Hi!

I’m doing a PG build on my 2003 Jetta.


Eclipse cd7200
2 m44
1 zx500
Morel elate 603 3 way set
1 hertz Mille 10 inch woofer.

Ok so to start I don’t understand how to run that eclipse head unit active. I planned on doing this build passive. Open to suggestions/assistance. I understand benefits both ways.

I’m planning on running the m44 amps to run the front set. Are these specs achievable?

4 x 110W @ 2 ohms (13.8V) (Mid and tweeters)
2 x 160W @ 4 ohms bridged (13.8V) (Mid bass)

If so, please help me understand how to set up the amps. I have a set of fans for the 2ohm amp if I need them. Also where should I mount them?

I’m going to run the mille hertz with the zx500 I think lol. I also have a morel 9” woofer I was thinking of mounting up front with a zx250 thoughts?

What power concerns should I consider for this build? I’m doing a big 3 and I have 2 large PG External capacitors Where in the system should I place those. In other words, near the battery or near the amps?

Thanks for any suggestions on This build

Hello Todd

If you go active I would do it the same like you suggested, except tweets and mid will be 4 Ohm operation.
Don't think that adding the 9 inch sub will give better sound.
Caps as close a possible to the amps.

If you use the Morel filters you can use them with the tweets and mids running them with one M44 in bridged mode, this will give you more power of the M44.

Give the M44 amps good ventilation, in 2 Ohm mode they get hot (use direct forced cooling)

so you want the 44 to run the mid/high up front, the 250 to run the 9s and the 500 for your woofer? Sounds reasonable.
