Cool California build thread

Well thought I would get this thread started for the up coming week.
Looking forward to doing a total of 6 370z's including one roadster.
Pics will be uploaded at the end of the day with full details as you all come to expect from my builds.

As for those of you that do not know: I was flown to California for 9 days by 6 people to do work on their 370z's. Here is that thread SoCal: BIGAUDIOFANATIC will come AND build it..

Next up we have threeseventy

Basically he wanted to keep the stock head unit and add a little more Bump. We started this last last night and I knew we would never get it done, so this morning I cam and finished it. Today "day 2" was two installs.
So we installed:

Polk DB 6.5's
Boston Acoustic amp
Kenwood KSC-SW10

The car




Installed new speakers and ran new wires.






Soldered and heat shrink as usual


Installed


All wires organized




Power wire ran




All stock wires ran to the new sub and high level inputs on the amp


Amp installed


Wires cleaned up




Sub installed


All and all I was impressed with the quality of sound that the amp and sub were producting as they were getting high level inputs.

Finished the build yesterday but forgot finished pics.

NOTE The bose system is not something to have be taken as a easy upgrade. I ran into a few problems and one still exists, alternator wine!! We are still trying to figure out if there is a way to get rid of it our last hope is a noise filter or ground loop isolator. I will be putting up a in depth write up on the bose system and upgrading it. In the end if you even think you are not going to be happy with the bose, either get a base or the bose system without nav, because once you have the nav you can not take it out.


Rear view camera and speed bypass installed.






The bose harness


Rear camera

Today was my very first convertible z!

Let me just say it was a learning experience. Much more to deal with in terms of where things are ran and how to get them to the trunk.

Things installed:
Focal 6.5 polyglass components
Alpine PDX5 "future expandability"
Sony
Metra Axxess

The parts


The car




The polyglass woofers did not need much of a spacer just the one it came with.






Tweeters installed


Crossover mounted


Same for the other side




Taking middle apart


This gave me an idea


Wires all ran


Amp installed


Rear camera installed


Me and the car
