Hi guys, signed up a fair while ago and didn't make a post until yesterday, usually just read the forum every few days haha.
Anyway, here's my car from the start of the audio build ( I can start it since I actually bought the car if anybody would like).
So this was meant to be a budget build and I think I've done fairly well for what I've spent!
Most of this will be copy/paste from my big build log from another forum but I'll edit some stuff if needed
1997 VS Commodore Wagon, Series II.
J064 Alaskan White.
3.8L V6 L36 Ecotec.
Stock standard, needs to be lowered.
VR GTS 17x8.
Alpine CDA-9851 head unit, Alpine Type J coax in the doors, PioneerTS-G1643R that are buggered.
14th July 2011 onwards.
$2500 with roadworthy and registration.
You can contact me on Facebook
if you like.
Day after I bought it:
How she currently looks:
Pics of the gear, I spent a total of $1937 so far, I think I've done pretty good considering the amps are second hand (DD was actually band new) and were both half price
2 15's, spool of Shok Classic CCA, 2 pairs of SB Acoustics SB-17 8 ohm drivers.
Alpine CDA-9851 for $50, cd player is broken but I don't need that function
Will be upgraded to a Pioneer DEH-80PRS when I can buy it.
Corner of my ash tray was broken so it was the perfect place to route the Ai-Net aux cable!
$100 for 100AH? I think so!
Okay, time for the temporary installs!
Box was made for a RE MT18 and was around 8 cubes net, put some big 45's in there to bring it down to about 6.7 but it was the best we could do, we also had to improvise and make a spacer ring to fit then reverse mounted it, final score was 142db @49Hz with no deadening in the car
