started the build on my 05 sebring i just got.

equipment will be the same that is in my sig just transplanting it from the grand am to the sebring.

gonna do a port front sub front setup sealed from the trunk.

its a little rough int he pictures but since them have taken a flush bit to the edges. still need to make a cage aroudnt he box so it doesnt slide around, run all of the wires, fiberglass the sails, and make an amp rack will ahve lots of pictures as the build continues. any constructive criticism is welcome always down for new ideas

good plan. you might gain or loose SPL though, some cars it works, some cars it does not, in theory however, that is a great idea, i hope it works for you!!!

that was what i was worried about. i need trunk space for goign back and forth to school so i figured it be more practical this way. hope i dont suffer a loss in spl though

are you going to cover it, or paint it? Looks pretty good.

Crzy
05-27-2008, 02:45 PM
its gonna be painted the same black as the box in the first pictures. amp rack will probably be painted the same satin black also

That looks good man, good work on that cover panel. How much room do you have between the subs and the back of the rear seat?

Crzy
05-27-2008, 03:19 PM
at the top there is like an inch or two and at the bottom around 9-10 inches. havnt measured it just been eyeing that part too make sure there is enough room for the subs to move

do you guys think it will be beneficial to use weatherstripping along where the sub meet the baffle? i am going to use great stuff to fill in the rest of the smaller holes in the rear deck to make sure the trunk is completely sealed off. woudl the weather stripping be a waste of time and money, or would it help

cant really go any further on the baffle or start an amp rack since everythign is still in my other car. this car isntt goign to be on the road for a few weeks so kinda slow going at this point

made a few things though. these were head bolts, put a cross section on top and dimpled the head of the bolt to hold the bar in. these will be holding my box to the baffle

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v489/crzysvgusr/yayocomputerpictures052.jpg

then i pulled the front doors off, i thoguht they had 6.5's behidnt hem but they were 6x9's. had to mod the bafffle to get my jbl p650c's to fit. would you guys think its beneficial to seal these pods off with another peice on the back?

does the same concept go for midbass drivers as it does subs? that freeair is not that great. the doors are pretty open and not really deadend all that well nor am i going to due to lack of funds. so would the best way to get the best sound i can be to seal off the pods?

I also would like to hear some opinions on the doors. I have a sebring as well, doors are deadened and sealed but there is no mid bass. I have a set of germaniums so I was expected some good sound quality, buts its quite dissapointing. I think its because of the location of where they are mounted. Would door pods help any?

Crzy

how did you mount ur speakers inside the door? a similar way? if so does the speaker have any trouble fitting between the door and the panel without hitting the backside of the door pannel.

if that doesnt make sense i mean does the surround of ur midbass drivers hit the inside of ur door pannel when playing at high volumes?

JeffM

I made a custom baffle out of 3/4 MDF, and Im not even using that plastic baffle that the stock 6x9's came with. I also mounted the MDF baffle on a half inch of modeling clay, and I have no issues with the speaker touching the door panel.

Crzy
06-02-2008, 07:08 PM
doing it that way do you have any issues with water dripping down on the speaker though? i like the facvt that the baffles have the edge on top to stop water from driping onto the back of the cone and onto the coil

JeffM

I actually removed that foam protector and placed it on the mdf baffles I made

ripped all my equipment out of the old car and started putting it in the new one. ran both sets of rca's, the right side woofer and tweeter wires and the remote turn on to far.

started the amp rack also, it will house the rear battery behind the amps, the clarion amp will be angled above the hifonics amp which will be mounted vertically. not much room left in my trunk which is what i dont want but o well. i think music/bass is more important anyway.

edit also what is the best wood to make pannels that cover the amp with? ive used some weird 1/8" veneer i think on my old car but was wondering what some of you guys use?

I used 3/4'' MDF.. same as the box.

Crzy

everything is abssicially installed now just need to finish the tweeter pods. the wiring will be fixed just ran them to make sure everything worked and i wanted to listen to it. dont have the rear batt hooked up to the front so only hearing at 11.5v or so but its louder then my old rear firing setup i think.

I really like those fiberglass tweeter pods. I have my tweeters mounted to the A-pillers, but I would like to do something like that with mine.

Crzy
06-07-2008, 03:28 PM

I love the way those tweeter pods turned out. You wouldn't be interested in making another set would you? I'd like to have a set for my sebring

wouldnt mind they werent too bad to make, pm me and we will figure something out

Crzy
06-20-2008, 12:48 AM
the false walls are coming out aright, still rough cuz i used old wood but i will b ondo it and make it look good. still have to cover the rest of the area as the cardboard kinda shows

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v489/crzysvgusr/yayocomputerpictures136.jpg

Do em in black. My 300M has the pods in those same spots. You think they sound better up there? I wanted something that put that and the midbass together like I see in other cars.

BTW, build is looking great. Inspirational.

Crzy
06-20-2008, 04:23 PM
yea i like hwo they souind compared to my old setup wich was doorpods with tweeter and midbass positioned near eachother.

i already painted them black i think i pictured it kind of out of it now just dropped the tank in my old carr to get the gas out and the fumes got to me ha

Crzy
06-21-2008, 02:02 PM

overall the pannels did not come out too bad for my first time carpeting something and making the false walls. tryed a bunch of new stuff in this install and think it came out fairly clean. still need to mount the amp pannel it is just sitting there right now.

:wow:Nice job man you think you can make some tweeter pods for a 2002 camry.Also you should carpet the rest of the trunk the same color black but thats just my opinion.Anyway good job.
