Hey everyone! This will be the second build in my Chrysler 200 and I figured since this was an upper level install I would make a build log. Basically I'm switching from 4awg to 1/0awg, upgrading my alt/batteries, and switching to an AQ2200. To start I'm gonna upload some pictures of the new gear I opened today and then tomorrow I will upload pictures of my current build before I rip everything apart.

Current Build:
2 PSI Platform 1s in a 4.0cuft box built by Brian Horton
Alpine MRX1100
Rockford P400X4
Incriminator Components
Rockford Power 6x9s
Pioneer 5500BHS

Update:
AQ 2200
NVX Sound Deadener
NVX 1/0
Singer 350a Alternator
D1200 in the back

NVX 1/0, NVX 8awg(speaker wire), and fuse blocks.

Here is my current setup!! I plan on flipping my box around 180 degrees to have it fire inside the cabin, because I am afraid of my trunk actually falling off. I'll be making a small piece of wood to seal the front of the box from the trunk.

Put the subs 6-7 inches away from the rear. It will give you the best results. I have the same car.

My trunk moves WAY too much already, I don't want them any closer! My trunk doesn't close right anymore with them that far away.

Update from the last few days. I got decently far into ripping out my QuickRoof and installing the NVX sound dampening. My goal for tomorrow is to have my MDF and foam cut for the battery/fuse mount and the amp mount.

This is my trunk all ripped apart

Today I got some good stuff
This is weather stripping foam stuff that I will be lining the bottom of my rear deck with, so when it bounces it doesnt make as much noise.

Here is how I will be mounting my sub amp.(The black washers are rubber) the middle nylon spacers is representing where the amp will be.

Sorry for the crappy phone pictures, but its all I had at my friends garage. So the alternator I ordered had the wrong case on it. But we installed most of the 1/0. Some time this week I will be installing the rear battery so it can be charged in my car for a week or so before I finish everything. Today I also ordered 5 more feet of 1/0.

Turns out Singer sent me the wrong alternator case.. So he is making a new one now.. tomorrow I plan on finishing everything so then when the new alt comes I can just install that and be 100% done with everything. I need help with the 'big 3' I cannot find an engine block ground!!
