    the megabass adventure continues.

    get in there.

    its playing open baffle in there, pointing out the vent in the plastic panel.
    being OB it doesnt go quite a deep as the front midbass as that is "sealed" in the door, but it blends nicely and adds some body and punch to the midrange.

    rear speakers are also in.
    not looking very nice right now, but sounding good ;)

    damping the doors and rear panels with bitumen really helped reducing the rumble and wind noise levels in the car.
    well worth the 2kg of added weight :)

    now all i need is a small sub...

    Wow, cool....I remember my days of playing with ICE. Long, long time ago and never too seriously. It's not as "scene" as it used to be though, back in the days of Maxy P :D

    I fitted a few systems for friends back in the day and even fixed a few bodged efforts from so call ICE professionals! Most wanted big bass and had no idea about balance and control. I'll try to achieve something worthwhile in the Jag one day, but my 5 is a strictly on ICE area!

    it's so sad to see the end of the season start with so many posts disappearing.
    oh well, i guess nothing too exciting were written in them anyway :D

    the GTE is about to be sent away to the barn for winter storage, so i figured it was time to flush and replace the coolant, and oil.
    not having a garage to work in really sucks during autumn, but luckily it turns out my rechargeable work-light was even more genius than i thought, and could attach anywhere with a strong magnet, so i managed ok.

    to lessen the pain of not having the GTE around i went out and bought another car though....

    man this car is so great...

    except for the steering feel. ;)

    We have a copy of the raw SQL for all the data but it's too much to handle manually, I can go back and retrieve your posts from this thread if you like? Looking for specific stuff isn't too bad.

    that would be nice if it's not too much of a hassle.
    can't really remember what i wrote about, but i guess it was mostly finalizing of the stereo.

    enough with the holiday, it's time to get back to work!

    [​IMG]

    cat does not approve
    [​IMG]

    also bought a Pioneer TS-WX710A sub to allow the midbasses to concentrate on midbassing ;)

    sooo, remember when i asked if a 100mm remus exhaust would fit the stock bumper cutout, and everyone said DONT BUY IT ITS TOO BIG!!!111!

    i listened, and didnt buy it....



    But when suddenly another used remus muffler appeared in Austria, and i couldn't resist the temptation anymore, and i went ahead and bough it!
    YAY! TO HELL WITH THE STOCK CUTOUT! :v

    Sounds just like i wanted it as well: subdued below 3000rpm and no droning, but once past that its nice and loud.
    middle muffler and cat is still in place.

    the old muffler must have been in a pretty shitty as well, as the car idles a lot smoother than before :eek:

    exhaust sound (crappy video)

    still not hanging properly, as i couldn't find a replacement rubber mount locally today, but hopefully i will get it properly mounted and aligned next week =D
