My Tang Band Bamboos are only rated at 12W, and I was running them off the front 2 channels of a JL HD 900/5 in my Genesis Coupe, and off 2 channels of a Sony Mobile ES XM-450G now. Haven't had any Power issues. They're in pods, and crossed over in the 350ish range, IIRC.

I just got a 2011 Ford Fusion sport with the sony 12 Speaker W/ navigation. I as with many other's have been inspired by the work you put into your build. I would love to immatate your spare tire IB set-up but everyone tells me I'm crazy. lol I think I want to go active for the front stage for the first time and I also am planning a removable Microsoft surface pro 3 in and was wondering your thought's as the best way to Wire it in. (besides wireless bluetooth) Have you looked into any of the many "gesture" controllers for headunits?

It does take a bit of madness to cut such a large hole in the spare tire well. But damn the results were worth it.

Just make sure you use materials and oiled air cleaner to keep the elements out.

I haven't done much into the gesture end of things. Mainly because the steering wheel.controls are so convenient. Waving my hand in front of my face instead of just moving a finger that's already in the steering wheel.doesnt make much sense.

Are you planning on keeping sync? If so u could bluetooth the surface to the sync system? Not exactly sq but good enough otherwise.

Don't mean to mess up the thread, but it might be helpful info to others.
I'm getting ready to switch up to a Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4. Not 100% sure if I plan to use it with one of Sony's AppRemote capable radios (which would allow me to retain satellite radio, AM/FM tuner, etc.) or not, but I don't need to the way I'm doing it.

I used a Behringer UCA222, which is essentially a USB mixer which gives me a set of RCA outs, an Optical out and a headphone jack out. I'm using an Anker 4.8A Car charger, an OTG USB Y cable, and an Amazon 4 port USB hub. This will all be feeding into my Audison Bit One via the optical out.

I don't know if this setup will work with the Surface, tho. It should, but I'm no expert.

The down side is if I don't retain a HU of some sort, I lose my tuners...AM/FM/satellite. Not a huge deal, except I listen to a lot of baseball and football games while commuting, and they usually get blacked out online, so I can't stream the station's website feed. I could do the satellite radio app, but it sucks and drops signal when standing still.

But, anyway, I figured other people might stop in here to see this install and the previous tablet install, and this might help.

I really want to do the spare tire IB setup so I think I might just cut the hole, then I don't have a choice! ha ha ha
I think it would be super easy to interface everything with bluetooth in the fusion, just looking for ideas on hardwiring. I do plan to use a bluetooth DSP though!
I'm trying to mold the dash piece so when the tablet is absent from the dock all you see is a 1/4" high bar. (with magnets in it) So everything would be "stock." Click, click, in go's the tablet (with a retainer under HVAC vent) and an 8" Navigation turns into a 12". I don't know how to integrate the backup camera to switch to the Tablet when it's docked, but play on the in dash 8" without the tablet, any ideas? Hardware or Software with bluetooth?
Do you have any changes planned in your audio system anytime soon?

Really nice build, with a tons of work!

I also try to put a pair of BGneo8s in my Car and just dismissed. Too much phase conflicts in my Car (Honda Accord 08); even with DSP-Z8 tuning possibilities.
I just keep my Neo3PDRW as tweeters, ones are just amazing in details.

Did you have difficulties when you tuned your config with Neo8s, like center focus?

Can't say I have with just the neo8's. When I had the neo3's in there too my imaging was a bit large.

Past 2 iasca finals I have scored 48 out if 50 in imaging. Have it dialed in. Lol.

Has anyone tried using just using a single unit? I am looking at using a AMT uppermidrange/tweeter. Don't really have the room for a midrange up high in the doors or on dash. Is this possible while maintaining quality and staging? Or is this unrealistic without using a supertweeter for higher frequencies on axis?
