Yo yo yo yo yo, what is good my friends from the internet!

Once again here I am, Gatlin, your pal from Carphonix, king of car electronics installations, lord and master of all I survey.

Which happens to be my shop!

Anyway, what’s happening today?

Well we’ve got a 2017 Chevy Cruze, and the owner wants a new subwoofer and amplifier installed.

Here’s the material we’re using today:

– JL Audio RD500
– JL Audio RDC1 bass control knob
– Flo Surge True Spec 4 AWG amplifier wiring kit
– Axxess AX-ALOC600 2 channel line level converter
– A single 12” woofer in a quarter slot box

I’m going to walk you through the process here, from start to finish.

This is a nice and spicy install, which I think you’ll enjoy.

We run into a few problems along the way too, which you’ll see as well – but it’s nothing we can’t handle.

Anyway why are you still reading?

Why am I still writing?

Good morning, good day, good evening, whatever time it is where you are in the world, I hope it’s a good one!

It’s me, Gatlin from Carphonix, your one-stop shop for all your car and truck audio installation needs.

So what’s the good word from us?

It’s the Carphonix SLAM VAN.

We bought this silly thing a few weeks ago, and yeah it’s not the nicest looking van in the entire world, but hey – it’s what we got!

Why do we got it?

It’s not a customer project.

No no no, it’s a Carphonix in house project.

This van wasn’t cheap.

Yeah it’s beat up, old, and pretty ugly, but you’d be amazed at how expensive these things can get.

It’s probably because they’re just so darn useful if you’re a contractor or a plumber or something.

But hey, all that room that would be jam-packed with plungers and power tools is instead going to be stuffed with the most beastly sound system you’ve ever heard!

This bad boy needs A LOT of work, not just with the electronics but with the body, the paint – just about everything.

Betcha didn’t know your pal Gatlin knew how to do body work, did ya?

So what are we putting in it?

A wall of woofers, a clean 2-channel setup in the front, we’ve got lots of ideas about what to do with this thing.

Watch the video below to find out more.

What NOT To Do With Your Car Electronics.

Top of the mornin’ to all y’all, it’s your pal Gatlin here from Carphonix – the place to be for all your car electronics installs and upgrades.

This week, we’ve got a 2000 Honda Civic we’re playing with, and hoo boy is this thing a nightmare.

At some point, it had Lamborghini doors, which were both then removed.

The owner painted the inside nicely, but he also completely tore it apart and modified it like crazy.

Some of the mods are cool – or at least they were back in the mid-2000’s when it was originally done.

And despite all the horrendous wiring, it’s actually fared pretty well for the most part.

But because of those Lamborghini doors, they had to rewire the whole thing and send some electronics behind the fender.

We’re also pulling the alarm system out and replacing it.

When you see us taking this thing apart, you’ll get a peek into just about everything you should NOT do with your car electronics.

Watch the video below, and you’ll see what I mean.

In the end, we’ve got a huge pile of old, beat up, poorly wired electronics, but a good sounding car!

In particular, take a look at the video at 3:30 (the original wiring), and compare it with 18:30 (our wiring) to see the Carphonix difference!

What is it that is up my friends and fellow YouTube citizens, it’s Gatlin here from Carphonix in beautiful London Ontario.

It’s been a little while since we made a video, but there have been some changes at the shop which took up a lot of my time.

But now we’re back in the swing of things.

Today we’ve got a 2008 Mitsubishi Eclipse.

If you’re familiar with these cars, you’ll know about the HORRIBLE blindspot in these things.

And that ain’t no good.

So today we’re going to be installing a back up cam.

As you’ll see, he’s already got an aftermarket radio installed.

We need to do an update on that bad boy, but it’s going to be the screen for the cam.

We’re installing an Echomaster pro lip mount camera.

Because of the way the Eclipse is made, it just makes the most sense for us to use one of these.

You’ll see the process of how we install a dash cam, and just how much bloody work it takes to git’r done.

Go ahead, check out the video below.
