Re: Karpe's Active Audio Install

Andy, please tell me you put more deadener on the outer panel...?

Those SLS's are going to laugh at you if you didn't. lol. My ID OEM's shook the chrome door moldings with a full layer on the outer skin and a full layer on the inner skin.

Otherwise, good to see the install has begun!!

Re: Karpe's Active Audio Install

Yeah I did, that was about half way through. The idea with the CLD tiles is that full coverage is not necessary. what matters is adding a certain amount to each resonant pannel. so every flat surface got about a 25% coverage. But the Outer door skin got the most and largest pieces.

Tomorrow morning I'll have some free time to trim up the the MLV to make the door card fit, as well as complete the driver side.

I don't know if its all psychosomatic, but I feel like I hear the music better at lower volumes and that's with the stock set-up.

I'm going to be out of town for the next few weekends ( bachelor party in Charleston, and working the warped tour FL dates) so I think a lot of this build will be put on hold until after then. I was hoping to have everything done for the long drives up and down FL for warped but I seriously doubt it.

Oh good! Keep up the work man, I know it can suck at times, lol.

Hopefully you can get the front stage functioning in time, that will give you a lot of quality time in the car to use your remote and tune.

Phasing is pretty easy, as well as time alignment. You'll really want to spend some time fine tuning your crossover points/slopes and getting into level adjustment and EQ. The Eq'ing is a bitch by the way, lol. I'd suggest playing around with the graphic before you get into the parametric.

Re: Karpe's Active Audio Install

Teaser Pic. I wish I had more to take pics of...

I finally got my Hakko parts in from Hong Kong, and picked up a cheap heat gun and a little thing of shrink tube.
I also bought a 1" thick slab of HDPE that's 12 x 24 to make baffles out of.

I need to hit up FurryLetters for some more TechFlex and shrink tube. I'm hoping to start building the box and running the wire in the next two weeks before homework becomes unbearable.

My To Do list:
Build box
assemble wiring
finish dampening driver door
run the wiring
Cut the baffles
buy install gear for the CDA-9887, and install
Install the drivers
Kill myself trying to tune

Re: Karpe's Active Audio Install

Ahhh! I told you to buy twice as much techflex/heat shrink as you think you would need! haha, j/k. I had to order twice from him too.

Progress looks good so far, keep us posted!

Hey Matt, have you seen the Pioneer DEX-P99RS? I don't know if you have been on DIYMA lately.
