Stereo Plans/Progress
Updated 11/29/97

My temporary setup includes 2 JL Audio 15W6 15" Subs in a sealed enclosure running off a Kicker ZR240 stealing the signal from the factory "subs", the 6x9's.

I also have the following equipment that will soon be going in, as the rest of the parts come together.

The front speakers have been replaced with Morel 6.2's. 6.5" midbass and 1" soft dome tweeters with 12db crossovers. I am currently running a Kicker ZR240 in stereo on the front set. I will be running 1 ZR240 amp running bridged (240 watts) on EACH 6.5/tweet component set in the near future.

The JL 15W6 subs are in a sealed enclsoure, white laminate interior, neon, and 3/4" plexi rear for show. I am going to run 1 ZR240 amp running bridged (300 watts) on each 15W6.

Total power class is 480 watts, although I'll be pushing a conservative 1080 watts (actually closer to 1350).

Where are these amps (and EQ, 2nd battery, etc.) gonna go? Current plan is to cut out my spare tire well and have a new one (much larger) fabricated out of Stainless Steel. It will have 2 "levels", 1 that will hold 2 of the amps, the battery, wiring, etc.... and the 2nd level will hold 2 more amps. The cover will be more 3/4" plexiglass that will make the new "floor" of the trunk. What about the EQ? Depends on which one I end up using... either down in the new well, or on the bottom of the trunk lid.
