2014 A22 Custom KICKER/Wetsounds install

Recommended Posts

ID AX

Looked at a full Wetsounds install but I really like the new KICKER marine lineup and the value. Rev 10s were a must and found a smoking deal on a barely used set with a Syn4.

A huge thank you to Mike Simms of Mike's Liquid Audio (chpthrill). I worked with him on a previous ballast install and it was an easy choice to use him for my stereo equipment.

List of equipment:

Wetsounds - Pair of Rev10s with red LED rings and speaker socks, Syn 4, and 420SQ with their new under dash mount.

KICKER: 4 - KM654lcw, 2 - KM8lcw and CompR 12" in a 1.54 cu foot sealed box. 1 - KXM 400.4, 1 - KXM 400.2 and 1 - KX 800.1

Following pics are the amp rack and sub box install. Mids and tweets are on their way and I will post pics once they are installed.

Speaker and LED ring are on the way. Also going to line the grill with sub cloth to hide everything. Should look cool with the LED behind it.

Looks great so far. What did you use for the panel in front of your sub/enclosure? It looks clean and factory.

1/2" birch for the ring. Primer and spray on bed liner. 3/4" expanded metal for the grill. I sprayed it with bed liner as well. I am going to put subwoofer cloth behind it. That way you won't see the sub but will still see the red LED ring behind it.

I used 3/4" medex for the amp rack but 1/2" would have worked better. Primer and plastidip. If I did it again I would use bed liner. The plastidip has a nice finish but isn't nearly as tough as the spray on liner

Update:

Installed all the mids. KM8s were a pain in the azz to cut in but they are going to be worth it. I LOVE the look of these new KICKER speakers and the LEDs look ridiculous.

The Rev10s go in tomorrow night and I will finish the sub and WS420sq sometime this weekend. Can't wait to tune and turn these speakers loose.
