  • Speaker Upgrade

    Decided to upgrade all the speakers (front and rear) from the Vibes to JL Audio C2-650x speakers and also dynamat all the panels.

    FRONT:

    Dynamat on front door panel



    Speaker mounted onto the dynamat



    REAR:

    Lined rear panel



    Lined where speaker sits so the speaker is not directly on metal



    Finished result



    All the speakers are 6.5 inch diameter..the speaker depth is 61.9mm and this is just about the maximum depth u can fit in the rear without using spacing rings.

    The quality and difference in sound the JL's are amazing, cannot believe how much better they sound compared to the vibes.

    Bring your ear plugs as it will be on loud at incarnation 😜

    Looks good! I see you didn't seal up the front doors but did for the rear speakers. any reason for this?
    Do you notice much difference from the deadening?

      All steal panels on the front doors are sealed with dynamat, just you cant see it in the pic as its covered by the polystyrene, if you remove that you then get to the door panel itself and thats the bit that is lined with the dynamat. It definitely makes a difference and its a must do if you want your audio to be as good as it can be.

        Thanks, I think I'll give it a shot when I put mine in.

        So did you appl inside/ outside shells and cover the holes with dynamat and put the poly back over the top, or did you just apply to all the panels and not cover the inner shell holes up?
