Congrats on the new ride. I also had a 2008 WK1 that I traded in for a 2017 WK2. The difference between the two, luxury, comfort, and tech wise were night and day. I loved my WK1, but after testing the WK2 I was sold. The WK1 felt like an old school muscle car compared the the WK2 which felt like a modern performance luxury ride.

Also, be careful with those valve stem covers. I never tried them, but I know a lot of WK1 guys had some problems with them. Since they are different metals than the valve stems, they’d corrode and seize on the stems. Removing them would mess up the TPMS sensors. A little anti-seize lube should do the trick

Niice!! It’s. F’n Disease i swear!
That is Some Seriously Sexxy Shit mann Kudos’ i like the Buried built in and box you made , Totally custom (you did or chop did ) and prolly a Fun hair ripping out project!
How’s it sound? I love the Hertz Audio Component’s , Ima say it’s Safe to say you Don’t Din’t have Hk Audio..Nor
:sneaky: a Spare anymoeeeee!
it was a must for me as the Hi’s are tremendous for a Stock Oe system and have no problem w the 19 Whatevea Speakers Keeping up w and complementing A 12’Powerswedge w a w6 and a Kenwood 600 amp w proper tuning it’s Pretty Damn Spot on!Loud Loud Crystal clear Hi’s , Mid’sAre Ok(keep the mid on eq at 6, treble at 2-3) and of course Bass is thumping from that setup!
I Know for sure if i din’t have the Hk i’d be Replacing all interiors and adding amps and sh*t! Talk to me about all those Gain Control’s at ur seat like 007 has , wtf why wat for ea one doo?
The Vette Had Upg’d Bose think i paid $1995 for it lmaoo , Car had 270 miles on it and Went strait to stereoo chop and spent 2.5 weeks there. Was a lil bit of a Night mare that lasted 2-3 mo’s blowing tweeters and Tuning due to over complication by Stereo w all new fancy Sh*t that well simply put was over complicated.. Finally 2 Engineer’s from Jl Audio came out , Plugged in laptop’s and micrometers and Got her to some Next Levl shit :)
My M5 i paid $3700 for B+W and It Works but pretty much Suxx the A$$$$ but i would nvr even think about touching that Car w Some 226 Computers that all talk w ea other!
F That!!

To Update the Build > Got Lazzzy yeat was a rainy day here so chilled couch w my Gf all day lol Have to clean up stuffs from install , put panels back on and Muzaac sud be done.. then gonna attemp the Mhf Halo upg after that Mhf Rear Fog light kit. Bt Catch can came in yest (Might as well try that) while im in there Strut tower bar’ll get thrown in! I’m expect the Oe Front Led Fog lights to show today , So i wanna Have all this Sh*t done by Sunday eve So Monday / Tues i can get her to The Mechanic for the Brakes , susp , drop.

I built the box myself piece by piece
Makes your hair feel like it's jumping so I'd say it's hair raising 😄





The switch is for my AL Priority laser jammer,









the momentary button is for the rear camera squirter
The knobs are level controls for the amps.
Tweeters, Front Speakers, Rear Speakers, Under seat Subs, Rear Subs,

I can dial in the sound perfectly

the 2014 SRT has the regular stereo so I used an Lc2i interface which sounds ok
and the Trackhawk has the HK so I used a Pac Harness which is awesome!





I have an old school Rockford Punch 500a2 for the front speakers, a 600a4 for the rear doors and under seat subs and a 1000.1 for the subs as well as a Kicker 200 for the tweeters

Lmfaooo!! That is Amazzing and Some F**king Build! Damn sure that’s Hair Raising! I used a pac as well but your’s Look’s Sexxier than mine. Where exactly does that plug and play? I had to pull rear cargo panel and unplug sub and tap in there , grabbed a Rto from The Plug for charging in rear cargo area. If ya can member where ya got it pls post a link to it , maybe i need that!
i Just don’t wanna over complicate it amd if i tap into the speakers any one em doesnt it drop bass as you gain Volume ? Which in that case i’d go w an lc2i to compensate for that but my Pac’s work great i jus melt em up about once every 8-13 mo’s lmao. I’ll post a pic of the lst one when i get hm! You’ll for sure get a Kik outta it!
