Audio Update / Excellent soundstage and easy to Control
The Eclispe sub was removed from behind the driver's seat. In it's place we installed another "glovebox" that will hold two laptops, camera bag, tripod and tools with room to spare.
This fiberglass enclousre (wickedCAS.com) has been on the market for a while. Very well made with ~1.75/1.85 3^ft of air space. Nazar supplies vinyl that is a very close match for the Z. Your installer will be responsible for covering the enclosure....he does not ship them with the vinyl already affixed as far as I know.
The installer finishing up with the last sub just prior to tuning. The enclosure's speaker face was painted Silverstone + three coats of clear.
The amp sits at an angle and the 20 farad cap and line driver are hidden.
After tuning the subs were removed. He drilled 8 holes in the box and attached it to frame of the strut tower with screws. The screws are covered with silicone. Nazar recommends using a "thread-setter" kit.
Youc an contact he or Justin for instructions.
The Plexi with the "Z" outined in carpet proved too flimsy, was not really my taste and did not showcase the hand assembled transistors in the TRU amplifier. This one is MDF covered in carpet with a 1/2 inch Lexan insert. Much more stable.
By simplying fading Front to Rear the subs are easy to control. Truthfully, the SEAS Lotus "The Reference" components provide an outstanding soundstage on their own. If I really
want to feel
the lower frequencies I just fade to the middle.
I used to group Playlists on the HU according to EQ settings. Not anymore.
Finally, here is the Kinetik CD1400 battery. Terminals not included.
This setup is primarily for SQ, not for show. I did want to be able to see the amplifier. The OE Nissan carpet for the hatch area was atlered so it will fit the floor and cover the Lexan.
