Default Nori's off roader 4runner: iPad, sundown, digital designs, image dynamics

Should've done this sooner, but as of right now I'm content with where I'm at before moving on to the next upgrade (deadening).

Truck is named Nori, per my wife's tradition of naming all our vehicles. I take him through some pretty rough Arizona terrain. Suspension is by Toytec (Ultimate lift kit; 3 inches)

This current build is an upgrade over my last small system that I had since this past spring. Old system included a Skar 1500.1 amp, with 2 8 inch Skar VVX subs running at 2 ohm. I didn't change the components, which are Image Dynamics CTX65CS 6.5s, powered by Sundown 100.4 amp. The upgrade consists of the amp: Digital Designs M3, and the subs, 2 Sundown SA15s running at 1 ohm. As far as the head unit, I don't have one, I use an iPad or my iPhone as the source. Here how the signal is ran: idevice to HRT iStreamer DAC. This is a relatively high quality digital to analog converter, which is better than any of the DAC chips in almost all mobile audio headunits. Amazon.com: HRT iStreamer Outboard DAC for iDevices: MP3 Players & Accessories This signal is then sent to a Clarion 7 volt line driver and an equalizer. The result is a very good signal and a pretty damn good audio quality output (limited by the quality of the mp3 file, of course. Lossless files are best, like FLAC)


Subs: Sundown SA15s d4ohm
Amps: Digital Designs M3, Sundown 100.4
Headunit: iPod, iPhone
Line Driver, EQ: Clarion EQS746
Digital to Analog Converter: iStreamer HRT
Wire: Shok 0 gauge Elite, Knu 0 gauge OFC
Electrical: Kinetic 1800, Shok Big 3

CREDITS
These are the folks who have helped me out directly or indirectly during the current build:

Box design: Hank (2000LaDe), dbeez (original design didn't work out)
Box build: Toby (Goindef154)
Big 3: Toby (Goindef154)
4runner questions: bumpin buick

and many of you posters; from you I learned in various threads and searches.

The setup is not clean and that is due to two reasons. This build seems to go through constant dynamic changes, so I don't want to finish it up with a final look yet. The second reason is that work takes me through various shady neighborhoods, and I gotta park the truck overnight. With it being my daily driver I want to attract as little attention as I could to my vehicle. Almost looks like my radio is stolen.

Previous compact build: amps under the seats. Sundown under my driver seat and the Skar under the passenger. I had the rear seats folded down during this time so I could use the entire length of the truck's bed.




Rings for the Image Dynamics CTX65CS components. These are pretty deep for future reference.


Kinetic 1800 and the big 3 using Shok 0 gauge:


Old setup:


This is how he stands now, wifey's 4runner in the garage:




iPad setup. Please excuse wifey's Sketchers gym shoes.



Sun bathing and painting the left sub...


Thanks Hank and Toby for a great sounding box! Tuned to 34 hertz.


Sundown 100.4. I know its messy, but its hidden with the seats folded up, which is my exact intent with this setup.


The box is under the window line but uses up every inch in the cargo area:


DD M3:



It is summer time and its time for bumping. Once the weather gets down to reasonable temperatures again I will be using Nori for his original purpose: to explore this amazing and beautiful state of Arizona. I will be changing the build once again to something small, maybe go with one IDQ for the season change in the later fall-winter (I will be needing the space for camping and necessary supplies for myself and the dog should I break down. Lots of water, food, emergency gear). This is what I've taken Nori through (pretty reckless in retrospect, considering some of my runs I'm flying solo or with just my dog). But I risk it for the sake of exploration of Arizona's beauty:

Oak Creek Homestead (near Sedona):


Poser shot But as you can see, I don't treat my truck like a mall crawler ha. Arizona's pinstriping is killing me, though.


Box Canyon (near Florence Junction):
This was SIGNIFICANTLY more difficult than it looks. Even with a 3 inch suspension lift, and larger tires I still kissed a rock with Nori's belly along the best line. A storm is threatening as well. FUN!

Thanks! I occasionally browse ih8mud but don't post there. I was hunting for a 1st gen at the beginning of the year but then gave up. Only the 1st gens had solid axles. I picked up a low sitting toy recently but haven't played with it much. Audio incoming for that car as well... So many projects!

The mount for the ipad is ram brand. What do you all think of it? It's really sturdy and malleable; you can shape the rod to whatever angle you require. I know it can look much, much better in a different build goal hehe.

Also... I mentioned I got a toy as well, and compared to the 4runner it sits much lower haha. In fact, I purchased it the very next day after getting the sundown subs box. The purchase was almost like a self gift to myself for finally dropping something big (15s) after months of consideration, research, and procrastination. This surely was an upgrade over the old 8 inchers, however. Timing of the Rex purchase was perfect, I was looking for one for months, here in the Valley. I wanted as little molestation of the vehicle as possible, and this one fit the bill: 90 HF 5-speed without a sunroof. And the most surprising feature is that it's stock, I was getting ready to give up on the idea of finding a stock one. Here it is baking in the 110s degree heat after the tint install:ImageUploadedByTapatalk1346615238.840858.jpg

Taking suggestions as to what I should try out
