    Sound Systems/Head Unit

    Interested in your audio setup in your car. I have 6.5" pyle speakers in the front. In the rear, I have pioneer 6.5" I forget which model. I also have 2 10" rockford p1 10s and a 760w pioneer amp with a pioneer head unit.

    Mine is simple yet a bit extreme at the same time. More sq the db.
    Soundstorm sd10.1b 10" flip out touchscreen. Big wow factor
    Alpine type r 6.5"components front and rear.
    Jl tw1 10" 2ohm sub in a very tight fitting box in the rear quarter panel where the rear washer tank used to be. .35ft³
    All powered by a mb quart 1100.5 amp. 1100 watt 5 channel.
    Then all the sound deadening and nessasary wiring its about a $2500 set up but sounds great and does hit hard

    Old pioneer head unit, 6.5 (6.75) speakers in all the stock holes...still need put my old rebuilt JL 10w3 ( with 1000w amp) back in the car but that will require me making a new box that I have not had time to get around too. The plan is to make the box into a finish panel that conceals the trunk and hides the battery since I have no rear seat any more. I should also help quite down some of the tire noise and 4-link suspension noise. It should also help add a little bit more weight over the rear axle for better traction and weight transfer (I think the noise end is a little too heavy for the rear to hook up properly on a launch...but I have not had it scales to confirm that...it could just be a matter an adjustment issue with the 4-link bars).

    Equipment List:
    Headunit: Eclipse CD3000
    Front speakers: Elemental Designs eDi 6500 component set (1" soft dome tweeter and 6 1/2" mid) Tweeters molded into the sail panels and mids in the factory door locations.
    Rear speakers: NONE (stock holes filled with stock speakers for now... just unplugged)
    Sub: Elemental Designs 13av.2
    Amps: Elemental Designs Nine.5 5 channel amp. (4x100 @ 4ohm and 1x600 @ 1ohm)
    Thats it...

    I need to find then fix the pictures in the thread my signature links to.

    But for the sake of honesty... I blew the amp and pulled the sub a couple years ago. (IIRC a wire for one of the mids came loose, grounded out, and blew that channel) Supporting a girlfriend and a kid made it difficult to replace or repair the amp for awhile. I've had spare cash and have been considering either getting a decent 1200+W mono block to really see what the sub can do or getting the 5 channel repaired. The girl and kid move out literally tomorrow so I'll likely bite the bullet sometime this summer. Wanting to replace the car ASAP too though.

    I was running the components active but put the passive crossovers in when I pulled the amp. And hooked the rears back up.

    here is the headunit. as you can see it is huge. kinda basic other then it has plenty of outputs and inputs. I enjoy using it.



    folded in. it does cheat. the screen is removable and the screen back fold in.


    the third sub box i built for this sub. it took me a while to get the right airspace and shape. it is mounted to the space frame but it is spaced 1/2" all around away from the space frame and floor. I threw on some carbon fiber viynal for now. not sure if im going to mold it all in or just build a beauty panel for it.

    Like that box. Figuring I will likely do a largely fiberglass rendition of it if I find a wagon.

    Pioneer 4100NEX for both the wagon and girlfriends Vue. She has aftermarket speakers, I found the 8 speaker system in the wagon was good enough with the high pass filter activated on the head unit. The pre amp helps too.

    Oh and a 12 inch jbl sub and an alpine amp.

    Here's my head unit. Got it from Walmart, I believe, for about $100. Bluetooth, SD Card, Aux, USB, CD, you name it. I love it.

    I also have two-way Sound Ordnance speakers all the way around, they sound fantastic. They were $50 a pair from Crutchfield, I think.

    And lastly I have a 10" or 12" Kenwood sub with a Kicker Amp in the trunk, that my father and I installed after boot camp.

    I would have a lot more specs and pictures, but it's been months since I've even seen my Saturn. It sounds amazing though.

    I will throw this in as well.



    Cheap sound deadening. Less the $20 for 33² ft. It is only 5mils thick but 3 rolls is enough to cover the entire inside of a wagon and then some. I did double it up on the front doors and front floorboards. Then tripled it behind my sub box.

    Works enough that driving down the interstate I used to have the volume up between 19-22. Now it is more in the 15-17 range. Using a free sound level app long before I did any deadening the levels were high 70 to low 80. That was just road noise. No music. Now high 60 to low 70. Wind noise is my biggest issue now. Old seals.

    My mb quart amp BTW.

    On a side note my bass sounds deeper now with all the deadening installed. I also installed 1/8" thick foam tape along all the interior panels. So there is hardly any rattles inside the car. Even on the outside there are a few places I need to address yet but they are not real bad.

    Shit I forgot to post that.


    I got this from Menard's. I'm sure any home improvement place has something similar. Menard's also had narrow strips for tight areas like the rear hatch.

    Use short sections if you install by yourself. If it sticks to itself its near impossible to get it unstuck. Which is a good thing. I also havnt noticed any odor from it either.

    It probably is. Pretty much all that type of flashing is. That's why dynamat costs what it does.
