    sidetracking here....

     

    but try to pull the speakers further from the wall.

    B&Ws need a lot of room to sound their best....


    Re: Look what the postman brought me today...

    Thanks for the tip. I have been moving them around and also tried different angles, but to be honest I did not find any noticeable difference so I went for esthetically best looking setup Smiley

    Maybe I will give it another try now when you mention it.

    Re: Look what the postman brought me today...

    Just try a little bit how the speakers sound best. But have in mind that positioning the speakers too far off the wall could lead into eliminating of some bass frequencies. Bass is emitted spherically. That means that only a part of it reaches your ear directly, the other part goes the opposite  way and reaches the rear wall first, will be thrown back from it and therefore will actually reach your ear later. It doesn't matter if the bass chassis is at the front, the side or the rear, problem will always be the same. This results in a phase shift, which is likely to eliminate one another in the frequency range around 100 to 150Hz.

    Hope I could make myself clear, better back to topic now. Smiley

    Nice parts! Looking forward to read how they change the car!

    Heh, I think you've taken the prize for "Least On-Topic Content" with this one, Bluelines ;-)

    I'll attempt to fax the Scuderia forms when I'm back in office - although, as you know, I am not good with technical stuff.

    Is there a topic on your Boxster? I love the modifications you've done to it....

    Re: Look what the postman brought me today...

    Thanks Porker. I can take a few photos, create a topic and give an overview of the modifications I have done.

    Re: Look what the postman brought me today...

    Got the car back yesterday evening and I can only say one thing... WOW!  The new coil-over suspension and anti-roll bars have been installed with an aggressive setup for track use.

    I never imagined this car could handle that good. A perfect balance and no... let me repeat that... no body roll whatsoever. It is like the car is on rails through the curves. Hard on the throttle or hard on the brakes, but no tendency to understeer or oversteer.

    The ride is firm and hard, but not harsh. Potholes and bad road surface is surprisingly well filtered away (far better than with the stock suspension and sport springs). The ride height is -35mm in the front and -30mm in the rear compared to stock.

    I can do nothing else than to highly recommend this modification for anyone with a Boxster. You thought it was well balanced before? Well, try this!

    I guess a large contribution to the excellent handling is that I did not go to an official Porsche garage for the installation, but to a well-known Swiss Porsche specialist (they mainly focus on GT3 Cup car suspension and engine work). A big thank you to them 

    That was all. Off for another drive now

    Re: Look what the postman brought me today...

    Here we go. Not the best photo, but you get the picture Smiley The car has 15mm spacers in front and 23mm spacers in the rear. I have a few more mods coming in next week and then I will take better photos and write a few lines about all the mods done to the car.
