    Second NorthStar came in, to replace the OEM one. It is a bit larger (i could only fit so big over on the pass side) than the other NS one, and i was a bit worried, it wouldnt fit. Not so much "fit" in, but, the OEM pos/neg cables are so stubby/short, i was worried they wouldnt reach. Meh, like it was born to be there. Now, fuse the front to cabin run, and start hooking up the amplifer, and dsp, and mids and tweets. Stoked.

    Hmmm, i may have to rethink some things. Tweets/dash drivers. Space, is always a premium. I had no idea, the dash driver area, was soooo roomy.
    Hmmm.. now, something like a 3-1/2" coax, or the like may be to go to here. Plopping a nice 1" dome in there, seems sacrilegious to me with all the room for activities. Hmmmm....
    Hold the phone for a bit, ill work on the driver side wire runs, and think about it.

    Our left to right.
    OEM , the Hertz 87.3's im thinking of using in the dash (coax) and the Scanspeak domes, i was going to use in the dash. But man, all that room.
    20210326_152235.jpg

    Dsp, and Damore board mounted, (will go under pass side seat), test of turn on and such.
    20210326_144507.jpg

    The 408 (dsp) has a remote OUT also. And, it also works (will be used to turn the board on)

    Welp, i went the rhe 3.5.coax. (they are from Hertz for those that care)
    20210327_163739.jpg
    I will use the Scanspeak tweets, some where. Maybe glassed in the A pillars, maybe in a book shelf enclosure im also working on.
    Anyway, amp, with knu 1/0 to 2-4 gauge fuse block, dsp, and all, is in. Powered up, with all 4 drivers wired in. I left the wire dongle for the dsp, so i can hook the laptop up to it, for first go. Setting slopes, cuts, pass bands, and parametric eq. After that, my phone, bluetoothed to it, can handle it from there.
    20210327_162329.jpg


    And, once all playing, and im happy, ill make the piece really live there.

    20210327_162912.jpg

    Cheers, and happy jammin your tunes all...

    I just found an old Bob Dylan recording on cassette, someone left in my 4R on a camping trip 20 years ago! The staging and vocals are IASCA class. And I’m still running stock equipment....,

    I dig Dylan. If i hear "Most of the time" i will bawl lol , for real though.
    I never got into IASCA, It was all DB Drag here. Did win a lot local, and out, and took our class 2 years back to back, in PSYCLONE.. got world Rings back to back in our big rig.

    The most I’ve had was 6 JL W-6 twelves in the Z28. Four isobaric in the hatch and two boxed on the fold down back seats. Dropped the amp down to 1/4 OHM I think??

    Front to cabin run,... fused/in. ;)
    20210328_144841.jpg

    I dig, how awesome, the eyelets i got, fit that cut on the Knu block. Was like it was milled for it...... Or something. :)

    20210328_150214.jpg

    Rock and roll ......... leggo !!!.....
    20210328_152516.jpg


    DSP turned on, as well as the amp.... life is ok :)
    The dsp, is awesome........ so so soooo much control.
    20210328_153437.jpg

    Bummer, the lap top was dead,.. oh ya... thats right !!!
    20210328_152245.jpg 20210328_152253.jpg

    Anyway, i set the high pass on both sets of drivers. Zero eq'ing, or time alignment, ... also, zero adjustment on the amplifer (gain set) and i am already thrilled. Super stoked everything had a green light, and super stoked how things sounded, just flat, plugged in, turning on with ZERO issues.... super stoked. Also, i thought id have to trim the inside of the dash grills, to fit the Hertz coax drivers, but, nope, they fit right back, like OEM.
    Ill charge the laptop, and take it to work, and play with it on site, (work always gets in the way) when i have some breaks..... i love the tuning part. I have a MINI DSP mic, and use the REW software (which is free by the way). Ill set up the mic, at the head rest, run some 20-20k sweeps, check out the graphs, and adjust accordingly to the vehicle harmonics/resonance, and to my liking. And, dick with time alignment....
    Im just super happy, there was zero issues. Also, from having a 700 dollar dsp , to this one, that cost 120 bucks, hell, im stoked. I may buy another, if it keeps doing its thing for a while, and put on my home set up.
    Cheers, and happy adventures, and happy JAMMING all......

    Was able to get the new version of REW (Room EQ Wizard) installed, and up and running, with the Umik microphone. Played around with it, running some pink noise. I need some time to get use to this version. A shit ton going on there. But, should be fun to dick with. (Mic placed at drivers side head rest, pink noise, everything from source, to dsp set to flat)
    20210401_161212.jpg

    And, found a simple, effective way, to up the charge voltage. All new rigs, charge on the low end, gas sipper option i guess. And yeah, that extra volt and change, bugs me. But....
    20210403_122649.jpg 20210403_122701.jpg

    Been rollin this way for about a week, and all is well, and my resting voltage, has never been higher. Cool beans. Cheers all.

    So impressed with the Hertz coaxials, i went larger/bigger. So much room in these dashes. And, sorry for many of you, myself included,.... bigger, is BETTER here. Leggo...
    20210415_135643.jpg 20210415_135652.jpg 20210415_140125.jpg

    I got more Second Skin, cut, and warming up, to lay around them.. then, ill crack the dsp open, and drop the high cut even lower.
    Also, these have adjustable tweets,.. sharp eye, would see im aiming them, at the corresponding A pillar. What im trying to achieve is a broad, or wider stereo affect. If that makes sense to some.
    20210415_141507.jpg

    Ill add the SS, and, then, with the laptop connected to the dsp,.. go for a ride, run my SQ type songs/files. See whats up. Ill get the mic on it, this weekend. I saved files if the previous tweets. Be interesting to see any and all changes. Cheers all.
