    big system, little truck

    so I just joined this site today and I like it so far. seems fairly laid back. I just got my truck about 3 days ago, and I'm already doing things to it (shaving, etc.). I'm going to start concentrating on getting my system in it that I had in my Acura. it's 3 JL 10W6s and a 1200 watt amp. it's going in a '95 standard cab Ranger. I'm thinking one behind each seat and one in a custom center console that attaches to the box behind the seats, then the amp would be mounted below the sub in the middle..I'd really have to draw it all up on Paint or something but have no idea how to do so..can somebody help me? all help/ideas/suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

    thanks in advance

    Justin

    help drawing it?

    use Sketch Up.

    and if I were you, unless this is gonna be a show truck, don't take out your center seat for a console. you'll regret it, i did and switched back

    2 10"s in a reg cab will hit plenty hard (it's what I have)

    do you know about how many dB you're hitting? I hit 145 in the Integra with crappy highs/mids and whatnot

    Re: big system, little truck

    You could either sketch one yourself on paint or w/e thats reasonable and post it or just ask someone to draw on for you for a few paypal bux! They will be able to draw you a sketch and tell you how big itll be and how they will be tuned and whatnot! i would do 1 behind each seat and a custom fiberglass on in the center OR 1 behind in each seat and sell the 3rd for some cash for any other parts another Alt. or just something else! My 2 cents

    Re: big system, little truck

    I'd rather stick with all 3. I love the sound they produce. they hit sooooo hard. when they were in my Acura, I could drive by peoples' house and shake the plates in their kitchen. I **** you not, my buddy called me one night after I had driven by his house and was like "dude you just shook the plates in my kitchen when you drove by" and like the next day I drove by another guy's house and when I saw him later he said his kitchen floor was shaking when I drove by. they could be heard half a mile away!

    they will sound louder in a reg cab truck than in an acura

    i recommend not doing it

    but if you want, go ahead

    Re: big system, little truck

    why would I not like taking the center seat out? nobody ever rides there and I never use it for anything else..I want bucket seats and I want to wrap my box in either leather or something soft and cushiony and whatnot..

    No they won't
    I took my system out of my truck and put it in my RSX and it sounds a lot louder. Its the cabin gain.


    x2 on the blow through if u really want to go this route on a ranger.

    Re: big system, little truck

    I thought about a blow through, but I'm body dropping my truck soon so that would possibly (very likely) pose a problem..

    I've gotten a lot of mixed opinions on a blow through from many people, so it's hard to decide..

    thanks a lot guys for all the thoughts though, keep 'em coming!

    Re: big system, little truck

    I dont see what the problem is with a blow-through! I mean if done correctly....it could sound amazing!

    bodydropping the truck? how much are you bodydropping it?

    you could get away by running the ports of the box through the back, therefore allowing the bass to rush in to the cabin and still bodydrop that tank!

    anyhow i have buckets and blow through and i am very happy with it.
