Hi all,

Just a few quick pics to show what can be done during a bank holiday weekend when the weather is looking pretty gash!! I was going to write up a guide to show how it was done but I felt I would just be copying this pretty much as that is the guide I used so massive thanks goes out to n_olympios over on TalkAudio as their guide was a great help.

I'm planning on doing another for the otherside in due course for the amp to be housed away neatly so I may write one up after then if people really want it as they would like to try it too but I would strongly advise reading the guide linked above as that is all I used.

I had never done anything as big as this before, I've used fibreglass for a boost gauge and iPod holder in the past but that's all the experience I have as well as a GCSE in making things so it is something I would say is achievable for most given the time and patience as I have spent a good 2 days on making it!

Anyway, here is the build so far:







I still need to find somewhere to house the bass controller and get it OEM looking and then build another box for the amp and jobs a good 'un but that's enough for today! Beer & smoke O clock now and time to enjoy the rest of the bank holiday!

I know this goes completely against the Rallye 'ethic' which is why I haven't put it in for almost 3 years but I've decided I love my music more than a few extra KGs in the back for everyday driving. It slides in and out dead easy so if I ever were to do another trackday or similar it could be easily removed in 5-10 mins.

Now that looks really smart! Carpet looks exactly the same as the OE Peugeot stuff.

Amp and subs in a rallye ? Tut tut

Not wanting to pi55 on your parade but you do know you can buy a sub box that fits just like that from the net ?
Yes

Cheers Matt, even though it is an obvious modification I was trying to keep it as original looking as possible. I must admit though that the carpet match was pure luck as that was all the shop had but I was very pleased with the match Smile

haha I thought it may get that reaction but as above, it's a daily drive car 99% of the time and I like my music. Can't say I noticed the difference with the weight when going for a drive afterwards and it's all easily removable to return to standard if/when desired.

I'm sure you can buy them but it wouldn't be tailored in size to my sub for the right box volume and also to fit flush mounted and that's before the cost as this cost £50 tops, maybe even £40 to make myself.

Ahh I see. I had one in my old car but never bothered to make the box to go with it - might try and butcher it up to go with this as I still have it.

Would this full Genesis system be of interest to you? It is exceptional quality and cost me over 700 pounds.

Thanks for the offer Manthos but I'm just sticking with whatever is in the doors already as they seem decent enough - just needed some bass in the car too. Sorry for the slow reply but missed your post until now.

Sam - mine was DIY and pretty sure Simon's was too. The reply from bigbadbowen suggests you can buy them online though I haven't looked myself and I'd imagine they are quite expensive. It wasn't that hard to DIY though, just time consuming, but it was quite cheap and I just followed the guide in the first post and bodged along as I needed too Smile

Cheers mate, yeah it's a 10" shallow mount sub but if I was buying again, I'd go for 8" to have less weight and more boot space there but I had all this gathering dust from my old car so though best to make use and build something new at the same time.

Wouldn't have a clue where to look for one though and they're gonna be top whack pre-fab. When I went to get some carpet for mine, a lad in front wanted a fibreglass box built and the local ICE shop on quoted him ~£250 just to build the box!

Looks good, I like how the box flushes right near the back of the rear light. I hate it when I have to take my sub out, need the bass!

What's the part 2 then mate?
