    Re: 1999 Chevrolet Blazer

    So, I determined that free-hand measuring this amp/battery rack is going to be impossible. Since I don't have the tools to make it here, I've decided to mock it up with cardboard. It's going to be a tiered design, batteries/fuses/all excess wiring on the bottom, and the amps on top enclosed in a hinged box, with fans on each side in a push-pull configuration and a removable top that's secured with magnets. The top will have plexi on it to show off the amps, and my DC 5.0k will be mounted upside-down (I made a plexi cover). Pretty sure I'll be putting some lights in there too. No one is going to want to build this when I'm done mocking up lol.

    Here is the space I have, with the seat removed:



    Here are my G31's:



    And here is where I stopped for today:



    Was pretty nice out, decided to go for a run.

    If anyone has any ideas, I'm very open to them.

    Here they are installed:

    Re: 1999 Chevrolet Blazer

    So, got my badass cardboard box pretty much done. Got tore up by about 3,465 mosquitoes. Or that's what I estimated. Pics:







    And here's how I am going to lay the amps out on top:



    I was going to do a top piece over the amps, but not sure now. Might just throw some fans underneath the amps instead.
    @double 07 do you do house calls? I might just send you this cardboard box lol.







    But seriously, I'm sending you this cardboard box

    Re: 1999 Chevrolet Blazer

    Dat wire





    KnuKonceptz Kolossus Fleks Kandy cable. 50ft of 1/0ga, 10ft of 4ga, and 16ft of 8ga, all OFC. 4ga for my Levi, 8ga from sub amp to box, 1/0 for everything else to include 2 positive runs front to rear. This is half of the wire I need, this is all my positive. Need an equal amount in black for negative. Will be getting Sky High Car Audio wire from Jim.

    Also determined I need to make the amp rack myself, so I'll be picking up a few hand saws this weekend. May end up making my box too depending on how the amp rack goes. Anyone try the Craftsman bolt-on kit (?Gonna try it out, gonna get the drill, router, jigsaw, and sander attachments. Going to get a seperate 20V trim saw that will cut 45's as well.

    Re: 1999 Chevrolet Blazer

    So, faced facts that I need to build the amp rack myself, and went shopping today:





    Cordless trim saw, Craftsman bolt-on cordless kit with driver, router, and jigsaw attachments, Ryobi roundover router bit set and small drilling set.

    Depending on how this amp rack goes, how accurate my cuts can be with only a circular saw, I may build my box as well instead of ordering one.

    Re: 1999 Chevrolet Blazer

    Got some work done on the amp rack/battery box:



    Both Lowe's and Home Depot didn't have full sheets of birch, which I find odd. They did have 2'x4' sheets of 3/4", which I used, and BARELY had enough with what I had leftover from the last box. Anyway, still need to measure and cut the two side pieces over the wheel well, because I changed the dimensions a little so the cardboard template won't work. Also need the $150 worth of fans I want to measure and do the cooling the way I want it.

    Thinking about staining the whole thing. But it's such a pain in the ***. Might just leave it bare wood. Anyone got any ideas?

    Shell is done.



    Not fond of this corner, but needed to be done to get over the wheel well



    Need clean up some of the cuts and edges. Need to add some fans in there somehow, not quite sure how yet. Also need to add supports in the bottom, because the floor isn't exactly even.

    Re: 1999 Chevrolet Blazer

    Just got this in today:



    Combination ammeter/voltage meter and 500A 75mV shunt. Should allow me to see both voltage and current draw from my amps. Hopefully I can wire it up correctly and not fry it. Got the manufacturer (Chinese) to provide me a translated wiring diagram, so I should be alright. Has anyone used something like this before?
