Where to put two amplifiers? - Page 2 - GM Forum - Buick, Cadillac, Chev, Olds, GMC & Pontiac chat


Audio (and aftermarket electronics) This is your place for alarms, remote starters, to brag about your system, exaggerate your db levels, or simply ask questions for stock or aftermarket audio. No Flames! (except from roasted amps)

you would be surprised at the sound quality of the dual products...

The only thing that i have heard is that their subs dont take to much of a beating, but they hit pretty hard...

I think that dual is owed by power acoustick which is a pretty good manafactuer in my opinoin
Yea everyone throws it over their shoulder, granted they arent superb quality but its good stuff, especially for the price!

Hey now!.. I was a nieve person and WHO COULD refuse a 460W amp AND TWO SUBWOOFERS for $99

Especially when all you want is a little bass and all you have is pocket change from being a non-working teen.

(Im working now... looking to upgrade to JL sub and amp eventually)
imo, jl amps are way too over priced, the 1000/1 is like 800 bucks isnt it?

the subs are expensive too, but they are sweet (just the w6 and w7)

Hey I'm going to install an amplifier and i've never done it, how do you get the power cable and the other one to the deck to the front, is it through the center console?

My power cable runs down under the car (drilled a hole right between the back seat and trunk) and then up to the battery

My RCA cables run under the carpeting on the right had side of the car up to the Head unit.

Why is the panel that BMSgaffers and 1993 SLE mounted their amps to different?
1993 SLE'* is flat with a slight notch at the top and bmsgaffers is 'railed'.

Can't remember how they were in my cars when I pulled the carpet panel out.

I believe that BMSgaffer added the rails to the back for support. I added the supports on the inside facing the seat

Theres your answer right there The plastic on the back is too flimsy to hold up amps, so we just used different methods of support.

I think those amplifiers are better mounted to the car than parts of my suspension are
