with temps only in the mid 70's there was no way i was going to the river(actually it was super windy). anyway ive been wanting to ditch my hu but didnt have a way to mount my eq to my liking. so i just decided to fab one from fiberglass. took about 3 hours and 30 bucks.
my set up is mp3 player to eq to line driver to amp to speakers. next i plan to find an mp3 case for my player and mount that to the upper right of the face plate.
