This page is dedicated to a car many would consider to large to drive. While I admit it is a gas hog, driving big cars has many advantages, one bei... Show moreng able to fit a great amount of audio equipment into the car and still have room for other things.
Page one includes a description of some of the components installed in my car, a 1971 Oldsmobile Delta 88. The system itself is in a state of constant upgrades, so the list below is due to change at any given time. Also, for those of you who were wondering- yes, it is completely self-installed.
Page two is the Deer Museum, a graphic documentation of what happens when a 4500 pound automobile colides with a 140 pound deer at a speed of 45 mph. For those with weak stomachs, there will be pictures, so consider this a warning!
Page one is described below...
Sony XRC-7220 w/ 10 disc CD changer
none (not yet, anyway)
Boss AVA-3200 3 1/2" (2)
MTX Thunder 5000 6 1/2" components
MTX Thunder 5000 10" (3)
MTX Thunder 240
MTX Road Thunder 2120
MTX Road Thunder 2200X
Optima, Lightning Audio
WIRE & INTERCONNECT
Photos of the actual install coming soon.
Here are a few pics of my car. For obvious reasons, many refer to it as "The Beast." For those of you who don't like big, old, ugly cars, the picture in the middle pretty much says everything.
This is my trunk's current setup. The spare tire is located behind the sub boxes, which are pressure-fit and are easy to remove. The amp racks are located on the sides and hold both amplifiers and all of the wiring components. I am currently rebuilding both racks and should be finished with them soon.
Old left amp rack holds MTX 240, crossovers, cooling fan, and fuse blocks. New rack will contain much of the same with a few new add-ons.
Old right amp rack holds MTX 2200X, lightning cap, cooling fan, and distribution blocks. New contains the same with an added tool kit.
As I mentioned earlier, this system is never quite complete and is always being upgraded. Plans for the future include another amp, more subs, and a redesigned front stage. Feel free to return so you won't miss any updates.
Thanks for looking at my page!
The new amp racks are almost completed! Pictures will be posted soon. Show Less
Welcome to the Deer Museum!
Included on this page are the gorry details of what happens to an automobile when a deer decides to go for a morning stroll and... Show more doesnt use the "deer x-ing" zone.
I was on my way to work one morning, travelling at the liesurely pace of 45 mph. All of a sudden, BAM!!! A large, 140 pound mule deer I've affectionately named Bambi literally jumped into the side of my car. While my passenger and i escaped with nothing more then enlarged eyes and a "holy sh*t" expression glued to our faces, "The Beast" sustained injuries to the left fender and the windshield. The deer, needless to say, was quite dead, and is now residing in our freezer, cut up into steaks and individually wrapped.
Later investigations showed the deer attempted to jump over my car and didnt quite make it, hence the side damage and the absence of frontal damage to the car.(i.e. bumper, grille, hood, etc.) After the initial side impact, the deer spun upwards and over into my windshield. The force of the windshield impact made the deer launch into the air, do several summersaults, and clear the rest of my car before slamming into the middle of the road.
It was a rather exciting experience, but one which was not enjoyable and definately one I would not like to go through again. Well enough chat and on to the pictures......
Here you can see the fender damage and a general idea of the windshield damage. If you look closely, you will also notice a red stain on the upper corner of the door. Wonder what that could be....
I KILLED BAMBI!!!
Thank you for viewing the Deer Museum. Just goes to show anything can happen, and it pays to drive big, huge cars like mine. Any lesser auto would surly be totalled by such a collision. Show Less
