2007 Accord v6 sedan Stealth Audio Build

Just completed a Stealth audio build for a forum members 2007 Honda accord v6 sedan. His goal was take his current equipment and incorporate it in the new stealth build. Also maximize storage space in the trunk for daily use. His current setup took up much of the room in trunk area with a large ported enclosure which alone took up 70% of trunk space. Now he finally has most of his trunk space back.

Here are before pictures of the setup.




Time for the deconstruction process of the old system.

Next, the foundation base or floor for the audio system.





The 1 farad capacitor was mounted on the base floor hidden out of sight.

now shots of the system with grill cover in.



This build came out very nice, as you can see he has much more trunk space. While keeping the same amount of audio equipment. The system sounds better then before, the sub output seems higher. I added some blackhole stuff, made by orca design on the inside the enclosure Thanks for checking out the build guys.

Another quality build, Audioman! Again, love that stealth look. I need a setup for my current vehicle. Do you also work with custom fiberglass enclosures?

Thanks, I also build fiberglass enclosure when requested. Some cars that I need
To gain more air space in the spare tire area. I do the bottom
Of the enclosure in fiberglass. It all depends on thr goal of thr build.

No the sub plays the same with it on or off. the sub is recessed 1.5" so when the bass hits, it wont touch the grill. grills are to protect the sub and amp from damage when hauling things in the trunk.

Yeah I played around with both the cover on and off and noticed no difference in sound. I just keep them both covered, although I'll probably keep the amp uncovered during the summer months.

you could always do side enclosures on each side. I did a install in a Subaru where I built the enclosure inside of the spare for a single 12" sub.
