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 mate. now working on a spare dashboard: i'm gonna keep the single midwoofer in the doorcard, yet i wanna put a 2 way system to improve the soundstage. i have to do some empiric test and choose between a dome midrange and a dome tweeter (hpf 1 khz) or try and fit a quality coax (focal 130 ac, hpf 250 hz). both are good choices but they need a different amount of job: stay tuned and cheers from italy ;)

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.

Working on the door cards. They will fit two woofers each. The structure is MDF 19 mm + fiberglass.IMG-20170928-WA0003.thumb.jpeg.8e27efb047b8bd49dcecb9433cd2a10f.jpeg

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).

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.
