Whats up guys! The time has come to start a new build log. As some of you may know I got a new car a few weeks back and I'm just now getting it on the road and getting things installed. It's a 1999 Ford Explorer with the 4.0L SOHC engine.
BRAND new Michelin's were already installed...
The plan for this build FIRST is to get everything that I had in the tracer installed in this. I need to see what my baseline is to see if its louder/quieter than the tracer was how it sits. If it's as loud or louder, then my goal is to hit ALL the Db Drag shows I can to qualify for finals. I REALLY want to get enough points to go but it would require several trips to Michigan and Ohio which would not be cheap. Anywayz, after finals, I will FINALLY be saving for some more equipment to FINALLY get loud.lol. Get some real power for once. So be on the look for that.
For the time being I'm installing most of what was in the Wagon with the exception of the door speakers. For the explorer I'm gonna run a single Crescendo PWX 6.5 in each door in the factory location and a set of Power Acoustik NX-5 tweets that will probably end up in the A-pillars. But we'll see if I can fit them in the door somewhere first. Onto some pics
ALL THAT ROOM.lol
Installed some Powerbass 6x8's in the back doors that I had laying around from and old build. Fit well and sound decent.
Extra Battery box I got at the JY to cut up and see if I can get my XS D2700 to fit in there laying on it's side. Want as big a batt as I can up front.
Stock 6x8's in the front doors. Have to add another 1/2" spacer/adapter ring and then a few door panel spacers for the new mids to fit. Will be really tight but I'm fairly confident it will work alright.lol. Mids come in next week.
I love how this center console/dask looks for some odd reason
The Pioneer DEH-4200UB installed with a Metra dash kit. The dash kit fits great and was VERY secure. I was actually a bit concerned about breaking something on install.lol
Lastly, these are the tweets I'm using in the explorer. Shoutout to Skip01 on these; I saw them in his front stage a while back and liked how small they were.
Anyway thats about it for now. I have a box of Audio Techinix wire coming into today for the Ex. BIG thanks to Coleman for that. That will probably get installed next weekend. And then everything will start coming together. Thanks for looking!
