    Still in the planning stages

    Please give me your feedback on this as this is what i plan to do. will this be ok to still have a loud system even though im using up some area in the trunk?









    I plan on having the sub fire backwards with the vent backwards.. this is a cavalier. The amp will be mounted in the floor so that i can slide the box forward to view the amp for shows and slide the box back for spl. Is this a good concept?

    IMO, no. If I understand you correctly, most of the time the sub box will sit ontop of the amp? That won't allow cooling, but will beat the hell out of the amp.

    I suggest you pic a permanent location for the sub and amp that will allow the amp to have proper cooling and not get beat by the sub box.
    Also make sure you leave your self a way to access that battery location in the future.

    the amp will have 2 80mm fans in the rack and the sub box will not be over it daily
    it will be over it only at competition when im on the mic

    Re: Still in the planning stages

    Should look pretty good. I suggest you glue and caulk that long seam between your side walls and the floor or they will rattle when the bass hits.

    I hope you left a way to acess that battery compartment.

    Re: Still in the planning stages

    the walls are meant to come out.. so they wont be glued to the bottom.. I will be carpeting them so that should stop the rattling.. if not, I'll line the bottom of the walls with rubber. I ABSOLUTELY hate rattling so there most likely wont be any from this build.
