    Gotcha. What about new fabric and headliner twist pins to create a plush look? I know the twist pins will grab into the liner and won't need glue.

    I had never even heard of those! Do you think they wouldn't just vibrate loose? Also where can I find any that don't look either gay or old-lady-ish?

    They don't seem to come loose, even after years. Most look silly but not as silly as a headliner falling down.

    Not so sure about that. Definitely bears looking into though.

    Re: Bye bye back seats....







    Added some gorilla tape and gained a little, opened up the port a little and gained (only raised peak by 2hz sadly), sanded where I bondod the corners in the port and lost, did little something inside and gained some.

    I'd like to see 157 before I add more power but my best options are sort of off the table since they'll lose the functionality of the removable back and having all that space for potential cargo area and easy access.

    It's getting there. 156.5db is pretty loud. Any idea what your clamping for power?

    Impedance was 5 and change (from 1.4 DC) at peak at the C-pillar each amp delivers 50V-ish, so was roughly 500W per coil. I believe impedance is a little higher in the larger box just anecdotally since it was much harder to get the subs smelly.

    Speaking of 4000W. Here's the new amp somewhat installed.



    Sadly it's too long for the amp rack as it is so that'll need to be rebuilt and hopefully figure out a way to get some batteries in there. That said, I think we've got a big storm coming in Monday so I likely won't be able to pick up batteries, and I'm still waiting on cable and lugs. I'm running 3 4 gauge to each input on the amp right now from the old fuse blocks and single 1/0 grounds up to the battery bank. I also need to rewire the subs at some point getting some fat wire into the box then splitting to the 12 gauge closer to them.

    Sounds good and should keep me going for a little bit.

    Got some snow coming Monday woohoo buddy!
    Here are some pics of when I went over to help Jon rip up some port wall and rebuild a couple months ago.
    That new amp makes my NS1s look tiny!

    Yep, proper winter is here. I was planning to pick up batteries in NH on Monday but I don't know now and I definitely don't know if or when I'll have time to build a new amp rack and battery box to mount them. I don't think we have any more above freezing days on the horizon at this point.

    Thanks again for helping out do that surgery on the box and thanks for sharing the pictures.

    What amp is that?



    knowledge is powerful but imagination is exponentially powerful!

    experience is key! otherwise life is uneventful and pointless..

    keep in mind you have a great mind and remind yourself to be mindful.

    I have a garage ready for a jeep for a couple hours on a monday whenever, if you are interested. I split my day at work and could add another hour or two to that if needed.
    And you are welcome, it was fun crawling in that box and breathing in all that mdf dust before the respirator was used lol.
