    07 xterra build...... for the wifey

    ok as the title says, this build will be for a 07 Nissan xterra which is my wifes. I just finished up my truck(06 envoy) for now and so its time to start on hers. this build will be slow for now until we get our new floors laid which should happen next week but I have some pics of what I have done so far....

    anyways the equipment:
    2 12" AQ sdc2.5 d4 subs
    MB quart onyx 1600.1
    MB quart onyx 80.1
    Cadence momentum 6.5" comps
    Cadence momentum 6.5" coax 2ways
    Box will hopefully be around 4 cubes tuned at 36hz with a 6" round port(still trying to figure out the details....basically trying to squeeze out the 4 cubes)

    pics











    that's where I am at right now.... like I said before wont see progress until after the floors get done so this week I will be working on the numbers to try and get the 4 cubes or close to it......

    Re: 07 xterra build...... for the wifey

    @pro-rabbit

    what do you suggest the best way would be to make the plexi to appear an oval shape? i was thinking of doing a oval cutout and flush mounting the plexi into the base and then use the cutout to hold the plexi down and then fiberglassing it to the base.....

    Re: 07 xterra build...... for the wifey

    There are a few ways.

    1. Just use a trim plate to get the oval look

    2. Cut the plexi yourself then install in which ever method works best

    3. Combination of both 1 and 2.


    When doing custom installs there is not always a right/wrong way of doing things. More of a what works best for your skills, tools, and what look you are going for.

    Re: 07 xterra build...... for the wifey

    The easiest way would be to...

    screw the plexi down to it's location.... then do a trim panel over it with the cutout in the size and shape you want... be sure to rabbit the edge though to hide the material you wrap it with.

    He is a very basic retangle plexi but mounted behind a trim panel... (it is screwed to the the trim itself) using the rabbit edge we hid the seem of the carpet..
