    Re: Scion tc daily driver to show worthy project

    Finally managed to neaten up the wires and run the power wire to the alternator.



    I need to get anchors for the front wires. Doctor has me on glucosamine so my hands are not hurting as much.
    New measurements with the power cable to the alternator replaced:
    Test Before. After. Today
    Battery. 12.38. 12.69. 13.72
    Alternator. 13.61. 13.44. .......
    Dist block. 13.18. 13.20 13.38

    Got the mid ranges in finally
    Cut inserts from polypropelene plastic(?)

    Then mounted mids

    Got both ready for install

    and installed them in the heat ducts. (dont drive it in cold weather)

    I will take the factory vent trim ring and wrap it in black speaker cloth.

    edit^^^^^ not flimsiness of the plastic but rather it not being mounted securely.

    It is mounted from behind it isVERY secure. But I do thank you for the concern, and it is a valid concern based on what you see.

    I also bench tested the mid's far harder than I will play them at for vibration .

    Got the drivers side door on with rivets, need to paint them black next.

    I used long neck rivets

    Even without sound processing, just using the amp, the 3 ways sound AMAZING!!!!!

    nice work. I see your using a circuit breaker.. if thats for your audio power i would advise against it, they dont break contact fast enough in such applications

    It's not for protection, the stereo is fused another place. it is for quick disconnect so the dealership doesn't accidentally start it with volume on or mess with it.
