    I don't plan on putting the rear seats back in. I have a family car with plenty of seats. I just need the one passenger seat to demo

    Re: SCION XD - DC XL 15s

    I still need to build a amp/ battery rack for my component amp and my rear batteries. I have everything hooked up to test the audio.
    Here are some pics of my Sub amp mounting and my rear floor carpeted.

    Carpeting





    Shot of the rear window clearance ( still need to put my rear hatch panel back on)




    Sub amp mounting (the sub amp is mounted on a board attached to my false floor and not to the actual sub enclosure.

    Oh, then you would be fine. I couldn't tell if that box would fit behind the rear seats or not.

    Re: SCION XD - DC XL 15s

    Pics of my batteries and wires before amp rack (I should say table) and wire management.
    Basically I plan on making a carpeted box table that will stretch the length of area I have to work with holes on the surface so I can run wire through and hide the brunt of them within the box table. the batteries will be recessed into the table. I might invert the subs just to see how it sounds for fun and I really like how the subs look. very shiny. I have always been curious as to how it sounds though. Anyway, I was curious to see if all my stuff worked.









    It was late and dark outside, so the pictures arent the greatest plus my car is dirty atm. will get some better pics tomorrow.

    BTW, I was a bit skeptical as to the performance of the AP30001D before I received it, but **** the amp is beast. I currently have the amp running 2 ohm bridged. Plan on going 1 ohm when I build my rack and run better speaker wire.

    zip ties are definately your friend.

    and as far as the ap 3000. get another one, your subs will love you.

    Used about 16 zip ties and and some thick coated garbage ties every time I used a zip tie. zip ties get brittle and brake especially in AZ's dry weather. The garbage ties don't. A little bit of reassurance.

    I went over kill with my electrical so I could add a second AP30001D. Didn't want to run wires again... EVER. I'll let my subs break in on the one AP for a few weeks and let my bank account take a breather. Will probably extend the box stopper board I have my current AP on and mount it above. Going to invert my subs tomorrow since I'm going to change out the 10 gauge speaker wire for some 8 gauge power wire (Not Knu). It's undersized power wire and should do the trick. Knu 8 gauge was too large for the push terminals on the subs.

    I just want to hear the subs inverted, I don't think I'm willing to give up my rear view though, even if I like it inverted.

    Pictures below are of my left overs- I wasn't very efficient in ordering wires and parts
