Kenwood Excellon 10" Sub and Amp, oh yeah and my deck.

Still a work in progress, waiting on my speakers to come in but the wonderful thing about the cozy cab of a Ranger is you don't need a huge sub to move the air. Installed a Shallow 10" Kenwood Excellon powered by a...lets call it vintage Kenwood 400 watt amp.

Because it is a shallow sub we were able to save alot of space. Check it out (took pics with my cell so the quality is a bit lacking):

Nice setup man. How did you buckle the sub box to where the Jack used to go? Is it just sitting on the floor and buckled in at the top? That's what it looks like from what I can see.

I'm thinking of doing a similar setup in my truck.

To sit it in there i had to cut out where the jack would go...I cut a bit too high, so if you do it, and have the same box size, you don't need to cut higher than the lip. As for holding it in we strapped it in using a fanny pack strap, those fanny packs are useless anyway so we put the strap to good use lol.

In behind the panels the is actually a piece of metal that sticks out from the frame so with a self tapping screw you can attach the strap into the panel. You'll have to do the measurements before putting the panels on and then drill with the panels on. I then drilled the other half into the sub. It works perfect because I left the buckle so i can take out the sub if I need the space..

I did the same for the both amps ( the second I have added since the pictures). I had to add the straps because the amps where too heavy and would slam the seat down. The weight does put some stress on the panels so keep an eye and if it starts to come loose pop it back in.

Sounds great, I added some decent speakers too now and I am pretty sure I am going deaf.
