A BSW subwoofer install due to the lack of bass from my DSP stock system.
BSW subwoofer kit thanks to a fellow board member.
Stock subwoofer (approx. 2- 5" woofers), Dinan rear bar (eye candy)
Removal of stock system, quite easy.
Don't forget to unplug the subwoofer with a simple pinch of the plug
Small subwoofers produce surprising sound of stock system, but definitely not enough for me.
Planned amp location, BSW recommends back of rear seat, but for now the passenger side seem right for me. I am still able to get to the plugs and fuses with ease. Velcro will assist with keeping this removable carpet door in place. I placed small pieces of wood in back of the carpet with screws that are covered by the amp when installed. Also, drilled 3 holes in the bottom of the carpet and installed small plastic rings for the ground, power, and speaker wires.
Amp installed, location provides maximum eye candy without being in the way. I already adjusted the amp for a week or so before installing. However, carpet door is still easily removable without disturbing wiring or amp connections.
Subwoofer installed, this was a bit of a pain because the supplied bolts still turned when attempting to tighten the nuts. I was a bit frustrated by this and installed the bolts and one nut to secure the bolt. Then, mounted the subwoofer and placed a second nut without difficulty of the bolt turning. Used black plastic harness to conceal the speaker wire of the subwoofer box.
Everything else is behind the carpet. Overall, I am pleased with the single 10" subwoofer to supply bass since I am not looking for a boom boom system.
Now off to a bigger project waiting in my garage
