    2002 Explorer

    This might not rate with the "wall", or "bass of doom" crowd, but...it serves my needs. And, it sounds pretty good for the budget. I'm merely posting this for the guys looking for ideas. So, here's a few pics...
    Adios third row seat... Hello Damplifier Pro!!



    And, Luxury Liner Pro...



    The Top 50% of income earners pay 96.54% of All Income Taxes. The Top 1% Pay More Than a Third:34.27%...so, the next time you hear about "tax cuts for the rich", remember...those are practically the only people paying taxes.

    Friggin awsome stuff! Just be sure to puzzle piece it together. You don't want any gaps. Tape the seams just as you would laying down padding for carpet. Any leaks allow noise to get through.

    Boston Acoustics Pro 60's speakers...

    You want to open up the grill, by drilling out the fake perforations. It was originally designed for a 5x7 plate speaker. So, I used a drill with a bit the same size as the holes, and went to town.

    Amp rack... This is another guys design, but I adapted it for my system. Hey... a good idea, is a good idea!
    Framing...

    Coolling fans, one on each corner.

    Amps installed... One note: The amp rack frame is secured by bolts that correspond to the factory bolt holes left after removal of the third row seat. You can just see the bolt location on the 2x4 at the far left of the pic.

    View of the front side.

    Man! Gotta watch not to put too many pics in one post! Anyway....
    Lid closed, subs installed.


    Brought the wires up through the amp rack, and lid.

    2-12" piano hinges hold the sub box in place, but allow it to fold forward for servicing.

    K, I acknowledge that the carpet doesn't exatly match, I bought what I could find, and put it together, I finally found the right stuff, so I will probably re-carpet over the winter.

    Re: 2002 Explorer

    The amps are Boston Acoustics GT series. Two GT-28's. One each feeding one JBL W12GTi series subs, 1 cft sealed @ 3ohm mono. 1200 Watts to each, but the left channel feeds the left side amp...the right side feeds the right side amp. I can select stereo, or mono from the HU. The GT-24 is running the left & right stereo channels. 225 W/side @ 3ohm stereo. The sub power is probably a bit too much. I have it dialed down just a bit, so I think that the GT-24 across the board would have worked as well.

    Crossover features are selected from the HU. 80 Hz crosover HP/LP. I tried it at 65 Hz, and it works just about as well.
