Recommended Posts

Well I changed up a few things in the system and figured I would put together a build log for it. So lets start with the pics shall we!

 

Let's start with some of the equipment.

This was how I had them installed the first time so I re-did it with some more Fatmat and re-did the MDF rings.

I decided to do another layer of fatmat in the trunk. I had a layer of the dynamat extreme in there so I put some fatmat over that as well.

Looking really good. Honda/acura doors are the worst about allowing water in them. That is one thing that i hate about them. I did an 07 accord last week that had water dripping inside the doors, and it hadn't even rained in a couple of days.

Reminds me of my '01 Accord. Looking great. Never thought of doing a foam like enclosure for the front speakers. Notice a difference? i'd also recommended doing an open cell foam between the door panel and the door itself, makes a difference and reduces rattle. What year is your CL-S?

2002 CL-S. I saw your build log and saw that you got into an accident. Whats going on with that, that really sucks bro! I haven't powered them up yet to see how they sound. I cut a small crack in the back of them to let some air flow through. I'll most definetly do that for the doors though!

Did you use fatmat on the outer skin of the doors?


I just want 2 subs that will rattle my eyeballs and soothe my ears at the same time. The type rs did that but didn't last.

 

Everyone here hates on audiobahn. They are a good company, but everyone here has rich daddies and can buy whatever they want. My friend blew out his back window of his F-150 with two Audiobahn Alum12s (2000 watt max each). Go with the bahn. **** you haters.

 

24 nuts holding each rim in, what other info can i give lol

Well thats all I have for now as I'm still working on the car. Unfortunetly, I had to take my car into the Acura Dealership today.....For some reason my engine light came on and the car doesn't do so well when it's idleing.

 

But I did just finish installing the AVIC which as soon as I get it back tom. I'll post some pics. It's a gorgeous unit!

Car looks like it may be totaled. Body shop took a quick look and saw that the firewall has been damaged. I'll get more info tomorrow when they do a full inspection. Your doors and the back seat frame reminded me of a 98-02 CL, I had a feeling it was somewhere there, lol. Does your trunk has a plastic piece or something on trunk lid located on the bottom center (where the lump is in the pic below)?

Yeah a plastic release hatch? Is that what your talking about? My trunk barely opens with the single layer of Dynamat on there or else I would've done more on it.
