Default Just Another Loud Tahoe

So some of you might know I owned a pt (with transformers stickers ). Welp. It decided to not let me know it was low on oil, more specifically empty. Started knocking and wasn't worth fixing. And so the pt is gone for good now.

Picked up this baby for $2300. 130k miles and transfer case leaked. One new tailshaft seal and a fluid change later she is good as new. Here it is:



This is going to be a slow build log so be ready for a snails pace.

Went out today and replaced the starting battery with an old bt100. Fits like a glove.



yeah the pic quality isn't the greatest.

Will probably permanently secure the battery tomorrow and maybe start fabbing up my second alt bracket

Pretty productive day today. Almost finished an alt bracket to fit my stock pt alt onto here. I got no money to spend so I figure two stock alts are better than one lol.

Also modified my battery bracket too. And starting resin'ing. Can't decide whether I leave it that color or paint it black to match everything else.

Here are pics:







the resin really makes the different layers pop.

I guess I forgot the most important part lol. The plan for the substage is 3 IAD 18s. 2 500.1s or 1 1100.1. the bt100 I already have up front and probably 4-6 nsb110s (already have two).

Feel free to post up guys. As long as they have legitimate suggestions or questions.

Got back from Texas and Got some work done today. Should be bumpin with a temp setup by tomorrow.

Cut into the firewall to get my wire through.

That's 2 runs of 3/0 and 2 runs of 4/0 ofc. Might as well do it right the first time lol.

Here's pics. Still deciding on how I am going to route the wires under the hood. and possibly need to hit up TM for some blocks.

Tahoe Update plus Temp System Video - YouTube

And in related news the second alt is on the back burner. Had a rather large problem arise and I don't want to put in the effort atm to work around it.

Any specific reason why you ran the wire in the truck instead of under the truck and then tapped into the floor in the back? Just curious.

A few reasons actually. biggest was I had already used runs of wire and they wouldn't reach if I did it that way.

Second I felt the life of the wire was safer inside the cab away from the elements.

Third.. if you don't know the wires are under the carpet you literally have no idea they are there.

I see. I ran my under the truck on my 04. 4 Runs to just behind the back seat for my battery bank. But Yeah As long as they stay flat like you have them, shouldn't be noticeable. Like I said, Just wondering.

Back at it. So updates.

3 tantric HDD 18s were bought. Just waiting on Murphy to finish em up. Gotta start repping my new team

Tantric 4.1 might be in the near future. Oh and I bought a used 300 amp ohio gen. Should be awesome.

So as to current progress. I rooted my nexus 7 and flashed a custom rom for my tahoe.

It really is the ultimate headunit. Navigation, Spotify, Pandora, Poweramp, Skype, Torque... the possibilities are endless.

Here is the dash piece to start:



Used cardboard for a stiff flat piece. Blue tape on the back of it so the resin doesn't stick.







fiberglass cloth down:



Only got 1 image of after resin'ing with a little trimming:



Added some bondo filler to the top gap and bottom. Adds strength and necessary for how big this screen is:



And here is test fitting the tablet. All I can say is DAAAMMMNN its a tight fit. I got about a 1/16th gap of play. For anyone trying to undertake this. It will work but it won't be terribly easy.



Here is the layout for the rest of it:



Top left is push to start from my advanced keys system.
Below that is pac-lc1 for bass level control
Below that is 4 toggles for Nexus, Dsp, zapco and AB (soon to be tantric) power.
Then below the Tablet on the left is the Minidsp VOL-FP



The left pot is adjustable and a push button. So I can change Volume, source and presets.

Only going to have one input source which is digital input from the nexus 7. Presets will most likely be Non eq'd, Eq'd and flat.

Then bottom right is a voltage meter.

Might start on the box soon.
