On Saturday, Team dB hosted a “meet and greet” at Sanlam Centre, top parking lot. This was to do a mini photo shoot for their next booklet. Instead of just a club meet, they decided to call on all car freaks and clubs interested and what a turn out it was! The “park off” kicked off at 11am and …

Fire Fly – Ford Escort RS

Neville Varney’s orange little Ford Escort needs no introduction to the Cape Town “Car Show” scene. It went under many transformations to what it is today. He recently had some alterations done to his house by adding another room, all this for his “Show and Shine” trophy collection!

Being a panel- beater by trade, he always wanted to build a show car to advertise his business. When he received an invite from Zabby to showcase his work at one of the first “Streetmod Custom” shows, he decided to build what you …

NavCol Super Car Show – Event Coverage

The excitement and hype generated for the SA Naval College Super Car and Bike Show was worth the wait. Once again, Team Venom, in conjunction with Team Autopunks, unleashed some dangerous venom!!!! The wind was hectic in Gordons Bay, but that did not deter the petrol heads to come out and support this event. It was good to see some new “show and shine” contenders and it just shows how the sport is growing. DJ Ready D along with his wife, Anwar Daniels, Marlon, Zabby, Noer Asmodien and the D1S …

Custom Speaker Pod Build

I always wanted fibreglass speaker pods in my car and so many friends offered to do the job. Not that I don’t mind, but I always wanted to do it myself. After some extensive research I decided to build pods for the front doors and rear parcel shelf. Remember, this was my first attempt…
1. I made my own speaker rings using 8mm MDF board that was also cut to shape to form the back of the pod.
2. I attached the speaker ring to the backing piece using the 12mm dowel and hot glue. The dowels were cut to give a required angle.

Question Section – Audio Advice

I’am only getting 135.8 db with the 2 subs and I ran them on a 6000w XTC amp. I now installed a 6800w Monoblock 1 channel amp, how do I connect the subs to get the best out of them for sound shows, the guys with their Corsas and V dubs laugh at me whenever I enter for a sound competition. Do you have any suggestions, ideas to make it play better, louder, more bass, maybe going for 140db+ ??
