before i post this DIY, i'd like to ask the admins to make this post a "members only" viewable thread if it's not already so that the setup is exclusion to xB owners and not public eyes.
i know i already replied to this but the mentioning of the heat issues is covered aswell in the "requirements* section.great idea...but doesn't seem very practical. what if you need to make adjustments? you aren't concerned about heat?
hardly, like i mentioned above. my amp produces 120% more power than total RMS power that the subs can take, so it's not even breaking a sweat to power the subs i have. it got luke warm before when it was mounted to the bottom of the seat. i haven't ran it hard like i normally do justt yet to really know how warm it gets but i HIGHLY doubt i'll feel anything at all.The amp fits nicely. Does the seat get warm from it?
can't do anything to rear bench seat. the backrests are formed with big metal sheets. once you pull the carpet off the back, it's all sheet metal.That' very clean man, been trying to think of places to mound my cheap/ugly/old amp. Did you look to see whats inside the back seats at all?
Seems like the seat insulation/cushions is holdin in the heat therefore you can't really feel the full temp impact on the outside. That's a big azz JBL, I'd keep an eye on it if I were you........i've had the system playing at max for the past 5 hours. barely gets warm at all. heating isn't an issue what so ever.
