Post Low Budget Crew Cab Sub install >>>

Hey guys so I wanted subs in my truck. Had no money but had older parts and equipment.

Used:
Sony xplod crappy 11 year old deck

1 Kenwood KFC-3003 4 Ohm 600wt peak sub.

and a Jensen 500wt (on 2ch setting) amp

The sub is 7 years old, and amp is 10 lol
I used a House speaker box with tweets (unhooked) and a Dummy sub.
Cuz its a sealed box. I cut it down to 6" with a open backside.
But None of this cost me a penny.

wait....i paid 40 for the amp my bad.

and im setting up like 4 Tweets in the front of the truck, with Rear floor speakers. when i do my rear air setup.

Amp is on a switch.

Why is your amp on a switch? Tap that thing, could have saved 99 cents. Wow that's low budget, how much did that cost you total? Was everything given to you

cuz its off of a aux hot. what do you mean tap it? and 99 cents for what? lol

TOtal:

I found the sub box at a thrift store for $3 bucks.
found the amp at a garage sale for $40
found the deck in a car we bought (convinced my mom to let me use it)
found the sub in my brothers bus (dont tell him lol)
Found the A/V cable in my sisters car. haha.
And i had wire and the L brackets

just had to buy self tappers from Harbor freight which ive used in other places like my strobes. which was $9 bucks.

sooo
Out of pocket expense was around $53 bucks.

Tap the red wire to your head unit that cuts it on when you turn your truck on. Splice that into your amp cut on wire, 99 cents is about the cost of that switch you have there, I like your enginuity but damn homie, come on down to so cal and I will help that stereo out some bro. Your not running factory cab speakers still are you?

hahah, Nah its actually a $5 switch. But I want it on a switch. Cuz have to feed my speakers thru Fronts so the bass doesnt over welm the tweets and stock rears.

I dont have the Cash to come out there bro, Like i said...THis is LOW budget. The whole truck is low budget built on no money but trying to customize to make it my own.

When i get the cash, THere will be another Revival of the whole truck....you just watch.
