Hi Folks

So this was done a while back, been too busy to upload the pics, but finally got em done with some help.

And as usual we strip it down...





Whats going in?

The front stage: The SEAS Lotus Reference Set



closeups...





Note separate crossovers for midbass and tweeters.




The Rear Fill... HERTZ HCX165 coaxials






The Subs... SEAS Lotus SW250 10" Subs, three of them






The Amps... Audison LRx 4.1K and LRx 1.1K









The HU... Pioneer AVH-P6850DVD








The Vehicle Dynamics Processor... Pioneer AVG-VDP1

Cool SEAS Lotus SQ Monster - 2007 Honda CR-V (Contd)

Custom MDF rings made....



and mounted on doors



Front Midbass installed



Rear coaxial installed





Tweeters go on stock location






Stock HU



HU Removed



2007 CR-V Dash Kit



Antenna cable adapter



HU installed in dash



Customer wanted to retain steering wheel control that he had with the stock HU.



So we did an IR Remote - Steering Wheel interface. IR transmitter, seen here installed above A pillar.





Press a button on the steering and the HU gets the corresponding IR commands.

The reverse camera...







The VDP







VDP means more wiring...



Work begins on the rear of the car... MDF board replaces stock floor board.





Figuring out equipment locations



New Floor Board carpeted and finished



test fit again



A trim plate fabricated for the floor, gives the amps a flush look





Boards and Sub Enclosure go into the Paint Booth

I agree. Incorporating the steering wheel interface is slick. Where are the rest of the pics?

Whoa! That's some install, Gunbir! I LOVE it!

3 Seas Subs? Somebody listened to your car huh? :P (Or has your sub-section changed since then, again?)

Lookit the finish on the sub-box and the floorboard! I LOVE it! *Green with envy, waiting to scratch-up the sub and the floorboards with fingernails*

The new LRx 4channels let you give more power to the fronts even at 4ohms front and back huh? I didn't know. That's really nice. Lots of configs possible too! Mmmmmmmmmm...

So how did you guys feed the speakers? 4ohms + 4ohms itself, with 140x2 to the front and 130x2 to the back?

More upgrades/expansions? What else is left?????

Like sk456, I was also wondering at the choice of HU. The owner didn't want an IVA200? Or is it that the owner wanted the VDP, and the VDP needs a Pio front-end?

nice install gunbir. how many coats did you apply to the sub box to get that finish. but honestly I prefered the earlier install with 2 subs (one on each side) as it left more space in the rear. BTW the subs box should be lifted about 12mm.
