Rebuilding my whole vehicle (Audio system that is)

Gear

Amps
BC2000
BC1100.4

Subs
Two SSA Audio 15"icons

Mids
X65 mids

Highs
4 Vifa Softdome Tweeters

Ive already done deadner through most of the vehicle and will probably add some to the florr and rear wall once the subs go in.

I will have everything but the second sub in a few weeks. As for now ill be working on glassing in the tweeters to the A-Pillars.

I like that box. Where are the amps going to be? If you can put a raised section on the box that you can mount the amps on and hide the wires underneath that would be nice. Or maybe on the rear doors?

are the 4 tweets going in the pillars and why did you choose to point them different directions?

Yeah the pillars, One on each side is pointed at the rears pillars and the other are pointed at opposite window. As to why I did this? Not a 100% positive lol.

he did it so he can switch between the two and see which one he likes more for a soundstage, then run both for more sheer output.

Have another battery coming to replace my yellowtop and more terminals like in the picture above.

Well my C1100.4 had two bad channels, was told by SSA its a warranty issue. Which is pretty BS considering it is brand new and they sold it, generally places take something DOA back and send out a new one. Im stuck waiting for a response from Crescendo for warranty. Currently have my ID Q450.4 hooked up and am really happy with the quality from the Vifas in the A pillars.

Waiting on second SSA Icon to be finished so I can finish off this build and save a bit for a 80Prs.

Oh yeah got the D3400 in also, waiting on Tool maker terminals for it currently. **** Holidays.
