I had the opportunity to hear this truck at finals last year (2016). It sounded amazing then prior to what has been recently done. It was one of the more "True to Life" sounding vehicles I demoed.

Seeing the equipment changes and the first class install that has taken place, my mind is blown. I can only imagine how GREAT this truck is going to sound. If you get the chance to listen to this Titian please do. Chad is an excellent tuner with good ear for audio. I promise it will be an experience you remember.

Chad great looking truck and keep up the good work. Chris Pate knocked that install out the park...

The one thing i LOVED about the Titan's previous install was its realism, it is probably one of the most true to life sounding cars I have had the pleasure of hearing, definitely one of the top cars in my area of the country. I cant wait to hear it now!!

Is the 3" speaker location just a carry over from the previous install? Also intrigued about the tweeter, it doesn't look like the Be would fit in there with it's large flange, but I'm only guessing...

Very nice install good sir.

Thats the 6 in beryllium midbass and a 2.5 inch Focal prototype tweeter. The beryllium tweeter would easily fit where the 2.5 tweeter is now if I ever decide to change... ;)

Oh wow, that picture is very deceiving.

Can you take pictures with the grills off, or is it a hush hush type scenario?

Ill try to get some pics when I have more time...

so mids are in dash? Not doors, I take it?
The doors houses the subs, the mids and tweets are in the pillars.

Basically, a 6 in 2 way, and subs all up front.

According to google maps its only a straight 16-1/2 hour drive from my home in eastern KY. :eek: In 1998 I drove from my home to Dallas for the IASCA finals. I swore that distance was beyond my limit for driving to a show, but it was finals so I did. Drove straight home in 21 hours only stopping for gas and coffee. Now I am married and my wife put me through hell for just going 3 hours to finals last year. (BTW my wife HATES HATES HATES car audio.)

Anyway back to your truck. Looks like Chris is doing really good work with the CNC machine. And using PVC sheets instead of MDF might get you some bonus install points for creative and unique materials.

Is the grill material on the dash there for sound absorption and capturing reflections off the windshield?

What type and size of sub enclosures are in each door?

Fly in sir! I'd pick ya up.. :)

And you are correct, under the grill cloth is Focal Blackhole 5 material to help with minimizing reflections.



The subs are playing IB in the door... They play to 20hz no problem.
