Quote from: Topdownman on March 31, 2018, 16:19Sound deadening was fitted in the doors (I used Wickes flashband) and focal speakers fitted. I made up some mdf brackets to mount the new speakers and painted them to stop them soaking up moisture. This does make the doors sound better shutting and improves the speaker sound quality.I have to say, I was a bit underwhelmed by the focals as they do not go very low in bass frequencies. When I finally got round to fitting an under dash powered sub, they did at last sound good (you still cant hear any music above motorway speed mind). There is not much room under there and very few mount points so I ended up making a platform that would give me mount points exactly where I needed them.I went for the Kenwood KSC-SW11 powered sub. Fitting that was a nightmare job, seat out, lying on my back with feet sticking up in the air or in the bins and having to try to take every tool or part I would need before I wormed my way into position.I used one of those flexible rubber coated things you use to fasten things on roof racks with, like a big twist wrap to hold the heavy sub in place so I had 2 hands to bolt it in place but after firing it up and getting a rattle from the sub, I ended up wrapping it around the middle of the sub and leaving it there where it has stopped the vibration nicely!
