Can't wait to see your new build, too!

my original E36 Coupe --this version was never finished and car got sold basically for scrap bc we had to move and couldnt take the car.

Final version was for 6nd430 and Scan Tweeters with 8s in kicks and the 10 up front IB

Duuuude! And here I thought I was being inventive.

Did you get the 6s playing before you sold it?

Yeh I listened to it a few times, I was actually going to compete with it a MECA finals in 2011 ( I think) but oil pan drain plug stripped out day before had to leave and then was just a series of events that made it so couldnt go.

Original set up had Xtant/Morel 5s as a point source.

anyways, it had really good soundstage relative to listening position. really good depth and layering and just overall the stage presentation was really good. It helps the dash was very shallow to begin with and not a big dash to obstruct sound or create perceptions of a larger boundary.

It had enormous potential to sound REALLY good, just ran out of time and space to do anything with it, plus I had the Ti and the Lancer at the time so the Coupe never got as much time as it needed.

the Lancer has a really cool (IMO) set up as well that you may consider

Reminds me of Strakele's Lancer. His sounded pretty good, so I imagine this did well also.

Guess I never posted the rest of the audio updates for the tuck either.

2 12" Clarus subs went in a ported Fox box under the rear seats, a P Six DSP mk2 went under the front center seat, and the factory dash grills were opened up with new grills with L3SE mids under them. Unity 6x9s remain in the doors.

Love the simplicity of the truck install! Would you be willing to post a short sound demo video of it sometime? Do you have a dedicated sub amp, or are you running each sub on it's own channel of the p-six at 2 ohms? Thanks!

Thanks... I can try to make a vid of the truck sometime soon. The P SIX drives everything, including the subs. Subs are dual 4 ohm coils wired for 2 ohm load... with the ported box there is PLENTY of sub bass.

Kick status in the car!

Thanks for the update, Ben! Can't wait to follow along with the progress. How many of the hybrid audio amps are you planning to use in the install at this time?

I like it Ben. Looking forward to hearing it after all of the new work. So what is going on with the trunk? Just installing the new amps or are you redoing a bunch of stuff there?

I've got 3 of the 5ch amps to use... Basically a left side amp and a right side amp with the "big" channel going to the 8s and the other channels bridged to the midrange and tweeter. Then the third amp for the sub (big channel) and 4 additional channels to play with rear fill/possible center.

Yeah, trunk is gutted to install the new processor and amps, and finish the trim panels. Not sure on layout yet. May be a similar stair-step layout to how the Zapcos were installed, or may be something different altogether. Kinda leaving that up to Toby's creativity.
