    I have a small e-wang.

    Head Unit: Pioneer DEH-P9450MP (old but much nicer to use than new models)
    Front Speakers: Boston Acoustic Z6
    Subwoofers: 2 x Image Dynamics IDMax 12
    Front Speaker Amp: Audison LRx2.500 (200W x 2)
    Subwofer Amp: Audison VRx1.500 (1000W x 1)

    My old 2400Wrms amp blew up a couple of months back so now I have less power but much better quality... Unfortunately, the subs and amps are still sitting my lounge room waiting to go back in the car :(

    Ain't got nothin huge in me van, but here she is anyways.

    - Pioneer deck (can't remember which model).
    - Clarion front 4" speakers (in it when I bought it).
    - JVC rear 6x9's (again, in it when I bought it).
    - Pioneer GM-7300M monoblock amp.
    - 2 Pioneer TSW302r 12" subs.

    Overall it's just a cheap budget setup.

    Here's some pics....altho it's all pretty much sitting in there at the moment until we chuck the wooden floor in and screw everything down. The amp will be moved onto the front of the box which it's sitting on....that's just a big ass box thing which we put junk in.

    Here's my other L300......which is now defected so we got some killer plans for it.

    Cops didn't like the tacho, that's one of the things on the defect notice lol.

    We've only had the Pioneer subs and amp for about a week. Was running both JL's with the powervox amp but it killed one, so we threw a Rockford Fosgate Punch sub in it's place and over the last few months ya can tell they're getting worn out.....so decided to buy some more gear! :thumbsup:

    Even had a disco ball hangin from the roof! Also had a few other strobes hanging from the roof behind the rear seat. :thumbsup:

    The big strobe in the middle is 240v, but have also put a inverter behind one of the panels on the side, and have a small powerpoint terminal wired up....so yeah not just to power the strobe. Also got 3 pairs of 12v fluro's in the back.......it was a killer van.....my little bro (PEAKN6 on here) pretty much wired up the lot lol.

    Here's a vid!:w00t:
    YouTube - Disco Ball & Strobe in the Vano

    And a few more pics...

    Here's one showing the disco ball.
    [​IMG]

    One of the fluro's. All 3 were wired up to a switch just inside the sliding door, so they can all be turned on or off (and also individually using their own switch).

    And the powerpoint.

    front amp: eclipse 36401
    sub: eclipse sw6123.4

    Nope... Haven't put the amps back in since I got the new Audison sub amp. So I have custom fibreglass sub boxes, the two amps and two subs just sitting around doing nothing because i'm lazy :(
