View Full Version : HHR upgrades
I am building an amp rack for my DC Audio 7.5K amp in the back of my HHR. I need a place to post my pics for safe keeping if nothing else :-) My system consists of: (3) level 6 18" DC Audio subs powered off a DC Audio 7.5K. Mids are Fosgate pro 6.5" (3 per door), and highs are Tang Band extended range drivers (7 per A-pillar, crossed over at 1KHz HP).
The new amp rack is going to be functional in the up and down position, with all sides being show quality for display in both positions. I have about 20 hours of work on it so far and should log another 20 hours or so before it is done.

Here is a video of my HHR giving a demo. The intro hits around 14 Hz, and the rest of the song hits in the low 20s... Good times :-)
Here is a picture of the face of the enclosure with the original subs. I started with 3 LMS Ultra 18"s, but my Sundown amps shorted and caused them to bottom out hard. So I decided to try out the level 6 subs... I loved the Ultras and their amazingly smooth sound...
Still have to finish beauty panels on top and get fan baffle in the front (top) finished. It is functional for Autorama though, so I am happy about that...

Man, look's nice. Them fans will def move some CFM. :toast:
Thanks :-) I couldn't sleep today so I was up at 11:30 (night shift ends at 5:30am). I got 5 hours of work done today before work, and got most of the amp rack looking better...
Still incomplete but better than yesterday...

Thanks :-) Autorama was a blast. Demoed down to 11Hz many times over the weekend. Now to plan the upgrades...
