the amp rack has gone through a few full revisions. I have been very unhappy with my designs. My first amp rack won't ever be seen, i destroyed it. It had a flavor of myh old system but the amps just didn't look good with them so i tossed it out. I then added some more components and had to do a mojor rethink of the system... false floor here we come.
my first layout left something to be desired. again i tried a layout that was similar to my http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=51708 but it didn't work:
i decided it needed some more 'flare' so I layed them out at some oposing angles:
i liked that so onto the facade. i originally thought that having the amps be flush with the floor; like the old design, would look great. what have we learned? THE NEW AMPS AREN'T LIKE THE OLD AMPS!! here is what it looked like:
so then i decided to open it up a bit. i liked this look but something wasn't striking me:
i liked the lines but it was just too much going on. the lines of the amps didn't match the windows for the dac and car pc (you can see the car pc window in the lower right) there was just too much going on.
so i took the amp rack into my room and had Koda take a look at it
after a closer look he shook his head 'no'
so that design was tossed out as well.
Koda and i sat for a few more days just looking at the amp rack in my room. then it came to me. follow the lines of the trunk! so here i am today... happy:
I'll keep you updated as time goes on... there are a few finishing touches that you guys wont see until the final 'show off your project' thread... but the meat and potatos will be here.
oh .... and the x-over is off center because it's just resting there right now, not bolted down.
