just finished the install on my 04' accord EX yesterday, more pix on the way

its a 08 kicker L5 w/ the 08 5 channel and a metra tsunami 1.2 farad cap, all kicker RCA's, Kicker power kit

ill get more pics of the dash install and such, but inside the car its the new 08 kicker 6x9's and new 08 kicker ks components in the front, with an eclipse cd4000 head unit with the cubby pocket dash kit

lemme know what y'all think about the amp rack, took me a little while to build so id love some feedback

although im not a fan of the capacitor usage or the sealed box, that is definately a clean install. The amp rack looks darn good!

its a ported box man.. things got like a 6 inch port right on the left side where the terminals are.. you cant see it because of the angle on the pics, i wanted to get the rack and not the left side of the sub.. thanks tho the amp rack took a lil while because its like a 6 peice assembly to get it to wrap around and flush out like that, but i banged it out in about a day with the help of some kids at work

We have the same car ;)

Very clean setup, did the shop do most of the fabrication?

ah okay. I've never used a kicker prefab ported box before, and im not usually a fan of any prefab boxes, but from what you say its doing you just fine. And that amp rack is definately worth the work!

well i work at circuit city so all the work was done with the help of my buddies, as well as the install.. all the work was done in the shop but the fabbing was just with spare mdf and carpet we had laying around, my boss and i did the install, roughly with fabrication and such it took about 2 days

thanks man.. the box seems to be doing its job, thing beats pretty hard, especially since i kind of have it underpowered using a simple 5 channel, but all in all for my budget the system sounds awesome, wouldnt replace anything with the money i spent

Clean, but would ditch the prefab and I betcha it will sound even better with a custom enclosure off the same amp.

I'd build another enclosure, but A+ on the amp rack :)

If you aimed to get visual attention you certainly got that! The pieces of the system display nicely and the install looks uberclean, especially with what appears to be a flush-mounted amp. You got the carpet coloring going so well that if you had chosen to hide the amp and cap, then turned the sub to face forward, it would have been a stealth install to a casual passerby. Gray combined with the shape of the enclosure you built for the driver's side of the trunk make this install's look sweet!

nice install. I'm a kicker fanboy anyways so I'd love the parts. Very good job on the amp install, its so hard to get kicker amps to look flush

Great Job man! Looks verrrryy clean.....keep it nice and simple with the 5ch....even with the prefab bx it should still thump....everyone is suggesting a custom because obviously you will gain but I didnt see you asking for suggestions.....look good man....I dont care for circuit ***** myself either but its good to know some installers can do some clean work!
