Default Corsa - ReICEd

Most of it has already featured in show off already, but WTH, I just spent so much time and energy (not to mention the aching hands and fingers and a minor cut from the dremel that i just bandaged - or band-aided) installing everything together (and Rahul + 1 more friend too) that this deserves to be shown-off :devil2:



JBL GT5-A604 Amp

Boston s60 Front components (Only tweeter visible)



JBL GTO938 Rear coaxials


ICE Front-End

That's a neat install. I like the tweeter location.
What wiring you used?

Wow! You mean DIY??

You're using a Pioneer 2950 HU?

Q: but why Pioneer 2950 HU????

Ans:
I see a car PC on the dash....



Though seriously, the HU right now is nothing more than a glorified volume controller...
The source is the Car PC (which can also handle anything an uber expensive HU will do and more)
The amplifier is in the trunk
The HU just acts as an intermediary volume knob

I could remove the HU but:

a) It would leave an ugly gap in the DIN slot
b) I like changing volume using an ergonomic rotary knob rather than reaching out for a touchscreen each time I need to adjust the volume

Didn't feel a need to use premium cabling so used an earthquake make wiring kit worth roughly 1K or so

For that purpose you can use external USB sound cards like Creative XMOD

and for that black space where the HU is you can install a pocket...

I am currently using an M-Audio Transit USB sound card

As for the HU, it is kinda pointless to take it out since it does not hurt me in any way and i do not gain naything by taking it out, do I?

The tweeter location is stock. THe original grilll was cut out and the Boston grill was used.

How does the monitor stand up. Does it not vibrate like hell when the car is in motion?

Yes, setting up the tweeter took less than 10 mins of dremelling

No, the monitor came with an industrial strength double sided tape mount
The mount was stuck on the dash while the monitor was attached to the mount over rubber grommets
The stand does not mount thanks to the padded mount while the rubber grommets prevent the monitor from vibrating

Another alternative (possibly better) is to use a rubber suction cup although the current method is holding up well for now
