Good weather for sitting inside cars but not so much for standing outside talking. So dress in layers.

The locations won't let me do it behind the grilleIt's mostly solved by letting the tweeters play pretty low. I might be able to angle a pair of gb15's like that though.

As of now here's my demo cd/file.

Billy Joel-Honesty
Huey Lewis-Heart And Soul
Coolio-1,2,3,4
Metallica-The Unforgiven
Sevendust-Xmas Day
System Of A Down-Chop Suey!
Chen Xiao Ping-The Sound Of Silence
Cher-Just Like Jesse James
Steely Dan-Hey Nineteen
Alan Parsons Project-The Turn Of A Friendly Care:The Ace Of Swords
Hank Williams Jr-A Country Boy Can Survive
Chen Xiao Ping-La Isla Bonita
Susan Tedeschi-Friars Point
William Tell Overture

If you haven't listened to any of Chen Xiao Ping's stuff they're an awesome Chinese group that seems to do a lot of acoustical covers of songs from other nations. Just one of those tresures I would have never found if it wouldn't have been sent to me by a good buddy to stumble on.

Also, forgot to mention my headunit plays cd's a flac files...I'm 99% sure on the flac files anyway. No more watching someone trying to find the cd player that doesn't exist or watching them try to make my headunit play files I just told them it wouldn't play seconds before. USB and CD and play anything you want in there as long as it's not clipped bass tracks. If something blows up I obviously failed at tuning the system for anything and everything.

My good news is that I managed to get all four wheels changed... in the rain (after the lightning quit).

My bad news is my system sounds like dog poo... Hopefully Erin can help remedy that on Saturday.

Sweet! I bet he has it sounding better than mine does right now PDQ. Still think the Ram in its current state sounds better than the Jeep did with the 2-way stretched to the ragged edge of the usable range in the locations used. Midrange is more pronounced and locked in and I'm not used to that

I dunno brother... If I could describe your system for the Jeep in one word, it would be SMOOTH!

Agreed ^^ a little chilly, but had a great time nonetheless! Met a few new folks and listened to some good systems.

A shout out to everyone that provided input on mine and thanks to Erin (the dog whisperer ) for his tuning skills!

Trip was pretty uneventful. I did figure out why my gas mileage was sucking so bad on the interstate. 87 octane in a HEMI is acceptable but not preferred. Put 15 gallons of 93 on top of the 87 that was still in the 26 gallon tank and mileage shot up 3mpg! All at once it jumped up from 18 to 21mpg. The HEMI in my 11 Ram was bad picky on gas too. Before anyone calls me an idiot the HEMI is tuned to run best on 89 octane. To my knowledge that's how they get 395hp out of it. With 87 timing is pulled back and more gas gets burned. And if memory serves you also lose around 40hp.

Absolutely, man! You have a good starting point. If you have any questions don't hesitate to ask!

Oh, and that dog was cool. I was tempted to take him home with me.
