The doors had to be modified to hold the midrange and the passive crossover. I know it is not very elegant solution but it does the job and I didn't ha... Show moreve a door pocket before.
The tweeter was mounted on the A pillar. Very nice solution thanks to the mounting kit that came with the component speakers.
Here are the rear coax and the subwoofer in the back of the car, Soundstream Rubicon 12. The box for the sub is a sealed box with 1.5 cubic feet internal volume. I tried a 1.0 cubic feet before and it didn't go low enough for my personal taste.
Please, put any comment on the guest book regarding this installation. It is very simple and it performs excellent for daily cruise around college. Show Less
Here is a shot of the head unit, Clarion ARX7470. Good head unit but is a tape player. Sometimes is a pain because I hardly play tapes. Not a very good... Show more picture though.....
A better shot of the head unit.
The signal from the head unit goes to the EQ/Crossover Clarion EQH5100. This unit (under the passenger seat) s interfaced to the head unit and it is handled through it. It has plenty of features but it doesn't have the fancy screen savers that the DSP unit has. The CD changer is underneath the EQ/Crossover and it is very picky with burned CD's.
The amplifier is a Soundstream Rubicon Lil'Wonder 5. I had my doubts when I saw the specifications but after listening to the amp I felt in love with it. It is a very clean amp and powerful enough for my personal taste (not loud enough for my brother). The high pass filter and low pass filter are set to 150Hz. The amp is mounted under my seat.
