Speaker wires pulled through factory loom into the door! One of our specialty in most project and one of the difficult part!

Image

One of the reason for life time installation warranty from NEOGLOW Designs

Image


Image


Image


Image


Image


Speaker installed on tough baffle to ensure perfect fitment and performance

The Enclosure Build!

With the requirement of losing no space as priority we were really worried!
Do we have the space to install the 27V1 as per the manufacturer requirement!
Focal recommends ported enclosure and someone who has listened to this sub in this configuration might be able to say they are spot on!

So we followed the vehicle body contour and build the box first!

Image


Plugged the measurements into bass box pro and found that its exactly the measurement required to do the smallest ported box for this sub! Wow! we got lucky!

Image

Image

Image

Now this is where it is supposed to be installed!

Image


Lets start!

Image

Image

Image

With the trim panels on!

SHOK Industries fuse block! Hmmm! Its interesting to note!
Some of the loudest cars in EMMA competitions these days have something or the other from SHOK Industries!

Image


Wires installed and hidden to give it an OEM look!
Image

Two main fuses for Battery to battery link and Battery to Alternator link

Image

Neoglow Fuse block and Competition grade 4 AWG wires for the amps

The rear speaker setup!
We declined to install 3.5 inch coaxial in the last pillar! Instead we did this! Based on the experience from another FJ

Image

Image

Image

Image


Next comes front pillar tweeter and mid range install!

Test fitment!

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image



Spray painted to get an idea of the shape and visual appeal

Image

Image



Sanded down to start the paint job! OEM Finish is the aim!

Image

Image


After painting it twice we are satisfied!

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image


Now lets try to install this!

Image

Image

Image

Image


Roof installed back after wrapping in black

Now the trunk part!

Amplifier and cross over installation!


Before we started!

Image


WE built a custom amp rack to accomodate two amps, distribution block and front speaker crossover!

Image

4 number of 4 inch fans installed to ensure proper air flow through the enclosure!
Fan speed controlled to avoid fan sound in silence!

Image

Image

Image


In the trunk the amps goes in!

Image

Image

Image

Image

Some of the unique tuning tools with Neoglow Designs only!

Image


Image

With the floor panel on no one will ever know whats under neat! Plus tested for over 100KGS of weight per sqft

Image

Image

Image


We connected the oem stereo aux into the factory aux and cut a port to install the Alpine USB cable for easy access!

Image


The lone alpine Headunit!
