    the etched window may be a nice touch.

    the tc-9 is a larger sub then the id12 so it won't play nicely. i'm actually farming that part of the build out to an installer from the corvette forum. I refer a lot of business to him so he's making me a custom box for a reasonable price.

    so I built the frames for the 'tool boxes' today. these will be lined with foam that has been cut out to hold some common tools. on top of that will be removable false floor panels. the subbox isn't done yet but i have a 'proxy' sub in there right now just for design purposes. The sub is inverted in the picture but the real sub will be facing the correct way with a rectangular grill protecting it and hiding it. the grill will have curved corners and be covered with grill cloth.
    I also decided to box off the back area. This will give the computer and amp some more airspace and allow the area to be a bit cooler. on each facade there will be a hole cut out for vent fans.

    the panels were tossed in there for pictures sake. i still have to build the supports for the piece and file some edges so the tie together a bit better... but you'll get the idea. (and the wires will all be hidden :blush: )

    onto the pictures:







    to do list:
    • sub box

    • mount zapco amp... 1/2 done

    • make custom xlr-symblink cable

    • wire up trunk

    • add fans for zapco amp and computer

    • make custom sub grill

    • carpet vinyl

    • add 2 more layers of deadening and a layer of ensolite to each door

    • install/aim woofers and tweets

    • complete custom pc interface (debating on doing this though)

    Got the car back today and the amp rack is done. I have to say the quality of work was outstanding. the amp rack was a lot better then the one i was originally making :leaving: I'm happy with 90% of the install but there are a couple issues that i have to bring up with them but i'm sure they'll be resolved (a couple were my fault :willy: )

    I made some good ground with the dash though, that is still my baby and You guys are going to see some things not usually done in a typical install.


    here are the pics so far, no night picks yet but it looks pretty cool. I swapped out the fan for a blue led fan and the tubes glow orange...great combo imho.

    all buttoned up:

    tc sounds tc-9 subwoofer:

    raw components (two Phaze/butler td1500's pushing 75wpc @ 8 ohms):

    dac 122 s/n ratio, 192/24 bit, balanced outputs:

    active x-over:

    sub amp (zapco ref. 500wrms @ 2 ohms):



    that's it. oh yeah, the carpet looks a bit off in the pictures but it's very close in real life.

    I'll post some pictures of the dash piece as soon as possible... once quick question. what do you guys feel is a better look, recessed or flush mounted screen?

    i personaly like the recessed look. flush just doesnt look right to me.

    i think a recess of about 1/4" would be perfect

    he is asking what you like more....

    do you like the screen to be flush with the surface of the dash (flush), or have it inside the dash just a tad (recessed).

    But as you can see

    There are like 3 levels assuming it even looks like this anymore. Which one would it be flush with? I would need to see more, maybe some mock-ups or photoshops to see what he really means. He may have changed it all around, I don't know.

    i have a feeling it would be flush with whatever level he puts it in (if he goes flush)

    If he decides to go recessed, it owuld be pushed-in just a tad on whatever level he put it in....

    its not that hard man...i remember a saying once said to me "K.I.S.S" meaning...Keep It Stupid Simple...you are thinking too hard
