    Elantra Gt 2004 Premium build log

    There's not alot of Hyundai cars around here. I think there's only 2-3 build logs somewhere that's all. I bought that car few weeks ago and so far i can't really complain with anything. Ride smooth and pretty luxurious for what it is. Interior in leather and everything is electrical which is a major upgrade from the car i've owned.

    here's what going inside:


    -Radio Clarion Dxz756mp
    -Equalizer Clarion 7 bands parametric with blue illumination (like headunit)


    -Image dynamics ctx65cs in front door
    -Stock on hu on rear


    -2 15inch Aq2.5 (old usa made model)

    -Hifonics2006d @1ohm on subs
    -Mb Quart pab4100 : 300watt x2 @4ohm

    -Enerwatt Agm 110ah battery in the rear. That ***** weight 75lbs.
    -Stinger 200amp selenoid isolator

    -80ft/cu damplifier, thanks to Ant for the great Int. shipping
    -2 dynaxorbs behind ctx65cs mids
    -Stock 90amp alt (looking on a rewind soon)
    -0/1ga from Knuconcepts

    So far only my bxi2006d amplifier is installed, but the drop are a lot less than on my old car with the same equipment. Alty will be ok for now.

    At first i wanted to take 100pics.. but due to my camera being half-broke, I only took 12ish...




    The Car: Elantra gt 2004 Premium


    Stock headunit and look. Doesn't sound that bad being a stock system. 2 way comps with ok tweeter placement = job done. nothing more though



    Clarion DXZ765mp. Not a lot of equalizing function, but it does look pretty nice. Random videos of nothing in particular plays in loop. Othewise it look pretty clean. I had a double din socket so i put the 1din hu with 1/2 eq with some fake leather dvd box wrap. Doesn't look that bad in real life. Aux in plug going behind the hu. I'm hooking a cowon d2 with some additional eq capacities.


    Trunk before deadener


    Some done



    Almost done



    Lid



    Pretty much all my fingers were cut after that day. I was loosing so much blood I had to stop.

    Front doors


    deadened with hidden 3/4mdf baffle as a spacer

    The other door

    I'm so not working at my workplace... i couldn't believe how tired my body was from working on my car 8hr+ per day... I had a lof of beer during those times

    I had to cut some of the door panel to make the tweeters fit. I hate doing this on my new car. Everything was ok in the end. I'm glad i made it.



    Sub enclosure. The build is kinda short... so no pics on my building it Well its 6.5 net tuned around 37-38hz. 114.75inch/sq of port area. A lot more port area than my last one with similar dimension (will review lower)



    Carpeting job.

    Re: Elantra Gt 2004 Premium build log

    box in the hatch. fit perfectly and hatch does close. That was my worst worry.



    Looking in the rearview



    So that's pretty much it. I'm sorry that there's not a lot building details... my camera would take 4 pics out of new batteries before shuting down

    The spare batt and isolator are in the pit wheel. Secure somehow

    I had a lot of trouble getting my 1/0 to the rear and there was almost no space to work with. I still have to put my crossover and get wire through the door. That job seems hard since there's no space in the grommet and there's some connector stuck in those. I really don't want to break anything, so i'll be patient.
    Right now, the ids are running of the stock wire and on my hu amp. The highs are ok the mids don't really shine like it should... i'll be giving them over 10x that power soon
    tough


    The subs sound great in the current box, but they were a lot "sharper"on the same box volume at 36hz with 3/4 of the port area i've used this time. It sound a lot more "boomy" then the other one. From what i've heard so far, it seems to peak in the high 30ish and drop just over 45hz. It doesn't sound flat at all after that. Maybe i'll find a way to work my port area somehow... It's not that bad, but they were sounding better in my old car. At least, there's actually no rattling at all. I recommand damplifier to anyone. Great product.

    Port is blowing on the near right side behind the wheel wing. It got a lot of cleareance.

    I just edited my last post. They sounded quite better with less port area, but they are definitively louder now. No one with a TL in Quebec lol I guess most shop don't even know what TL mean lol
    eer
    Also these subs are awesome playing below the tuning freq. They does move a lot of air around 24-25hz... even if the box is on the little side and tuned high

    Compared to the 18Q i had before, i loved the sound of the sd2.5 better. They still hit every freq the Q was hitting, but in a more punchiest way... They're getting 2x louder too.

    Also i'll seal the door hole soon. It does take a lot of time and I was getting ill. Manual work ain't for me

    Re: Elantra Gt 2004 Premium build log

    oh and i'm not using any ssf filter at the moment. They don't seems to complain. Pretty solid subs. I think Dj states that they sound better than the hdc on music.

    Also if anyone got an idea on how to reduce port size without changing the tuning to much, help me!
    I can't really cut the port lenght or add more since the box is already glued

    Re: Elantra Gt 2004 Premium build log

    yeah the high tuning is what keeps me away from running them.
    but i have heard a 9515 in 32hz, did its job.

    I was worried at first too. but everyone says to not worry. It's peaking around the tuning freq, while other subs often peaks 5hz higher than the box tuning freq and don't play that well under it. At least from those i've heard

    My frontstage ain't amplified for now so i can't really tell. Otherwise, the subs sound pretty good and they're freaking loud. I did some testing with throw it up at 70% of it normal speed and the bass was still hitting pretty hard and ****ing low.

    The rearview mirror ain't shaking that much though it's weird. It was shaking 10x more in my accent, even if it sounded more quiet

    I'll take a vid or two wednesday

    Re: Elantra Gt 2004 Premium build log

    well i'm not sure on the box anymore. I want to reduce my port area. Any idea on how to do that without building a new box? Anything that i could use to block a part of the port?

    Re: Elantra Gt 2004 Premium build log

    just wondering, would i get a better midbass from sealing the few holes left in the front doors? still got like 6ft/sq of damplifier left... just in case

    Also everything is done now and it sound freaking good. I might switch the substage pretty soon though, i've had these subs for more than 2 months

    edit: I modified my box for a lower tuning and port area. It now sound 100x better

    Re: Elantra Gt 2004 Premium build log

    doors are finally fully sealed and the difference in midbass is astonishing!



    I lowered my hpf in the high 60s, while still giving the same amount of power. Sometime, i just shut my subs down and i'm seriously impress by what i'm hearing

    I also found my dynaxorb, but i installed them while sealing the doors, so i can't tell if it does makes any difference
