Default 12 fit SQ 2 seat

Just got my Honda Fit , gonna do it up real purdy like and have some fun.

System will be:

Alpine double din with optical out (X008)

2 minidsp 2x4HDs optical input
2 Stevins audio HLCDS
2 Stevins audio 8"
2 Beyma 10g40s (or Stevins audio 10s have to wait till there available to check its parameters)

1 Focal FPS 4160
2 focal FPS 3200
1 JLHD 1200/1 (eventually will be another focal amp)

1 18" B&C subwoofer

Its a 2012 , has 6700 miles, super clean and fresh for a sick build.
Been wanting one for a while when looking for the ultimate SQ Car layout.

My goals are for it to image in both front seats.

I'm going to re-work the dash and cut the horns into the upper firewall right under the windshield. I'm also going to Build a custom a pillar that allows 8" midrange to be mounted in the dash. The location for the 8" had a PLD just over 6". Where The horns will be I measure a PLD at just 4".

I'm going to do a subtub in the spare tire well for the 18" sub. And make it so I can run it either sealed/ported/IB. I'm going to make a port/vent that I can put a plug into, and make a plug on bottom of Car that can be opened to vent out to atmosphere when I want to go IB.

The 10s will be in the footwells cut into the floor/firewall area and fiberglass enclosure that runs down the underside of the car and be sealed and have about/at least 1cu ft of airspace each

The amps will be mounted on a custom anorak that follows the back seat to its top, and will be floating so that I still have a trunk that is useable.

I am installing a high output internally regulated alternator. (270A)
There will also be a second battery on a custom bracket in the engine bay.

Feel free to chat, definitely intrested in any ideas for the build.

I've considered those a pillars about the best for audio ever. wonder how big they will be with eights in them.

"you will need to use all 31 bands on the eq, qualifying a speaker as better cause you feel it needs lesser eq just means you're not listening closely enough."

It's going to be stupid big A pillars . I'm kinda nervous. But fuck it why not, the low PLD makes me so excited for an A pillar build.

When I had the santafe I had it dialed in so good but just wasn't happy, like real happy. Everything I was doing and the extreme amounts of DSP and FIR processing just could not replace the PLD problem. Sure it was good, but about 2 years ago I knew eventually I would buy this type of car.

Every Car that comes into the shop I would look at for potential SQ builds and the Fit just met everything that I like and want in a system. But gosh dang what a joke of a little ride, but hey it's a Honda , it's built well and drives .... Well like a Honda .

I can't stand kick panels and HF coming from my legs, but the SQ from those locations just can not be done with a dash Build unless you get that distance from the speakers.

After listening to Wayne Watkins Mazda I knew that's what I was after , as far as perfect imageing from both sides and dash mounted drivers. but I also knew it needed a horn to be at my level.

I'm sure I'll have to make some changes to my original plan, (that always seems to happen at some point) but for the most part I can't see any reason why this won't work. Well, minus the gas tank being under the front seats will make it difficult to get my midbass boxes in the floor , but I think I have a solution for that.

I'm contemplating doing a sub/midbass inside the dash where the glove boxes are , like Wayne's it would work very good, I have to wait till I do the dash pull to really see what kind of room I have .

It's going to be nice to FINALLY make a true SQ Car for myself and not someone else. I've built countless cars for customers, I'm very excited to be able to do this for me at least once in my life.

Im going to install a new HO alternator this weekend , I'll post pics along the way, I just got done doing 3 bulk packs of dynamat, the mlv , cc foam, and thinsulate will arrive next week , once the headliner is put back in I'll probably start the dash work.

I don't have 2 years to spend building this car, but I do have one day a week for however long I need to get it done , my goal is to be able to start tuning by September

im so in love with my speakers I found a song I sing to them

Default Re: 12 fit SQ 2 seat

So I think my fit is a ex. Has Power windows , ac, usb, cloth seats, no sunroof , and homo hubcaps. I m slowly going to morph it into a fit sport. Get the oem 8spoke 16" wheels in grey

I just ordered a steering wheel out of a sport model , has wrapped grip, shift paddles. Just ordered new civic si steering wheel audio buttons as well. They bolt on wheel in knockout. Going to use the paddles for track forward/ back being the normal swc only has volume/ch/ mode , so I'll be able get more on the swc . I'll just have to read-wire the wheel a bit for the clock-spring and add a few resistors.

I also just got BNIB fit oem floor mats , my wife is going to embroider "Stevins audio" into them. (Gives the wife a project she wants do stuff to it also)


Ive been dreaming up ideas on the dash and midbass. I think I'm going to Build the dash to come up a tiny bit at the far back and make some jigs and incorporate a flus ring that has a long shape that spans the entire width, have it about 4.5" wide and on the ends make it angle back torwards the driver/passanger , I'll have the tops of the horn motors back inside there , I'll make it out of smoked plex so that I can pull it off to access the horn motors. I definitely will want to be able to put diffrent horn drivers on. This will mean I will have to somehow fix the stud of the driver mount to the horn body. I won't be able to get the horns out of the dash but I can make a tiny access cover to access the motors. The top of the firewall goes up to a small shelf like where the defrost vents are, that's where I'll cut the majority of the horn into the firewall. This will make it possible to get the drivers in/out with somewhat easier. Once the crash pad is back in I don't want to have to remove it to get to the compression drivers.

The 8"s in the A pillar glass boxes I want to recess the 8s into the front of panel and make another jig that expands the "grill" to a bigger shape that joins the gill for the horns. I want to make the 8"s under that have a adaptor plate to I can interchange drivers , from 6"-8" . I just know I'll want to try diffrent drivers so I might as well make it part of the design.

Just ideas churning , I like this thread for sharing ideas, but also as mental notes to self.

Hope the new alt shows up tomorrow. Can't wait to get that portion done and over with.

im so in love with my speakers I found a song I sing to them

Then you might want to make sure she spells it right. It's "Stevens Audio." Just so you know.

Looking forward to progress. I like the 2nd gen Fit. Test drove one before I bought my Rio. Liked the car, hated the manual trans/clutch.
Is yours a stick or auto?

Oh gosh now I feel dumb, that was Google voice spelling for me actually, I should probably have proof read that. Oops , no disrespect to the man. She's going to make it exactly as the sticker shows on the drivers. Font ..etc.

Yeah it's a auto , it's slow as molasses so I'm not going to even try to make it fast. I drive downtown a lot so auto is much more comfortable of a ride.
The rio is a very decent little car. My sis in law just got one, much faster than the fit

I wish you the best of luck with this Build and can't wait to see it progress. I would recommend taking it to a metal fabricator to reinforce what you cut out, the last thing you want to do is get into an accident with a Car that has had it's substructure cut away... I was very careful with that when modifying my car. I didn't wanna lose a leg in an accident because I cut too much outta my kick panel(s). I plan on driving the hell out of my car; not sure what your plans are so that may not apply to you....

Default Re: 12 fit SQ 2 seat

I tryed to remove the dash today. Gosh dam I ran into a problem that ruined my entire life .

I can't get the crash pad off!!!!
There's a big metal bar that runs the span of the dash and it has metal brackets welded to it all over that the crash pad acres to in lots of little places. To get it out the doors have to come off to get to the bolts in door jam and the fucking motor has to be pulled to access the bolts in the engine bay!

I AM NOT going through all of that. I'm so discouraged right now. My only hope is to just take a air saw to the dash and cut. I am NOT doing that until I go to a junkyard and cut a dash out of a Fit to see what else is under there .

The good news is behind the factory tweeter is a gallon of room . I can fit almost any driver I want down there. And that's the spot that has the lowest PLD. If worst comes to worst I'll do under dash horns or do a square horn body , like my small set of jbl 1.6k horn bodies I have.

I can still do what I want it's just going to be a bigger PITA !

im so in love with my speakers I found a song I sing to them

2 Stevins audio HLCDS
2 Stevins audio 8"
2 Beyma 10g40s (or Stevins audio 10s have to wait till there available to check its parameters)

1 Focal FPS 4160
2 focal FPS 3200
1 JLHD 1200/1 (eventually will be another focal amp)

1 18" B&C subwoofer

Its a 2012 , has 6700 miles, super clean and fresh for a sick build.
Been wanting one for a while when looking for the ultimate SQ Car layout.

My goals are for it to image in both front seats.

I'm going to re-work the dash and cut the horns into the upper firewall right under the windshield. I'm also going to Build a custom a pillar that allows 8" midrange to be mounted in the dash. The location for the 8" had a PLD just over 6". Where The horns will be I measure a PLD at just 4".


I'm going to do a subtub in the spare tire well for the 18" sub. And make it so I can run it either sealed/ported/IB. I'm going to make a port/vent that I can put a plug into, and make a plug on bottom of Car that can be opened to vent out to atmosphere when I want to go IB.

The 10s will be in the footwells cut into the floor/firewall area and fiberglass enclosure that runs down the underside of the car and be sealed and have about/at least 1cu ft of airspace each

The amps will be mounted on a custom anorak that follows the back seat to its top, and will be floating so that I still have a trunk that is useable.

I am installing a high output internally regulated alternator. (270A)
There will also be a second battery on a custom bracket in the engine bay.

Feel free to chat, definitely intrested in any ideas for the build.

I'll refer you to your own post and Eric's response.
Horns are intended to be listened to off axis. VERY Few cars have pulled off horns in the dash with any real success of the car actually sounding good.
