    Secure down the 2 way distribution block. Each feed is protected by a 60A fuse. The sub amp power wire is 8ga automotive grade wire and has a 3ft run. The main amp power feed is also 8ga and has a 5ft run. No problem running smaller gage wire here since the runs are so short. One of the nice things about having the battery and main power distribution center right next to your amps.

    Not too much of an update today. I have a lot to learn about the Helix DSP software.


    Tidied up the remaining wiring:

    All I did was balance midbass, midrange, and highs by ear and it already sounds pretty fuggin great. Just wait until I actually apply a tune to this thing...

    HOLD ON A MOMENT... Some dude named Erin offered to Klippel test my MW182's. Change of plans. I'm going to pull them out and send for test before I put any hours on them. Rather, I will try something slightly different first. But, need to prep them for use.


    Added speaker leads and gaskets:

    Let these dry over night then mount in car tomorrow. I was going to spend my next 2 days sound deadning my doors anyway. May as well swap mid-bass drivers while I'm at it. Then Erin can have the Dyns for a few weeks to do his mad scientist stuff.

    So I worked on my passenger door today:

    Going to install these slim little sexy Italian suckers.

    The Porsche doors already had sizable strips of CLD installed on the outer door skin. I went over it with another layer of this guys stuff. Rumor has it, the stuff is kind of good.

    Installed some Butyl rope to fill the remaining gaps in the crash bar.

    The only place on the door that resonated heavily with mid-bass impact was this plastic access panel. I didn't have materials on hand to craft a new access panel out of PVC board so just sealedit up with CLD sheets. I noticed a significant reduction in vibration playing bass heavy notes on the door speakers so let it be for now. The doors wiring did vibrate pretty good though.

    So, use some sticky back closed cell foam to hold those wires down.

    Oh, and I installed a smaller / lighter mid-bass to check it out. The Dynaudio MW82's are going off for analysis...

    So I finished deadening my doors today:

    Inner door skin:

    Apply 2 layers of CLD inside. Apply generous layer outside to anything that will vibrate:

    Job complete. No loose rattling harnesses on inner door. Air leaks plugged up. Floppy plastic pieces covered up in CLD sheet to make them more rigid. Good enough for now.
