I am in "hunter/gatherer" mode. I am ready to get started but every time i think i am ready, i remember i need something else before i can even think about it. I guess hunting, gathering, planning IS getting started if you think about it. It's time consuming and costs MONEY. The system is already worth 20 times the car but well, i DGAF! When it's all said and done it can come out and ill have a HELL of a system for another car :D Time to have some fun though and that's what this build is about.

Got tons of Sky High 2/0 wire! Ordered up some 4 and 8ga as well as some nice OFC speaker wire for the doors. I have fuses, blocks and other nick nacks on the way too - all SkyHigh! Also, as you scroll down, you will see the DC Audio 90.4 amp that will run the doors. This is mainly going to be an SPL vehicle but it will have mids/highs for demo's - if it's worthy of a demo that is (when done).

Some samples :) OFC and CCA. I won't be using any CCA though.

Love the SkyHigh heat shrink.

This is the DGAF car - and i am about to prove it. LOL


OK the batteries DID fit end to end in the car and i probably didn't HAVE to do this. One thing i didn't want to do was have to lay over the top of my batteries and use a mirror to set the gains, xovers etc. So i decided to make life easier on myself by dropping the batts into the spare tire well. The spare tire well is round and tapered so all 8 batts won't fit......until now :D. Anyhow, remember before you give me some advice, i already know i need to make it air and water tight. With the exception of the fan system i am going to try and incorporate now that there is a big hole, it will be water tight. This ride is probably not going to hit the highway at all, let alone in the rain so it's no problem. Anyway, I already know what i am going to do. It's not done yet but i wanted to share what i did so far so here ya go.



We pushed it out of the booth and over to the other side of the shop where the lift is. Surprisingly, it rolls easy with all that weight (the woofers/wall).

Up on the lift and deciding my next move...All i do know is it involves a Sawzall. LOL



IMG_1252_zps291b7fbd.jpg




IMG_1253_zpseb35663e.jpg




Actually, i was going to try and pound out a little area and see if could get the batts in......but a few blows and my sledge hammer went thru. Well its no going back now! :D

this is just for fitment...i plan on bracing it down the middle a few times and also sheeting it with sheet metal to keep the elements away from the rack. It shouldn't hang very much lower then the well itself used to.

Worked on the battery rack a little bit. Its welded in critical spots and just tacked in other spots (for now). Once i am 100% sure its going to work, i will get busy and lay some final welds down everywhere else. Anyway, here is just a few pics of where i am at.

These fans were actually in my Civic years ago - they still work! They move a ton of air so i decided to reuse them in this build.

Cleaning up some of the butchery and making room for the fans. :D

They fit like a glove. A very tight glove.

Basically using this, some 24ga GSM, and some silicone (from the bottom) to seal the rack off completely. It will help seal around the fans too.
