Finally decided to start a build thread, it's been a long time in the making and it's time to document. :D

Every modification was done by my father (a professional fabricator) and myself. I am proud to say it has never been to a shop other than my own.
I'm a female participating in a man's hobby but hopefully my car speaks for itself. :)

When the trunk is open and the doors/windows are closed, the box/ports invert and the interior
of the car becomes the box. 3000 W-rms going to the two 15" Mmats Pro Audio subwoofers.

menendez1293 06-04-2013 12:17 PM

Saw your Camaro down at the 2nd Anual Sunshine State rally definitely a One of a Kind with all the custom built parts it has on it.

Modern07 06-04-2013 01:03 PM

Yeah saw your car at SSCR in March too - it's badass...and also the reason why I came home from the rally and started researching stereo upgrades haha! :lol:

Haha! Stereos get addicting, huh? I initially got 12" subs because numerous audio professionals said 15" could not be done in a 5th Gen Camaro. Which of course just made me want to prove them wrong haha!
