Yeah, I was sweating bullets when the adjuster came out but he was a cool old guy and asked me if I personally wanted it totaled, I told him no and he told me I should make a list of mods I have done, that they add a percent to the value of the car(I had already made one so I gave it to him) and after an hour of deliberation between him and someone on the phone along with him plugging info into his laptop he said they were willing to throw 3800 toward getting it fixed so I gave him my buddy's number and Thursday it was towed to his shop. Now I am waiting on him to work his magic and I will have Burt my Bittersweet Bastard back and he will have new paint all around, now I just need to put new tires on another pair of his shoes so he can strut around in style, then get more bump for the trunk.

Thanks guys, it will still have my green/orange bbs's on it for now but hopefully soon I can get one of my sets of 16's on it until I can put some money into refinishing some of my other rimzes.

Re: Slobalt7's Log, coming out slow and painfully.
 
Paint is done aside from front lip, next move, get tires for some of my other sets of rims so I can loose the orange and green.

Thanks guys, small update, got a pair of T2 Reactor Audio tweets, hopefully they will be in by the end of the week. Also got a PPi 600.2 Phantom for mids, going to get another PPI 600.2 and 4 Crescendo PDX 6.5's and see how I like the mids and highs with that setup... Then continue on my sub stage.

Re: Slobalt7's Log, coming out slow and painfully.
 
So, a little bit of an update. I have decided to take an idea from blackg5's box but instead of doing a single 18 I am going to try 3 separate Quarter wave enclosures mounted together with subs and ports up for my MA-8's, since I now have three along, with the trunk sealed off and the box positioned cross wise in the back seat area. I am going to run two PPI Phantom 600.2's, one for mids and one for highs(I have one along with one pair of the Reactor Audio R2 tweeters) and the mids one will be running two pair of Crescendo PWX 6.5's(two per door). I still haven't decided what amp to run my sub stage off of but all of it will be on a PPI eq with a RF 360 BLD pushing the sub stage around.

Cliffs on projected setup:

What I have already will be posted in red and bold.

60 AH AGM
(3)Skar MA-8

(2 pair)(1 pair)Reactor Audio R2
(2 pair) Crescendo PWX 6.5
(2)(1) PPI Phantom 600.2
(1) 1500wrms mono block
(1) RF 360 BLD
(1)PPI E.DZ

Still havent decided on the mono I wanna go with but as long as it is around 1300 rms at 1.33 then we are good.

New update... Happened to be talking to a guy on CACO facebook and he came by and dropped off something for me... When he came by he had a friend with him and after talking to them for a few minutes I realized I had actually met them a few years back at a show in 2010. Long story short, some old friends sold me a MINT SAX100.4... So can anyone guess what that means for my setup?

Re: Slobalt7's Log, coming out slow and painfully.
 
You're ditching the PPI in favour of an amp worth more than your car? :lol: :p

Slobalt7 06-23-2013 02:10 PM

Re: Slobalt7's Log, coming out slow and painfully.
 
Haha, nice. Not entirely, I was actually thinking of keeping the PPI for the highs, running the SAX for mids, and still haven't found anything that stands out for the substage yet but for right now I am focused on mids and highs... I have to rebuild my enclosure anyways and will be sealing off the trunk and all that good stuff so I am just not going to have super bass for a while.

Just got the PPI E.DZ in and mounted in the single din Metra mount, need to make a block off for the top since it is 1/2 din size which I am going to make tomorrow out of the trim piece from a TempVent(the company I work for installs them) which is pretty firm plastic. I will be making it a switch panel and hopefully have room to mount my volt meter too(think it is too big but not sure)
