    2014 Subaru WRX build

    Ok, so here we go again... New car, new system. I didn't finish my last build log, this will get finished because I actually plan on keeping this car. Not going for huge numbers, just a daily beater with some decent sq but who knows what it will evolve to. In the early stages so bare with me.

    Here are the plans in a nut shell, haven't finished making all of the gear selections just yet so ideas and suggestions are welcome.

    Head unit: Pioneer DEH-80PRS

    Front stage speakers: Don't know yet, definitely 3 way active, thinking a CDT set up

    Amplification: 2x Alpine PDX-V9, 6 channels will be used for front stage, 2 for rear fill, sub channels are self explanatory

    Sub stage: took advantage of getting 2 funkin audio SX 12"s really cheap to use as temporary subs until I decide on a preeminent solution. Going to run them in a sealed enclosure for now.

    I have the deck in and the big 3 done so far, more to come soon. Thanks @mylows10 for hanging out yesterday and helping out with the big 3.

    Sorry, was a bit dark outside


    Wiring harness is all wired up

    Also installed my new Perrin radiator shroud, radiator stays, and alternator cover




    Connection at the alternator for the big 3


    The 2 ground connections at the negative terminal


    Chassis ground


    The techflex I used blends well with the factory stuff

    I decided the positive lead on the alternator could use some protection, it kind of sticks out in the engine bay like a sore thumb


    Using plastidip to provide some barrier


    First coat


    The plastidip is still drying, will post up a pic tomorrow of the final product.

    Not audio related but the stock shift and e-brake boots were made of material that was the same quality of a Walmart plastic bag


    Terrible


    So I installed a short shifter and alcantara with red stitching shift and e-brake boots, matches the seats and looks so much better.

    Yea, I need to talk to Jim, He can get almost anything. I don't think I need anything crazy, 200 amps should be more then sufficient to run 2 alpine V9 amps.

    I have done 3 heavy coats so far, going to hit it with 3-4 more coats when I get home. I am going to try and get it thick enough to make it hard to tell that there is a nut and bolt under there.

    How much altering are you planning on doing to your panels for your front stage?
