Here's a link to some pics of my car...the trunk is currently undergoing some minor changes...primarily color & removal of vinyl.

Let me know what you guys think... :afro: LINK

oh man seriously?? you have possibly the best looking and most functional system of any TL i've ever seen. i'm way beyond impressed. i love the look of the trunk...and even more i love the way you did the dash and console install.

i WISH i had the balls to do a custom system in my ol' TL like you did.

MUCHO props, brah!

Very very nice! I love the setup. One question. What are the two things in front of the seats? They look like cross overs but I can't really tell.:dunno:

If so, how are they mounted. I can't really tell from the picture. Looks awesome man!

Thanks guys!

Each is a 30 band EQ...one for each side of the car. I cut a hole in the plastic at the base of the seat and mounted the brakets to the underside of the seats...the EQs slide right in on the brakets.
When pushed in they are flush and totally unnoticable.

The stream of lights on the driver's side is a Zapco DA II digital/analog converter...it basically hightens the digital sound of CD's....it actually is really annoying b/c it picks up everything on the recording...so if the song is recorded with a hiss in the background you'll hear it. However on clean recordings the sound is amazing!!! The knobs on the passenger side is a Zapco SX-SL. It is the master volume control & crossover.

I don't have a pic of the Eq's up close but I'll work on that for you. As for them being separate being a bad thing...no not really. If gives me the the option to tune the car more precisely. It is a pain in the a$$ though b/c I am constantly tinkering with them. I think I have finally found a solid setting for them and it only took me 3 months. :D

Very trick! I love it. I am considering getting the D/A converter for my Zapco setup.

Proposed setup

Grey Goose...I've seen & Heard the new JL 12W6V...all I can say is insane! My friend has 1 in his Mini Cooper...it sounded clean and hit hard. Totally impressed, I just wish they used the same enclosure size as my current 10W6s. :(

The DA-II is a great edition but like I said it's too sensitive. I am still trying to figure out a way to reduce the hissing heard with almost every CD...I can say, I would have never imagined that CD recordings were so poorly recorded. :dunno:

yeah, I am most likely not going to go with the D/A converter. Thanks for the heads up. Let me know if you have any suggestions on my setup.

1) I had the autobody shop handle the painting aspect of things.

2) The stream of lights on the driver's side is a Zapco DA II digital/analog converter...it basically hightens the digital sound of CD's....it actually is really annoying b/c it picks up everything on the recording...so if the song is recorded with a hiss in the background you'll hear it. However on clean recordings the sound is amazing!!! The knobs on the passenger side is a Zapco SX-SL. It is the master volume control & crossover.

3) It's made of fiberglass

4) I'll try to get you the pics but it's going to be hard b/c my schedule is a bit full.
