Heya all,

Thought I'd throw this out to you guys and see if there's any clues out there. I'm relocating my amp from behind my passenger seat to the trunk (also to add another amp, most likely a JLAud 500/1). When I took off the interior trim covering the forward part of the trunk, I noticed these three threaded holes - I have no idea what they're for.





The strange thing is that it doesn't look like it's used for anything (at least in the 11 years we've owned the car) - but from the paint scrapes - they were used for something?

Good news is that the mounting board for the amps will attach to the forward part of the trunk easily with those holes there.

Any ideas?

the bins are in the passenger compartment; not the trunk :sadface:

My theory is that they are using in trans-top equipped Sol's.... but thats just a theory....

I used the holes to mount my amp rack as well; works very well :TU: (i'll post pics later if i find/take some...)

Please do get some pics up. REP for ya. :TU: Great place for an amp rack, just working the clearance issues when the roof is stored in the trunk.

I'm also thinking it's for the initial manufacture or a different version of the Sol, not to be used again. But I'm going to be tasking it here shortly...

Well, as long as i get rep...lol
heres the pics of my amp rack... it turned out pretty good (considering we just used wood, and didn't bother to fit the carpet back over it...) My trunk looked really clean w/ the subs (2 10" type-e's) the amps were completely hidden and everything fit in PERFECT...

BTW: i know the mono amp isn't wired up, lol. Anybody need a 350RMS amp? (i already sold my subs...)

Almost done - finally got that Boston from behind the seat and into the trunk. Here's how it looks so far:



Those three holes are perfect for mounting the board for the amps to attach to. No drilling required, which is good. I'm going to use those metal attachment points where the trunk trim hooks onto to mount a trim piece for the amps - to cover the wiring and keep stuff from hitting it.

As for the 500/1 - the amp does rock!!! :TU: A bit expensive, but this thing controls woofers with a vise-like grip, and refuses to run out of steam. One of the best things I like about it is the crossover networks - the pots have detents so you can perfectly set what freq you want. The Boston sounds smooth, but those pots are marked with logarithmic freq scales :hammer: , so I can't tell exactly what freq I've set them at without getting a freq analyzer on it (don't have one yet).

I'll probably take a break from this and put in the Blox LCA's and sways this weekend.

Yep - plywood, automotive carpet, some spray adhesive, and some uphosltery nails.

Did the same thing mounting a couple of 12" Kicker Free-Airs in the trunk of my 1988 Sentra when I was in college.

...now if I can only get time to do that trim piece to cover the wires before the end of the year. :hammer:
