I am posting this for Tony(Kodak314) who we began the installation and sub build last night. I helped and took the pics

The system will consist of:

Car: 2003 Chevey Impala
Amp: Sundown 1500d
Sub: hdc315(copper)
Electrical: Big3(coming soon), 1 run of 1/0 and 1 run of 4 gauge, Back Deka Intimidator
Mids/High: PG RSds
Mids/High Amp: Undecided
Enclosure: 3.5 cu ft tuned to 38

Hopefully this is in the right place, bc the build has not been completely done....

going thru the firewall..... it was a b!tch to get thru so I posted pics of it:)

the wiring and mids/high amp is temporary until everything gets done, and he gets another mids/high amp.

and thanks for the comments....I can wait to hear the new hdc315 on that sundown...i think its gonna be a perfect fit

You just dont want any water or anything sneaking in from the firewall. Could be hazardous to any wiring in the dash and to your carpet lol. Might be something to consider.

lookin great man. just a lil advice. i'm not sure how you guys here feel about it, but i would put a lock washer under that ground wire. i always have problems with them vibrating loose and since i started using the lock washers i havenj't had that problem.

just my two cents. please don't take it the wrong way.

Does it not look really uneven and wavy, especially on the left side where it appears to come to a point?

Nice choice of equipment and install looks solid.

Only thing I'd be concerned about is it "looks" like you went outside the firewall grommet with the power wires. If so they'll rub againgst the edge of the sheetmetal which could lead to sparks. At the very least wrap a decent layer of electrical tape around the wires just to be safe...

he is from Lou but goes to school at A&T here in greensboro

I think the wire was on the inside of the gromet, I thik the gromet at the time just wasn't sealed all the way @ the hole.....

his sub is in so we will have that put in, pics, vids, and everything rechecked

That box looks like its blocking the airflow? Try moving it forward 2-3 inches. It may still "seem" loud but it could move a bit more air at minimum

yea I'm sure he will be able to try some new things with it....we just got done and took a couple of vids..... and besides the one with White Girls, we prolly picked 2 songs that didnt wang as much as the rest

04-18-2008, 12:37 AM
I will say that the Sundown is one efficient amp.....no electrical upgrades, and just a batt under the hood, and we had no drop below 13.8v when playing
