Full charging system and stereo upgrade


im in the process of upgrading EVERYTHING, here are some pics and descriptions.


parts used:
Kenwood KMM-BT515HD head unit
Sundown Audio SA-10 x2 in a prefab box (for now)
Rockford Fosgate R1000-1D
Sky High Car Audio wiring (1/0 for battery and alt, 16g for speaker wire, and their rca cables)
Odyssey PC-1750 AGM battery (trunk mounted)
"Q-Power" 6.5 coaxial speakers front and rear

I started by purchasing speakers and mdf mounting rings, then installing all 4 speakers.










added some sound deadening mat to the rear deck



had to use the mdf rings as spacers to make the magnet assembly clear the door bracing



Then i decided that the original package tray was just beyond saving, so i made a new one with some felt, cardboard, and time.



no grills included with the speakers, so i decided to keep them hidden.



new tray installed, fits like a glove



then i began routing the 1/0 power wire from the front to the rear. special thanks to Pipe Dreams Fabrications (Malibuguy) for the use of the lift.



wire is routed along the factory fuel/brake line path, then around the gas tank, next to the exhaust heat shield and thru the spare tire well to reach the battery in the trunk.



Once again, thanks to Pipe Dreams Fabrications (Malibuguy) for the welding of the battery mount tabs



battery is fully secured, nothing short of a serious accident will move it.



since the original battery location is now empty, i decided to mount a distribution block and connect the original positive cable to it. the cable on the left side is the charge wire from the alternator, right side cable goes to the battery. This distribution block will be used for powering everything else im going to add, such as headlight relays for hi-watt bulbs, and possibly a light bar mounted in the bumper.



here you can see the upgraded ground wire on the passenger side, as well as the overall engine bay. The intake is actually part of my charge piping from the 3e turbo car i used to have, the 2nd filter is where the blow off valve was attached. This has been removed and the hole has been patched/ welded so now it just has the large filter.



The wires harness you see here consists of the rear speaker wires, head unit power, and remote turn on for the amplifier, we fully loomed it and routed it under the carpet and seat mount bracing, then behind the interior panels into the trunk.



this is how the trunk looks at the moment, i am working on a way to mount the amp and keep the box in place. the battery is just to the right of the amplifier.




I will be posting more pics this weekend after the new head unit is installed, and i will be upgrading the front speaker wire as well.

Me and Malibuguy will be working on an alternator upgrade, ill post pics of that too if it turns out like i hope it does. My car has no a/c or power steering, so there's alot of unused space in front of the engine...

More sound deadening on the rear deck. Cover it all.

On my Paseo, I used smaller pieces to fill in low areas, and then used large pieces to cover large areas.
