    Icon12 2 12" Ported + 6.5" Component Set Install in Chevy Prizm

    Hello everyone,
    Helping a friend out and doing what I can with his budget to give some character to his '97(?) Chevy Prizm.

    His equipment (given to him for free by his cousin) includes:
    Pioneer DEH-1600 headunit
    (2) 12" Infinity Reference "1240w" subwoofers
    Kicker KX250.2 amp

    Wiring already "completed" - More on that later.

    In addition, I sold him a set of BNIB 6.5" Memphis PR component speakers.



    First up is the box. I have decided to give painting a try, as I've always carpeted enclosures (or left bare MDF) in the past. As the Kicker amp is underpowering even these subs, I've decided to give the 12's a bit more space. Box specs - 3.2 Ft^3 tuned to 35hz, with a 54 in^2 port.


    First Cut



    Coming Together



    Spray Primer for the Port



    Screws countersunk



    Screws Covered in Wood Putty and Sanded




    Paint Test Board. Port is Enamel, the Exterior of the Enclosure will be Textured




    More to come. Thanks for taking a look, and of course, any advice is wholeheartedly welcomed.

    Finished today, didn't have time to do everything I wanted because he needed his car returned. Also, didn't have my phone to take pics of some progress, or funny findings, like the ground wire which was attached to factory deadening. But he is happy and I now know how to paint a box


    Routed Port Edge



    Cut Down With Dremel for Clearance


    Extended Tweeter Wiring


    Weather Proofed with Primer, Dynamat Behind Speaker


    His Custom Doorhandles (lol) and Tweeters Mounted


    I Cut the Ziptie


    Paint Texture, No Seams/Screws Visible


    Box Fit in Without 1/8" to Spare!

    Thanks for looking
