Nice install man! Really clean, on the amp rack did you think about maybe putting a piece of plexi under the amps for the led's to light up?

Got to do some more work on this build:

 

In this post I will teach you how to reverse mount speakers and also how to use threaded inserts:

 

I found the threaded inserts at my local hardware store, I have also seen them at Home Depot, Lowes, and Menards. I really like them as you don't have to be concerned with stripping out the wood if you have to remove the screws to remove the speaker and put it back in. They are very easy to use as I will outline in the video at the bottom of the post:

Here is a picture of what they look like once mounted fully, I chose to use a washer as well to have more of a surface for the screw to hold against.

With the reverse mounting I found this configuration to be very appealing to the eye. I really like how you cant see any of the mounting holes, just the outer most part of the surround.

In the video below I outline how to install the threaded inserts, as well as how to reverse mount a speaker. Enjoy!

I am very excited to use their new product the KNF-60, we were one of the first to get a production unit and I was really impressed with using it in a different build so I decided to get one for this one as well:

All of the wiring in this build will be protected by Techflex which I recieved from our show sponsor WireCare.com . They really have some great products and the "snake" style techflex will look awesome with the tan and black truck.

Its crazy how many colors of this stuff there is!

Now the EXCITING stuff!

 

I made these outer insert templates with a series of router techniques and skills, I discuss them in the video.

The idea is they will insert into the pod and can be wrapped with a different material or painted to accent the install. Here you can see I will mount the woofer from the rear, and the tweeter is flush mounted:

Finally I added some low temp plastic around the base template so that the top insert could lay flush. I show how I do this in the video as well.

And here is the video describing the process!

 

 

 

Well thats all for now, let me know what you think! Add this thread to your book marks and check back often!

We brought back an oldy but goody.  This forum was around 10+ years ago and was and will remain one of the great online car audio forums.

 

So bring your friends, hang out, post up your builds, ask questions, sell stuff.

Hi, my name is Nick and I'm building this system for overall SQ, daily driving.
 
I'm learning as I go along, but appreciate all the tips, hints, and help I can get.
This log will be updated as I get more pictures and more of the equipment installed.
Stay loud.
 
Goals:
  1. Upgrade the front stage to provide overall excellent SQL even at higher volumes. I want people to have an immersive experience and to experience a quality of sound they have most likely never heard before. 
     
  2. Big 3 Upgrade
     
  3. Sound Deadening on front doors.
     
  4. Build Amp rack that hides all wires and fits in trunk. Must look flush and clean.
     
  5. Relocate front stage amp and crossovers to amp rack in trunk. Rerun wire as needed.
     
  6. Redo Big 3 with cleaner runs.
     
  7. Build Sub box for (1) XCON 12 D1.
     
  8. Sound deaden trunk.
 
More to come...


Equipment:
Arc Audio FD2100
Image Dynamics CXS62v2
KnuKonceptz Wire and Accessories
Pioneer DEH-80PRS
SSA XCON 12 D1
MurderMat BL Series

Soon:
Crescendo 3500 or Sundown 3500
Sound Deadening in Trunk

#4704 Brand Spanking new Server and Host

Posted by Mark LaFountain on 10 March 2016 - 07:23 PM

After down time almost weekly as of late from our existing host who we've been with for years and years, in fact, I can't remember how long it's been so long, we have finally given up on them and changed to a new host. Our new dedicated box has 4 times the RAM, and twice the processor, also an SSD hard drive, so site load time and performance should be very notifiable.

The move is all done, and SSA is now on the new dedicated server. The other forums are also, but I have to work out some php handler issues before they will be working properly. In the mean time, please enjoy our new forum, on a brand new dedicated server with our new host.

I hope you are all as excited as Aaron and I are. It's been a long time in the making.
