Thought I might put some equipment into the Vectra winter beater I have hanging around..
I started off by adding a 0 gauge power supply to the boot and decided to use a battery as the distribution block
(it is screwed into the metal floor with fastenings under the car)
TB3 under the hood
Alpine head unit and signal processor in a double din unit
Old skool rockford punch 40x2 on the stock speakers, I did have another amp lined up for the job but this fitted in the hole quite well and although it does not look it this is one of the best class AB amps money can buy!
I added a CXQ3 so I could adjust the sub amp from the front of the car without going into the head unit settings, it has a remote control for the front of the car which comes in quite handy IME
Things getting slightly more serious now with the soundstream XXX-10000D to power the subwoofer, this thing is rated at 10KW RMS if you can provide the power consumption....I will only be asking it to give out around 1500-2000w for the time being.
I would have liked to hide it away somewhere but that does not seem possible with something of this size.
I am sure the driver will be upgraded in the future for something that can handle around 4-5K but for now a single 12W7 from the loft will have to do, here we see the box in an unfinished state with the plan to make a false floor over the top of the box.
It is a 2.2cuft enclosure ported for 33hz with around 40" sq port
Cut some 6mm MDF to fit the boot area
And finish with a bit of ebay carpet.
I'll put a speaker grill over the port to stop anything rolling in there and never coming back out lol
