i am looking to restart my ICE DIY again... 

since the old ice forums sgsoundsystem die out, anyone knows if there are still any general active ICE forums in SG? or is mycarforum the only general one left?

now everyone separated, so lets see if we can re-start. i know Bobcat recently appointed Emma Judge. there is still ICE competitions, but very very low key already.

 

lets see, i got Pioneer P99RS ready for 3 way active.

3 way component speakers ??? No Dyn esotar ok, something basic to start with. maybe Rainbow 3 way my fav. 

6 chn power amp ??? hmm looking at JL audio XDv2 or good ole Audison LRx6.9

Hi DJQ. The fad seems to have faded out a bit, but I still see many peeps with pods on their A pillars. I too have noticed the quiet in the ICE forums. I guess overseas forums and going to meet up your fave installer will start a little something perhaps. Good luck!

ICE is a lot more troublesome now compared to old days where every car had single or double DIN. Now all these integrated crap needs special bracket harness etc to retrofit stuff.

i got a car with a 2Din DVD headunit. planning to remove it to install the P99. but P99 being a reference HU. not built in amp. so i will need some amplifiers to start with. going SLT this weekend.

Hello DJQ

 

My 9.5 year old Audison LRX 5.1 channel and IDmax 12"  dekit as car up for scrap. Ancient... but still functions fine as I don't blast and I also lubricate the rubber woofer lining once in a while so its still smooth and erm... rubbery.

 

Amps getting smaller nowadays, if you need small then its not for you. if you are interested, let you have it for cheap. My present car is has pretty decent stock sound system and my interest in ICE is more infotainment directed now so going DIY carputer instead. Man... its been a long time since I touch fiberglass, looks like need to do it again as I need to hack my dash to slot in an LCD.

 

Anyway the picture of the amp and sub then that I DIY'd. Now the amp has a few scratches cos of the stroller... but I have replacement covers that aren't used.
