Default DonnieG's Jetta Build Team Sundown,XS, Audio Technix

So as some of you may know I've had this car for about a year or so now. After Slamology last summer I started to get kinda serious about car audio, and here I am now going all out this year in IASCA Stock Trunk 1. Thanks to the special support of my best friend Taylorpro, this summer we'll be doing everything we possibly can to get as much SPL performance out of my fat 4 door car...

SO here's the car, it's a 2003 Volkswagen Jetta GLI with the 2.8L 24v VR6 engine, mated up with a 6-speed manual trans.









I really hope everyone likes my eurotag...lol

Before I get to audio goodness I'll show you a feww more things that distinguish mine from others...

Here was my old checkerboard headliner, but thanks to fancy VW sunroof drains that leak everywhere the material began to fall so it was out with this..



...and in with







Okay so basically that's the car. I'll put pictures up in order of last year till my progress as it currently updates.

Here's when I first picked her up the night before senior week



Old tag



My first ever setup in the car, a single SA-15 in a box with 2 4" aeros that Taylor hacked up from another one of his boxes laying around, tuned to whatever.lol I don't have many pics of this setup but it was powered off of a audiopoop mini 1k, and did like a 41 with no work into the car, and stock hu.





A few months later, I sold that box and we built a 2 12's "Anton" box powered off of this POS atomic 3k which is what I used at Slamology, placing second in db drag and iasca stock trunk classes as well.












I also brought this box out to slam with me but it ended up being a pos as well on the meter, it seemed like the atomic couldn't keep a steady signal or something weird how it was wired with this box. Dubbing it the "flop box". Nick Cron may or may not have shot this into many pieces...



Here's the view as we swapped boxes in and out




Then I went through my DD phase, we all go through a DD phase...and then run out of money

Sometime around there I was like ef this stock jjonts, lets get a touchscreen, this being the result, and why you see that line driver....gay 2v preouts



If I recall the car did like a 46 at slamology, decent I guess, lost to Terry in drag.lol

Hello 2 m3a's





RCA LOVE

After slam I was able to become part of Team Sundown, and Audio Technix, and have had nothing but great support behind me since.


After playing with that side fire box for a while we decided to go with the whole port/sub forward design, but went with a 2 6" aero design to allow me to still play music decently, while still offering the same area as a single 8.5" which seems to be the magic size in trunks.

The swap...







And here's a fantastic picture from world finals when we were having some testing issues





Me and Taylor making in happen






After sitting in the car for a while, then the shed it was time to do a few things with the box











Height and length for the mouth of my trunk are both difficult to overcome, so one thing we had to do was cut the flares down a little



Here's some pix of deadening done thoughout the life of the car up till now

One of the new SAZ-3500D v.2's and my secondary battery a die hard platinum group 31-real nice battery for anyone not on the XS journey

But all good things must end for even better things




























Stockkkk trunk





And for now that's about it. The box is out of the car right now because I'm waiting for my ZV.3's to come in which I ordered like 3 weeks ago so I'd have them for the VA show this weekend.... If they don't make it in time I'll be using those 2 sa's you saw...however only one of them works due to the tinsel burning and breaking of the other.lol

So I'll put some more pix up after this weekend. Until then guys I appreciate any support, and look forward to seeing everyone this season!

Its done mid 140s on the dash on music. But we honestly havent done much music testing yet. It burped right at a 147 at finals last year legal with two sa12s on a dd m3a and no deadener in the trunk. With the deadener in the entire vehicle, Zv3's, and 3500's, we're hopeful for this season
