Hertz, ArcAudio and AudioFrog

Now that PAC Audio released their harness for the WK2, I got that and the TOSLINK adapter. Jeep is in the shop getting a new $7k+ audio system with a custom amp/dsp box and custom subwoofer box. All while keeping my spare tire and not taking up any room in the trunk . Will be hopefully done this week. But for now, just going to leave this here.

Sweet. Where did you buy the Pac Audio from? I've only seen the over priced eBay ones and ABT selling them.

Looks good. I am all for car audio so will be interested to see some pics when it is done. Will sound brilliant either way. I am very interested how they are going to get the sub in there without losing truck space or spare wheel. Be very tight to put it where the OEM sub is. Not sure of air space that can be created there and no doubt a fiberglass box. You will be happy and also shocked how much nicer it will sound compared to OEM

Well I was hoping to get at least 1 cubic foot from the stock location, but my installer just sent me a pic and said he could only get it to .75. That's the min recommended size for this sub, so I'm a little disappointed and trying to figure out something to make it bigger. I told him to extend the subwoofer out a little bit and angled up, should give me a little more room, and I can put in some polyfill to help as well. This is the photo of the bare wood, he still needs to fiberglass.

But I'm also wondering if he added the subwoofer displacement, otherwise it's going to be under the min spec. I told him I was wanting something like this, with this angle. So hopefully he can figure something out otherwise it looks like I'm going to have to ditch the spare.

Looks neat though. Don't jump the gun yet. It is built now so just see how you like it. You may be happy. Load some polyfill in for sure. If he has not taken sub displacement in then you could be way under. I have a pair of sundown 12's in my trunk in a fairly large box and they pound like crazy. With your other speakers going in you could very well end up ditching the spare and ending up with 2 of those subs. Your door speakers will be loud and chances are they could drown your sub So you can either turn then down to balance or load up on subs. It is the never ending game

If I don't like the way it sounds there, I'm just going to ditch the spare tire and put the sub there. Probably won't get another sub tho. Haha
