the first thing to do was the sound isolation of the doors.the fatmat was calculated to be just enough for the job,but fortunately it was more than enough....

All four doors were stripped down,and dressed with fatmat on a double layer,dynamat around the speakers and dynaxorb just behind the speakers magnet.

PROBLEMS....
during the installation we faced minor problems.
1.placing the new speakers was impossible,so we had to trim a little all 4 doors at that spot.
2.spacers were used for the front only,in order to have enough clearance from the windows
3.dynaxorb was not placed:( in the rear windows due to a door's nerve....
4.I had to put back the original speaker fascia (incorporated on the panel) as it is too risky to try and cut it off and be replaced by the new one....

I must say that the doors now sound much different!
they have a much more heavy echo when you are knocking them on the out side and when closing...
It's like ringing a hotel's front desk ring bell (stock car) and the local church's bell !!! (my car).....
plus there is no rattle....

Very nice work s33s! Eventually the ice installation except from being a gift to our ears and to our car it also works as a solution to all those frustrating rattles! So, pump up the volume my friend.....

on the second day we moved back and stripped down the tail gate in order to fit the rear view camera.

here's the 5th door before and after....

At the same time another Honda fan who works in the shop,jumped on the amps....
Along with the capacitor,the fuse block and a grounding unit, were mounted on a wooden board 1m x 0.5m and then mounted on the back of the rear seats....
no more 60/40 for me....:p

here is my shining sound armor....
