It's been a while since I updated this thread... haven't done much in the way of audio since I last posted though... it's been all mechanical stuff for the most part.
I wasn't very happy with the look or sound of my sail panel tweeter setup, so I decided to mount 'em in the factory dash location.
So, I took one of the OG speakers from my buddy's dash
sliced that dirty slut with a dremel
cut out some plastic and added a layer of Ensolite
and made a chinsy bracket thing to go on the back.
Mounted that bizzle in the dash. (I put the cover back on after the pic)
Part of the reason I left my wiring so "modular" was for situations like these. I just ran new wires from the dash to the kick area, and swapped out the leads from the old tweet spot to the new one. So, since I have both tweeter housings already, I can move them back to the sails if I wish.
So, it went from this
... to this.
And not only does it sound a lot better, but it looks a f*ckton nicer in there. I busted out some of the CDs that I used to tune with back in the day and got it dialed in pretty good, just using the 6 band EQ that comes with the head unit. Not perfect, but a lot better.
I have dreams of buying an RTA setup and tuning that way, but meh... we'll see.
