right now i am just stacking up everything then i will do the install....this will be a slow process....

this is what i have so far....

Ia 40.1 amplifier
50ft Gray Stinger HPM wire
50 1/0 ring terminals
3 1/0 fuse holders with 250 amp fuses
2 pair of Stinger rca's
1 D34/78 yellow top optima (engine compartment)
2 D31T yellow top optimas with bud bars (in trunk)
New battery terminals
15ft 8ga wire (for subs)

Still need to buy :
Subwoofers
Get box built
250 amp Alternator

i built the battery box yesterday....you can see it in the pictures....
also i cut a piece of wood to be the plat form of the amp and the battery box.....i am still thinking if i want to do something crazy for the amp ...or just mount it to the piece of wood.....but when i start adding stuff to the car i will post up the progress.....also for right now...i am leaving the mids setup i already have ....maybe later down the road i might up grade it...but it is loud enough for me....also i am leaveing head unit for the time being...will upgrade ....after i buy subs,box,and alternator

what i have for the mids setup is .....
1 6 inch earthquake in each front door......4 8in earthquakes in back deck with port hole....on a 1500watt 2 channel...audiofonice amp pushing them....jensen double din in-dash tv...also have a 15 inch flip down tv... in middle of headliner....

2 18s would be a hard squeeze in there. Where did you get those pods for the door speakers? How did you get a double din in the dash? When I tried one in there it looked like it was hitting the air vents.

I own a grand marquis, and I honestly don't think you have the room for 2 18s. I don't know if Rab has done it, but it would basically leave you 0 room, and very litte airspace for the subs.

Edit: I guess he did have some in a grand marquis it looks like. 4 cubes per sub is pretty low, but doable for a fart box/spl setup.

that is pretty tru...the fi's require 5-10 c.f. on the 18's btls... i have no idea what the re's require...but **** idk....i will have to talk to one of buddy to se what he thinks i should go with...he will be the one building the box and tuneing the amp...

here is a couple picture....i found out if you measure from lip part where it has the plat form up top measure from the end of that back towards the back seats 10 1/2 inches you can screw anything down...i gave it a little more...11inches...

Right now I have my batteries on each side of my box I think I may move my mid amp and put my batteries beside my bass amp like you have when I get time. Looking good though man keep at it. :) Looks like the battery terminals are a little close to your rear deck, may be a chance of short circuit if you hit a hard bump, might just be like that in the pic though.

Noticed you used to have a flip screen in there. Was it able to come all the way out or did the dash get it in the way because of how it sticks out a little? Just wondering because I always wanted a flip out but didn't know if it would look good.

Nice man, like that floating IA.......only one problem, if you go with the 4th order bandpass, the amp rack is going to have to go, that area is going to be needed for your port. Trust me, I know lol.

He got a box design PWKdesigns, didnt work out like he hoped,...was a single reflex design, looked like a regular ported box in my opinion...

I would suggest for a pair of BTL 15s about 7.5 to 8ft3 net tuned to 33hz, should be exactly what your looking for.

I like the way you've got the amp mounted. Do you have any problems with too much heat in your trunk during the summer times? Here in Texas I can't keep my amp in the trunk with the ridiculous heat. I could only ever get about 2-3 minutes of playtime so I had to move the amp into the cabin to get some A/C.

I'm curious as to how the sound reaches the cabin. I also question the amplifier mounting position. Why not lay it flat or bring it up flush with the paneling? I just personally dont like the visual appeal of the angle. Other than that everything looks great!

well..right where the fuse holder is there is a a port in the back deck for the cabin...and i will be redoing the back deck to postion the speakers in a different way and make a bigger port back there....and the reason why i mounted the amp that was is cause from the side i will be able to adjust the controls on the amp easy!!! and if i layed the amp down flat it would be very tight and it would hang off the bottom board... and i do not want it flush i like the way it is now...i will be adding some leds soon to light the amp up...thanks

oh yeah and the other reason is because it is different...

If its a big 2 channel, id just run them in parallel, (3) speakers per channel, + to + and - to -, should give you a final load of around 2.66 ohms, which should be fine depending on the specs of that amp.

I see what happen, the specs you posted had it as a 4 channel amp, but said it was 600w x 1 bridged, thats what threw me off, just found the specs myself,

Audiofonics.com (http://www.audiofonics.com/ASP/Default.asp?idCategory=89)

You have the ADF 243 correct? Not sure how close those amps do to rated power, but should be about 200w to each speaker roughly.

Naw, if you include the horn with one of the sides, its going to see 2ohm instead of 2.66ohm...me personally, if I was going that route, id buy a small 2 channel amp just for the horn, or horns. Doesnt have to be big, (25x2 or 50x2 should be fine) since most horns are pretty efficient anyway.

Trying to make quite a bit of noise I see, lol.

Trust me, it will be fine, as long as the amp is rated at 2 ohm stereo, which im pretty sure it is. Your good to go.

Now, if those were 4 ohm speakers, you might have a problem as the final ohm load would be 1.33, which would be too low for your amp.

Every setup ive done in my CV has been subs and port towards the rear. Ive tried fliping the boxes so the subs and port fire up, and notice a gain in output, but seems to lose some of the boost I was getting from the low end.

Honestly, considering what you are trying to do, I think sub and port back would be best. Sub up and port back would also be a good idea, but ive never tried that combo in my car.

As long as your electrical system is pretty strong and its clean power, you should be fine. I saw a guy run a pair of XL 15s off a Sundown 3500 on each, and they handled it fine. Ive seen installs with 3000d going to a single sub.

I think either way will be fine, I know the BTLs will be happy, my friend had a similar setup in his Crown Vic.

Whats the specs and outside measurements of that box? And it looks good, Mobeious has the right idea, firing sub and port up and keeping the height low. Very nice.

Every setup ive done in my CV has been subs and port towards the rear. Ive tried fliping the boxes so the subs and port fire up, and notice a gain in output, but seems to lose some of the boost I was getting from the low end.

Honestly, considering what you are trying to do, I think sub and port back would be best. Sub up and port back would also be a good idea, but ive never tried that combo in my car.

I have subs up port back and mine sounds great still hits lowwwww

i found the problem with flip outs is that you have to put that spacer in because when it flips open it isnt perfectly vertical, almost tilted forward a few degrees due to the shape of the dash. i personally didnt mind it but got tired of people asking..."is it supposed to be like that"

well...come to findout after i tryed to install this unit rewlized it didnt fit right....it was kinda weird to me so i decided to give Mechman call to find out what was going.....and he told me the top brackets do not line up on this type of car ...but my EA 250 amp alt did????....... but he said just use to bottom 2 bolts to bolt it up and it will hold it...i said are you sure he said yes sir it will hold it so i tryed it and it works.....

but this kinda seems like my last big alternator....am i suppose to see a big difference between my factory alt and upgrade alt?? b/c when my factory alt i was doing the same volts as i am not with this upgraded alt......i really do not like that i paid $400 for another alt that does the same **** thang as my factory one....reading 14.2 hot.....IDK about cold yeah ....my car was already hot when i installed it.... but i guess the upgraded one is suppose to be able to take a heavy load and keep up and factory aqlt wont correct?

Might still be able to fit, I got a Double Din in my 04 Crown Vic and the only mod I had to make was to dremel the stock radio mounting tabs off. After that, space is tight behind it, but it just slides right in, my JVC fit fine.

yes sir it does have a little black case on the back of the factory alt....and the top holes dont line up with the bracket... so just the bottom 2 bolts are holding it in place...???????

Mechman said it is for my car just this style alt it not made to line up with the top bracket.....i also sent him an e-mail asking him about the volts....at this point i am not happy with it...

mobeious
02-17-2010, 10:48 PM
the back case is a different type of case then the standard alt for the 4.6l it has a different regulator mechman should have known this .. thats why the bolts dont line up.. cause its a diffrent alt

The 03+ panthers have a different heating duct which allows a double din to fit better, i am going to change to the newer duct as soon as I find a 03+ at the junkyard again.

I can fit 41" wide, 24" high, 22-23" deep. My current box is a little smaller than that but I'm pretty sure those measurements wouldn't be a problem.

Check your RCA wires, I had knukonceptz which worked fine but then one day I had a ton of noise. I first tried ground the RCAs on the HU like alot of Pioneer owners do (even though I have Alpine) which didnt help. Then I tested it by running a new set of Stingers outside the car which fixed it so I replaced em and all is good now.

Thankfully that **** buzzing/alt noise was driving me nuts.
