140? What happened? I did more than that on 1500w. But to do it at 30hz is boss. I just finished wiring mine up today. Doesn't feel like a 50 but it gets low. We'll see. I'm actually buying a meter tomorrow. So ill post numbers. Make take a video

I've got two Kicker Comp 12s behind my back seats in the trunk. I ordered a custom box off of ebay and it fits perfectly.

It will obviously be much louder at higher frequencies, it is much harder to play lower frequencies loudly (You have to move a lot more air).

Oh I know. I thought you means that's where he was peaking. I metered mine the other day. 46.2 under 40 hz with very little gain. . Ill post the whole build after work.

Is the interior space even close to the recommended? How does it sound? I like the idea but I'd be nervous of not having enough cubic feet in there for my sub to hit. I'm only running one 10" at the moment and I have it at around 0.78-0.8cu.ft (recommended for mine is 0.75-1cu.ft sealed) inside not excluding the ~0.05 the sub takes up.

I just finished a stereo system overhaul that I've been working on over the past year in my '03 TJ (mostly as a result of budget limitations, poor weather, and time constraints) but I think it turned out pretty well. My buddy and I built custom fiberglass enclosures for the wheel wells and put a 10" shallow mount and a 4" mid on each side and then painted over it all with Monstaliner to match the rest of the Jeep interior. Ran most of the wiring down along the passenger side on top of the wells in some split loom that I painted a tan colour...might adjust that colour later on and just need to seal up the amp and around the speakers with some silicone this week once the paint is fully cured.

Just curious why you went with 4" for the mids. I'd have gone with a 5.25 or a 6.5. Or even a pair of 6x9's if I was building something that custom.

Sorry for late response, I haven't been on this forum in a while. They're SA8v2's.

They are absolute monsters for their size and price. Shipped to me at 24lbs per subwoofer.

Thanks man, I'm happy with it. Just waiting on some neoprene seat covers to make it completely rain friendly. Actually when my buddy and I sat down to build it his initial plan was to have just the subs in the back but I thought it would look too plain so I suggested the mids mostly for aesthetic reasons but I've said the same things at this point about using larger ones...we were really tight for space (and money) though so just threw the cheap 4's in. I'm thinking about maybe throwing another set of them in to the amp rack maybe just above and below it but for right now, I'm content.

As for the back seat, I took mine out as soon as I bought the Jeep cause I just don't feel the need for it personally, but I have been thinking about getting a bucket seat or something and remounting the hardware and seat belt in the back for a third seat right in the middle.

Yeah, after I posted that, I looked at the pics again. I realized you might be tight on space the way it was built.

Back in my younger days, I could have ran without a backseat, at least in the summer. I took a girl from our neighborhood to school, as well as my little sister, but it was just me and my girlfriend (now wife) in there most of the time. Now I've got a daughter who needs the backseat for her booster seat, and a son due any day now. So it is carseats and school carpool dropoffs for me.

Hey, at least you're still rocking a Jeep! I'm still pretty young so hoping I have a few more years before I have to start designing my next system around a booster seat in the back, haha. Congratulations on the new (or soon-to-be) addition to your family!

Cheers!

Thanks! He was born a few hours before you posted this. Still haven't taken him for a ride in it yet, but a skeptical wife will do that to ya. I need to install his seat first too. He probably won't be riding in it until August when my wife starts back to work and my girl is in Kindergarten. I may be dropping him at his daycare then, but we just haven't figured that out yet.
