    these vifa are tough since you have to make your own grill. normal tweeters are MUCH easier to finish off.

    not bad, i want to get them finished a bit better

    So, now you are up to speed with this 6 year build and its many variations. Everything is subject to change and new front speaker locations are planned next – starting with new doors.

    I have a 02 honda accord and I thought this build was going to be inspirational, but instead it gave me a headache. All hats off to a clean install, but go ahead with your bad self. Just over kill to me. I hope its a great sounding SQ setup after all that labor.

    overkill is relative. it is an experiment. i've tried a lot of different things. all of the variations sounded good. But some were better than others. Non one in their right mind would do everything I did. Pick a few things and run with it. The second system with the Type-X comps was good and simple.

    The kicks have been a love/hate relationship, love the soundstage but hate the 120Hz resonance down there. I started tearing the doors apart today, undid the baffles and removed deadener around the opening, gonna cut it out larger and angle the driver mount up and back.

    Do you still use the PHX-H701 and RUX-C701 combo?

    actually, no i don't use the H701. I sold it and the controller. I loved using it, and i was tweaking with it (while driving) almost constantly. that was one issue - i tweak. another is noise - the darn things are noisy. lastly, i wanted to simplify. i do miss it sometimes, like when i had 10 drivers up front and played with 3 at a time - the H701 would have been handy there.

    but all of that processing isn't necessary. i remember how we rolled in the 90's and we were simpler. and it sounded great. i'm trying to use less processing and focus on install methods. i may be looking for some active 24dB/oct crossovers though. i've tried a lot of stuff in this car...

    so, onto some work i did last night...

    say good by to all of this effort


    that baffle was restricting rear airflow, and didn't allow for deeper woofers. this is for midbass - so size matters.

    removed the speaker baffle in the doors. removing the BXT was time consuming, luckily it was cold. i have 3-4 layers around teh speakers.


    i want to put larger woofers in, and the factory hole is too small, and the larger drivers are 3" deep. after test fits, i removed metal


    i quickly ripped out a ring (jig saw and 3/4" birch)


    and did a test fit with window down



    as far as depth goes -





    the new speaker mount will be 1" thick on top and about 2" thick on the bottom. i'll use 1/2" MDF and make a base then a ring, then fill and glass in place so i have a cone shaped mount that has plenty of airflow. i'll need to trim some door panel (in front of the pocket) then glass a new grill onto the door. my goal is for a factory look - so you'll just see a contiguous piece with an integral grill.

    like everything else in this car, i'm making it up as i go.



    have you been helped by me? i'd love to know. shoot me a PM.

    right now it would be a waste of money... it sounds decent but floor midbass is resonant so i have filters set to prevent it from being a huge issue. the door midbass will be nice, then i can redo the kicks for mids with better aiming. i am very excited to get the doors done... but today is a day to relax.
