Processor- Alpine PXA-H701
Front Stage- Seas Excels(7") w18nx's with LPG 26na tweeter's
Rear Fill- JL Audio TR690
Subs- 3x12w6 V1 Subs
Deadening- 4 rolls of Raamat EG with 6 yards of Ensolite
Wiring- KnuKonceptz
Monitor- Ebay'd 7inch widescreen
Battery- Kinetics
Amps- Rockford "25 for Life" amps. 2 75's and 1 150
Lots of MDF, Vinyl, Plexi and Seude

Also would like to thank pwnt by pat who is helping me along with this build up and who convinced me to replace my current audio Thanks buddy, my wallet hates you.

as far as EG is concerned 30 mins in a fridge = perfect for working with. me and pwnt by pat got the trunk completed today, and gutted the entire car. Now the 100% black interior install begins.

also my front stage has slightly changed I still have the LPG's but I bought a set of mini horns for the front they will mount under the glove box and under the steering wheel. the mids will go in stock location.

stay tuned for more updated pics

I bet the full stereo is EASY 300lbs. figure 130lbs in batteries, 45 lbs wiring, subs= unknown, mdf= unknown, deadner=130 max. amps i think were 60 lbs for all.

is it worth it to me? ya I can't wait to hear it right now theres no radio in the car... a week of that on long drives=the sucks

I think I wil be good with 2/0 ga wiring in the whole car and 4&0ga grounds in the engine bay+big 3. but who knows i might need a bigger alternater.

I can barely hear anything inside the car.. and thats while its gutted. So when everything is back in place should be pure quiet.

MORE PICS ARE POSTED BY PWNT BY PAT

I believe 2/3's of a roll was used on the floor and 1.5 rolls in the trunk and a good bit of ensolite on the floor= she sounds quiet. Now all I have to do is complete the final pieces like seude headliner and black vinyl pieces. This will be the first ever 100% black on black acura legend I can't wait.

The roof consists of 2 layers on the roof then sunroof gets installed then a layer over the sunroof then ensolite on the headliner when installed.

Rear deck got 1-1.5 layers of deadner and then factory recovered rear deck installed with JL 3 ways.

First time we turned them on for shits and giggles. That annoying vibrating sound is the one sub the dust cap is loose. o well just felt like posting this for no real reason

The car currently has no horns. After Lou's constant complaint with him having trouble fitting his foot and the horns we just finally ditched them, and plan on going with Seas Neo tweeters in fiberglassed pod on the window trim.

The subs/amps are currently being sold for a louder and more hidden install. The 2 75 amps and 1 45 amp will be replaced by a ARC audio KS900.6 amp and a beefy unknown amp to support the new sub(s).

He is planning on getting a RE 12XXX sub(s) for his 'thump'. I'm still trying to tell him that one will be plenty but he won't listen ha.


I think thats all the progress that has been made, we have swapped the dash and can now start glassing parts for it.

Sorry for no updated pictures.

New amps and speakers.

A diamond D6 1000.1 Amp will now power the subs at 1ohm and not 4ohm.

A eclipse 3242 will power the rear fill aswell as the front stage's tweeters.

A eclipse 34230 will power the mid's in the doors.

The rear fill will be changed to another brand (blew the JL's) and the horns are being replaced with a nice set of seas tweeters (most likely)

Also the fiberglassin for the navi trim/tv has begun and if it comes out like we hope you've never seen anything like it.

I'm sure theres some things I'm forgetting but that's the major changes.
