Excelent install. I like your speaker panels in your doors (just like mine). Also like all the LEDs is a nice, and unique touch. Installing the amps on the pasengers side floor was creative. My only complants are the front speakers. I would of gotten some comps...and not pioneers.

Trust me. The revs are good speakers. I chose them over directed studio comps, pg comps and kenwood excelons.
People think pioneer speakers = krap, but these things are comparable to other "competition worthy" speakers.

Never turn it up in VA. Some bonehead politician is tired of hearing stereos in car, WHILE he's watching TV. Apparently they drive by his house. Anyways, he's proposing a bill to OUTLAW stereo systems in car that can be HEARD from 50 ft away. :angry:

When are these idiots gonna stop telling us what to do and when to do it? :angry:

Nice work, i'm working on something myself and that gives me a few ideas. The LED's are a cool touch...i have a couple orange ones i will put to good use. Is the floor section all 1 piece so you don't have to worry about moisture?

hypnos: Yes, a buddy of mine has the studios in his car, so i hooked them up to my amp. They just didn't give me the overall sound I was looking for. Much better imaging that's for shure. If I was going with a bit more power and a midbass system, I definately would have gone that way. But the revs all around using the decks auto eq and timing alignment work best for me.

As for the moisture getting in the amps... The amps are mounted on 1/2 inch plywood which sits on the floor pannel (sound dedening and carpet removed) So if water builds up in there, it wouldn't touch the amps till it reached about 1.5 liters my guess. I also keep it covered in the winter with a deep rubber floor mat and try to clean it as much as i can. It isn't exactly one piece. I'll try to remember to take some pictures of the thing apart next time i open it up. (Want to do some minor changes)

One nice thing about the setup, Will not go anywhere. In order to take out the amps, i gotta take out the seat!


... I think in the summer the girlfriend will have to start taking off her shoes before getting in. Getting some fine rocks scratching the plexi.

Won't crap get in where those fans are? near the passenger sear (they look like computer style L.E.D Fans, is that what they are?) really nice setup though.

I have filters under the fans. Yes they are computer fans. The beauty is that all computer mod stuff will work in the car. Both 12V DC applications.
