drew up a layout with measurements in AutoCAD. This will come in handy when making the AF logo-ish false floor.

This is awesome! I might copy you! Ha! I'm curious as to the thought process behind mixing and matching your component speakers from three different brands as opposed to buying a complete set? It really adds up in price once you add in that crossover!

Really wanted to do this with my sub but ended up getting one that wouldn't allow cause of it's depth. How many inches are you having to raise the floor and what type of airspace are you going to get out of your box? You going sealed or ported?

Its a sealed enclosure. Airspace is about 1.5 before displacement. The floor will be raised by 2" at a maximum.

I buy drivers to meet the individual needs. Only reason to buy a pre-boxed set is because its dummy proof. This setup will be full active so no need for passive crossovers.

here is the newest and most likely final template. I like it a lot better than the original plan.





Here is the new (left) vs the original (right)

Stock door



window rolled down. The window is shaped to fit around the speaker magnet. Oodles of mounting depth.



Making HDPE baffles



The baffle fits

Do you think the speaker location under the windshield is good for sound quality? I have heard it is a terrible spot. I thought you were putting the tweeter elsewhere?

absolutely. Aiming and tuning are a huge part of it though. You can get some nice wide dispersion off the windshield. Im excited to get it all tuned up and get my soundstage where I like it.

Wish I cared enough (or had so much $ it didn't matter) to spend this much on audio for a car. Home audio is where it's at for me. Looks good though.

amp rack

well, I attempted to route the aluminum today. It was going great until the bit broke. 1/8" spiral bit on a 1/4" shaft. Not much material there if there is any stress. Need to find a straight shaft bit with a single carbide blade. Maybe that would do better. Oh well. Enjoy the pics.


duplicated the template as a backup

I still think a thin covering layer would be best. Offer some depth and dimension to the already awesome design.
