Toyota Camry V70: Three-ruble note with rear and subwoofer
The owner is a middle-aged guy, a little younger than me.
Decent experience in the technical refinement of cars. But the sound never bothered.
Here I decided to try.
The terms of reference at the entrance are simple: “I want it to be quiet. And to listen to music with pleasure.”
Budget – what you need, but without extremism. Rear is a must.
Camry in this body has already done.
This one has a standard JBL audio system.
I sat down to listen to what they were offering. Nothing new – the usual bottom. A plastic jingling bottom that does not give the slightest chance to enjoy music in any form.
There was a period when I tried to choose diplomatic terms that would describe as clearly as possible the attitude of car manufacturers towards the owners of their product. But no amount of diplomacy saves when you’re sitting in a new mid-size sedan with a stock audio system with nameplates of one of the audio industry’s flagships and you hear this gloom.
Apparently, according to the logic of the manufacturer, the lot of auditory in modern cars is to suffer.
But this is lyrics. And nothing new, unfortunately.
While I was sitting and listening to the shtatka – in these three minutes it came to an understanding that the factory places for the speakers are quite even ok. Yes, it would be good to make podiums for tweeters that correct the direction of tweeter radiation, but this is not a must-have if the new ones can work high.
In the end, they used regular places to install the front and rear – did not regret a single gram.
Now, in order:
The first is a signal. Where do we get it from? The stump is clear, that from a regular mayfun, quite seriously integrated into the car in every sense – aesthetic and electrical.
The search for solutions for receiving a signal from a standard head unit ended with the Trioma TTL 3.0 interface, designed to receive a pure digital signal with volume control and service signals. We put instead of a regular amplifier under the driver’s seat.
Further, the signal through the optical cable enters Euphoria – which we mount right there under the driver’s seat.
We use all channels – I love it when the entire processing arsenal is involved:
– two channels – for BLAM RT20 tweeters
– two channels – for BLAM LFR50 mids
– two channels – for BLAM WS685 mids
– two channels – for BLAM 165EC rear coaxes .
We send the remaining pair of processor channels to the DA-500.1 ONE monoblock subwoofer serving the Best Balance C10 buba.
Actually, the whole system.
Power copper 4 Ga comes to the positive distributor under the driver’s seat, bifurcates into two “eights” for amplifiers. Body weight.
Main fuse – under the hood next to the battery.
Speaker wiring – plain copper AMP. Without any sophistry.
For mids and rear coaxes – 4mm2, for mids and tweeters – 1.5mm2.
Optics – plastic from the radio store. May the apologists of glass forgive me.
Why did you stick the tweeters into the regular blotches?
Because these RT20s perform quite well in terms of overall high-end reproduction, and more importantly in this case, they work especially clearly and transparently at the very top. And the small size allowed them to be adjusted as close as possible to the standard grid – thus, although it (the standard plastic grid) has a chance to affect the high-frequency range, it is so meager that I decided to ignore this effect, remembering the quite effective Euphoria processor.
After all, you need to understand – all processors allow you to see the change in the numbers of all sorts of delays, curve slopes and other equalizations on the screen. But only an efficient processor allows you to unambiguously hear changes in the sound of the tuned car, correlating with the change in numbers on the laptop monitor with software)
So, Euphoria has a very efficient processor.
Midrangers planned BLAM FR80 at first, but when I climbed under the regular grid, covering the regular places for midranges, I realized that the gain in the lower frequency of the speakers compared to the ideally sized LFR50 is not worth the effort of installing the FR80. Therefore, he agreed to a replacement without the slightest hesitation. BLAM LFR50 entered the regular places, as they were there.
These mid-pieces already sang on the table – no pitfalls – from 500 hertz even in the second order they sing naturally and beautifully.
Midbass – song. I planned to cover them up in Pyzha, but the hope did not come true – they did not want to work fully in closed boxes – it was too cramped for them there.
I couldn’t think of anything better than to leave them in anticipation of a decent install, in which a clear and natural midbass will be in demand. And here he is, right there.
In short, in this setup WS685 showed their best side.
How they can play the double bass string is a fairy tale!
There was also a little epic with the subwoofer – BLAM Super Sub10 was planned. For some reason, I had an assumption that it would be possible to implement the fazik with this body.
But when I saw the “ski hole” and measured its dimensions, I could not resist the temptation to implement, in my opinion, the most musical version of the subwoofer in this body – with the muzzle into this very “hole”. The diffuser almost completely corresponds to the hole in area, and do not care that it is square.
But direct bass – in the cabin. And it’s worth it.
In short, I changed this horse at the crossing, as they say.
We took a twenty-liter trapezoid under the top ten, removed five liters with foam plastic, and screwed it through a transitional structure that excludes the possibility of siphon siphon on the sides – it works exactly on the volume of the cabin. So that there are no encroachments to jet make noise and other dirty tricks.
The monoblock is screwed onto the subwoofer case – space car – you can forget about overheating.
The bass knob was put in a good place next to the USB connector.
If you don’t know, you’ll see, but it’s convenient to use.
Noise car thoroughly – the entire interior, trunk, arches outside – in general, to the fullest.
This could have ended, if not for the anecdotal situation that cost me two days of my life.
Now, when I write, it’s hard to contain laughter, but when you sat down to set up the system on decent hardware and you have “some kind of x @ yya” in the midrange / treble range, and you can’t understand with your mind how this is even possible – nothing is funny.
At first I thought: “Well, here we are, we got the first defective Euphoria.”
Agreed with the client on the transfer of the issuance of the car, ordered a replacement Euphoria from the supplier.
Supplier – Wind Audio – well done guys – promptly brought a replacement.
We put – the same garbage, just the other way around.
The mood starts to deteriorate.
It always spoils for me when you do the same as always, but the result does not correspond to the usual.
And, most importantly, the reason can not be understood.
Everything is connected as usual.
I’m getting nervous. With the hope of a miracle, I call the supplier and ask if there is another Euphoria – these two are defective … He is surprised, but pleases with the answer: “There is one more, the last one.”
Please bring it. They’re taking it.
While they are being transported, Andrei Vakhtin and “his Chinese assemblers and all this rigmarole with Chinese shit” will be bonfired in absentia.
The mood is below the plinth.
Guys start voicing their outrage about “Chinese crap” and “why do we have to change shitty equipment five times”?
They brought the third Euphoria. We put.
The same garbage – the left / right channels in the MF / HF frequencies differ in tone and phase even by ear!
While I’m sitting and freaking out, along the way I drive the idea of setting up a wheelbarrow with a joint out of my head – the client will like it anyway – no, I don’t need such holes in karma. You are proud that you do to people the same way you want them to do to you – do it! And it’s not good to squirm here that you can’t figure out why the car doesn’t sing.
It was the moment when I almost blundered, of course. Very sad feeling, I confess)))))
When I realized that I didn’t have enough mind and experience to understand the cause of the problem, I remembered my favorite “Miracles do not happen!”.
I took out a laptop with DATS, asked to uncommutate the midrange and high-frequency wiring for measurements.
Because there really are no miracles in electrical engineering!
We measure the right tweeter … sweep … resonance 125 hertz. B@ya. Can’t be. I measured it on the table – it should be 2.5 kHz.
Three-second freeze… Awareness… Protest… Acceptance… Catharsis!)
“Well, fuck off, dear Julio Iglesiasovich! (c)
This is an unforgettable experience, of course)))))
In short, as it usually happens, the human factor played a cruel joke. The man mixed up wires that were not signed for a separate reason and connected tweeters to the midrange channel, and mullions to the HF channel.
And since the LFR50s are quite confidently trying to sing at the very top, it turned out to be a situation where you hear just bad treble in the right channel, unlike the left one.
But the tweeters, cut from 500 to 5000 hertz, also tried to sing medium frequencies))))
In short, when I understood everything, I swore well, of course. Well, then they screwed up.
To clear his conscience, he called Vakhtin and apologized just in case for all the dregs that he thought, including aloud about his products, until he understood the reason for the jamb – he suddenly hiccuped)))))
No, he says, he didn’t hiccup)
To the supplier too I immediately gave feedback – Euphoria is still reliable sonorous pieces of iron, the end of the alarm)))))
Well, then, as usual, I twisted it a little.
HF from 5 kHz, mids – from 500 to 5000 hertz, mids – from 90 to 500 hertz, sub – from 25 to 80 hertz.
Everywhere the fourth orders of the name of Comrade Buterworth.
Coaxials nailed the level and launched from 80 hertz.
You can hear them on the back sofa. They don’t pull on themselves in front – they give a bit of a sense of volume.
Subwoofer – I liked it very much.
Bold and smart.
By the way, I first hooked it to 4 ohms – it has two coils of 2 ohms each.
I didn’t like the bass – tight and heavy – but you can immediately hear it – a decent head cannot walk so hard.
Re-switched to 1 ohm. Well, here’s another calico at all!
Movable, fat, filling the interior with excellent relief in time! Love!
I combed the unevenness caused by the influence of regular grids and all sorts of corners and nearby surfaces with an equalizer … Sings! Yes, how she sings! Straight balm pours on the soul))))
Then the client drove up to take the job.
Gregory Lemarchal included for him. I twisted the volume, I’m watching.
This is my favorite moment – to see the first reaction of the customer.
I look – I closed my eyes, frowned.
Great! Aiming hit in the bull’s-eye!)))))
Here we need to make a small digression.
The Gregory Lemarchal track is the eighth track on karennur’s “Aurora” record.
And all my adult life I thought that the vocals were female))))
And today, the devil of doubt still made me google the name Gregory Lemarchal – and I finally found out that this is a young guy with incredible talent and just towering manner of singing.
And he left us in 2007 from an incurable disease at the age of 23.
Well, that’s it. If the car can sing, even if crookedly, but emotionally, I roar on this track. Always)
If you don’t roar, then the car is shit and doesn’t sing))))) Here is such a litmus test.
Returning to the acceptance of the system by the client – I understood about the bullseye as soon as I saw a characteristic gesture – when they dab their eyes with a pinch of fingers))))
The car sings, therefore.
