Yeah it seems like a sensible install option for those old school subs with huge Vas parameters.. and leaves a reasonably usable cargo space to boot. Ugly being fine as vans arent exactly pretty in the back end anyway ;)

Until then, Eric got started on the new roof console idea.

Warm white LEDs for the roofmount...

And 3 monitors (one for reversing, the other for in-cabin use for the back of the wall, and the last one is for passenger side view outside the car; to eliminate the blind spot that a wall causes in a car).

While I was finishing all this off, Eric jumped on carpetting the door pods.

Oh yeah... waiting on things to dry on the dash before sanding and shaping, I decided to start framing up the back :P


Anyways... back to the dash...

An epic, all MDF/carpet dashboard that is complete modular and serviceable with minimal fixpoints. And the sound quality staging/imaging from these cheap speakers is incredible. I have not heard anything like it.


Now, we have a wall to finish :)

^^^^ and I couldn't resist the plates :P hahaha.


Overall.... sound quality is off the hook.. and it's yet to be tuned :P SPL..it was a gamble. it was either going to play really loud, or really low. It's worked out to be loud to the ears and not to the meter. It got a 140.8 to start with, but it managed 136dB @ 20Hz. haha. The subs need more power. They want to get louder, but they aren't getting enough grunt to play with. So a monoblock upgrade is definitely on the cards.


I'll do a walk thru video of the build shortly to show off the electrical work that has been involved with this project. It's the only way to show it off, as pictures do nothing for wire work.


That's it for now. All that's left is the back of the wall and the body.



So... stay tuned :) And thanks for the interest so far.

5 years 9 months ago #32 by Tezzating
Well considering it looks like all Jaycar gear thats pretty awesome.. IMO its more of a party van than an SPL machine anyway, so meter numbers arent that important really ;)
