Default I"m comin out of retirement for Car Audio

there was this guy from cleveland who came to a car show here in a honda truck. he 3 soundstream components set in each door (4). he had a thousand watt soundstream amp on each door. he had 2 15's with a thousand watt amp on each one.

everybody and their mother came to my house and told me that this guy got me on my mids and highs. I had retired from the music game years ago, but they Couldn't let it go. I guess that they thought highly of my vehicles.

I'm coming out of retirement now (for a little while anyway). I'm doing this to prove a point. I'm to lose a lot of my front stereo image, but so what. I'm going to make another concert of wheels. I post the picture later on today of my truck. I should have the finishing touches done by tomorrow. this was a 3 1/2 week project.

i love the highs box. Very well designed inside. I would love to hear it.

How do you have it networked? Internal crossover or separate terminals per crossover section? It looks like you have them individually wired since there isn't a x-over in the schematic.

I order two 18db 5,000hz crossover from parts express for the tweeters that will be here tomorrow. I needed super high powered passive crossver. I usually use active crossover but the 4 channel amp (I usually run 8 channels on my mid and highs) limits that. I also ordered to 100 watt stereo L pads. now I have the tweeter crossover at 6400hz@ 6db per octave and the mids running 400 hz to 5,000hz. the 8's handle everything below that. my son's friend drew that diagram as I didn't know how, so I left the crossover out

Parts Express:Eminence PXB:5K0 High Pass Crossover Board 5,000 Hz

I don't know what part of cleveland. Funny thing, I called one on my 2 friend who had pictures of it. DJ wise pointed out that's it is on the computer that is at my house. he wanted me to fix a couple of things on it.

here are the pictures.

Good lord! That is killer. I think my 2 12" Kicker Comp CVR's with a 1000W Baja Amp hits hard, but I can't imagine what your truck is like.

I hope you listen to rap when you ride in that thing.

* On a side note, I guess we have some Northern-Ohioan's on TF. I'm about 45-50 Min. from Cleveland. Cedar Point? I'm about 15 min. from that.
