  1. arosa mid (or hi) fi

    many thanks mates. today i got the only missing item (a 6-channels rca cable), thus i can go on with the car.
  2. hi all. the goal is to build (the faster the better) a 3 way system plus a sub in the trunk on my arosa. to be fair i spotted some fine works here, thus i decided to place a 2 way on the dash with home-made pods for a Ciare CT250 and a CM501, to keep the midwoofer in the door (Ciare CW 161N) and place both subwoofer (Coral Target TLS 12) and the amplifier (Zapco ST-5X) in the trunk. the radio is a Kenwood KDC-X5100 BT. the subwoofer came with a project of 32 lt closed box, very close to the volume of the spare tyre area. that's why i decided to follow that way. here are some pics, more to follow. cheers, guido

    TY. I'll drive the car for a couple of days with the door cards installed, just to keep track of the stiffness. Then, I'll go on with vibration damping; at last, I'm gonna change the dashboard and wire everything. Really happy with the result till now: neither the speakers' magnets do not interfere with anything, nor the door cards themselves. There's a close gap between them and the seats).

    this is the "fine adjustement"

    some fine adjustment to do, but the final result is very close to the pics

    the last job: building the right door card
  11. arosa mid (or hi) fi

    ty. I decided to pay some money to a real pro to have the door cards wrapped, because I'd like to have a good final result. same for the pods, I had them sprayed by a pro.
  12. Head unit/sound upgrade

    Really happy with Kenwood KDC-5100BT: it has time correction, BT, USB, AUX, FLAC reading. Cheap enough, it has a minimal design. Take a look here: http://www.kenwood-electronics.co.uk/car/rec/bluetooth/KDC-X5100BT/

    Mounted everything on the standard door card: I had to use some fiberglass (over acoustic carpet) to close the gap (the door cards are not plain). BTW, the left pod is about to be carpeted in black leather by a pro. Meanwhile, the pods for midranges and tweeters (and the one for two gauges) are about to be sprayed.

    Some grills to prevent the loudspeakers to be kicked...
  15. arosa mid (or hi) fi

    TY mate. keep in mind it's not my job (i'm not a pro), and i'm very slow at working (I still have to fill and paint the speaker pods and the gauge pod)
  16. arosa mid (or hi) fi

    Ready for carpeting. Smoothened all the edges with the router.
  17. arosa mid (or hi) fi

    only nine speakers, it won't be a spl monster
  18. arosa mid (or hi) fi

    Goin' on with router and filler
  19. arosa mid (or hi) fi

    That's the structure for the left door card. Everything was done with a router; now it has to be finished with some epoxy filler and sandpaper.

    At last, I decided to place two cone midranges on the dashboard (Hertz HL 70) and four 6,5" woofers (Electronic Melody MCW65N) on the doors (two per card). The tweeters are two Ciare Planet CT 250; the subwoofer is a Coral Target TLS 12. Tweeters and midranges need a passive crossover I'm gonna build; everything else has an electronic cut (approx 80 Hz sub - 300 Hz woofers, to be decided during the set-up).
  21. arosa mid (or hi) fi

    Working on the door cards. They will fit two woofers each. The structure is MDF 19 mm + fiberglass.
  22. arosa mid (or hi) fi

    nice: the pods are ready to be painted. they fit correctly on the car, close to the windscreen as thought at the beginning of the project.
  23. arosa mid (or hi) fi

    the first pod is ready to be painted; the holes on the dashboard do match.
