Default 2004 Suburban

When I started this project I had 2 goals in mind; Fantastic Sound Quality & Stealth. My front state is CDT audio ES 620's powered by an Audison VR 206 amp. For bass I have an Image DynamicsIDQ 10 in a fiberglass enclosure behind the rear panel powered by an Audison VR 209 400 watts mono. The head unit is an Alpine 9887 and a 160 Gig iPod (154 Gigs of music on it).

From the battery I ran 0/1 gauge to a distribution block under the center consol then 4 gauge to both amps. All Wire I purchased from KnuKonceptz. I completely sound deadened the entire floor of the vehicle, behind both rear panels and almost anywhere else I could reach my hands. All sound deadening by Raamat approximately 200 square feet total!

Start of Project


Jack Bolts Removed


Sound Deadening Behind Enclosure


Fiberglass Enclosure with Image Dynamics IDQ 10


Start of Door Panels


Door Sound Deadened (Inside of Outer Shell, both inside and outside of Inner Shell)


Ensolite over Raamat


Raammat added to door panel (more for weight than noise)


Distribution block in center consol (0/1 gauge from battery to distribution block)


Tweeter in stock location only minor modification needed

This was my last install, I am now working on my 2001 Honda Accord and putting my Suburban up for Sale. Can't afford to keep putting 5-600 a month in fuel in it.

I have an'04 Suburban that I am going to start in on soon. I'm interested in more info on the fiberglass sub enclosure. Is it a full box, or is the front panel glassed directly to the sheet metal?

I ended up using a PPI A600 on the IDQ 10 and was very happy with the overall results.
