EQ, Crossover, Noisegate and the Fifth Amplifier

Two 30 band, 1/3 octave mono equalizers were located on the left side of the car. Next to them was an electronic crossover, and a noisegate was also installed to prevent any noise from appearing on 0-bit test material.

Totally Stealth

With covers in place, the trunk maintained a very stock appearance. The spare tire was retained, and there was very usable space. On the right hand side, a second battery is located behind the spare tire.

Subs and Midwoofers

The Buick utilized a 6 speaker setup, with two 15" subwoofers in an AP enclosure handling bass frequencies, two 12" midwoofers in the rear quarter panels handling midbass frequencies and two WaveGuides handling all upper frequencies.

Passenger Side Dash

The very first WaveGuides were used in the Buick. Both WaveGuides were integrated into the dash in such a way that it was hard to tell they weren't factory.
