    Default Any SQL competition winners want to give advice to a SEMA show car build on audio?

    Hey guys, I've got to understand more about the audio thing before I complete a sound system addon to a 2009 build which is the sort of thing we don't usually build into a car.

    Also I do expect anyone who volunteers information to know what they are talking about. I can provide detailed photos about the car's stock setup to specific people but not in public. Let me know know if you'd be interested in a quick back and forth and I'll contact you directly too as that's always worked best for me. Thanks.

    The car is a 2009 mustang (i know another) It's built as the best handling car at sema however so it's a pretty interesting car.

    I'm trying to get it at least credible on a sound competition level.

    Currently it's got an AVN 726E head unit (just came out & ordered last week), Rockford Fosgate 3SIXTY.2 bluetooth equalizer, 3 McIntosh MC 431 400w+ amps (1 to the front speakers, 1 to the rear & midbass, 1 to the sub).

    It has a custom enclosure of 2 cu. ft. in the rear deck made out of fibreglass for the rear full range speakers to isolate them from the sub, and a JL stealth box for the trunk.

    I ordered 2 mega bulk packs of Dynamat and 4 1/2" Dynalineer packs.

    I'm planning to buy: 2 JL ZR650-Csi speakers front, mountable with custom welded brackets. 2 JL ZR570-Csi speakers rear. 2 JL ZR800CW 8" midbass in the doors.

    The Stealthbox came with a JL 13W6v2 for the sub, I'm not sure if thats worth replacing.

    I've also ordered a Batcap Powerpack, which is supposed to handle a 8000 watt system and has a 35 Farad capacitor, the manufacturer says it can supply 600 watts @ 30 amps for 15 minutes. This is a 1200 watt system. For speaker wire I'm using Cobalt Cable.

    Basically I picked out the most expensive things I could possibly pick.

    Damn, I wish the build and install happened online. There would be tons to learn.

    OP just wants to get it done and he knows doing it online would be a pain.......15 different people giving their $0.02 and all going in diff directions. :D

    Ok so what if only op and mac were to post till the install is completed? Nah prob wouldnt happen........just wishfull thinking and fishing ;)

    am sure it will turn out great

    Sure I'll post updates, I'm just waiting for if and when Arron replies to my last e-mail to post the setup I finally decided on. Almost everything has changed at this point.
