Heres the layout:

AMPS:
-SS Rubicon 1.2500D
-PPI BK 800.4
-PPI BK 340.4
-PPI BK 210.2
Electrical:
- 280 amp WSP altenator
- Dual XS Power D4700
- 2/0 excelelene cable for power/ground
Speakers:
- Tweeters: still up in air have some to try though
- Mids: FR88EX
- Midbass: SLS 8
- Subs: Two FI Q12 D1's
- Rear: None

I am still gathering pieces but should have the altenator this week and installed this weekend. It will be a slow but fruitful build as it will be my first time in this wattage range, and my first time with the SLS 8 as a midbass.

Some pics of the equipment:

I've never seen cables run under the car before but I mean I guess that does work, and that way no pinching of the wires, looks like a nice build in the making

Nice equipment choices. Should sound pretty good and get fairly loud.

Off topic but how did you like the PPI speakers in your sig? I've been looking at them for a long time, and they seem good, just haven't heard many reviews.

I love the PPI mid and tweet. The tweets are typical metal domes, very accurate, a lil harsh on some recordings but overall some of the nicest "car audio" tweets ive used. Sound great on the dash pointed firing into the glass @ 4K and up. I actually picked them up from a member here for cheap, thats why im using a different midbass....but id recommend the PC3.65c component set to anyone looking for an easy three way set up. Check out DIYMA.com for reviews on the 3.65c's......word to the wise the SS version is not no nice from what ive read.

Got the box built this weekend. 3.2 cubes @ 31HZ. I went a little smaller on the enclosure due to space, port size (14.75 inches of port per cube), and Sound quality. Should be +/-1.5 DB down to 30z or so before cabin gain.
Used aruaco cabinet grade pine. Relatively void free stuff and much cleaner than MDF. As a bonus, pine is a softer wood so, with some torque, drywall screws will self countersink. I have been using this stuff for years over MDF. its 23/32 and 35 bucks a sheet. No one has ever told me it sounds any different than MDF.

wrapped it up and put some blue spray paint on the baffle. not sure if the painted piece will be showing and will need to sand it some if so, but the color matches the dustcaps.

Totally forgot to post these up... Got the box in on monday, as well as started figuring out my battery mounting and amp racks. I plan to get the batts connected and at least the bbase amp rack in.. the Ruby and the 800.4 will run horixontally across the trunk with the 210.2 and 340.4 mounted vertically to the sides. I gotta check out the prices of 1/8 inch plexi locally as I want to make the amps visible an backlight...

On a side note.... anyone now where to but frosted lokking decals to go over plexiglass????? I seen steve meade do this and it looked amazing..... thinking of "SS" logos over the amps but in that frosted look so the lights hit it.... If you get what I mean, lol.

Box in.... got 2x2'x beaten in underneath it to level it... willl do some L brackets this weekend.... it is solid a fawk as it sits thogh.

I am waiting for my plexiglass to get here and some funds to make some fabric purchases.... I am going to go with black microsuede as my accent fabric in the car and the entire trunk will be in it V. the yellow leather...I have all the fuses i need and wiring so got lots O that to do.

Also got some questions, if your following:

----should I go with two or three 80MM fans in the center of the amp rack or sapce them out two on the sides and one in the center? I would prefer to go with two fans in the center of the rack between the big amps.

----should i put my mids in the kicks? I have read about the benefits... its there or on the pillar.... if I put the mids in the kicks... the RS28's will most likely be cross firing in the pillars. I worry about volume with the FR88's down low like that.

messed with installing my mid-range test pods....decided for a kick panel install as I've heard all the benny's but never done one. Please let me know your thoughts on the aiming and such... I will be playing with point of aim before glassing them, plus i need to get the system as a whole completely installed :)

Decided to go with my dayton RS28A tweets I used in the car last time... For sheer volume I figured they would work better than a 3/4 inch tweet. Also tried the CA glue trick on my pillars. Holy crap batman, much easier than fiberglassing... They are pointed a little down, not sure how it will affect stage yet, may change them or may not...

------my hope is the off axis response of the metal dome will help with the wrong point of aim I ended up with..... Not going to body fill them till I hear the thing as a whole.

ow for my mids I purchased a set of Peerless HDS glass fiber cone 4 inch mids. Again for volume and low end crossover point, plus, I wanted the bump in efficiency. I may do a review on these as I couldn't find jack on how or what they sounded like.
heres the mid:

Didnt get many pics of making my kicks, still need to listen and aim more. Right now I have them aimed at the sunroof handle.

Back in da trunk, I managed to get the two vertical beauty panels cut out. I need to get the center one cut and all of them covered. Right now though, I am more concerned with getting everything audible.

Tomorrow I will be working on aiming the mids and fiberglassing the front of the pods so i can get the front stage playing music. from there I will start working on getting the midbasses installed and the door panels in.
some miscellaneous stuff:
Door panel cut for clearance:

Been a while but have been getting some work in. See pics, give me some thoughts. thanks.

Major changes to set-up:

1. removed rub2500D; added Exile XI2500.1
2. Removed 4" mids, added 5.5 Silverflutes.
3. scrapped the infinite baffle in the door for sls 8's. fabricating pods instead.
4. Sh*t is loud a f**k. The subs way over power the front stage.

PICS:

FYI; I know i have to recover the midbass pod on the drivers side. Laid it face first in some mulch and it dented the vinyl...I will be getting to it in the future after everything else is done. Toda7y i will be getting teh 8" speaker grills in for the midbasses. As well will be testing the RS225 VS the SLS.

Time for an update:
So I tore out the yellow and put in black velvet on the trim panels, door inserts and center console. I picked up a set of Morel maximo comps and used the tweeters on the pillars....saved me a bunch of time on making rings doing filler work...I really wanted a stereo lol. I also settled on the Zaph ZA midranges for the kick panels. They sound great and handle the volume well. 87DB @1w/1m which makes up for the sound loss in the kicks. have them High passed @250. I think I need to redo the drivers kick and squeeze a little more airspace out of it... in the future lol. So time for some pics.
