Default 04 tahoe slow sq'ish build

Well after 9 years I'm finally getting rid of my cavalier. My wife let me get my first big boy vehicle. A 2004 Tahoe Z71. It was a repo, the price was right, so we went for it. It does have 144,000 miles on it but it still feels like new. It was pretty dirty on the inside and does have a few minor issues but they are all common and cheap repairs. They will a be addressed throughout the build.

Anywho, here is what I plan to do audiowise since this is an audio forum afterall

Headunit. Kenwood ddx470 w/reverse cam for wifey
Processor. Undecided
Tweeters. Id xs28 but thinking of swapping to some scanspeak or getting jbl ms62 comps passive for sake of simplicity
Mids. 6 1/2 silver flute 4 ohm
Sub undecided but considering either an 8" jbl gto or sundown sd2 either of which will be going on console where factory sub goes
Amps 2x id q700.2 and a 1200.1 all modded.

Anywho here is the car the day I bought it




Now that windows are tinted


And what I did today

My amps going in. I'm hoping to get them to fit in the rear cargo area where the factory sub is located in some vehicles. Going to put 1200 on top though so it can sit over wheel well

So I already got a different headunit. I saw that best buy had a ddx770 on closeout so I bought that. Has aslightly larger screen than the ddx470 but that's it. This is the 3rd deck I have purchased and I'm yet to install one in car

Alrighty new plans for setup.

Kenwood ddx770
Front stage. Morel Maximo comps passive until i can afford a processor as well as a better front stage
Sub. Alpine type s 10" in a jl stealth box in console
Front stage amps. ID q700.2 bridged per side. 650 watts per side for a little headroom
Sub amp. ID q1200.1 running @1 ohm and again extreme headroom

I suppose this kind of headroom isn't really necessary so may just use both 700.2 amps. One on front providing 175 per side and 650 to sub


I'm just glad I figured out a way to get amps to fit

I also have some left over deadener from my old car so going to start on the doors with it until I can afford some more.

So we got a few things done on it today

got the remote start/accessories put on it today


and applied the second skin thermal block

before



after which is super hard to see but I applied it from about a foot from the headers all the way to the rear of the exhaust. Im not sure how much sound it'll block but im sure it'll absorb some heat. I didn't notice heat getting through before however itll never be a problem

Deadened the hood. No it didn't need it but I had material so why not



Also did a hood liner to absorb heat/sound


I put 3/4 of a gallon of spectrum sludge in wheel wells. Once it cures I will apply a layer of luxury liner pro


Also started the big 3 today. The distro accepts dual 1/0 inputs and dual 1/0 out.
