Default Horns Bazookas & SI DS4 18 SQ FTW!

Greetings and salutations beings of the internet. I come bearing random thoughts ramblings and a build log. This will be version 3 of my 2004 suburban. The setup:

Sony XAV-701HD
Stevens Audio Full Size Horns
Beyma 8BR40 8" Mids
Arc PS8
Bazooka MGA series Amps
Stereo Integrity DS4 18 sealed 6cuft



This is also the simplest iteration. I employed the KISADUWDATTDT method: Keep It Simple And Don't Upgrade When Done And Tune The Damn Thing. Just a little FYI the horn install happened a few years ago. This a compilation of a build that spanned a few years. :P

Up first are the horns. You've seen one you've seen them all but just in case here is a pic.



I designed in CAD and had CNC plasma cut some brackets.



I did a little prepping of the horn bodies before installing.



Here is the passenger side mocked up in place.



The final install.



For those who can get enough pics here is a link to more:

Stay tuned for moar updates.

I made some kick pods that can actually be kicked, but I won't appreciate it if you do it intentionally during a demo. :P

This is the vision with the little Beyma 8BR40 in place.



Layed up some glass.



Made some kick ass rings with some simple steel mesh grills. I'm using some threaded wood inserts and 8-32 button head cap screws to hold everything down.



After some blood, sweat, and many many many tears I got some pods made.



After a fresh coat of rubber undercoating I mounted the pods to the kick panels.



The final install

Got me a little something extra for the PS8.



Drew me up a little housing to mount in the dash.



Laser cut FTW!



Formed and welded.



Cut some mounting ears and welded some flanged nuts using works tig.



Used my crappy flux core mig at home to eff everything up.



The final install

Did your Suburban have that stupid ebrake release right in the middle of the underside of your driverside dash? I know it comes off with a couple of screws, but I thought it left a little indention and I don't see one at all on yours. I am interested in those brackets you made for your bodies as well. Any chance you saved that file and would be willing to reprint pending on if they'd fit my escalade 05.

It did have the release next to the OBD diagnostic port under the driver side dash. I took it all out the parking brake and the release and relocated the ODB diagnostic port to the fuse panel area on the driver side dash. I do have the file available if you need a .dxf to have someone cut for you. If you need a pair cut we can work something out.

Last time I took 2 peices of wood and put a piece of lexan between them in a vice and used a heatgun back and forth and while applying a bit of pressure and then used a dremel to notch it out. It worked, but metal looks a bit better. I have a pair of full size old school ID ultras that I'd like to use that are burning a hole in my head along with this helix pro. I will ask a friend first before getting the file from you btw. I don't want to assume he will do it, but I think he will. Thank you!
