45w out of 4 channels is pretty good for an amp that is 189mm long. It would be Class D I guess, but they are much improved nowadays. My Boston is 4 channels at 100w RMS, but it is 560mm long. Not likely to get that behind your glovebox!

I don't have a pic of it finished, only a progress pic. The unit above it is a CD changer, and the other amp is an Alpine V12 Monoblock. View attachment 519144
OMG a CD Changer. Didnt they go out of fashion just after the graphic equaliser. :ROFLMAO: :ROFLMAO: :ROFLMAO:

Pioneer GM-D8704
  • Class FD 4-Channel Bridgeable Amplifier
  • 1,200 Watts Max Power
  • 4 x 100W RMS 4惟
  • 4 x 150W RMS 2惟
  • 2 x 300W RMS 4惟 bridged
  • 2 x 250W RMS 2惟 bridged
  • 4/3/2 Channel Amp
Its going to run a pair of:
Pioneer TS-D170C components (260W max / 60W nominal)
Pioneer TS-SW-251 10" slimline sub (800W max / 200W nominal)

I had the speakers in my old ute with a small kenwood amp and they performed as good as i want. However i did put some effort into the doors. Full sound deadening and i also made some panels to seal off the big holes in the doors. Got the idea from this video

Youngster, we had the 8 track.
Don't worry. I never had one but I'm old enough to have seen one and know what they are.

Fusion is the one for me..
Ticks all the boxes, 150w rms x4 @ 4 ohms..
450w rms bridged x2 @ 4 ohms..
Only has a small footprint due to it being a class D.馃憤
I always thought Fusion was a bit cheap and nasty for some reason, no recollection why though. How do they compare in the market do you think?

I reckon good timber sections in the doors work well if you have room. Depends on the vehicle of course.

Ive been thinking about this all day. I made new door cards in my old ute but wasnt happy with them. Firstly the melamine was a little too think and then i layed down a bit of foam that was again a little too think then the original upholstery over the top. In the end i had to lengthen the spline for the window winder so the handles would go back on.
I fixed speakers to a pair of pods i made then attatched them to the door card. It was all a bit heavy for the plastic clips.
This time im thinking i might use some of that composite sign board with the plastic sandwiched between a thin skin of ali. The on the back side of that i can stick some foam seal in the right places to make sure the door is fully sealed then mount the speaker to the door.
The only hard part of making a flat door card look factory is trimming it. The factory trimming has vynil and fabric as well as pressed lines to create a bit more texture.

What I have done on a few occasions is put my mounting screws through the door card into the door skin. So you may have a speaker pod, door trim/card, and then some timber behind as well some times if space permits, and a screw or bolt into a nutsert, that goes through the whole lot. Very solid.
