OK I hope this is in the correct section if not feel free to relocate it to the right home.

So a little background on me, I am into highend car audio, autocross & love to drive.
My goal for this car is the best sound quality you can get with the acoustics of this car, I use it everyday & my drive is 40 miles each way.
I will be entering my car in car audio competitions such as IASCA ( http://www.iasca.com/ )
So here is my Plan thus far.


Ok,
So I'm going to start this build soon, just trying to map out the design & layout of the product and install.
I do plan on Hybrid Audio L8se's in the Kicks.
If for some reason I can not get the L8se to fit..I will be doing a 3-way active system L6se, L3 Pro, L1-R2 (L3 & L1 R2 in the A-Pillar)


The Mosconi 6to8 will be mounted on the pass side rear cargo area.
Amps false floor action Distribution on the drivers side rear cargo.
I will start mocking it up soon wife goes out of town on the 14th.

Another picture so you can reference size




good shot of the pass kick




Focal amp is for sale FYI


The iPhone unit I am using is a Kenwood KOS-A300
bad *** lil unit for OEM integration, lets you add iPhone/iPod control, Bluetooth, Sirius Radio and USB. Charges and you can control Skip on Pandora no Thumbs up or Down.
Not sure why this unit was chopped from the line up.

No real boom, I'm a geek so it will be tonally sound, proper attack and decay, sound stage & overall proper reproduction of the artists recording without adding or taking away from what they wanted you to hear.



Here is my mentors car

So I had a chance after work today to start cutting out some chipboard shapes of the floor and started on the power and ground distribution location and design.
I will post pictures when I have more to see than a few scraps of chipboard...

Good ideas for your 500 , I dont think the sub will form a proper wave, I would go smaller to make a nice clean bass note. just my 2 cents worth.

Starting with the ARC10 sealed will change to the Hybrid soon..
But here we go..
.60^ sealed 3/4" MDF with bodyfiller/fiberglassresin on the inside

Checking the fit.. its snug

made the cutout for the sub to fit flush, and mocked up the design

made the rings for the pressed grill (shaped like the Fiat 500 tail lights)
