    I was looking for specific features. I know the newer pioneer stuff isnt as nice as the earlier stuff, but It was a pretty good deal. I didnt want to keep hunting for something. If I do change this in the future, it will be for a top of the line audiophile head unit. Certainly this pioneer is better than the oem.

    So you have a sub in the trunk and two fosgates or what?

    Talk me through your 8(?)s in the door You just screwed(glued?) the baffle to the door. Glassed to for a little contour for more oem look? What about deadening. What about sealing to the actual door? Seems like your trying to rattle your door card to pieces



    Gain on an amplifier to meant to be matched to the output voltage of your headunit. Think 3 volt, 4 volt, 5 volt pre out specs you see on headunit specs. This is how gain works for a given pre out(5 volt) theoretically. However most head units clip(start to distort) at around 80% of your volume so your 5 volt pre out wont give 5 volts Cleanly. You will most likely get 4 volts out at something like 33/40 on your volume knob and would thus set your gain to 4 volts. (these things can be measured with a GOOD Multimeter. )
    80% of your total volume is (max volume) X 0.8.
    Example is 40(is your max volume so, 40 X .8=32

    lol...so many sub choices to choose from tho...genius.

    Want sq? The Focal sub will take care of that. A little more bass/low bass, the twin 6.5s subs....more SPL, the RF will def do that.

    The Focal sub is disconnected. The Frosgate 15s are the only subs playing right now.
    The JBL 8s: I stacked baffle rings, glued, then used kitty hair to bond to panels. Then I made baffle rings contoured to the front side of the door panel for a flat mounting surface. I attach jbl midbass to the door with lag screws. I attach panel to the door and couple wooden baffles to the door speaker opening. The Door has deadener all on the inner and outer skin sealing it and the inner cavity has denim ultra touch insulation wrapped in plastic for rear wave sound absorption.

    These doors are sturdy solid as ****.

    Re: Subzero's 2016 Cruze SQ Build Log

    If you don't mind me asking, how did the aftermarket radio workout for you? Did you lose functionality with some car features? Any unforeseen problems that gave you issues after the install? Does the stock display still show some items, such as the heating and cooling setting when you change them, temp, time etc.? Do steering wheel controls work at all? The reason I ask is because I have the 2012 chevy cruze LS and lately have been thinking about swapping out the head unit for an aftermarket upgrade but I have read so many horror stories of so many problems in doing so. I am decently knowledgeable with car audio but I just didn't wanna get myself into a Pandoras box with it either. I am currently at a crossroad, I have done a loc off the rear channels for the subs but now getting ready to redo/replace the doors mids and highs and add a second amp to the new sets I install. Just trying to plan it all out but debating which way to go, another loc off the remaining channels or upgrade the receiver. Any input you have I'd appreciate. Thanks
