Default 2008 Altima's trunk

So my ideal trunk is to have as much space as possible, easy access to spare tire and being able to fold rear seats down (both parts of it) and carry long/oversized stuff that doesn’t fit in the trunk alone.
Having it look good woun't hurt either - plexiglass, led strips, fans if needed.....

Fiberglass sealed enclosure work for 12'' sub in the corner will soon begin but meanwhile I did this rack basically to practice and see for myself what I’ll need to do once I have all materials needed (another amp and sub lol).
I never did this before, figured having some practice and experience with it wouldn’t hurt before going all out.

For now a piece of plywood on top and some carpet and it’s good to go. Till I re-do it LOL.
btw – all those PA amps have their own harness with 2sets of wires for led strips or cooling fans if needed, I’ll make sure to use them for my final amp rack

Any ideas, feedback, criticism welcomed.

PA500.4's (100Wx4) front channels are pushing Polk Momo's (MMC6500) woofer in the front and rear channels (set to LPF) pushing Momo 6x9 (MMC690) in the rear.
PA200.4's front channels are pushing Momo's (MMC6500) tweeters.
This way I got bi-amp'ed comps in the front and 6x9s in the rear playing only bass and lower midrange.
Will add mono amp to feed my sub.... soon... Will possible get rid of 6x9s then (together with PA200.4) we'll see....













Just so happened i got a chance to carry queen size metal bedframe the very next day

Piece of plywood on top and matching carpet on top of plywood.

As i said before - this is my first rack before i get my sub in fiberglass sealed enclosure. Depending on how that will tirn out i'll re-do this amp rack. Plexiglass, led strips, fans if needed... For now i just wanted to clean up my trunk, get some space back and get some experience with building these racks.

Based on this one i can already tell that my "good" rack will:

- be build using 1x4 as opposed to 2x4 - really don't need those beams to be that wide, 1x4 will do just fine - more trunk space, less weight, same result.
- have small square 1/4'' plywood pieces under 4 corners of both amps to raise up amps 1/4'' of the floor so there's some air between amps and floor.
- about 3/4'' plywood pieces to go under momo x-over to bring them up top closer to future plaxiglass that will be showing my equipment for that "that looks good" effect

I'm basically looking for as many advices as i can possibly get since that's my first amp rack but general idea will stay the same.

I got MMC6500 - Polk Audio MOMO comps. GREAT comps!!
Good:
very punchy AND bass'y at the same time, no compromise.
bi-amp'able
Bad:
tweets are too bright for my liking. When not in bi-amped mode they are just to loud compared to mids. Ability to bi-amp them saves the day by lowering those highs thus bringin up mids. With that said i'm sure it's not fault thou - i placed tweets right next to the ears (side mirror covers) and away from woofers. If i intalled them in kick panels or door panel itself i'm sure they woun't apper to be as bright.

Overall i'd get these same comps for any car, very powerfull and clear at the same time. Techno kick drums never sounded better
