I really wanna see some serious Xterra Stereo Installs. None of this "i have a small box with a speaker in it i call a sub" stuff.
If there's anyone out there who can show me some nice stuff - it would greatly be appreciated. I need to start getting some design ideas for mine in aug. When i get mine up and running (which i am personally designing) i'll post them up.....
Thanx everyone...

Now that's what i'm talking about ... i've seen the top two - nice jobs - the bottom two are just basic "boxes". I'm curious to see people who have done thier own installs - maybe around the $3-5,000 mark.
Rockford did up a nice system, but i don't have $50,000 for a system.
I'm a JL fan anyway.
Thanks for the amazin' postings X!

I compete in car audio with my xterra. Feel free to go to my site http://sounddomain.com/id/justagirl. The last page has the best pictures. Sometimes the link does not work and you'll have to type it in.

Tracey, I'd love to take a look but it seems the link doesn't work, nor does copying and pasting.

I'll check back later.

The link works, you just have to take the period off the end of it.

Ya, trace... your xterra was actually one of the first ones i came across when i got interested in buying an xterra, and putting a system into it. I saw your xterra's system months ago.
I'm getting my X in Aug, but with the pick up i have now, i hit 141.6 dB with two JL 10w3's. I was really impressed by your system - thanks for lettin me know.

Any one else with systems, keep 'em comin'!
(systems - not just a sub in a square box)

Well I know you don't want to look at just boxes but you can see my whole system HERE I use my cargo area so a non removable sub setup was not practical plus it isn't all about bass unless your DBing :p
P.S. my system pegs my 120 DB sound meter I don't need any more than that.

Thanks there Kev, I like your tweets and component setup. I don't plan on being a heavy competitor like Tracy, but i do like to go in maybe 2 or 3 comps a year - just for fun.

KEEP 'EM COMIN' !!!

Who did that simple setup with the sub in the rear panels? That's what I was looking to do, but never brought it to fruition cuz I kept getting "not recommended" ever where I turned!

Are you referring to mine?



It actually is not near as simple as it looks. For some build up pictures search under "My Project X build-up" smile

What can I say lil_pino? I am a nut. I didnt even list the playstation 2 ;-) (may change to xbox if I can add some shock absorbance for the HDD), Xbox for obvious "X-ness" of it.

That's nice MRC! I like the box setup. Big enough, yet good for some cargo.
I like the JL/Eclipse combo - nice equip. That's somewhere around the mark i wanna be... what dB do you hit with that? Or have you never had it measured?

Thanx

Photecs, I never got it tested but it should be up in the 150-155 range, its pretty damn loud.

The X Factor the box, amps, suds and cap ran me a little over 3,000.

I'm sorry but 150 - 155 is not likely. I would guess in the low 140's.

BTW: 140dB is very loud.

Hey there N2, i doubt it would be the low 140 bro, with 2 JL10W3's i hit 141.6 dB with 500 watts RMS powering them.
Those eclipses may be a little underpowered for maximun SPL, but they would hit at least in the upper 140's.
With a little more juice - they'd hit the 150's no prob.
(500/1 JL is my top chioce - nice pick)
I've seen a 156.7 dB hit with a single JL 15W3 with the right wattage. Anythings possible with good equip.

I am estimating that the system would hit 143 - 144 db. If it does more, than great smile It is a sealed enclosure so it most likely has a relatively smooth response as opposed to a large ported SPL type enclosure that is tuned to hit the frequency of the standing wave of the vehicle. It also depends on what meter we are talking about. Term pro, Audio Control, B&K etc...
