Ok, so I bought some subs w/ box and have used it pretty much as is since (slight appearance mods, but nothing structurally)
my problem is, I have no place for an amp. it's currently mounted on the back of the box, behind the rear seats (2006 scion xb). basically the amp is overheating due to lack of air flow/space...
current sub setup: (both I would like to upgrade)
2 - 12" audiobahn Q ALUM12N (1000w)
1 - power acoustik 1440 amp
so a friend suggested I reconfigure the box to create a "self cooling" system.
problem is, I have no idea how to properly reconfigure the box so I not only can properly cool the amp, but also have quality sound.
my thoughts for the new box:
^^(side view) the "amp area" would be added on, keeping the same interior box dimensions and lifting the box a bit higher....
actually pics of the box:
behind the rear seats:
^^ as you can see, very little amp space. seats pretty much (when up) sit on the amp...
^^ugly wiring, but you cant see it....
the possibilitys of the new box is to either have the new "port" faceing the back side of the seats, or to face it towards the trunk w/ vent so the amp is not visible....(its an ugly amp)
I prolly could really simplify this by just floating the amp over the subs, but I dont like the look of the amp. and I'm into car shows, so its all about appearance.
(obviously its just a hobby and for fun, im not too crazy. besides, the car is a daily.)
any help would be appreciated. I am still learning audio and everything involved.
I can pretty much dress up anything, I just need help with a proper design....
