    Re: 1991 Cadillac DeVille Build - RE, DD, RF, Second Skin, ect.

    Ok its time for a pretty big update since I have gotten a lot done the past couple of days. Unfortunately, I don't think I am going to have it done by Saturday so I won't be making the Street Warriorz show in Louisville but I am going to try and make the E-Town show in August.

    The first thing I got accomplished was finishing the wiring in the trunk. I bought a total of 30 foot of Kicker 1/0 Hyperflex, 15ft of blue and 15ft of black to run all my power and grounds to the amps with. I ended up using some Rockford Fosgate 1/0 Fuse Holders that I got off eBay pretty cheap and some 250 amp fuses to run to the Z1A. I used some KnuKonceptz Konfused battery terminals. These are probably the best battery terminals I have ever used. They have three 1/0 outputs each and the way the wires hook into them is really nice. I would highly recommend them if you are running multiple runs of 1/0 because they are easy to use, look nice and are relatively cheap.

    The next thing I did was get the Xbox 360 ready to go in. I wanted to fit the 360 inside the glove box but unfortunately it wouldn't fit completely inside. I had to cut the back out of the glove box to get it to slide farther in and then I decided to cut a hole in the glove box and have the front faceplate sticking out. This way, I will have easy access and it will look good when I get it all done. I am going to get a new chrome faceplate for it and attach some Cadillac emblems and text to it. I also bought some chrome trim so I could make it look flush when the install is complete. I know it doesn't look that good now but bare with me.

    I got my last amp that I was waiting on in on Tuesday. Its a Rockford Fosgate Power T3002 that is going to run the rear set of RE XXX 6.5". I got the speaker terminals wired with the 8 gauge KnuKoncepts Karma SS speaker cable. I put screw those back in and used some liquid nail to make sure everything was sealed up tight. I also used the 8 gauge wire to get each of the RE XXX 12"s wired down to 2 ohm. I also got the boards I painted earlier in the appropriate places on the box and got the screwed down to mount the two RF amps on. I got the speakers put in the box using some 1 1/4" security screws. I think it ended up looking really nice. After I get the box and amps in the trunk I am going to build a front panel for the amp boards to make it so you can't see any of the wires.

    I also got the two optical cables that I have been waiting for to use with the Xbox 360 and Alpine DVA-9860 to run to the H701 processor. They are some really heavy duty cables that I got from MonoPrice.com for a really good price. They are the premium optical cables with a 8mm jacket and metal connectors and only cost like $7.50 each. I would highly recommend them for any thing you need optical cables for.

    I also got a really sweet deal on a Batcap 400 that I couldn't pass up. I am going to use this only on the Z1A to give it a little extra juice in case I need it. I also got a Stinger SPV44 battery but I don't think I will be able to use it because I don't have enough room. If anyone is interested in it, its for sale.

    Ok here are the pics of what I got done this week. I'm planning on getting the last of the wires ran and getting the box in today. My DVA-9860 should be here today so if it gets here early enough I'll get that ready to go too. Check back soon for more updates!

    Mounting the amps on top of the box couldn't be any worse than mounting anywhere else in the trunk could it? I mean the vibrations are going to be everywhere. I might add a piece of the Luxury Liner Pro to the panels on the box to absorb some of the vibrations though. Thanks!

    anyone want to start taking bets on how long itll be before that 360 breaks....... they arent even tough enough to sit in an entertainment center let alone inside a car....and unless youve got a high def screen in the car is there really a point?

    to each his own i guess. nice work so far.

    The Z1A is for the subs, Power 1000 is for front tweets, front doors and theatre sub, and Power T3002 is for the rear.

    Nope, the PC2150 came from another member on here. This will definitely be a CarAudio.com forums car because I got almost everything from the classified section on here. The XXX 12"s, XXX comps and 6.5"s, the sub box, the Z1A, Power 1000, 2 Yellowtops, PC2150, Alpine H701, lots of wiring, Damplifier, and Luxury Liner Pro all came from this forum. Needless to say I love this place!
