Im doing this build for a customers car, not my car. you pay for what you get in most cases. This is a sound quality build. I try to use the best equipment possible to meet their budget range. I always tell my customers you don't base it off of what other people say, internet or even what I say. Its your ears and sound is subjective. to many people come to me with a set amount and just want sound and are not looking down the road when they will come back wanting something else. I try to steer people from dumping money into a pit where they will never be stratified. I set down with them and go over their goals for the system short and long term. if they are off in their budget, I tell them never to settle, just wait and save instead of doing a impulse buy. my goal to provide quality builds not just sell equipment. there are many retail stores already that handle that side of things (bestbuy, walmart and online retailers). They come to me because they want and will get a top notch quality build that will last years to come. 3 years manufacture warranty on all equipment in the build. That's why people pay close to retail and don't have an issue doing so. So stay tune and enjoy the ride.

Plans for stealthing the 10"? Always wanted to mount a piece of 3/4" to the metal behind the rear seats, scoot the rear seat up an inch and make a double baffle, flush mounted, fiberglass box to fit it all together.

And would really only take up the rear 8-10" of the trunk. Could even add a layer of mdf as the back of the box and mount the amps to that, build an amp rack box on the back of the box, fans and wires out the sides, carpet and trim piece the back of the box and it will appear factory.

Im doing away with the spare tire, so the sub and amp rack will be in this area.

Next moving on to the sound deadening of the doors which help keep the road noise and vibrations out of the car. also I had to make minor cuts to the sheet metal diameter to fit the new Illusion 6.5" mid bass. Also
added new holes with screw rivets in the sheet metal to mount the mdf adapter.

Next the adapters were made out of 3/4 mdf and then weatherized with bed-liner spray to protect the wood.

So this is where I had to stop due to the customer needing his car this week for work. So i will be working on the trim panels for the trunk in the coming days. I will finish the build when he returns on Saturday. Left to do, -running the speaker wire, power wire, rca and remote wire to the trunk area. pull the rear speakers out so bass will enter through the openings. some mat on the rear deck and spare area. wiring up the amps, processor and tune the car. stay tune

Depending on what you do for timing delay and if you measure resonance frequencies, this data would be much appreciated.

Soon to be running a similar ysstem, just mounted to the back deck.
As well as screw points, I always thought the gas tank was under the trunk and didn't want to start a fire trying to mount an amp rack in the tire well.

the gas tank is towards the front of the spare tire area. here
is where I put holes in the trunk spare tire area. you see three steel screw rivets so I can screw #8 2" screws through the mdf to the spare tire area to secure the system. I added two more rivets not shown to make it even more secure.


will you be using a dsp? if so what brand?
