Going to be doing a bit of upgrades to the truck which include...

New JVC KW-NT700J Navi unit

http://resources.jvc.com/Images/02/90/29086.PNG

1 15" ZCON (on 4kw RMS)
1 15" Custom Enclosure built by Ricki30 from Alerion Enclosures, Tucson AZ
Completely custom fabbed steel false floor skeleton for the back end.

I plan on mounting all my amps under the false floor, leaving myself a blank slate above it to install various boxes for testing etc...

I will still be using my MTX TE4000Ds & TE1004s http://www.soundsolutionsaudio.com/forum//public/style_emoticons/default/woot.gif

Ok, here is what we are working with...

My current set up

My goal is to have a awesome demo vehicle and reclaim half of my truck as I have a major need for it with my new family.

All the amps are going to be mounted below the floor (instead of on top of the floor), and the enclosure will take up the right/left side of the truck, leaving half of the trunk space for strollers or groceries :)



Nice equipment to start off with. No more jet pack. :P


I have really enjoyed having the XCON in a sealed box, as you know Stephan, that is a departure from the norm. for me.

Here is a mock up of the measurements I am working with. Dylan is going to design me a killer enclosure from this point.

Looks like it'll get really loud. And knowing the zcons, sound really clean!

This truck has taken so much abuse over the recent years from the many different installs that have hammered it.

Ok, here is an update on the enclosures...

Dylan got the designs over to me. I decided to to a single sub set up for daily and a dual sub set up for shows...

The dual sub set up with have both of my MTX TE4KDs on them. So 8k RMS for the pair, and when I am running a single sub, I will knock that down to one amp @ 4k RMS.

Here are the designs.... (I have already started building http://www.soundsolutionsaudio.com/forum//public/style_emoticons/default/smile.png )

on a side note, these enclosures are a bit on the small side. With the single enclosure, I am looking to reclaim half of my truck space for "family room" when we do the groceries or stroller etc...

At the end of the 36 hour welding spree, I had forgotten to bring my jig saw for the hole in the floor, so I used a circular saw a free handed the router, thats why the board floor looks like hell.

I plan on reduing the floor board along with some plexi/lexan and some carpet, stay tuned for that.
