cheers guys ill head into ashdowns monday,
went shopping again today (cant help myself
got some audio gear
picked up polk audio front splits, an alpine amp 110WRMS x 4 which will run the splits and sub, a slimline 10inch rockford fosgate sub for behind the back seat and some cheapy coaxs for rear fill, plus some sound deadening foam which was on sale.
I installed the drivers side split this arvo before it got dark, just off the headunit for now until i get the aux bat in to wire up the amp, which im waiting on the 2nd fuel filter before i instal to work out how to get it all to fit nice.
started by pulling off the door card and drilling out the stock rivets then removing the speaker
crap stock paper cone rubbish
i then pulled back the plastic and put a ring of sound deadening to seal the speaker to the door, and some in the door as well
the polks came with an awesome spacer bracket in the box so i screwed in on with some tech screws i had laying around
after checking out my options i decided to flush mount the tweeters in the door skin as they were to big to fit in the mirror backing and i couldnt be bothered fiberglassing up new sail panels. i reckon they came up neat
i then screwed in the driver
for the crossover i decided to stick it on the inside of the doorcard using some of the sound deadening with the foam removed, its sticky as anything so ill see how it holds up
then it was a simple wire up and whack the doorcard back on
running off the headunit there ok but i think they'll really come alive once i amp them up, i didnt worry about sealing up the service holes in the door, ill see how it all goes once everything is in and if it needs it ill do it later on.
thats it for today, ill do the other side and rears tommorrow and maybe run some cable for the amp
