MG MGF Technical - Subs in an F
|I think I have finally lost the plot.|
Started with an 8" sub in the glove box, worked quite well, but shook the dash so much the CD would jump. Fixed this with a boot cd changer.
Then came the 12" sub in the boot. Sounded very very good when stationary, but 30mph and above was a waste of time.
Moved this to infront (or behind depending on your perception) of the spare wheel. Very happy at all speeds, but the bass was a bit flappy.
Then about a week ago it dawned on me that I was carrying a spare that I could not use on the fronts due to AP callipers, so this was dumped and I now have two 10" subs in it's place. Sounds awesome. :-) :-)
But really I think I have lost it, perhaps the sub has liquefied what was left of my brain cells ;-)
Just thought I would share...
|So the spare wheel is now in the glove box, right ?|
Any pics online, as this is quite unique setup.
|So it's a road going F vibration test rig? Inspect all seams for metal fatigue:-)??|

Not sure how long it will last ;-)
I've got pics, but nowhere to host them. Anyone able to help?
Also got a unique (I think) starter button, instead of one of the horn buttons, if anyone is interested :-)
|Drop me an email Richard... |
See Dominic's sub installation! http://www.mgf.ultimatemg.com/group2/DIY/ICE/recommended_ice_installations.htm
I saw Dominic's before. Really the best place for it, or in the footwell but too much on show for my liking. (Not aesthetics, but security wise-living in Essex ;-) ) I like all my stereo stuff hidden.
Have emailed you, hope I still have the right address, pictures not too good my camera is at home.
|Pictures on line.|
What's the red horn button for Richard?
|Engine start. Picture is terrible, will get a better one tommorow. Has the word Start! on it :-)|
Nice touch Richard.
How did you get the switch out of the steering wheel?
|It's pushed in. Two small flat scredrivers to lever it out. Then there are two wires connected to it.|
|Easy to damage the button/ steering wheel when using the screw drivers Richard?|
|I didn't. They really are quite easy to pull out. I've had four switches in and out on two wheels, and had no problems. When I said a small screwdriver, maybe two flat pieces of metal would be better.|
|Yup Richard, you have lost the plot, but what a way to go!|
Also, an interesting way of getting a bit more weight over 'light' front end.
Good work, Russ.

It also goes faster, I placed the speakers pointing backwards to add some push.....
