    hello from sunny lancs England

    hello from sunny lancashire England
    i have a vw t4 transporter 2003 i am planning on a basic camper convention but i want to install a sound system its been ages since i have done one and i have never done one on a van
    i have pioneer 8100 head unit, jl monoblock amp,1xjbl 12" bass tube ,2x 12"rockford fosgate punch and no idea where to install speakers for optimum space and sound .
    my plans with the van is a seat/bed and a small cooker that i have on a draw assembly behind drivers seat
    and a leisure battery to go in somewhere .
    i know i need to buy a load more bits when i can afford them but just like to get good advice before i buy anything
    thanks jay

    Welcome. Much to learn here. And don't take anything too seriously.

    pics to follow when i work out how to post pics on here
    yes i was planning components in the front doors but was wondering where to put tweeters in doors or on A pillar top or bottom
    i have already done the rear panels in a rubber flashband stuff i had left over from a basement it was used as 6"tape on a tanking basement system i thought it would deaden the noise on the metal panels

    Re: hello from sunny lancs England

    in some of the areas in your van .like in the cabinets or under the bed you might be able to build enclosures for the mids which will help them sound better .the tweets can be installed in the upper part of the doors or you can get an upstage tweeter system for the a pillars
