Client brought in his 'Man Van' for some embarrassment-inducing audio upgrades!
He basically wanted to embarass his kids when he picks them up from school...also...eargasms for himself.
Here is what I installed:
Sound Deadening throughout
Pioneer AVH-200EX w/ bypass module
Digital Designs D4.90 4ch Amplifier
Digital Designs DM1000a Mono Amplifier
Digital Designs 6.5" DC6.5 Component Speakers
Digital Designs 6.5" DX6.5 Coaxial Speakers
Digital Designs DD712 Redline Series Subwoofer
Digital Designs 'z' wire rca cables
I'd previously sound deadened the entire floor of this van about 2 years ago...so this only made sense to finish the rest of the car....front doors, rear sliding door, rear quarters and rear lift gate. I've never done sliding door before...WHAT a PITA....but it definitly made a noiticeable difference.....which is good.
The dual amp setup fit nicely under the front passenger seat with access to the settings somewhat easily after you remove the side seat cover.
Installed the bass knob in the hidden pocket in the dash....that's now the 'boom knob'.
The pioneer unit is a basic headunit...just wanted better controls over the audio and BT/Aux/USB....so that was achieved.
The new speakers added the much needed highs to compete with the sub-stage.
The sub-stage.....that's where the magic happens.
I used a standard ported enclosure because it needed to be removable, within budget and not take up a chunk of room.
For a small ported box...this badboy hits!
It's a nice clean pounding bass and paired with all the sound-deadening....it's a nice tight bass.....but you can still tell it's no basic setup.....this will be heard from a block away....just enough time for the kids to start covering up their faces as pops rolls in with an ear-to-ear grin!
