Hey All!

I just got around to getting the pictures off my digital camera of my new system and thought I would share it!

For anyone in washington state the guys at G&R Autosports of Bellingham are incredible at systems!

The system specs are in my sig.
I also ran a distrubtion block, and a master fuse of course. Main power is delievered via 0 gauge wire and distrubited via 4 gauge. The subs use 8 guage speaker wire. The entire thing pounds the only problem is I have been chasing rattles lately. I need to fix the liscense plate first off!






Amps at night. I also replaced the trunk light with a blue light cant really see it, but eh it works.

very nice. I thought about incorporating a similar amp design style with my current box, but I decided to mount it flush and hide the satellite tuner behind it.

Out of curiosity is it really worth ripping the back seats out and removing the sound dampening material? I have them turned way down so I don't rattle my car apart, and just ride with the back seat down.

Also your DIY didn't explain, do the back seats come apart once they are out?

not really. I have about twice the amount of bass on tap than I need for my tastes. Perhaps a different amp is order? Whats the THD rating on them, and are they 500W max or peak?

Also, I have fixed rear seats. The fold downs are different and I don't have any first hand experience with them. It's possible you don't have any in there.

One thing you can do to increase the sound is turn the subs around so they fire away from you, letting the bass grow and reverberate inside the the trunk.

Looks awesome. Great components, great install.

I love the new prefab boxes PolkMomo is using, and Zapco has rocked for a looong time! Nice Job.
