    Re: CadillacPimpinNOLA's 95 Fleetwood buildup 56K your computer will blow up

    took this after staring to remove the packing peanuts, thats alot, took a while to get them all out to. got my port length and size that I need after all displacement and all I have to do is drag some wood out, cut it to length and install it. then sand the box baffles to make a smooth transition to the port...Its getting there...



    few pics of how the 360.2 screen for tuning looks, all bluetooth controlled, no buttons, seperate eq for each speaker and subs...its going to take a while fine tuning it to perfection but im going to get it

    Re: CadillacPimpinNOLA's 95 Fleetwood buildup 56K your computer will blow up

    you can download it from rockford fosgate if you dont have the disc. its free but you have to have a 360 sound processor for it to work...theres no buttons on the sound processor, all bluetooth controlled with a micro-processor to store the settings...none of my old phones or new computer can link up with it since RF for some reason took outdated as soon as it was released windows mobile and used that for the OS, an iphone or android would be so much better but thats on the new one not released yet and cost a fortune...I borrow a sprint palm from my friend at a local stereo shop, he had it all setup already

    anyway, link up with bluetooth, set to your liking, save and your done till you want to change settings again....fine tune it to perfection

    Re: CadillacPimpinNOLA's 95 Fleetwood buildup 56K your computer will blow up

    Just reading through your thread again, you said you used 4 packs of dynamat and didn't do the floor. Would a fifth pack be required to do the floor.? How much did it help with road noise? I'm thinking of "having" mine done, I want to hear my heart beating at highway speeds, and not because my wife is driving!!! Dynamat xtreme plus some foam, was quoted around 15hundy for the whole car.

    Re: CadillacPimpinNOLA's 95 Fleetwood buildup 56K your computer will blow up

    i have 2 sheets left over out of 4 packs, and 1 more pack i could do the floor and firewall...as for road noise its real quiet im sure doing the floor will make it a lot quieter I just dont have the funds to spend on another pack right now...just spent $100 on some brake covers to go behind the rim. will be painting those to match soon.

    some updates, i swear im almost done with this damn speaker box once and for all...I cut the port opening, the jigsaw i have sucks and so do the blades, the blade bends and screws my cuts up. so i tried to build a port, screw it to the inside and just sand it smooth from the baffle to the port...that didnt work out good... ended up buying a cheap air belt sander, cut the wood for the port,, cut the whole on the box bigger and sanded the edges smooth then beat the port in...later ill glue it and secure it to the box and maybe resin it up monday

    Re: CadillacPimpinNOLA's 95 Fleetwood buildup 56K your computer will blow up

    mocked the port up, had to remove it, glue and screw it together then sand it a lil bit to fit it back in the box...I just resined the outside it, when it dries im going to flip it over, so the inside where the port meat the baffle and then ill smooth it out with some filler so it looks half ass decent.






    got some etching primer on the disc brake covers, sanded them and hopefully tommorow i can get a lil paint on them and get them on the car

    yep it will really make the chrome pop with the red background, also going a 15" cover in a 15" rim will not 100% but will greatly reduce brake dust on the rims

    Re: CadillacPimpinNOLA's 95 Fleetwood buildup 56K your computer will blow up

    if its not one thing its another, bought 15" dust covers, assumed they would fit a 15" rim so no need to test fit especially since the rims are a pain to remove and install...dust cover is 13.5" in diameter...they dont fit...seems im going to have to find a lathe to perfect circle cut them and hopefully not scratch them.






    got bored when I got home so the box is in, both pieces bolted together, i really have no plans to remove it except maybe to cover it at a later date, I installed the subs and wired them up also. maybe soon ill hook the batteries up and throw the amps in and try to tune it a lil bit...

    I hooked one sub up, small wire, no charging system and with everything turned down except the radio volume which I didnt goto my max setting, well im suprised my rear view is still on the glass...I so cant wait to get this done

    Re: CadillacPimpinNOLA's 95 Fleetwood buildup 56K your computer will blow up

    well it goes from not too bad to worse...I was setting the bass amp and I dropped one of the leads for my meter, it was hooked to the ground and to the positive on the amp, touched the dynamat for a second and got a spark. well now the output for my highs on the sound processor isnt working...thats a few 100 right there and I wont be replacing it anytime soon if it doesnt start working by tommorow. ill try a reset and such. but if i cant fix it then its going to change the whole sound of the system...

    to take my mind off that BS I got some shrink tube and lugs and crimped the power wires under the hood and hooked them to the alternator, im going to route them a lil better but I can now start getting the wires hooked up in the back before doing the big 3 under the hood

    When it rains it pours. Sorry to hear about your luck. I'm the same way though, if it weren't for bad luck Id have none at all.

    Re: CadillacPimpinNOLA's 95 Fleetwood buildup 56K your computer will blow up

    my friend at the audio shop told me RF will fix it for $137 plus shipping...I may just hold off till the better 360.3 comes out...if i find this older 360.2 ill be in it for about $337. if i wait for the better 360.3 way more features and such , I can get it for about $350-400...ill just save up for its release and build everything else around it

    ----------

    and as soon as I get the right diameter to fit my rim, my brother is going to take the covers to work and lathe them to my measurments

    Re: CadillacPimpinNOLA's 95 Fleetwood buildup 56K your computer will blow up

    made some progress recently...got the holes drilled through the floor so i could run my new ground straps through and bolt them to the frame, installed the rubber grommets for safety and bolted the battery down with a nut and bolt instead of the sheetrock screws i mocked it up with...crimped all the lugs on the wires, shrink tubed them and hooked them up to the batteries with some temporary bolts...the subs are loud, not as loud inside the car as I was expecting but outside its insane. and partly is b/c the back seat and dynamat plus the box is facing rear in the trunk...its still loud, flexs the trunk and can be heard loud and clear from many blocks away....

    ill have some updated pics later...going to try to mount the compressors later, then I have to remove a 4gauge wire i used for temp sound, hook the highs amp to the rear and get some more lugs so i can upgrade all the grounds(Big 3) under the hood

    Re: CadillacPimpinNOLA's 95 Fleetwood buildup 56K your computer will blow up

    got a lil more work done, the compressors are mounted except for one bolt i still need to get in...i want to work on it tomorrow but I have a much needed side job and I so need the money right now, so i have to get this done...anyway, pics

    hole through floor and mocked up battery with sheetrock screws


    "0" Gauge grommet in hole, mirrored on both sides


    underneath the car, the "0" Gauge grounds for the battery


    looking up toward the taillight, behind the bumper, both sides are the remote mount fresh air filters for the compressors


    compressor mounted and airline run through the rear


    wires all over



    ----------

    o, and i found a resistor burned up in the sound processor, so a friend of mine is going to replace it sometime hopefully this week and see if that fixes it...id attempt it but i dont have the fine tips for the soldering gun and my hand isnt steady enough for that tedious work, this piece is really really small
