Default 2005 Acura TL: Part 2

Still at it!

Engine compartment is complete! XS D6500 battery, ToolMaker fused terminals, Stinger 000 run to the back and 000 ground. The second 0 wire on the fused side is from the power supply input. Non-fused side are the OEM connections.

[IMG][/IMG]

Tucked red LED's on the + side and white on the - side. Looks really good in person.

[IMG][/IMG]

[IMG][/IMG]

Doors: Flushed an AudioTechnology 23I, 9" in each door. Had to go the flushed route so the driver would not conflict with the door panel.

[IMG][/IMG]

And the windows even roll down. Doors looks completely OEM.

[IMG][/IMG]

Still sourcing more goodies to wrap up a few more items. Will post more pics as I can.

Kirk,

WOW, That's REALLY NICE!!!

I was so tempted to go with the AT 23I's in the doors in my install after hearing about what you were doing. However, I stayed with the AT 18H's since it was easier and wouldn't much modification.

Your stereo must sound really GREAT and loud!

Thanks.

Kirk, what do your door panels look like? I am curious to know how you fit 9s in your doors while keeping virtually everything functional and stock.

When I had my TL, I was able to move the window track back about 3/4 inch. I just unbolted the track and stuck some spacers in there. I'm not sure how he did it, but it is quite impressive to say the least. Subscribed to this one.

There is a surprising amount of room in a TL. I did a pair off AT speakers which were over 3.5" deep and used a 3/4" baffle and had a good 3/4"-1" till the window

Moved the tweets from off axis, under the grills to on the same axis as the mids, just a little wider. Had to move them above the grill.

(The velcro is to hold down the dash mat)

Awsome thread. You just gave me hope of fitting the Dyn MW182 in the doors while looking stock.
