Acura Integra GSR
The Acura is a shop demo vehicle sponsored entirely by Kenwood. Every car audio product in the car is Excelon by Kenwood. Kenwood Excelon is Kenwood’s upper-end product division devoted to a higher quality of sound, reliability and performance. If you ever get a chance to sit in the car and listen to the stereo, please do because its one of the loudest stereos in a car that we have ever done. We decided to keep the stereo simple with it and not use any fiberglass or any time consuming materials. The system consists of: a KDC-X891 cd player, a pair of KFC-X1710 front separates, a pair of KFC-X1710P rear coax speakers, two KFC-XW1222DVC high output subwoofers, two KAC-X520 2-channel amplifiers (each amplifier is running each pair of speakers front/rear), and a KAC-X1R bass amplifier. With 3 amplifiers running there is a lot of output and current draw. The total combined output of all the amplifiers is approx. 2200watts real power / RMS / nominal output and there is over 200 amps of current draw. As you look through the pictures you will see that we have installed an additional battery and 2.0 farad capacitor to accommodate the current draw.Enjoy!
To install this massive stereo, we had to tear out the entire interior! As you can see in the pictures we started with almost bare metal and started applying dynamat to it. The entire cab of the car is dynamated from the rear hatch and tail light area all the way up to the front of the doors. Applying dynamat made a HUGE difference. We always recommend it to all people for all cars adding bass to their system.
As you can see, the dynamat is applied to the metal of the car so it can’t / won’t be seen after the interior is re-installed.
Since there is so much current draw in the car, we did 2 things to help with it. We installed a 200 amp circuit breaker between the 2 batteries (which you can see in the 1st picture here) under the hood next to the primary battery. We also added a 200 amp fuse in between the 2 batteries that is mounted in the rear of the vehicle next to the secondary battery. When doing an additional battery in a car you have to fuse / protect it under the hood and at the battery location in case of a short or an emergency. We also installed a Battery Isolator. We hooked it up so when the key was turned to the accessory position, the entire stereo would run off the secondary battery. When the key is turned to the ignition or on position, the power is switched to run both batteries. This way, when the car is started and running, the alternator charges both batteries simultaneously.
These set of pictures show the build process of the subwoofer box and set-up for the trunk area.
