Lois: ”To make it easier to place the wires I will
remove the carpet and the seats.
In addition I get a better look while installing the subwoofer.”
Lois: ”The seats are removed, the carpet´s next and
after that there is enough space for me to get a good overview.”
Lois: ”Now the car is cleared out, there is enough
space to place the wires…today the wires will be
wrapped in snakeskin and placed at the foot space
which will be easier because I removed the carpet before.”
Lois: ”Okay Martin look, at the back you can
see the two amplifiers and I want you to place
the wires back there…then you move here and place
all the speaker wires together into this tunnel
and then over here…
next you move up here and leave three ends for tweeter,
bass-midrange speaker and bass-low-midrange speaker
…and down here I need about half a meter
of wires for the subwoofer
…at the same time you place the wires for this side
behind the car dashboard and leave the three ends for the
speakers over here as well with another half meter of excess length.”
Lois: ”Hammer, look here…you will now remove the console.
Therefore you untwist these four screws,
take the whole console out, dissolve the aluminium
plate from the steel console and finally
fill all the cracks with spattling compound.
After that you also polish it so everything is perfect
…also the ends… so the lacquerer just has to fill and paint it.
Lois: ”That´s what we´ll do!”
Lois: ”Before I start rebuilding my TT
I want to show you the elements I want to use.
The core piece of the construction is the Pioneer ODR
system with the RSD-7RII and the Pioneer ODR processor RSP 90.
Both devices will convert the signals and send
them to the amplifiers.
For the rest of the construction I use products
of the company DLS despite of the head unit
and the processor because this range of equipment
has proven to do a very good job in
the field of high-imp technology.
I used to work with these products for many years
and I always got very good results from it.
I will use two DLS A4-amplifiers.
This amplifier has 4 times 85 watt of 4 Ohm
and 4 times 145 watt rms of 2 Ohm.
Bridged this means that one amplifier produces
2 times 400 watt rms.
The signals of one amplifier are transferred to
one DLS Scandinavia 3 and also to a DLS Scandinavia 1.
The second DLS A4 sends her signal to one
Scandinavia 6 lowrange speaker
and also to 2 pieces of DLS W308B,
for the time being I have an ESX subwoofer as a
substitute which will be replaced later on.
For the high frequency sector I use a
DLS Scandinavia 1.
It is really big but also contains a coupling volume
and excels by unbelievably fine resolution and the
ability to easily release the percussion from its surface.
For the mid frequency range I use a Scandinavia 3 midrange speaker.
This speaker can transfer about 5 ½ octaves starting
at 150 Hertz up to 7 to 8 Kilohertz.
For that it needs a baffle or better 1 liter volume
so it can show his advantages.
As far as the lowrange is concerned I use a Scandinavia 6.
This is a special woofer by Scandinavia which
is only used as lowrange speaker,
other than the Scandinavia 6/2
which can also be used as midrange speaker.
This woofer should get 8 to 9 liters volume to
reach its top form.
It is a very dynamic woofer which sounds really good.
All of these speakers will be installed on steel rings
including the subwoofer as well.
Right now I can only show you the
rings for the Scandinavia 6.
These rings are furnished with metric drillings
so it is possible to screw the speakers on
them and also to ensure proper support in
the cages of the woofers.
Furthermore most of the rings gather the
lattice of the woofers as well.
Concerning the power supply I use the
brand POWER MASTER.
Instead of the frontal original battery
I put four of those POWER MASTER PM 680
batteries in my rear trunk.
They are placed in the spare wheel recess so
the current path is as short as possible and
also very high short circuit currents.”
