Default First build log, 2013 Honda Ridgeline Sport.

On call 24/7, so the updates to this will be fairly spotty. We'll start it off with the equipment list. Stock headunit (for the moment), JBL MS8, Phoenix Gold SD 1300.5, Alpine KTP -445, Focal TN47 tweets, Focal K2P 6.5 mids, Tantric 6.5 coaxial, (2) Sundown SD 2 - 8 subs in fiberglass enclosures behind the rear seat, welding cable, Stinger SP800 battery, Stinger Pro speaker wire, and lots of Second Skin Damplifier Pro.
Work will follow shortly, just wanted to get this thing started while I had the chance.

This is the wife's daily driver, so it came with quite a few rules. (1) All storage must remain intact without concern of damaging system components. (2) No visible wires ANYWHERE. (3) Upon resale/trade in of the truck we must be able to replace the upgraded equipment with the stock equipment in a short time frame and not effect any possible warranty work necessary. (4) "If you're doing all of this I better be able to feel it", coupled with "just eights?" ATTN rules 1,2,3. (Oh, and no "bajillion" dollar alternator swaps.)
Well, it started off kinda slow with no more than running power cable, swapping front components, and attempting to map it all out. Swapping components did require door cutting that would allow re-installation of stock speakers and the fabrication of driver/door specific speaker rings.
Tweeter installation was a breeze, fitting the stock locations without need for alteration.... Can't think of anything else that worked out that way.
Then I quickly moved on to the power wire routing, where we landed the project for about six months to wait for the subs to become available again.

Initial routing to the decided fuseholder location.
Splashguard removed to route through the fender/frame area to an available passthrough to the kick panel.

Off question...

How do you like the truck? As a vehicle...
Any problems thus far?

Absolutely zero buyer's remorse. Trying to pay it off ASAP to add an upgraded version. (I'll get the current one.) The only regret is not getting motorized seating in the front. Took a trip to Tennessee last summer and my hip started barking at me.

Received the subs in January, after six months of headunit power, these were definitely a welcome sight. Now I can get down to business.
Guess who didn't account for the considerable surround size.
Gotta cut some holes. Talk about some anxiety while my buddy is talking me into this.
It gets easier.

On to Deadening. Gonna take care of the doors later, just the rear wall for now.

Now tape.

More tape.
And foil, and more tape.

First attempt at fiberglass, with hands on instruction and assistance from my good friend Kyle.
