Hi everyone, thought I'd put up some pics of my speaker upgrade and sub installation.
new 5 1/4" pioneer components and crossover in door card
I wanted an AndyMac type stealth sub, but wanted a 8" sub, so
Here's my first effort
I had made the enlosure approx the same size as the original sub size, as you can see an 8" subwoofer wasn't going to fit. i'd also made the enlosure from 12mm MDF NOT GOOD.
This one was made from 18mm MDF and quite a lot bigger to house the 8" sub.
Compared to OEM
Unfortuneately I had made the enclosure around 10mm too wide DOHH!!! This meant I couldn't get the LH side boot panel on. Double DOHHH.
3rd attempt With JL subwoofer fitted
After filling my garage with MDF sawdust I'd finally managed to build and fit my sub.
The amp was a Kenwood with Tri-mode. This was wired to drive the sub and rear speakers
Amp fitted behind rear speaker panel
I also fitted new rear component speakers and mounted the tweeters in the rear boot side panels
All in all a lot of hard work, but well worth the effort. I'm really pleased so far, great sense of achievment and now a great sounding system with the standard symphony head.
I still haven't set up the amp correctly as I dont want to damage the sub. Any advice on setting up the system would be gratefully received.
