I've been lurking here for weeks planning out my build. The information here has been very helpful for selecting components. Since I now have everything, I figured I'd share the build out with the board.
To say I'm excited would be an understatement. I've had numerous "systems" in the past, but this is my first full build out in a few years. This may be my last also, so I want to do it right. I love the truck and plan to keep it for the foreseeable future. Now I want the stereo to give me goose bumps whenever I drive it. Hopefully I've selected the right assortment of components to accomplish that task.
Factory 8.4 Uconnect without Alpine
JL Audio Fix 82 (OEM Integration)
JL Audio Twk D8 (DSP)
Hertz MLK 165.3 Mille Legend's (Front Components)
Hertz MPX 165.3 Mille PRO's (Rear Coaxial)
Alpine R-Series R-W12D4 (Subwoofer)
Rockford Fosgate Power T400X4ad (Front and Rear Speakers)
Rockford Fosgate Power T750/1bd (Subwoofer)
Fox Acousics Single 12 (Vented) Enclosure
I purchased a bulk pack of Dynamat, Stinger FAST Rings, a JL Audio FiX-LSA-4 (in case it's needed), a Rockford 1/0 amp kit, 6x9 to 6.5 brackets, and will be using mostly EFX interconnects.
The amps, Mille crossovers, Fix 82 and Twk D8 will be mounted on a rack behind the rear seat. I'm modifying the rear seat to fold forward. I'll probably display the ditribution/fuse block also.
Again, since I'm getting older, who knows if I'll do this again. I just hope it delivers. I've coveted the Mille Legends for years, so my expectations are through the roof. If the passive setup isn't what I need it to be, I'll purchase the T/4002 and go active. I'd rather not have to go active though.
