a little custom audio work i did

So a guy i know has a civic hybrid and the stereo had seen better days...So he asked me to hook him up! I did so in the fashion of a new set of Rockfordfosgate 6.5 components in the front doors a set of 6.5 coaxials in the back a Punch P2 10 and two Punch 200.2 amps here are some pics

what he was workin with in the front and rear..... note* all four of these speakers weighed less than one tweeter from the rockford set


Speaker holes obviously arent round in japan so i had to cut out some circles


It was tough but i finally got the signal, amp send and the tweeter wires through the door harness


both sides terminated and ready for the new midrange


New midrange ready to go in!


tweeter mounted and ready to go in


tweeter now back in the car and done


in the trunk getting the line output converters mounted and organizing all the wiring


Sealed box for the 10 built from 3/4 mdf all in all its .75 cubes


test fitting the wall panel and making sure i like the layout


pannel looks good now time to cut some holes.... a router and a few homemade jigs beat a jig saw any day of the week


jig i made for the amp holes...its easy just two side tape where you want the holes theuse a flush trim bit and trace it out! i can cut each hole in about a minute and be perfect evey time


all the holes cut just test fitting it again


i wrapped it first with some thicker fleece .... just gives it a barely padded feel with the vinyl on it


laying out the vinyl


strecthed and one amp hole done


the amps are flushed along with the sub


now just repeat process for other amp and sub.... do a little wiring mount it and you end up with this


items installed were
2 P200.2 two channel amps
1 P2D210 10" sub
1 P1652-6 6.5 component set
1 P1S652 6.5 coaxial
Rockford Fosgate power wire
Schose fuse holder,fuses, and speaker wire
thanks for looking!
