    Default Back at it

    Its been forever but Im about to dive back in. Currently driving a Chevy Silverado. The radio isnt to bad for stock, but Im missing the functionality I want- Android Auto. Im also missing a rear view camera. I also find that the stock radio just isnt loud enough.

    Im just starting to piece it together. My first purchase were cheaper components. I opted for Focals.

    Yup I even bought them from Crutchfield of all places. The tweeter install is going to be what takes time. Im planning on modeling a mount to fit stock location and 3D print it.

    For the head unit Im going with Alpine ILX-W650. It has the creature features Im looking for plus EQ and time alignment.

    Im still trying to decide on an amp and sub. Im obviously not doing comps or crazy loud anymore. Just looking for decent. Looking for a nice small amp.

    Since I bought the Focals from Crutchfield they threw in goodies like the Scoshe plastic speaker adapters. What I wasnt aware of is that the stock speaker in my truck has the adapter housing built right in. Its inseperable. I also got the speaker plug adapters which is useful, for now.
    I am in the process of finalizing the tweeter pods. The truck had tweeters in the A Pillars on convient little daimond shape pull outs. So I opened them up, set my tweeters in hot glue and drove it two days to make sure I liked the positioning. I then epoxied, removed hot glue and epoxied rest of the way. Filled bondo 2 times, multiple coats of high fill primer. Then I put a glaze coat on, which has screwed up the primer. lol. The things you forget and remember afterwards!
    I would post pictures, but evidently Photobucket has changed a LOT since I last used it and my space here is so limited I cant upload anything further.

    Im going to be ordering the Soundstream ST4-1000D amp soon. This will power the comps great. I need to find a set of 6 1/2's to toss in the rear doors.

    Next up will be the Alpine ILX-W650.
    Oh I also did heated seats this weekend. That was a good time, not really. I spent two days leasiurely working on it. Happy with the end results.
