i have a chance to pick up a JL 10 stealth box and Fix 86 for $75....
Deal sounds way to good to be true. Make sure to verify it is all in working condition prior to payment.

My buddy picked up the Fix 82 and the JL box with the 10” in it for me today for $75! More than likely I am not going to use the Fix but instead, will go with a 408.

my next project is to apply deadener to the rear wall and floor. The two big problems I am facing right now are how to mount the Morel tweets inside the A pillars and how to muffle sound coming into the cabin through the vents behind the seats. Since I deadened the doors, the noise coming in thru the back is insane! Hahaha, guess I got spoiled quick.

was thinking of making an elbow or piping to place over the vent to redirect noise while still allowing airflow.

I used 1.25" sonic barrier from parts express and built a foam box to place over the vents. I cut 1 inch strips and surrounded the vent on three sides and then cut a square piece to stick on top of the strips. This plus deadening the entire back wall with Noico and Noico closed cell foam. It did help.

Here's what I did. Rear of cab is now quieter than stock. Vents function like oem.

Second Skin Damplifier Pro followed by Second Skin Luxury Liner Pro CCF/MLV followed by CCF on the c-pillars. Talk to Hush about materials.

That’s a GREAT idea to do the inside of the C pillar covers! I am definitely doing that to mine. I may even carry that over to the B pillars if it’s feasible.

Thanks!

Amazing deal you got yourself. Sell the FiX and buy the 408. I'm fairly certain most would agree with this advise.

kind of the plan I am hatching in my small little mind based solely on what and how you and DH have spoken about them!

i might be picking up a JL 700/5 for $300-350 on Monday.

Sorry no pictures but I followed dhmcfadin's guidance above except I cut three 1" wide strips of sonic barrier and stuck it in the places i highlighted from dh's picture below. On the passenger side I had enough depth behind the seat to stick a rectangular piece of sonic barrier on top of that to entirely cover the vent so the vent works but there is an added baffle for the sound. On the other side I mounted my amps and only had the depth to stick 1/4" Noico CCF over the box again the vent still works. In the end it looks like dh's install with an extra foam baffle around the vents underneath the final CCF layer. I also stuffed some polyfill in the bottom space behind the C pillar but don't think this really did much.
