In a previous thread I started a write-up of my DIY Custom speaker Panels that I was designing to bring better sound to my R170 SLK.(You can see that thread here).
During the course of that project everything morphed into a bigger redo of the entire audio system in my SLK and so as to offer some insight, as well as document my own processes for others to hopefully learn, or garner their own creative solutions I am starting this new thread.
Being one that tends to be rather long-winded, I will forgo the history lesson and not bore you all with stories of my youth and the various other builds I have done over the years. Bottom-line, I am a reformed Car Audio fanatic who despite growing up and moving beyond my days in the mobile electronics industry; I still enjoy tinkering in the garage every now and again and felt my little roadster was overdue for an upgrade. This is that story.
For the sake of brevity I will try and break things up into a useable and useful format. This thread with serve as the introduction to the project and will be the place I post progress and pictures of things as I go. It will also serve as a jumping off point to individual DIY threads for specific aspects of the project should someone be more interested in a specific element or aspect of things.
While this list may grow, I will have four main DIY’s affiliated with the project:
