Stereo & Electronics - Sub?
05-27-2002, 02:25 PM
I THINK that there might be a way to get a sub with a built in amp on it and still retain a stock system. But b/c u said that u still want to use the t-top holder then there is not a lot of room to put it. One thing you could try is get someone who is up grading there sound system and get there subs off of them. Like try to find someone that has a new car that way the subs arent old or blown. Hope this helps

There is a module that is sold at most car audio places that will convert the high out put of a deck to RCA's. This will allow you to run a small amp pushing something like a 8 inch Kicker solo baric or even a 10inch that can be stuffed almost any where. Neither one need a ton of power and the box is small. I would go with the dual 4 ohm voice coild rather than the dual 2 ohm. This way you can wire it into 2 ohm and get more push from the amp.
A 8 inch solo baric L5 in a sealed box would need between .33-.75 cubic feet (I would go closer to the .75).. Ported .66-1.0 (I would go closer to 1.0)
A 10 inch would need .66-1.0 for a sealed box (You guessed it I would build it closer to the 1.0)
The 8 in a ported box might produce close to the same amount of DB as the 10 in a sealed but will have a different sound. The 8 in a ported box will tend to drone a little more and not be as tight sounding as the 10 in a sealed box.
As for an amp I would look at these 3 for starters:
Rockford Fosgate 200s
The MTX and Fosgate put out more than the kicker but are a little more money. I feel the Kicker would have enough to push the 8 or even the 10 if bridged and running the sub in 2 ohm.
All in all you would be looking at about $400-500 for everything if you build the box yourself. Hope that helps.

You'll need a PAC-1 which plugs directly inbetween the radio and the harness.It will give you 2 RCA's(front and rear) and an amp turn on lead.
For sub enclosures you will have a few choices.You can go with the ussual 10" sub in the rear driver side storage area,or like me go with a Milhouse box which replaces the rear trunk flap.With this setup you still have T-top storage and as much bass as you want.The box can hold 2-10's or 1-12" sub.
I have one JL audio 12w3-4ohm bridged to 2 ohm being run by a Rockford fosgate 500.1 bridged to 600 watt rms and the thing kicks a$$.

I have a stock cassette/12 disc changer in my car, and was wondering if a sub could be run to give it a bit more bass?
I don't want to go changing the whole system out, as I think it sounds awesome except I want just a tad more bass. I'm not looking for mega-expensive either. I listen to hard rock / metal, with some techno and industrial, so I don't need something that's going to blow my windows out <img border="0" title="" alt="[Smile]" src="gr_stretch.gif" />
I also don't want to lose the t-top storage area either. Impossible?

Thanks everyone, that's exactly what I was looking for! <img border="0" title="" alt="[Cool]" src="gr_images/icons/cool.gif" />
