    Phers1er's build log...

    I'm in the process of rebuilding my system and figured why not post a few pics.
    There really has not been a game plan..... I'm kind of making things up as I go and hoping for the best. Any reasonable suggestions would be most appreciated.



    my system will be installed in my P.O.S. 02 cavalier and will consist of

    1-rockford fosgate 3sixty.2
    1- set hertz hsk 165 comps
    3- rockford fosgate 25th anniversary punch 150's
    and a pair of SSA Icon 15's(awaiting recones at the momment.)

    So far I have made some mounting brackets for the hertz mids and my amp rack.
    more pics and updates will follow but I don't have alot of time to work on my car
    so finishing this will be slow going.

    Here is how I made my caveman brackets.







    The green marks the angle I want cut from the bracket








    here's the comps.

    The amp rack was finished before I decided to post this stuff up so the best I can do is show how it is constructed.
















    next: I'll be installing comps.
    hopefully some time this week if its not too hot.

    Re: Phers1er's build log...

    Started on the doors today...
    Passenger side.

    knu Konceptz 12 ga. wire






    4 lbs. of black non-drying clay




    The little nylon spacers are to keep the dust cap from hitting the door panel.(for some reason it sticks out a little further than the mounting flange



    I also added some 1/2" foam to the inside of the door panels (sorry no pics).
    So far the doors seem pretty solid.

    What's the purpose of the clay?

    It also adds mass/weight...which deadens the sheet metal further.
