Default 2007 Santa Fe - MECA Mod Street

After some changes through the year, my goal was to try and get the best sound I can without breaking the bank and also to keep the most amount of space left to use as possible for this daily driver.

Power. The big 3 was done as well as upgraded battery and alternator.


Headunit. I went with the Kenwood KDC-X997 to have a little processing and flexibility in adjustment without going with an external processor. I've been pleased with it. Also used the space below for a little advertising.

Components. I choose the PHD FB1.1B tweeter and the factory sail panels are wrapped in black vinyl and FB6.1 pro mid in factory location using FatMat Rattle Trap for treating the doors (inside sleeve and out)

Sub. The PHD FB10.1 in a .9 cu ft slot port tuned to 32. The inside has 1/4" round in the corners and sanded smooth with a poly treatment with the outside sprayed with bed liner and covered with trunk liner.

Amp, tools, etc.
Though a friend upgrading his equipmet, I was able to obtain a Mosconi 120.4 for a great deal and really surprised of the way it performs. The tool display is functional with spare fuses of what is used in the system along with other tools used for the setup. Accent lighting is done with a mixture of blue and white led strips. LED sizes used is 3528 and 5050. Phillips, square, and security torx head screws were used through out the car in a combination to change things up when installing the equipment.

Very clean, I like what you've done there. Are you bridging the two rear channels ?

Thanks and yes the rear channels are bridged for sub running at 4 ohms.
This combination of speakers and amp with power aavailable works out good.

Well I was aiming for stock, maybe street, but I removed a bin in the back where the sub enclosure is so that put me in mod street.
Oh well. Thanks for the nice comments. Did all work in the garage with limited tools and enjoyed every second.

Many have said I couldn't compete with a single amp, passive crossovers and have to use an external processor.
So I had a little motivation.

Default Re: 2007 Santa Fe - MECA Mod Street

Now see my problem is different as I've invested thousands of dollars in audio and still am not happy with how it is. I know that it needs to be tuned professionally in order for me to reap the benefits. But seeing a system such as yours has me convinced that I need to step back and make it more simplified. Yes active is great, but only with the correct amount of time invested into it.

Default Re: 2007 Santa Fe - MECA Mod Street

Thanks. I was aiming to keep the floor at a solid level and spent many hours finding just the right placement for the sub and keeping most of the area useable. This is what I came up with. A compromise between sound and functional space.

I didn't like the sub firing up at all, firing down was ok. Moved around all the area back there aimed left, right, forward and back just didn't seem to do what this setup did.

Looks great Kevin, and it sounded great last time I heard it. You definitely are going about things in the right way, you were able to get a good center image with a passive component set, that in itself is impressive. When you learn to do things in steps it helps you as a tuner, so as your system evolves (and it certainly has!) you can continue to tune for it in steps getting a handle on each part. Can't wait to hear it this weekend!

Thanks for the nice comments. I wanted to complete the first year as a passive setup and learn all I can, knowing in the back of my mind that going active would yield better results but still wanted to yield what I could with a very basic setup. Thankful for the experience and still learning something new each day.

I need to update the log as tweeters have changed since last pictures and I'm going to an active setup as well that should be complete today. I will post a few more pictures and information soon and will try my best to have the best tune I can get together by this Saturday for you to critique Kyle.

It was dealer/factory upgrade. Original was 130 amp and new is 200.
Don't remember the cost. It's been awhile but no issues but I'm not taxing the electrical system either really with what I'm running.
