I started a thread a while ago about suggestions for trimming off and building a rear deck infinite baffle. Well, yesterday the trim was thought up, and put together by Chad from Xtreme Audio and Design. The pics do not do it justice... The speaker aluminum trim rings are not brushed or cleared yet, but the center aluminum piece is done...

The rear deck fits like the factory part, because it is the factory piece. I made a mistake early in the build by cutting the trim piece when I should have just left it alone. A new one was over $300.00 and a month out so we built up a new center for the one I had. The aluminum pieces were thought up to give it a lil something to offset the ultra suede and also serve to hold the rear beauty paned to the baffle.

Next will be adding the amp rack (when I decide on a amp) and front stage as well.

How much did it run you to have xtreme do all that?

I did all the IB part of it... cutting the baffle, dynamat, cutting the deck mounting it, and using all the spray foam (by the way that thing is NOT MOVING, its so solid).

He charged me a FAIR amount. I mean very fair... I was super pleased.

Thank you guys I am super happy with it... Now, I am back from mothers day breakfast ughghghgh...

Unfortunately I cannot tell you how it sounds, because I am seriously thinking of not using my Memphis amp, and getting something else. Plus I need to wait till tomorrow to order my 3 way set for the front.

Now I have to do this today.

1. Hook up the AOEM CHR2 PAC Loc to get the amp ready.
2. Finish the trim for the bottom of the baffle
3. sand the aluminum trim rings, and clear coat them
4. make an amp rack (once I decide on a amp)

im tellin you man. keep the memphis belle.


down the road when something changes and you need more power, or whatever you will regret it. make an amprack along the top edge of your trunk horizontally so its not on the back seats or the floor and it would look sweet. small footprint large output.

Are you serious? Man... this is hard to understand... Crap I guess i should use it... Can anyone tell me how to change the color on it? I would love to take it off and paint it, but I dont know if its ok to do that, or powdercoat it, or something. I am just not liking the color to tell you the truth!

Well I got the rings sanded and cleared... I need to figure out what will not take the clear off, but will take off the double stick tape residue on the center piece... Anyone know?

I trimmed the side plastic pieces up pretty good to fit them back in the car. I need to do a lil more work to get them fitted properly.

I screwed the front part of the trim to the metal deck, and put the seats back in so it is starting to look like a car again!

Thanks guys!

I was going to mount the amp across the struts in the trunk...

I am using DLS or Hertz for 3 way. I cant decide. HSK 163 3 way set, or 8.3i 3 way from DLS

Nice. Glad it turned out so clean.

x2 on keeping the Belle, very powerful and **** amp. I was going to get one, but I got a killer deal on a RF Power-1000 25-to-Life.

Can't wait for vids.

I did the doors (dynamat, and pods from the factory I added some beef to them). Dynaudio 7s. They look small, I want the 8s.

I FINALLY GOT TO LISTEN TO IT! Subs and all! Holy cow I love the sound. There is no vibration which is what I was DREADING. I really really thought it would shake the rear deck, and it does not.

I am running a ZAPCO 650.6 on the whole system. The way I have it set, the power is about 180w x 2 on the fronts, and says 500w x 1 on the subs. I have the gain down for the subs. Man what a clean *** amp, I love it. And the reason I started the build was lack of midbass... Well I fixed that LOL. There is TONS. And I cant tell where the bass is coming from. I have to look at the rear deck to be sure the woofers are moving.

Only thing I am not all that excited about is the stage is low due to the kick panels. I have not touched the EQ or time alignment and there are 100s of settings with the PC program that it comes with. I cant wait to mess with it!

I really like the cleanliness and the execution of the system. Looks great, and i imagine that it sounds great too. Sounds like you're happy with it.

I've installed quite a few setups into 300/chargers, and i've always had a big problem with the trunk rattling, no matter how much dampening i do to it. I guess that is a great way to beat that problem.
