    2018 Subaru WRX

    Time for another build log. Traded in my truck a while back and decided to go with a WRX again. I previously had a 2015 WRX. I got a great deal on a used 2018 with only 300 miles on it. I've been working a lot on the interior, exterior, performance, and of course the audio. So let's start with the exterior. I installed a grillecraft grille, cheap eBay front lip, tint, subispeed sequential taillights, some new emblems, debadged the rear factory emblems, and some new fog light bezels with DRLs.

    Yeah taxes blow. It's the only reason they're starting to legalize marijuana, greedy bastards just want a piece of the pie. Speaking of pie, it seriously doesn't make any sense to me that prostitution is illegal. They'd be taking that ass for sure.

    Home amps and raw drivers?

    On second thought $50 is pretty cheap for crossovers..... ūüėā The only buttersworth I know is Mrs. Buttersworth..... ūüėÜ

    Cd skipping

    Sounds like it isnt very well secured to the dash/the HU.Though just depends on how well the HU can hold up to vibrations within the vehicle as upon trial and error so to speak.There is no way I can run a CD in any of my vehicles past the volume of 10-15 with the power I generally run.And as for a flip out unit? Ive had one last about 3 weeks tops before falling apart.USB or a Laptop or bluetoothe is where I have to listen to music other than the radio stations.Transfer your music to a USB drive or continue having issues. You may want to see about bracing the HU behind the dash to see if this helps

    Replacing 12 inch XFL

    What happened to the XFL if I might inquire?.. nice sub if installed correctly IMO. Are you just looking for more? A 1200 watt amp is kinda anemic for some of the subs listed IMHO. All you might need is a new enclosure... whats the current box like?

    Staining birch is really easy. Wipe it on wipe it off. At least to me that's easy. It's the polyutherane part that's difficult. I did my 1st stain project:

    @audiobaun I used to have this very same amp back in the early 90's. It was my 1st amp and dam was it expensive!! Guy originally wanted 250 back then but took it for 200. All the $ I had at the time which was not a whole lot for a 16 yr old lol.

    • The G6 is now bonded and insured. In 5 - 10 business days I will have it tagged and be driving the car. You know what that means? I get to start the... move forward with the build.
    • The only Diamond subs that were close to being impressive were the old D3s. They put up good spl #s while sounding close to a JL W6.¬†
    • I knows subwoofer technology has changed immensely over the past several years hell even ferrite magnets are made stronger today then they were 10 years ago but I still love me some older subs too ¬†
    • I can't find any firmware-update for this unit. Has there never been new software for it?
    • There's one mfg I'm aware of with that feature -- Sony - a couple of their $200-250 models.¬† Are there others? It's a 15w HU unless stated otherwise.
    • They must be trying to cater to retards like everyone else these days. ¬† Sonic had a few low end Diamond subs show up a few months ago but they are way over priced for what they are.¬†
    • I wanted to see what ole diamond audio was putting out these days since about 10+ years ago I used a lot of their stuff but knew they started making some junk but just wanted to see what was up and I see this weird red bolded disclaimer on every subwoofer they have listed on their products page.¬† SPECIAL NOTE: ¬† LIKE ALL DUAL VOICE COIL SUBWOOFERS A DUAL 2 OHM SUBWOOFER IS ACTUALLY A 1 OHM...OR 4 OHM SUBWOOFER -
      IT WILL NEVER BE JUST 2 OHMS!!   
      AND A DUAL 4 OHM SUBWOOFER IS ACTUALLY A 2 OHM...OR 8 OHM SUBWOOFER -
      IT WILL NEVER BE JUST 4 OHMS!!

      BE CAREFUL WHEN DESIGNING YOUR AUDIO SYSTEM AND YOUR SELECTION OF AMPLIFIER/SUBWOOFER COMBINATION(S).   LOWER IMPEDANCE IS NOT A GOOD THING.  DAMPENING FACTOR OF THE AMPLIFIER SUFFERS (HOW IT CONTROLS THE SUBWOOFER) AND THE HEAT OF ANY AMPLIFIER DOUBLES WITH EVERY HALVING OF IMPEDANCE.  NOT A GOOD THING!!!  REMEMBER THAT HEAT IS YOUR ENEMY.   
    • I've used GT Mat for both, but I've done my car and these days I mostly use it to line metal speaker cabinets. Which is why I only need a quart.
    • There are some brands that are still in the same avenue that RE used to be.¬† Hint hint.
    • Hi everyone, I'm looking to upgrade my setup for the first time and have some questions.¬† I'm not an audiophile (maybe yet, haha)¬†but I do love music and want it to sound reasonably good, considering price. But I wanna start with something basic and go from there.¬†My plan is to buy the parts and get a local shop to install everything. Hoping to keep it around $500 (I'm Canadian but using USD to presumably make it easier for people here)¬†all in if possible.¬† I have a 1997 Honda Civic CX. There's an aftermarket Kenwood deck in it but its old and I'll be replacing it. Beyond that there's 2 stock speakers in the back, and none in the front, just the plastic things that look like speakers, which I found kinda odd.¬† So onto the¬†questions.¬†How many speakers do I actually need? Can I just get a new deck, 2 speakers, and a powered sub and call it a day? Or do I need 4 speakers? The first scenario seems more convenient, because if I understand correctly (correct me if not), I can only plug in 4 things to the average lower-end deck. 4 speakers plus a sub would require me to get an amp, yes? Prefer to not go down that road if possible for budget reasons.¬†Can I get 2 new speakers and keep the existing rear ones? Would that sound bad?
