I had my girlfriend tape/foil the area where the amps are going

Then I layed out where I kinda want the amps, They are going to be flush mounted.

Here is the trunk Lid that I am going to mount and fabricate the LC6 to.

And here is the Fiberglass shell I Have made so far with about 4 layers or so of 3/4oz mat. So far this is used almost 3/4 of a gallon of resin.. Remember this is my first time It is possible I am doing it wrong...

I am going to a few more layers and trim it down and fit in there so its able to be held in place somehow.

I have about 10 yards of fiberglass and im going to order 2 more gallons of Resin from US composites.

I also am going to order distro block, 3 2ch 4m rca's, 10ft of 12ga wire, ring terminals from knukonceptz. And I already have enough 4ga laying around.

For your first time its not to bad but you need to get rid of the bubbles, they weaken the structure.
I reccomend using the chop mat because its eaiser for bumpier surfaces. Its harder to work with but it conforms better than the cloth.
As far as resin goes best stuff i found was Bondo. Its cheap and it dries really fast.
I think wal mart sells it for the cheapest.
Nice job on getting the GF to do the foil, that job *****.
P.S
If you havent already bought a subwoofer ive got a bunch of brand new tc9 based 12's i could sell you. It wouldnt even be close to $250 either

I Figured out how many bubbles I had the day after I did it. So on the next coats I tried getting them out and making it a lot better. I just cut the glass into like 3x4 pieces. I did the back of this amp rack structure first because its not going to be seen and gives me a little practice.

Okay i'll let you know about the tc-9 subs. Im running low on money during this project. So I am going to have to wait a little for the sub.

Nope. Im 17 and live in a small town where if i went to performance right now i'd get screwed over. So im going for sound and performance later. Its a v6, and I will probably go turbo in a few years and put out between 350-400 rwhp. I have already done all my research for it and would be a lot happier with a v6 turbo than a gt. Especially since my insurance will be a lot cheaper and my car payment is half of that.

I installed my alarm. I am actually still working out some of the kinks with it. The mustang door triggers are retarded. And my Remote start does not work after the bcm does a shut down. Stressing me out.

picked the cdt's up today and might I say they are massive tweets. Will post pics of everything later.

I have cdt es-06+ sitting on my floor next to the es-02 tweeters. My amp rack is finished, mounted, and all amps are mounted. I installed my distros and almost all wiring is ran, I have to run speaker wire inside the doors and thats about it.

Still trying to get a 3way xover, and the 12" tc-1000. Fiberglass box has not really been touched but should be finished in the next few weeks.

Need to go take some pics of the amp rack setup.

Will be ordering 3way xover, tc-sounds 12", and es-4 mids. For now im going to run the 3 way active xover off my alpine 7995. Not what I really wanted to do but... will work for now.

lrgnation
05-07-2007, 02:10 AM
I gotta question, I did not seal up those 2 big holes in the door because my door panel sticks in to them about 1 or 2" for the mid enclosure. So my door is not exactly weather proofed, but the entire back of the door panel is made abs plastic and the speakers are inside enclosures. Should it be neccessary to seal the doors because I did not reinstall the factory plastic sealer.

05-07-2007, 04:25 AM
first off, i didnt know the mustangs had that ****. im used to the 5x7 in the 2 fords ive had. second that should be a nice install. third at 17 your not typical in the fact that you actually give a **** for a clean install...i commend you. fourth, your gf is a G. and finally fifth...tell that chick in your avatar and sig to blow me please. peace

If you're still running the JL amps, they have all the crossovers you need built right into them. You don't need a 3-way front stage. The ES-02 can be run from the lower midrange up and the ES-06+ can cover the midbass region and don't initially need a hpf. The factory pods are probably goingto be a bit small for them though.

I might try that for now and then later on if i deem it neccessary add in the other 4".

Absolutely no reason to add a midrange to the mix. The ES-02 can comforatbly play down to 600Hz.

Dash kit and wiring harness for alpine cda-7995.

I have to do the following things.
Install deck
Install speaker wires through door harness's
Install speakers
Deaden rear deck
Remove rear speakers

I turned them up a little bit to about 15/35. and do they get loud or what...

Nice Mustang. I did the same thing in my 2008 pretty much when I bought it new, and the 2008's were even more of a pain in the *** to get to the rear speakers because you had to take out all the interior panel trim. in the 06's you didnt have to.

BTW.. bringin this thread back to life AGAIN! Mustangs !!
