    Re: 2001 Accord EX Sedan - it's long

    after 700 miles of listening (in the past 24 hours) i am very, very happy. they speakers sound great. excellent midbass. SOOOO much better than the floors were. doors are silent, no rattles or buzzed. not thrilled with them above 1kHz (despite having a "smooth response" to 5kHz). this may likely be the door itself.

    sound stage is still good. not as deep as it was with floor midbass but close. the improvement in tonality is worth it. i will adjust the mids next.

    I need to get my mids more on-axis to improve response from 1kHz-3kHz. they loose too much detail being that far off-axis. and they roll off at 3kHz. not that i want a lot more from them, but I do want the ability to increase tweeter/mid crossover points.



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

    hell, just the other day i went through it. like a trip down memory lane for me. i still can't believe i've done half this stuff. the TB wall alone was such an effort. now i just enjoy it, forgetting how much **** effort it was.

    it's nice once you finish somthing you like, you don't think about it anymore. but the stuff you don't like haunts you. my doors were haunting me.

    Re: 2001 Accord EX Sedan - it's long

    I'm gonna try something out - i recorded the system in the Accord using a Zoom H2 stereo recorder. The Zoom H2 has built-in compression (which was set on Studio) and four mics (i used the front 2). Held at my neck while i drove from work to home. It's about a 5 minute drive so enough time for a song. Windows up, A/C on.

    320kbps mp3 due to file size (12mb) being reasonable.

    Jurassic 5 - Power In Numbers - "React" and "A Day at the Races"
    the pause at 2:31 is me changing the 9887 T/A preset from 2 seat (equal left and right) to 1 seat (aligned to driver's seat)

    I don't normally listen to hip-hop, but since most of you do, I started with this.

    Re: 2001 Accord EX Sedan - it's long

    I added three more tracks to the folder above.

    Tool - Ticks and Leeches
    Tool - Right In Two
    Pink Floyd - The Wall Disc 2 (3 tracks)

    All while driving 65 on the interstate. i should probably replace them with recordings done in my garage so the noise floor is a bit lower, but it gives a good indication of what deadening has done to lower noise. it's fairly quiet for interstate driving in a Honda.

    Any feedback is appreciated. Let me know if this effort is a waste of time.

    Re: 2001 Accord EX Sedan - it's long

    I listened to one of the pink floyd tracks, it sounds good to me. Considering that it sounded good coming through my laptop speakers it should be really good in the car. Might have to steal my kids headphones to listen to the other tracks.

    Re: 2001 Accord EX Sedan - it's long

    Yea, full range headphones help. The bass reproduction is decent given the mic choice.

    What I think is neat is the recording is in stereo using a stereo mic arrangement, so the recordings produce an image similar to that in the car, when played on a capable system.

    Re: 2001 Accord EX Sedan - it's long

    this is something i haven't seen in a build log yet. pvc encased fiberglass absorption. i've seen people use foams or polyfill but those have issues. foams aren't absorptive enough (especially if they are closed cell). polyfill isn't absorptive much as-is. the doors get wet so any fibrous material will hold water = mold.

    in architectural acoustics, we use pvc encased fiberglass batt to cheaply add a lot of absorption to a room.

    i've had this idea for a while, finally felt like doing it.

    i started with 1 mil PVC sheeting - it is normally used as a drop cloth for painting. it was stupid cheap, like $3 for a roll. i have some fiberglass batt insulation as well. fiberglass batt is one of the absolute best materials for sound absorption. just about anything else performs worse. the concern is that you don't want it getting wet.

    i measured my doors, they have two metal tubes that provide structural strength. i will fit absorption between these. if i had 2" thick bags, they wouldn't interfere with the window. my doors were already sealed up, luckily i used several smaller panels to cover the gap, so i just cut and peeled one of them back:



    i needed 6" tall, 30" long, and 2" thick bags. i cut out 18" tall by 33" long sheets of PVC.


    i wrapped and compressed it for covering. i used 3M Duct Packing Tape to create the seal.


    i made three of them for the passenger door


    then i placed them and used aluminum foil tape to hold them in place between the bars




    the window guide came down in the middle. this was a snag/tear possibility. so i covered that portion with aluminum foil tape to protect it.




    all done, 100% coverage along the entire outer door skin, with a fourth smaller bag stuffed up near the hinge airspace


    closed up with a few layers


    driver mounted.



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

    Re: 2001 Accord EX Sedan - it's long

    before i do the driver's side i'll use the RTA and 1/24th oct resolution to measure drivers (untreated) vs. passenger (treated). my measurement locations, driver settings, etc. will be equivalent enough to allow for an accurate comparison. the goal with this is to improve midrange response as well as absorb a nasty 125Hz (ish) spike. i hope to test tonight, then do the driver's door.

    if all goes as planned, i will recommend this for anyone sealing up their door. this was easy to do, took about 5 minutes per bag an would be very easy to do before the door is sealed if you're deadening it anyway. i expect this to greatly improve response for the door woofers.

    That was a great idea. I love this build log.

    Nice build thread to read, though it took me 2 days to get through it!! Has inspired me to make sure I'm doing a nice clean install like you.

    Learning lots here, Keep it up!

    thanks guys. it's a labor of love. i've seen better, but it sounds really good for the investment in equipment. once i finalize my speaker install/locations, i'll work on final cosmetics.
