    (2) Alpine SPX 137r component speakers
    (2) Alpine SPX 177 mid bass kits

    JL 500/1 amplifier
    JL 12w6v2 subwoofer
    SPL 3 farad digital capacitor
    Optima red top battery

    I never thought of linking to pics in the sig. Good Idea.
    I had those speakers in my first truck. They're good stuff for the price.

    Yeah, I've got a really old school sony amp sitting here (50x2) to throw on em, can't wait.

    I love 'em so far, they keep up with the subs fine, and you gotta love that grill, way nicer than the newer type s's.

    I agree. the grille for the old models ****. I installed the CS model (newer ones) in the family tahoe. Didn't use the grilles.... just wasn't worth the effort.

    I broke out my jigsaw as well. When you have 8s, you kinda have to.

    Re: Show off your custom Speaker mounts

    Don't have a before picture, but originally the door would only accept a 6.5 and you HAD to use a 1/2" spacer. I originally had some seas l18's with an MDF spacer. Now I have Dyn mw162's on 3/8" plastic cutting board spacer. I have about 4 layers total of deadener with an extra layer around the woofer itself, and 2 layers of ensolite.
