Sometimes I wish my car were bigger so I could fit more stuff in it, and some times I wish it were smaller so it would perform better. It's pretty aggravating.
Remind me, why am I putting 3 12" JBL GTi's and 2200 watts of power in my car?
It might be iffy. 5 gallon is better.
One of my ideas was to connect some 4"-5" diameter pipe and mount it in the frame rails. There's a lot of wasted space there.
If you inserted a 2 ft. section at a time and then welded them together as you go along you'd have about 7 feet of tubing on each side. Then weld the tubing in solid at several points and it will double as a sub frame stiffener as well as a side impact barrier.
Here are the pics of the 18's. It goes super low, but only when the interior is sealed. Roll down the window and the output drops. It was built for competition which requires closed windows. It is a basic infinite baffle design.
Heyyyy Jason and Drew! I got so sidetracked but I wanted to say thanks again for steering
me in the better direction. I got that gold plated screw for the battery and I picked up some of those thicker screw rings. I've been trying to get the component speakers in (First time with components) and wiring and amp and all that fun stuff. Taking much longer then I expected but its coming along well , almost done! Sounding fun.
Here's another idea that popped into my head.
I may consider leaning that big amp down.
I finally finished v3 of my carPC project. After seeing so many better installs with 97+ Camaro interiors, I actually bought an entire dash off of someone specifically with the intentions of redoing the carPC bezel.
The dash swap was my winter project, worked on it a few hours throughout the course of the winter. After the dash swap was completed, it was time for the carPC project.
Here's my Show Off thread with the finished results:
Project Red Alert: 1994 Customized Camaro CarPC v3
And here's my two threads on my website which show the dash swap and the carPC project in it's entirety:
Looking good. Nice to have a write up over dash swaps
Do you remember if there is any room under the bottom center section on top of the trans tunnel?
I was toying with another idea just recently of moving the HVAC system to the rear seat area and putting a sub box with one of my massive JBL's in it under the dash. Crazy, huh?
That would really make it sound realistic.
It was really the duct work and maintaining defrost, etc... that troubled me. I was thinking I could run a vent tube under the passenger seat to shuttle the cold or warm air to where the fan would mount. If I kept all the stock dash ducts the only room I'd have for the sub would be where the evaporator and heater core used to be. I'm not sure it would be enough room. I'm not sure where I could draw fresh an from either. Its no big deal for the AC, but in the winter I usually mix outside air to the heat to get the perfect temp.
