Hello all. I'm going to do full new system in my '06 extended cab and would like to get some opinions from everyone about which direction is best to face a single sub. I want to do a single 10" sub. I'm not looking for a huge bass system, just a really good sound quality system. I've searched around on RF and Google and I've seen downward facing, sideways facing, and forward facing boxes. I want to locate a single sub in place of one of my jump seats, which I will remove. I would like to design the box so that it's large enough that I can mount the amp to either the side or the top of the box.
Here's everything that I have in mind, opinions are welcome, I haven't made any purchases yet:
Kenwood KFC-P509PS 5-1/4" 2-Way Component Speaker System Set times two, for the front and rear.
Kenwood X700-5 5-channel amp
Kenwood Excelon KFC-XW10 10" Sub 4-Ohms
Kenwood Excelon KDC-X597 single-din head unit
I also plan to use DynaPad in the floor, and DynaMat everywhere else, including the rear wall and roof. I'm going to use speaker baffles in the front and rear doors.
I already have dual batteries since my Ranger is wired up for a winch, but so far my alternator is still stock. Should I consider a capacitor? What size wire should I use for the amp? And the speakers?
Any input is appreciated! Thanks!
