Alright so finally yesterday I got my car back.

I must say, wow...I am very impressed at their work. Especially since I was thinking it was going to look a lot more vague. It reps not only Honda, but Si in general and JBL. Very cool.

Here...are the pics!












Random other shots with my wheels and license plate flip:





Thanks all for your assistance and time!
-Andre

(Edit: If you know anyone who needs the OEM speakers/sub and the dash piece...PM me. We can work out a deal. Everything still works simply plug and play with the replacements.)

-1 for teh cheapness jbl
-1 for you wheels
-for cheap radar detecor (installed badass radar or nothing IMO)

BIG +1 for the custom trunk. Even though I'm not really digging the the specific design, custom one-off setups make me happy whatever they are. I have always hated neons, but it kinda looks nice. Does it clash w/the orange lights in ur dash?

LMAO

Cheapness JBL?

Uh ok, price check 2x P1222, GTO1201.1II and GTO75.4 for yourself.

-1 For wheels? Why's that? Don't like the brand? Color ...everything?

So badass radar being...Escort Passport? ...

I mean I thank you for your opinion...but give me some sort of constructive criticism here. Not just random negative things.

There are no orange lights in the dash, they are red...and I don't have them on that bright.

trunk setup looks nice

inside, the 1 din looks kinda wierd / incomplete, but I guess there aren't really any solutions to that other than DVD / Navi

the cord for the radar looks really out of place, if you are willing to put a notch in one of your dash panels you could just run the cable up, through that little panel under your HU, around your HU, and then out the back right side of the massive dash panel that covers the speedometer, so that ugly cable is mostly hidden.

As far as the single DIN, yeah...it looks very clean though inside. I will probably get Navi here in the future. I am going to be driving across country in March or so anyways to a place I've never been to so that'll help.

The cord for the radar is right in the way (sorta), I was thinking of taking the Dash piece off and putting the cord down in between that and the car and doing like what you had said.

I sound deadened my license plate today, did a double layer. Before I just had the plate on with 2 top screws. LOL...yeah it rattled bad.

Haven't tested it with all 4 screws and a double layer of B-Quiet.

We'll see tomorrow.

Actually there is a decent amount of trunk space left. The shop told me to just put a blanket down or something if I am gonna load that back area up so that it won't screw up the vinyl. That's why we got that panel there so that we won't scratch up the glass and whatnot.

Thanks guys!

I don't understand... did you do this to go deaf or something?

Hell, the stock sound system is loud as hell as it is, and you get trunk space to boot...

Well either way I do have to admit it looks nice, just a little overkill lol.

Get an escort solo 2 radar detector. It uses batteries which last really long. It's only $300 too, so jump on it.

Personally, I'd rather have go fast parts over things that add extra weight and make a car slow but to each his own, happy listening. The install looks good. Oh and hardwire that radar detector and mount it above the rearveiw mirror, I absolutely hate seeing those ugly ass cords stretched across the dash.

Yeah it is a bit overkill lol but...I'm that goofy kid that "did that" haha...thanks for the comments guys.

As far as the radar goes, I definitely agree with the cord all slung over the place looks nasty. I just don't know how to fix it.

Installing it above the rear view mirror...is that a bit much? Like...doesn't it need to get a clear path out the back of the window too? And that high up?

I'd have to go out in my car and take a look but I think that's really high...but maybe it looks better that way.

Also hard-wire it? How...? Like...it's a cig radar, should I cut the cig thing off and then take those wires and put them in with a fuse or something? Maybe there is a DIY somewhere.

Thanks again guys!

The trunk install looks really nice, but like most people said the dash kit dosen't really do much for a single din radio. I've only done 2 decks in the nes Civics, and both cases customers went with Double Dins. The only thing in the trunk I'm not a huge fan of is the JBL on the sides of the Subs. They seem a little too close, but it still does look good.

As far as the radar...hardwiring it is simple. that spral cord is nothing but a pain to hide, so your going to have to cut most of it off. Inside will be 2 wires...To find polarity of the wires, the easiest way (if you don't have access to a DMM)is to disassemble the cig. plug and trace where the wires go. The center of the cig lighter is + and the 2 prongs on the side are -. Once you have the wires exposed and know what's + and -, extend them to your power source and ground and you should be set. Don't forget to fuse the power lead.

I saw a kit at the store for hardwireing it to the fuse box but making your own is pretty easy too.

You reallly need a body kit and some fancy taillights to complete your ride.



I will say the truck setup is nice, but its heavy as hell. Also, JBL? WTF and since when is JBL a good brand? Hell 3 years ago JBL was kinda like buying shit at walmart.

love the trunk setup but just wondering the point of buying the si model if you are going to weigh it down with 200-300 lbs of stereo shit

I agree. The setup looks nice, but I would have gone with a nicer sub than a high end entry level sub for that price (unless you got a deal on them) like Diamond Audio or Boston Acoustics.

You certainly get a A for effort though! Now, hardwire that Radar...

Not my thing, but the install looks clean and well done. You should lower the car bit IMO.

shitty pics! nice car, tho.

there are many things i dont like about it, but like people say, "to each their own."
...like the embossed lettering along the wall of the custom enlosure, but i like the civic si part.
all and all, good start. my advice is KEEP IT CLEAN and be tasteful.
go for quality, not quantity.


i miss having a system, last one i had was in my 00 si.
boston acoustics pro series and jl audio w3 powered by ppi amps in distribution by an 8v pre-out equipped eclipse. lol
the fact that i know i am not hearing everything from a song bugs me and i really enjoy music. plus i like feeling it too ;\)

what speakers are you running for up front? (your seperates)

I like the custom work done. Jbl isn't too bad a brand. They've done audio for a long long time. Don't know why people hate on it but to each his own. My license plate rattles like hell to. The rear deck where the speakers are rattles like crazy too. I need some dynamat. But over all I like it except all the neons.

No. It isn't.

I had a custom box in my civic that hit 145db, and it took up most of the trunk. Also replaced front and rear speakers with their own ampifiers. Sounded nice, but it was still a civic.

Little too much neon and crap for my taste. Is it me, or is that wheel bent?

Tastefully done, but not my cup of tea. Also, as stated above, change out the single din setup with at least a navi screen or a head unit that flips open so it covers up the empty space. The only constructive feedback is your sound system is done, so work on performance mods now...

i'm not into audio shit but your trunk came out pretty nice. I've read what it takes to construct a trunk like that and it looks like you had some quality work done.
