Time to take a break from working on the inside JBL stuff and play around with the JBL mobile audio for a bit.
I've been collecting JBL car audio components to go into a '96 T-Bird and finally have all the stuff. To be sure, it won't be studio quality, but I'm hoping for pretty good car stereo. I've attached a few pics showing the dry-run setup, (powered by cables run to the car battery in this setup). All the stuff is new, but I still wanted to hook everything up to be sure I've got everything straight before installing it. Little cube speakers made when I worked at Hard Truckers are temporarily hooked up, as is a 12" JBL for a test sub. (Even these actually sounded pretty good.)
The amps are JBL P180.2 and P80.4, which give me 360 watts rms for the 10" JBL W10GTI and 40 watts for each of the four 5"x7" JBLs I've got ready, (hopefully I'll be able to get some of those outrageous new JBL 6.5" components someday). And I was able to track down a still new JBL GTE422 EQ, with 22 bands on the 1/2 octave when configured for stereo! Both amps have hi/lo pass crossover adjustable 50-320 hz. The head unit is just a cheap JVC until I decide on a permanent one. Suggestions anyone? I've heard good things about Alpine. And XM capability would be nice!
That W10GTI is a differential-drive, has an Xmax of 17.78 mm, and is essentially flat to below 30 hz in a 1.75 cu.ft. ported box! All I have yet to do is build the sub box and install the stuff in the car.
Anyway, 'just wanted to show what I've been throwing together for fun. The big stuff inside is still my true love, but hey, we all have to have some outside fun too... BTW, that Lincoln in the background came with a factory JBL Premium system, and is still the best factory audio I've heard to date!
