Amps are neatly installed in those custom made plywood enclosures. Crossovers are on the boot door. Damping is done using that foam, waste cloth and sheet. Plywood is also used in some places like on the boot door and is covered with carpet.







Better pix will be up 2moro....
So hows the install?? Any changes or anytin to be made???

Yea that is the normal cushion type foam used. Over it there is a sheet, over it the amp. A lot of waste cloth was used on the boot door that it cannot stay up. It closes automatically . Planning to use Dynamat on it, or do sumtin elz like a stand or a hydraulic setup

The boot door is heavy, and it'll close unless someone holds it up (its not THAT heavy). So the last thing i want is it falling on mine/someones head

If u have any ideas, share them.

Does look very well done Karthik.... I give you that!

I honestly dont know about he materials used... Would Wurth not been an equally cheap and cost effective option - Yet neater?

The amps look well done!... But hope they have not seated it on foam... bad news viz cooling.. hey has that amp heating problem been resolved?

Zuhemi's car got the same problem. And He made a small peice of metal pipe with a hook and it is used to hold the door up when open.

No no no...amps arn't done in foam. See post #43, first pic. A carpet is pasted inside that box and the amp is fitted on it.

Yea amp heating issiue solved now. Works just fine at the moment. Only thing is the spoiler still rattlers a wee-bit.

Whole setup, including damping, installing, cables, fuses, everyting is arnd 6k.

Have u changed some thing to boot door or some like that it has become heavy.

In a normal case there are two twisted rods attached on both the ends of the boot levers so that the boot can stay in position and would be easy to lift because of the spring action of the rods. (hope u would understand)

Have u removed them kya. which makes the boot heavy.

Nope..its become heavy cuz we used waste cloth to damp it and then used plywood to fit the crossovers. Nutin has been done to the levers. Its just that the weight is a bit too much for the springs to handle. It will stay up, only if someone holds it like that.

Kb they are not hydraulic type of cylinder. They are spring loaded with some liquid filled them, when the boot is opened the liqiuid starts to follow from a slow oriffice which make the spring to open slowly which in turn allows the spring to open smoothly without any jerk thats all.....

For lancer he would have to do some thing else.

When I have esteem I had installed two 12 inch rear shelf and I had to remove that two spring rods which i was taking in the earlier post which also made the boot very heavy, it could not be lifted with one hand. so when i used to open the boot I made a drive in the supporting bars in the complete open position and put a rod in between so that it does not fall down.... will try to put some pics If i have....but this is again a desi juggar.....lol


karthik So i think leave it as it is, if u do change some thing it will lead to some other complication.....
