I'm new here but not new to Honda's. We just picked up a 2012 Acura TL. Which means my Integra will finally get the B20 Vtec put into it. Today I decided to take the audio crap out of the Integra and put it in my CRV. I will be driving the CRV mostly and the Integra is way loud after I put a header on and it is going to get even louder. I will post photos of the build as I go. It will be two Kicker amps, Focal separateds in the front, Kicker coaxels in the back and a Kicker 8" L7 sub. I'm going to make it all fit under the picnic table. I figured the box design out today and will start the build on Friday. Once I build the box I will figure out the amp rack. It should be fun.

Had to make the bottom of the sub box using fiberglass so I would get more volume and mounting depth for the sub. It is a .5 cubic foot box. Went ahead and made my brackets to mount the box to the car. I had to get creative with the amp rack to fit both amps in there in front of the sub. I'm tired so I will post more photos tomorrow.

    The box is done except for making it pretty. I going to attach a nice Oak piece that will be stained with black stain and apply a few Coates of poly. I finalized how the amps will be mounted. I had to get creative to get two amps to fit in the space. I will post a few photos of it soon.

Worked out the arrangement of the amps. I had to get creative with them to make them fit into the space.

IMG_20200503_140103.jpg I could not use a mount on the bigger amp and had to mount it to the car itself on top two mounting points. On the bottom two I needed to make custom spacers with the correct angle. I made them by glueing 4 pieces of ABS plastic together. Then using a file to make the angle.

Does anyone even give a crap about this? If not I'll stop posting about it. Or do you enjoy posts about putting new speakers in.

IMG_20200511_234536.jpg IMG_20200511_180006.jpg IMG_20200511_180000.jpg I removed the Focal's from my Integra the surrounds where screwed up. I had never tried to put new ones on a speaker before so I gave it a shot. The hardest part was figuring out what size to order. It was pretty easy and turned out nicely.
