    2006 Mazda 3 Worklog

    Hey everyone,

    Been a member for a while, put a carputer in my '95 monte carlo, but unfortunatly that was totalled... So now I have a 2006 Mazda 3, and I'm finally starting the carputer install on this one.

    Sure I could have just taken all the carputer stuff out of the old car and put it in this one... but why bother! I decided that I already had some experience in putting a carputer in, so why not go totally insane on this one. I plan on keeping the car for a while, so it seemed like a good idea.

    My specs for the new car are:

    Intel Core 2 Duo E4300
    ASUS P5PE-VM
    Seagate 2.5" 80Gig
    Lilliput 619

    jl 500/1
    jl 10w6v2
    jl 300/4
    focal 165K

    Behringer DCX-2496 Sound Processor with a DC Powersupply

    This where I'm still deciding... I'm still deciding wether I want to have rear speakers or not... When I got the jl 300/4, I was planning on getting a 300/2 as well, and get a Focal 165 Kbe for rear speakers. Have the 300/4 power the tweets, and the rear's, and the 300/2 power the front woofers... But money is running a little short, so I'm going to try just front speakers, and power it with the jl 300/4, if I like having just front's, then great, and possibly get a 450/4 to replace the 300/4 for some extra power.

    Either way... Here are some pics

    Some Fabricating of the screen... Sorry I don't have more in process pics, just got too excited and forgot about the camera. All I need to really do now is get it down to my uncles body shop to paint it.












    Started sound deadening today...







    I'll update as I go... I've had the car since november but I've been waiting until now cause I have college, and that comes first... plus I have extra money in the summer with work and all...

    Hey, just giving a little update. I've been working on a little of everything, got the trunk, the floor under the back seats, and one of the doors sound deadened. Got half my fiberglassing for the sub enclosure done... I'm almost done with all of the wiring. I Just need to do the "Big 3", and get a ground for the system.

    I ran all the speaker wires to a terminal block, and all the wires for my vfd. This way it would be much easier to take the rack, including two amps and a computer in and out of the car. Not to mention hopefully making things a bit cleaner.

    I don't have any pictures of the amp rack on its own yet, but I put some pics of it up in the car.















    Thats me



    If anyone wants a different angle or something, just let me know

    nope its a single din I had to cut up... Actually did the screen in january during my wintrer break from school, just been too busy with school now to get it painted... that and the fact that I don't have a carputer installed yet, theres been no rush.

    worklogs seem to be more about you showing the process rather than having any questions answered. at least that's been my experience. keep up the good work!
