Default 150+DB Trunk 2014 Chevy Cruze - The Road To Slamology 2015

Hey guys just figured id finally start one of these things.

My car is a 2014 Chevy Cruze bought it brand new and within 2 weeks had my first audio setup in it. Started with a single SA12 on a cheap power acoustik amp sounded good but wasnt quite loud enough. I finally ripped my 4g out for some 0g wiring then added a second sa12 (both dual 2) and wired them at .5 on a Audio Pipe 1800. Sounded good but i had a shitty box. I added 2 Kinetik HC600 batteries at the time and it helped with my voltage a little. still stayed in the 13's. Finally after 2 pre fab boxes and one i had a guy build me (still was complete shit now that i think about it) it was time for my first competition. I managed to bust out a 140.1 at my first competition in trunk class. ended up getting third out of 5. Not crazy good but i was hooked! And thats when i spiraled down hill!

After that i decided to rebuild my entire system. sold my SA12's and amp. Ordered an unbranded Zenon 4200.1, Built a Custom 15" sub and added a huge 105lb powerware battery. Built a new birch box by myself this time. 45's in all the corners, 6" aero tuned to 34hz. It ended up around 4.25 cubes.

Ok so time for the next competition. This time i decided to go to a local audio shop and do some testing before hand. I was surprised! First burp i landed a 143.4! After playing with seat position etc i managed to get it up to a 144.5! so i figured i was ready to go to my next comp! So i show up, hop on the meter right away and land a 145.7 with no changes from the night before other than a few hours on the battery charger! i was shocked! I ended up getting third place in that one as well!


Now we end up at where i am today....

My 4200.1 burnt up cause my battery fell on it and pinched a wire and shorted out. Needs sent to DBR for repair.

So i bought a SAZ-3000D from DBR to hold me over for now. I built a 3.5 cube box, Single 6" aero tuned to 32hz. Fiberglass Resined the inside and out of my box and used a 2" dowel rod for bracing.



So i plan on running Ampere Audio AA3.012's in my new box.

For electrical upgrades, i ordered dual inputs for my amp. I ordered a NSB AGM34 battery as well as 2 banks of Maxwell 3000 Farad 2.7v super caps to run as well.

All in all im shooting for a 147+ Db score.

Ill update this more as i go along. Ive still got alot of stuff to do before i can install it all.


Thanks for Checking out my build thread!

Nothing currently, saving up for a rebuild. Hopefully I'll be done by slamology lol. I did recently just have a 15" sp4 on a ct2500.1 but sold it all.

Yeah I'm shooting for slam too. But Gould be able to do that no problem. Hoping the subs are good and broke in before then! Might even double the power for slam who knows!

Worked on the car a little more today. Started my battery mount. This was pre supports that held the two boards together.



Then built the false floor.


Cut the factory trunk mat to fit


Box Test Fit.


Box going to get covered tomorrow. Black Vinyl with Red stitching. Will have pictures of it up soon!

Oh and a comparison of my old sub on the left and new subs on the right. Hard to believe it should be louder!
