    2001 Lincoln Continental sound system and electrical upgrades

    Hey guys, over the next couple of months I will be saving up to make some changes to my sub system and electrical. It will take a while to save as much as I will need but it will happen, eventually

    My current system:
    American Bass XFL 12" dual 4 ohm, wired to 2 ohms
    Hifonics BRX1600.1d monoblock amp, 1200W RMS@2 ohms, 1600W RMS@1 ohm
    XS Power D680 battery in the trunk, standard wet cell battery up front
    6.5 cu. ft. kerf ported enclosure
    2 gauge power wire from front battery to rear battery, rear battery to amp
    2 gauge ground wire from rear battery to chassis, rear battery to amp
    4 gauge ground wire from front battery to strut tower
    Kenwood 6.5 coaxials in the front doors
    Kenwood 6x8 coaxials in the rear doors
    Eclipse CD1200 head unit

    I really don't want to upgrade much more of the electrical but I will if I really need to. It is such a pain running new power wire, especially bigger, due to where it runs through the firewall. Big 3 is not an easy task to do on my car either due to how everything is situated and where wires are in the engine bay.

    Planned upgrades:
    (4) Cadence S2W8-S4 SVC 4 ohm 8" woofers
    New enclosure for them
    Image Dynamics CTX-65 coaxials in the front and rear doors
    Hifonics BRX160.2 amplifier for the door speakers
    AGM battery for up front
    Complete big 3 upgrade, but this won't happen until probably next spring or summer.
    1/0ga. power and ground runs from front battery to rear, again this probably won't happen until next spring or summer.

    Brand suggestions for battery and wiring is appreciated, any suggestions for the rest of the setup is definitely welcome! Stay tuned, this build will take a while.

    New addition to the plan: High Output Alternator, somewhere between 220-280 amps. This will also be later.

    Decided on a Super Start Platinum battery from O'Reilly's.

    Going with a big 3 kit from mylows10 and dedicated runs of both power and ground between batteries!
