    The thing that made me switch the mid and tweeter was the little heater vent:




    Here is the clearance obviously not including the thickness of the mount:
    Straight forward with magnet touching windshield

    Angled upward with ring and magnet touching windshield

    Very nice work! That sub cutout with the jigsaw looks perfect!

    +1 on mids in the kick panel, that thing is beefy like cartman!

    How'd you make that little ashtray inlay for the ipod?

    I'll definitely mount it there for short term. Keep up with other location suggestions. I just gotta make an almost skin tight pod for the mids to try as many locations as possible... I haven't had ANY time this week at all. Since I haven't been keeping up with my assignment or even doing them early, school has been kickin my butt.

    It used to be a cup holder.. a ****** place for one imo since it is directly in front of the radio. I never used it so I kept the sides and carved out the middle, iirc 1/2" mdf and a router.

    When I replace the HU, I might be feelin a big ZUNE.... hope theyre not too thick.

    Re: Build log for 1996 Lumina LS- The Blue Fury

    Small update:

    Installed the 880 and boxed up the 490 to install in my other car at a much later time. After fiddling with it and learning how to use some of the options, (not yet even applying all of them) I love it! The iPod adapter is kinda slow, but its definitely tolerable. It's not as bad as the people that write terrible reviews make it seem. Also the built in volt meter reads .3 volts higher than my DMM reads so I'll have to remember that in case it ever becomes necessary.

    No time to work on mounting the speakers last week, its not looking good this week either thanks to school.

    Re: Build log for 1996 Lumina LS- The Blue Fury

    School has been a ***** and sleep has been out of reach because of it. That's why no progress in almost a month except for today.

    In case I forgot to say, the sub and the sub amp has been out for a WHILE now, I think even before I put the 800 in. In that time, I sold both RF T1k's and bought a SAZ-3kd. All 3 of the sundown amps are sitting in my room on my sub box because I have yet to build the rack for them.
    I was really wanting to built a sweet looking one where they all have their back against the sub box and angle down on each other but I don't see a point since the box for the next subs will allow NO room for it. It will look kinda plain, just to serve as a rack and nothing to look at. Either way, it'll take time I don't really have.

    So in the meantime, I'm trying to take care of the little things. Today I relocated the ground from the panel connecting the trunk floor to the back seat to the frame. It was more of a ***** than I thought it would be but it's in and it's super secure. I didn't think it was worthy of pictures since it's not much of anything... so maybe next time.

    Re: Build log for 1996 Lumina LS- The Blue Fury

    I can't really do a whole lot until I get the 2nd trunk battery from the seller and relocate them both, make the fuse holders and terminals once I get the lexan from the other seller to put the all wiring in. Then once that's done, make the amp rack and put all the amps in and finally hook up the speakers. The thing I can work on is the temporary mounts for the speakers. So with that said...

    About an hour on the jigsaw got me these:




    I'm treading in unsure waters now, I couldn't think of an easier way to make a mount just a hair bigger than the speaker itself. I hope this clay idea works out. I used a rolling pin to flatten out some play clay to <1/4". Saran wrap of the speaker to protect it was about the only precaution I could think of.




    **** it's ugly but looks weren't a concern of mine since a) it's the 1st layer and b) the are temporary.


    I figure one more layer of mat on the outside, then I'll remove the clay. After that, 2 layers on the inside to keep the outside thickness down. We'll see how it goes from there.

    Re: Build log for 1996 Lumina LS- The Blue Fury

    For the past couple of weeks, I've been working on finishing the electrical in my car- one of the most major steps to this is mounting the second battery.


    Taped off ( no foil ), first layer and second layers




    The few pics below are of the anchors to keep the battery mold securely in place.




    6 in total, only used 4.



    Since I used tape for the FG, it was a huge pain in the butt to get out. I tried delicately at first with just my hands and backing off when I heard little cracks, but it never budged for about 45 minutes. It took a crowbar to get it out with really small damage to one area and negligible damage a few inches to the side. And after I got it out, it took about 2 HOURS to get maybe 85% of the adhesive left from the masking tape off of the metal. I was NOT happy.

    It looks bad but I call it minor since it wont affect anything and that part is hidden.

    Anchors bolted in from the bottom


    Actual batteries in the bags. What you can't see is a 1/2" wood platform on the bottom of the common side for the batteries to share and rubber supports on each corner where battery meets FG. For some reason, I thought 1 can of expanding foam would be enough. I emptied it and ran to home depot for another 2 cans.




    Batteries out, now you can see the platform and rubber supports.



    Top is cut to almost flat


    I had some 1/2" mdf laying around.. perfect for an aesthetic top.
