I hope some of you can help me plan out my RX7 install. As you can see from the pic, it has been converted from rotary to LS1 power. I LOVE this car.
Last time I was here was in '04 when I did a system for my 94 Cobra. I still have most of the stereo from it. Currently, the RX7 has a Alpine 7897 (big face), Boston Rally 6x8 rear fill powered by HU. Boston Rally 6.5 in the doors powered by a old Coustic 65x2 . The amp is in the spare tire well for now. I have upgraded the alternator to a KG3 145 amp unit and have a Optima red top in the bin.
Here's what I'm after:
I want to use the active x-over in the HU . Two small A/B amps hidden away behind the bins. Quality 6.5" comp set in the doors. No rear fill, no sub.
My budget is whatever I can sell my old stuff for. If it's not against the rules (no bids, just your thoughts) I hope you can suggest prices for some of my old stuff. I have Q-forms for sn95/new edge Mustang. Enclosed and stiffened w/ bondoglas. I still have the Vifa PL18 w/ frame cut down to fit the Q-form. They are too deep for the RX7 door. Still have the MaxFidelity Neo 1.3 tweeters (one has a bent grill) that the Q-form is cut for. Might use these in the 7. Have a MTX Thunderform for 94/04 Mustang. Have a Phoenix Gold 10". Have a Avionixx 800.2 T amp. The Coustic. and I have a special treasure ! NiB, never mounted Adire Extremis 6.4 very rare 4 ohm version.
My original plan was to build pods and new grills to mount the Extremis in the doors. It would be tough to pull off and I would have my foot in the grill every time I got out. Maybe if I could get Lexan door glass I could cut for magnet clearance but that would be expen$ive.
I would like some opinions please. Who makes good shallow mount mid-bass drivers 2" or less ? I'll try to get an exact depth in a few days. Who makes good small amps ? Around the size of a Alphasonik pma6002f ? Should I go to extremes for the Extremis or get something that fits ? Thankx in advance for your help and opinions.
