Thanks man, I'll post some more up, we ran it from front to back and tacked it down every 8" per MECA rules, the wiring install took about 18 hours.

****. I need to clean my ish up. Looks good, man. What 5k are you going to run?

Also, I've seen that DieHard Platinum used a few times here lately. How are they?

Haha, thanks man, it definitely adds some time but is well worth it to techflex and heat shrink everything. Right now the plan is 2 Shok 2.5k's and a Shok 100x4, we've got 2 75lb deep cycle batt's in the back too.

He actually was running a IA 20.1 at 2 ohms on that one battery and a big 3 upgrade and he was constantly at 14.5 volts resting and high 12's at full tilt, actually a nice battery, might consider one myself.

Die hard platinum has done me well. Also have Deka's in the back.

Looks great, wish I had the patience for that kind of wiring job. My stuff always looks like a plate of spaghetti.

Z is a terriffic sub. You'll be very happy I'm sure. Where do you get the signature dustcaps?

Box fit perfectly and sounded incredible, these things are only getting about 600rms each until we get the bigger amps in.

sweetness. nice install bro

everything looks good. the only comment i'll make for the benefit of everyone viewing this is in regards to strain relief.

the intent of MECA rules for securing wire is to hold it in place to prevent damage if the wire moves somewhere else and you try driving a screw there, and also to provide strain relief. the first 8" is the most important [that's what she said] and every 8" when the wire is in the engine bay or trunk is crucial.

in short, strain relief should take all stress and strain off the actual connection. the wires should be supported independently of the ring terminal connection. i don't see strain relief in this build, it looks as if all of those connections are supporting the cable. one way to test is to disconnect the nut holding the ring terminal - if it doesn't move, you're good. if it moves a lot, it's a failure point. you would know this when you make the connection. the weight of the cable should be supported independently of the terminal.

good use of techflex and heat shrink. everything else looks good. sweet amps and subs.

Yeah it's running at 2 ohms, it's actually sold now, he has 2 Shok II's coming in early this next week.

That's a lot o port! :D Nice install. Those Zs are S3XY beasts!
Hell yeah haha, thanks bro. Those things have sold a few more people on them, got a guy ordering 4 Z v.3 18's next week.

Hey thanks man, I like the looks of the wire too, the Techflex looks great but I like the looks of the wire at the same time.

Man I can't thank you enough for that information, I completely get what you're saying and that totally makes sense. When we build his amp rack I'll be sure to make those adjustments accordingly. Thanks for the compliment too :D.
