Awesome - congrats Carl!!
That's great, congrats! Well deserved, this is a great looking install.
Well deserved trophy install looks fantastic!
Beautiful car - well chosen and finished - amazing custom / and stealth install - beautiful example of craftsmanship keeping with the luxury interior - great choice of gear (I'm partial towards those amps ) - and the trophy and results are the icing on the cake!
Thanks all, much appreciated!

Not sure how I missed the last part of this, but looks great. Congratulations!

Out of curiosity, I thought a coupe was a 2 door? lol

Yeah it's a bit odd. Both BMW and Audi are doing the same thing. So for BMW a "Gran" coupe is essentially a saloon (e.g. four door). For Audi, for instance with the coupe models A5/A7 they also come in a Sportback version which is saloon. Very confusing...

Love your install and attention to detail. If I ever upgrade to the 4 series, I know what to do!

Did you try/test running only your 6.5" underseat woofer without your sub? I have a 1 series and am running the audiofrog 6.5" at the same position with no subs. I was wondering if I can get away without any sub or if plugging the door sills vents will help lower distortion or get more depth.

Those drivers are not capable of creating sub bass. Add a subwoofer and use the GB60 in the pass band they are intended for.

What issues do you have with the sill vents? They essentially make the under seat "enclosures" infinite baffle.

As I have a f20, space is at a premium. I feel that with the type of music I mainly listen to 80s/retro, I can do without a sub. I just do not like the sound leakage to the outside which I believe is mainly from the Door sills.

That’s the reason why I was seeing how I could optimise the 6.5 in that space.

Hi,

I'm still in the process of finalising the rebuild of this install, primarily in the trunk area. The opening event for the season was last sunday and I had EMMA Judge training on the saturday and on the friday morning, the car was more or less gutted :eek:

Anyway, got most of what I needed in place and drove up to the venue in Jönköping on saturday morning and participated in the EMMA Sweden Judge Training and then judged 7 cars (5 sound, 2 install) and also entered my car in Master OEM on the sunday. The judging was somewhat challenging as I was new to it but also because there is a new competition CD for the 2018/2019 season, but all good in the end. :blush:


First entry in Master OEM and finished in second place with a decent sound score and a 401 total. Had 2 point reduction on the install since I hadn't updated the documentation which was expected. Very happy with the result since I had almost no time to tweak prior to the event. :)

I didn't spend as much time documenting the rebuild as i was extremely pressed for time, and only focused on the shots required for the EMMA documentation required for competition. But I can provide some nice pro shots taken by a photographer during the competition on sunday (NB: not my own pictures):

















All for now, on to the next competition which is May 5th!

Nice updates on the car! And Congrats on becoming an EMMA judge as well.

I always like the EMMA Competition Discs so I looked into ordering the new 2018 disc, but with shipping to the U.S. it's over $75 (you can only get it bundled with the Rulebook as far as so know). :surprised: :(

Really nice install. Can you send a link to that signal harness to pickup 4 channel and remote wire from the amp in the rear please?

Congrats on the competition success!
