Default A new start

Hello, my old screen name is twizt3dfuc, some of you may remember me. Anywho, I had a 98 maxima that I beat the piss out of. Had mismatched bumpers, leaking sunroof, broke trunk latch, all the fancy stuff lol.

I decided it was time for a newer car with breaking the bank and I refuse to have another bill so I picked up a very well maintained 99 200sx.

The car stayed all stock with no panels removed up until last week. So now I want something clean that just sounds good.
The maxi had prv 8s and off brand super tweeters, great for keeping up with the sound stage but terrible for listening.
So I wanted to make a good sounding car, but not very expensive. I can already see I'll have to upgrade the components, so I chose to go with precision power sedonas, never used precision but I will say they sound great.
They are powered by a sound magus 4 channel, dont remember the model number though.
Head unit is a cz702.
So with the car gutted, I ran all of my wire and found some pretty cool 14ga to run through the car
Every install I've done I've always cut the wire short and haven't had room to make a pretty install. This will not be an issue this go around.

The car will have 2 15" american bass tnt series on a shark 2500 (still love my 99.99 eBay amp from back in the day.)
I'll have to decide how I want to setup the trunk but today my last piece for the moment

The precision power dsp88r
I know its a cheap unit, but I've never done anything with processing so I'm gonna give it a whirl. This will probably be a slow build as I dont have a truck to get wood, so I'll have to measure a ton to get cut sheets for the fine people of my local Lowes.
Thanks for reading, have a great day guys!

Well crap maybe a few installed pics would help. It hurt my heart and soul to take a hole saw to my door panels but I needed a hole for my tweeters


Then just a boring radio install, I did however go with a metra kit this time lol

I remember you, welcome back!

The 88r is a pretty good processor, especially for the money. Two pieces of advice about it: make sure the main power plug and the remote are both plugged in tight, and use a relay on the 12v remote turn on output (if you use it).

Clean install so far!

Dont know why I'll ever need 30ft of USB but by god I got it.



Put the master volume remote in the cubby hole below the radio. Its almost like they made it exactly for it. Lol



Sub's and bass are easy. What have I got myself into?!?

Thank you brother. I see a few names I recognize surfing through the topics. I never could recover my password for the old profile so had to start a new.

Pure beef to replace the sedonas 6.5's

They were fun but were dead sub 100hz. So I grabbed some mid woofers (whom on paper cover 40ish hz - 4000 ish.

Still have to find a way to sneak my peerless 2" full ranges into the mix. A processor is a crazy to make you decide you are missing out on music. This is a huge learning experience

Out with the old

In with the new.
Bass response difference is phenomenal. Excited to get the other side done so I can tune on it some. The poor sedona mids were awesome but its a night and day difference.
