Re: ejschultz Build Log

One other thing I'd like to post, I just hit 75000 about 2 weeks ago. I got a pic while driving in a snowstorm...




THIS IS FROM APPROXIMATELY MID JANUARY 2011.

Alright, here we go. I finally got out and got a couple new pics of the alternator installed on the Jeep and my tinted signals too. It only took 3 weeks...

Re: ejschultz Build Log

I still get a slight voltage drop with the new alternator, but it's nowhere near what it was with that 90 amp joke that was on there before. I have to be full tilt before I get any drops. Before, I had to be about 3/4 of full tilt before I started to notice any drops, and they were pretty severe drops. Thanks too.

Re: ejschultz Build Log

Alright, I went ahead and put my Type R in a box built to the recommended specs by Alpine in the manual for the sub for what Alpine calls "optimum" performance. The box is 19.5" wide x 16.5" tall x 20" deep. The port is 22.5" squared. It's 27" long inside the box. The box grosses at 2.9 cubes and nets at 2.25 cubes after the port and sub. Fb is 30 Hz. So far I'm liking the box, but I still can't pick up on the extreme lows for some reason. They're at least audible now, but they drop off pretty severely. I may need a little more power for the Type R. Hmm... Kicker 750.1? Anyway, on to the pics...

Re: ejschultz Build Log

I had a little bit of time today before work so I decided to finally deaden the front doors of the Jeep. I had/still have a ton of Audio Wrap deadener. This stuff is super sticky. The backing on it isn't paper like other deadeners, it's plastic. That kinda sucked because it was tearing and stretching while I was attempting to pull it off. Other than that, I don't have any complaints about the product. I did my best to seal off the doors using the deadener. The only holes left were holes the door panels inserted to. I haven't listened to anything yet so I'll have to update you all when I actually sit down to listen to something in the Jeep to let you know what kind of difference it made. On to the pics...







I did slip my mind to get a pic of the passenger door before I started deadening. I guess you can imagine a mirror image of the driver door for what that looked like before I started.

Re: ejschultz Build Log

The deadener made a world of difference. If I didn't know any better, I'd say that I had a new set of mids in the doors. They shine now more than ever before. This is the first time I was able to "A B" test deadener. When I did my car, I deadened as I installed the 720PRS components; I've never heard them in my doors without the deadener. I've been running these speakers for quite some time now with no deadener. The couple of hours I spent doing this today was well worth it.

Re: ejschultz Build Log

And lastly, for the day, my sticker collection...

The back windows are the same on both sides minus the Jeepforum.com sticker.



And I had to get this for the window on the hatch...

Re: ejschultz Build Log

The system sounds pretty decent too. I've got a couple of plans for it in the near future. I'm going to make an amp rack for the 2 amps. My 2 channel amp is going to be swapped for a 4 channel amp so I can run my front stage actively and attenuate my tweeters a little better without EQing the attenuation. I just picked up a 4 channel Alpine V12 amp to match my mono amp. I wanted to do something bigger in the Jeep, but I'm also attempting to make it a "weekend warrior." That being said, anything I do in there needs to be easily removed so I can wheel without worrying about it moving around. Right now, I have an inline fuse with my mono amp's turn on lead. I pull that fuse, disconnect the speaker wire from my box, and my box comes out. Once I have the amp rack in place, the box will be the only piece of equipment that'll need to be removed for safe wheeling.
