derick!

Nice work on the install! Its been a long time since i've seen your car. (Last time I saw it was on yarisworld)
Great progress! I'm glad you decided to glass :]. Its a lot of work but truly pays off!

I see you also upgraded your equipment! Man I bet you love driving your car.

Very nice! I'm jealous of the symmetrical dash. Did you try different locations for the tweeter and/or aiming of both mid and tweet?
Thanks, yes the dash it's cavernous and great for our systems.

I did, and now after some experience I would like to aim the mids a little bit more inwards to move the stage towards the windshield a little bit more. I made some graphics to show my stage and how it's evolving and why I will modify it later.

too bad all that work was done to a brake-failing toyota, and a yaris at that.

i'm just kidding man. that is some great work, even more so if you really don't have any glassing experience. nice out of the norm pictures too.
Jeje, I know Toyota moving forward... even if you don't want too.

I'm glad mine didn't have that problem, 5 peed manual at it's best, and 42 MPG doesn't hurt either.


Yes! first time I dare to do some thing like that! I'm proud of my self, really.

Thanks, theRESONANCE, yea! I've been keeping an eye on your install, that sub-woofer box came out very nice! Yes I'm still posting at YarisWorld, we miss you over there!

Glass?.... Puffff piece of cake! well not really but it was fun and smells good too.

Nice work man, looks awesome. What mid bass driver is that you're using? Is it a ~6.5"?

Thank you,
Right now I'm using a regular 6.5 speaker in the doors, I'm going to build kickpanels for the Legatia 6 (6.5" drivers)

Deadening:

For me there are 2 ways to approach this...

1) Block Outside noise

2) Prevent Rattles

I did a mix and tried to keep a balance, so here we go:


Started pulling some panels:





Learning about the 25% of a flat area to control resonances:





After CLD Tiles, a layer of CCF and MLV:

Here is a short video I made to show how CLD Tiles work:

Doors:

The rear right door treatment...

Taking the trim panel off was hard I bet the second door will be much easier.

CLD Tiles taking care of the resonances on the flat areas of the door.
















My next step is to use 3/8” cylindrical form Extruded Butyl "Rope" this is going behind the intrusion bars, I have to leave gaps for water to drain.

I took a photo of the trim panel put the picture in AutoCAD to scale and then traced over to get the profile of the panel.

FYI, we can't see the pics.
