This is more so my first real build. It's in an 01 Impala. It took a couple weeks between getting the equipment and everything build, but I think it turned out nice. Was my first time making my own box, and carpeting it as well. Box is 2cubes before sub displacement, tuned to around 32hz. False floor was put in so I wouldn't have to drill the amp rack or the sub box to the frame. The sub does seem to get low, but I am going to do some testing this week and see what the impedance rise is, etc. Also need to do the big 3, just received the wire and terminals to finally do it. Need to still order new RCAs from KNU. The RSDs keep up nicely with the DC I must say. So, the everything in the car now is-
12" DC LVL 4
Sundown SAE1200D
PPI PC2100
PG RSD6s
Alpine 9886

A little more of the wire mess, and the box screwed down to the false floor.

Yuup, too much glue, but it was sanded and taken care of. And I have friends who get bored and write on stuff. It was getting carpeted, so didn't matter either way.

I think when I experiment with some different box building this weekend, I'll be bracing them. Just didn't do it on this one, and I am kicking myself in the *** for it.
