Ripped out the shelf, trunk's lining, spare tire, back seats, and side panels.



All to install some damn 6x9s in the back seat walls.

07 Tiburon GT Limited
V6 5-speed



Also dropped my subs in there today.



Getting power to the amp was a ****ing *****... had to take off the front driver's tire, take out the moulding around it. Ended up snapping 3 screws because they're plastic ****, and cracked the moulding because one screw was stripped and wouldn't come out. Then I had to feed some heavy gauge wire through a rubber grommet and try to fish it out on the other side in the cab. However, the grommet has a 90* elbow in it, ****ing bull****... not to mention it came out basically right behind the tach, so it was awkward as **** to try fishing it out from that side. had to kneel on the ground, then twist to the point where my elbow was pretty much behind the clutch and the back of my shoulder was on the floormat. probably took me about 45 minutes just to get it through the grommet alone.
Now I just need to make a set of RCA cables to go from the head unit to the amp.

mmm... I wish I could straight pipe my car without needing a custom gas tank.
Straight pipe and true dual exhaust, instead of just a Y-pipe... that'd be the sex right there.

But if your truck has back seats, throw like three 8 inchers under it, in shallow ported enclosures. They won't pump quite as hard as two 12s, but I'm fairly certain you'd be able to at least drown out the rumble of your pipes.

Why the hell would I need to to that? Cant talk on the phone unless its at idle or just above. I made my mind up some time back after tuning a friends system. A single 12 in a very solid box (cant decide if i want sealed or ported) will make me happy.

Aside from tuning someone elses ****, Ive been out & away from car audio for years. Gonna take me a couple weeks worth of reading to fresh'n up on everything new.

I'm not going to pretend like I know a whole lot about audio, but I'm very happy with my sealed boxes.

Then again, a lot of people on the Tiburon forum I've been visiting are really hating on Xplöd. I don't find them as bad as they're all saying, but I've not really been around too many people with audio setups like I have. The only other car in this town with anything like this has two 8" HD (lowest-tier Scosche) subs just tied into his 6x9s.

I've always been interested in cars, but my previous vehicles were nothing to really brag about, so I didn't put too much into them. I did cheap-o pimp my truck back in '06 though... it was a '88 Nissan 4x4 King Cab D21. Had a custom bumper made out of 2 inch steel tubing (the bumper was more sturdy than the actual frame of the truck), put underglow in it (basically trailer brake lights that I bolted to the underside), a $200 deck, a small speaker set with two 6 inch "subs" and 2 teeters in one enclosure and there were LEDs that lit up around the "subs", and I put a CPU fan on the dash to blow air because the truck's fan wouldn't blow anything into the cab. I ****in loved that truck, even if it had like 750,000 kms on it.

But now that I got a vehicle that's actually half decent, I'm starting to really get into it. I've got a list of **** that I want to drop into it, mostly starting with visuals as opposed to performance to start:

Code:
Change all Hyundai emblems to Batman logo Smokey tail-lights New audio system with touch-screen GPS nav screen? Ashtray buttons - probably 4 or 5 switches? Blue Underglow LEDs = 1st slot ashtray Bass strobe LEDs = 3rd slot ashtray Change red door lights to blue LEDs Change yellow cabin lights to blue LEDs HID or Angel Eyes Fix thermometer relocate 4-way flasher button (replace with something awesome?) New pedals License plate border Straight pipe? Foot lights? = 2nd slot ashtray Engine accent LEDs (under the silver covers on the main panel) = 5th slot ashtray, or under the hood Sub and amp LED accents = 4th slot ashtray Gill lights as signal lights Deck: Double DIN module - Sony XAV601BT reciever? Deck = $600 6x9s = $75x2 Subs = $120x2 Amp = $100 Sub-box= $120 Audio Total = $1210
So yeah, that's basically going to be where the vast majority of my excess income disappears to for the next while.

But you and I sometimes talk on Face****... granted, not whole conversations or anything, but y'know what I mean
As for my absence from KOT, my girlfriend at the time of my disappearance started to get all crazy and be like "y u no gimme attention?" and then I pretty much disappeared from everything online except Face****.

If your happy can't complain about the audio. I'm thinking about doing my audio up again.
I'm thinking about doing it stupid since i've got some extra cash, but not sure if i really want to go big. I like my 1 10" and i've got it banging hard. Eh i'll let you know either way i need to build a new enclosure.

I gotta sell my Classic RT Mag with Emag lowers now. Bought a 1911 that wasnt planned for, but it was worth it.


Random idea: KOT on facebook? IT would mean I (we) wouldnt have to come around here much if at all. Plus I think we all are on FB.

Wrote this on Friday with intentions of posting in here, but then something came up instead:

Quote:
I'm 24, and I've been in love with this one girl for the past 5 years. I know that she likes me as well. However, I live too far away from her (a 3 hour drive) for anything to really happen between us.
At the beginning of the year, we sort of had something going, but I told her that I respected her too much to sleep with her unless we were actually dating. She told me that was fine, and that she needed time to figure **** out, but that I was the only person she could see herself with, both in a relationship and in bed. I made the drive down to see her every weekend for two months straight, most times only to hang out with her for a few hours before driving back home. Never expecting to get laid, but only to be with her. I'd bring her flowers, take her out for dinner, and just generally treat her nice.
One day, she texts me saying she can't do this. I asked her why not, and she told me that she had a three-sum the night before, with two other girls. This hurt me, especially because she had told me that I was the only one she could see herself in bed with. Basically, we fought the whole day via text messaging about what she said to me and everything.
The next day, I thought "well, it was only girls... maybe I'll give her another chance." So I told her how I felt, that if she ever wanted anything to happen between us, that we should start dating right then and there. A couple hours later, she replied, saying she ****ed up again, because the night before, she had slept with a guy she knew (so one night was the three-sum, the next night was the guy).
I ****ing lost it on her. She then tells me that she didn't want a boyfriend during summer, and that she'd maybe want to date me in October or something (it's May when she tells me this).
I tell her that I can't handle being strung along like that, and that if she wants to be with me, then she'd have to come to me, because I was tired of chasing her.
Two days later, she tells me she started dating this guy she just met. I get so pissed off that I fight a brick wall simply to feel physical pain as opposed to emotional pain. For the next week, she texts me every day, just to tell me that she misses me. Continues to date this guy for a little over a month (Mid-May til the end of June), then he dumps her out of the blue.
She texts me to tell me this, and how she's a total emotional wreck, and that I was the only guy who's ever treated her nicely. So I ask her "If that's the case, then why wouldn't you date me?" and she replies with "because you wouldn't **** me. I like sex too much"
Three days later, she tells me she has a new boyfriend. Not one that she cares about or anything, but just someone who'll **** her every night. She dates this guy for 2 and a half weeks (til Mid-July) and then she dumps him because he's starting to treat her like an actual girlfriend. She tells me she left him because the things he started doing reminded her of the things I would do for her. She also tells me that she misses me and wants to hang out with me that night.
In my mind, I'm thinking that this is her starting to hint that she wants to finally date me. So I make the three hour drive in to see her, and I text her to make sure that she's actually home. She texts back that she's at her ex's place (the first one, not the recent one) and that she changed her mind about wanting to see me. I raged in the middle of a convenience store, and was escorted out by Security, get in my car and drive home.
A couple minutes after I get home, she texts me saying how stupid she was for thinking that her ex would take her back, and that she wishes I was there to comfort her in person.
We don't talk for about 2 weeks following that, and then she texts me saying that she has a new boyfriend, but doesn't think it'll last long. I tell her "For someone who didn't want a boyfriend over summer, you're sure as **** not sticking to that. On top of that, you're rubbing it in my face as well." She replies saying "Doesn't that make you want me more? If you had a girlfriend, I'd be thinking 'what's she got that I don't?' and I'd want you more." I tell her that I'm the opposite, and that it pisses me off whenever I hear about her dating someone, and that it makes me feel like there's clearly someone she'd rather be with. No reply.
Two weeks ago, she texted me saying that her boyfriend cheated on her with her best friend, and that she's feeling incredibly vulnerable and wants to see me. I tell her to deal with it on her own, because I'm tired of her bull-**** drama. She then replies with "I just told you I want to **** you. Right now." I tell her that I refuse, because I'm still sticking to my principles of not sleeping with her unless we're dating. She goes ballistic, saying how she needs my cock, and that she'd let me do anything I want to her. I told her that what I want to do to her is date her. She says she can't do that, and that she just wants sex from me.
Every day, for two weeks straight, she sends me the same **** about how much she needs me to **** her, and that she'd even get two of her female friends to join if that was what it took to get me in bed with her. However, I continue to say "only if we're dating."
Yesterday, we're just casually talking about generic ****, and I ask "hey, wanna chill tomorrow? maybe watch a movie, and just hang out? clothing stays on" and she says sure.
Gets to today, I text her to find out if she still wants to hang, and she replies saying she's drunk. At 11 am. Guess I'm not hanging with her tonight.

Why do I have to be in love with a ****, and why do my morals stop me from ****ing the **** out of her and just moving on?
