Ok, I am building a new system... Not too big but it is enough for me.

I am doing an 18" Q powered by a MTX TA 7801. The box for the Q will be ported and about 6.5^3.. Tuned to 32. I am doing some PG RSD 6,5 CS powered by a Hifonics Zeus 4406... I am making a amp rack for the amps.

Here is the progress I have made so far today.. not too bad:

BTW This is my first build... Here is the amp rack I just got finished with... I still have to carpet everything obviously.

I have never carpeted anything before so this will be a fun new thing to try :) we will see how it goes..

Here is the amp rack. The hifonics will go on top of it but I do not have it yet!

I was thinking about cutting out some letters or a word out of the extra wood I have and carpeting it but I am not too sure what I should put on the front ... I was thinking of putting Fi but then I thought it was kind of boring but I dont know!!

Any ideas?

Thanks!

It's only about 6.5 after displacement? FI recommends 6-10? I thought it was going to be too small.

Looks good, looks a lot better than mine. :)

Looks good, what color carpet ya goin with?

Americanstrat21
05-14-2008, 07:49 PM
Black.. The ports are red (Matching the car) ..

The seats are sort of black/red so I thought it would look good going black carpet with red ports..

and + the MTX amp.. should make for some decent visuals.

what do you all think?

Not too much progress.. will be carpeting monday b/c I am going to be having a really busy weekend... but I put the Box in the jimmy.. I need ideas to what I could do with my amp(s)..

I am going to have a MTX TA 7801 and a Hifonics zxi 4406 that I need to find places for.. I have hardly any room.. There is only 3 in from the box to the hatch so.. I have a couple inches on the right and no room at all on the left.. I want this to look nice so I am trying to think of a way to do it without just screwing the amps to the box.. but I will if I have too...

Bump for input on amp placement...

05-18-2008, 11:25 AM
You shouldn't need an amp...Your sub puts out 1400rms!!!:)

J/K what about along the side?

Americanstrat21
05-18-2008, 11:31 AM
^^ Ha.. shhhh

I think I might just have to mount it right to the side of the box because I have no room for an amp rack or anything... errg ..

audioarsonal
05-18-2008, 11:34 AM
That should be fine...I mount mine on the back just behind the seats.

Americanstrat21
05-18-2008, 11:37 AM
Think it will make the carpet look ****** after I mount the 2 amps on it?

05-18-2008, 11:37 AM
why are the ports red? and holy jesus big box, why 2 ports?

Americanstrat21
05-18-2008, 11:39 AM
^^ Just the color I chose.. There are red lines on the seats so it will match + the outside of car is redd.... Two ports just b/c that is how the plan was.. one for each side :/

jdawg
05-18-2008, 11:40 AM
coolz, im sure the port displacement takes alot of the box

audioarsonal

It shouldn't damage the carpet at all.Might be a little matted down but that can be fixed.The scew hole should just disappear.
What kinda material you using?Regular grey carpet..

Americanstrat21
05-18-2008, 11:45 AM
Black .... not too sure.. pretty flexible though.

05-18-2008, 11:49 AM
Should be fine.Its on the side so it won't get seen much anyway.They'll be looking at the sub!!

It is finally done!!! Everything is hooked up and I am definetely impressed with the results.. Very tight and good sounding bass that still gets very loud..
