It was at this moment that a budget was set and I made a decision......to give up on a dream I'd had for a long time......to stuff an 800w shallow mount woofer behind the seat of Earl Grey!
My 'personal' demo audio system has evolved over the years.....meaning, I'd purchased a full system with new products back in 2011 with all good intentions....then years passed without time to redo the interior of my truck the proper way.....so things sat. As time when on, New and Innovated products were released and made my BRAND NEW In Box products seem lame!
So I've sold and purchased a few different systems over the years....that eventually just sit and collect dust in my parts room.
Well....this was the most recent rendition of my demo system.....a Digital Designs SL710 Shallow Mount 10" 800w subwoofer with a Digital Designs D5.1000 5 Channel Amplifier.
When the owner told me of his plans.....to upgrade the audio system with a 5 channel amp and subwoofer first..then add speakers next, I thought it was time to upgrade my future system. So I gave in.....and he's glad I did.
I crammed that beast under the rear seat with plenty of breathing room It's going to put out over 100 watts RMS to his future door speakers...and around 800 watts RMS to that beast of a 10" shallow mount stuffed behind his seat in the nice SPL Ported truck box. It's a bit bigger than most shallow mount boxes, but I wanted that sub to have ALL the airspace it could handle.....1.35 Cu. Ft. seemed plenty :-D
Also on the docket.....we'll be installing a new Goose Neck Flip Ball in the bed (since a local dealership couldn't figure it out) and he didn't want to struggle looking at where he was backing up to.
We I fabricated a custom bracket to allow me to install a small camera up in the 3rd brake light area and wired it up to a brand new rear view mirror with built in 3.5" screen. It'll trigger automagically when placed in reverse so now he can see the bed AND behind him with dual backup cameras!
This truck isn't don't being modified....look at for more from us!
