Excursion Stereo Build Thread

I made a thread on a local audio forum (its FloridaSPL Car Audio Forum if any of you guys are interested in a real audio forum and are in Florida or the SE USA) a while back and figured Id make one here.

This build is going slow as Im trying to get money together for it all, but as always, it will eventually be done.

Here is the truck. 2000 Excursion. 7.3, lift, 38x15.5x20" Toyos, shaved rear end (tail lights, bumper, etc), 2005 front grill.


First order of business was a new radio. Bought this and ran it for a while, but swapped out to the Pioneer DEH-80PRS. I needed the control of running full 3-way active for what I wanted to do.


Then this thing needed to be modified. It was the stock seat controls. Sticks out way too far for what Im planning. Has to go. As it is stock:


Cut down and wrapped that hole.


Fiberglassed it from the back. Just needs to be smoothed out and painted.

Now for the fun part. This was what was in each door. Old Bostons. Clearly wont cut it. I need it LOUD!


Here is the mock up of one of the front doors.


This is the final product. The top piece is painted black and is all shiny and cleared just like the white on the door.


Here is the finish up close. Looks great in person.


Now you can see why that seat control had to be cut. Pretty tricky fitting 1 15, 2 12s, and 3 tweeters in a door. Especially when some of the speakers have a mounting dept of 5" and weigh around 17lbs each.


I have a box in working on for the back of the truck that I need to take pics of. It is a bandpass box for 8 12" subwoofers. The 3rd row seat came out and this box is going right behind it, and will be from the floor to the ceiling, sealed off with the port firing foward. Should be ok for some cheap subs in the back when its all said and done.

Progress will be slow, but Ill keep it up to date if anyone wants to see the build.

The rear was shaved when I bought the truck. Here was a pic the day I got it.

Do continue... those door panels are SICK!!! A little overkill, but SICK nonetheless!

I do love overkill though...
