stick amp tray up underneath the parcel shelf

This one folds down (for show), but there's no need to. There's no overheating problems - there's now a much bigger (power wise) amp in place of the red one.

gros20 you have done busbar work in ur car ?? as in big copper beams for power ??

Also, DO NOT run power and RCA cables near each other as you will get mucho interference through your RCA, results in a high pitched whine (from the alternator) aswell as various other cracks and pops and annoying noises ...

Best advice is to run your RCA down 1 side of the car and power down the other...
Ive run my power cables down the driver side as thats where the battery is, heaps easier then stuffing around running cables everywhere.

If you need any help dont hesitate to msg me and i'll try to help you out :)

yea bus bar ive run to but of 4" aluminium bus bar one bolts to support sin boot area for earth and one on a ssingle insulator for active.

this way it is easy as to add battery to teh system later on.

RCA and power is down there own sides but the prob is on my amp rack i have flared port for cable entery can ll cables go thru there or just rca's


im more than knowalagable on it all but just needing ideas for mount but ive atatched about 5 pieces of scrap mdf to bring rack out far enough so 2morrow i cna FINALLY hook every thing up.

have DB meter in car ready to go 109db with just teh rear supersound speakers lol

lets se if we can add another 35 to that
