as of now that is the finished project minus a tweeter change and some tuning. it has been a great chance to learn some things good and bad. i cant explain how much help kha was to me. it would not have been done without him. hearing his car gave me a better appreciation for what sq really is. he inspired me to step this up a bit.

so please feel free to comment or leave me questions guys. ill be around to answer them.
thank you

i forgot you posted this.



a few of the photos i took:
http://i38.photobucket.com/albums/e128/phat_funky_beats/IMG_20130626_225652_362.jpg

http://i38.photobucket.com/albums/e128/phat_funky_beats/IMG_20130626_225719_739.jpg

we used some rubber mounts (about 1/4" thick each) to gain space behind the amp rack and also absorb vibrations.

what this is:
http://i1055.photobucket.com/albums/s510/KiKaZz74/2013-06-26193028_zpsde39fca5.jpg

we wanted to essentially tap the 1/0 power for the sub amp to feed the 6-channel. so this is a dual 1/0 connector with a short section of wire to a fuse holder to feed the G6600. once it was secure, i wrapped it with self-fusing silicone tape (rated to 1000V per layer).

http://i38.photobucket.com/albums/e128/phat_funky_beats/IMG_20130626_225752_803.jpg

there are front and rear coaxial drivers. but some more highs were needed since those speakers are muffled due to location. i put in some tweeter spheres for the short term, and have them running through the passive crossovers shown below. eventually, a decent active crossover would let us just run active and defeat the tweets in the doors.
