    New soldering station (pics)

    I cant really tell you. I've never used it and kinda unsure about it. Are there things I would like to get on it, sure. But sometimes I can find just as good of a price at an online retailer with a BBB rating. And for car audio if it is a common product I can go to the local flea market and get it at a better price then ebay.
  2. Glad to hear you haven't given up on it and giving it a chance.

    Oh yeah I totally agree. But sometimes it can be a bad thing in that I sometimes have completion ADD. Where I know what I want to get completed but I veer off and purchase something useless or not related to the project and that sets me back a bit.

    I dont have the mids in yet but I will have spacers. The pictures I have seen though research all have some sort of spacing to them. Heck even the stock 5.25" have spacers. I would work on them now but it is to cold to do anything with the door panels, just to brittle. Good idea, I am not to worried about it though. I just wanted something in there to screw the box, and battery down to so they didn't slide around. When I made it I was thinking that I was going to have to get the cardboard out to make a template. But GM provided me with one because there already was a carpet piece that cutout in there. So I just pulled it out and used that as my template. Thanks. Most likely the tweeters are going to be mounted to the windshield pillar trim. This build has been a long process. I believe I got the head unit about 2-3 years ago with the plan to go active. The box and electrical was done this summer, and the sub were just recently installed. All that is left to get are the tweeters, speaker wire, pillar trim, RCAs, couple fuse holders, and sound deadening.

    Thanks, no it is sealed both subs have their own box. The car is holding up pretty good for being 10 years old, could be because it only has about 65,000 miles on it.

    Tidying up wires a bit. Subs are in and hooked up working. Just need to adjust settings.

    Favorite car audio forums

    My most frequented are. 1. SSA (Like the information there) 2. CA-F ( Feels like a bunch of friends sitting around shooting the shit.) 3. ROE (Some good Information but need to siphon a little crap) Aaron is right though I do like my research, I wouldn't have picked up my Zed made USAcoustics as my first amp if I didn't. I was originally going to get a hifonics Boltar but they sold it before I got to get it. So I seen the USA in the shop and took down the name and model number, did my research, liked the numbers on it and picked it up. Most of my impulse buys have not turned out well so I do my research when I can. I do find some of the other qualities in me also.

    I should be able to get them in soon. Just sold the previous setup I had and am waiting on a partsexpress order that should be here Monday. After that the auditioning should begin. hmm I usually like Daryl. I believe it stems for an old comedy bit dont recall who did it though. I was on a golf weekend with my dad and a couple buddies. We have a group of guys that go golfing every summer to the same place in Michigan and 4 of them go there a day before and golf. Well I was in the group of four one year and the night we got there we hit the sauce pretty good. After the bar which consisted of a couple games of ring toss(make a ring out of straws and throw it at the bottles on the bar and do a shot of which ever it lands on) we went back to the motel and sat outside drinking were we met some people(always meet the strangest people there). Well our group of guys all introduced ourselves as Daryl and we all worked in law enforcement. I think we had them going pretty good. We sat and drank with them till about 4 in the mourning when I looked at the clock and realized we got to be up to golf at 7. So the whole weekend I was Daryl #3, I even put it on my closest to the pin tags. Doesnt work to well telling the story but it was a pretty fun time.

    I too am curious about the wardens. The thing with the 3hp is I can buy it now then wait to spend the rest in recone. Those would be like the flatlynes I just got. Really need to install the flatlynes and the rest of the install, instead of thinking of different directions.

    No its not a neo its a ceramic from an LA Storm X1. Its actually the whole sub but I guess the motor is more of an interest to me. I just not sure its the right time to buy it, I calculate it would be about $250 after sending it to get reconed. The main thing I would be looking at it for would be a cheap SPL sub, but I might be able to buy a cheap SPL sub for that much new at a later time if I wanted to. I am just trying to think this out rationally, maybe Ill wait on it see how this weekend goes. I have someone interested in buying my old setup so I can get some supplies to get the IAs in.

    I dont think I ever threw it out but it is Nate. However I also go by a bunch of other names mainly when inebriated.
  16. I find that it being electric gives it even more of a interesting factor. I would also like to know what it is like to drive something like that with the instant torque of a electric motor.
  17. hmm lets start with Tesla Roadster (Its a nice car that shows the performance you can get from electric power. Maintenance shouldn't be to bad for it.) 02 Trans Am WS6 ( Dream car growing up, and sense the insurance sees it as a trans am no matter what it is Ill have it upgraded by Lingenfelter to 427CI and twin turbos. ) There could be more if I sit down and think for awhile.
  18. This is a great topic. But I am afraid I cant answer because I couldn't choose just one car.

    Turn Me Up

    http://www.turnmeup.org/ I love the idea of this organization, it is to set a standard for recording music. Basically they want to set standards on recording music to counter act the loudness war. After the guidelines are followed, they place stickers on the albums notifying the consumer that there is nothing wrong with the recording all they need to do is "Turn Me Up" to make it louder. If you want to show support sign up.

    I'm sure there is a lot more into the car then that is shown. Interesting non the less.

    Turn Me Up

    I like the idea they have and it would be great if it takes off. I dont remember how I found the site, just one of the days scouring the internet following links. It dawned on me to bring it to others attention when I was going through my music collection recently and came across two albums by the same artist. One was the original recording and the other was a greatest hits album. The original was great on the recording volume then I switched to the same song on the greatest hits album it was way to loud and I actually had to turn the volume down. It just made me really disappointed.
  22. RTA = Real time analyzer It lets you see the frequency response as it is happening and you can make adjustments to the eq to change the response to what you want.

    Have you ever seen vanishing point? That whole movie seemed like it was a car chase.

    X2, It is a good complement to the album. I haven't watched it in a while, I was just running those on the laptop because they were the first ones I grabbed. Other good music movies to check out are The Blues Brothers both one and two are pretty good, also The Doors not really a musical movie but shows a nice story of the band.
