cobra sub enclosure progress
:D we made progress on the sub enclosure and trunk layout this weekend. we verified the measurements and started the layout on the 3/4" MDF.
a lot of sawing with a jig saw and circular saw and 1 tube of wood glue and 43 wood screws later... we have.. a sub enclosure with volume for two polk/momo SVC 10's @ 4 ohms each.
and a test fit .. exactly as measured...
we also built the false floor with 1/2" MDF. we split the design in half to allow for installation and spare tire access. plans are still up in the air, but we are looking into outlining the base with some type of 3" foam and building a top cover to match the bottom for a complete stealth look. both pieces and the sub enclosure will be carpeted to match the current trunk.
component layout ideas
since we have two SVC 10" subs @ 4 ohms each. we will probably purchase another alpine amp MRD-M1005 to mount under the MRV-F545. after a bit of research some say the MRV-F545 will push the subs 2 ohm load bridged on channel 3/4 with no problems. but some say its only time that it will fail. until we purchase the sub amp we will run the polk/momo crossovers for the front via the MRV-F545 crossover. we will run the Alpine H701 crossover when the sub amp is installed and then the MRV-F545 will push the tweeters and mids and the MRD-M1005 will push the subs.
component layout with sub
the false floor meets the back of the sub enclosure.
thanks to the twins for all the help this weekend.....
more to follow......:buddy:
service holes passenger side
seems on the passenger side the AC lines etc get in the way. but, on the driver side there are a few grommets you can work through or add an aditional hole in the grommet to route wires through. i routed my power wire through the driver side via grommet at the firewall.
