    nice build!

    the only thing worrying me is that one of the power cables is really close to the headers. the insulation might melt from the heat and potentially causing a short.

    yeah right, I reckon thats almost touching.. lol

    also, any reason you didn't do a single chamber?

    I would have because chances are they aren't exactly the same volume, which will changing tuning frequency slightly between the woofers.

    not a huge issue, but I tend to be picky :p

    Nice camaro. 305? My brother just picked up 2 of them for 450 bucks, an 85 and 88 iroc. Swapping a built 383 into the 88 model. I had planned on using the wheel well in the back to house 2 12"s for his setup, but i havent made any permanent plans yet. You running that amp on the stock 97a alt?


    I plan on getting the set of wheels that everyone has for my falcon too, lol.
