View Full Version : 2006 Dodge Magnum SRT8 Kicker Fiberglass Box (OLD)

Vehicle:
2006 Dodge Magnum SRT8

Components:
Factory Kicker System w/Subwoofer
Addition of Kicker L5 (later upgraded to L7) Addition of Kicker ZX750.1 Addition of Stinger Capacitor (was pointless, was told to add for noise suppression)

This build happened a few years ago, I have long since sold the car (I still miss it).

The idea was to maintain the factory system for the look and to be "stealth". There were revisions to the rear tray (new, with grill/mesh/carpet), addition of a cooling fan, and upgrade of the subwoofer I hadn't taken pictures of. THene there were the exterior items, I did replace the Asanti 22" wheels with 22" Viper replica wheels, and I really like the look of them - I can't find pics of them on. I still have the 3 piece Asanti's that I hope to use on another build......

The reason for this being added now to this forum was to offer insight into a stealth box build in a Dodge Magnum, and was previously documented on Fibreglass Forums. Some of you may not know, but SRT8 vehicles do not come with a spare; this is a perfect location for a subwoofer. The other benefit is the battery is right next to the spare tire well - simple power/ground access!

The box was loud, sealed, tight, and did everything it was supposed to - AGAIN I know Kicker is not everyone's preference, though telling me how wrong I was for the selection of these components is pointless - I no longer have the vehicle, and frankly I don't care.

The materials utilized in this build - Fiberglass, MDF, Foam, PL900, and various other items you would use in a box build.

Please take a look at the pictures, glad to assist in Magnum build questions if anyone needs information.

I did find a finished pic!!!!! Completely stealth, there was an MDF frame with inset perforated steel, and carpet overlay.

Yeah, I guess. Though I really wanted to go stealth, and still have it look like a pro-install shop did it.

Much of the other builds I have done were custom exterior or performance mods, they really don't fit with the Car Audio Forum or even this genre.

Maybe I'll add some past vehicles and projects into my profile gallery..........

Nice install. Not bashing and I know you don't care, not a huge fan of the components used but I can appreciate clean work.

Thanks!!!

One day...... It's coming....... SUPER high end build (no Kicker!) - might be next year - in the process of a pro-touring musclecar.

It sounded good. The box was sealed, and was fed into the low level inputs from the factory sub leads. I did upgrade to an L7 and it made a small difference, though not as much as I had anticipated with the price difference here.

It's unfortunate that I traded it in on my Escalade, so I no longer have the Magnum SRT8.
