Ok, so everything is finally hooked up in the civic and I finally have music on my daily drive. Here is what I got.
HU : P-80rsII I believe this is the same as the p-800, sold State side. Black face plate, Sirius / HD radio ready and copper chassis.
RCA's : Stinger SPI6317
4 Ch amp : Genesis Profile Ultra. 4x100 watts @ 4 ohm. Thats the birth sheet, but I think it punches way above its weight. At least thats the way its sounds.
Mono Amp : Genesis Dual Mono 1x400 watts @ 4 ohms. Doubling of power over the PA 400.1
Sub : Same ole MM 12" in a 1.1 cu ft sealed box.
Mid Bass : The SR-6500. Nothing better around.
Tweets : Scan Speak Illuminators, that I linked in the other thread.
The Honda is a great car for speaker placement. The mids are door mounted, low down and way forward. The measured PLD on the Ford was 14" while on the Honda it's 9". I can't explain how much better that is for coherence. A flat dash allows me to mount the tweets way in the corners and the pods allow me to angle the tweets just right. Both tweets are smack on axis. The Ford dash had crazy angles which made tweet mounting a PITA. I think Mac commented somewhere how the Honda's are great for sq installs. Trust me he knows what he's talking about.
The Civics here come with stock 5x7 in the rear parcel shelf. Got rid of those and that opened up a path for the sub frequencies from the boot. Doubling of power and more sound from the sub flowing into the cabin.......
1 x pa 500.4
1 x pa 400.1
1 set of MMC 690
1 set of MMC 6500
1 pair of SR 6500 RR tweets
I sold all that and still paid a few pennies for the upgrade.
So how does all this sound?
