    Small Build: Mazdaspeed 3, E8s

    This is just a small build to add boom boom to my zoom zoom.

    Two E8s
    1.6 cu ft. @ 32 hz
    Absolute EVD-2200 @ 2 ohms ~600w

    For the build log on the box, refer to this thread:
    http://carstereoforum.net/showthread.php?t=1775

    Here's the last picture i took of the amp


    E8s






    Power Wire run

    This has been split loomed and going to install the fuse holder later


    The grommet for the firewall


    All the way in the trunk


    The LOC. It's actually hidden behind that plastic panel, makes it easy to take out and adjust if i need to.


    Comments?

    Re: Small Build: Mazdaspeed 3, E8s

    if you want, I have a pair of JL audio evolution vr690 cxi
    Good mid bass, they're 6x9's. great condition

    I also have a panasonic cq rx400u headunit, nice design, matches the mazda emblem well. I used it for a little while in my 02 protege.
    specs here:
    http://www.crutchfield.com/p_133CQRX...ures_and_specs

    has front aux and usb port, can play flash drives, ipods, mp3 players, cds. Charges ipods through the usb port while it plays.

    cd players in perfect condition, comes with box, manuals, original receipt, mounting brackets/sleeve. I can give you a pair of DIN tools and the dash kit too if you want.

    pm me if interested.

    Re: Small Build: Mazdaspeed 3, E8s

    Finished installing everything

    I messed up the box d_man1 made for me cuz i touched the paint while it was still dry. I sanded it and instead of repainting, I cut a piece of acrylic to size and painted the back side of that red. I also added the red strip around the box just to make it stand out more.



    I attached the amp to the back of it and drilled holes by the speakers terminal to hook them up


    And here it is in my car, fits like a glove and looks amazing pictures really dont do it justice.




    Here's a really crappy video taken from my phone:

    i love it

    only downside is the mpg, but as long as your not racing everywhere, u'll be fine. I was gonna get the 2010 one, but the dealership didnt wanna lower the price from 3k OVER sticker price. Install was relatively easy.

    I'll take some better ones later on. That video was with bass -1 and fade on F2 (i have the subs spliced into the rear channel). Also that song wasnt the greatest. Once i know how these subs handle, i'll take a better one.

    Nice. I am curious how you got the PAC OEM1 to the kick panel. I have a 2010 MS3 and put my PAC in last week, and the wires arent long enough to reach that far.

    it's not the kick panel. It's the plastic to the right of the stereo. And this PAC is the one that connects right into the factory wiring, no need to splice anything. Im not sure if the one i have fits 2010 or if they've made one for the 2010 yet.

    I have the same exact PAC, no change to 2010. ALready installed and working perfect. To the right of my stereo is the glove box and no where to put it. Darn.
