    06Titan's Build Log

    I am new to the audio game, but it has turned into a new hobby/passion for me. I had 2 other set ups before this one which ended in disaster. I went the wrong way and payed an audio shop to install everything. Having the audio shop do everything ended up in melting multiple fuses, melting speaker wire, and messing up my firewall because they were lazy. I’d like to throw a HUGE shoutout to my brother (Cali_Screw) for installing most of the this, Thumpin_Titan, tc3k101 for basically telling me what to get and answering all of my questions, and d_man1. Go easy on me, it's my first build. We are learning as we go along.

    To start with, I will show a bit of the transformation my truck’s exterior has gone through. It's a 2006 Nissan Titan LE Crew Cab 4WD
    It is going to go from the oldest (new) look to the current way it is now:

    Re: 06Titan's Build Log

    After ripping it out, we decided to rip out the extra RCA's I had stuck in there. For some reason, I had 2-3 sets of RCAs ran by the audio shop. Here is what was left over (BTW, my RCAs and Power Wire were ran next to each other too):


    Afterwards, we moved the RCAs on the passenger side of the truck, and the power wire/speaker wire on the driver side.
    Next, we decided to clean up the AMP on the back wall. Here are before and after pictures






    Pictures do not really do what we fixed justice. The amp wiring looks 10x better, and we are still thinking of ways to improve on it. Any suggestions would be helpful.

    Now it’s time to start showing off some of things I bought 
    Battery – I bought a 34R-PC1500 Odyssey as a main starting battery.

    Next up is the wiring: My amp kit came in, or most of it.. I am missing a ground wire, but it is all good. I should have some left over from the power wire.








    Followed by another 20 feet of 0 gauge from KK Kollosous wiring for my big 3:


    I also picked up some of their 10-gauge speaker wiring:

    Re: 06Titan's Build Log

    Here is the battery installed:



    Big 3 wiring crimped, soldered, and ready to be installed:


    Subs are being built by tc3k101
    My brother was going to build my box, but he has never done a ported one. Instead, tc3k101 referred me to d_man1 who is building it.

    As soon as d_man1 started to cut the wood, his blade broke off and cut his leg which resulted in 3 stitches lol. My audio curse is still alive! Lol Hopefully after everything is said and done, it will be broken.



    52* angle cut




    What the front will look like, minus the hump cut out which still needs to be done.


    1 of 2 pieces of the bottom of the box that leads to the middle hump.

    Got another shipment of stuff in, and it feels like Christmas again! Lol Just waiting on my second batch of new KK wiring, fuse holders and subwoofers.

    Re: 06Titan's Build Log

    Small update:

    Almost everything is installed. Sorry, no pictures yet. It's been a small learning experience for us. First, KnuKonceptz has nice products, but their customer service *****! The first product I ordered from them (amp kit) they shorted me a ground wire, along with my brother. Second, I ordered an additional 15 ft of 0 gauge from them and they must've sent 8 feet because it hardly reached my drivers side seat. I've emailed them, and left multiple voice mails with no response.

    The battery is a little big to be underneath any of the seats. If you lay the battery by itself off to the side, it sinks in no problem and fits. However, if you put 1/2" MDF underneath it, and try to bolt it in, it won't fit at all. So we are trying to figure out how to fix it. I have an idea and so does my brother. We will see where that takes us.

    Besides that, all of the wire is ran except one because we need my dads help to lift up the center console, the fuses/holders are installed, the amps are installed, and just need to hook up the battery and wire subs up when they are finished to play it. The amps are a REALLY tight fit underneath the passenger front seat. My brother did his best to make it look as clean as possible.

    I will get pictures of the final product once it's done. We still have a few small things to do along with the finishing touches.

    Where the battery will go.
