I finally got around to putting my sound system in my pansy little car.

So, without further delay...

Hardware List:
1 x Pioneer DEH-P9850BT Head Unit
1 x Soundstream Reference Series RC-60F Front Splits (180W RMS per side) LINK
1 x Soundstream Picasso 760Watt RMS 2 Channel A/B Class Amp LINK
1 x Soundstream Picasso 700Watt RMS Single Channel Monoblock D Class Amp LINK
1 x Soundstream 1.2 Farad Capacitor with Digital Volt Readout
1 x Soundstream Digital DC Volt and Amp Meter
1 x Soundstream 0 gauge 1200Watt Cable Kit
1 x Soundstream 12" Reference Series Subwoofer LINK

And, some photos of the install;

The amp for the front speakers... originally a 520W Picasso, but it was faulty and got replaced by the 760W version


Size really doesn't matter when you look at the newer Picasso design amp, it's smaller in size but packs 700Watts of D class raw power


Here you can see the beginning of the end... the two amps in pre-install with the power cables connected... muahahaha


That's one beefy capacitor you have there


The front speakers are in! They look boring as hell... that's the whole idea!


Working on the wiring... this is still a nightmare at the moment. Will tidy up later -_-


Me, installing the crossovers onto the front kick-panels... because they are so fucking massive they wouldn't fit anywhere else :/


One of my mates thinks I am V.I.P.


Amps are in and wires are wired...


The uber crossover massiveness... it's not an edit... you can't see the pixels... do not pass GO, do not collect $200.


The construction of the subwoofer box is underway... with much liquid mails and 50mm screws :D


The last panel is attached!


Bingo


Lock in those corners, we don't want any air molecules escaping xD


Packed with Dacron and ready to fly... err shake... whatever


Screwed straight through the floor of the boot with 6 heavy duty galv screws... shit ain't goin' nowhere!


Mmmm sexy



At the end of a long day... you have some left over liquid nails...


To enjoy with your beer


xD


And, the first test video... harmonic levitation :D

The rattle you hear in the video is surprisingly limited to the number plate. I thought the whole car would rattle itself to death, but a couple of styrofoam blocks under the number plate stopped that buzzing. Will film another video from inside the car as soon as all the speakers are run-in properly.

VIDEO


Hope you like it, because I sure do :D


The cosmetics will be improved over the next few weekends, like carpeting or painting the box... and installing cladding on the inside of the boot space to make the floor and walls look nice. Also, there is a shelf we have fabricated using the original as a sacrifice to cover up the view of the inside of the boot nicely. It still looks like a granny car apart from the front speakers :)

Now, time for some stereo insurance... maybe I can get the car added as an "extra".

Hmm, I don't think that sound system is quite big enough. Make it a bit bigger maybe?

I haven't even considered putting a nice sound system in my car.

It would get stolen in a heartbeat. :(

Lol Ash xD

I couldn't fit any more in there! Wasn't enough room!

That's why mine looks standard from the outside... the parcel shelf covers the back, and I have a granny blanket that goes on top of it. Apart from the front doors, it looks like nothing unusual is in there :D

I made sure that I got the most boring looking front speaker covers that I could find... make them look like cheap speakers and nobody will know any better. ;)
