    I haven't even installed the new stereo yet and I'm already buying new Gear.

    Just bought a pair of these tonight: http://www.polkaudio.com/products/mm6501

    Because there are tweeters in the pillars that I didn't realize last week that even existed. Now I have a Brand New Pair of MM651's in the box that I don't need. Off to eBay with those!



    I bought this Amp a few days ago http://www.jlaudio.com/xd400-4-car-a...plifiers-98261 it has not even arrived and I am already wanting to buy this one: http://www.jlaudio.com/hd600-4-car-a...plifiers-98221

    I have a sickness.



    I'm going to stick with the XD400 for now but I will run a Spare 4GA Power cable for future use for when I upgrade the XD400 and move to the HD600

    I will be interested to know how much the few extra pounds and current draw of the sub and amps affects your mileage, if it's measurable. No particular reason, just curious.

    Given its a small electric hatch, I think you would be just fine with the power of the 4 ch XD...unless YOUR ears can hear a difference with the HD? However, since you are looking at JL...some of JL products are sooo designed for a small compact like yours. The efficient, small, and powerful XD700/5 and a MicroSub would be a cool combo IMO...(I still like the Alpine Type-R also) Can tuck the single amp (vs. two) away and have one power run and all cable going to the same location. Clean! JL has been doing a great job with the MicroSubs since the 90's...going with a passive sub allows you easily pull it out if need be.

    It looks like the 8" CP108LG-W3v3: fits like a glove....its about the same size as the Alpine Type-R enclosure I posted...which in the 2 Ohm version would pull more power from the 5 ch above. Here is a photo posted by Stunt822 on the mynissanleaf forum:

    As far as buying and selling....you know how it works...its best to kick around design ideas as long as you can before making impulse purchases. Then, get the best you can afford....should hold off the upgrade bug for awhile.....but YMMV. lol!

    The extra weight does nothing. I carry hundreds of LBS of tools and I don't notice any loss. I do notice some loss at higher speeds with all windows and my sunroof open.

    I calculated that if I play the stereo at full volume for a two hour trip I should lose around 6 to 10 miles.

    But I'll test it out and see and I'll post back.

    That JL Audio Sub looks good there but the 2013 Trunk is different.

    My trunk does not have that Wall anymore which is pretty cool because there are 4 tapped bolt holes that I think I am going to use. Maybe I'll make an enclosure that makes that wall again and bolt it down to those screw holes.

    Oh I see, the '13 is different. Building a custom enclosure to fit is such a better way to go. It really is not that hard. Then you could pick the sub of choice that works in the given space. Could even make it look stealth...or show...whatever suites your taste.

    OP given that I do audio systems as a side business I have come across a lot of customers worrying about weight. The biggest one was a Prius owner that want much better sound quality without a lot of weight. We decided a sealed box with a alpine type r and a alpine pdx v9 5 channel amp was the best bet. After the install I talked to him 2 months later to see how everything was going. He told me he say no increase or decrease in his fuel consumption nor MPG. In your case it's a little different, with an all electric car you have to be much more careful with how much of a load you put on the system, I am not entirely sure what it is designed for but I am sure a 1,000 watt amp is out of the question. I would recommend going with a RF PBR500X1 as these are some of the smallest amps you can get as well as small in weight. Alpine type r subs are amazing sound quality for the buck. You can go with a pre build box or if you really want to save on weight go for a fiberglass built box.

    Side note, JL to me is way overpriced for what your getting. There are many higher end name brands out there that will give you higer end quality for the same if not less money. Zapco, image dynamics, audison, and massive just to name a few.

    Thanks but you're a week too late. Amps and Speakers are all bought. Most likely starting the install this weekend coming up.

    I'm not concerned with weight, I guess you didn't read the whole thread?, I carry hundreds of LBS of tools with me, I need 52 miles round trip to go to and from work. When I get home at night I have 48 miles remaining. If I lose 10 miles because of a 1000 watt stereo all is still fine.

    I'm not the first Leaf owner doing this, there are other Leaf owners with two amps already, the Leaf's 12V Battery has a 135A charger, There is another Leaf owner who told me he ran two JL amps that had Fuse ratings of 115A total for a year with no issues whatsoever. He also told me that he just updated one of his amps and now the fuses are at 155Amps! (that might be a little dangerous since the charger only supplies 135A, The charger is basically the same as a Gas car's Alternator.)

    I was thinking of making an enclosure to fill that open gap that is no longer taken up in the 2013 Leaf but I think I'm just going to make a board that is wrapped in carpet the will have all the gear screwed to and then that board will be bolted down to those 4 threaded holes which are so conveniently placed for me.

    The Sub enclosure will be free-standing so I can move it around as needed based on what I am carrying that day. I will connect it to its amp with a 15' speaker cable so I can take it out of the trunk or place it in the front seat if need be.

    Thanks,

    Sal

    +1 for the Infinity Basslink. I added one to my 1992 corvette convertible and have been very pleasantly surprised. The EQ functions allowed me to integrate the sub with my existing Bose Gold speakers and amps. I used a Clarion 2-DIN head unit for USB, Bluetooth, etc. capability. Sub is behind the seat in the storage compartment. I can still use the rear glove box, too.

    I've been surprised at the SQ, especially after expecting the ragtop to kill the bass.

    Of course, a major concern was how to get decent sound and not butcher a very nice (under 40k miles) car. The Basslink was a good compromise, and it has more oomph than I expected, while still being fairly musical.

    No Butchering being done on my Car. The only way you'll tell that I've upgraded stuff is by opening the Trunk.


    Here's a pics with some gear, just waiting on Amp that should be here this week.

    Working on the Trunk layout in AutoCAD:

    That's an 8" by 28" Board that will fit between those two pillars in my trunk.

    I do store a lot of tools in the trunk when going to jobs where I'll need them. So I was thinking I might mount a piece a plexiglass elevated above the gear with some risers. There will be air space all around and I could also drill holes in the top of the plexiglass for ventilation.

    I really like the XD line. I might have to get rid of the JX and get an XD for my sub:

    Well I bought a JL Audio XD 600/1 and the HD-RLC remote potentiometer

    Now both amps will be from the same line. It'll be symmetrical. And with the XD line all the connections are on one side making a neater install.



    I may buy another run of the orange 4 GA wire so that I can store the fuse holders in the motor compartment and then there won't be a need for a distribution block as well. So the board in the trunk will be less cluttered as well.

    I'm updating the AutoCAD drawing now. The nice thing is that the XD400 & XD600 are exactly the same size. So it will be perfectly symmetrical.

    I found a new distribution block/fuse holder from Knu that I am going to use, it will reduce the area needed on the board.

    Here it is:

    What I need now is cable to be used for getting the high-level signal info from the rear speakers to the AudioControl LC2 and also RCA cables.

    I want RCA cables with good snug connectors and that come is small lengths, like 12", 18", 24" because I don't want extra cable zip tied off, I want it as neat as possible. Do you know of any?

    As per High-Level speaker source cable I'd love to use a 2 or 4 conductor cable with an outside jacket in black. Hard to find, all I find are white.

    Gotta wait for more parts now :(

    Here's the layout so far:






    I need to figure out how to attach the wires to the board, I need something that holds really well but is not noticeable.

    I use plastic mounts like these for work all the time. The adhesive is used only to put them in place and allow you to screw them down. I use 1.125" drywall screws to screw them to the wall. I don't put the screw in the center, I put 2, one at each end right through the plastic and they never come off. But they are not really neat. Not neat enough for my trunk.

    The XD line is very nice. a very goood value over the HD.

    I have a Polk DB1212. I think that's the number. I'm also looking at the JL audio subs. They are very nice.

    The new sub amp is 600W at 2ohms. So that's limited my choices.

    I agree...when one moves away from Bazookas, Basslinks, etc to something like a clean and potent 3rd generation W6 ...you tend to never go back.

    That HO110-W6v3 with 600 watts will knock your socks off with how clean and how hard a single 10" can hit in a hatchback.... when done right you can get a bass up front effect.

    Yeah it's HOT. I think I'm going to order it. then I can leave the other sub in my old.

    WLDock, thanks for posting those links. when I mount the amps I'll figure out exactly what I need and have the RCA's custom made to length.

    Just bought it, $629 shipped. Should have it by the 24th.

    I like the fact that the enclosure has a patent!

    Thanks! - All the gear should be here by Thursday. But my design needs to change. I've decided to install a full sized spare tire as well. Two nights ago I took a detour on a road I never was on and I hit a really big pothole and burst the tire! SUCKS! - The LEAF does not have a spare tire to save on weight! bastards! - So while sitting there waiting for the Tow Truck I ordered a doughnut and a jack but I think I'm going to go all out.

    I was at the dealer today to drop off the wheel and tire (they are replacing the tire for free, the wheel is fine except for a little 1/4" by 1" rash spot that they won't cover unless the new tire won't seat properly.) and while I was there I got the part # for my wheel, they sell it for $440 and $131 for the tire.

    I found the wheel online for $269 + $30 for the center cap from a place an hour away.

    If I add the wheel then I'll raise the floor and put a cavity for the spare and mount the gear under that cavity with a Plexiglas cover so you can see the gear through it.

    Gotta really see how much of the trunk it'll take up first, if it's too big maybe I'll just use the doughnut.
