I'm doing an IB install next weekend and would like to see photos of ones people here have done. Might help me get a few tips/tricks to make my install go a bit easier.

It isn't pretty, and I never got it sealed as much as I would have liked.
But it has served me pretty well.

I actually have re-done it since I took these pictures.
And the biggest thing I changed was removing the center seat belt.
It was such a pain when creating the first baffle.

depending on your car, one tip i can give is this.

when you make your baffle, cut the top and bottom at angles to avoid last minute jigsaw problems. also, cut it about 1\4 inch too small for your hole. put masking tape or sound deadener all the way around where your baffle will be installed to create a barrier for the adhesive. the adhesive will go into the gap but not be permanently attached to the car due to the barrier of tape\deadener. then use some of that black can great-stuff spray foam. it cures rock hard, but a little goes a long way. you are better off laying down a single spray of the stuff until it hardens rather than spraying tons at once. it does not like to stick to itself. i used liquid nails around the baffle in my saturn, and i wish i had known about expanding foam. that is a lesson learned.

so get your baffle as close to the size of the trunk opening as possible and use the foam to seal the edges. in the NS15 install, i used the stock trunk floor carpet for the back side of the IB to match the carpet walls around the sides perfectly. and then i made a new false floor out of wood and carpeted it black. and then i put Grey on the front to match the interior.

really, the biggest thing to do is seal up the trunk as best as possible. i would recommend NOT using the black great-stuff spray foam for sealing holes in the rear deck and things of that nature to avoid flexing of panels during expansion.


post a build log and ill be sure to throw you some tips. ive done three so far, and i plan on doing more in the future :)

Thanks for the pics reg.

How much trouble is getting the seal done?

Any ideas for a quick remove baffle, for trips?

IIRC the old orignals were rated around 75wx4 + 300wx1 all @4ohm and 600wx1 @ 2ohms on the sub channel :D:D:D

they are 6 channel amps, not 5 channel.

it does 75x4@4 + 150x2@4, or 150x4@2 + 300x2@2.

however i had it going bridged at 2 ohm on the two larger channels, im guessing it was around 800~900 watts or more. i did pop the fuses a few times (had to replace with 3x30 amp instead of 3x40 amp because i could not find any 40 amp fuses). cool little bugger tho.


as far as a quick removal. your best bet would be to make a 'baffle' for your baffle. lol. it would be a 3" ring or so that fits in the seat fold area like in that honda civic or the saturn that i posted. and then you would make another panel that bolts to that using hurricane nuts and bolts, and a foam gasket between the two. the one ring would be almost permanent but the second ring would be removable.

that would be my idea of a removable baffle.

2 sheets of 3/4" MDF. Baffles are glued, nailed, and screwed together. Then the 2 are screwed to the car via L-Brackets. Deadener all around. Will be putting a beauty panel on after the false floor is added in.
