John's 93 Corrado Stereo Install


December 2001

The goal: Fix an existing system install and upgrade the wiring and sub.

The original system included a 15" Orion sub, fiberglassed into the spare wheel well with an unknown box size.  The sub was leaking due to the previous fiberglass construction on the wheel well frame.  The wire was undersized as well so an upgrade to 4 gauge and a stiffening cap was in order.

The fiberglass sealing in the lower part of the wheel well was fine so we just constructed the rest of the box to the appropriate size for the JL Audio 12W6 (1.25 cubic feet)

Then a false floor was created to house the sub enclosure and the amps.
