05 Acura TL, DD 9518, M2a, ported rear deck

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, thought I would share my new build here.

05 Acura TL

Pioneer avh-4800bs 

Vifa XT19 tweets

Silver flute 8's

Rockford T400-4 bridged

DD 9518g

DD M2a

7 cubes net, 32hz, 2 6" ports through rear deck. Diy flared

2/0 Lincoln Electric welding cable 

 

Started out with 1 stereo integrity HT18 infinite baffle on a jbl bp600.1

Loved how clean and smooth it was, could hit any note. Played 10hz test tone effortlessly. Just not enough output for me. Also had to angle the baffle back quite a bit to fit it.

So I caught a good deal on the DD sub and amp from a buddy, and proceeded to make it fit. Had to cut some metal out. And since my back seat doesn't fold, just the arm rest. I decided to port through the rear deck. Had to build the box in 2 parts to fit it in the trunk. Ended up reusing my baffle from my IB setup. 2 layers with a 3rd flushed. 

 

The DD next to the SI

The box. 7 cubes net. 32hz. 2 6" flared ports. Tried for a 3rd, couldn't get it to clear the magnet... Might try again later.

I forgot pics of sealing the box off with foam. Sealed the deck off with ram mat.

Overall I am very happy with it so far.

Looks great with the DD peaking through the hole. How do you get to your amps to adjust them?

Hahaha it's a royal pain.... I tuned the Rockford before I put the box in. It can be adjusted still, but requires peeking between the box and the amps. There is about 3-4 inches between the bottom of the box and the top of the amps. Enough to stick a screwdriver in and tweak.

The sub amp isn't bad, plenty of room. Also have a JL line driver/ remote knob for controlling the sub. Still gotta take pics of that, wiring, and the double din install. Need to make a trim ring to trim out the pioneer...

Cool build man, I dig the "maximum stuff in minimum space".  

How do you like the Flutes?  Ive had 2 installed for the last week and the sound is just starting to warm up a bit.

Thanks guys. Funny thing. When I told me about the sub, I swore he said it was a 15. And I thought woohoo I'll still have some trunk space.... Lol then he says 18 and I'm like dang, I don't think I can fit it. Haha. But it fits, didn't really cut any corners to do it, it slams, and I'm happy now lol. Still have plenty of upgrades and things to change though 

 

As for the flutes, man they are great. I really like them. They are almost a little too warm for me. Maybe I'm just used to a clinical sound though. I love how guitars sound on these speakers. Same for the vifas. Only thing I'm not happy with is the crossovers. I'm using some CDT crossovers, and they have a tweeter protection circuit that I'm having some trouble with only when I crank it though.

I love car audio so much because I will never be done. I can never win, and I will never get it finished or perfect. It always has me coming back for more, I can never get my fill of it, but I get what I need.

Nicely done !

An 18" DD in a trunk : that's so cool !

Why do you run your amp bridged, with a passive crossover ? You could run active, and not loose any output, even with less watts.

Good job.

Haha thanks a lot guys. It was definitely some work to get it all in. The rear portion of the box barely fit when the trunk was bare metal, well when I put the trunk side panels back it, it took some force to get it in. I thought it wasn't gonna go. But who hoo it did!

I was really close to running active, but honestly I don't have the tools or knowledge to tune them active. I have the wires and rca's ran, so I can swap it over and try it. Hopefully I can find some one local who would give me a hand tuning it. I don't really trust my local audio shop to do it right.

Sometime in the future I want upgrade the alt, and batts. And bump up to a 3k or so.

I did go grocery shopping yesterday, and was able to fit $150 worth of groceries in the trunk still hahaha
