it off the truck, was very flimsy and moved like a piece of bread



new door



knocked the paint off ready for some metal!



1" all thread



my shitty welds LOL    pop corn in this bitch



seam sealer for the 16 gauge going in, Thanks @kevosinn for the advice



welded it in some more and did more seam sealer over the all thread



all done

went to go pick these up the other night and they didnt fit by such a small amount. fml:(



the guy that helped me do this is a mechanic/ technician  for this huge warehouse.. im 6'3 and have very long arms and very large hands to give you size reference for how big this damn wrench is. it must have weighed 40 lbs...




got a DC power SPX 300 to match my DC 270, dont have any installed pics but will get some. voltage will be on point once rthe harness comes in this week




Also started a retro fit with fellow member @Wood, hes helping me out big time, pretty much doing it for me im a newb on these and hes the king, thanks again bro.. will look similar to this, my projectors are more of a square shape and i have tinted lenses however.. will look menacing




gotta take care of your shit



wanted a movable work bench so i built myself this, had 2x4s laying in the backyard so used those and bought some $12 lockable wheels and goop from home depot to help hold the wheels on along with 3" screws, $20 movable work bench ftw..






amazing goop,. the best shit ever created, literally will bond anything to anything,. great for dustcaps and recones too..






started my new door panels as well, gonna be 1 10" and 2 8"s.. with all kinds of suprises in them.. ill talk more about them when they get further along, but they will ber beautiful.




also started the iPad dash for the truck too.

Interesting build!  How did you come up with your design for the series-tuned 6th order band pass?  What are the tunings, port area, and internal volumes you are shooting for?
