intrepids and concourse's did as well for several years. It's right in front of the front passenger tire. I had a 99 Intrepid and it was like this, unfortunately I had the dreaded 2.7L as well.

6-4 All of the components in the sound system (with the exception of an external podium or source unit) must be located within the external OEM "skin" of the vehicle. (This includes, but is not limited to alternators, batteries, power cables, amplifiers, enclosures, and speakers.)

4-4 The dBDRA defines the "skin" of the vehicle as the external shell (top, front, back, and sides) of the vehicle's OEM body that gives the vehicle its distinctive appearance. This is also the part of the vehicle that is normally painted. The underside or undercarriage of the vehicle is not considered to be a part of the OEM "skin".

wasn't the decision made that power cables could be run under the car, as long as they were within the lowest point of the sides of the car?

but what is "underneath the vehicle"?
Quote 0 0
AmmoJammo
adjective
lower; situated below or under.

noun
the bottom; underside; lowest part.

the battery location I have in mind doesn't put it "below" the vehicle, or "under" nor is it the "lowest part"

its OUTSIDE the car, but that doesn't mean its "underneath"

so I can put it on the back seat?

the rules don't specify that it has to be "inside" though, they specify it can't be "underneath"

- The primary battery must be located in the same general area as the OEM battery location. (For example, if the OEM battery location is under the hood, the primary battery must be located under the hood as well. Aftermarket battery trays and/or custom fabricated battery brackets may be installed provided no other applicable rules are violated.)

- The secondary battery (if installed) may be mounted behind the B-Pillars or under the hood provided no other applicable rules are violated.

So, not on the backseat, cause in street classes it is not allowed to mount audiosystem equipment on the backseat..

it doesn't say that. it says the box has to be behind the rear seat, than the amplifier also has to be, or under the front seat, and that the battery has to be behind the B pillar, so the battery can be on the back seat.

no, the NORMAL USE of the car must be in Street classes... So if is there a Battery on the Backseat, u cant sit there, so the normal use isnt given anymore.

3-2         No partitions or other barriers may divide or compartmentalize the passenger compartment. (Intent: The listening environment should approximate that found in a typical vehicle.)


3-10b
Nothing in the sound system may interfere with the normal use and / or operation of the vehicle.

"normal"
conforming to the standard or the common type

"use"
the act of employing, using, or putting into service

"vehicle"
any means in or by which someone travels or something is carried or conveyed; a means of conveyance or transport

so are you suggesting that the vehicle must still meet the standard as being employed as a means of transport?

a battery on the back seat doesn't interfere with this.
