I have a few more of the Accord that I can post up...including some cutting of the inner fender to get the compression drivers partly outside the car.

Special built midbasses on top. Motor from Illusion Nd-12 on IDQ8 drivetrain.

Below is a Genesis version of the 5" Revelator.
yeh what he said. the 8s were badass but having kids is expensive so they were sold a few years back to someone on this forum.

Quite an interesting read on the HOMster there, but it gets way over my head really quick. Interesting though... might be able to reproduce his results without even having the knowledge/experience to back it up. Thanks Patrick for a wonderfully-documented experiment!

Not for the taint of heart when it comes to cutting metal.

First picture is of the old CD2 driver poking out of the fender well of my old Accord. These were on minibodies and I would have put them further back (actually had the horn body outside of the car) but this is as far as I could go without rubbing my tires during a lock to lock turn. The white stuff you see is the paint and primer that I ground away. The entire area was taken down to bare metal. It was later painted black to blend everything in and prevent rust.

Next I tapped the motors up really well. Waxed the tape a few times with mold release wax. Then as a final precaution I spray glued the trunkliner to the motors. The spray glue served two purposes- to physically hold the fabric in place while I mounted the drivers and being petroleum based, the soon to come resin would cause it to peel from the tape on the drivers. So that got saturated with resin. There were no dry looking spots left.

Third picture is the same motor with a few (lol) layer of glass on it. I think it ended up being almost a half inch thick when it was done.

And after it all dried for a few days with the motor in place to prevent shrinkage, I pulled the motor out of the mess. And I was left with a perfect mold of the motor to rest on sitting outside of the car.

I think this was like 2003 or late 2002 when I did this.
