Default Gumby's Tundra Build... Ipad, Secondskin, Dayton, JL...

I've been trying like hell to keep my wallet away from car audio, but i couldnt resist any longer. Thus, Project Tundra Begins! I've been crazy busy with work, and i'll be getting married in may, so this will most likely be a slow build.....

Speakerstage:
-Dayton Classic 6.5" mids in the front
-Crescendo Audio FT1-SE supertweeters in the front
-Dayton Classic 6.5" mids in the rear
-(1) JL Audio XD400/4

Substage
-Subs are still undecided at this point.
-(1 or 2) JL Audio XD600/1

Misc
-Knukoncepts wiring/rcas/distros/etc
-120 sq ft damplifier
-90 sq ft luxury liner
-10 sq ft overkill
-Batteries are undecided until I pick subs/amp quantity

I will be using an Ipad with an Alpine PXE-H660 audio processor. This processor should allow me to use the alpine as a stand-alone headunit that will work with most of my steering wheel controls. I dont think i'll be able to use the "seek" command, but volume and bluetooth should be integrated.

The reason I am undecided on the subs is because I need to decide how much leg room i want to sacrifice. If i wanted, i could put some beastly subs behind the rear seat. However, I would like to keep the roomyness of my cabin, so i may limit myself to 6" or so of mounting depth. We'll wait and see for now....

I will also be glassing the supertweeters into the stock tweeter location in the doors.

The goal of this build is to have a halfway-decent aftermarket stand-out stereo while maintaining a "simple" look. The only visual differences will be the tweeters and the ipad, but I'm hoping i'll be able to make them look relatively "stock" by using similar finishing materials.

Here is my patient, a Toyota Tundra Crewmax LTD....








And some more eye candy. Check out how small these XD amplifiers are!





























I think i may have gotten a little carried away with the quantity of luxury liner i purchased. This stuff is HEAVY. We'll see how much of it i can fit in my rig hopefully tomorrow

Im finally home for a change to get started on this. Ive been traveling like crazy for work.

Still debating on the substage. I think i've made the executive decision to go with two XD600/1's, but the big issue is deciding between some larger drivers or sticking with a pair of the new SA-8v2's. They look pretty tastey and I'm a sucker for beefy 8's.

First off, my opinions on the secondskin deadener. The damplifier looks decent at first glance. I'm sure it will perform well. However, there is a good 1/4" on each edge of the aluminum that does NOT have butyl on it...... kind of a bummer, but oh well. I'm used to using Raamaudio deadener, which came in a roll with butyl all the way to every edge. Minor issue, but nonetheless still disappointing.

As for the luxury liner, this is some beefy stuff. Its going to be a nightmare going through and drilling out all of the holes for bolts/guide pins/snaps/etc, but i think it will be worth it in the end.

I left a majority of the stock deadening material in. I couldnt find very many places where the bonding was failing.

























I'm hoping i should have the floor done by the end of the weekend so i can get my seats back in. We'll see how that goes though.

The floor is all finished up. I might get started on the rear doors tonight.

Everything is piecing back up nicely though. I thought the carpet may not fit right, but it went in without any issues.

Truck looks bad azz, what kind of lift do you have on it? Is it just a leveling kit? I take it those are 20's on 33?

You could do a couple of the e-12's. I'm sure there is enough room.
