    I'm on the fence with starting to build for other people at the minute MrAcd, I think once I get a house with a nice shop then I might start, but unfortunately until then I've not really got anywhere to do any jobs, I built these pods in the backyard resting on a wheel barrow lol....

    Nice job ! I just finished a set to put two Anarchy mids in each door. I worked on sawhorses with plywood top and worked outside too.

    Those look good too ! looks like you figured out how to get bottom of the panel off the rest too ! I actually built speaker mounts so they would be sealed into my doors and theses were just covers over them. I will tell you they took me a long time to make it all fit!

    Well I got a small shop 12x10 Its small but I do all my work in there or outside. I prefer to do my fiberglass outside.

    Actually the bottom doesn't come off the upper part where the tweeters are do on some. I just molded everything in how I wanted. To about 4 days total haven't decided if I'm gonna wrap them or just leave them painted. Made 2 sets these are my second set

    They will you just got to drill out all the melt spot welds and carefully so you can still put them back together, took me a while to figure out how without ruining my panels . I used a extra door panel a friend gave me to practice cutting it a part. Actually the fiberglass part took me the least amount of time,covering with vinyl and fitting and building speaker mounts took me the longest. Anarchys are big azz mids and I literally didnt have an extra inch so there was alot of mock up and test fit.

    How are you guys mounting them to the door panel...

    Sent from my SGH-T999 using Tapatalk



    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

    Mine are mounted to mounts mounted to metal as to seal them to sealed and treated doors. Had I just mounted to door panels it would have been SO much easier but wouldnt sound near as good.
