Karpe's Active Audio Install
 
Welcome Ladies and Gents, to my first ever install! and first Active system.

The Vehicle is a 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee 3.7 and I'm shooting for stealth look mostly because I have no fab skills and limited tools. I'm gonna try my hardest to get the 8's in the doors without to much altering. On the Founteks, I'm gonna shoot for stock location in dash and reflect them off the window, but if they sound too bright then I'll glass up some pods and put them on-axis

The Gear:
Alpine CDA-9887
Sundown SAX100.2
Sundown SAX100.4
Peerless SLS8's
Fountek FR88's
Stereo Integrity MagV4 d2


Install Gear:
http://sounddeadenershowdown.com/cgi-bin/index.cgi
14 CLD Tiles
1 roll Extruded Butyl Rope
1 sheet MLV (split between the 2 doors)
1 sheet 1/4" CCF (split between the 2 doors)
1 8oz can HH-66 Vinyl Cement

1 Velcro Strips, adhesive both sides, 10-pack
Kicker PKD4
Streetwires CBR44M
Streetwires 4awg Interlock ring terminals
Home Depot Aluminum Flashing
FurryLetters expandible sleeving


I'll start deadening as soon as UPS drops the stuff off and get pics up. Installing will be enough of a challenge for me... I still don't know SH!T about tuning.
Onto the Pics!

Hell yeah! This is going to sound soooo sick! Forget about tuning right now... just worry about the install and do it right. It's so much easier to get it right the first time than having to go back and make changes. Tuning is pretty easy to get the drivers to sound good, but it will take some trial/error, tweaking, blood/sweat/tears, to make it sound great; But that's all part of the fun. I remember I would read something over on DIYMA, run down stairs, try it on the stereo, run back up, find something new, lol, repeat same process.

I'm looking forward to install though, can't wait!!

Sound Deadener should be here tomorrow. I'll be attempting to do the doors when I get off work at 3ish.
My KNU RCA's should be here Wednesday.

I bought my speaker wire and wire terminals for easier running and switching drivers.
I should have placed an order with FurryLetters already but I got lazy
plus I still need to build my box and floor and get some carpeting and grommets.
