    simple box build - with my new apprentice

    The victim this time: 2012 Honda Civic. Leaving the stock premium sound front end in (for now). Simple box for between the rear shock towers. SounDigital nano power will be mounted upside down on the parcel shelf out of the way.

    - stock front end and head
    - Cache CLOC+d high end line level convertor/line driver
    - SounDigital SD250.2 nano amplifier bridged mono (300 wrms)
    - Diamond CX Black 12" subwoofer
    - custom built vented enclosure

    I've brought on a new apprentice - my 10 year old daughter is now in on the action. I figure if nothing else she'll learn discipline and hard work. As if swimming, dancing, church group and cadets won't lol. She's a busy kid.

    Solid build. I like the choice of equipment. The box looks simple and clean. I'm sure it looks like it belongs in the trunk and sounds great. Those little SD amps are super neat. I'd love to put one or two to good use sometime in the future. Your assistant looks like she knows what she's doing

    The funny thing is, I bet Jordan does a better job than some of the 'professional' installers around.

    Thanks man - the reality of business is not everyone is willing to (or wants to or needs to) pay for a full 'glass build or wild enclosure. This one is a perfect example of adding thump to the factory system. For $800, the customer got everything on the list supplied and installed. Including taxes. Very palatable for the average consumer wanting boom. And because I sprinke a little Bmoney on the box, you know output is maximized for the small package and price. I don't even have to hear it to know he's going to be perfectly happy....

    Did the install today. Myriad of problems lol. The loc had connection issues (the speaker leve input block plug wasn't loose - but causing intermittent connection) so the sound would cut in and out depending on how the harness wiggled. Then I come to learn the car has an aftermarket bluetooth system that cut the ign power to the radio to cut in telephone sound. Everytime the radio shut down (and the internal amps outputs went to zero) it would cause feedback in the sub as the loc and amp are still powered up at this time. Fuckin wonderful lol.

    On the bright side - VERY surprised at the output. Single 200wrms 12" sub with 250 wrms put on it from an amp that fits in the palm of your hand. It thumped pretty fuckin good! Esp considering the compromise of using the factory radio.

    Here's to hoping the starters i have booked go nicer tomorrow

    finished and in the trunk - I tried dark graphite automotive carpet and LOVE the look against the charcoal trunk liner the car is equipped with. This is my go-to look now instead of matching the trunkliner...
