I finally got around to putting my sound system in my pansy little car.
So, without further delay...
1 x Pioneer DEH-P9850BT Head Unit
1 x Soundstream Reference Series RC-60F Front Splits (180W RMS per side) LINK
1 x Soundstream Picasso 760Watt RMS 2 Channel A/B Class Amp LINK
1 x Soundstream Picasso 700Watt RMS Single Channel Monoblock D Class Amp LINK
1 x Soundstream 1.2 Farad Capacitor with Digital Volt Readout
1 x Soundstream Digital DC Volt and Amp Meter
1 x Soundstream 0 gauge 1200Watt Cable Kit
1 x Soundstream 12" Reference Series Subwoofer LINK
And, some photos of the install;
The amp for the front speakers... originally a 520W Picasso, but it was faulty and got replaced by the 760W version
Size really doesn't matter when you look at the newer Picasso design amp, it's smaller in size but packs 700Watts of D class raw power
Here you can see the beginning of the end... the two amps in pre-install with the power cables connected... muahahaha
That's one beefy capacitor you have there
The front speakers are in! They look boring as hell... that's the whole idea!
Working on the wiring... this is still a nightmare at the moment. Will tidy up later -_-
Me, installing the crossovers onto the front kick-panels... because they are so fucking massive they wouldn't fit anywhere else :/
One of my mates thinks I am V.I.P.
Amps are in and wires are wired...
The uber crossover massiveness... it's not an edit... you can't see the pixels... do not pass GO, do not collect $200.
The construction of the subwoofer box is underway... with much liquid mails and 50mm screws
The last panel is attached!
Lock in those corners, we don't want any air molecules escaping xD
Packed with Dacron and ready to fly... err shake... whatever
Screwed straight through the floor of the boot with 6 heavy duty galv screws... shit ain't goin' nowhere!
At the end of a long day... you have some left over liquid nails...
To enjoy with your beer
And, the first test video... harmonic levitation
The rattle you hear in the video is surprisingly limited to the number plate. I thought the whole car would rattle itself to death, but a couple of styrofoam blocks under the number plate stopped that buzzing. Will film another video from inside the car as soon as all the speakers are run-in properly.
Hope you like it, because I sure do
The cosmetics will be improved over the next few weekends, like carpeting or painting the box... and installing cladding on the inside of the boot space to make the floor and walls look nice. Also, there is a shelf we have fabricated using the original as a sacrifice to cover up the view of the inside of the boot nicely. It still looks like a granny car apart from the front speakers
Now, time for some stereo insurance... maybe I can get the car added as an "extra".
