    Caleb's SQ "Re"build log.

    Never made a real build log, just scattered progress through the forums.
    So, rebuilding...

    I'm currently tearing this down and rebuilding from ground zero. Before, it was a "finished"build with a few loose ends. Now, I'm rebuilding for competition, with a few changes and equipment upgrades, and upgrades all around.

    Plans:
    3 way front + 2 15" RF subs
    the
    Equipment
    Pioneer 80prs
    Rockford 3sixty3

    -Alpine MRP F300 running....
    PHD FB 6.1 pro tweets (a pillar)

    -Zapco Ref 1000.4 running....
    Midrange: PHD FB Pro 4" midrange (a pillar)
    Silver Flute 8" (kick panels)

    -2x Zapco Ref 200.2 running...
    2x Old school RF 8ohm 15" (will find specs later)

    Other
    Improve deadening throughout
    Amp rack
    Complete rewiring
    RTA/REW tuning

    Will add videos and pictures as progress goes fourth.
    Thanks!

    You should protect the power wire where it goes through the bulk head. I would sugest spliting some vacuum line and placing over the metal edges.

    Re: Caleb's SQ "Re"build log.

    More updates. Finishing the wiring up front. Amp rack coming together, still in its baby phase. A little sound absorption. Really would like to be a little unique in the wiring, maybe looms, but I'll think of something later on.

    RCA and remote from HU into cabin.


    More wiring, passenger side.

    Fiberglass absorption, rear well.


    Opposite well


    Amp rack construction


    Video update.

    Re: Caleb's SQ "Re"build log.

    More work...
    -Got nearly all the wiring in the cabin finished, all but installing the front to rear 1/0
    -Made much more progress on the amp rack. Got the basic framework done and mounted to the body.
    -Rear wells, B pillar, and doors deadened and filled with fiberglass insulation.

    Got to finish the amp rack, kick panels, and DSP setup. A pillars are going to be in test mode for a while before permanent fabrication.
    Rearwells






    B pillar


    Doors






    Door panel filled with insulation

    All the wiring inside the cabin is finished. Carpet is ready to go back in. 1/0 also installed. Still have to cover in a rubber grommet later.
    Floor to back seats.


    Back seats to amp rack


    From cabin to rear of amp rack

    Re: Caleb's SQ "Re"build log.

    Almost finished. Well, the hard stuff anyway. Had to put this under the passenger side. Back when my air conditioner drain flooded, i had to remove the foam underneath, therefore throwing the alignment with the carpet off


    Midbass kick vent - this is my solution for a sealed vent outside the cabin.







    Fiberglass prep
