  1. I want one of those shirts! (Along with the black license plate shirt on the website.... I'll order one soon, been busy)
  2. I can't get over how sweet that big ass box looks back there!
  3. Yeah, that's the same as the distribution block idea. Just using the posts as distribution blocks.
  4. Me personally, I would use a small, solid distribution block and wire the speakers off of that. So much easier than soldering or trying to stuff them into the terminal. It'll be inside the box, so if you don't like the look.... technically you won't ever see it anyway
  5. As far as brands of alternators, mechman and brand x come to mind. Don't go cheap on your alternator! That's the heart of your whole vehicle! I've read too many horror stories about people cheaping out on their alternators and having nothing but headaches. Unfortunately, all good, high quality 1/0 OFC wire is going to be expensive. But, if you're ok with buying a hydrologic crimping tool off Amazon (like $80-$100) you can easily do it yourself with 1/0 Royal Excelene welding cable. It's not OFC, but it is pure copper. And you can find it for quite a bit cheaper than car audio OFC. The difference is in the size really. Car audio cable is oversized. Sometimes up to twice the size. It's also more flexible. Car audio OFC is rated about 350 amps per 20', and the welding cable is rated around 300 amps. That being said, you're not running crazy amounts of power, and depending on the size of the alternator you decide on, welding wire should do the trick just fine in my opinion
  6. That makes sense. You could try switching the speaker wires in the amp and see if the problem switches sides.
  7. So, I would say it's not the head unit or the RCA's. It has to be the amplifier, speaker wire (the run from the amp to the speakers) or the speakers themselves. Do you have another 4 channel you can throw in there really quick and test with? I know it's a pain in the ass. That or switch out the speakers themselves.
  8. Congratulations on the little one! I'm in the same boat as you. I need my backseat back so I can ride with my 2 girls. My old setup, was just an MDF enclosure made to look like my backseat. I didn't really feel comfortable putting my kids in to of it, so it's time to put my backseat back in. Everything being moved to the bed. I'm paying close attention to how you're fitting everything around the contours of your trunk. I want to do the same thing on top of my enclosure and make a false for on top of my enclosure. Everything underneath. So if I need to haul something, I still can use that space.
  9. I'm digging option 2 as well. Show off that Zapco power center stage. I'm in the same boat with the router. I don't want to spend dumb loot on those template tools (though they do look pretty damn cool) so I'm making my own. We'll see what happens lol. You look a lot more seasoned than I am lol. Looking damn good bud! Loving how perfect it's looking so far
  10. Damn, I was hoping I could blame the crossover I think what you'd need to do is start to try and isolate the problem. If you have another 4 channel you have access to, even if it's not that good, switch it out and see if the problem persists. If you get a pair of RCA to some kind of mobile device like a phone, you can hook it straight up to the amplifier and take the head unit and RCA's out of the picture. You can switch the RCA's around on the amplifier to see if the problem switches sides. And just check all your connections to verify that they're nice and tight.
  11. If you don't know exactly what you're listening for, tuning your gain by ear isn't a good idea. If you use a DMM to set your gain, it might seem daunting, but it'll yield you better results that are safer to your equipment. Just take it step by step. Also, those Q's work best in a huge box. Do you know how many cubes your enclosure is? Also, are you using a stock head unit and LOC?
