Giant spare tire wells are a good friend for sub enclosures.
I really want to run a pair or tri 10" L7 setup in my trunk area. Those pics look nice. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

the sub enclosure took the place of the spare tire. the 2 amps sit on the normal deck of the trunk. the rest of the trunk floor was raised about 4 inches.

Hey Is Jeff still working there? I bought my old Alpine 7292S from them when it was Car Stereo. I know Don Aims (Last name sp?) still work there? That was when I stopped dropping in there.

If your running 5040 RMS, not watts. Then what are you running?

Did you mean your running 5040 Watts RMS, not Peak?

Re: The Official Picture Thread For All Audio Installs (Non_Affiliated)

it is like 10440 watts total...
- 3000 W MAX Mono Block Digital Amplifier (3 of these)
- 720 W MAX Bridgeable 4 Channel Amplifier (2 of these)
You know I was using a play on words..

When broken down into W RMS... it is 5040..

I jus did not wanna be like one of those dude rolling around saying he has a 10k W system... when your supposed to go by W RMS for true power..

Re: The Official Picture Thread For All Audio Installs (LelloBeetle)

here is my setup:
over all picture of the stereo

the 1000w MA audio amp (there is a fan, and the gauges are an indiglo color when the amp is on)

crossovers and other necessities to tie the factory speakers into the 1000w amp

like everything, its a work in progress... going to get re-carpeted in trunk liner to match. (the though about doing the sides and the rear seat in black was going through my mind... but decided against it)
the 2 middle 10's will be getting flipped to show the chromed basket/magnet
possible a separate 400w ma audio amp will run the high end... leaving the 1000w just for the bass.

big shout out goes out to PJ's Auto Sound for the install
Equipment used:
4 400w 10inch MA Audio Subs
1 1000w 4ch MA Audio Amp (running the bass and high end)
2 MA Audio crossovers for the front and rear high end
comming soon...
1 400w 4ch MA audio amp to run the high end so the current 1000w amp will be for the bass

why are you running 4 caps and two batteries on a stock alternator? I would like to find out what voltage your system is seeing and time how long it takes to totally fry your alternator and voltage reg. Neither battery is ever going to charge al the way up unless you set with no tunes for like 15 minutes your alternator is going to DIE pretty quickly if you really are running 5040 w. Please upgrade the alternator you'll lose about 10hp but hey you'll make yourself deaf and not have to worry about replacing a charging system.
