Installing a Viper Alarm, JL Audio, and a Custom Subwoofer Enclosure in our Standard Cab Silverado

Project Over/Under, 2003 Chevy Silverado: Part 1

Aug 27, 2020
In the editorial the last couple of months, we introduced our latest "beat to neat" Project Over-Under. It's always a tough decision when it comes to what to start with when you begin a build, but since we are in the midst of our annual 12-volt issue, we decided we would work on this truck from the inside out, beginning with the security and audio. The idea of adding an alarm was to simply add door lock solenoids so the truck would have keyless entry, but we went with a Viper setup that offered a whole lot more than that.
On the audio side, we really just wanted to update the truck—and maybe get a little bass behind the seat. After all, this was intended to be the "basic" build for this issue. But, as usual, things snowballed a bit, and we ended up with a pretty nice system. Credit goes to Tim Wepprecht and his crew at Audiotistics in Victorville, California. Not only did they knock out the install in just a day, but they took our simple, behind-the-seat sub box idea and transformed it into a fully upholstered sub enclosure and amp rack. Audiotistics is also a top builder and installer of all things audio and an authorized dealer for all of the manufacturers we used in the build, including JL Audio for our amp, subwoofer, and component speakers, as well as the JVC Digital Media Receiver and the Viper Remote Entry and Security system. Check out all the manufacturers' websites to see what you can do for your truck's audio as well as the Audiotistics website to see all of its custom builds. Finally, check back here at Truckin to see how Project Over-Under evolves.
