    SoCal Skar Audio build

    Whats up guys! After the long awaited SKAR VVX-10's made it to me im starting this thread to showcase the ongoing build i have for my truck. always switching up setup's but now i will stay with SKAR. I loved the VVX-12 i had in a sealed box for a temp setup!
    The Vehicle:
    2002 Ford Ranger EDGE-3.0L - 3" Custom Built exhaust from headers to muffler - K&N cool air intake. Truck used to be lifted 3" on 33's. just recently took the lift off and set it back to stock for better gas mileage . there is ~185ft^2 of Second Skin Damp Pro in the truck from roof to floor to firewall.

    ok Now for the list of equipment!

    HU: Pioneer AVH-4200DVD w/ brake bypass done
    Wire: Rockford RCA's 40ft of 1/0 Cadence. Two runs of 1/0 to the back for positive and two runs from the back to the battery.
    Battery: Genesis Sealed 79AH batt up front with toolmaker 5 1/0 out battery blocks

    Front Stage:
    Speakers: One set of CDT COM 626 components
    Amp: Rockford T400-2

    Sub Stage:
    Two SKAR VVX-10's
    Amp: one Cadence ZRS-C65 (have two but want to see how they take it)
    Box: 3ft^3 @ 28hz. Build pictures will be in this thread. It will be a very nice little box im doing for myself. figured I build such nice boxes for customers might as well do one for myself!

    Elec. Upgrades: For Now Locally modded Stock Alty which does a great job on lower power setups like this with big 3 done in kicker hyperflex 1/0

    Front stage is in and done along with the HU i will get pics of that later. Pics of equipment:

    Subs and Amp




    Batt Blocks


    what the box will be painted with


    also in the 3d rendering the baffle where the subs are mounted is painted red. i changed it to panted chrome to reflect red LED's nicely

    dry fit on the front trim baffle


    kool pic


    made this LED strip with some surface mount LED's and some silicone. decided to use it for my box. I cut a small recess on the inside of the trim baffle before atatching. also notched a groov out of the bottom for the power and ground wire for the strip to hide it nicely.

    Re: SoCal Skar Audio build

    i use spakling. i use it also when painting boxes on the edges. works amazingly well. cheaper than bondo but not as good obviously. but $5 per pint and i use about 1 pint per 4 boxes. i fill in each hole with my finger first then i use a single edge rzor blade and scrape the top to somewhat smooth it out.

    Maaaan, where did you get those battery blocks???

    BTW clean box. I like the way you wrapped the port around the back of the box. I always do that and people wonder how I can fit such a gigantic port into my boxes. lol

    didnt "wrap" around the back of the box. its in the shape of a U actually. about 38 inches of port length. yields great results. the subs load great
