Bedroom mods

My bedroom is in major need of a respray, but until I get around to arranging that, I have added some rice mods.

I recently replaced my car's front speakers, and as a joke I decided to try conneting the old ones to my home amp. I found that to my surprise, I got the best sound when conneting the front and rear speakers to the same terminals (it's a squeeze, but the cables fit) rather than using Dolby Pro Logic mode.

Anyway, the result looks like crap, but the sound is quite reasonable. I find that even ordinary rear speakers add tremendous depth to the sound. Most recently, I have installed a Dominator speaker grille.



Other mods I have considered include colour coding my room's door handle - though I found that I cannot justify mods like electric windows, tinted or double glazed glass or anything else too fancy. I'd rather save to move out!

The Dominator speaker cover actually was from Techno Boy's father's (aka the Economan) now deceased '81 Econovan, which eventually got replaced with an AU Forte when it died. The EA front speakers aren't particularly pretty but they do the job - but thanks to the Dominator grille, my room's audio system can have style and power (or something).

But don't despair! Dominator products are readily available from Autobarn. Though actually last time I checked, I couldn't find many...

cool. i couldnt be stuffed looking at how i did it last time... HEH!



note:

at this point, id overdriven this thing until it smoked. for a $40 sub it made a scarry amount of noise! eventually it stopped working, so i removed the dust cap and PUNCHED the sub to free up the burnt out coil. the sub worked again. i drove it again with it making all sorts of shit noises until it wouldnt go at all, then took it out and smashed it around a bit...

best $40 i ever spent.
