2001 SEL System rebuild
Please Rate this thread & post up what you like/dislike on my build or ideas for improvement. I'm always looking to better my ride. Thanks (Constructive criticism is welcome, Haters are not!)
I always wanted to put a good system in my car, but I refused to pay the $200-250 for the digital dash kit from Metra. I originally had the mach audio system and it sounded pretty good so I just added a sub stage using the speaker inputs on my EQX. Powered by an old school Orion 2350gx pushing 2-15"solobarics in a sealed box (My avitar shows it). I had no issues and it sounded great as long as I kept the subs turned down because they would overpower the mach audio mids and tweets. About a year ago I came across a guy selling the Metra Digital kit for $120 bucks on caraudio.com, and jumped on it. At this point I decided to go all out and build something that would get loud and still have excellent sound quality. I am sorry for the lack of pics on some portions of this build but once I was in "work mode" I would forget to take pics. Anyway here is the list of what's in the car so far:
HU- Alpine 9887 (3-way active) with ipod cable
Front doors- Silver flute 6.5" and Seas Prestige 1" tweeters
Rear Doors- CDT 690cfx
Sub stage- 2-15" American Bass XFL's in custom designed enclosure
Amps- a/d/s M860 (8x60rms), Rockford Fosgate T1500bdcp(1x1500rms)
Wiring- Stinger sheilded RCA's, 0/1 pure copper welding cable 2 runs, All speaker wire is Knu Conseptz 14ga.
Power- 2-yellow top Optima's, Power Bastard 220amp alt. (195amp real world)
Deadener- 3 bulk packs of Stinger roadkill (almost 100lbs.)
Security- Viper 2way paging alarm, and 9mm
