    Latest mods and ICE update

    Some of you may have noticed in the other Zaffie ICE section that I have updated the subs in the big blue bus.

    I used to have a Rockford Fosgate amp running a single 12" Kicker square sub but it just wasn't producing the results I was after.

    I took some advice from my local supplier, Swad ICE and I bought two 10" Kicker squares and a mighty Alpine MRD1005 mono block amp.




    They have now been put into the box



    and fitted into the bus. I just need to actually do a proper set up of the system to make sure its running at its best.

    Big Big BIG thanks must go to Keif for help with fitting the new 4 gauge amp cable. It was a right royal pain in ar*e and not something I want to attempt again in a hurry!! Cheers Keif

    For those thinking the standard battery would never cope, your quite right so I have upgraded to an Optima Yellow Top battery. Only problem is I'm not sure the stainless cover will fit now

    Talking of shiney bits, I also bought these recently, top hat and crossover pipe. (excuse the dirty pipes!)



    Big Big BIG thanks must go to Glenn Yale for these, he's an absolutely top bloke and he even fitted them for me in the service station car park. Cheers Glenn

    Oh, and one more thing....a new exhaust care of Exhaust UK in sheffield. Its a cat back system with a mild sports box. It makes a nice rumble but nothing too over the top or offensice to the neighbours!!




    Few more mods lined up, I have the TC switch and loom to fit, delocked drivers door handle and a special bit of modding to the grill. Watch this space

    Cool, my ears are hurting just looking at those speakers.

    Exhaust looks like the trim i put on mine a while back, if you don't mind me asking, how much was it?

    Sorry to jump on your thread m8 but i want to ask a question which sort of relates to what you are doing. I currently have a 200w sub tube that is pre-amped fed by a jvc 50wx4 head unit. Now the head unit is fine (until I can afford my DVD motorized screen head unit) and need to upgrade my subs and an amp. I want to still be able to use the two back seats and keep the subs in the car so I was thinking of using a style of box that will take a 10" sub in it but it still fits between the incline of the back seats and the boot door. I was thinking of mounting two boxes with a single 10" sub in each with an amp in between on a board covered in carpet that matches the trim of the car (so that if I need to take it out I can in one go).

    Anyhow what do you think.

    It was actually the Mrs idea to swap from one sub to two I said I wasn't happy with the sound the single was producing and she said 'would it sound better with two'

    Next thing she saw was the dust as I ran to my local supplier!

    Also, (and how sh*t is this), I've just noted that the carpet on the floor of the room you took the photo's in is the same as the carpet in my bedroom.
