Boomin_tahoe's s10 build

Recommended Posts

Unfortunately, I can't measure yet. I made the inside 2.75" tall instead of 3" it was supposed to. And of course I cut twice and measured once. So at the time I was building this, I said scew it and went with it. But the tp board barely doesn't touch the amp so I guess this will work. I'll figure something out if it does get warm/hot later on. When you ran it on all channels, did it get hot on you or warm? It's very close to getting done. Just have to route the wiring, and I got a few "wood brackets" I came up with a nifty idea to keep the sub enclosure from moving around. I'll post pics of it later as I'm still constructing the small pieces.

She will get warmed up banging all day/4 hours hard and heavy.But does well. Since the enclosed amp structure is built and finished, to keep things cool, Id recommend a suction fan on one end of the amp enclosure and one exhaust fan on the other end for a good air flow if need be. wouldnt cost much to add the two fans, maybe 30 bucks?And a few screws,and cut a hole on each end.

https://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_5282_PAC-PF-2.html two of these,may not need that many CFMs,maybe two of these which are actually made by Stinger that should be enough airflow

I always give approx 1/2"-3/4" under every amp i install so air gets underneath and around them.Sitting on a flat surface, they get heated up. Ive used aluminum pegs/ spacers when i bolt mine down, sometimes just 4-6 washers at min. I like the spacers better.Looks good and like a clean install with a small washer on top.

Helps keep amps running cooler and doesnt cost much to raise them up.Heat kills!! LOL, but for the most part that amp runs well.Just let me know if you ever want to set it up for sale, Ill more than likely buy it back?Great amp

Yup, just finished installing it yesterday. Still 1/2ass done because I still need to cut the 3/8" plexi to size and drill/counterbore holes for small bolts but my mill machine is down until I order a new part. Prob finish installing the front ch speakers to it next yr as it's winter here now, rain, cold, and gets dark early. But a bit of an update for those watching this build. Going for black/white theme to match the color of my s10 and my sub which is black/white lettering. Gonna order some black/white speaker wire soon to match the rest.

It's taken some time fore sure...I think the stain for the majority of the part and polyutherane the box and amp tray area took up the most part. I got some black/white speaker wire yesterday in the mail and made a small change. Out with the blue and in with the new :D

Oh trust me, I was w/o bass for a long time!! It's the way it goes sometimes. Working on multiple projects at a time, the SS amps are sold, redoing the amp rack for the new Wolfram amps, and my machine went tits up until I can buy a new switch for it. So that is on hold for now. I was working on the s10 install a little at a time in between working 2 days extra per wk. at my job.

Well it really looks nice ! And it’s probably nice to be back in bass again too ! I am still driving around without for now but the new truck does have Bose system so better than nothing but far from what I had lol

Amp doesn't get warm, btw. I wonder if it's because I'm only running the sub ch atm but that's good news. Wait until I get the front ch/comps hooked up it may start to get warm afterwords.

I ran SQubed HDS312 on it with a set of CDT Braxial 6.5 with upstage tweets,and a set of Hertz 6.5 Coax and a set of Kicker KS25 tweets  for a temp set up while I was building out my Honda, and started on my first wall in the truck.She ran warm.But I always run my amps elevated and always with an external. I later tried those Dayton HO tens/pair, did nicely

That 8 def want's more power. I cannot turn past 22 on my HU because I have my speakers runnning off of it atm until next yr when it warms up and then hook them up to the amp. But for now I got some bass back. Surprisingly it does sound fairly good....and that HU I have has some power it can keep up with the sub.

Of course, I can't wait until next year to get it finished up. I found a way to cut the plexi to the point where all I would have to do is size it up on my mill then drill/counterbore the bolt holes. Then I made these to replace the small ones...

Nothing like customizing.Always satisfaction in the end.Id like to get a nice router set up again by summer.Been a while since Ive used one.Time as well.

I've had my Craftsman router for several years now. Back when Sears actually gave a shit about their customers. Still works good tho.
