One word of caution with Silicon glue if anyone wants to use it. Always use it in open space and take break after 10 - 15 minutes of work to breath fresh air else you will get severe headache and dizyness. Let the sealant dry fully before you close the door pads.
also if you use it in the sub box, let it dry overnight before putting the sub in cos those fumes can affect the foam on certain types of speaker surrounds, it can make the surround brittle - and that would lead to premature failure of the speaker

one great method to ensure it fills in the gaps properly for subwoofer boxes is to wear some surgical rubber gloves then try to press it in by running your finger with some pressure along the edge of the two surfaces you are trying to seal, the rubber gloves are to ensure that your hand wont smell funny nor will it get the chance to stick your body hair together

Correct, @naughty001.

Actually the silicone glue is inapproriate (way too fluid) for sub box sealing, other than the wire outlet (hole). The sub and connector plate is better sealed with soft rubber sheet (not foam) like cycle tube, or cork gasket material etc. Seams are better sealed at box construction time with a mix of Fevicol and sawdust pressed into the seams.

Thanks guys.

I didnt damp as that is stage 2 as per the plan. The vehicle is not rattling as its new

We should be doing it in a couple of days. With a lot of Tbhpians who want to learn FG. May turn out to be a mini-meet.

You have used spacers, but as far as I can see have not mounted the speakers to the door skin, i don't really understand why go to all that effort and not do that, it makes a big difference to the accoustics in the Safari even before damping the door skins, after damping inner and outer door skins the difference is phenominal, trust me have done my installation myself on my Safari, including all carpentry, I built my dual sealed sub box myself and all wiring etc. the only thing i didn't do was the damping as the price difference was minimal. No offence intended just giving my inputs.

Cheers

@ Stefanm, I appreciate the input. I kind of like the way it sounds when mounted like this. After Sumith heard to another safari of my friend, he also liked it. On top of all, we didnt want to cut metal and plastic and wanted stock look.

Yes, damping surely makes a difference. We will be doing that in a couple of days. We finished the install around 11.30 pm and didnt have any energy left

And wasnt damping done? And how much did the sub cost? And its fed from the 1004?
We took only 10 min break in the entire session and it was for the Dominos.

The sub costed me 8K and it is in bridged mode with 1004 for now. But I really like the way its firing now as I don't prefer that 'BOOOOM' for long run.

As Shreyad already mentioned, I need to clean the car first. It is in a total mess now and I have to give it to Concorde Motors for the retro-fitting tomorrow. Will be posting once its done .

I didn't need to cut any metal, as for plastic that's another story, I have kept my install as stealthy as possible only the subs can be seen in the dicky, though at some point i want to mount them in place of one of the jump seats.

I would have arranged one for time being if you had informed.It is really hard to get that paste out.I have my personnel experiences with it.

This was a last min thingy. Sumith actually needed it to seal the sub enclosure and then Ananth.

But I need it sometime soon in my tool box.
