350z Audio build iPad install
Saturday, March 03, 2012 11:38 AM
I just bought a 2005 350z in January and it was lacking a nice sounding stereo system. So I came up with a plan and just finished it yesterday.

Equipment:
iPad install for head unit
DD CS6.5 components for the front
DD 2508 (This 8" is huge...)
JBL GTO1201.1 rated at 1114 rms
Rockford Fosgate R300.4 rated at 300 rms
And upgraded the battery to a Optima Yellow top

For the finishes I used 3m scotchprint 1080 black carbon vinyl wrap. (This stuff looks awesome in person)

So on with the pictures... (Sorry about the cell phone pictures)

















The amp rack for the R300.4 I don't have any finished pictures of it at the moment. Its still currently unwrapped but will be wrapping it in trunk liner this week.

It is removable and basically it just controls all of my audio and send the signal to the amplifiers. There's a couple programs out there that is for the ipad/iphone that will monitor the car and add different types of gauges but for now it is just acting as a head unit.
Since it is removable I can also use my iPhone there if I do not want to bring the iPad.

Wow, that looks so awesome. I always loved iPad installs when done cleanly. That sub looks to be a beast too. Especially being an 8

I'm surprised how much output it has for it being an 8. It's nothing crazy but it has a lot of punch and will hit those low notes really well.

Finished the amp rack behind the driver seat.

good job, as someone else said the Ipad is a little big but it is functional and cleanly installed


I am looking for struts for my newly aquired Eibach pro-kit performance coils, If anybody has some?

Thanks I appreciate the feedback. I took a quick video of the setup. Since it was taken with my phone the sound quality isn't the best.
