Looks like a Cruze to me. They've become surprisingly popular around here. Pretty cool little cars.

Wow, didn't expect someone to figure it out that easily, lol.




This is a 2011 Cruze Eco, manual trans, base for the most part. I opted to get it without the driver convenience package and without the upgraded Pioneer sound system since I'll be installing my own. I need to figure out how to wire up a LOC as I'm not sure if there are 4 separate channels coming from the amplifier to power the front tweeters and midbass drivers, or if there are two channels and some kind of crossover.

I bought aftermarket heated leather and GM factory fog lights for it from the dealer, which are getting installed on Tuesday since the Eco didn't come with leather as an option.

Sound system will be an active 2-way with a MiniDSP and an Image Dynamics IDQ15V2 sub.

I'm on w-body too haha. I figured that'* what it was before seeing it over there though. A friend and I took a non-turbo one for a test drive last year. It was a pretty perky little car, and really stuck on to the road in the turns.

I can't wait to see what you do for the sound system.

I saw a white Cruze yesterday with a CB antenna on the roof. It looked like a huge RC car lol

This sound system will be all-out SQ. The Regal is more of an SQ/SPL mix, which gets very loud and sounds great doing it.

For amps for the front speakers, I'll probably use my Coustic Power Logic AMP-460 and AMP-160. They're both out of the same series, made in 1992. We're talking seriously oldschool here, but great sounding amps nonetheless. They're heavy hunks of metal.

These aren't mine, but they'll give you a good idea of what they look like. Mine are scuffed up so I'm going to paint them before installing. They're the ones on the top and on the right.



The IDQ15 (also not my pic, but identical)

Got a really good snowfall yesterday.



I ordered the wiring harness for my sub amp so I can hook it up without needing a LOC, but will have to buy a LOC for the front speakers soon. Anyone have a recommendation? Its been a while since I've had to buy one.

Got the car back from the dealer from getting fog lights and leather installed.

I'm pretty pissed.
