New frontstage install

Postby black300zx » Tue May 30, 2006 5:06 pm

after about 7-8 months of piecing my new front stage together, it's finally done. Back in the fall I picked up 40ft of damplifier, along with 24ft of overkill for my doors while Ant was having the big discount. I also picked up a set of used ID cd1 pro HLCD's mounted on cd1e bodies. Finally, after having the above sit in my room for months, I just bought the peerless exclusive 8's from madisound.

The install starts tuesday, June 20th. My finals are the week before that, then I'm going down my g/f's senior week from saturday until monday night. She'll be 3 hrs away for the rest of the week, so the install should be fairly timely:)

For the time being, my 300/4 will run everything, but as soon as I get a second amp, I'll be bridging the 300/4 to the midbasses (150rms x 2 @ 3-8ohms), and get a medium sized 2 channel for the horns (50-75rmsx2).

Here's some pics so the thread won't be boring:cwm12:

bunch of damplifier, and the overkill:)

If i bring my gpa up .02 points, the number of internships I can apply for almost doubles, so I can't afford to slack off to work on my stereo. If you were reffering to the sr week part, it'll be nice to relax and kick back for a weekend after finals:)

Horns are going under the dash, like usual. Without any trimming, they were tolerable once installed. After a little more trimming of the body(mostly the mounting flange that's on the outer end) and maybe some plastic, they should tuck away nicely.

If the horns don't work out, I'll be throwing The DLS iridium 3" dome midrange and tweeter in kicks.

Don't see any undies in that picture:cwm12: Only a black nike jacket, a black pair of mesh shorts, and some pillows. I really need to start taking pictures with a white background or something:cwm21:
