    t1990le's Project F-150 Summer Build Recap

    This is pretty much a recap over everything that I have done through the past couple of months. I have completely changed my sub stage from DB audio equipt. to RD and upgraded all of my electrical.
    On to pics:
    I got rid of all of my Theft Stickers



    1awg Welding Cable, 200 BP Alt and Optima Yellow Top (I got bored the other weekend and cut the black battery cover up to fit the new YT so it doesnt just have wires sticking out everywhere)


    RD 1750 running @1ohm with 2 RD Sonace v3s (have been reconed with all Alpha softparts)

    I know, I know the subs are diry in the pics. I have since cleaned them up.


    I have been having problems with my port so i sealed it up good and tight and am now waiting for my pair of Aeros to come in late this week hopefully.

    Vid with the box sealed (5 cu ft total atm) and all windows open.

    I am open to all comments and any constructive criticism.

    Nice build. What are you using to secure the box in place? Or is it heavy enough to stay in place?

    You should swap out the dual 4 gauge wire to a single run of 1/0..

    Thanks,
    it has little feet on the bottom of the box to balance the weight and lift the box enough that the subs dont hit the floor. And its heavy as $h!t lol also the back of my seats are a big help also.

    I have a piece of 0 that i did use as a gnd but it is too short for me to have the amp in the middle. I might put it back on when i get the aero ports in since ill have to move my amp then. But even now i dont have any voltage issues. The truck stands at 14.4 at idle and drops to about 13.8 at lowest with the ac running and lights running

    You need a forklift to get that box in and out of the truck. When are we going to install come comps? I need to practice some tweet pod building on YOUR truck.

I left it there after going to a reception for the University of Alabama last night down at Coca-Cola HQ. Going to see U2 tonight at the Georgia Dome so I'll get it back then. Donate some comps and 4 channel amp..LMAO! What do you think this is? A freakin loan shop for car audio? I got kids here eatin up all the extras I have sitting around. I had to lock some up to save them for later.
