    Kingstroker has a great idea!
    wash the car very hard with a scotch brite and distilled viniger. (sands it and kills rust) wash again with a new scotch brite and water. let dry, tape up, wipe down with wax and greese remover and clear it with about 1/2 flattining agent in the clear and your done.
    But dont wet sand any trash or buff anywhere. It brings out the shine.
    And that is why "HotRod" black paint jobs cost so much. They have to be sprayed perfect.

    Thunder39208 got a reaction from Cablguy184 in Does The 5002(Non-Iq) Have Internal Protection?   
    The "IQ" in Linear Power model numbers means:
    "I" Inverted channel, one internal channel is inverted so the amp can perform stereo, or bridged or mixed mono, by just how you hook up the speaker wires.. Older models needed either the internal bridge switch flipped or the use of an "XO2" to make the amp "Bridged."
    "Q" Quiet turn on circuit.

    PROTECTION:
    Our stable amplifier design is made virtually indestructible by two protection circuits. One is a precision thermal protection circuit, which prevents
    damage from high frequency oscillation, or an excessive ambient temperature. The second protection circuit is a current sensing device guarding against
    instantaneous abnormalities, such as short circuits. Both circuits are automatically resetting. A turn-on delay has been added to prevent speaker
    damage from turn-on transients.
    Please remember that the 2502IQ(1995 first made) was about a 2 generation step newer than the origional 5002's which came out in 1986.
    the 5002/5002iq is rated at 250 x2 RMS @ 0.12% THD 20hz-20Khz, 565 watts bridged and 1100 watts peak.
    Where as the 2502IQ is rated at 125w x2 RMS @ 0.06% THD 20hz-20Khz, 600watts bridged and 1400watts peak.
    I can understand the confusion. But having owned both of these amps I can tell you the 5002 is UNDERRATED!
    The 5002 has an extra set of outputs above the 2502's, and runs at a higher internal voltage. So yea it makes more power the 565Watts bridged.
    BUT BUT BUT!!
    This information was printed in the origional lit. I do not know the testing conditions that were used to get those numbers, But I will ask Ray @ Linear Power to chime in and try to make sense of this.

    If I were building the box I would build it like this. 44" wide, 24" deep, 20" tall, with a double thick top (still keeping 20" tall) with a port or 18.5" wide by 4" tall and 16"long, made of 3/4" material.
    Make sure you keep the port at least 4" away from the rear wall.
    This should "Beat the Block Down!!"
    Hope this helps

    Welcome,,, Please don't run away when you read this
    I have to go with Pro-Rabbit and Cableguy184 on this one.
    I know what you are thinking, Mississippi,,,,, not exactly the fiberglass install capital of audio..
    We do our share...
    Please don't get me wrong. I don't know your skill level or back ground, so forgive me if I sound like a teacher...
    So here goes....
    To get what you see in the movies, did take a shop of really BAD "A" installers MONTHS to do.
    Small actuators, $75.00-$150.00 each
    Remote 12channel controller $125.00-$175.00
    Fiberglass $85.00 or better a gallon for "ok" resin. (get a few they go quick)
    MDF $20.00 to $45.00 sheet.
    Bondo $45-$65 gallon (hatchback cover will need 2x easy)
    Paint. $350.00 - UP- Way UP!!
    Masking tape. (GET A CASE!!)
    I could really go on.......
    Now the labor.
    Making perfect inlays, THEN hinge them (ouch) Now hide the motors, inside the enclosure or make a hidden pocket? Motor wires?
    glass it, sand it, reinforce it, from the inside if you can or sand it (itch for days) bondo it, sand it, prime it, sand it, prime it, sand it again. paint it, sand it, clear it again, sand it, now buff it out.
    now hope it still fits the car. Because it takes 30 days for the chemical reaction in polyester resin to complete. IE, it will warp if you take it out of the car to quick, or if you introduce more heat to fast or add to may layers of glass to one layer.
    Scared yet??
    For me If anyone comes to me and wants ANYTHING painted fiberglass, I start at $1500.00 and go up. As you can see from above the materials alone will eat you alive.
    Sorry for the rant. I just really want you to understand what is under all that pretty...
    If you want to tackle this project knowing the above, we will GLADLY offer advice and pointers. Or we can point you to one of the before mentioned "Bad A" installers.
    Again Welcome to the forum. (Hope I have not scared you off)

    Eric decided to change the grill, So here is what I came up with.
    Hope you like it.

    Wrapped grill insert before the mesh

    All done, mesh dyed to match the material, and Chrome V8 installed.
    Now he can go to the Street Rod Nationals.
