remember back in the day people such as Claire, Fear, Chumbly_warner, Daimo B to name a few all had some pretty cool installs and custom audio set-ups, just wondering if anyone on here is still into thier audio? or if anyones made their own sub enclosures etc. ...or is this too 1990's max power according to CS

I know Custom corsa is currently sorting audio on his and looks quite good so far, anyone got any photo's of thier's they want to share

Yeah thats the same as me tbh i cant stand awfull audio but also im not too keen on these SPL cometition systems people make.

Just wondered if anyones made an install them selves, i know a lot of people go for the 'stripped out mega fast track slag look' even if its just a daily car.

It'll be done at some point in the future along with all the other things I plan to do

Can't be doing with the stripped out look in my car as rear seats are useful

In the MDF baffle if you fit "threaded inserts" you can use machine thread cap heads to hold the speakers in .

Looking good chaps, Karisma always liked that build of yours

Primey, im currently doing the same with my focal components .. will have to get some pics

Also started a small enclosure that will be fibreglassed to house a 10" focal sub

edit: heres a quick pic of the sub enclosure so far out of mdf, its to house the sub inverted and is measured for the correct internal volume. will get onto fibreglassing this week after work, mk1 version:

No sorry didn't grab any more progress pics, will get as many as I can when I make the other set!

Nice wood working skills there Danny W. not sure how the sub will sound inverted though, I'm after sound quality not loudness.

Cheers primey, this is just the mk1 version no doubt I'd be making a few modifications next time lol will be going for a complete boot build and going for a good SQ set up.

Inverted doesn't sound much different IMO but obviously depending on kit used etc.

Danny remember if invert mounting the sub then to wire it out of phase.

Cheers for the comment on my boot build. Only cost 12 to make.
