Alright guys after a long time of saving and realizing how much of a fire hazard the previous things done by the all star installers in my local home town were, I decided to do my first build! A 3-way at that! Ok so most of this work is inspired by Ryan Slade so check him out.
Toyota Corolla 2005 CE
Audison LRx 5.1k
Audison LRx 2.4
Audison Thesis 3-way
Streetwires 1/0 Gauge kit, 14 gauge wire
Audison RCA Cables
Various Techflex sizes
US Composites Fiberglass
Somewhat of a Two Seat sound stage if possible (I know it's hard)
Retain Dashboard visibility!
Keep Spare Tire
Keep Space in Trunk and hide wires
Use the Thesis Grills
Keep midbass's in doors, Tweets in Pillars
Not tear apart my car TOO bad
Finally Upgraded the 4 gauge to a 1/0 Gauge, surprisingly easy to route underneath the carpet without any trouble. Beware of that beastly fast stock engine and 6 year old stock battery!
Ok during spring break a few weeks ago before the Central NC meet, I decided t attempt to fiberglass for the first time, and.......as you can tell it looks just like a first attempt hahah. Here are the pics:
Used a router for the first time with that sweet Jasper Cutting jig, used a ping pong table as a work bench too. The first initial idea looked good but when placed in the car, it just faced almost the corner of the windshield and sound reflected everywhere.
Decided to go with almost a "parallel plane" approach to conserve visibility when driving. (I have more process pics wasn't sure everyone wanted to see that mess )
Changed out the stock plastic cheapy rings for a birch one.
