greetings all..
have been looking around this place for a few weeks and just have to say one thing though.. im drowning in information here..

totaly overloaded.. annyway i am an guy from Trondheim, Norway. 32 years old and mostly done everything myself, (exept the head unit) as you can probably see for yourself is that english is not my main language so there will be wird spelling so you are warned!! : P

my car stereo history have realy been to hell and back



not this car though. : P the first one was an space star that actualy got totaled 3-4 houers b4 i where done with the build..

diddent hear a frikking thing : (
i where almost done with the build, made an box of mdf do house my amp and filters

anyhow inside 2 weeks this got installed:

it is an pioneer avh-3300bt system without nav.
then this one


then i started with this




and continued with this:


and then this came along:


continued the build with this: silent coat, compared to the roadkill(that i forgot to heat up, but installed in abaout 20 degrees celsius.)
silent coat is like butter to install where the roadkill is more like bricks but the silent coat smells more asphalt.
annyway i put in 2 layers of theese here:

oookay.. its not easy to see in this shot

but i am planning to showcase the amp and filters in the hatch closest to the back seat, rebuilding it and get an plate of

glass to cover it and also to show it off, i got some fake black leatherthingy to cover it up to hide the wires and mdf.

equipment:
i got the pioneer head unit, got an hertz hp2x (2*230w) also have already bought a set of hertz mlk 165 2 way component set

from a friend of mine that was originaly going into the space star.

for the front doors i am looking to get some good 3-way set from hertz thats not sounds worse than the mlk165
and are considering the new mlk3 pa set for the front doors,

whether or not im getting a sub in the boot idk. depends on the answers i get from you peoples.
(just missed an 4000 nok deal for an mk-3 set from hertz.. unused costs 17000 nok brand new : (((( im so annoyed abaout that.. )

annyhow thats whats done so far. i am going to drill new holes for the wires so they dont rub against metal and get som plastick protectors to protect them..

but its kinda hard to find the time nowadays he`s now 9 and a half week old the little monster! : P

i am planning to do somthing like this as well:
http://www.diymobileaudio.com/forum/how-articles-provided-our-members/19914-building-door-panels.html .

if i get convinced by you that this should include a sub, i am going to build it oem style on the left side of the boot behind

the wheel.
got to make some kind oh hatch together with the sub to be able to work the tail lights if they go out. not shure how im gona

do that though..
thats all i think
have a good night.
hopefully the "monster" will still sleep : P

ps thank you to take the time to read and post in this : ) and hopefully you got some insight on the hertz/sub question

To be hi est, I've never don't a center channel before. But you can use either or. Some head units have a center channel rca output, so all you have to do is run am amp to it. Same for a processor. I believe the bit-one allows you to dedicate the 8 outputs it has to whatever you like (front, center, rear, sub, etc)

depends on what kind of sound system i order from maestro : P i might have to save up to a sub, and i have only an 2 channel amp now so bleh : P

btw is this maybe a too powerful amp for the mlk165 set i have and the epic mastro 3 way got a rating on 75 and the m line 3-way got an ratino of 95 the amp i have is an 2*220 hertz amp Hertz EP 2X - 2-kanals forsterker, 2x220W / 1x700w @ 4 ohm - planetHIFI.no (url in norwegian)

is this too mutch?
