Anyone know much about load boss alternators form ebay? I was considering getting a 170 amp one for my car so i could have more electrical nuts so to speak. I thinking about running my 4125 strictly up front with some additional kick panels and adding a good mono amp in the 1500rms range for a new sub stage Im unsure about yet..."2x icon 10's....?" However, l have to beef up my electrical platform first. Im thinking a kinetic 1800 up front, and a 600 in the back and of course a 170ish amp alt- my ish lightly dims as is so Im sure its at the brink. Any thoughts?
...This was your first build? wow, I've seen installs done buy guys in this hobby for years that haven't looked this clean. I'm impressed man.
Very clean install, great looking box too. How do you like those knu triple 0 gauge terminals? I read a review on diymobile and someone recommended the JL triple 0 ones and said the knu ones didn't hold the wire very good.

Just out of curiosity, I understand if its not something you want to say, but how much did you spend total? It is a very good budget buy IMO and I am curious how much the "bare essentials" cost.

Gotta hate it when you shear your nuts
A general breakdown of cost:
MBQ 4125 : $ 164.99 shipped from Ebay
ID ctx comps : $ 212.00 out the door from a local car audio shop. Could have bought them for 189.00 shipped but supported the little guy this time.
RE sub : $ 150.00 shipped from Ebay. They wanted $169.00, but I did the "or best offer" option and they let me have it- I was shocked.
Rattle trap : $ 129.00 shipped from Ebay Mad cheap for 100'^3 of 80 mil deadener. I will however invest in second skin next time. enough said.
0ga wire : $ 108.00 shipped from Ebay its no name 100% ofc no tined copper wire w/ ~5100 strands
the rest of the odd crap is about 150 bucks worth of bat terminals, ring terminals, pretty stinger 0 to 4 ga reducers, 50' of knu kl3 14 ga wire, 5' of knu kl3 12 ga wire, wire boots, mdf rings for the doors, xtc baffles, stinger helix rcs's Im sure im missing something, but thats about all of it. Oh ya, the **** box was about 70 bucks to make too- 4x8 mdf $38.00 at lowes, 8 bucks for the glue, 5 bucks for the mounting screws, 5 bucks for the speaker terminals, and 24 bucks shipped for the areoport. and 4 cans of krylon primer, and 6 cans of krylon satin black at like 3 bucks or so a can at wally. All the little **** really adds up!
Wow, why didn't I see this build log sooner? Looks amazing: I love the car, you did a awesome job at the deadening, and the box looks like complete ***. Nice work!
