I just started this build last week when i bought the radio and a backseat. Then got told i gatta have a vehicle ready for a show in march so i put aside my big build in my truck to focus on this thing. Its my 92 acura integra hatch. All stock except for aluminum radiator. As you can see theres a lack of room under the hood for making it clean. So heres my take i was able to do with fat hands First i took off the intake for more room. Found the alt. Why im staying with a stock for as long as i can Ran small 4ga for my run from alt to back battery. Factory alt is 80a so its plenty. If i upgrade itll go to a 120-180a For run between batteries i used t spec 1/0 i had left over from an old car of mine. Also mounted fuses where i can see and access them easily then came wiring behind the radio. Getting everything ready for stuff as it came in. Radio back together And running wires back. Yes all zip ties tails were cut in the end Will get pic of battery mounted down and the wiring to it tomorrow. Got in a hurry and forgot to take pics and enging bay put back together. i have more products coming. Got a delivery thursday and one sometime next week from ill customz. All i gatta buy now is my 2 ds18 exl sq series amps and 2 ds18 elite 8s. Ill keep yall posted. I have till march 15 to finish this
Updated as of September 2018!!! Go to last page(s) for most recent updates! This was my long time daily driver and first car. Currently am running 6 12's in a series 6th order wall. I regularly take it to events across the western U.S. It has seen 7 builds as far as I can remember. The better known was the previous 2 18's in a flat wall boasting my best scores to date of 162.2db Db Drag style 164.2 USACI. Today it is on half that power but maintains mid 156's drag style at 26hz and 161s at 35hz USACI style. Defiantly a demo friendly build. The Car: (1990 Jeep Cherokee XJ 4.0L) (6) JVF Customz 3.3 12s (4 Pairs) Audio Dynamics 3000 Series Components (3) DC Audio 3.5k's (2) DC Audio 90.4's (6) Full Throttle Group 31 Batteries (2) JS Alternators The Wall Build : Started in November 2015 Last pics of the car before stripping it out (In near stock forum just after finals 2015). After the car was stripped out. Removing things that were in the way such as old seat belt parts and rear seat brackets. Plastidiped the windows, looks great from the outside. Spray foam to create a seal on the sides of the car. Also added some 2" PVC pipe to run wires on each side of the car. First parts of the frame to go in, main beams that will create the plane the baffle attaches to. From here the rest of the frame will extend off to the rear.
whats up smd! its been a good while. feels good to be getting back into car audio, the hobby that made me into a commercial/industrial electrician. the last system i had was in a 98 oldsmobile intrigue with a single 15" in the trunk. first was obsidian audio on a hifonics brz1200, then went with a skar vvx 15 after that. ive had other equipment before those, played around with jl, sundown, audioque, t3 audio compnents, hertz speakers... so that was like 5 years ago. had to sell everything because we were in need of money. our first child was going to be born soon and i was the main person bringing in income working at ace hardware. well, now, thanks to the love of car audio, i signed up for an electrical apprenticeship program here in california and started my career as a general electrician. needed more than 12v sparks in my face lmao. finished the 5 years as an apprentice, took the state exam and passed! officially a certified general electrician. i currently work for anderson pacific as a journeyman electrician in the bay area. but anyways, enough of my history. i want to build! so i have somewhat an idea of what im looking to get for my 2012 honda accord. i commute a lot! ha so this will mainly be a daily setup. maybe compete just for giggles in the near future. because of my job and not owning/commuting in a pickup i need my trunk space. all of it haha. and also would like to have my spare tire easily accessible. so that being said i am willing to sacrifice my rear seats for the sub(s). im only keeping one seat available for a car seat but the rest will be used to fit a box. so i have something like 25"w 24"h 18"d to work with. i already have a pioneer deh-80prs installed and replaced the stock front speakers with a set of skar TX65C and the rear with a pair of skar fsx 6.5s. yup, i think im going with skar all around. i had good experience with their sub and components in the past. and theyre very reasonably priced for what you get. unless someone can persuade me to go with others lol... i will be running the stock alt for now (130a) thinking about getting a mechman later on. 1-xs power d3400r for the front 1-xs power xp3000 for the back with that im hoping to supply a skar rp2000.1 and possibly a sk100.4 already stated what i have for mids n highs a single zvx15 ported @ 33hz or 2- evl12s @ 32hz (i know go with the 2 12s more cone area.. but idk something about having a 15..) will be all sky high wiring and sound deadening (had some left over knu deadening from prior build that i put on the front doors.) big 3 of course w/ 1/0 and im sure there will be more as we go on. theres always more lol so what you think? just something simple for daily. my old lady is giving me a budget of 3k lol less is better tho. any recommendations, suggestions, comments, thoughts, some schooling would be grrreat! heres a simple box design i was messing around with on torres and sketchup. 4cu ft after all displacements including fiberglass. tuned @ 33hz. will be 3- 4" aero's thats it haha sorry didnt get a chance to get any pics of the speakers. i will next time around when i open up the door panels again. same for the rear deck. thanks guys...
