I just picked up a 09 Honda Fit Sport. So far I've been mulling over mounting locations for the amps and subs.

As for the front speakers, im planing on going 3way active with mids/tweets on A pillars and MBs on kicks.

Equipment so far...
Clarion DRZ9255
ADS P840 and P2110
Scan Illuminator 1" tweets
Peerless 830986 or Fountek FR88-EX or SEAS L12RCY/P mids
SEAS W18NX 7" MBs
Image Dynamics ID10v3d2.

First things first, this car can use a lot of sound dampening.
I purchased Cascade VB-2HD and VB-4 so far. Im going to use these products along with some leftover dynamat, ensolite, and foam from different companies.
Im going to begin taking the Fit apart this weekend

This is my daily driver and eventually is going to replace the Lexus for IASCA comps.

I started with the sound dampening
Dynamat applied on the flat areas and covered as much as I can in VBHD.

Stripped trunk:



Note that square hole in the second picture, Im thinking of building an enclosure over over that area ;)

Dynamat on the flat areas and some of the sheet metal:



VBHD in the wheel wells:

Then went to town with the VB2-HD






I have to admit, this car is one of the easiest car that I've ever taken apart.

I installed the material as far up behind the factory pad as I could

$50 0awg special on diyma a few months ago. Not the greatest (thick jacket/small strand count), but more then I will ever need in this car.










Power and ground for the Clarion source power supply



While I was at it, I upgraded one of the ground wires.

Making RCAS (Gepco D72401EZGF cable and Streetwires ends)





Dynamat and leftover McMaster brand 1/2" closed cell foam with foil backing from a previous install



I couldn't afford buying more Cascade VB-3, so I bought Second Skin Luxury Liner.

I finally finished up installing the wires. Note that the wires are temporary ran up to the end of the center console for for easy access when I install the radio

This is the basic idea of what I want to do:





I finished almost an entire roll of 3M painters tape

Wow Vin, looks like you're well on your way with it already. Looks great so far and I can't wait to see the rest of your progress. How much of a difference in road noise have you noticed since you did the deadening?

it would be worth your time to make a positive of that subwoofer mold.

You could easily sell several of those before JL or MTX gets around to it

I can honestly say it made a pretty big difference. This car's interior is very loud when i bought it.

I wish I had the time

I'm assuming that you're talking about the stuff thats applied to the sheet metal and spare tire? Cascade Audio VB-2HD

Wow, that looks great. You certainly look like a professional.
Not quite "professional," DIY! :D:D:D

now I remember why we call you masta fabricator
Not a chance, I call him the "MAESTRO" of FG fabricator. I'm still very happy with the A-pillar job he did for my Taco.

BTW Vin, your little putt-putt golf car is coming SWEET! :laugh:
