    2009 Sierra Ext Cab 18" Zcon Install (Tons of pics)

    So i got a new truck, 2009 Sierra SLE Ext Cab Short Box (4.8L V8)
    Performance mods so far: K&N Cold Air Intake, MBRP XP Series Stainless Dual Catback Exhaust

    Decided to go with the 18 Zcon for a sub. Only 1200watts for now, plan to drop in a AQ 2200 asap. Sounds great already though.

    System Specs:

    Stock 145a Alternator
    Stock Battery
    Kinetic HC2400 (2 runs pos, 2 runs neg between batts)
    Big 3
    All Kinetic Wiring
    Tsunami Fuse Terminals
    Pioneer Premier P690UB
    US AMPS MD1D (1200rms) and MD23 (300rms x2)
    CDT ES-6MO, DRT-26a, Upstage Tweeter, 560 Xover
    SSA Zcon 18 D2 (6.6cu ft @ 34hz)
    80sq Feet RAAMmat BXT II (doors, back, part of floor)
    25^ft eDead Xtreme (Floor)

    Just finished the build tonight so i have some time to make this thread. Enjoy and let me know what you think!

    Should have taken more pics of the sound deadening, the whole interior was torn out and the entire back, back wall, floor and front doors are all deadened. it was well worth it too, with windows & doors closed there is barely any noise from the outside. No major vibration sounds either. The Headboard was vibrating real back in the back against the frame, 0.5" thick foam strips between the two solved the problem. no major vibrations now. this truck is build solid!

    The Truck:






    The Sub (Other sub used to compare is Stereo Integrity Mag 15)

    Battery spacer plate i made out of 1/2" plate steel (the Hc2400 was too long and would have hit the truck's CPU without raising it with this plate. Utilizes stock tray screws and threaded rods to mount battery.)



    RC Car Tire cut up and used to prevent battery from sliding:


    Custom made fuse bracket by me (uses shock tower bolts and self tappers into the side of the frame)



    Aluminum Buss Bars i made, positive covered in liquid electrical tape.

    Nice job you do... This is not a subwoofer, it is a massage chair...

    Congrats.

    Nice wiring job...

    Very clean.. Deff way more work than I put into my current vehicle..But then again, if I had a brand new, or much newer car, I suppose I would want it spick 'n span.. Anyway, I hope she sounds great and you figure out if you wanna throw on the AQ2200 or not.

    Looks amazing. The grounds on the amps are just to the cab? Also did you bypass the voltage regulator on the alternator?
