    '03 CRV - Custom Box for Alpine Type R + MORE!

    Hey,
    My friend got a new car, '03 CRV, and wants to upgrade the stereo. I did her previous car so some of the parts will be new, some re-used.

    Equipment to be Installed:
    Alpine 9857 with iPod cable
    Directed Audio 600D - 600w @ 1ohm
    Alpine Type R 12" D2 (old style)
    2.5 ft^3, custom aeroport enclosure @ ~34Hz
    Memphis 6.5" PR Components
    Knukonceptz CCA 4awg wiring kit


    Old setup - 12" RD Classic in sealed enclosure


    Some of the new equipment


    The box w/o internal bracing modeled




    Box is angled to sit flush against rear seat


    I've never done a custom aeroport or any aeroport install so this should be a fun learning experience... Thanks for looking.

    Oh, and one more thing... She came with me to choose the port color. I think it might be funny to have a pink hole at roughly waist height when the hatch is opened. We'll see how it looks.. haha

    Quick update... All five hours of my work so far has gone into the mould, which will be resined tonight. More pics to come.


    All hand-sanded to this point

    Used a Dremel to get a rough shape, now ready for finishing sanding

    Re: '03 CRV - Custom Box for Alpine Type R + MORE!

    Most of the install is complete, except for the new box. I've been busy so I put her old sub/box in for the meantime. I can say that the CR-V gets loud, even the 12" RD Classic in a sealed box @ 2ohm (receiving ~400w) pounds, especially when the box is moved about 3-4" from the hatch. Here are some pics I managed to take during the installation.



    I dremel'd down the ring terminal so it would fit on the stock battery terminal

    She had to drive her car after the power wire was run. It got dirty

    Wasn't paid to do any sound deadening but I couldn't help putting a couple squares behind the speakers... I'm sure it helps!

    The 3/4" MDF adapter plates were primered for water resistance, but the window BARELY touched the speaker magnet when the speaker was installed. I decided to attach some weatherstripping I had to provide clearance.

    I had to run the stock speaker wiring through the panel so I added a hole and grommet.

    Forgot to take pictures of the amp fully installed, sorry!

    Finished Front Door

    Finished Rear Door

    Thanks.. found some more pics on my phone of the front door. Tweeters were attached from the rear with hot glue. I was skeptical at first at the glue's ability to hold but from now on I will be using it, very easy and very secure, especially when the tweeter cutout is so tight that it snaps into place.
