The speaker wiegs 3kgs, it has a 2" voice coil (air cooled with a vent on the back of the huge ferrite magnet) the voice coil is aluminium /polymide, the basket is heavy duty steel
The magnet, voice coul is bigger than those found on many 12" or 15" speakers
the effeciency is 95db (1 watt at one meter) and it is eight ohms - it has a huge power handling for an 8" speaker (it was the most powerful i could find this size when i built the speakers - 450w )
I have hardware / bits like heavy- duty speaker cable, pro-grade audio cable, acoustic foam etc that might be useful to you - and some electronic components like passive infrasonic/ high pass ("subsonic") filters you could use for your front door speakers
I may also have sourced a suitable amp for the sub/ rear speakers (online, i don't have it) and will be getting the full amp specs soon
I'll defo take the sub off you next month mate email me details of price,
I plan to purchase new component speakers for the front and 6.5" singles for the rear,
I'd appreciate it if you could recommend a new amp online to power the speakers and you sub,
I'll be able to post more detailed pictures of the car boot space in three weeks time when I collect it,
Here it is on the left,
But different alloys on it now,
stop short of selling your soul to the devil lenny , I feel something warm inside when I look at throttle bodies mmmmmmm
no soul selling involved mate, already living with the devil
Got a good deal on it,
Yes the throttle bodies sound sweet too, engine was developed by Yamaha and Toyota
Twin cam 20 valve 4A-GE
Keep it standard or at least keep all of the standard bits, they're getting rare as standard cars now.
I'll keep the engine standard in terms of induction box and not putting a turbo on it,
But a greedy stand alone ecu will be fitted aswell as a 4-2-1 manifold finished with a varex muffler,
Bomex body kit with TRD spoiler and a nice set of rota's
Congrats! That is one very clean looking engine. I reckon this car was looked after very well since the owner was a mechanic. How is the interior? And where did you find it? Thought the car was gonna be purchased next year lol.
Btw, there is a crowd up in Dublin doing trade in for alloys if the ones you got are not to your taste.
www.route66dublin.ie. You have to call into them though to get a quote. They have a big selection from what I can see. Never deal with them so far though.
Tell me about working random hours! I am on call tonight and fingers crossed it's quiet now.
I've not saw any pics of the interior yet mate,
Says its got CD player with standard Levin mats which are worth around 60 euro second hand now,
I p.an to replace carpet anyways and. Have an interior upstairs so its all good
He's just done timing belt too,
Says speakers and all are completely standard, so that's great for me to upgrade.
No dodgy wiring with extra gauges or anything not specified on wiring diagrams,
Thanks for telling me about the guys taking alloys,
Do they trade for cash ? In the event they don't have anything I want ?
Plan on fitting a set of rota's next year,
I know I had planned on buying next year but I managed to pull a few strings,
I had 10 holidays left in work too, so I'm being paid for them instead of taking em,
Helped speed up the process,
Woohoo! Nicely done Lenny. Can't wait for the pictures. What mods are already on it or is it a stock car?
p.s: Do you not sleep? re post at 12:49am? lol
I'm working 3-11 this week mate,
I was up last night researching,
Its 100% standard except for alloys, clifford alarm and an extra exhaust,
The standard exhaust is supplied for MOT use lol I might get a steel pressed plate made up for it,
Tack weld on for NCT use only lmao instead of for race use only.
Its a 2000 black BZR 170bhp
Existing owner is a mechanic, has just done timing belt etc.
Paid deposit, picking it up in 3 weeks
I'll stick a bomex body kit on it with TRD rear spoiler across the months of next year,
Will look just like the one I missed out on last week
If it was around here, and I saw that on the way home from a pub, you would have to relieve yourself down that exhaust wouldn't you. looks like a old passat est and the Mat black is a big thing in the dub scene,
So I'm driving through town yesterday and saw this guy, it's a VW estate matt black, not sure of the model, but look at the exhaust, really? And the wheel trims, they were grey plastic and must have stuck 6" out from the wheels.
Phil that is very much the in trend in the euro style scene,
Purchase an 80's Volkswagon ,
Fit some coilovers,
Stretched rubber on wide wheels,
Deep rims, some fit Porsche rims with the badge still on.
Put excessive negative camber on rear wheels,
Mixed with stretched rubber this is called the "slammed" look,
As if clockwork orange foot came from the sky and slammed it to the road,
The motorbike style exhaust tips add to the German styling,
Sticker bombing doesn't belong there though, that's a JDM thing for Japanese modification,
But the matt paint or even pastel colours is very much in trend,
Rusty panels coated with laquor on old German cars is in theme with the slammed rat look aswell,
Its all art baby
