Sanded out the bottom of the trunk, had a water leak and it was rusted to hell and gone, Sprayed with LeakStop 2x cans from homedepot. Spray foamed with Great Stuff behind the tails, another place it was leaking, normal neon problem...

Hushmat and more foam in the trunk lid. Wasn't all cured after the 7 days so it started leaking out abit thru the deadner.

The crossovers are secured in the door panel itself, Had a test panel to check clearance issues. The spot I decided to use is kinda ugly but it does work well.

This is where I ended up.

So yeah im still in need of a H/o Alt, Ive contacted Mechman 4 times via email still no answer, dc power also, another company Quick Start, doesn't make the bracket or alt...there email says they are working on making a new alt that fits in the stock location that wont require a bracket. I haven't contacted Iraggi yet.

I'm about to scream!!!

Tomorrow's work will be hooking up the Infinity 3.5's in the dash to the Xovers, Have to be careful with them abit I'm pretty sure there only 50rms each.

Thinking about taking the old set of RF tweets from the T1 set. If I do they will be on the top of the B pillars, try and get alittle more imaging from the highs.

  • 3 weeks later...

Ok well a stretch of bad luck, the pioneer has finally pissed me off enough to pull it out, using my old JVC kd-hdw10 w/ ipod adapter. Kinda hate the 2.5v preouts but will do for now. Built in 7band eq atleast. lol

On a good note I found a Singer alt for my car finally, should be ordering it in the next few weeks!! Only thing they have is a 190 amp alt, but its gonna help out so much over the stock 90 amp thats in it now.

Cant wait for that!!!
