As you may have read, I decided to ditch the low end pioneer and kenwood amps that were mounted to the floor under back seat, and the dual 10” sealed sub box with Skar subs that couldn’t play below 40hz in favor of something different. basically all that is left at this point from PO is the skar 4x6s and some monster brand RCA which are fine. I’ve removed or replaced everything else Audio wise. Shoot, I spent two days back tracking add on wiring and either removing it at source, or rerouting it properly and safely So it isn’t an entanglement hazard for my feet. Everything is now correct and wired correctly And 30 years of hacks undone.
I’m going to be running the 4 cab speakers and the denali sub off a Memphis PRXA700.5, and I have a matching Memphis PRXA1500.1 for a single future rear 12”. So I need to build an amprack that stacks them on one side leaving as much room as possible for a future sealed enclosure with an IDQ12. Those like about 1.5-2.0 cubes, though they can get by with less.
I plan on playing the 12 from 20-55 ish and letting the denali sub play from 50hz to about 80-100 for upfront bass.
this both a 5 channel and monoblock sub amp.
these amps are all “bottom feed” for connections, so sides and top edge are unencumbered by wiring, and they are identical sizing so if I ever needed to stack them with a rack style amp rack it would be easily to do. The controls are in the face of the amp, not a side So unless I went back to using a Hertz DSP for tuning that would not work well.
for now, since I have no tunes except my phone speaker, I will build a simple rear wall rack on rear drivers side, since my teen son sits on that side and my kinder daughter on passenger side rear can more easily afford to have more upright seat or farther forward Seating for sub box clearance if needed.
Went just now to Lowes to get a 2x2 x 1/2 birch plywood board board to make an amp rack, grabbed a 2x2 square poplar “dowel“ to use as a spacer for bottom amp So it sits out farther, letting me run all the wiring behind the bottom amp. Any way something very simple and cost effective, while hopefully not looking like total booty.
no interior pics other than the above, I was more concentrated on getting done than documenting.
will try to take some this weekend when I go to the C10 meetup/cruise, or to the Detail Garage Rides amd Coffee this Sunday.
but it really is night and day. Makes me want cream, buttermilk , light neutral seatbelts too. Or chocolate brown to match The seats.
