Default Sonata - Audio Install

Hello guys.

Thanks to JB (Autophile) & Gunbir, we just finished with this install on the Sonata.

The car originally had the head unit and the speakers and a small amp. We added the subs and their driver amp. The center armrest cavity acts as the port.

Equipment List:

- Pioneer Headunit P1Y

- Pioneer Speakers TS6975 300w 3-way

- Pioneer 300w Amp

- Hertz Energy ES380 15 SVC 900w Subwoofer x2

- Audison Srx2S 2ch Amp x1

- Connection Audison Distribution Blocks, Power Cables, Kit & Interconnects

- AZ Comp NW502B Pulsating Neon Wire w/ Sound Control x2

- Dynamat for Parcel Tray and Quarter Panels

- Installation & Console Fabrication w/ MDF Wood

---

The complete setup came up pretty clean, the wires you see hanging to the subs are the connects for the neon which could not be hidden.

One thing is for sure, Once you go 15s youll never go back to 12s! The thump of the bass is to die for even though the watts per sub is 180 which can be increased to 600 per sub after the addition of another amp... most probably by next month! Questions are more than welcome i guess i can answer a few having gone through the installation myself.

Regards,

Arush

Front speakers are stock what came on the car, but theyre put on very low intensity. Didnt really bother with the front speakers, needed more sound at the back 'cause the owner is a 14yr old who is driven around most of the time.

The pioneer amp would be displaced for the other audison amp.

Hi guys

In fact many guys who heard this setup were scratching their heads... cuz a few of them spent much more money in their cars and they cant get anywhere near this kinda sound.

No, it doesnt get uncomfortable, unless your 80yr old grandma is back there. Remember, 14yr olds ride back there... The beautiful part is, the rear passenger can switch from SQ to SPL by just flipping the armrest up or down.

While the install may look easy and simple, it is a difficult one. The entire boot is insulated and made air tight. All holes and cavities into the cabin were sealed. Special materials from AZcomp were used to achieve this and Autopsyche's team put in a lot of hard work. The baffle itself was difficult to build as the sides have to fit all contours in that area perfectly.

Im just waiting to hear those subs again on 600w x 2 instead of the current (very loud) 180w x 2

Good one Arush...

gunbir, arm rest down the cones would be vulnerable.

Well they can go for our 15" AZcomp Grills but the owner sorta likes it this way. In fact I am told he is going to add AZcomp Sound Controlled Neons around the subs so they will light up that cavity...

things you could sell to this 14 yrs old.

1. Nice drop down LCD screen. A nice big 10-14" screen with a 500:1 contrast ratio.
2. 6" 2 way component speakers for the rear doors in custom fiberglass pods
3. Playstation for the car (joysticks et. al)
4. A DVD changer in the arm rest.

Damn, 15"ers again!! Damn again make that two of them!! Bigger Damn, the guy is only 14 years old.

Hey Gunbir, whats up with Delhi, they seem to love 15"ers a lot.

Btw, you are underpowering those subs by giving them only 180w. Give them the 600w you are thinking of giving them and they are gonna rumble!!
