Default Looking for 2000lade's van at slamology?

Don't bother.

To let the cat out of the bag, I was supposed to run the van this weekend. Well, I get down to lafayette today and find that the van is far from completed.

It got a new windshield this morning and I arrived at around 1 and started to get stuff done. All the wiring completed and tested, the podium hooked up and working great, and all that jazz.

Started with some low volume testing to get stuff started and discover that the van peaks at 35 hz! One major problem there is finding a bassrace song. So I skip that for the time being and start doing burp testing.

Well, I get one good burp off and I hear an interesting sound. I go to the front of the van to find this:


Yup. The brand new windshield that was installed this morning got completely destroyed on the first burp (did a 156.4 @ 35 hz btw). So that put a damper on things. I'm surely not going to drive this thing with a destroyed windshield.

Backup plan, get a trailer. We possibly had one lined up, so we taped up the windshield and kept testing.

I try bassrace all out and open the door to a plume of smoke. Lost a sub. So that's all she wrote, and the van will no longer be at slamology. I do have my s-10 with me though, so I will still be competing.

Some more pics of the carnage




After the tape and some testing. The cracks started to come through the tape!



Anyways, I'll still see you guys tomorrow, just look for my blue s-10 instead of the big beastly aerostar.

We could plexi the windshield, but the vehicle itself is not a good choice for an SPL vehicle. He needs a bigger, stronger van to handle the weight, and a body style that is known to get loud.

Plus the subs can't take the Power in this setup. We'd pretty much have to rebuild everything from scratch. May as well start with a new van and do everything right.

Gotcha, Van's like that are pretty cheap. Good luck on the next build....

the van would make a good 49.9 van with only a single amp and 3 mid lvl 18s. it just was a complete failure for what i was looking to get out of it.

didnt you get this opposed to the astro because the slight loss didnt bother you or something to that extent? i guess plans have changed since then. And damn i wish i was closer i would be all over that van. Good luck on your next Build

yah i got it cuz i found it for $350 and its all panel. its not pretty by any means but its loud. people said it cant get loud but i know it can. just wont get as loud as i would have liked it to be. plus 35hz is way too low of a tune for the 160 mark i was wanting. bassrace it woulda been fine for 49.9 all day long. drops low and plays high too. but o well u live and u learn.

yes its drivable other than the windshield is destroyed. its body is harsh condition and have a rigged back window cuz i had to break it to get into the back because the handle and door opening mechanism was rusted to ****.

i have a 260 amp external regulated alt on it right now that id be willing to sell for 300 for both the alt and regulator as well. if not ill put the stock alt back on it.

Well i found someone that wants the van. My buddy that owns Soundcheck the shop i deal with is going to keep it and put 4 15" mojos in it and use it as a marketing gimmic at the competitions he holds. He is gonna shatter a windshield for his customers to show it being done. Kinda a good idea which i never thought about.

and i think i have decided to find another CRX and try out Street C.
