Over the last year or so.

Some no-name stuff, like Arc Audio, Image Dynamics, Focal Utopia, and Dynaudio.

Focal Utopias, with crappy edead deadening, and bad tweeter location:



Old Pioneer Head Unit:


Sneaky fuse location:


Crappy sub box I never finished and amp rack with some puny little 300x2 amp for my front speakers:




1200w amp on the other side.




Old vs new:



Old pillar location: BAD BAD BAD



__________

New Distro block. 0 Gauge.


3 way baffle:


Next?
Ditched sub. Ditched 1200w amp. Bought 8" midranges. Ditched 3" dome mids.
No need for a sub, these midranges play down to 40hz with authority and up to 3.2khz (active) with grace and articulation.

left new, right old



GOOD a-pillar:



More deadening. Whoel car done in liquid material. Then edead mat (sucks) then Ensolite (awesome.)



Keep the frontwave out of the door panel!!!


Take it ALL off.


Foam EVERYTHING!


Deaden EVERYTHING! (that needs it)


Deflex! (Useless!)


Route stuff well.

Nicely done! More detail on the speakers? I'd Love to get rid of my sub and get my trunk back, but I'd have a hard time going back to the prior lack of bottom end.

They are the dynaudio MW172 set.

Runs about $450 a pair for the midranges. They like about 300 watts each. I'm running mine at 150, just until I can get another amp.

I might do a sub later on, because I like exaggerated bass some times.

You can actually fit the 10" dyn speakers up front, Iv'e heard... but you would need to run a large format tweeter to get away with it.

Looks great man! I bet it sounds great as well. I need to step up to something more than my pair of 8w0's.
