Randal's 2007 Chevy Avalanche

Recommended Posts

Seriously, this vehicle is a blank canvas waiting for Audio / Video upgrades !!!

Completely Stock under the hood.

Should have no problems dressing up stock wires, upgrade to a pair of batteries, and a VERY Stealthy Sound Quality style wiring setup under the hood.

Thinking while I'm working under the hood, See if I can throw in a Cold Air System upgrade. This is going to be fun !!!

Interior is MINT !!!

Ordered my Dash Pad, Console Head Unit mounting Kit, the "all bells and Whistles" wiring harness kit for my Kenwood dnx9980hd head unit, and a back up camera (from Kenwood).

Once all that's installed, then we will start on wiring and speaker placement options. One thing I can say about the current stock setup is those Bose Tweeters SUCK !!! LOL

Been a LONG time since I've ran a large cone area sub bass driver ... possibilities are endless here !!!

Ideas have been rushing through my head with this vehicle. Now you see why I've been wanting an Avalanche !!!

These are the Amplifiers that will be run in this Vehicle (I have a pair) ... http://linearpower.com/LP2150.html

Mine are Prototypes so some specs may be different as listed. Also, modifications have been done since being built.

Small footprint Amplifier(s) will fit nicely under the seats of this vehicle. This is not the actual placement, just thinking how sexy those "plum crazy" purple amplifiers look in this vehicle !!!

Can't wait to start running wires !!!

I thought you had the newer model Kenwood ??

Not much room behind those radios is there ??? Got to go back in and hook up my Kenwood rear camera (just came in today) and run my RCAs.

I know, I have a LONG way to go before ever worrying about a sub stage, but I just couldn't resist measuring things out to see what I might can work up.

A friend of mine was delivering a vehicle to the local junkyard Friday and found something for me ... A State Trooper Tahoe. 

Said under the hood was untouched !!! Should be plenty of fun parts for me under that hood !!!

He told Mr. Dixon (same guy the found the Dually fenders for my GMT400) that I was interested with it and he said no one will touch it until after I get what I need. Wish me luck !!!

Think I'm going to give this a try. The Brutal Sounds Big Brute 15" driver. http://brutalsounds.net/product-category/subwoofers/15-inch-subwoofers/

Heard a pair the other day and was really impressed. I knew who built the enclosure so I knew it was mathematically correct. Unfortunately, I wasn't as impressed with the Amplifier but I believe I can make some real improvements with my Amplifier. The Linear Power 2150 http://linearpower.com/LP2150.html

Actually, the man had me a driver ready to go. Guess he wasn't taking no for an answer ... LOL

Should be fairly easy to tune and give me that "little something extra" I'm looking for !!!

Brutal Sounds just sent me the specs on this driver so I can start running numbers !!!

Actually makes the stock tweeters sound better ...

Disaster struck. I had my bed covers off doing stuff around the yard when it started raining.

Same day we took this pic ...

gallery_5_7_121767.jpg

Totally ruined my Enclosure Spent weeks getting things cleaned and straightened out. Shit happens I guess ...

Any ways ... I built a new enclosure and got it installed in the Avalanche.
