6ga speaker wire i got for $5! It had to be trimmed a tad to fit the post terminal. I might change to direct leads

Can see it was trimmed to about 8-10ga

Now currently it is playing but only on one 1600 at 1ohm. Initial amp rack didn't fit with batts once wires were in so i said fuck it! Going to finish the substage pretty soon so i can have two 1600's at 2ohm each. 1600 does 1200 at 2 ohm. Going to be able to drop wiring to 0.5 ohm though just for burping. Not going to ever do 0.5 daily though.

Also, pretty finalized on my front stage

MB Quart 1000.4 - each channel at 2ohm

2 sets of DB Drive S9 components

2- SQ SDC2.0D4 8's

Each door is going to have 2 6.5's similar to

1 8" in each kick similar to

And 2 tweets in each a-pillar similar to:

I'm going to wrap the sail panel in carbon fiber vinyl though so the stock tweet hole will to covered/flush

Those subs should do OK in a Z box. The way the front panel of the box is pretty much sealed under the strut bar, it makes the back end of car kind of a 4th BP. The area is by the cars design and the box style tunes it to around 50hz.

Correct! It sounds amazing as is, I'm going to add a second baffle though to make the subs flush mounted and flush with the entire strut bar. It'll look a lot better. Later down the road I may opt to give up my trunk space/spare tire for a bigger ported box. As of right now though it is loud and sounds good so i'm happy. But we all know, builds never end.

Thought i'd also point out, the "RCA's" Are actually coax cables.

Chose them because of extra shielding, thicker gauge. They have seemed to work really well. The better test is when the front stage is done.

I thought that cable looked weird. Hopefully it doesn't mess with the sound. Cool idea though

Well the finals were held in AZ today, my Z is about to go SQ. I might have to test your coax wiring soon. I have crescendo mids and tweets on the way and a 360.3. Maybe the shielding will make up for the lack of flexibility.

I'm about to go through your build log. On the coax cable, i used a coax with RCA screw on adapters. If I were to do it again, I'd probably to coax cable straight to a soldered on RCA.

So i have a question guys, what do you think I should do for my Mids and Highs.

#1: 1 set of Crescendo Mezzo's

#2: 1 set of Crescendo Mezzo's in factory location with SDC 8's in kicks

#3: 2 set DB Drive S9 components, glassed pods on doors, SDC 8's in kicks, tweets in a-pillars

1- cheapest,easiest, and factory looking

2- Going to require fiberglass

3- possible better SQ, highly expensive, very time consuming.

There's more pros and cons to each of course, so help me out guys
