Wuttup~!... a friend of mine opened an audio shop (maybe a year ago) and it's located in Manhasset, Long Island called Next Level Mobile. He sponsored my car, which is about 3/4 done (and is also the reason I couldnt go to flushing meadows because we started it last wed and worked on it for 36hrs till now... i got home at 8am sunday morning from working on it... argh) and just wanted to share some quick teaser shots of the project. If anyone is looking for a good shop... give him a call Vinny 516-627-0000... and let him know i referred you. Anyways... what do u guys think?
the box is fiberglass and is a perfect mold of the wheel well. the entire box is wrapped in solar yellow vinyl to match the paint (black vinyl will be added to mirror my hood). i know the subs are off centered... the other side will be filled with a cap... also to come are etching... and a couple tvs... and an optima yellow. the sides are lowered to give a larger look... i might also wrap the fiberglass in CF... and finally the specs...
Alpine 4 channel MRV-545 amp
2 Alpine mono MRD-1005 amps
2 Alpine 12" Type-X subs (3000W max, 1000 rms)... made with of Carbon Fiber (see face)!!!!
Alpine interior speakers
Alpine IVA-D900 HU
other little crap...







PEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAACCCCCCCCCCEEEEEEEEEEE~!!!!

thats awsome.... i got an alpine type-R... anyone know if thats good? also i had a open box but it kinda fell apart and screws wouldent hold the sub in so i had to rig up a closed box and the sound is kind of off since its in a closed box.... also im having trouble i think tuneing my amp to make it sound right.. would this shop be able to help me at a decent price to tell me whats wrong?

romyo- yes the spare tire well is off centered... the only way to center them would be to invert the sub or raise the box... both of which im not a fan of


mikefate- yea getting my car broken into gave me the idea to redo everything... good in that way... still dont like the feeling that some dick was in my car... btw can i buy a fig prop kit from you?


glassdanse- type-r what size and ohm per coil? what is powering it and at what ohm? the type-r is a great sub and interior speaker if tuned right and properly fed... it has really good response and depth (depending on size)... my audio place can definitely fix ur box and tune it for a good price... a properly sealed box makes all the difference... lemme know if i can help you.


everyone- thanks for the comments... i appreciate it... it took a long ass time and a lot of work... im glad it came out nice....
