New car audio build.
Had my "new" car for a little while now, and most of my parts have come in, so I've made some progress I stalling everything. Doing all new components front and rear, because I'm selling this car before I leave, and 4 working speakers is a better selling point than a good sounding 2 channel, and volume is a bit of the goal too, as 2 10s on 1950 rms is a lot of sub for 2 6.5s on 125 rms. Running alpine type gs in the doors, alpine type rs in a ported box, and an alpine ilx w650 for my head unit. Running nvx 16 awg silver tinned ofc speaker wires to the doors, to an NVX jad800.4 4 channel amp, and 8awg silver tinned ofc to the subs, from an NVX vad2700.1. the box isn't the greatest, the subs were bought with a box, and amp for about 2 bills on fb marketplace a coupe years ago. I rewired the box, 2ohm dvc subs, wired with the same 8awg, to a 2 ohm final impedance. Terminal cup sucked, but the hole is already there, so I put some bondo in to add some mass and stiffness, and cut out the spring terminals and replaced the with some copper cardas binding posts. Some wood glue and a couple deck screws fixed the rattley board in the port, and a bit of accoustic mat helps. Big 3 upgraded with 1 ought knu konceptz ofc for the power, and NVX silver tinned 1 ought for grounds. Should have enough of both to run to the trunk, so whichever one fits better will probably be what I run. Got the front speaks installed and big 3 done, with the head unit installed.
