Made some adapters to take the 4" Bose opening down to a 3" opening. I installed all four but don't have pics of that yet.
These are 8-ohm Tang Band W3s wired in parallel. After installing all four, I tested them on my home receiver and they have a nice smooth midrange, really shone on songs like the Red Hot Chili Peppers "Porcelain". Excited to hear them in the car.
Well that's all for now, I need to go work on some beauty trim for the subwoofer enclosure.
So I left off after fiberglassing, sanding, sanding again, and painting the A-pillars. Next I wrapped both A-pillars in black grille cloth using 3M Super 90, and painted with three light coats of black fabric dye for color consistency.
In reality, I didn't install the A-pillars until I was ready to re-assemble, but for the sake of continuity I will show the installed pictures of the A-pillars here. Note that because both shots were taken from the driver's seat, my flash made the left A-pillar look much lighter than it is. And yes, his cheap-o GM dashboard is a little gimpy as well, the owner assured me a fix was in the works.
Ready for the grand finale? The logo is a bit washed out in the first two photos, but I did some lighting tricks in #3 to bring out the full effect.
I will post a video at some point in the future if people need to see that kind of thing, but of course hearing the audio through a camera mic is kind of a letdown. While I could pick the system's little flaws apart, the owner seemed thrilled with the performance and balance of the system, and that's what this was really about. He seemed very pleased with the presentation overall, and commented that it sounded like a good home stereo. I'll take that as a compliment any day.
