I've made a thread which details what's going on underneath the flat deck and the entertainment upgrades involved

http://Power inverter & flat deck (l...6&share_type=t

Regarding the rear bench removal, I simply remove the 4 bolts (two holding the bench structure, two holding the lower frame where the bench just clips in). Then I unbolted the seat belts off the floor and thug the upper sections back into the sides (not mandatory, but I didn't need them to flap around, I'll fish them out when or if I ever undo the rear deck mod). I bolted back the lower frame and a piece of 3/4" plywood on top of it, then 2 block of woods with braces in the front and a old extruded aluminum track in the rear. Then I cut another 3/4" plywood to fit the shape that's widening after the rear wheel wells. The plywood goes from 44" wide to 52" and is 24" deep. I have about 6" to spare underneath the plywood, but installing sound proofing foam panel reduced that to less than 4". I really just used what I had laying around to make that deck and during rainy days when I had nothing to do. Someone else had a thread on a similar flat deck setup, except they went all out and welded a frame for the deck, etc.

I've loaded over 200lbs of cargo on the deck often and its solid. At first I had it popping open toward the front using hinged supports, but it wasn't that useful. Now it's only testing on the supports and held by a screw in both front studs, so it's quick to remove with a screwdriver if you ever need to (which I only did when working in the equipment underneath). I then slid several accessories underneath the deck to store them out of sight and out of the way. In the passenger side next to the inverter, I have a set of booster cables, a golf umbrella, a 12v professional tankless compressor, etc. My main goal was to get all the equipment tucked away and free up as much cargo space. I've slept a few times in the back too on roadtrips.

Oh, and with the plywood deck leaving just 2" space above the powered sub (8", 300W RMS), it creates a huge resonance cavity that shoots the low frequency of the sub straight toward the front seats and the sound is amazing in the car, you can get feel the vibrations troughs the seats and steering, but you don't have to turn it up much, aka you keep the party in the car and you don't bother the others outside like if you were to boast >1 000W of bass. I've had many people who are band members and specialize in audio mixing and they really love the sound quality you get in the front seat, particularly the bass response that is really smooth even when you crank it up hard. Before the deck setup was fully complete, my sub was sitting on the carpet where the spare battery is and it was hitting good in terms of shock wave, but you wouldn't get that smooth and deep sound flowing, it was hard to balance it to get that boom without loosing all of the mid and high from the other speakers.

Paired with a set of tweeters in the front, it's really smooth to the ears and immersive. I don't think you'd get that nice of a sound if you'd burry your sub speaker into the trunk, you'd rattle the sheet metal more than anything else.

those amps aint heat sunk properly

theyre meant to be chassis bolted not just for proper grounding

run em hard and long and the thermal cutoff switch will trip or youll burn em up

dont ask how i know

maybe its cold enough there to not be a problem

Talking about my setup ?

If so, the blue one on passenger side is a Samlex Pure Sine 1 000W inverter, continuous duty. It as a built in fan and thermal sensor to protect the unit (Samlex maker high-end/commercial duty products, this particular unit came from a cellphone data tech work truck). I only use it for short periods of time, aka microwave my lunch once in a while. It has enough air flow around it for the fan to do its job (I'm an electrician).

The black one to the right is a SSL LoPro 8, 8" under seat powered subwoofer, with a heavy aluminum casing heatsink, very similar in design and shape to my inverter, but without a fan. It does have thermal sensor for the amplifier power part, although I don't think the subwoofer coil is protected since it's a entry-level product. Still it does have enough air around it (as mentioned before, at least 2" on top) and nothing around it just like pictured. It was getting hot for the first few days when new, but that was still when I had it sit on the carpet behind my seat, where my spare battery now is, and it was summer, so the air vent under my seat was blowing on it. After the first few days, it's been running cool ever since. I do check it periodically as well as my inverter for signs of heat (usually once a week and during/after extended use), because I am aware of how much heat these unit could generate and how well they need to dissipate it. Still, I don't need to run it hard to get a lot of bass, thanks to the way the deck is made. There's a lot more air under my deck and around the units than you could expect to get under a car seat where these units where designed for.

Sorry for your loss.

I had a smart one this morning.



Guy parked right in front of my yard. I had to borrow another car to get to work.



Then when I came home this afternoon, car was still there. Called the city, they wrote him a fine and the towing is on his way.

My neighbors helped with the snowblower and cleaning up the place.





And I wanted to switch back to my summer wheels tomorrow :/
