haven't done it yet. i messed with the EQ's on Sunday, but i was being too lazy to hide the wires and mount it. probably gonna rig up something with a backing plate under the foam, then just stick bolts up through it to put lock nylon lock nuts on. it's not like it needs a shit ton of clamping force, just needs to not slide around.

Use velcro works perfect and don't have to put holes in anything

i don't know how well velcro adhesive backing will stick to the foam over time... but i might pick up some industrial strength velcro from menards then and try that. i bought that stuff for clip boards back at the tire shop and it is pretty damn strong on the adhesive and the velcro itself.

added one more small 2 channel amp for the dash speakers because i wanted to adjust their gain by themselves. (Shawn i know what your gonna say, but i got last kicker amp for 50 bucks refurbished. so i didn't feel like spending extra to just swap my 4 channel for a 5 channel instead).

i put that amp above the truck floor by the sub amp. that other interior amp is still below the trunk floor. but i think i want to move it up above the trunk floor by the other two. more air is always better for them. i just didn't feel like doing it today.

sounds great, only one problem. when the car is off and the headunit is off the canbus signal wakes up the amp sometimes and i get some clicking through the speakers.

the stock speakers did it too, but it was so quiet you could barley hear it. now that they are all amped it is really noticeable.

its something all the kicker package SRT's do. stock you can hear it from the sub. people call it the heartbeat. the audio equipment in the car stock powers on when you open the trunk, unlock or lock the car, ect... even if the headunit is off. i dunno why they set it up that way.

i'm going to have to get a remote wire trigger like a Pac TR4 instead of using hi level inputs for amp turn on or something.

the PAC TR4 remote trigger came in yesterday. threw it in today, switched the amps to low level input mode and all is well. amps turn off a second or two after the car and no more CANBUS noises.

i only wired the cabin amps into the remote trigger. so the sub amp is still on high level inputs, but i didn't want to wire too many amps to the trigger. the sub "heartbeat" when the car is off doesn't bother me. it's been there since stock.

the PAC TR4 was super easy to wire and only like 15 bucks. best part is you could just tap the amp for the wiring. yellow tapped on the 12+ wire port on the amp, black tapped the ground wire port, Blue went to remote port on the amp, Green piggy backed to Left front positive speaker wire for the turn on signal.

officially done modding audio stuff for now. gotta save for heads, a tune, and a couple golf clubs i want. lol.

passed emissions today. this was my second attempt this month. i had to buy the Big Daddies Garage angled o2 CEL fixes to pass. i highly recommend them if you have to pass Illinois emissions with highflow or catless mids and are popping code P0420 or P0430.

forgot to post this last week.

2 weeks ago i found a crack in the face of my subwoofer. i guess something hit the face of it while i was cornering too fast or something. i didn't have a protective grill on it, but i didn't have a problem for like 5 years until now so it had a good run i guess.

long story short i probably could have saved this one with some epoxy, but i just bought a new one anyways for two reasons. 1. the sub i had was dual 2 ohm voice coils which really can't be wired to be the ideal load for the amp i have running it since you can only wire it to be 1 ohm or 4 ohm total. 2. looking at epoxy on it would drive me nuts and look ghetto.

so i bought the 4 ohm dual voice coil version i should have had in the first place and wired it to be 2 ohm to be the proper setup for the amp. i also added a protective grill so i don't chance cracking it again. it does sound much more tight and clear being the correct ohm load. so it is an upgrade in sound even though it is the same brand and size sub. at least that made me feel less bummed about cracking the old one.

i might try to fix the old one and put it in the truck though.


old sub all crack a lacka-ed....




new sub with protective grill...

Was that the sub I sold you?
Or did I only sell you the amp?
