My Ski pass Sub Install (lots of pics)
 
Hey all, I decided to install a 10" sub into the ski pass on my Vert, Apart from the terrible stock speakers when putting thr roof down and driving on the freeway you cant hear anything.

Its a Pioneer Shallow 10" Sub @ 200 Watts RMS ,running off a 255 Watt RMS Jaycar Responce Amp.

I didnt want any bulky boxes taking up space in the boot so i made an Infinite Baffle/open air enclosure, using the boot as a large open box.

It sounds MUCH better then i thought, Really Bassy and loud. Heres some pics of the install, I recomend this to all Verts not sure if the same ski pass system in a coupe..

Yeah i added Pioneer 6.5" splits up front and 4" rear, When amplified they didnt sound much louder then running off the HU since there firing into a open door, so i left them just running directly off the HU, I experemented with speaker enclosers/pods for the front doors but to do it properly you have to cut holes for the magnets into the door so you can bolt the pod/speaker into the door rather then the door card but i didnt want to butcher up the doors.

Still sounds good, ill show you at the next S.A.M

You almost have me motivated. Looks sick. Most coupes have split folding seats though so I'll have to come up with something else.

Running the speakers from the amp doesn't necessarily make your speakers louder, but at higher volumes, at lower ones too, but more-so higher ones, makes it much, much more clearer than off the headunit. I'd suggest giving it a go again with an amp and play different songs a bit above normal listening volume, and you should be able to tell the difference. (And then thank me for it)

Yeah i will give it a crack again one day, it sounded good with some songs and not so good with others.
