      so i get into work today and i look at the schedule book and i see i got a job to look at. customer states that his sub isn't working right. so i fiqure it must be something stupid and simple. well i bring the car in and the deck isn't even installed correctly and i notice a bunch of wires running through the middle of the car. so next thing i pop the trunk... i'll let the pics speak for them selves

      please dear god tell me that was a joke, or you shot the guy that brought that to the shop

      Cool enclosure. I would have carpeted the outside of it though. A bit of silicone to seal the wires would be nice too.

      it wasn't no joke.. when the kid and his father came in to pick up the car i was at a loss for words so to speak. i was just like . hey if you want rip everything out of the car and i'll bench test all the gear and if everything checks out you can pay us too professionally install it. so the kids like so whats the charge today? im like no charge man cause after i saw the trunk i didn't even want to touch the car

      ROFL!

      That has to be one of the ugliest, most unsafe installs ive seen. Its one thing to have cheap equipment, but i bet that a $10 plywood enclosure and some proper instal would make that system sound 100% better.

      WOW...i cant say much after seeing that thing. i use to work at a shop in LB cali. and i have seen some micky mouse/ ghettofied shiitttt. now it looks like someone went to their local swapmeet bought a $10 amp, $5 sub, cut down the old tree in there back yard and made themselves a "custom" enclosure. ...... i wanna throw up now

    12. 06-07-2005 09:04 PM #12
      Dude that has got to be a joke or something. I would have slapped the guy just on pricipal alone. just imagine the work put into carving up that tree and think of how long it takes to make a cheap box. Seriously this guy couldn't think of anything better to use besides a tree.

    13. 06-07-2005 09:28 PM #13
      is that enclosure a tree trunk?

      Hee hee! Part of the fun of this industry is seeing crap like that. Many many times have I opened a trunk, pulled a radio, or looked under a dash and just stood there going " WTF??? ". I have a "wall of shame" in the shop where we have some of the choicest work hanging. Scarily enough, some of it came from other "shops" that have a decent reputation.... if the customer only knew half of the stuff that I find in their cars..... yikes.

      What rolls down stairs alone or in pairs
      Rolls over your neighbor's dog?
      What's great for a snack and fits on your back?
      It's Log, Log, Log!

      It's Log, Log, it's big, it's heavy, it's wood.
      It's Log, Log, it's better than bad, it's good!
      Everyone wants a log! You're gonna love it, Log!
      Come on and get your log! Everyone needs a Log!"

      yeah i hear Max Power makes good ****! lmao, someone tell him the box doesnt have to be round just because the sub is round. What is that rolling around in your trunk? Oh that? Its my logwoofer. Yeah.... All he needs now is a square tree and some kicker comps!!!

    23. 06-09-2005 11:28 AM #23
      These pics are just begging for some captions.

      Haha, the guy has some bass in the trunk. No, literally, in the trunk

      His woofer's bite is worse than its bark.

      you guys never had a getto car? my 87 bonneville has duct tapes structural supports and leaked everything. this kid had tunes and thump...leave him alone

      everyone started somewhere.

      After a bad day though, when stuff like that pulls up to my shop, it always makes my day so much better. It's always funny to see what happens when "a friend installed it"

    28. 06-10-2005 10:15 AM #28
      waaahhahaa that is too good!

      I once saw an amp plugged into the lighter socket, but this install really takes the cake!


    29. 06-10-2005 10:37 AM #29
      I've never heard of those subs b4.


      this is the only Max Power I know!


      "maaaaaaaaaax power, its the name, the name you want to toooouuuuuuch, but you musn't touch..."

      Man people do some strange things to their cars!

      PPL Stop messaging me about the BBS Steering wheel. if you read the threads, it sold over 2 yrs ago.

      Looking for an aircooled beetle or bus, type 1 or 2, running engine, but cosmetic condition is unimportant. email simonh@picsbysimon.com if you have one for sale.

      I'm surprised that car didn't catch fire. That's a neat idea for a sub box, but what happens when you take a turn too hard?

      Thanks alot, now I have that damn Ren and Stimpy song in my head too!

      Wonder if there is enough slack in the wires to the amp, to allow it to fly off the back seat and wack the driver in the head real good, when he comes to a fast stop.


    33. 06-10-2005 09:53 PM #33
      they call it mobile bass, cause when you take a turn the bass in the trunk moves

      but I'm sure everyone has been there or almost
      back in the day I helped put a few buddies ghetto fabulous systems in

      folks from montrealracing.com are laughing their asses off right now
