I'm not sure if that would work or not. It would certainly be close. As I have it now (once the amp is secured) I have complete access to the right side undercargo storage if I want to put something in there. To get to the spare tire compartment if needed is just a quick disconnection of the two speaker wires into the sub and lifting the box out. I will certainly be playing around with it more at night and this upcoming weekend.

Looks good man. Here is what i would do. Is there a storage compartment under the sub box? Or space to put the amp were the spare tire should be? If you mount it down there it will hide it and clean it up a bit in the back. Then i would fire the port at the rear glass, like flip it up at the roof. May sound better, idk. Lol.

There is a storage tray under the carpet that the amp would fit in and be completely out of site. I am considering putting it down there, but my concern is that the amp could overheat. Without much air flow and limited space I just think it would trap heat. Thoughts???

Don't think it will get that hot. If i dose you could add a small computer fan to the amp.

I was just gonna say that. Add a relay with your remote turn on wire and power a small fan onto it. Really simple and it displaces the heat.

Here is the product description for the package:

QUOTE
Product Description
This 800 watt system includes 2-10" MTX Magnum subs, a perfectly matched MTX Magnum mono block amplifier, and a MTX Magnum dual 10" sub box enclosure. These two high powered 10" subs come loaded and pre-wired (at 4 ohms) in the heavy duty trapezoid enclosure which saves you from having to spend an additional $80 building your own box. The 800 watt high powered mono block amp is perfectly matched to this enclosure and has both high and low level inputs with a built in crossover and bass boost. With the variable crossover and bass boost options, this subwoofer/amplifier package lets you customize the bass response to your vehicle. It also has 3-way Protection circuitry (Short/Thermal/Overload) which makes this amplifier virtually impossible to blow.


Here is a link to the MTX Magnum 800watt Package on Amazon. From my research it seems most everybody has been very happy with the package. A few reviewers mentioned replacing the amp with a more powerful one (say 1000 watt) which really makes the subs hit hard. Quite frankly, I don't have any need to replace the amp and they get plenty loud for me. I do still need to play more with the amp settings and once I do, I will post some updated feedback.

For the price, I'd say you can't beat it. I've spent $1,000+ on sub and amp packages and while they did get a little louder, I would be hard pressed to explain the cost benefit relationship between a $1000 system of my past and this $200 system. For me I'd rather save the $800 and use that to tint the windows, order a CAI, and replace either the headlights or taillights. I won't set off car alarms with this setup, but I can annoy the wifey laugh.gif

In regards to the overheating thing if you put the amp in the spare tire well, you'll be fine. Every system I have done, the amp always goes into the spare well. I've had much more powerful systems that I used to compete with that went into there with no problems at all.



The main benefit of going to a more expensive system, is the same for the higher cost home audio systems, WAY better sound quality. Once I get around to it, my door speakers will be components of some kind, just haven't decided which ones to go with yet though.

Alex, what about making a black screened cover for that lid of the storage bin to keep air flowing around the amp? Very nice setup!

That could certainly be an option. I dropped it in the compartment tonight and will check what its like after my 20 or so minute drive to work tomorrow. I figured that would be a good test to see how warm it gets prior to doing any longer trips.

I still keep looking down at the wheel well where the spare tire is and thinking how much room is down there. If I had time, I would pull the spare out, and fabricate a sub to put down there with something like a plexiglass cover. Here are some pics of the wheel well
