    Thanks man! So the passenger door started flapping a little bit this year after the rebuild. Turns out the changes made quite a difference because I went to close the door the day after I dropped it off at my shop to get started on the current project, and it wouldn't close. Upon further inspection I noticed that 3 of the 4 bolts had sheared off lol Replaced everything with grade 8 hardware. Can't wait to see what a difference it made. So here's what I'm currently working on. I'm replacing the head unit with a windows 10 tablet and high end external sound card. I'll go into more detail about the hardware when I have more time. Im also upgrading the power for the mids and highs and doing a bit of wiring clean up More to come

    Over fusing alone can take longer for the fuse to pop in case of a short. So if your running 1/0 and your amps rating is 200 amps, why fuse the wire to 300+ amps? If you want to get real anal about fusing like I do it, I put my clamp meter on each of the positive runs of wire and measure the current over a burp which will be the only time the amplifier will pull its max current. I then fuse each run of wire to the closest I can. So in my truck I got all 9 of my 1/0 power wires fused at 150 amps. Never a blown fuse, and if an issue arises the fuses will blow almost instantly instead of waiting for a 300+ amp fuse to blow. So many misconceptions about fuses, I dont understand where people come up with some of this stuff.. Using a smaller fuse will not impact resistance much if at all unless your pushing the fuse to its limit. Using a larger fuse will not make you gain more power, get louder, etc. That is unless your currently under fused to begin with and are constantly blowing fuses. Just because a fuse is rated for say 300 amps doesn't mean it will blow once it sees 300 amps. The truth is it will probably take 400+ amps of current for 5, 10, maybe even 15 seconds before it blows (every fuse will be different, even if they are the same size/style). Fuses do not protect your amp, if your amp is going to blow, it will blow regardless of a fuse 9 times out of 10. A fuses job is just to protect the wire, hence why you should install the fuse(s) as close to the batteries as possible. Side note for people using circuit breakers if you ever trip them, or trip them occasionally be aware that they get a tad weaker each time they fault and will begin to trip easier due to the arching that eats away the contact when you turn them off/on. This is also the same for AC breakers in your home, and relay switches as well that will either get stuck on or stuck off because the contacts can weld themselves together. So if your turning a breaker back on you should always make sure everything that said breaker powers is turned off to prolong its life. Another thing many people with rear additional battery setups never realize either is that the amp will draw its power from the closest source with least resistance. This is often times the rear battery bank. That rear battery bank is a HUGE buffer to your electrical system and lightens the load on your primary power wires that run from the front to the back tremendously. So when the bass note hits your amplifier will pull from rear battery first, than through the wire to your front battery, than through the big 3 wiring to your alternator. This is why people with clamp meters nor auto part stores with a cart that they wheel out to your vehicle to test the alternator cant. Well they can but neither you or them cant load the alternator down enough to demand the alternator to produce its full current. That is unless you disconnect almost all of your batteries and then put the amps under a max load, or have your own load bank to do just that.

    Fuse for the wire on main power lines, and fuse per amp specs for amp input runs. Ex: my main power runs have 300 A fuses but my amp power runs have 200 A ones.

    Here we go woth this one again. Let me just ask all you "you fuse for the wire" guys a question, why do amps have fuse ratings if youre just supposed to fuse for whatever the wire can handle?

    I just found out madden was coming back to PC! I have been waiting for this since 2008! PS4 and Xbox are nice and all but i am a PC gamer before all. You guys probably don't care, but i do! And if there is any other sports titles on PC that you play, i am down to play ya, just let me know what you got! I for sure wanna play anyone who wants to play when Madden 19 is released!

    Well, it's been a while since I have updated this thread. Haven't done a ton since last update, but there have definitely been some improvements. Let's start with something I found pretty hilarious. Got pulled over on the highway last year. Passed a cop who was 3 lanes over from me and he gave me the funniest warning I've ever gotten: Anyway, this springs work consisted of a redesign of the 6th order. Basically flipped the internals, shrunk front chamber and ports and did some new bracing Also added quite a bit more screws lol New front chamber loading wall Sealed off the cabin much better: Subs loaded More to come!

    I updated the wiring to the alts dont have a pic of that though. I do have some of the interior and body, even the rims look different first I'll post some pics of the amps and what not http:// http:// http:// http://
