Well I just picked a new car about 2 months ago (2012 Hyundai Veloster) and of course instantly started seeing what I could with it audio wise. Unfortunately, I traded in my last car and had to leave my Skar 15's, 4 Massive Audio amps, Scanspeak Speakers, and my beloved Pioneer P99RS in it :( So now I gotta start from scratch.

I want to try and keep as much space as possible available and want to keep it stock looking.

What I'll be running.
Headunit: Stock HU w/ NAV, BlueLink, XM, etc.

Processing: Still up in the air with this but considering the Masconi 6to8, JBL MS-8, Arc Audio PS8, Audison Bit.1, and the Rockford Fosgate 3sixty.3.

Speakers: Arc Audio Black Series 6.0 (6.5" doors), 4.0 (single 4" for center ch.), and 1.0 (Tweeters) all ran active. Stock rears will be used with option to fade them off.

Subwoofers: 2 JL Audio 8w7's in JL spec'd ported box (2c/ft tuned to 34hz)

Amplifiers: Boston Acoustics GT-2300 sub amp. 1400wrms at 2ohm.
JL Audio XD600/6 ran in 3ch. mode (200w x 3) 6.5's and single 4" center ch.
JL Audio XD200/2 (75w x 2) for the tweeters.

Deadening: Alpha Damp and Raamat

Electrical: Stinger SPV44 under the hood, 0g wiring, big 3 upgrade.

Current Car mods: Tinted windows, Short Ram Intake, and HID Lights.

Future Audio Mods: I'll be trying out some Sundown Audio SA-8v2's possibly 3 w/ more power depending on how I like the loudness of this setup.

Future Car Mods: Magnaflow Exhaust System, Strut Bar, 18" or 19" Rims, and HID Fog Lights.

So that's the list of current and future mods for this car, it's not fast at all and it's pretty much an economy car so I want to keep it nice and light. I'll be using birch for the box and amp rack. The amp rack will be installed in the spare tire area where there's a fix-a-flat pump put instead? lol. Should be plenty of room for the amps and will be well hidden.

On to the pics:

he already has the subs and the w5 takes up about as much room a the 8w7 if you consider the actual recommended sealed box size.
2 8w7 1cube
1 13w5 .9cubes

and the 8s would dig deeper but that doesnt matter since he is porting the box for more output.

sorry to thread jack the equipment looks awesome though and i cant wait to see this coming along

Yeah, I'm even going to try out the new sundown 8s just in case the output isn't enough.

cant wait to see the install process!

I'm still debating whether I want to install it or have a shop install it, the vehicle is pretty integrated so I'm not sure I want to mess with it.

Just got back from the shop, looks like the total install will be $1020 which includes:
Box, amp rack, ipod relocation, sound deadening installation, speaker installation, wiring, and processor installation.

Not sure which processor I'm using yet but they sell Focal, so the Masconi 6to8 is the front runner unless the PS8 comes out soon.

Its a nice daily driver. I'd still like some decent output and I'm a little skeptical considering its my first build with 8s. If I'm not happy with the output than Ill probably go with 3 sa8 v2s or 2 10s with more power. Its a pretty small hatchback though so it shouldn't take much to get loud.

Yeah, I don't think I can ever go back to passive components.

Where can the Arc Black Series stuff be purchased? Anywhere online?

Arcaudio.com actually has them for sale. I emailed them to see if I could purchase single units and they said they're sold in pairs so that *****.

Thanks bro, It's been way too long without any decent bass. This will be my first time using 8s and I'm hoping it'll be loud enough for me. Already have a couple 10s in mind just in case! Lol

Received the box today. Looks great, pretty tight fit. There's about 3" of clearance between the ports and the side panel, hopefully its not an issue. Other than that it fits perfectly and I still have enough room for my tricky bag, water, and lunch bag for work. Getting closer, still up in the air with the processor I want to run.

Thanks guys, Vitveet is the man, he built the box quick and helped me out with a nice flat response. It's been too long without having decent bass in my car and a nice center stage!

Loving how nice the box looks & fits. Great install.
I was a little worried at first cuz it didn't fit but then I lowered the rear seats and it fit perfectly. One processor and center channel left then I can get it all installed. Still not sure which processor and not sure if I should go with a single 4" mid or 4" coax for the center channel since I can't fit a 4" mid and separate tweeter?

may i ask you why did you have to leave your system in there when you traded it in? last i checked we didnt give anymore money for someone that trades in a car that has a system and most of the time we rip that stuff out unless its a sports car or a car that appeals to young ppl but it doesnt add no value to the car what so ever

Well I asked to have it taken out first and they were in a rush to sell me a car I guess so they just told me they'd give me a $750 credit off the car. I went back and saw it there, everything was pulled and new A-pillars and kick panels installed. They replaced the P99RS with some cheap jvc I think.

When we traded in my wife's car I had glassed in a 10" and had a nice HU. I wanted to go home to remove it, but was told that they would give us an extra $800 credit towards the trade in or remove that amount if we took it out.

They probably sold it to someone who has no idea what it is for like $300.

Yeah, it's getting bigger. I know a few years back it got real bad when a lot of people lost their jobs on the oil rigs. A lot of my friends were working on them and ended up leaving Colorado after that.

Ok, finally got an update. I found a couple of local guys to install my equipment for much cheaper than the shop I was originally going to. The shop was a little shady and it scares me when I talk about active processing etc. and they just have a blank stare on their face. Anyways, these guys (Ryan and Chris) do really good work, so for anyone in San Diego that wants good quality work done for a good price, don't hesitate with these guys. They don't try to rush and half *** and they take care of it as if it's their own vehicle.

So on to the car. I only gave them a day and a half with my car and they had a set back when Ryan had to go to the hospital for stitches....whoops.

I decided to go with the JBL MS-8 and hopefully I get better results this time around considering I'll be using all stock locations and will be running a center channel this time. Here's some of the gear that's going in:

Mids going in. Apparently it was a PITA to get them to fit, they had to add to the original mdf rings and the drivers side has a little less depth than the passenger side.

Next time I drop off my car they'll be running the wiring, adding carpet to the amp rack, we're thinking about adding a plexiglass top to the amp rack w/ fans and led's, replacing the center channel which looks like it will also be a pain (SB Acoustics 4" equivalent to the ARC Black 4"), and a few other odds and ends.

Tweeters do not fit in the a-pillars flush nor the factory OEM location so I'm thinking we're going to have to fiberglass them into the sail panels. Those panels would be much easier to replace than the pillars. Also, not too sure where to put the MS-8 screen yet.

Thats what I'm wondering, 1400wrms should be enough for the subs but if the output isn't there, I'll be going to either 3 sa-8s, 2 10-s, or a single 12 on 2000wrms.

I decided to give the MS-8 one more try. 3sixty.3 will be next if I can't get the ms-8 to sound right.


Here's an update and some notes from my installer:

Got the car back on Tuesday, been putting up a fight still. I am beginning to believe this car was not meant to have any upgrades done to it, Seeing how the speakers are riveted in, the accordions in the door jam have zero space to run wire, and all the trim panels have no room behind them, but we are getting it done!

In order...
Gutted the car...

We then began to extend the wire harness from the stock amp to the MS-8, unfortunately i made the ******* mistake of hacking the stock plug off, now instead of getting the signal from the amp, the MS-8 is wire directly to the speakers, now i gotta go get a new plug and fix that.... This was a reminder of why we work slower to make sure we don't make dumb mistakes like this... Fortunately this isnt a costly mistake, nor is it gonna put us back more than 20 or 30 mins, just gotta hope hyundai has them in stock, as soon as i finish my coffee im heading out to get one.

I've been playing around with the tuning on the ms-8 and I'm really happy with the results. I currently only have the Arc mids, stock tweeters, and stock rears playing (no subs or center), and it sounds awesome! I can't quite get a perfect center image so I have to use the balance and move it over a little bit. Once the center mid is installed it will hopefully fix the problem. So far I'm really glad I gave the MS-8 another shot.

We will also be adding fans to the amp rack because the JLs and MS-8 are running pretty hot.

I live in Glenwood area. Moved up here last year and they are still having alot of oil workers getting laid off and relocating. Im in the Med field myself so not the same worries for me. If u thought GJ ****** u should try relocating to Miss for a spell then tell me how you feel.

Anyway keep the pics coming. enjoying watching.
The people at ARC told me they were still gathering parts for production on the PS8 but I they didn't give me an approximate time. For the time being I'm running an MS-8.
Just got the center channel, subs, sub amp, distros, and new RCA's installed. I'm blown away by the output and the subs sound GREAT. I got a pretty good tune on it right now but I'll definitely be spending some time on my day off trying to make it sound even better.Tomorrow I'm gonna take it to the guys to finish up. They'll be adding fans, cleaning up the wiring, etc. After debating on placement for the large tweeters, I decided to go with fiberglassing them to the sail panels. Hopefully it works out.

Thanks. I wasn't sure how I'd like the 8's considering it's the first time I've used 8's but they sound really clean and I'm not missing the low end like I thought I would. I'll post some pics tomorrow or the day after. The amp rack and everything else should pretty much be done by then.

The tweeters will be the most challenging part to install and integrate with the car.

Ok the install is done for now. However, we're going to be building another amp rack with a complete false floor, fans, and more circulation. We didn't have enough room for fans and no location for them to push the hot air out. I was really pushing the system yesterday and didn't have any issues with the JL amps or MS-8 although they do get very hot. The Boston sub amp heats up pretty bad too since it's right against the seats behind the sub box, it also can be that it's wired down to 1.5ohms and it's a 2ohm stable amp. Plays fine for a good while but it does eventually shut off for a couple minutes if I'm really cranking on it (about 2 hours worth of playing it full tilt).



The subs sound AWESOME! Plenty of output and sound very clean doing it. The surprising part is that it looks like they can take more power before they reach peak excursion.

The tweeters were giving me the most trouble on this build because they were just too big. The stock locations on the doors were too small and they were to close in and didn't allow for good stage depth. The sail panels would've been nice but there was no room and fiberglassing them would've made them stick out too far. We decided to go with the a-pillar which I was pretty worried about because somehow the car doesn't allow you to take them completely off and I knew they'd be a pain to replace. Screw it, we did it anyway and they actually came out pretty decent. They don't sit as flush as I would've like but I'll be wrapping them soon which will definitely help with that. Really happy with the way the tweeters sound in that location.



The frontstage sounds excellent, if not for a slight ring that I have to eq out from the stock rear speakers, I'd say it's just about SQ competition ready and that was with only about an hours worth of tuning last night. Along with the new amp rack in the future I'll be replacing the rears with some better mids and sound deadening those locations as well. Overall, I'm very impressed with the system and at full tilt it doesn't drop below 12v.



Ryan has more pics of the actual build that he'll be posting up but here's the final layout of the system:

There was a holder for sunglasses that flips down and since I never use sunglasses I figured that would be the best location for the volt meter and that way I can flip it back up out of the way as well.

With some velcro I mounted the ms-8 screen in the little cubby hole near the center console. I put it in that location because it's out of the way enough, I'm always messing around with settings etc., and that way I have quick access to it and I'm still able to see the screen from a normal seated position. With some padded double sided tape, I mounted the remote right next to it. With the USB stick, Aux in coming from my Ipod for video, my cell phone charger, the MS-8 screen and remote, it's a little cluttery but it's not too bad, not enough to be an eye sore.

Here's a couple more pics and notes from Ryan the installer:


Alright, So this time around we focused more on the little things like cleaning up the wires and what not, so not as many pictures, we got the center mid in, the subs and gt2300 in and changed out the distribution blocks, got the door sealed off with some 1/8" mdf, ran the volt meter and the bass knob. unfortunately i was alone one day so was stressing to get it done so fast i forgot to take a lot of pictures, but my partner even split from moving into his new house to help me get it finished, hopefully he chimes in soon, i guess he cant figure out how to use the site.



Anyways onto the pictures!

As you can see there was very little room to mount the center mid, just wasn't gonna happen.

We figured the only way to get it in, was from the bottom!

Made a baffle for it, we wanted to do it out of some 1/8" sheet metal but time wasn't on our side. So the 1/8" mdf will suffice, we were skeptical that it would flux too much, but it wasn't a problem! it looked cleaner when we got it flush but the stock screen was still hitting it, so we had to mount under the plastic trim.

Subs went in, i must say unless you have patience do not get one of these amps, the bass knob is very cheezy and if you dont insert the bass knob perfect it bends the connectors inside and then you have to take the time to line them all back up perfect to get it to work.

I spaced on pictures of the volt meter, bass knob, MS-8 screen and tweeters, but Lois got those so no big deal.



My thoughts on the setup:

I am by no means and SQ guy nor have i heard very many SQ setups, but i must say, Lois pieced this one together very well. I am beyond impressed with the way it sounds and how loud those 8's got, between the right equipment, the car itself, and the box built by Vitveet it sounds great. It sounds very solid outside of the car with very little to no rattling, and the front stage is crystal clear, i will be having Lois help me piece together a front stage because he built something very close to what i would like, not too harsh and just loud enough! Those mids in the doors are putting in work, and sound great doing it. We are very thankful we got to do the install even though the car put up a fight every step of the way (Lois got a taste if it yesterday) and we got to mess with some cool equipment. Also Lois hopped in yesterday to help get those tweets in which was real cool of him, seeing how it was like 90 degrees out and i was workin alone. Cool guy, and full of knowledge and very understanding, we scratched his tint, and he almost wouldn't let us replace it. Regardless of all the the cuts and swearing it was a fun build, and was well worth it. Hopefully he gets a video up soon.

I'll get some videos of the sub stage and frontstage playing when I get back from Las Vegas and get a car wash. For now, time to get drunk....

Just a little update, I had some hid lights put in for the foglights and I mounted the amp somewhere that I wouldn't have to constantly unscrew everything to add different subs or get to my amps/ms8.

I know my foglights are a little different than the headlights but I guess due to the smaller housing in the foglights it changes the color up a little bit?

Alright I'm done messing around! I got a new 12", probably one of many 12's I'll be swapping in and out for. 12" BL w/ 4 inch voice coil will be the first to be installed.



I also really miss my 3way frontstage, main reason being the midbass impact from a dedicated 8" mid. I was thinking about putting a set of 6 1/2" drivers under the seats but I don't think I have enough room and I really don't want them to pull the soundstage back. So I've decided I'm going to a shop to have some 9" Morels fiberglassed into the doors or 8's if I don't have enough room. These are the 9's I was looking at: Speaker Building Supplies from Madisound (http://www.madisoundspeakerstore.com/approx-8-woofers/morel-caw938-9-woofer/)



Hopefully I can get this all done within the next 2 months or so.

I'm still baffled at how you essentially threw away a P99....
Other than that, great build. I had to install in my '09 Hyundai and I know what a hassle it is and how much they fight you every step of the way. My deepest sympathies are with you man. But it seems to be turning out really good! I don't know why you even bothered with the JL subs haha, I knew from the beginning those wouldn't last.

Honestly subs never last in my cars...lol. They sounded awesome and had decent output, they just didn't get loud enough or low enough for my personal tastes. I would've been happy running 3 of them though.

Been a while since the last update but I got the Fi BL installed and it sounded awesome and got pretty **** loud! I decided to start getting a little 12" sub collection going since it's pretty easy to swap out. Picked up the custom built AV2 12" Zeuslicious (Chris) here on the forums was selling and wow, he really does some great work and the sub is a beast! He's come a long way since his first recone. He needs to start making more 12's for me to pick up instead of all those **** 15's I can't fit.

Anyway, the pics are pretty crappy but it's just to give you an idea. I'll get better pics and vids up soon.
