Re: 07 SRT8 Audio Upgrade

Re: 07 SRT8 Audio Upgrade

Re: 07 SRT8 Audio Upgrade

Thats looking great so far. Running your system will be real easy with no interior to get in the way lol. when that thing is up and running i want a ride!!!! never rode in a srt8 before. im sure its about as fast as my V6 right?

Re: 07 SRT8 Audio Upgrade

Sooo this leads me to my next question and i will probably do another thread because this really pisses me off about Jeep! When taking the weather stripping off the top of the door jams i noticed RUST!!!!! Not just a little bit but quite a lot and on both sides!!!
My jeep is only 4 yrs old and had no damage up there. The funny thing is that it was coming from behind a metal molding the holds the weather stripping. You can see in the pics that they didnt even paint behind the molding and just put them on with double sided 3M tape then screws. Any water that gets back to bare metal especially in S Fla will RUST! How can Jeep not paint the entire Jam and just install these moldings???? I am very upset with Jeep for this.....

Does anyone know the warranty on Rust???

What should I do??

If you have never rode in a SRT8 i will give you a ride one day. It HAULSSSSSSS ASSSSSSS!!!!!!
The grip is just amazing when taking off and the sweet sound of when you punch it getting onto the highway is pure music!!

I cant wait till she is done! I have alot of nice stuff being done to the body and paint. Plus the system is going to POUND!!

Re: 07 SRT8 Audio Upgrade

I got a Soundstream 1500 Class D stable at 1 ohm for now. I know some people thing soundstream amps are crap but I have had diff luck with them. I thought I took a pic of it but I didnt. I will when I get home tonight and post it.

The most work is going to be my Fiberglass box I am making. I am doing a custom one to fit my subs and Jeep but also mounting the amp on top like its floating in the air.

I will take pics along the way. Going to start building the box tonight since my Jeep is in the hands of my body and paint guy now

Re: 07 SRT8 Audio Upgrade

Nothing wrong with soundstream. hell I like soundstorm amps. people always tell me they are crap, but I sold hundreds of them in my shop and never had one come back or anyone that bought one complain about them. so it's all about if you like something and it works like it should, why not use it? I sure will be keeping an eye on this build.
