Do you know the distance between the waterfall cover and the factory monsoon sub box? Let's say I want the sub to be flush with the waterfall cover, will a single 3/4 ring do it, or would I have to stack two of them? I know it doesn't get seen very often, but I would like to cut out the factory grill, install it flush, and then place the sub's "trim ring" on top to make it look like a good custom installation.

I've got a factory monsoon box that I'm going to cut to fit a 10" and use mounting rings on top with a Rockford Fosgate P3SD2-10.

Sorry, just saw this, and saw your other thread, so looks like you are done. My modified box was brought flush with the face of the box with 1/8" spacer. then I pulled the factory grill (popped the heat stakes loose and it came off clean, could go back if I wanted). I used neoprene stick-on gasket so that the waterfall could pull tight to the box, then a 3/4" spacer to fill the triangle speaker grill opening, and covered that with black vinyl. The JBL10" sub barely fits, with many of the ribs inside of the monsoon box cut out. I'll try to remember to get some pics up for folks who run across this in the future.

On a 105 degree day in Texas with some 80's rock cranked a bit too loud, I manage to get a thermal shut down after about 30 minutes on my trunk mounted amp. Not sure if I can solve that, but it seems OK below 100 degrees....

I have never heard a Monsoon system, so I can't compare the two, but I like it. Installed a set of CS Kicker 6 3/4 in the doors, (plug and play), a set of CS Kicker 3 1/2 in the side panels behind the door, (I think, might remember the size wrong, but still plug and play with new wire connecters), a pair of base blockers on the 3 1/2s, and the Kicker Hide-a-way sub. Mounted the sub remote in the storage between the seats. I am very happy with the results.

Notice it does bulge the cover a bit, but not really noticeable unless you look for it.







Thanks again to everyone for the help and thoughts.

Mack

Hey Mack did you add an amp for the door speakers? Also, how happy are you with the setup?
