New ride...new project! I picked up my new car (07 G35) a couple of weekends ago and it had a few issues to take care of. First up was the auto up feature wasn't working properly in the drivers door, also the drivers door speaker was blown, both problems require that door panel to come off. We had some beautiful weather yesterday so that's where I started. The window problem was when you'd hit the auto up the window would go up to the top then drop down about 4". Basically it lost its end point setting. there's a reset button on the motor that has to be pushed to reset the end point on the up/down positions. I did the procedure and problem one fixed ! Now on to the fun stuff...blown speaker replacement. Being audio people, factory junk just wont do, ya know. I went to my arsenal of speakers and brought out a pair of the Volvo Dynaudio 6's and the 8's. The 6's dropped right in and didn't sound to bad, but the big ol' 8's were staring me down. Yup you guessed it, more bass up front is never a bad thing!! I grabbed the jig saw, made a template, and got to cutting. I needed a bit of depth extension so I cut a couple 1/2" spacers. I then applied some damping mat to the inside and outside areas where the woofers were mounted. Right now they are just running of the head unit (Kenwood), but once the SoundStream 604 gets installed these things are gonna be one heck of a solid foundation to the front stage in this car. Now if I can make the neo8's fit in the kicks.... hummm?
No announcement yet.
