Ok so moving on, I ran 6 channels of quality rca's to the rear of the Blazer. I don't have any pictures of this step but basically i ran the rca's down the center console and then crossed them over to the passenger side under the rear seat. I then ran the power wire down the driver's side. Each of the rca's and power wire were mounted to the floor with sticky zip tie mounts every 3 - 3.5 inches as to compile with IASCA and MECA rules. I took this step in order for my future preparation to compete in car audio.
The only picture I have of this step is how the wires run out of the carpet where it breaks under the rear seats. You can see the wires are completely hidden from view:
You can see the extra set of rca's I ran for the future addition of a 3-way front install. Again I figure I better do this right the first time so I don't have to redo it later to fit my anal taste.
So moving onto the box build, dual Type R subs ideally like a 3.2^3 - 3.5^3 enclosure tuned to 33 - 35 hz. So I drew up some plans for the box and got them checked by several accredited members on diymobileaudio.com. The box came out to 3.45^3 tuned to 35 hz.
Here is a picture of the box:
and some s10forum.com love:
I covered the box with fake suede as it matches the interior very well. I also built the sub box to be easily removable as it is held in with two allen bolts that bolt to the factory cargo tie downs. All wires are secured to the box and only require the subs to be taken out, rca's unplugged, distribution block unscrewed, and the two allen bolts to be undone for the box to be removed and returned to factory condition.
You can see the techflex on the speaker wires and related wires for the box here:
Also I know there is extra wire everywhere as I plan on building a fake floor soon with the addition of a 3-way front install. Thanks for checking everything out and plase let me know how you feel about my install!!
Oh and p.s. I am only running the subs at 300 - 350 watts at a 4 ohm load right now while they "break in" but i plan on running the subs at 700 - 850 watts at a 2 ohm load after they properly "break in." Oh and just so you know the crack in my windshield has grown 1" since installing the subs
which means I have to buy a new windshield very soon.
