Default G'day to all the BHPian members!!! pics included!

Hey there fellow guys and gals.
This is Dr Boom from Sydney Australia, I have much to contribute to your forums, I have been into car audio and electronics since the mid 80's and have done many custom sound system in cars. I have also moved into home theater installations including making custom active subwoofers for cars and home theatre as well. I have included some pictures of my current install (which I like to change every few years)

My audio gear comprises of Pioneer DEH 9600MP
Front speakers, Boston Acoustics RC61 splits, rear are Boston CX93 3 way 6x9 speakers,
Amplifiers are Precision Power Power Class PC450 X 2
Subwoofers are 2 X JBL GTO1202D in a sealed box, 1.3 cu ft per side.
Sound deadening is Dynamat on doors and boot area. I have entered SPL competitions and managed to get a reading of 136.9db in the STREET B class. The amplifiers have unregulated power supplies so they are churning out more power when the car is running, around 70rms x 4 for speakers and about 250rms x 2 for the JBL subwoofers. My system is designed for sound quality but I have tested its potential at the spl event. The 4 gauge power cable has a 120amp circuit breaker from 18 inches of the car battery. I have also upgraded the ground wire to 4 guage from the battery. All work shown is my own including the subwoofer box.

Looking forward to getting active in the forum thread! - Later - Dr Boom!.

Hey guys and gals.

The car is a Ford Laser 2002 model. I am still working on the final installation and will post pictures up in a month or two, hopefully. Glad you like the sound system, it was based on a "stealth" mode since the car is a daily driver. I do take it to shows and when the music is turned up the guys and gals start to gather, and take pictures. I still requre more sound deadening since the bass can rattle the rear view mirror completely off, and it has happened before. I generally only listen to music around 10 - 13 bars, anything more is just really loud and I cannot hear the emergency vehicles such as police, fire brigade or ambulance right behind me...opps!!!
