Wow, very nice, this is similar to what I am imagining for my 2009 Honda Fit, the sail windows are much larger and I'm thinking of running the 6.5" mid-bass and tweeter there.

I like the pillar build. I think you did a real good job.

About how far in front is the tweeter located? Do you feel it cost you anything? My big goal has been to keep the tweeter and mid close together to keep things more aligned in the time domain. Just wondering if you like the tradeoff?

I think there is no problems because of that. we will see how the MS8 will be dealing with this.

I really like how the little window shows off the back of that L3SE! Did you finish the inside with the same cloth as the rest of the pillar?

no processor yet? also on the stock HU? how does it image?

i have the same car with focal v30s in the stock locations. thinking about having custom pillars done for the tweets but I'm worried about imaging as I'm using the "optimize driver" setting on the stock HU which centers the image enough for me.

i also have a problem with the CD player which plays music at a waaay lower volume than the iPod connection using the ford cable. do you have this problem too? upping the volume gets me audible levels of hiss which i don't like.

i also havnt deadened my doors yet. how big of a difference does it make vs the pretty sturdy plastic panel that the fiesta has already? i have some rattles on my door card. not much but i hear them at times. has deadening completely removed rattles and resonances for you?

didn't realize that theres an mk7 build log here.

for sure you will gain a lot with damping of the doors!
I damped the doors first, and then monuted stock speakers back, because I didn't had Hybrids yet. BIG difference!
I have 3 layers of STP, and two layers of foam, and it helps a lot. as for the rattles, here is allreaddy winter, and when temps fall below 0°C there are always some, no mather what you do, but I think this is normal, and they can be heard only on very high level, when everything is shaking (posiblly also because I have a free air instal of midbass)

as for the imaging of stock HU on "driver oprimized" seting, in my case center shifts a little to the left, but focuses are waaay better! and sound is also uncompared to stock positions!!
I am now close to install the procesor (finances) so can't wait to hear the difference! but for now, yes, only crosovers on amps, and that seting on the stock HU no TC, no EQ, no phase corection, and it works ok.

my advice to you is, damp the doors, and make some decent pillars
and if you have a 2way front, buy one four channel amp and one of the small procesors that are allready on the market (audison bit ten mybe) and leave the HU stock.

as for the CD...I don't listen to it AT ALL only USB, the HU reads Wave lossless files so I can't help you with that.

yeah i just have a 2 way system on a 4 channel amp (focal fpp 4100) and a small sealed sub (focal polyglass 21v2).

how did you dampen your doors? I've seen dynamite like material on the outer door. how did you treat the inner plastic door shell apart from the foam? how about the door card? were you able to take out the rattles? the mk7 fiesta is a very quiet car for its class... though the panels and plastics rattle and squeak at times even with no music playing.

Love those pillars, great job!

Do the stock Fiesta mk7(New Fiesta here in Brazil) front doors fit big woofers or deep woofers such as the L6SE, DLS Nordica or Focal KRX3 woofers?

after some time, I think now is time for some update for you guys

clean power wire, no battery update yet, but soon




then i started to work on my new amprack, made from aluminium






Other two amps came from powder coating



And some progress on fixing them on the amprack and wiring up








And the best thing that happend to me this year, I found the HU for me!





But, there is going to be a lot of work


some sub box pics



















some more finishing touches







and finished












coments welcome

p.s. HU is on the flat cable replacement, so that is one last thing to wait and to do the custom dash mask for the dex.
