Supercharged Cadillac Escalade - 2 New Chrome Mechman High Output Alternators

This is a build i did a long time ago. The owner left the system on for a week and killed the batteries DEAD by doing so. He also destroyed the alternators too because the worse thing you can do to an alternator is try to charge a dead battery with it. The 5 batteries were replaced with XS Power D3100's (previously odyssey 2150's) (click here to see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kz_1JLtKyJA ) and the alternators were replaced with brand new Mechman 270 amp units (previously Iraggi alts). visit mechman alternators website here: http://www.mechman.com Thanks for watching and if you subscribed, THANKS AGAIN!

Installed: 4 High Output 350+ Amp Alternators "SMD Spec" Mechman - 2001 Chevy Tahoe
as you may or may not know, i have decided to change alternator brands after many years of using the same manufacturer. The brand i had before was great, but i put these things through so much torture that the time came to replace some of them. This time i decided to try out some Mechman Alternators. Before they were built though, i wanted them painted to match my Tahoe. Matt at Mechman sent me the empty shells and i took them to my favorite painter Roy Devore at "Autobody Workshop" and had them shot. After that was done i sent them back to be put together. These things are MONSTERS! Click here to see some of that process on video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x7BQ6FnCTNQ That link also explains what they are doing to make them "bulletproof"......if you want to see the outcome and testing on this alternator, click here: http://www.youtube.com/mechmanalternators#p/a/u/2/mDpYvxDjfwU They have actually been on for a couple of days and so far they are AWESOME! I think the Mechman website is currently under construction so call or email him (865) 522-6166 or mlogan@mechman.com for a quote. Also, last but not least, visit my website! are you curious to see just why i need 4 Alternators? click this link http://www.stevemeadedesigns.com and see for yourself.

Supercharged Cadillac Rezcalade EXT 10,000 Watt ZAPCO System
This is a project i finished back in 2006. It is Chickens '04 SMD Cadillac "Rezcalade" EXT. As seen in the pages of Truckin' Magazine September 2006. Click this link to see it http://www.http://stevemeadedesigns.com/home/smd_ink_truckin.php Its a long story, but basicly Chicken hit a curb so hard with this SUV, it folded the wheel like a taco (search "taco job 26" on youtube) and destroyed 2 wheels. They were out of production and we couldn't find replacements anywhere. It took about a year of us debating what to do next before i realized, like a dummy, that they are 3 piece 26's. That means as long as the center is good, the rim is fixable! I had both of the wheels repaired by my wheel guys at AZA ( http://www.azaforged.com ) So after replacing the wheels, i got him some new tires. Kumho Tires SUCK so i got Pirelli 30/26's for it. I also replaced all the rear batteries and the front one with a XS Power D3100 ( http://www.wccaraudio.com ) . The old alternators were removed and replaced with Mechman Alternators, 300 amps each. Also used was a new Gates HD belt - a MUST for multiple H.O. Alt situations. I tuned the system with the new DD-1 and for now, its back to normal. We plan on doing more, but only time will tell. The reason its being flatbedded, because i know someone will ask (yes, even after i said it twice in the video) is because i cant drive two cars by myself. Its easier for us just to call our boys at Tow Pro and transport it. For now, its back home, running nice, sounding good......and Chicken is happy. The system Consists of: Pioneer Headunit Audio Control Processing 2 Zapco 4kw Amps 1 Zapco C2K 4.0 4 RE MT 15" Subs Rockford Fosgate Mids/Highs 2 Mechman 300amp Alternators 5 XS Power D3100 Batteries Alligator/Suede Interior Lexani 26" Wheels Pirelli Tires Baer 6 Piston Brakes MagnaCharger Supercharger Subscribe for more!

Battery Bank Replacement - (5) XS Power D3100 - 2004 escalade EXT
This is a "repair" on an older project that i did a few years back. Chickens "Rezcalade" EXT. Today i am replacing the rear battery bank with fresh batterys.The batteries were left unattended for a long time and they ended up dieing a slow and painful death. The batteries that were originally installed were 4 Hawker-Odyssey PC2150's in back and a yellow top Optima up front. I replaced all 5 batteries with the XS Power D3100's. The front was done a few months back but here i show you the process for the rear battery bank. So far everything seems to be running strong! for info on XS Power, hit up http://www.4xspower.com or you can find them on my forum at http://www.SteveMeadeDesigns.com/board in the "xs power" topic. I run these batteries in ALL of my rides and have had great luck with them. If your looking to upgrade your batteries, check them out! Join the forum and be in contact with a rep from XS just by posting in their section! Its easy. Subscribe! See what we do to this thing.

Classic Woofer Excursion! - Rockford Fosgate HX2 10 beatin' in the Tercel
I tossed a few classic amps i had laying around up on the test bench today just to make sure they still work. This amp, the Rockford Fosgate BD1500 was a dream come true to me at one point in my life and after playing with it today, i see why i loved it so much. This thing is a BEAST, even by todays standards. Even the classic Rockford Fosgate Punch HX2 10" woofer was gettin' busy in the trunk. This thing sounded clean and very accurate, hitting the lows with ease. Its always fun hooking up old equipment so i will do more of these soon! I got my eye on that Soundstream Class A 5.0 just begging to be hooked up! Visit my website! http://www.SteveMeadeDesigns.com/board join the forum today! Post pics of your system!

Extreme Car Audio BASS VS. Zoom Q3 HD Camcorder - SMD Camera Challenge
As you know, if you watch my channel a lot, i usually make video's based on big crazy, loud car audio. The type of bass we are talking about, can easily distort most camera's. Even though the point of the video isnt for someone to enjoy the actual song, but more of a visual example of how loud the system is....i still get people who complain about the "distortion" in the sound. I even have my fair share of dumb-asses who think my system actually sounds like the distortion you hear over the recording. Im hear to tell you, and anyone who has heard my system will say the same thing, its NOT what you hear in the video. Its clean in real life. Anyhow, Don from theaudiophile store, sends me a message telling me HIS camera is capable of handling the job. I tried to explain that my system is a lot different then his home, audiophile system and i would have no trouble demolishing his camera mic. A week later, the camera showed up. The challenge is ON! thanks Don, it was FUN....but the camera was a complete failure....at least for recording bass at over 157db. Does anyone else think they have a camera that can take the bass? send it, i will try it. If its good, i will buy it! (within reason that is!)

Extremely LOUD and CLEAN Car Audio - 4 18's 30,000 watts on ROCK - DOWN II
**Tremendous Bass 116** I recently had a video go "viral" on the internet, and as usual, a lot of people who didnt know what they were looking at, think that my system only plays at full throttle and only rap music. Well i am here to tell you that sometimes, i do actually turn the music down and listen at normal levels. Its also well known, to those that know me, that i listen to rock, and a few other types of music as well. My system has 30 speakers in it. 26 of them are NOT subwoofers. I know it makes a lot of bass, but the mids and highs EASILY keep up with the lows. The camera mic makes it sound like everything is distorting but thats not the case in real life. Check out this demonstration of something different then you are used to seeing from me. The song is called "learn from this mistake" by one of my favorite bands DOWN.

CLEANER SOUND! 12 15" Woofers in a Jeep - Setting Gains With SMD-DD1 Distortion Detector
Kasey came by with his jeep sitting on 12 15" DC Audio woofers in a wall. He also has 3 amplifiers running the system. A 4 Channel Rockford Fosgate Amp on the mids, a Alpine amp on the tweets, and a DC Audio 9k amp on the Bass. We very quickly set the entire system up and the results were good! Watch the video, see what he thinks of this product! AVAILABLE ONLY AT http://www.wcCarAudio.com *** Ever wonder how to set your amp gains properly? We now have a hassle free solution and anyone can set them like a pro! The SMD Distortion Detector DD-1 is the answer! This is not just an alternative to an Oscilloscope. It does not just detect clipping, it detects DISTORTION. Even a clean, unclipped signal can contain distortion. This device will sniff it out. Once you have set your gains with proper "overlap", you will notice your system sounds better then ever and may even be louder! Remember, the gain setting is NOT a volume knob, it is there to match the signal input to the head units output so you can reach maximum clean power as the deck is reaching its own maximum output. Use tracks ranging from 0db to -15 db (included on the disc) to set your gain overlaps according to the way you play your system. Detailed instructions will be included of course and i promise you this is EASY. EVERY serious installer should have one of these. Search youtube to see what the first "beta" testers are saying about this product. They are now on sale at http://www.wcCarAudio.com with an expected ship date of early August 2011. Visit the site and download the installation manual today, it is good readin' if you are interested in this product and want to know more before you buy. Follow my tweet at http://www.twitter.com/meade916 - i will for sure tweet the message when we get more!

Cadillac Escalade Suicide Doors with Supercharger
2009 Cadillac Escalade - Customized with many features including suicide doors, Giovanna 26" wheels, Toyo tires, Asanti grill and vents, Magna Charger Supercharger, Wilwood 16" brakes, Corsa Exhaust, Focal Speakers, Kenwood head unit with JL Audio amps and subwoofer, leather/suede interior. Note the door handles of the rear doors - they have been moved forward and also the roof rack is gone.





Installed: Cadillac Escalade Spohn Adjustable Panhard Bar, Rear Upper and Lower Control Arms
If you have ever lowered or bagged a Chevy Tahoe or Cadillac Escalade, at least pre 2007, you know they come down at some strange angle that makes the entire rear end shift to the left. This causes the wheel on the rear passenger side to stick out past the fender and very slightly touching it, while the driver side tucks inside the fender and has room to spare. This is caused by the factory panhard bar. The solution was to install an adjustable one. Now everything is even. I got it here (click link) http://www.spohn.net/shop/2000-2006-GM-SUV-Suburban-Tahoe-Yukon-Avalanche-E scalade-Hummer-H2/ . I also picked up the upper and lower control arms which are also adjustable, lighter and stronger. I installed these on my Chevy Tahoe a few video's ago and i HAD to get some for this project after feeing how they ride. It is a VERY noticeable difference! Visit my website to see this Escalade built from the ground up as well as TONS of other vehicles http://www.SteveMeadeDesigns.com/board

NEW BEASTLY DC Audio 175.4 Four Channel Amp + EXTREME Woofer Excursion
Check out the new BEAST of a four channel amp, the 175.4 by DC soundlabs....almost 1000watts rms for your mids/highs, or whatever! Today i decided to toss this amp and the new DC Audio 2.0k (monoblock woofer amp) to my test bench and play with them a little bit. Of course i used my '91 Tercel since its great to use it for experiments. I also used one of my favorite little woofers, the Rusty Flowers Signature edition DC Level 2 10....and this little guy who is only rated for a few hundred watts, takes a BEATING. It is still in great shape so no harm done! for more info, Email Rusty@dcsoundlab.com or visit my website forums and ask him directly, in the DC Audio section!
