Finally finished my build last weekend. Car is a 2012 Civic Si Sedan. I still have to fully deaden the doors, clean up the mess of wires in the trunk, and carpet the sub box. I'm doing a 2-way active front setup with no rear fill. The box will probably be just a temp box, just wanted to get some low end in quickly. On to the build....sorry if the pics aren't that great they were done off my phone.

Equipment:

Fronts: Sundown SA-6.5CS
Processor: Rockford Fosgate 3sixty.3
Subs: 2x PG RSD10's
Amp: Alpine PDX-V9
-Factory sheet read 129x4 and 570x1 for the sub channel

Don't know what that red is on the right, but it must have been a reflection bc its not there on my car

Aftermarket tweeter. Hot glued the front of the tweeter casing, really the only option i saw fit, and the glue can be peeled off if need be later

This looks really clean. Can you explain how you mounted and wired your tweeters? I have a '13 civic and will be replacing the fronts with Morel Maximo's. My only problem is since they have passive crossovers, I'll have to mount them in the door somewhere but I don't know how to get the tweeter wires down through the a-pillar, through the boot, and into the door. Did you have problems? Any advice? Thanks!
