Have not happened too much lately but a few pictures of the updates I have :D
I had to move the GPS receiver from inside the dashboard to on-top of it to get a more stabile signal, much better.
I installed the amplifier for the speakers in the car under the passenger seat.
Doing some cable work.
Installation completed. Very satisfied with the placement, doensīt take up much space of the rearfoot compartment.
I have now got the spoiler painted and installed. What U think?
I ordered today a rearview camera and a diagnostics cable to connect to the carputer for some guages, mpg and stuff. Installation pictures will come.
I have been thinking of installing some subwoofers in the car but canīt make up my mind what and where I should install it. Trunk would be the best place but there ainīt much space, suggestions please.
Here are some pictures of the trunk. The blue box is where the battery is at the moment, I īm thinking of moving it back to the front if I find a new battery that fits there.
Looks like it is coming along. The car is looking good now the spoiler is painted.
Your boot is the same as mine in the S15. I was going to try to mount my sub under the parcel shelf pointing up, but it is very tight under there, especially with an under shelf rear strut brace. So in the mean time (until I work out something better) I have got one of those fibreglass enclosures off ebay that sit in the side of the boot. Like this one: http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI....=STRK:MEWAX:IT Your trim in the boot is different than the S15, but someone may make a S14 specific one. The other option is to lose the spare wheel and make a fibreglass enclosure in the spare wheel area, but I need to keep my spare so that option was out for me.
EDIT: Can't find one of those fibreglass sub boxes for an S14. I could trial fit mine (when it gets delivered) into my mates S14 to see if it fits for you.
Something like this I have in my mind, maybe making the port of the box coming through the parcel shelf into the cabin. If it fits...
I was looking at that option too, but I didn't want the sub pointing backwards. I suppose I wanted to try something different. I have only ever seen one picture of a sub pointing up and I liked the idea of having perspex both at the front and rear so you could see through the box.
Here is the pic:
The space behind the speaker is roughly 21 liters, which would do great for a 10" sub in a closed box. Only thing is to get the airpressure out from inside the panel. What do you guys think? Here is a link which includes more pictures. http://www.sxoc.com/vbb/showthread.php?t=34530
Is it hard to drive and see the screen?
Now that is an interesting way of doing it. I would imagine there would be a lot of expanding foam used there. My problem is that the S15 has storage pockets in the side panels. I would have to modify them to fit a sub in there. Although the idea of mounting amps in there has crossed my mind.
