Part 4 - STEALTH!!
Cut out a board to fit the area in front of the amps: pics are back (grooves/dadoes) then front, just hole cut -
Painted it black, mounted angle braces in the grooves, covered with a rubberized mat (Lowe's) -
Pre-fit fan...works! -
Covered other side (front) with matching carpet -
Mounted fan, wired to relay (only comes on with stereo system) -
Pics of it in place. It just slides in/out easily. Pressure from the box keeps it in place with no mechanical fasteners.
Covers up the amps, box, etc. Now I can open my trunk at the grocery store and not worry about someone following me home.
Amps actually stay cooler than without! I love it.
(I didn't notice it, but one of my screw covers fell off...thats the one silver screw you see in the pics. It's fixed now and all four corners are black again!)
[Click on pics to see them bigger and better.]
Coax install in the rears soon...
