    Very nice! I wish I had a garage to work in.
    I've got a budget of $1,000. That should be more than enough.

    Very nice work considering it was so cold. Glad you didn't break any plastic panels. That's always my biggest fear when pulling panels in the cold...but this is Arkansas so our cold is like a warm Summer day to you
    There comes a point where you just gotta be yourself for better or worse.

    I broke one clip on the back of the passenger door. Nothing major. It all went back together fine.

    Summers are very nice and warm here... but winters are cold.

    Couple updates (per my original post):


    The new mObridge DA-G2.PRO arrived this morning.
    I removed the DA3 and replaced it with the new unit... sounds the same.



    I pulled the door skins off, and replaced the MDF speaker rings with HDPE ones:

    Awesome job and great write up... Im on the planning stages for a very similar car (2017 BMW X5M).

    So very interested in your build!

    Hopefully mine will look as nice as yours when Im done with it

    The new mObridge DA.G2-PRO has 10 output channels, which is what I needed (9 actually).
    It also has a new algorythm to upmix a center channel (which I'm not using - but maybe in the future).
    These are the two main advantages over my prior mObridge DA3.

    I spent about 4 hours tuning the new mObridge DA.G2-PRO unit today.
    It's a bit more work than my previous Helix DSP-Pro, but I believe I have got it sounding just as good.

    The advantage with the Helix, is that it has a built-in RTA, and can auto-tune (helps to get the baseline EQ'ing done).
    The mObridge has none of this, so I needed to do RTA measurtements with REW, and then manually adjust the EQ settings for each (and every) speaker.

    My original plan was to also get a new Helix DSP-Ultra (when it is released)... but I'm not so sure now. After properly tuning; the mObridge sounds REALLY good.
