Default 2007 Civic, P99RS, Seas, JL Audio and DSS

I am helping a buddy revamp his install. He was using a JL Audio component set for the font stage and JL Audio 12w6 subs powered by JL Audio Slash amps. He bought my P99RS from me and is now running active I gave him a quick four hour tune while drinking some beers and we got the JL's sounding really good. Good enough to be winning competitions but he wanted more. He bought a set of Seas components and is hoping for a better sound. I recommended a different route but this is what he choose.

We have a lot to go yet on revamping his install. Here are a few pics of the Seas midrange install.

Old MDF baffles that I told him had to go.


I made new baffles out of cutting board. Unfortunately I didn't take pics of this step. I used my router with a circle jig to cut the baffles. The boards are 3/8" thick so we doubled up on them to get 3/4". I used hot glue to join the baffles and used ht glue again too seal them the to metal door and used four screws to fasten them. I applied gasket tape to seal the drivers to the baffles since the baffles flexed out of fat once being attached to the door.












We are no done yet with this install, I will have to take more pics once we meet up next. His setup will be in the winners circle for 2014

I am building his enclosure for two DSS 12" powered by two JL Audio 1200/1v3. We are going to need to assemble the enclosure in the trunk.*

He received one of the subs he is waiting on the second sub to be shipped.







Here is the enclosure shape, ignore the dimensions, they have changed.



I am using these "L" brackets to locate the panels. These will help a lot during the in-the-trunk assembly. Only issue with these is to make sure you make them square beforehand! Titebond III will hold it all together.



Preasssembly has started.

My bro said his second sub will arrive on Wednesday*:wacky:

Burning the midnight oil



Laying out the enclosure. When you build an enclosure in the trunk you have to preassemble every fastener and panel before hand. Building an enclosure is fairly simple but assembling it in the trunk is often much harder since you are maximizing every cubic inch.*

These JL Slash amps are huge!*



Cutting up metal









The amp rack is height adjustable to help with installation since EVERYTHING is tight.





The sub amps will be stacked. Mounted on the right side.



Going to be using the Knu distribution blocks.





Couple to do yet until this is done.

Those wood corner clamps look nice, how do you like them?
I only have the cheap kind.
Good show friend!
