I just heard my friend's new Merc GLE 23 speaker Burmester ! Amazingly awesome !
More sub action:
Find and mark the subs location on the baffle:
Carboard template to confirm shape:
Fitment check. Spare tire clearance looks good:
The sub amp is bigger than what I had planned. The fit with amp rack is close but no interference. I will leave things be for now. I have physically smaller amp options available if needed. This would shrink the amp rack to a manageable size.
Tomorrow I mount the sub and check it out.
Strange. I can on phone and computer(s)Can't see the photos here...
First off great thread! I’m actually In the process of installing 3 way focal access and 2 way access component speakers with a 10” punch 3 sub in the back. I had a question though. I was going to get the Helix V twelve w/ DSP to have it all in one amp to power everything. Is that separate adapter msd25 necessary for my car with a base system?So I got more stuff in today:

This gear will replace both Bose amps and allow me to tune my vehicle to my preference. No more simple Bass and Treble controls. The 8 channel amp contains a 10 channel DSP. It has as much processing power as the laptop I am using to type this message.
First up is the MOST25 adapter. Porsche sends all audio data to the amps via fiber optic cable. This little box decodes the MOST25 signal and will send audio data to my main DSP amp via TOSLINK fiber optic cable. It also provides remote turn on/off for the external amps.

Then of course here is the DSP amplifier. Each speaker in the system (front tweets, front midrange, front midbass, center channel, and rear fill) will get a dedicated amp channel with its own crossover, EQ, and time alignment. Amp is rated for 75W per channel into 4 ohms or 120W per channel into 2 ohms x 8 channels. This thing is a little pricey but it is a masterpiece.

Then of course there is this beast. It will deliver 650W into a single 2 ohm subwoofer or 900W into two subwoofers. Mind you this is overkill. But, my dealer gave me a hard to pass up bargain on it. The sub amp will get signal from the main amp via RCA cable.

I find this interesting. I am going to create a 9 channel audio system with only needing to run one short RCA. 10 years ago I would have RCA cables run everywhere.
Correct. I'm going to try it without a box for now. This will maximize low frequency extension. I can always make an enclosure out of fiberglass under the baffle if I need it in the future. But, this would reduce low frequency extension. There is a trade-off seeing how there is not a lot of room under the floor.Is that an infinite baffle sub? So you don’t need a box? It looks like you are just installing it in a panel from the photos (I don’t see a box).

You do not need a MOST25 or MOST150 adapter with the base system. That only applies to vehicles with the BOSE or Burmester systems. You can get by with using high level speaker inputs on the V Twelve.First off great thread!
