Alright, It's been a few years since I've done an install, so I'm chomping at the bit to get back into the game.
I'm using a bunch of stuff I've got sitting around at the moment, plus a head unit I still have to pick up. Most of it's mid-grade, but so is the car, and so is my budget
Here's my victim. 1988 VW Jetta. Mostly stock, nice and clean. Good second car to have around (and augment my "fleet" of two door hatchbacks).
Here's the proposed layout:
I've got a couple of quarts(?) of Second Skin Spectrum, about half a roll of RaamMat BXT, some Ensolite, and a few odd patches of Dynamat Extreme, tons of wire and terminals/blocks, lots of spare MDF, and a wee bit of free time.
I plan to fire the sub through the opening between the rear seats, which looks like zis:
Here's another chap's install. Mine will be similar, most likely.
The amps will mount to the space to either side of the sub enclosure. Tweets in the "sail panels", woofers in the stock location.
My plan of attack is as follows:
1. Pull interior, clean it, let it dry.
2. Deaden doors, floors, firewall, trunk
3. modify door enclosures, mount woofer & tweeter
4. build & install sub box
5. run all wiring
6. put interior back in
Anywho, this is probably going to take a while. Most of my impetus in creating this thread is to remind me that I have to finish stuff. Plus I like documentation, for some odd reason.
Wish me luck!
