  • 1990 RR V8 install, take two!

    As most of you know, my last install went really belly-up. I hated the moulding! Looked like someone just dumped tar on it.

    However, I've been hard at work around various bits of the car, just got 245 50/50%s fitted yesterday. Kinda working on everything at the moment...spraying interior trim, sand, bondo, work on the sub box, engine electrics etc.
    I need some more terminals before I do my 0AWG Big 3.

    Anyway, here's progress so far.

    That sub box is beyond loud! 3cuft at 28Hz. It moves my rear mirror up at 1/3 volume...of the smaller amp (250W). Yikes

      popped the front speaker (driver's) in and wired up the smaller amp, really punchy and clear. Sub causes an unbelievable amount of rattle

            alot has happened since. Parents separated, moved house, got hired and fired, found the problem in the RR which caused it to surge...ah well, 2005 was a good year

                          I think I own one of the only Classic RR's on here, and to the best of my knowledge I'm the first to put a PC in one
