    Default The newest addition to my sound system...

    Well, after a bunch of screws, caulking, outdoor dock carpet and sweat, here is my latest addition:





    It's a home built box made by me and a couple of friends, housing two Sony Xplode 12" 1200 watt subs powered by a lightning audio 960 watt 4 channel amp bridged to 2 channels. I have it pretty toned down right now, but I can make some serious sound if the need arises! It can really freakin bump if I want it to haha
    Current truck: 1996 Ford 250, 7.3 Powerstroke diesel. Dana 60 SAS, stage 1 160cc injectors, T500 High Pressure Oil Pump, TS 6-position chip, full 4" exhaust, intake, 285 Falken Rocky Mountain AT's, boost/EGT/trans temp pillar gauges, etc...

    nice setup... you build the box yourself?

    I prefer the wedge box setup personally, but if I have time... fibreglass

    looks good.

    BTW.. I love the 331 Marrettes

    1993 K1500 Suburban 350TBI, 378,486KMS on frame, 49,000KMS on Drivetrain. Lots of mods, built for haulin trailers and haulin @$$ :)

    2000 K2500 Yukon XL 6.0L Vortec 252000KMS custom CAI, and exhaust...but not done yet.

    Well I built the box with 2 of my buddies, so not technically by myself but yeah lol. And I would have tried a wedge box, but I've never built a box before and I only had one piece of the particle board I used so i couldn't afford to screw it up at all. And yeah I had to extend the sub wires a bit (got the subs from a friend of mine) and the 331's were the biggest wire nut we had, and they happen to fit perfectly.

    And thanks kgibson! All in all from start to finish it probably took about 4 maybe 4 1/2 hours. It sounds good though!

    In my 95, I had a 12' Kicker CVR on the seat, running orr a Boss 850, and a two MA Audio 10's running off a Nitro 1000. I ain't gonna lie, that truck slammed pretty good, but nothing like my friend's Pontiac Gran Prix GTP. He has two L7's in it and you can feel it in your chest when he turns it up.
