    03 Audi A4 build log - Custom Stereo

    I am starting a build log for my new stereo build. I created my first custom stereo install last year (pictured below) and now i just ripped it out and starting all over again. This is a hobby for me and do this during my spare time. I hope by posting this, it will help generate ideas, questions and answers as i embark on a new adventure.

    Here is a list of hardware i am currently using.

    I.C.E
    Alpine W205
    Alpine PXA-H701 Multimedia Manager
    Alpine 1.1000
    Alpine 4.150
    Jl Audio 12w6v2
    Jl Audio ZR650-CSi
    1 Farad Stinger Cap
    Stinger accesories
    Dynamat Extreme
    Apple Itouch




    if anyone has any ideas, please pass along as i start the first phase: DESIGN

    sell the cap it's most likely hindering your system rather then helping it.

    Re: 03 Audi A4 build log - Custom Stereo

    What are your thoughts about firing the subs from each side, basically where the amps are in the picture above. I have a design in mind but was wondering your thoughts, does it cancel the bass bad and what would i be losing if compared to firing the into the back of the trunk. Im looking for good bass but also good design layout

    Re: 03 Audi A4 build log - Custom Stereo

    perhaps thinking of using some motorization on the amp rack, does anyone now of good motors or hardware?

    I would like to create a motorization that pivits the amp rack 90 deg like a door, can this be done using a linear actuator or a special motor set up?

    Thanks
