System...
H/U: Pioneer 6900, using USB cord
Components: Atomic Quantum 6.5
Component Amp: SS PCA 2.260
Rear Fill: Atomic Manhattan 6.5 coaxials.
Sub amplifier: Atomic 5000.1d
Subwoofer(s) : 2 Atomic APX 10s, dual 1.5vc. Will be doing tests on single 10 and two 10s with termlab.
Electrical: Exide Orbital Dry cell under hood for daily with two Stinger sp 1700s in the rear.
Power cable: 6 runs of 1/0 from front to back, 3+ and 3 - . All 1/0 is Kicker Hyperflex.

Sound Deadening: 110 sq ft of Dynamat Xtreme



my next day off to finish the install will be monday. so far i have my component amp mounted with all wires ran up front to the crossovers, but no components in the doors yet. i have the rear speakers install, and the 6 runs of 1/0 ran from front to back. I ran new wires from the headunit for the rear speakers, and uninstalled the factory infinity amplifier. i have been keeping my wires clean and wraping in electrical tape as you can see in the pics. also, pics for the trunk have not been taking yet. Will take those monday when i finish...

was finally able to get more time to work on the car. doors are deadened and components are in finally... since the tweeters are big, they had to be installed directly into the existing tweeter pods. the existing tweeter cover was removed and tweeters were placed in a flush fit. this was done by a previous member of Team Soundstream, Maxxsonics, and Tsunami, named Joe who is the install supervisor at the CC I install at. he did a very good job and they came out perfect. will get pics of them tomorrow.

alright i decided to do tests with a single 10 and then tests with two 10s. Box for solo 10 was completed today. im getting flex so i will be putting on a double baffle tomorrow and also will add bracing. i will also be utting an extra peice of wood on the back for the monoblock to be screwed to.

This makes me wish I would have tried a sound system in my 02 Eclispe GTS when I had it.

Well I kinda swapped out my system to that for a week, but wasn't much at the time. Couple type R's off 1200rms and it got loud, but never did a complete install with it.

i added the second baffle and the back mounting board to the box for the amp to mount to. sounds really good and hope to get numbers this coming week for the single 10 setup!!!!

Your welcome, but im too picky and not really liking the tweeter mount. It looks kinda unfinished for my taste.

does adding all that 0awg from the main battery and alt really help that much?
I would think most of the power would be coming from the rear batteries.. I would think a max of 2x0awg of both pos and neg to keep it charged up.

Just wondering cuz i have some extra laying around and i want to know if its worth running it or using it else where.

It definitely helps. Doing 3 second burps, I saw my voltage stay another .5-.6V higher because of the Big 3. And that was swithcing from 4gauge to 0gauge.

The I put a HC2000 up front and it stayed another .4V higher during the same burps. Put the Batcap2000 in the rear, and another .3V. Made some buss bars for the Kinetik up front, and gained another .2-.3V on the dmm.

I went from dropping down to 11.3-4V, to Never going below 12.8V.
