So in my car I had two RF P315's running off of a Crunch 2400.4 amp and was pretty content until my friend Brandonbkd decided he was going to upgrade his RF 15'' to a Fi Audio 18'' and somehow talked me into getting the Fi 15 (because there was no way we were fitting a box for a 18 in my trunk). First things first, i had to sell my system to gain funds for the new system. As soon as I sold the subs i bought the Fi 15, and then the wait began. So, while waiting a month for the sub to come in I started in on the box.

Then it was paint time. Now i did end up switching the port color to white after a while but for the outside of the box i went in the Rhino Liner route. IMG_0841_zps99c11674.jpg

Now one thing I didn't mention before is that I wont be spending thousands of dollars on the build. This is going to be another budget build but in no means a cheap and thrown together build. All of the boxing is being done with 3/4'' MDF including the wood for the battery box and amp rack which is coming later.

After the box was built it was time to work on electrical. I knew that with the extra power the new amp will be putting out i would need to do the Big 3. Now for the amp I was trying to decide between the Crescendo 2k or the SoundQubed 2.2k and I ended up going with the SoundQubed. So back to the Big 3. First thing i did was measure out all of the lengths of wire i would need. For the wire I went with Sky High Audio 1/0 gauge wire and 300 amp fuses as well as for the new power wire to the amp.

Now i know there are four wires there and that is because I did a run from the battery to a ground, just because i had the wire. Here is a pic of the battery side of the engine bay.IMG_0852_zps28325041.jpg
