    just finshed my new false floor and repainted my box

    tell me what you think, i got another amp form a buddy of mine. for a good deal FREE!!(installed his new amp and cdplayer. ) ,so i redesinged my false floor to fit it in there.and i repainted my box because I just dint like the color of it,the old color just didnt show off the curves of the box well enough so i repainted it with the same paint i did my kicks my kicks in.







    more pics are on my page. what do you think?

    that looks extreamly nice. Very clean install there. I love the way you did the plexi glass flames. it looks awesome. i wish i had a car nice enough to do something like that too.

    very nice.. how do you build a false floor exactly? just cut out wood to your trunk parameters?

    i used cardbord to make a templet of my trunk the traced it on to 1/2 inch mdf then
    i use scrap wood to make stilts so the the weight of the false floor and what ever may be on top of it isnt placed on the amps. the floor is made of two peices so i can get it in and out of the trunk. heres a pic of the back of the floor

    How did you make the curved cuts in your plexi, with a jig-saw or scroll saw? Oh, where did you get the thicker plexi, all I can find around here is like 1/8 to 3/16ths? Otherwise nice install.

    i hate Audiobahns, so if you were to ask me what i thought about the install, my reply would be: It looks killer, clean, nice cuts in the plexi, i like the Cameleon paint over the plexi, amps are positioned nicelty.... but you only get a 9 out of 10 cause of the subs :p

    Heat Transfer Question

    I'm curious if using a false-floor effects performance of the amp. How would the amp dissipate heat if its closed in like that. Anybody see any problems with that?

    P.S. Great looking install.

    so far i have had no problems ,even with the crapy little amp the is hidden under the floor still no problems. but if i ever did run in to over heating problems i would just add a few fans too keep thing cool.

    ya im staring to hate them too ... there's a lot to say about a company that makes COSMETIC CHANGES to it products every year but never really tries to make there products better performance wise. so I might try MA audio because the car club im in might be able to get there stuff for 50% off or something like that , but if that doesn't go through im thinking of going with a pair of e-designs e12a's


    o-yeah! and thanks for all the replys

    Elemental Designs is the way to go...you'll like them twice as much as MA Audio...

    Exactly my thoughts, the other problem i have with Audiobahns is you pay 300.00 for a titanium sub and according to specs its comething like 1000 Watts RMS. Try putting a thousand to that sub and count how many hours it takes to blow it

    Second problem is that the bass reproduction is probably the sloppiest i have ever heard on a sub with the exception of alot of off-brand and low end subs. Cosmetically (like you said) they are nice, and they hit hard for the buck! But they are so over rated and so many people have them it makes me want to puke lol it looks like your taking a better approach to it though... never the less. . . the install is bad ***
