It took me a couple of months to put this all together since I did everything myself with the exception of the box that my dad did. Also I'm a college student so I don't have
a whole lot of money so I bought my system over a span of about 6 months.
ON TO THE PICS:
Dynamat is a must for any highpowered system. I used seven boxes total in my car of dynamat extreme. I also took my bumper off and dynamated that as well.
I filled several places in the trunk with expanding foam and it works great and at about 7 bucks a bottle is really cheap!
Here's the box my dad built.It was his first sub box but his carpentary experience came in handy. Also, all my dads tools and the big mess I made when wireing my system.Good thing he wasn't home to see all his tools laying around.
5 farad cap and optima battery. The optima battery picked up my voltage from 12.3volts to about 14.1-14.2 Everything was just thrown in the trunk for a while but now everything is bolted on to the car and the wires are tie wrapped.
Dual Brutus BX1500D and Kenwood amp
The 6 1/2's were a beehotch to put in. But finally, after about 4 hours on the first door and two on the second they were installed.
