I know the feeling well Chance. I'm right in the middle of my interior rebuild myself. The cab of my truck is gutted. However it's time to leave for the summer.
The temps around here get into the 115 range almost every day during the summer. So my room mate and I get out of town.
Like you I'm not after SPL or a lot of "thump." I just want a good sounding system. Since my grandkids no longer fit in the jump seats,
I've decided to remove them and build a box to house two 10" subs. I've decided to go with an all Infinity set up.
I'm using Infinity reference components in the doors, backed up by two 10" Infinity kappa subs in the box.
I wanted to make sure the cab up to the job and I hated to tinny echo and noise level in the stock cab.
So for the last 4 months I've been working on sound deadening. I had Dynamat installed but it still wasn't quiet enough for me.
So I stripped it all out, talk about a PITA, and now I'm putting in some stuff from an outfit called "Second Skin Audio."
If this stuff is anywhere near as good as some guys say it is I'll be happy. So far I've done the doors and roof.
It has helped, but not as much as I had hoped for. I'm hoping when the floor/firewall/back wall are finished I'll get the results I'm looking for.
Enyoy your summer.
Don't work to hard.
