Default 2008 silverado build

Okay as most of you know, i traded my tahoe for the silverado.
I miss the tahoe, but it wasnt practical. last picture taken of it before trading it in.

The pics will be in order.




took the stock lift blocks out to make it sit more level


after

painted emblems


installed DDM 12000k's

installed my headunit, and started building the center console enclosure







the enclosure is 3.18^[email protected], 40.5sqin of port. gonna be running two SA-12's downfiring on a saz-1500d.

still lots to do on the console, i was just test fitting.

let me know how it sounds, ill be watching this thread. Every1 keeps telling fu(k no to downfiring, but the downfiring boxes Ive heard have sounded good and got plenty loud.

Edit: did you keep the rims off the hoe to put on the new truck?

i am skeptical about downfiring also but it just seems more practical or im gonna be resting my elbow on a subwoofer. No i sold the rims, i though about putting the 26's on the truck but i wanted to lift it. I kick myself now because the lift aint happening anytime soon and those rims would have looked good on the silverado.

My temporary budget system!

Picked up a 15" FI BL, a box, and a power acoustik bamf 2000/1d for $350. The box the sub came with was trash, and was suffocating the sub, had the wires run through the port and everything. I took the sub out to see what it was wired with, had 16g between the leads and i think it was home theater wire. rewired it with some shok 12g and put some terminals on the box, than realized the hole for the sub was cut too big, and only 3 of the 8 screws would grab, so i had to rig it so i could recut the hole so i could still use the sub while i built the new enclosure.



I rebuilt the new box the next day, [email protected] and the sub more than doubled in performance, sub up, port out the drivers side. My first enclosure i have built out of birch, i liked it!




The amp, for being a not so great brand and for how small the footprint is, its puttin in work on this sub.



simple power ran, clean.


My little addition, ha.
