  • AUDIO PANDA

    as many know i need music in my car... well asa i got it... the sound was lets say less than enjoyable lots of buzzing from cheap speakers the head unit was about 5 yrs old. so i began my search for the best audio i could plug in... and with a little modification and jamming.. the projects coming along great.

    DOORs - Polk audio MM651

    Headrest - Polk Audio db461P

    headunit - Kenwood KDC-MP538U

    Iphone/Dyno - cradle (i made it :)

    Next upgrade!
    2Din- Kenwood DNX8120

    That 2 din will look sick. Any plans for a custom enclosed sub?

          should still kick hard if i mound it correctly... aluminum vibrates A lot, so if mounded SECURELY i should be able to make the cockpit a 3D sound pool (after the 8120 is installed)

            interesting idea in cramming the 4x6 plates into the headrests instead of the smaller 3.5's. I ended up pulling the headrest speakers out of my car but you are giving me ideas...

              Those plates destroy imaging and soundstage. Ditch em.

                WHAT there is NO IMAGING a miata... its a convertible!

                I work on car audio for a living and not even a drop top Ferrari has imaging qualities!

                  keep in mind you cannot use a sub mounted towards you... your gas tank is rite behind the passenger and sound doesn't carry through liquid well bass doesn't well .

                  just fyi if anyone wanted a sub.

                    I beg to differ. It's not quite as easy to do in a convertible, but it can be done. You say you're going to make the cockpit a 3D sound pool, but you claim there is no imaging to be had in a Miata. No offense, but if you are a mobile installer and you can't get quality imaging out of whatever vehicle it is you are working on, from cars to boats, you need more training on planning components and where to place them.

                    Also, on subwoofer placement, there are two open air channels that run behind each seat from the cabin to the trunk, it is rather easy to setup a sub to take advantage of that. Not in my Miata, but I installed a single 10" M/A in the center of the trunk, in an enclosure that was mounted up against the trunk latch and was angled towards the cabin. No matter what you were looking for, hard pounding bass, or subtle bass to match the music you were listening to, you could get it, top up, down, freeway, traffic, whatever.

                      agreed... But removing whatever he's talking about won't enhance anything...
                      Imaging can be done but not quite that fine tuned. I'm going for deciple and clarity... Not theater sound.

                        He's talking about removing the plate portion on your headrest speakers. I don't think it'd do much either simply because you still only have one driver in there. I have 3.5" Rockford Fosgates in mine because it offers more overall sound and tunability.
                        Yeah, you're striving for something different, I simply aim to have it all when I build a system, so some days, when I don't want overwhelming decibels hitting my ears, I can adjust it on the fly and have well-rounded sound.

                          agreed... i need that 8120 to save up those settings tho... the sound is incredible inside but top down i have to blair it out... and the tops down A lot

                            No I'm talking about removing the headrest speakers entirely, but based on what I'm seeing I literally think my many years of professional audio advice is "falling on deaf ears."

                            Yeah, that's a joke, and it was funny.

                              lol

                              Then explain how removing the headrest speakers would help. I found that not having them was horrible. Now that I have them, I have them set down at about a 30% output to compliment the volume that the door speakers and tweeters are putting out, and everything sounds much better.
