    Here is a link to a thread on another forum that is loaded with pics and step by step instructions a guy used to build a wall in his van with a bunch of subs. What I like about this particular thread is that you can really see all the hard work that goes into building something like this.

    Re: my first time to build a system i really need some good advice

    Okay...this is a very wide open topic with PLENTY to learn about. Ok, so u want to compete? like spl competition? if so, you need to know what ur getting urself into...plenty of money, plenty of time, and u REALLY need to learn a lot...i mean as much as u can b4 you jump into it. I've been on this forum for like a year and a half, and i finally think i know enough to compete somewhat successfully.

    SO, cruise the boards. what is ur budget? will this be your daily setup also, or just strictly competition set-up? what type of vehicle do u have? Also, i wouldn't go with tons of 10s...maybe 2 12's...one 15 or 18....u need to look at what organization (dbdrag, nspl, usaci, meca)hosts a lot of competitions in your area and decide which class you want to compete in.
    a few companies to look at are:
    Resonant engineering www.respl.com
    amps: tru-tech, orion, mtx, mmats
    also, u'll need to possibly plan for electrical upgrades...most likely at least a 200 amp alternator (minimum...) www.execessiveamperage.com and an optima yellow top battery.

    good luck, tell us what ur looking for and we can help ya get started. peace
