    RE is out of stock with their amps..looks like JBL's going in your trunk.

    You WILL need a larger alt for the 1200.1.

    And you forgot the music itself. So many times I see people going mad over audio systems, and they forget the most important element, the music itself. Buy yourself some new CD's to compliment your system.

    Oh, and you don't NEEd scoshe stuff. wire is wire, as anyone here will tell you. I don't know if 100sqFt of damping mats are enough. How much damping do you want in your car?

    as far as dampening is concerened I am not so much concerned with keeping it all in at the moment as much as I am with stopping any rattling, yeah I heard the re-35-1 was out, I am calling today to see when they will have new ones?

    Anyone else have any suggestions?

    Thanks Paikah

    looks good just get the sub in there first to see what rattles and 100 sq ft. of second skin should be enough. I used 50 in my cutlass and got about 20 sq ft. left. Really nice setup and regular wire from wal mart or lowes will work just to save you some money.

    Re: What else do I need?

    You'll need more than a 4awg amplifier kit for two amps. JBL doesn't have an ssf - I'm not sure if your post was saying it doesn't, or does, wasn't that clear. Don't be hasty and buy a new alternator yet. It would be best to see if it is required first. People jump at the chance to recommend a new alternator.




    Is this not a reasonable place to park?

    Thanks for the input

    I was planning on buying two seperate amp kits for both amps, and in reference to the JBL that was saying I would need a ssf for it

    And yeah I am going to try it all out before I go out and get a new alt, thanks.

    you may not need a new alt. try getting it rewound to about 120A, no, mabey 145A... and dont froget the distrobution blocks for the ground and power... and dont get the distro blocks with internal fuses, just go with external fuse holders for how much power youre gonna be pushing

    it does as it's named... it distributes power to your compnents. You could have a fused one(positive) or just a block (for ground).

    It will not be very cost-effective and will not be easy to install to have several 8 or 4 gauge power wires out fo your batt terminal. Instead, a thick cable that is capable of delivering all the power requirements for your components will be your main power line that goes to the distro.
