This details the installation of my custom stereo system. The front speakers are Infinity Kappa Perfect 5 1/4, the rears are Infinity Kappa 4 1/2's. So far, its just reunning off the Alpine 9827 head unit, but the amp should be here thursday.
This is the stock component system and these are Infinity woofers compared to the stock 6 1/2's,
which didnt sound all too good
Because the window is so close to the spekaer mount, i needed a one inch spacer to mount the woofer. Also, I mounted the crossover behind the door frame.
I mounted the Kappa Tweeter to the Subaru bracket with 3M Double Sided tape, and that shit is strong. Finally, the door with the new compnent speaker system installed.
My amp finally came, and i was able to set up my entrie system. Here are some pictures of the install, the amps, the sub, and the overall system! As you'll see in the pics, i built a small raised panel that I mounted everything to.
These are both pics of the Elemental Designs speaker amp and wiring. I ran a power and ground direct to the battery, because grounding to the car caused terrible alternater whine!!!!
Here's another pic of the amp, and also the Infinity refernce mono amp witht the 1.5 farad capactior.
Finally...the completed project. Sounds pretty good too!
