I love it! I was hoping you'd stay period-correct and have used DVCs or Power DVCs but I can't argue against the audiophiles. Great install!

Thanks! But in terms of amps & subs, it is period correct..lol

This gen of Audiophiles were released witht the "ix" line. The Punch "DVC's" were released @ the time of the "X2" line of amps

When we had the DSMs in we had the DVCs and Power DVCs. THose subs also carried through the "a" amps as well. Now that I think about it the audiophiles may have caught the tail end of the dsm amps. Hmmmm.... dammit, now I gotta dig out my old training guides. lol

Thanks bro, I was just about to copy the link to that lit.

It's no biggie though. My intention with this particular one wasn't to necessarily do a "complete" old school RF build. That will come later sometime in another vehicle

I have most of the gear for the next "full" build.

2- bnib RFR-812
2- bnib RFR-1406
2- binb RFR-1404
2- bnib RFR-14x
RFX-8140
Symmetry EPX2... on the hunt for a "mint" one though
amps?.... tbd

That should be a fun build.

Thanks bro!

I absolutely LOVE the 8140 as well. Most peeps hate the aesthetics but I'm the complete opposite. I totally hate myself for selling my BNIB 8140 a few months ago

this is more then just an old school build. this is a step back in time! i mean even the Car its going in is almost time period correct. its like you scanned a bunch of old 3x5's and posted them up. my hat is off to you fine sir!

its just past being time piece correct but i have a punch x crossover just sitting in my desk drawer that is 100% functional. if your interested.

Awesome work, & sweet equipment. That series of Punch amps is still one of my all-time favorites. Three subs is sort of retro too, I like it - i like it a lot.

wait 16 years it will all come back! teach them before their friends can. you will know more then them. my oldest is 12 and he doesn't really like the garage. my youngest is 10 and she will most likely design her own first system. i will just execute the fabrication and install.

Now you've got me thinking...my oldest is also 12 with an 11 and a 10 for good measure (all boys). My 10 is affectionately referred to as "wrench" - he likes to help me work on things in the garage (even a motor swap - didn't teach him to weld yet though ). They all like to help - varying degrees of dedication/skill/attention span though. They all play multiple sports year round - part of my time problem...

I need to dig out my old pics from when I was competing in the early 90's.

Sorry for the O/T.

Amazing work! I'd love to have such a well crafted old school system. I literally wore out the RF brochure when I was a sophomore in HS looking through it (the Soundstream one too) so thanks for the trip down memory lane.

Nicely done! The wife has got to be enjoying that system.

Thanks bro!! You see exactly what I was going for and I'm thankfull for that!

This is a 2000 Teg, but this gen ran from 94-01'. So you could essentially see this Car back in 1995 with this particular gear. I was also trying to use period correct install techniques to give it a certain 90's install feel




Thanks for all of the compliments guys!!! I'm glad some of you could take a trip down memory lane with me!

Awsome build. You should be proud, I would love to have a system like this one. The components used are top notch as well.
