Build log - 2011 jeep compass audio overhaul

2011 Jeep Compass W/ Boston acoustic package.

Planned build will be to retain stock aperence nice clean pods subs will come out a little but I need to retain as much cargo area as possible as well as access to the spare and have wife's "ascetic approval"
8" midbass retrofitted into each door

Pods at dash/low on A pillars. Rear passengers will have matching pods high on B pillars. Each pod will hold 3-4" midrange and super/normal tweeter(need to see size restraints of box but I have my eyes on some 1" super tweeters that I think will work)

Rear "tailgate speakers" retrofitted with 6.5-6.75 3 ways (going up from 3.5s)

Subs I am planning on fiberglassing the drivers/passengers quarter panels to fit 10/12s (again driversize will be determined after measuring box volume but I want dual 12s)

Amped with 2x 5ch and a 4ch(I can't do 3x 4ch with a mono block due to space.) I want my amps mounted above my subs and the 4ch in the middle of the back seat and 5s + a 4ch works best with this idea.

I also might add a center channel pod holding 2x 3-4" and a tweet but I need to do some test listening to a mono signal befor I do this.

Thanks for taking a peak front doors are currently underway and I have the 8 fitting in stock location with no visible fiberglassing.

I cant seem to post pictures ill try uploading to Photobucket and trying that way

I also realized that I goofed and clicked the wrong version of these when I purchased them and have the 8ohm so I shot a quick tutorial of how I test speakers I buy. if your interested check out my youtube channel the views are appreciated

pictorial coming soon I just need to organize the ~30 photos I took as well as shoot a video for those that prefer to see it actually done

hey guys video has been shot and edited to reduce length as much as I could. If you are interested in dropping 8s into your doors or just want to see how I did it take a look below


next up is dash pods I just want to give the ds18s a good listening to see if I want to keep that brand through the build or switch to something else I wanted 3" mid-ranges and also saw Daytons were suggested on another build Im following so we will see which route I take. not sure if I want different branded drivers everywhere lol.

The install shop that I used to borrow the oscilloscope to tune my amps with is no longer around so I stumbled across this neat little kit and just had to try it out

stay tuned for assembly, testing and review.

unboxing JYE Tech DSO138 DIY Digital Oscilloscope Kit link below if you are interested


also I have my front speakers and tweeters on order so more progress will be coming on my build shortly as well.
