I will look for old pix, but imagine if you will...

2x10" subs in a sub box built behind the back seat
4x4.25" mid ranges in the rear side walls (2 per side)
2x5" mid bases in the rear side walls (1 per side)
2 tweets in the rear side walls (1 per side)
2 tweets in the doors (1 per side)
2 tweets in the air conditioning vents (1 per side)
2 6.25" 3 way's in the stock front kick panels
3 amps in the sub box in back
6 disk changer on passenger side of tranny tunnel w/ cover
Kenwood head unit that covered itself when turned off

With the exception of the head unit, almost everything was hidden (accustic carpeting). The tweets in the air ducts could be seen if you knew what to look for. This was the reason I Added my 2nd battery under the hood.

Unfortunately, I started wheeling the rig hard about 10 years ago and all of the equipment was trashed, drowned or removed and replaced with more hard core wheeling essentials like air compressors, air tank, lines, etc...

But it is possible even with a full back seat. That was 16 speakers plus amps. people hated me at the stop lights...

wow... finding pix from back then was harder than I thought.
Here is a shot of a door tweet and it shows the trick door jam connection I used so I could remove the door without disconnecting the wires.

Talking Audio System Layout

I 'm using a Creative Zen (2 G Mp3 player hooked up to 2 active speakers and 1 active sub woofer.

- 2 x Active Speakers affixed under the roof right behind the windshield
- 1 x Active Sub Woofer under the Front Passenger Seat
- On/Off Switch for the speakers affixed on the Dashboard

The sound is "ok", I mean you can't compare it with any top of the shelf setup. But at least I can still enjoy the tunes driving with the windows down both on and off the road and carry whatever full load or 4 passengers as I need in the back. Power consumption wise is not that heavy a load so I'm still running off a 40AMP Alternator with 45Ah Maintenance Free Battery.

Cost wise is pretty economic I'd say.

2x Active Speakers = USD 30 x 2 = USD 60
1x Active Sub-Woofer = USD 180
Audio Cables, 3-way Audio Jack Adaptor and a On/Off Switch from any electronics shop at around USD 15
Creative MP3 Player (Bought it 2 years ago when first released) = USD 60

All in, USD 375.00 (Compared to USD 1,000 for a Basic Boom Box Setup with Head Unit in most audio shops around here in Jakarta)

Talking Follow up to "Audio System Layout"

Under the Hood Layout

Hi All,

Due to limited space in our beloved Jimny. Wonder if anyone would like to share about their "how to" in terms of saving space.

Here's what I did to mine. I believe we all carry some form of tools around irregardless for daily use or having some quality time off road. I find it a hassle having to go back and forth between the engine compartment and the back door just to grab a tool or two to do some tweaking and/or emergency works. Not to mention the limited space (especially if you have it filled with audio equipment)

Well, I guess the photos would kinda explains itself. Note, I had to throw out the stock Air Intake Filter and had it replaced.

Yes, it's just a thin piece of rubber mat, in case if the battery terminals get in contact with the hood.
