I might just have to put those in my 09 Accord.

Do it! A pair of Acoustic elegance, FI ib3, etc woofers will tear your car apart in the lower frequencies. It's insane how easily they can reach down into the teens with authority. The hard part is finding quality music that reaches down that low

I like the knob placement. Nice work

Car at dealer to fix warped rotors at only 22K miles. First the caliper slide pin issues on the 8th gens and now the premature rotor failure on the 9th gens.
At least it's covered under warranty.

Tech tells me that if the carpet was the same color that he would have thought the system was an OEM upgrade offered by Honda. He kept comenting on the install being so clean so I had him sit in the driver's seat and crank up the vol. The poor guy damn near shit himself.

Hey there
Nice build.... It looks amazing and am pretty sure that it sounds good as well. Did you have issues with the mounting depth of the ID speakers on the front door? The speakers are like 3" deep, right and we only have like 2.7" to play with? And for the back panel did you have to widen the speaker holes as well? And did the tweeter hit the plastic panel when it was installed? Thank you

Yes, the door trim around the speakers needs to be shaved as does the rear shelf trim around the speakers for these to fit. This modification however is not seen when it's all bolted back up. The holes in the doors needed to be cut just a tad so that the speakers would fit as seen in the pics, even with the adapter rings. The tweeters do not hit.

On the back of the box and on top of the box. If you have good quality amps like JL audio, you don't need to worry about vibration effecting the internal components of the amp. This system hits as loud, as clear, and as hard as the day I installed it.

ACR-1 Remote mounting





Middle location didn't work, so I had to put the knob on the end and modify the plastic surround with a dremel tool to get it to fit.





All finished:



Box for W7 built to JL specs, now for some trim peices using 1/4" MDF





Ran out of the carpet I used on the box, so I had to use another type for the trim peices for now.



Fold down seats only to see more carpet! Stealth amp mount install FTW!





This system POUNDS and is CLEAR! Worth every penny. Big 3 upgrade can be seen in my sig.

Onto the next project.....
