This is a little early but I figured I'd get the build log up and running to atleast get some ideas and advice from people. I requested a few days off in the middle of september so that I can work on the vehicle and hopefully get it done in about 4 days.
The stock system in the car is pretty terrible, so the current system that I've purchased will be temporary for atleast a few months just for some decent SQL (I like my bass as well) and will then be replaced.
Here's a list of the stereo equipment getting installed, the performance mods I'll be adding over the next few months, and my plans for the future build once funds are available:
First system being installed:
Vehicle: 2015 Subaru WRX Premium
Headunit: Pioneer 80PRS
Mids: Dayton Ref 7" Paper Cone in doors.
Tweeters: Dayton Ref Silk Dome or LPG 26NA if the Daytons don't fit in dash.
Mids Amp: JL Audio XD800/8 bridged to mids and tweets
Subs: (2) Obsidian Audio 10's
Sub Amp: US Amps MD3D (purchasing next week).
Sound Deadening: Stinger and Fat Mat
Wiring: Mostly Knukonceptz wire and RCA's (will be tech flex'd).
Battery:" Will be upgraded later down the line.
Performance Mods (none purchased yet):
Perrin Cat-Back Exhaust System
18" Wheels (way down the line)
Carbon Fiber License Frames (purchased)
HID lights (low beam, high beam, and fogs)
Interior LED light kit
Tinted Windows (hopefully in the next two weeks or so).
Future Audio upgrades:
Processor: Audison Bit Ten
Headunit: Pioneer 4000NEX
Subs: (2) 12's mounted IB
Mids: Morel for use as midbass drivers.
Midrange/Tweets: 4" Morel Integra XO4's (pointsource in the dash)
So that's pretty much the plan and hopefully I have everything, including the upgraded system done by the beginning of next year. The 4's in the dash and IB setup will most likely be done by one of the stud installers here in California.
I don't have many tools so I purchased a few things to get me through the build. I'm not very good with fabrication so I'll be having a friend build me a box for the 10's. A little long winded but hopefully you get the picture. lol
Here's a few pics and I'll get some more of the interior and engine bay tomorrow.
