Smile BMW 7 Series Install

Well this is very exciting for me. Thursday I received a message asking if I would like to do an install on a 2001 BMW 740. After talking to him for two days I took a ride up to him on Saturday to meet him and the car. After him reading about me and my work he had no problem handing the keys over to take it home. He left Monday for a 2 week vacation.

Enough with that story, time to talk about the install.

Goodies include

SQA-4100 - CDT Audio 4 Channel Amplifier

Q 1200.1 - Image Dynamics 1-Channel 1200 Watt Amplifier

IDQ12V2.D2 - Image Dynamics 12" IDQ $149.99 x 2

130CVX - Focal 5.25 " Polyglass Coaxial Speakers

Stinger Pro 3 Series 6 Channel

Head rest tv's

Kicker 12 Guage S series 150ft

Kicker PKD1

FOCAL 165VR3 3 WAY COMPONENT SET

Dynamat 10455 Xtreme Bulk Pack 9 Sheets

This install will very much help my skills and expand them to fiberglass and custom boxes.

I will update this thread daily with new work and pict

Today i worked on the kick panels. The reason for this is there is no stock location for a 6.5 inch speaker in the door. Also this will help imaging a bit by having them facing the drive and passenger.

Drilled holes to help the fiberglass hold to the stock panel.



Laying down the foil and tape to protect the carpet.


Laying the cloth and resin




While that was curing I took off the door panel to take a look at the mid and tweeters.

The owner said that the speakers were upgraded but he did not know what they were. All that was upgraded was the tweeter.




Have to make a bracket to hold the smaller mid but will be well worth it.


The new tweeter
