So I've mentioned before, sort of in passing threads, that my system was installed by a shop, Uttams, here in Guam. To put it politely, they suck. When I got my system installed about three years ago I didn't know anything about car audio. In that time I have consistently learned more and each time found that the shop did a crapy job on my system with one thing or another. About the only good thing they did was use legit power and ground wire. They didn't do a solid ground, but at least the wire was quality. So why am I starting this thread?
Like I said, I've done a lot of research, thank you tacomaworld, and decided that I'm going to redo the sub box and amp rack. Here's the plan.
Sub box will look like one box with one JL 10w3 on each side behind the rear seat, but will actually be two separate chambers. After reading a ton I decided on this for two reasons. 1) lots of reviews on long boxes having flex and needing bracing. 2) if one sub goes down I at least have one left with the right cu ft of air to push.
Next is I'm relocating my amp rack and making a custom mount under the seats in place of the storage. I've got some ideas to help with air flow and ill explain them when it comes time. This is going to be a couple weeks in the making as I'm waiting on my dynamat to show up. But I just did all the cuts for the box with my new tools. Ill take pics and post as I go along. Cross your fingers for me as this is my first box I'm ever attempting, and I got a D in woodshop in HS. Hopefully I'm smarter now.
