I have had this little 914 for a few years and decided to redo the install (Again!) So the kit list is now as follows -

Mcintosh MX5000 & MPM4000 meters

USD Audio processors - 6 channel active rack mount processor & 30 band EQ's

2 x Soundstream Class A Picassos, each running bridged, so 2 channels instead of four, one for each side

Soundstream Class A 10.2 running Velodyne DF-10sc upfront in footwell.

KEF Q300 (home) drivers in kicks.

3 x Odyssey PC680 batteries and a DD10 controlling it all :sunny:

Lots to do..

Awesome... everything from the wicked equipment to the choice of cars is grabbing my attention and then some...

Hi guys and thankyou for the encouragement :)

The amp build is a mix of MDF and Birch, the finish is a stone fleck paint, which was used extensively in the 1990's - I reckon it suits the car/install. The whole boot is going to be covered in a black vinyl covered panel with glass windows, so on opening the boot it's a bit more stealth (and acceptable at Porsche meets!!!!)

EDIT - Yes Mr Audiophile, thats the stuff.. Made here by Plasticote.

No, sorry Horns and midbass in teh doors was the last install, Now I'm just using teh kicks running the KEFs with the Velodyne sub. Simple.

After one disaster trying to cover the kick builds - My glue had gone gloopy as I had it stored too long so it didn't stick properly and just peeled off in strips as I was trying to manipulate the vinyl.. (Thanks to AS trim for some more vinyl and glue!) And I managed to get it done this evening, deadened the inside of the build with 4mm deadening and then painted in glue and got stuck in... Was a bit worried as this is teh most complicated shape I have trimmed yet, but turned out well

























Driver and trim ring in place.





And with grill fitted.
