    I may have to waste a PTO day either Thurs or Fri this week, I can't carry any over and my job gives us Xmas day after instead of us having to use time so I miscalculated. If so, and you still need a place with a garage, I may be good. The only thing to be concerned with is........ the possible Nor'Easter coming up end of week.

    I ordered the wrong part number from weldingsupply.com so I'm still waiting on ring terminals but I think even without I'd like to build up something to hold the batteries and re-mount the amps. We'll keep an eye on the weather and go from there I suppose.

    I'm new to this. What would you have paid if you took this to a shop and had them build it? How did you conceptualize the build before you started?

    Obviously this is an extreme build, not your daily ride. Most I see are using cardboard boxes to mock up, or "conceptualize the build"
    Or if you are good with measurements, and sketch up you can do a mock setup there also

    Shops will always rip u off. Most of us can build a very loud or competition system for around 2000$

    Paying a shop to do that and you're talking atleast double to triple that.

    I haven't read this thread but id be willing to guess that he spent atleast500-1000 on wood alone

    Gain on an amplifier to meant to be matched to the output voltage of your headunit. Think 3 volt, 4 volt, 5 volt pre out specs you see on headunit specs. This is how gain works for a given pre out(5 volt) theoretically. However most head units clip(start to distort) at around 80% of your volume so your 5 volt pre out wont give 5 volts Cleanly. You will most likely get 4 volts out at something like 33/40 on your volume knob and would thus set your gain to 4 volts. (these things can be measured with a GOOD Multimeter. )
    80% of your total volume is (max volume) X 0.8.
    Example is 40(is your max volume so, 40 X .8=32

    Re: Bye bye back seats....

    So as an update I did get some more batteries in this winter and 00 gauge cable but didn't have a chance at all to test. Got back this spring and had some setbacks which prevented me from doing anything. I found I had a couple subs with tinsels broken so I performed some minor surgery to the subs and replaced them and can actually get around to some testing with the new amp.



    Happy with the numbers and still have some things to try. Here's video of outlaw metering we did while testing voltage at the amp.
