Default Kraut's Shenanigans Continues: MB 300TE Wagon Content

Welcome all to a new build. This time around I will be ruining a perfectly fine 1993 Mercedes Benz 300TE wagon. She's got 280k miles on the clock (that's 448,000 kilometers for your weirdos). I've had the car for going on a year now and the stereo has never worked. I'm tired of driving around with headphones plus I'm sitting on all this gear anyway, so it's time to stop being lazy.


My old build was (lost due to rust):
The '84 BMW E28 Lightweight System w/ 15" IB

I loved my old build. I've learned so much, met some awesome people at two NCSQ events I was fortunate to attend, sat in some awesome sound demos, and have also furthered my personal home audio journey quite a bit in the last few years.
I have to admit that the system in the beemer never quite sounded good. For the new build I want more midbass.

Wow!

That's a very clean example W124 wago. A car that will last forever and two years beyond that if kept after.

Can't wait to see some progress.

Man, that thing is beautiful! If maintained properly it will run a half a million miles...

It looks like you could fit a whole sheet of MDF in the back of that thing up to the front seats. What are the real dimensions?

That's one solid and clean 124

Looking forward to the build.

Not quite 4' between wheel wells, about 7' to the front seats. Tons of space.
Btw, which full rangers were you running in the Escape again? Sounded so good.

Thanks. I was running the Tectonic 2" full range drivers linked here
https://www.parts-express.com/tecton...4-ohm--297-216

It's slightly possible you heard them with the Tang Band W2 but the 1811s that i had are no longer available. https://www.parts-express.com/tang-b...river--264-886

I liked the Tectonics far better though.

Sub'd for the new thread & build. You've got a great blank palette to work with there!
