finally I can start the install on my V70.
I had the same car once, that makes the install pretty easy for me. (pics of the old are HERE)
Inside will be L1proR2, L6SE, for each side a Genesis Profile2 Ultra and a Profile sub for the sub. Which will hopefully be an I10SW when it is available. This will be in the right side of the trunk.
I´ll summarise some posts I did allready in another forum, so please be patient if it does not make to much sense in one thread.
Source for that will be the original Volvo unit, thereoff the RCAs will run into a Helix P-DSP. I hope the signal quality will be good enough, as that car will compete in EMMA.
The nice thing is you can easliy have the RCAs out of the OEM unit when installing a DIN 6pin
Okay, most of you will know how they loo but as they look soooo sweet here are the pics of the speakers:
I started to have a look what the system puts out.
Mmh, good news und bad news...
At first I measured them at seating position (Signal was pink noise via CD, L6SE without any Xover)
left and right:
Well, okay I thought. Maybe I have problem with my centre tunnel or foot well or whatever. So let´s do a near field measurement.
Houston, we have a problem.
I like that they are able to play that low, also that they play high enough to have more option to Xover the tweeter. I do like that it does not change that much under angle - BUT what is that at 450Hz?!
It cannot be inside the car as the nearfield would be different. It can not be the door as I espacially did that damping behind the speaker to not have such issues.
WAIT! What is the Headunit doing?
Measured the HU with rca out directly to MIC in:
Ah, that´s the cure. I was aware that this OEM unit might not be on top like actual Pioneers or Alpines but I would not have guessed such an issue!
So, two possibilitys: Maybe I can hide it with an EQ or I´ll have to change the Headunit (which I do not want because of useability.
GREAT, thanks for the info. That seems to be a very reasonable price and the work looks to be top notch.
I'm needing to find someone who can make me an aluminum Porsche crest to be drilled and tapped to serve
as my power and distro blocks. I'm sure they could cut it out without any issues. Where I am running into
issues is finding someone to can etch the final product (to look like the emblem and not just a triangle) to
better resemble the crest, if you get my meaning. I could very easily cut the shape but don't think I could
do the etching, be it sand blasting or laser.
Again, thanks for the reply and really like your install on one of my fav cars
Nicely done, sir! I too am patiently awaiting the 10" Imagine sub. Have you heard an ETA on the sub? The last I heard (which was several months ago) was the first part of August, but it must have got pushed back.
At any rate, nice work on both install and equipment choice!
The guys how makes my metal works has a 5 axis machine, able to work with wood, metal and granite. (I had granite as front of my subbox once-> GREAT thing that is!)
AND he has been one guy who made "one of" examples for the car industry AND is into car audio and car audio competitions. So he knows what is needed.
The I10SW will need some more weeks, I guess I will install that one after this years competition season.
