    Icon6 California 370Z Install

    First off I want to thank Derek for showing me the best time I have ever had on a trip. You are the best man.:tup: Second for those of you that may no know, I was flown to California Orange County for a install on a 370z. I have to say it was simply awesome. Also for those of you looking to upgrade your front speakers and think you are limited to a few speakers. Your not! the spacer rings that z closures makes can be used over top of the existing plastic spacer already there. So without further a due here is the install! Enjoy and please feel free to comment and ask questions.

    The Ride




    The loot


    Power wire ran threw stock grommet takes a bit of time but can is the best place for it.



    Dash apart and head unit mounted to brackets.

    Factory tweeter and modding time. Using a dremel I shaved and trimmed out the factory tweeter.


    The new ID tweeter


    Almost looks like it belongs there hu?


    The back end


    Hmm almost like some sort of super tweeter

    Door panels off


    This is why factory is no good LOL


    The ID cxs components the woofers need 3 inches of clearance for the magnet.



    Using the z closure spacers and installing them with some bigger bolts you can fit just about any speaker in your door, just as long as you shave some of the ring off were the bolt goes the door panel fits perfectly with a good amount of clearance.


    IT IS NICE!

    REAL NICE


    Putting the panels back on


    Work work work

    Because he likes how I solder and heat shrink wires and I take my time on a install. The main reason was that I have already worked on 3 370z's and the installers out there have not touched one yet.

    I did but he already took the spare tire out to save weight he is not looking to add much more weight plus it is pretty quite.

    Re: California 370Z Install

    all componant installs should be soldiered and heat shrunk

    ...at least I do.

    as for the enclosure, why not just opt for a prefab one? It looks idential to yours.
