    2004 Honda Civic SI Type R -- Budget Wall Build

    Alright, so I'm going to attempt to start my own build log and we'll see how this turns out lol. Pretty pumped and excited to see how this is going to turn out and can't wait to share it with you guys! Just check in every now and then to see updated pictures. This is going to be a slow build... sorry. Gonna be about a month before I'm done! Going to be lots of pics in this one, so be prepared!

    Mark from Car Audio Fabrications will be designing the enclosure for me! Big thanks to him for being patient and helping me out.

    Anyways, here's my car. It's a daily driver!

    Thanks! I took a chance with the camera. I know they make ****** speakers, but I've honestly never heard about their other products. I went on a limb with the camera hoping it would work as well as the people on the reviews said it would! We'll see...

    Installed the door speakers! Sorry I didn't get any pictures. But here's a little test of them playing at a moderate volume. Was recorded from my phone, so that's why it's cut off. I'll fix that if I do more videos. Sound clean!

    Also... As I'm preparing for the wall in my hatch, is it really worth sound deadening the floor of where the rear seats and spare tire were? Would it really make that much of a difference with tons of wood on top, AND it walled off?

    Mark from Car Audio Fabrications finished the box design for me today! Huge thanks to him! He did a great job, and was extremely patient with me. I can't wait to build it. The outer layer of the baffle will be a bit different from the outer baffle in the picture since I'm going to build the outer baffle flush with the interior of my car for a complete seal off.
