             1984 Corvette

Stuart Allum's 1984 Corvette was filled with audio ecstasy... let alone the car itself! Under the hood you'll find two 6volt Optima batteries connected in series. The reason for this is that the standard Optima battery was too big, yet with persistence and knowing how a high-quality power supply is necessary for high-quality sound, Stuart carefully installed and connected these two in the small battery compartment in his Corvette. Streetwire fuse blocks and a one farad Streetwire power cap. round off his power supply (see center of picture below).

 

       
Image Dynamics IDQ-10dvc speakers

In the read hatchback are located two Image Dynamics IDQ-10 dual voice coil 10" subwoofers.

 

 
Zapco Z100C2-SL Amplifiers

These three Zapco amplifiers are competition ready and feature 25w x 2, yet run at 100w x 2 at one ohm! Here's proof that 'cheater amps' can give ya an advantage and avoid competing in the higher power classes where things get very tough fast! Just above the subwoofers are two four-way Streetwire gold plated power distribution blocks. One block is used for the positive power, the other for negative. To protect and add a phat look to his hatchback is an engraved custom made plexiglas cover.

 


       Phoenix Gold EQ230

Underneath the passenger seat is a Phoenix Gold EQ230 third-octave analog equalizer. This unit allows separate equalization adjustments for the right and left channels.

 

 
Image Dynamics IDQ-8 Driver

Located in each footwell were custom made enclosures that hold an Image Dynamics IDQ-8 midbass driver. As i've said before, put as much bass in the front of the vehicle as you can. Located on the bottom of the dash are horn drivers. This helps to make sure the soundstage and imaging are firmly placed up front. Stuart carefully chose his source components by using the Eclipse ECD-510 who's digital output send the signal to his Zapco DAII-SL bitstream digital to analog converter. With careful planning and ingenuity one can have the car and the sound system of their dreams. Looks like Stuart's one happy man!
