    One of the greatest things that we love is the sound our RBV's make. However many just love to hear a good song playing at the right level. However many just love to hear a good song playing from five miles away. Anyways something is bound to float your boat.

    This months contest is all about sound systems and how they look in the vehicle. Since we can not hear it......You better make it look good. Hey this is only the internet here.

    Contest Name: "Best Audio Mod's"

    We will be adding pictures until 07/22/2013. Then we will begin voting.

    Please Note:

    Thanks,
    Burns

    Same receiver, changer and MTX sub, but with 3 amps and 2 12" Pioneer 600w VCCS subs in a ported box and 2 Sony XVM-H65 headrest screens
    All the amps and control boxes for the screens are on a rack hidden under the back seat and they're still able to fold flat

    Snapped a few pics in the work parking lot since STrunneelr nominated me. My audio setup has evolved a lot over the years. I'll spare the old and just post current parts

    Clarion CZ500 headunit with blue tooth and sat radio [​IMG]

    Have 2 JBL 100w 2 ways up front and 2 Hifonics Zues 3 ways in the back. [​IMG]

    The star of my setup: 3 RE Audio SRx12's. Currently wired to 2 ohms but when I get my new amp I'll rewire to one. These sit in a box I made with my grandpa that takes the place of ome of my back seats. (This was finished a couple weeks ago and I plan to bed line the box)
    [​IMG]

    and my speakers are being amplified by a hifonics HiFi 4×80w amp and the subs are being starved but they are running off of a 770w JBL pocket amp. In the works is a Hifonics Goliath 2000w amp but im in college and money is tight amyway heres the amps mounted in my seatback. both ran with 2 gauge wire.

    Sorry for the huge post

    Here we go...

    To start off here's my truck...

    [​IMG]

    Currently running 2 12" .7ohm DVC fully built DC Audio Lvl 4 in full birch box tuned at 36hz

    [​IMG]

    Amp is a Audioque (Soundcubed) AQ1200D. Truck came with stock sub and amp. Took those out of the passenger rear quarter and mounted the amp where that was. Then took the original cover that was in the rear quarter and made a fiberglass mold of it as a beauty panel. Painted the same silver as the truck and then lit with a single surface mount 5050 blue LED. Subs are wired down to .7ohm.

    [​IMG]

    Deck is a Pioneer DEH-9400UB.

    [​IMG]

    I am also in the works of a custom center console to hold my iPod

    [​IMG]

    Big three upgrade is currently done.

    In the doors I'm running two sets of Infinity Kappa 63.9i 3 way speakers replacing the stock door speakers. (My apologies for the stock photo.)

    [​IMG]

    Have 0 gauge American Bass wire running from battery to amp and also ground to amp.

    Future plans are to purchase a 160amp at idle 200amp at 2K rpm Singer HO Alt, replace the AQ1200D with a Cresendo BC3500 and wire down to .35 ohm, and also in the making is a triple pillar pod and a single pillar pod for the passenger side where I will be replacing the front speakers with a set of Cresendo CZ Series 6.5" Components where I'll be mounting the tweeters in the pillar pods and also running a volt meter to be able to watch for voltage drop when competing.

    Think I hit everything.

    Here's my Project Log although it hasn't been updated in a while.

    A LOT more to come, but since it is not done, I cannot post.
