Ok, hopefully i won't get as much hate here. This forum seams much nicer. If you live in or near the Springfield Illinois area, let me know!

I just wanted to try something different. Hopefully you guys enjoy reading this.

My car doesn't like all these builds..


Here was my last setup with my DD Z and Banda 7k. It was ugly, but loud as hell



Amps were between the seats.


Teardown:






Current gear:


Fi Btl N3's with DD composite cones & dust caps built by Tantric. Thanks Jim!


Relocated headunit to driver's side:


Five group 49 Exide AGM's floating


300 pounds of battery just chillin'


Batteries all hooked up


Got my new Ampere 125.4 in


M4a with lots of furrrrrr


Subs were mounted in infinite baffle. the baffle was two layers of .75 MDF solid, but not pretty. All surfaces were coated in Polyester resin:


View from the driver's side:


Special thanks to Jeff for the 3D printed Fi decal!!


Got some Crescendo tweets and a bunch of Sundown Neopro 8's from the yardsale


Hopefully getting started on door pods tomorrow


I've got 10 gallons of Polyester resin for fiberglass and a bunch of red dye for it

Took subs out and will be starting on a ported box. Not sure if I'm going to try and salvage the baffle. the box will be covered in the same kind of red shag fur I used around my m4a in the trunk.


View from the front trunk:


M4a and amp rack is out. Batteries are covered right now to prevent loose tools from grounding my + bus bar:


Subs and amp are all in my room currently






200 feet of SHCA 2/0 OFC. I will be moving my sub amp to the roof of my car (on the inside, haha) and will be doing 10 runs of + and -. It is comparable to welding wire 4/0.


Few lugs too:

Dude, this is nutty. I like it. I don't think I could ever violate the interior like that, then again, interiors are so easy to come by looking in the right spot for these cars.

Never would have thought to cut out dash to put enclosure in. Was curious where you were gonna find space for system in there. My friend had a '88 gt. Room for nothing.

Anyway, are you gonna make your own glas dash? With enclosure built in of course.

I am a bit confused as to what all exactly is going on but... Looks different man. Good luck. I look forward to the finished product.

It's a mid engine car. The trunk is in the front forward of the dash, and there's a tiny little trunk in the very back of the car behind the engine.

OP: that looks crazy! One of my best friends had a MINT '86 GT in high school and I always wanted to do a bandpass install in the front but never did.

My original dash is currently hanging on a hook in the garage. It wasn't in great shape anyways

Only place left to glass is above the gauges if i do decide to do that. I may just stretch the fur across that area, because my fuse block is behind them, and i may need to access that in the future.

Wall is in the front instead of behind where you sit. 7k (before rise) going to some custom N3's

Yea, I saw some builds on Fiero forums where they did an 8" sub bandpassed with some pvc pipe into the cabin. I wanted a bit more, haha



Hopefully more progress today, and more amplifier power later on!

The pair cost me $1,800, so I'm kind of partial to them. I'd need to at least break even if I was going to let them go.

Not sure anyone else wants to pay that much for them. If you do, they're yours, haha.

I'd like some new DDZ's

I wish they were just motors because that's all I need. Those things are insanely hard to find
