OK, looking to start this, poss this weekend.

I have a rather large exhaust on the rear and the drone is starting to do my head in. Also I am looking to install my nice new sound system over the coming months...

I've got a set of speakers,leather door cards and new door pods to stick in. I understand that the doors get wet a little so I need to keep the xovers in the car... Any recommendations where I do this? Mine are a little big!

Can anyone recommend how to sound deaden the doors etc

Do I put the stuff on the inside behind the motors etc? Or just where the door car meets the door?

Excuse my dumbness, I'm better on computers and not really a car modder Very Happy

As for the boot, I guess I do all of it from the back seat area and into the spare wheel well

Should I put the crossovers and amps in here and wire all the way to the front?

Hey dude, check out the garage section, page 2. Look for my thread "My grey mk3" this might give you a few idea's.

To keep your door cards dry, replace the inner door skins (some kind of plastic sheet should do it, taped into position)

You could always mount the amps behind the rear quarter panel's.

Any other question's, feel free to ask Very Happy

Keith, have a chat with your local DECENT Car audio shop...

From memory Dynomat seems to be pretty good and reasonable value... this should do the rear... you'll wat to do from under the rear seat back....

Only issue is this will add weight, and you'll be surprised just how much too! Sad

The weight wont bother me... I'm 16 and a half stone Very Happy

Also I'm just as interested in sounds as I am speed.. she's as old as rave music and she needs to play it Very Happy

At the moment I've got the stock shitty speakers in mine and they are really starting to get on my tits when I'm trying to listen to tunes ... I can only feel the bass when I put my leg on the door speaker No

I have to source some Dynomat then... where in the 'ford can I get this s*@!? Very Happy

In which case look into Audioscape pods too...

Dynamat... go speak to local In-Car Hi-fi place (or Bazza, as he's local)

Could pop round one day dude and have a butchers at what you've got.

I'd suggest you fit the pods first, apprently they are really good, before you go adding the sound deadening. Definately fit new skins to the door though to keep thing's dry.

Use accustic foam in your boot, not Dynamat, foam blocks the road/exhaust noise. Plus will help contain the base in the car, listen to my car and you'll see.

I don't do car audio installs, the only experience I have is doing my own, it's sounds pretty good in my humble opinion.

Can help you put the gear in, that way you learn Very Happy

If you check out these, at the end they show you how much roughly you will need, so you can buy the right amount.

BAZZA 'S soundsystem is sweet as mr EVIL you in good hands there

p.s you can buy the foam liner sheet for the doors at GSF OR use plastic sheet
you will also need some heavy duty spray adhesive
cut sheet 1inch bigger than hole spray and stick

do it well do it once, any gaps can have your foot wells filled wi water! steamy times!
also check the 5 slots in the bottom of the doors arent coverd with crap stoppin water get out

and you done Cool


i likes a mk2 wi system innit afro

Niceness... I can't wait to get it started...

I'd really like my sub enclosed in the side wall, but am pretty rubbish with anything other than a mouse and keyboard Sad

I'll just have it knocking about in the boot for now tho...
