Starting the build log for my 2008 Mazdaspeed 3. A lot of parts are arriving so I figure now is a good time to start. Right now I've got in hand 8 Unlawful Sounds 8" mids, 6 Unlawful Sounds super tweeters, Pioneer AVH4200NEX, 15" B2 XM15, and a Alphard Machete 80.4. Still coming are sub amps (Undecided), 2 more super tweeters to complete the set of 8, a machete 150.4, Team GP Alternator, and enough NorthStar power to keep the lights on! Starting the work on the custom panels possibly tonight. Will update with pictures as work progresses. Installed 4 of the mid in very temporary locations and I am very happy with them. Unlawful makes a good product. Seem to be the exact same as the B2 rage series.

Down to picking between the Soundigital EVO5000 or the Alphard Apocalypse AAB4800 amp wise. Not sure which way to go they're both nice amps. Alphard is a little bit more.

Doing some sanding and filling on the drivers side door today. Missing a few parts still on the passenger but they are in the mail. Just picked up a Northstar group 31 for a crazy deal ($100) and still in warranty! Got a line on another used one for a similar price so hopping on that for sure. Will be getting all my wires and my alternator from GP soon. They are local so will probably just pick up what I need to get going faster! 5K will be here monday.

^^ mids and highs test on low power. That’s one of my doors, so 4 unlawful sounds 8s and 4 unlawful sounds tweets on a Zeus 1000.4 the team had lying around. Pretty good for low power! Just needed to hear them to stay motivated on the cosmetics!
