this is my first build log, the car currently has the following; and installed kind of sloppy.
275 amp DC power HO Alt, KHC1400 under hood.
C&D UPS12-475-FR in back. with 1/0 to the back.
JVC Arsenal KD AHD59 Head unit.
2 AQ SDC2.5-12 in ported box tuned to 40hz
MB Quart DSC4125 powering
RF T1652-S in front, RF T1652 in rear door.
Crunch P1800.4 powering
For now I will be keeping the amps, I will be adding another run of 1/0 to the back for when I upgrade the sub amp and add another battery.
The new equpiment will be
2 Lanzar Opti1535Ds
) being run by the AQ2200d will try both 0.3ohm and 1.2ohm set up, depending on how the amp likes the 0.3ohm with box rise, probably stick with the 1.2ohm until I can get either a second AQ2200 or upgrade to a 3500.
peerless sls 8" midbass replacing the RF 6x9s in the rear deck, they will be seeing 125 watts each on a bandpass of 60-250hz at 12db/oct slope (using fmod inline filters, we'll see how they work)
Lanzar Opti65, midbass/midrange in rear doors, they will be seeing 200 watts each on a band pass of 100-1500hzat 12db/oct slope
1 set of Alpine type R comps in the front doors, seeing 125 watts each set with a HP set to 100hz.
I have 100 sq ft of deadener for the doors and rear deck, more so worried about getting rid of rattles and vibration then anything else.
I just finished up the box, it is 8 cubic ft net, 115 sq in of port, tuned to 30hz. Was designed to take up the entire opening between the cabin and the trunk for minimal foam and deadener to seal off the trunk. The box is 3/4 mdf, but the outer baffle is 3/4 birch ply. the subs weigh 63lbs a piece so thought that might be better. We'll see not like I can't pull it back out and redo it.
I will be stripping out the backseat and rear deck, then cutting the sheet metal to get the box in place between tonight and tomorrow.
my plan is to get the box in and rear deck speaker adapters and speakers in first, seal the rear deck and wire everything in the back up, then deaden and seal the door speakers. and once the wires are as they need to be seal the trunk off then either add a beauty panel or cover with a speaker grill fabric to hide everything.
some quick phone pics attached, I was just wondering how to post them in the body of the post using a link from photobucket
. I will get pics of gutting and cutting as well as current and new equipment up tonight or tomorrow depending on how soon I can get them uploaded.
any suggestions welcome.
I got majority of the ideas from mistrass's build log for his altima.
I already have the equipment, time to work on it is more my rate limiting factor. Work about 60hrs a week, have a wife 2 daughters and a son due in september, so get what I can done as I can fit it in.
