Hmm since sub arrival will take some time here is a update on the mid bass remounting done.

Earlier the midbass was below the door panel mounted like this..



but I wanted to mount it from above the door panel as some sound was playing inside the door panel. So I mounted a ring on the earlier spacer to fill the gap between the door panel and the door frame.



the door panel was cut and damped more...



and here is the final result



The midrange and the tweeter mounting are still pending as the frame is yet to be made but will be done soon.

The mounting was done with help of my friend Harpreet (Bullet guy at the meet)

Thumbs up

Holy Moley!

That looks very good to me. Almost the best way to fasten a midbass to a Swift door. I am sure there's a tremendous improvement.

One question - did you ascertain that there is no leakage where the mdf and 'what looks like Aluminium' ring make contact with each other?

One more question, do you have a pic of the part where ET steps out?

Nice work bhaiya, the midbass must be fitting snug. Also like the way the ring/grill is finished.

So at this stage how much damping has gone in?

Looks good, l_b_m. I'd seen an identical install in a Swift (with 3-ways, that I'd mentioned earlier someplace).

The spacer-extension-method was used there also for th mid-bass (but it was all-MDF spacer). Now if only the lazy-@$$ owner of that Swift would post pics!

ya there is nearly 20-30 % in the midbass output.

no there is no leakage as double tape was applied between them

Hmm next time I will surely take.

Approx 20 sq feet in each door.

I would love to see that. May be I might learn something from it.

HI LBM,
Nice work on the door pannel,would love to know how you changed the grille of swift door pannel,and why you used steel spacer that too on woden ring,did u wanted to increase the weight for speaker mounting so that the midbass gets solid base!!
Tell you something 99% of people on this plannet demonstrate and rest does experiments,you are in 1% category!!

Cheers!
Happy diwali to all,Safety is must esp for childern!

Says the man who himself is keeping his new setup a secret!!

Amit - If you were in Delhi, we would have already picked you up & tortured you over some Alcohol & Kukkad & by now gotten to know what you're getting for your car

P.S. LBM - If I'm not mistaken that's a milled Aluminium spacer, right?
