Default stylez12321 Lincoln LS JBL build log

So far this build has taken me a year to afford and gather everything. A local audio dealer is going to sponsor me for his business and Im going to have all the say and help install all the equipment. Honestly it would drive me nuts paying someone to install my setup.

Headunit: Pioneer AVH-4300dvd
Subs: 2 JBL W10GTI MKII
Amps: JBL GTO14001D and JBL GTO1004
Components: 2 sets JBL MS-62c
Diehard Platinum Group 65

So far this is all the audio equipment. I still need 1 set of components. Im looking forward to this sponsorship and having this car and my Tahoe done before Summer 2013.

Now on to some pics.















Out with the small crappy prefab and in with a better built enclosure. Keeping it as a sealed box for now.

Elite motorsports and designs in Elkhart. Guy that runs it seems pretty legit. Starting more install work in 2 weeks. Basically getting free install minus materials. Not a whole lot of sponsor since I've already bought almost everything. Mark what type of processor would you recommend for this type of build?

What are your end goals? Are you just wanting quality sound or are you wanting full SQ. Do you want real time adjustments or do you want to set it and forget it? An eq will give you adjustments but wont process like a dedicated dsp. Have you looked at the RF 360.2? The audiocontrol unit is nice as well.

I've looked into both as well as the jbl ms8. Really don't know anything about eqs or processors. My equipment is more heated towards sound quality although I like bass to much to run full www. guess I just want a great sounding daily car.

The ms8 is a great unit. Similar to the 360. Really cant go wrong with either but they can be time consuming to setup and learn. A cheaper option would be a 3/4 wat active crossover and something like a 7 band eq. That would give you good sq and easy user controls. If thisis your first venture into sq that is where i would start.

Go with the MS8. It's not that hard to setup and gives you a good base to start with. The MS8 really isn't much like the 3sixty.3 unit. The 3sixty.3, PS8, Mosconi 6to8, Helix P-DSP, etc. are more alike than the MS8. You can do a few adjustments afterwards. I recommend it to anyone looking to get a good sounding car without having to do a ton of manual tuning. I currently run one in my car but I'll be going with something else soon.
