Sub - Fulleh Sik Mate

ive been a bit quiet on these forums over the last week since my uni exams finished and for good reason too. Ive been working on a lil project which saw me build a "custom" amp closure for my foci.
I remember seeing a amp enclosure on the OnFocus website how to's, but when i went to fetch the finer details, the website didnt work for some reason. So here i was needing to build and design it from scratch myself which i wasnt looking forward to, coz im not an ideal perfectionist when it comes to measurments n cutting.
But even though it was a bit of an ordeal getting it perfect, i did get it and im very pleased with the results. Not only that, im happy with the wiring side of things too, coz i had to improvise a bit not to cut the stock speaker wires. The idea was quite clever if i do say so myself. And to top it all off, it sounds GREAT too. Im surprise how good a stock deck sounds with a good quality amp.
I wont bore youz with the finer details, but if anyone wants to know how i did some things, feel free to ask and ill be glad to offer you my ideas.
Ill try n get some pics up tomorrow when i take some photos in the daylight.

Re: Sub - Fulleh Sik Mate

I've been half heartedly looking at fitting a sub to the Focus, really miss it since the Falcon, would like to see how you managed to set yours up! I have a very good idea how I am going to do it, done many many car audio installs before in all sorts of vehicles, but am always interested to see how others do it, get some ideas!

Re: Sub - Fulleh Sik Mate

Here are some pics of my work. Hope they come up.

You might see a bit of uncarpeted wood on the side of the sub. I only did this yesterday to stop the sub rolling around when im driving hard around corners. What i did was drill screws right on the very edges of the sub box (to not make leaks in the box) and attach screwed on a hook at the end and use the child seat harness point to fix it in place. This required a bit of filling with some cloth to stop the hook sliding across the harness point.

Also, the amp enclosure did not require any screws at all to sit where it is. Its just a relatively tight fit, so should i need to remove it say to change a tyre, its simple to get it out of the way. I basically wanted to do it this way to avoid drilling new holes all over the place.

Re: Sub - Fulleh Sik Mate

Yeah, nice work, love the custom made box. It's a shame the subs can take up so much useable boot space, because everytime you want to use the boot, you have to beware that you don't damage the sub.

I like the custom work though, very well done, two thumbs up. Cheers for the pics!

Tim!

Re: Sub - Fulleh Sik Mate

Haha, so true buddy! My mum is so against the whole sub thing, she sees it as a waste of money. But the other day when i was hiding the wires n doing the final touches, she was outside and i went to put in a Thompson cd n she comes up to me n goes "OOO, that should sound better with the sub". No b/s!
Oh the irony! But thats the way it generally is with my parents. Everything i buy is a waste of money, but if its somehow linked to Cro, its bloody fantastic. LOL
