after cannibalising this stuff from my last stereo, had to wait to install it until i had the money to get the rest. i go on vacation in a few weeks, hope it warms up a bit before then so i have the whole week for the install.


what i have right now


2 kicker CVX 12s 750w rms each, i wanted to try a sealed box this time, in the ported one they where making my car fall apart



second battery



power wire, that one is 3 runs of CCA which from my estimation should be plenty, and the bag is bits of 0g i had left over from my last car.



amps of course, zx2500.1 and zx 650.4


RCA's



3 way electronic crossover



kicker QS65.2 x 2 love these speakers(cuz they are the only ones i havent blown out)



this pic is just to show the beefy magnets



had to buy a diffrent 4 channel amp (which is being shiped now) cuz the one RCA output on this amp is bad and dont know anyone who can fix it, plus i figure if I ever do get it fixed ill just use it to add more speakers :bouncy:


i'll add everything I got being shipped once it gets here

got my other parts in.





a bit of rubber anyone?



little bits



figured id go with a pretty big isolator incase i decide to upgrade my alternator



this amp is going to power my kickers



some 4g wire



decided since only half of one of my amps work, ill use it to power this 8" crescendo midwoofer and set it to help out with the midbass



now just to wait for my vacation week to do the install, best way to do it so i only have to tear it apart once

Depending on how thoroughly you plan on deadening the car, budget for the full week and then some. I did my truck from floor to roof and it took me closer to 2 weeks of constant work. It was barely driveable that second week, but I had to get to work and back. I only did the doors of the Challenger and that still took me a few days for tear down, deadening, vinyl, baffles, and speaker mounting.

well got all my speakers in and wires done just have to finish building the amp rack. didnt get to sound deadening the whole car yet cuz the raammat i ordered showed up 5 days late



running the power wire was pretty easy just had to lay in some uncomfortable positions to pull it threw the firewall. i got the power wire and remote turn-on wire running along the door, and my front speaker wires and rca's running down the center concal



got this neatly tucked in side the dash





door tweeters where pretty east






keeped the crossovers inside the car, so dont have to worry about moisture, and it fit nicely into the side pockets





for my speaker brackets for the doors I decided to make my own out of plexiglass. which a local place sold it in 1/4 inch without special order. it took some time since we didnt have all the proper tools, but it looks and works pretty good




took some figuring out but decided to mount the back crossovers plus my electronic crossover in behind the fender well






before i finaly installed the speakers I wraped the bracket in some sound deadening



took some beating of the metal to get this baby in where the factory sub would sit, but she fits nice now




got the whole car back together and last to connect the power wires and
