Entry level - Max 3000€ - Newbie Questions

Postby JohnEdwards » Mon 15. May 2017, 11:03

Hello all,

Im planning to upgrade my audio system in my car.

Idea was that I could also comply with the EMMA standards as feed back from a entry level competition would be beneficial

Im aiming for the max 3000€ level

At the moment Im planning to use my DSP with highlevel input. (Oem audiounit with optics)

- How do you calculate the OEM amplifiers? What value should they have?
- I have in rear place for 6x9 and 4" speakers. Can I use the 6x9 speaker place for 6.5 subwoofers?
- Can these subwoofers be boxed or should they be as free air (as oem speakers ar now)
- Is it allowed to hide speakers e.g subwofers underseat or dash and still be oem compatible?
- Is it allowed to modify e.g rear deck upholstery so they align with the speaker locations? (at the moment the 6x9 speakers will be under the rear deck upholstery and only 50% will be visible)
- Is it allowed to modify the speaker installation hole? E.g fit a 8 inch subwoofer in 6x9 hole
- Is it allowed to use wood rings to modify a 4 inch hole with a 6.5 subwoofer box?
- What about sound isolation? Is it calculated in the 3000€ budget or not?
- If the rule for fuse is 250A for 50mm2 cable is mandatory or can it be lower fuse e.g 200A

Thanks,

JohnEdwards

IF my car has the following because of the Most optics to work and the car to start (read the last part of the rule book)

OEM CD Tuner
€ 200
OEM Audio Video unit € 500

OEM amplifier € 500 x 2

OEM processing units € 300

I will need to add 2000€ top of my initial EMMA values?

Then I can forget about Entry max 3000€

:shock:

... if everything is needed to play the CD all components have to be added to the total list.

doesn't matter

no

can't confirm. basically you are not allowed to change the surface.

as long as there was a speaker installed and the surface stays OEM, OK.

yes.
JohnEdwards wrote:- What about sound isolation? Is it calculated in the 3000€ budget or not?

no. only components

the fuse rate table is a maximum rate. You can use a lower fuse also.
