    Video Build Log - Fi BL - Rockford Fosgate - Focal - KnuKonceptz - Tips & Tricks!

    Hey guys, I am officially starting another build. Rather than post only pictures I am going to take you guys along for the ride with video updates! Enjoy!

    Phase 1 is making my amplifier rack. Starting with making some insert pieces to hide the amps.

    Got my template transfered to a smaller piece! Now to do some more routering to get the smaller piece converted to a female shape so I can cut out the inside of the larger panel.

    That looks pretty sweet. I recently got a router as well and haven't had a chance to play around with any stuff like this yet. It will be fun to start doing some stuff with it, though

    Working on modeling up my amp rack in SolidWorks. Trying to decide if the amps should be angled to one another, or if they should just be parallel to one another.

    Alright so I got the amp rack supports complete. This little assembly is strong. And I must say adding the threaded rivets is amazing for mounting the base. To see what I am talking about watch this:



    Here's some pics:

    Well I decided to go a different route on the templates over the amps. I busted out my Engineering skills and modeled this up on the computer. Check out my "3d amp rack" and let me know what you think.

    It;s coming to life! I think its cool how similar to my 3D rendering that it is looking so far! This is just a quick progress update! But I am loving the shape and would love to know what you think!
