    Ford Ranger Image Dynamics Build

    Hey Online community! Don from image and im posting this thread to log my progress, post pictures, ask QUESTIONS, and get some feedback from you guys!

    Vehicle:
    2002 Ford Ranger Daily Driver

    Equipment:
    Pioneer AVH-p4200DVD
    Processing: JBL MS8
    Electrical - Audison Connection 1/0 and 4awg
    Tsunami 1/0 in (2) 4AWG out distros
    Front Stage - (2)Vifa BC25SC06-04
    (2)Image Dynamics CXS62 v1
    Substage - (4) Image Dynamics ID8 D2 (few tweaks done to the drivers for better coil cooling)

    Amplification - Kicker SX500.2 & Q450.4


    Build Plans: I plan on Glassing the pods into my HORRID plastic door pannels. Ford really screwed up on the panel design IMO. Tweeters will be in the A-pillars in PVC Pods. Credit to the $2 tweeter pod thread! Back seat of the truck will be gone. Complete covered by subwoofer enclosure and amp rack. Enclosure Currently designed @ .62ft^3 PER DRIVER for the four 8's. Im probably missing something here but this should be a fun little install.

    Onto the tweeter pods which i did about a year ago :p



















    AAAND i completely pulled the newb act of not rabetting FTL

    Have i said enough how much i hate finish work? BUT its a must to take your time and be patient and go over with filler as many times as need be to make it perfect!

    First off i went through on each panel and sanded the edges down to make it a easier transition with the filler. I also sanded the outside fleece. all with 40 grit then 60 grit.


    somewhat still green in some areas



    finished drivers side ready for vinyl. All edges nice and smooth. finish sanded with 80grit as i will be vinyl wrapping them and I like to have some rough surface for spray adhesion.



    driver and passenger done


    the filler that i use on every project. not to expensive and sands oh so smooth!


    The filler tools that i use they are 1.99 at lowes/home depot. can be cut into any size/shape you want. I find the larger one works best even on the small areas! its cheaper than the bondo tool and if you break/mispalce them its not a $10 replacement

    Re: Ford Ranger Image Dynamics Build

    well my iphone decided to loose half of my pictures

    Its in and playing and sounding all **** like!

    Amp mounting holes. Went with threaded inserts so i can use security Bolts


    wiring all tidy


    door view


    still have a bit of cleaning up to do.



    Let me just say this..... WOW! the MS8 literally brings the Soundstage to life! lifts the mid ranges, smooths the tweets and blends the subs very nicely! I am overly pleased with the result of this built. So pleased this will be my last in this vehicle for some time to come. notice THIS vehicle

    Nice results on the tweeters cups.
    Black strews maybe so you don't get blinded while driving with a reflection off that those shiny heads..

    Re: Ford Ranger Image Dynamics Build

    well done on everything, especially the doors. i would have preferred to see the speaker mounted to a pod that adheres/seals to the door and the interior panel meet up so not to introduce vibrations into the panel, but the door panel looks rigid. your doors look much better than mine do. thank you for some inspiration.



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