4 guage power wire. 80A fuse. Seriously big. The amp above it requires even bigger power/fuse ratings. The RMS on this one is 674W x1 @ 2ohms.

So when you replace your alternator, lemme know where you get it, cause that's a huuuuuuge amp man. I bet that it is louder than anyone needs. Nice.

You could easily make an addtion to your new rack that has a plexi front that would better show off your distribution block and voltage meter.

To get around the uneven floor, you need to build a lip on the front. 2" by 3/4". This aligns everything nicely. Generally, the weight of the box is enough to keep it from moving around. If you want to be extra cautious, you can add feet to it and screw ir down.

That is a seriously nice install, and that amp is *cue corny scotish accent* FRIGGIN' HUGE!! That thing must just pound. Noticed you were also giving out advice on building sub boxes... well I've got a question on that if ya don't mind...

For a couple years I've had the huge box in the back of my cars and now I'd like to put something in that doesn't take that huge amount of space but still looks good. I've got a set of two nice 10's it'd be nice to use both but I could use just one if I could get it to pound hard enough. I've seen the JL Stealth boxes but I'm not sure if they make them for my car (94 325i) and even if they did they look kinda cheesy. Any brilliant ideas on how to hide two amps and some subs in the car?

Thanks.

how big are your amps? You could build something like the box above that would enclose the subs in the above style, and since you have 10s the loss of cu/ft wouldn't hurt too much. Underneath them though, have the amps flat.
