This S10 ZR-2 was brought in as a upgrade
to one of our earlier systems.
The old system consisted of 2 12" Hazelton
Apparition Series Subwoofers in a custom box from the
customers older S10.
He desided he wanted a bit more power, and
He wanted to add another 12" Subwoofer.
The design changed from 2 12" subs
firing forward towards the seat, to 3 12" subs firing
to the floor.
A small notch was put in place for the center
console to allow the box to hug around.
Everything is kept in the extended cab of
the truck, and keeping the factory jack in place.
(a bit hard to get to the jack, though)
Two fans were installed to circulate the
air in the amp rack.
One fan blows into the amp rack, the other
fan on the other side blows out.
The entire exposed enclosure was carpeted
to match interior color.
Wire holes were drilled for speaker wire
and power wires into the amp rack.
(test fitting pictured after carpeting)
After test running the system, the plexiglass
amp rack cover was installed.
Running the amps for a while gave the fans
a test, warm air was felt coming out of the exhaust fan.
the two amps are wired to the 3 12"
subs, with the larger amp used as a two channel, and the
smaller amp used bridged mono to the middle subwoofer.
Also an amp rack was intergraded into the
top of the enclosure.
The amp rack now displays the 2 Pioneer
Premier amplifiers and the 1 farad cap.
One of the amps, and the cap was hidden
in the old design.
The inside of the amp rack was painted black.
The amps and the 1 Farad Cap. was wired
The carpet was trimmed around the fan blade
opening only, to give the circle opening.
