My audio system setup.

Hey guys, I just wanted to post several photos of my system that I recently worked on in my car. I'm by no means close to being a woodworker, but I was able to manage to put in my subwoofers and amplifiers using the stock spare tire as an enclosure.

My audio equipment consists of:
-Two 10" Lanzar OA10 Subwoofers (USA Made before they cheapened out and went overseas.)
-Kenwood KAC-716 Mono Amplifier
-Kenwood KDC-348U Head Unit
-Alpine V12 MRV-F300
-Polk Audio DB651 Speakers










Most of the equipment aside from the speakers and head unit were from 1998 that used to be in my dad's old Mercedes. Surprisingly, these still give some of the newer systems a run for their money despite being fourteen years old. So far, I only have my subwoofers wired to my mono block amp; I'll be connecting the speakers soon hopefully to the Alpine once I have time. I was worried on how the subs would sound at first, but once I powered them on, they gave more than enough of the clean boom that I've been longing for. Nearly all of the rattling has been reduced with a little bit of sound deadening on the doors and as well as weather stripping at the bottom of the enclosure cover; all I can say is I'm extremely satisfied! The last thing I'm looking forward to on this project is to wrap the board with a neat and sleek looking vinyl or perhaps felt.

I love seeing woofer set ups in the spare tire cavity, great job. A little suggestion, get a small kit of fiberglass and make the rest of the internal enclosure. Your sound will be much better. This would also allow you to flush mount the amps as well. Big plus there is you regain all that rear cargo space.

Definitely will take that into consideration, thanks for the advice! I've been wanting to flush mount those amps since the beginning, but I was so anxious on just finishing the whole setup; I definitely will do those soon though when the time comes.

You don't really need to fiberglass it. You could just build the box beneath the baffle you have. I will add if you do another build mount your amps towards the sides and your subs in the middle. As if you rotated what you have 90 deg.
