As some of you may know... I used to own a 96 accord that I called the DemoCCord. Well, a quick summary of the year + that I have been gone goes as follows.

INTRO

I attended Texas State University and got my BS in Multimedia Production. I then got a job in South Austin (Texas). Somewhere in between that my 96 accord had On Axis dash pods with a B2 reference 3 way set and was still able to put up a 148 outlaw at 32hz. Then my accord started having more mechanical issues then I could deal with. SOOOO i bought a new car.

On to the build log.

So after searching through many cars I decided on a 2016 Mazda 6. I bought it off the showroom floor with 18 miles on it. It can seat 4 very comfortably (even if all are 6' tall), It gets mid 30's on the highway per gallon, it has a very respectable trunk size (muahahahaha) and to top it all off its pretty quick when I want it to be. So im in love.

This build log goals =

1) Maintain an OEM (or better) look to anything I add or modify.

2) Be very competitive in SQ classes

3) 147+ on the meter with a pretty flat bandwidth

4) The only thing that will be more detail oriented then the build log and pictures, is the build itself particularly in the wiring and fabrication department. (like zip ties every 6 inches, all the deadener facing the same way... that kinda stuff)

The products that will be used (pictures coming soon)

B2 Audio

B2 Ref63 (the high end 3 way set)

(2) B2 Quattro's - One powering the 3's and tweeters, the other bridged on the mid bass

(1) B2 Zero.5r "A 3k amplifier" - more on this later ;)

(2) B2 HNv3 12's - D2 coils

(1) Prototype B2 6to8 DSP

(1) B2 Lithium SLIP40a

SecondSkin Audio

160sq feet of Damplifier pro

140 Sq feet of overkill and overkill pro

and a few other goodies... Ken always hooks it up.

Other things

(1) Northstar Group35 OEM replacement front battery

Sky High battery terminals

100 Feet of 2/0 welding cable

4ga and 8ga welding cable for other stuff

About $150 in techflex (2 colors and 3 sizes... yes im going that OCD)

Stinger 12ga, 16ga speaker wiring

Soundrive custom RCA's ( 4 pairs of 15 feet, and 3 pairs of 16 inches )

JL audio Fix86 - Its to grab my OEM signal, normalize it, and then I can feed a low level signal into my DSP

Metra speaker adapters for the front doors

FAST Rings for the front doors

12v Metalworks Custom fuse/distro block and 2 ANL fuse holders

About $350 in Tesa tape to help me put on the deadener perfectly and wrap OEM looking wiring harnesses

Odds and ends... like Neo magnets to hold beauty panels * more on this later ;) *, threaded wood inserts, and rivets, all copper lugs... TONS of odds and ends... seriously, its painful to think about how much was spent.

All the stuff out of the accord totaled about 5 grand retail, and I just spent another 5 grand or so getting all the other parts for the system. Pictures will be uploaded soon. Ive got pictures of the car (stock), and pictures of a bunch of stuff ordered and a bunch more on the way.

So show some love, and keep tuned.

Thanks guys!

Lets take a look at speaker placement options... I was considering Kick panels... but Im 6'3" incase you haven't met me in person. I need my leg space.

So here is what im working with.

Alright.. so there is a look at the space I have to work with. After all this evaluation I decided its best to do the 3's and tweeters in the stock locations (with speaker grill cloth and the stock plastic cut out) because a fellow SQ mazda 6 owner warned me of problems in the 300hz range because of the plastic stock grill breaking up the waves.

Ill also be putting the 6.5's in the stock door locations (surprise surprise) but I think a good bit of sound deadening, Fast rings, ABS speaker adapter, and some overkill will make those doors and door panels nice and solid. :)

Time for some equipment pictures. Ill post up whatever I have from the accord build and whatever I have gotten so far. I still have a TON of stuff coming.

This makes me happy.

IMG_2607_zps1nnpxask.jpg

Stout little sucker

IMG_0902_zpsqb0xcbkh.jpg

Mounting depth. Hopefully its not a issue.

IMG_4949_zpsoyz8mvwr.jpg

FAST ring.. I love these things.

IMG_5060_zps3tk6unzz.jpg

Here is the B2 Ref63. Its a really nice 3 way active set up for a price that is mind blowing.

IMG_4970_zps6ii1y4mz.jpg

The HN 12 is the sub in the middle. Ill post more pics of the equipment as I pull it out of the Accord, and as I get it in the mail.
