2011 Terrain aftermarket audio system...Finished
Started the installation on this back in April and completed it a few weeks ago.It's an SLE1 with 4cyl and base 6 speaker system.We kept the stock head unit and bypassed the ANC system naturally with the T-harnesses I build for these vehicles.Ended up using the 2 front low level signals and leaving the rear signals mute.I measured a full range 6.6v unclipped signal output so setting the gains throughout the system was based on pulling only 4v from the HU as my processor's sensitivity range was maxed right at 4v.This gave each output channel a solid 5v's...clean and unclipped,perfect for the amplifiers which max at 5v.
I got a lot of the ideas for this system from Fred Lynch's build a few years back.I really liked the idea of using the spare tire well area for the amps and subs.The amp rack/sub enclosure is a combination wood and fiberglass mold finished in carpet and duratex.False floor was made of 3/4 MDF and carpet that matches the stock carpet almost perfectly.Using this area of the vehicle allowed us to put the kind of power we wanted without sacrificing usable space.
So I'll start by showing the sound deadening photos and work from there.
