Alright heres my plans.. 2 12" fi btl's in facing into the trunk of my mustang where the back seat is. Then runnning 3 rockford fosgate amps stacked where the bottom part of the seat is.

Looking for people willing to help me design and get ideas.

I might have to cut out the rear deck and cross brace to get everything to work.. Otherwise I'll have to fit 10's...

Please follow the pictures.

Looking for a little help, on what can be cut to fit more space.

Or if I cut stuff out how will I brace it?

thanks,kevin

i dont get why you cant just make a normal box fit to your trunk and the flush mount all 3 amps in front of the box?

At least its a ford your tearing apart.
I say box in the trunk, port it, false floor, acrylic, neons, and midgets. Should wang.

you should see my van. lol im driving around with it all torn apart and panels missin. the floor for the second row is missing, so I can get into the stow n go more easily. all of the trim panels along the floor are gone, the bottom pocket is sittin next to my chair awaiting EQ installation.... the a-pillars are out, and for a while, I was drivin around without the dash piece in.


some reassembly required. :D

is it brand new ?? haha

10-21-2006, 09:28 PM
as for the box, and getting 12's in. IT IS POSSIBLE. the little lip on the opening, u have to cut off, and bend back into the trunk. angled baffle of course. im talking about the lip right below the seat hooks.


i have the same car (v6 if yours is gt) same color.

hey thanks for all the responses.

I will be deadening it all in about 2 monthes when i can start the project. It only took about 20-30 minutes for me to strip it down like that in the back lol.

i had plans on false floor with acrylic to see the 2 kinetik hc2400's and then 4 runs of 1/0.

I was wondering how big I should make the box for the btl's. I found about a 4.5cu ft displacement after adding in wood size and without subs having them inverted. But without port added in. How much space should i try to get for?

thanks

Even if it had a smaller opening, or is just not very deep at all, my car is alot like that, except the trunk lid's arms go into the trunk, instead of those actuators that don't get in the way...then there's the bars that help pop the trunk open and keep it open instead of something easy.

Now I have to either cut holes and seal them for the lid, or make the box smaller to clear them.

x2 fiberglass the back wall(wear backseat would be) building the box into the trunk then mount the amps in a false floor where the rear seat would be. that would bring **** back!

Okay i can do that, I had only thought of facing into the trunk because of limited space.

Yes its a v6, I'll show an outside picture

I had plans on running the 4 runs of 1/0 through the center console and down under the carpet, thats the easy part.

4.5 cubes was basically building the box inside the car though.

Which way should the port be faced? into the car between the subs.
up through the rear deck? Or back into the trunk ( if into the trunk remember it will be mostly sealed off from teh inside. I am not sure if there will be space for it to enter where teh rear speakers are

And how many cu ft should i aim for.

And it took about 1 and a half hours to take everything apart take pictures, stare at it and put it back together. Ford's half *** design actually dissambles quickly and assembles well..

10-21-2006, 10:56 PM
you planning to running 10,000-20,000 watts? That's about what the runs of wire will carry at 14.4 volts...powa!

saywhat?
10-21-2006, 10:59 PM
I hate my car. (05 v6) but thats besides the point.

you can get 7 cubes in the trunk FYI.

uhm, 2 runs of 1/0 for positive and 2 for negative. Running close to about 9000watts peak.

Excessive amperage 300amp alt
3 kinetic hc2400's
100 ft 1/0 is all on the list to come first after a large secondskin order.

which way should i face the port?

where ever you can fit it. =p

9000 peak? Whats the real RMS rating?...so you're running like 5k rms watts I guess. Any reason for running negative wire to the trunk, not a good ground back there?

One of those subs will eat that 5k watts and spit it at you =p. I hope you got batteries =p.

lrgnation

two rockford fosgate t30001bd's should put out close to 4k each. so thats 8000watts plus a good 1000watts or so for front channel and rear fill. thats my 9000 watts rms actually.

But a kinetic 2400 under the hood and 2 in the back. I might be running 3 in the back depends on what i can afford at the time.

Sounds good, definitly pushing the wiring a bit, be sure to calc. the max power for those wires and fuse them accordingly so that you don't lose your car in the future!

This i know, i havent exactly calculated it out yet. I have to recalculate how much power im running through the wire again. I stepped up from where i was gonna be at before. and i might be even be thinking about running the t4001bd's and thats gonna put me at about 10,000 watts. honestly i need two 300amp alts but I dont have that much room for 2..

You don't really need that many alts, It could help, but as long as you have the have enough batteries and you play your stereo with your car running, and you don't constantly play your music way loud where ever you go, you probably will get away with just one 300 amp alt.

lrgnation
10-22-2006, 01:36 AM
good point. And i figure I may be needing atleast 3 runs of pos and 3 runs of neg.

Rawr-DQ
10-22-2006, 01:39 AM
To be on the safe side, yes...but you can try it, and watch the wires to see if they're getting hott, and if there is a big voltage drop from the battery to the amp...if you do 3 runs, you'll have less resistance and won't lose as much power as well, that'll help keep it effiecent...you can't go wrong with 3 runs :)

lrgnation
10-22-2006, 01:45 AM
the batteries will be real about... 5-8 feet of wire away from the rear batteries, depending on where I put them. I have the spare tire area i was thinking of using to put a row of 3 in there, depends on how big they are when i get them. I'll have to start mocking up my amps and batts with cardboard ...

red exterior? because entirely black inside.....

I would have bought a black one.. but... its too hard to keep clean where i live, I drive to school i come home and it needs a full wash again. theirs 2 rock corys within 3 miles.

It is not that I am a slacker.. its just I have been busy with school and sports and unable to work. I start working again begining of november after I go to the sema show. Long...lonng... project will probably end at june-july... My graduation money might be finishing off the project haha.

I have been reading and researching on forums and magazines for about 2 years and im finally going to build something loud..

had 3 jl w3 10's in a 6cu ft ported box with a 500/1 to it and i thought it wanged...
boy can i not wait lol...

and this is what I did to it... ripped it apart. Replaced the whole entiior with black carpet, black suede on all door panels and head liner. and left the read seats and did black suede on the walls as well. Sadly I can not find the finished pictures they were lost on my other pc.

I might be putting 3 in the back spare tire area or building them up a little out of the spare tire area for a false floor, and 1 under the hood. If i cant fit a hc2400 under the hood i'll step down a little smaller.


what size did u use to get the backseat out? 13mm (1/2 inch?)

13mm everything is f'n metric now. I took my rear seat belts out before I put the panels back in there. What a pain in the *** that was...

Im saving up, I wont be able to afford the equipment for a while.

I start applying deadner next month.

And then after that around xmas time I will be ordering the ea alternator and all the 1/0, speaker wire, and fuses and holders.

Sorry it is going take a long time... longest log ever guys..
