Recommended ICE installations:
|Page currently under construction, but have a look at the sub-woofer installation that Dominic has developed. Absolutely awsome!!!||Find on this page:|
Dominic's Sub-woofer Install:
Here's what Dominic has to say about this amazing install...
Once Dominic has set up his web site with his amp installation completed, I shall link the URL from here.
Paul Sharpe's Amp and behind seat sub installation:
|Picture right shows how Paul
has up-graded his in-car entertainment. Behind both seats, he has installed Infinity subs
mounted in carpet trimmed MDF boxes. This does slightly limit the rearward travel of the
seats, but for Paul and Fran this does not represent a problem (other than robbing wine
storage space on their frequent jaunts to France!)
The other thing to see in this picture is the location of the amplifier (a Pioneer I think?). It is unobtrusively mounted under the seat - space that is other wise wasted. A great solution.
Not advisable if your car suffers from water leaks though - for very obvious reasons!!!
The teddy hear, by the way, is not an essential ICE fixture, but adds to the interior ambience!
Tweeter and amplifier installations:
Next a three pictures that folks have very kindly sent into me - but I've lost the identity of the donors - so if you recognise your car here, please let me know, and accept my humble apologies. Memory of a goldfish, me
|In the first picture, right, we can see a very neat high-level tweeter installation (Infinity). A very different solution to many that you may already have seen in doors, foot wells or on the dashboard under the windscreen. Potential for excellent stereo imaging here, but ideally, IMO those tweeters ought to be aimed across the cabin rather that the car following you.|
|In the next pair of pictures
(right, and right, below), we see a very tasty amplifier installations. Here you can see
that the amp is mounted up on the bulkhead wall.
WARNING: NEVER screw the amplifier (or anything else for that matter) to the bulkhead wall: the fuel tank is immediately behind the plate, and you WILL rupture the tank!
Here the amplifier is actually attached to the carpet (you can see the carpet, which despite being rather stiff, sagging slightly under the weight). This is a very sensible solution - and as you can see, all the power and speaker cables are neatly hidden.
Also shown in this picture are a couple of crossovers (Infinity again!), nicely symetrically aligned above the amp. Very nice!
