    So I have been testing sub forward and sub rear. With forward I definitely get more bottom end output, facing rearward I get more output in general. Still need to completely decide

    Just read through this, man. I'm at work so I didn't get to watch the videos, but I think I've stumbled across them before. This should be stickied IMO. Great fab work!

    I've always heard sub rear at the rear-most part of the trunk will work best to prevent cancellation. Of course, it's a trial-and-error process. It would never work for me because I need my trunk space.

    Got the main piece wrapped in vinyl, its glossy looking because I put on Armor-All.

    Stay tuned for the video showing how to do this!

    Excellent build! I guess it's not getting much attention because you're not running 4 15's???

    Yeah, that's clearly the only way to get comments, and youtube views. At least it feels that way. I spend days editing my videos, showing you guys how to do things, and get few views. Someone uploads a video that has four 15's or 6-10's with shaky camera footage left and right, and distorted mic going nuts, eleventy-billion-views. Oh well, I appreciate those that do take the time to watch. All these techniques could be applied to a large build too!

    Great stuff man!!! When is the next video going to posted up. I am thinking about doing something like this except I will be having a aq3500 for my two twelves a 4 channel for the highs and a battery in the back. Which autocad program were you using so i can try to work some magic? I am not sure whether to have the two amps in my spare tire like you did or have my battery down there and do something else with the amps. I am leaning towards the idea of two amps in spare tire I figure the size diff really wont make a difference since I could cover that up. Keep up the good work

    Thanks man, I use SolidWorks. You could always try google sketchup though. If the amps are different sizes I would offset them front to back, if they are side to side I think it would look strange. Covering them up though like I did, but with similar shapes will help you to "link" the two together visually and it will be more appealing.

    That's exactly what I was thinking having the big amp in back which is about 25" and front amp in front which is 15" then hopefully fitting the batter right in front of that if it fits. I am going to measure it up and I will let you know what u come up with. I am definitely more confdent now that I have seen your videos

    thats what I like to hear man! Thats why I take the time to make all these videos, I want people to learn and take their skills to the next level. Saying I helped someone improve on their install skills is an amazing feeling.

    So here is the video guys, within it you will learn how I wrap a complex panel with vinyl. This includes heat shrinking, what glue to use, how to get rid of wrinkles, etc. If you have any questions let me know!

    A little break from my build, but we all need to kick back and laugh every once in awhile!

    Man I seriously cannot wait for it to warm up here so I can get back in the garage, an update for those of you who enjoy my youtube videos, in the downtime I have been learning some of the Adobe Product sweet, I have also invested in green screen equipment, and new microphones, the next videos are going to have a big step up in quality!
