Oh man Dragonball z, love it! Got ever EP and movie ever made.

I'll hook up the sub for ya! :)


I love fixing 360's, it's so easy and people just give them away all the time. I keep hoping someone will give me another PS3 with the YLOD error so I can have a PS3 for my guest bedroom.

Nerd time: Who's the best bad guy in DBZ? I'm sticking to my guns with Vegta. Comes to earth, starts killing people and has Napa as a side kick.

Cbass38 12-12-2012 11:17 AM

you are my new best friend haha.
i knew stereos back in the day,but i havent messed w/ it much. i used to build alot of fiberglass boxes and all that good stuff.
i have all the dbz series, and dragonball gt on my computer,along with all the movies. i still watch that shit all the time.
it depends,if you go from the tv series,its vegeta or frieze. " the frieze saga was the best shit ever!"
but if you add in movies,brolly was straight hardcore badass nagry mofo.

i bought a ps3 just to play moto gp 11 lol.
i have two 360s just for parts,and two good working ones.along with a wii. and the kinect is awesome too!

Cbass38 12-12-2012 11:28 AM

Yeah just TV, movies, you are right. Brolly is a MONSTER. I always wished they'd make a spin off of just his life. I never liked GT much. Different animation team, director, story just rushed too fast.. I got over it by the end with Omega Shenron, just got out of hand with him. I love old Dragonball, and miss the power pole.. They should of kept that throughout DBZ's story.

Fiberglass you say.. Well I can build the stereos/boxes, but I can't fiberglass very well.. Maybe we can come up with some custom boxes sometime or something.

I replaced the glass in a 3g but nothing past that.. I heard the 5 is a BITCH to work on.

Cbass38 12-12-2012 11:39 AM

ya gt was weak,but i had to have them just cause im a nerd and like to have complete series of shit.
i have 2 3gs i need to fix,dont really need to but i could i guess.

i learned to glass when i got into painting,now i can do badass paint and fiberglass stuff.. i dont trust anyone to do any work so i learned to do it all.
ya we def. could build some boxes..i need to do something about my stock subs shittiness. i just have no idea which route to go with it.

Totally agree, I have DB/DBZ/GT and all the movies.. I've seen all of DBZ at least 4 times now. Talk about a waste of time growing up.

Audio is my thing... So lets figure it out. :)

1. What amp do you have now and do you want to keep it?
2. How much bass do you want? Do you want to hear it, or feel it?
3. Do you want your seats to fold up and down?
4. Do you want your amps under the Driver/Pass seat, or behind the rear seats (determines how big of a box you can build)
5. What is your budget for all this?

uhm obviously! well I'm not sure i may not do the mid night premier this time, but i will this weekend

Aw9d 12-12-2012 12:10 PM

Awesome.. My wife refuses to see it with my but my brother is a huge LOTR fan (He lives in New Zealand where all of it was shot. He's sent me some cool pic's of the movie sets while they were shooting there).

Cbass38 12-12-2012 12:16 PM

i am totally stock 6disc jbl system with the stock sub
so its a clean slate.
i did a alpine type x in my x's muffstang with a jl 1000 pushing it, and it was retarded bass.
i dont need anything crazy,just a 10 or so. i listen to mostly rock..id want the amp behind the rear seats.i dont use the storage anyways. budget wise,i can make anythin happen when i find something i want lol.plus race season is over for a while so i dont gotta blow a grand a month on tires and fuel for a while

Aw9d 12-12-2012 12:25 PM

Sounds good. The JBL system sucks ass, the sub is a joke lol..

Lots of options for you then. Just know if you don't want to cut into the stock harness the adapter is over a $100 due to the 'jbl' awesomeness.

You won't find anything that can match a Type-x with a 1000 watts going to it that will fit behind the rear seats.. Best you can get is a JL W13 shallow and build a custom box for it.. That sub is stupid expensive. I have a Alpine Type-R and am very happy with it. The 10 can fit in a .50ft box which is nothing. I'd suggest at least .70 for that 10inch sub.

When you are ready let me know and we'll sit down and go over options.

Cbass38 12-12-2012 12:57 PM

right on man. id appreciate the help.
i dont mind cutting into a harness, and i dont expect anything like what the type x was. it was a monster.
whered u get the headlight projector stuff? i have a spare set of stock headlights i wanna fuck with

I got mine off of Patrick locally as he upgraded.

But you can order it from http://www.theretrofitsource.com/

I got the Mini's that plug and play, no cutting, SUPER easy install.
