YOUR 1ST ever car audio system consisted of what?

Postby evo-STI-k » July 24th, 2008, 3:06 pm

So for those OLD school as well as Newbies!
WHat was your First ever system, i know many of us remember that!

CLOCK FACE pioneer with the chrom handle top mounted easy pull out feature.
commander 10 equalizer
pair of Three way Pioneer 6x9 in some 1/4" home made boxes behind each seat on the pickup
and Each door had a 6.5 Pioneer Co-oxial

after the first 6 months i bought myself a Sound barrier 10" sub and som ehow played it off the equalizer as well.

my 1st car audio was in my room..

- Mitsubishi AM/FM deck, with 4 mechanical push button station presets for FM and 2 for AM.. didn't even have cassette..

- powered off the simplest 12V power supply, bolted on top (step down transformer - bridge rectifier - small capacitor)

- powering 2 6" coaxial sound barrier's and 2 piezo tweeters

had that when i was about 11 - 12 years old!

a few months later, i ended up getting a 40Wrms Realistic eq/amp from my pops to put on it.. i used to real wuk that lil setup :twisted:

I was about 16 and put a pyramid cassette deck and later a five channel used eq. Can't even remember what speakers it was.

My mom's cars were my first platforms. When I just got my licence was a jvc deck, two old style soat speakers (the mid bass dj style), tow old 6" mids from some piece of equipment lying around, and two piezo tweeters. Power was from two eq's one for heights and mids and one for bass, with a home made passiv crossover made from coils and caps.

I was obsessed. :oops: :oops:

I was obsessed with imaging and soundstage. I used to move them little speakers all over the front of the car. They spent the most time in the kick panels though.

This was in 1993 and 1994 eh.

LOL...

MECCA am/fm cassette player..mechanical FF, trim adjusted tuner and 100 W x2...:lol:

One of those silver generic seven band "Graphic Equalizer Amplifier" Boosters with the pair of green LED meters that all them taxi/maxi (s) had. (100W x 4...:lol:). That was a really good quality unit. It actually survived a dead short, just the power wire melted...smoked up the whole cabin. I thought the car woulda burn' down yes. Learned that foil on glass fuse is not a good thing...:oops:

One pair each of Sound Barrier DC-5s and black Piezo-electric tweeters.

a pios 6'' and soundbarrier(sp) 6'' off a toyota deck.. Ended up putting that into a ole door and throwing it onto a wheelbarrow..


Then I spent a total of 6 hrs to build a "bazooca" with a cylinder made from cardboard with a infinity 12'' sub, was 1200maxx watts max I think to go along with those 6'' them.Cutting with a knife, sand paper and a hack saw, left the sub with 10cm space from the back of the enclosure....Sub moved, no sound, pelt away everything and gone and chill..
