Daytona-Dave has my old car (which sadly suffered an engine failure) so I expect he might be able to help with some pics. See this thread: https://www.s2ki.com/forums/uk-irela...egend-1162841/

I've not let fester loose on my new car (yet!) but on the old car it certainly resolved the rattling tray.

Haha you know i love leaving my blood in owners cars

I think i'm running C.300RMS to the front mids and tweeters and about 700RMS to the 10" kicker in the boot - in a small car, it is more than enough volume.

Wow that second thread is serious! I’ve stolen this picture from it though which shows a similar plan to what I was thinking with cutting holes, maybe a bit more extreme than I was planning though! I think covering in soeaker grille cloth should make it look fine and let a lot of air through - conveniently I have some in the garage!

Going to Studio In Car to get the BitOne tuned on Saturday, I think I’ll remove the tray completely for that and then do the hole cutting later. Will let you know how the tune goes!


Im running similar power levels to you I think unclefester, 75RMS to the tweeters, 100RMS to the woofers and 600RMS to the sub. Should be plenty!

That's near enough what i've done to mine and Simons old shelf but far smaller holes - you do need SOME strength retained in the shelf. Two rows of holes, each about 3" square - reinforced with dynamat and then covered in acoustic carpet.

:thumb: Sounds like a good plan, I'll get that done next time I have a weekend to spare!

I must agree - I expect that volume of material removed would make no difference if you halved the quantity (to sound quality), yet it would make the panel flimsy and I'd want a replacement made out of metal.

Far better would be to take the approach of a regular speaker grille and add many smaller holes in a pattern.
