Wow, it's come a long way from when I used to sharpie the traces on to the board then dump it in the etchant and tilt it back and forth until cooked.
I really need to stop reading these sort of projects, I will never have spare money or time. Soooo tempted to have a go at hard core modding like this!!
I thankfully have loads of tech students who can make boards and stuff for me as 'uni work' so they get some credit i get free stuffs :)
Again thanks for the inspiration my missus hates you all :p
any project worth that title(the missus hates it!!) means it is going well!!
just a little bit of a update:
the Kicker sticker came off the dash-- it was starting to fade, and i am starting to get bothered with the audio quality of my cvr's--they bump nice, but lately, i have been listening to more country, and alternative, so they show their weaknesses for smooth bass. i am considering upgrading to a single 12".. at this point the peerless xls/xxls subs look really nice..
any recommendations for a loud, transparent sub(transparent in the way it blends with the front stage, not in visible appearance)?
yesterday, work sent me down to cinncinati, ohio for some service calls-- my last call was 30 mi. form parts express, so i was required to stop there.
i ended up leaving with the quad pack of tactile tranducers, 2 pairs of some sound exiters, 2 of the aura-sound 6" drivers-- because the aura drivers have always intrigued me, and a Omnimic measurement system-- i know my tweeters need adjustment, but after messing with them for a while, i can't get them to sound amazing, so i am hoping this will help, and give me another thing to use the carpc for..
i don't know what i am going to do with the sound exiters/tactile tranducers, but they are always interesting-- i am playing with the idea of mounting at least the tactile transducers in the seats..
i found a error in my led tails-- the smaller board has a array of 5 series led's for illumination, and was only supposed to be 4 series leds..
and i just ordered some press-n-peel sheets that should make the circuit board process a little easier..
otherwise, still bored, still waiting for winter to end, so i can start releasing noxious fumes outdoors..
You every try out any RE products? I have an RE 10" in my car now and LOVE it.
^ i have looked at them a couple of times. while they have excelent products, they are more spl based then sq--these days i'm looking for a more sq sub...
I am running an RD Sonance (12") I bought it on recommendation for a strong performer in SQ and I have to say I am VERY impressed with it. I was shipped a 10" by accident first so now I have one to throw in the Camaro this summer as well :)
Yeah the se model I picked up was for SQ more so than spl and I am really impressed with it, now a friend installed a RE 15" pure SPL and WOW in his jetta it was amazing!
