    centering the sub

    Is it necessary to to center the sub in your incloser? I have a 25 inch long box I made and I want to mount the sub all the way to one side with the amp on the other. Will this effect the sound?

    yea they do------and it has-----thing is mounting to the box isn't the problem--------it's the fact that it's in the car. the road vibration[bumps-pot holes-] and the fact that the subs vibrate the hell out of the whole car. you CAN'T escape the vibration no matter where you put the amp. If a person was really worried about vibration i'd tell them not to even put the amp in a car.

    Yeah, Ive seen some guys with some pretty funky looking enclosures...inside was some foam and a cooling fan...I'm bet it worked alright but its pretty dam hard to escape all the little bumps along the road

    How about mounting it on little rubber blocks? Like engine mounts or spacers on a car frame?

    i've had my amps mounted to my box for a long *** time and have never had a problem. THe box doesnt shake more than anything else. I guess its "been proven" but until my amp falls apart i'll have to disagree. It seems to me that when the bass hits the box doesnt even shake.. i dont notice anyways. Besides its wood and has carpet on top which helps resist the vibration i would imagine. sure if you had it mounted on plexiglass or somethign it would probably rattle and shake all kinds. People try to tell me to make something on the bottom of my trunk to mount my amps to but i see no point in waisting all that space when they fit perfect on top of the box. I have thick mdf wood so my screws arent going through. I think if i put the amp right in front of the subs it would be worse than on top.



    brahma 12 in 1.9 cf ported enclosure tuned to an ugly 38hz..

    REVO amp
    stock speakers in the front..

    looking to upgrade..

    But this would kill the vibration that has "proven" to ruin amps. The fact that it's in a "moving car" has nothing to do with it.

    Yes it does. Even if you just put a amp in your car without it running anything, the everyday wear and tear(potholes, etc) will eventually take its toll on your amp...I'm sure Chris can explain it in more depth cause obviously you arent gonna just believe me.

    think of it like this-----you sit on 4-5inches of springs and padding in the seat-------- you still feel the bumps, turns, braking and acceleration. not even taking into account that you still feel the bass too though the seat

    I know that...but think if you weren't on a seat??? Think if your car had no shocks???? Don't you think that would be worse? That's my point...putting the amp on rubber mounting blocks would drastically cut down on the vibration. Just like the shocks on you car.
