When the vehicle is off (alternator not turning) and the batteries are all just sitting there, the 16v bank rests at about 17v. The front 12v battery being connected to the rear batteries with the step down modules leaves it at a constant state of 13.9-14.2v. I didn't think that was a good idea to be like that all night long so i made my own isolator out of a 80a relay. So when the car is switched ON, the relay allows the 12v (D3400) to charge as normal off of the step down modules. Once the car is turned off, the connection to the 16v bank is broken. Also, knowing there will be some heat generated on those modules, especially after i hook up the 4 channel, i decided to add some fans to the heat sinks. They will be monitored and automatically cooled off with the SMD TM-1.

So i got that started, it all works GREAT! I decided it was time to get a head unit for the system. I will probably make a podium of some sort so the wires are going to be ran into a removable molex plug that i can detach when not in use. Here is just a couple pics...tomorrow i will be working on it some more of course.

New deck. Nothing to high end, nothing too shitty. It should get the job done nicely. I even got 2 of them....one for the 90' Accord (needs tunes bad, has nothing).

So knowing that i probably won't drive this car at all, and being mostly an SPL car, i figured there was no need to put the deck in the dash. I decided on a podium so i can control from the outside of the vehicle.

This empty XS Power D2400 display should work good. I was going to make something more complicated until i remembered that this is the DGAF car! I don't wanna spend too much time on it. But even that said, i still spent a good amount of time on this because that is my nature. :D

IMG_0890_zpsner9mmsw.jpg

IMG_0891_zps0rp5affb.jpg

I was going to do this on the side to retain the look of the top of the battery...but it isn't deep enough to do that. So time to carve a hole in the top.

Believe it or not, this part was a BITCH!

SMD TM-1 © on the left will monitor the XS Power step down modules. It will also kick on fans mounted on the heat sinks to cool those down. It also kicks on 4 more fans that bring fresh air into the trunk. The middle is the SMD VM-1 to monitor the 12v side of the car. The right side is an SMD VM-1hv to monitor the 16v battery bank.

Even though i clearly DGAF, we still soldered mostly everything.

my boy CoolAid came by and dropped off a few tickets to the Rittz show coming up. YEEEEE.

Before i can build the Molex plugs, i need to make sure all this stuff works. Man it is UGLY! but temporary :D

IMG_0941_zpshe2owlnr.jpg

I decided to use a 12 pin Molex plug to make it detachable so i can remove it and store it when not in use. There is a lot more than positive and negative going on inside of this podium so i knew i would need a good sized plug to get it done. The largest i had available in my shop was a 12'er so i used it. 12 male and 12 female "pins" on each side were crimped, soldered and pushed into position.

IMG_0942_zpsql3zesxq.jpg

These pins were individually crimped and soldered.

I decided to use a Pac LC-1 just in case i need to turn the bass down or in case i need to roll in slow. At 18v, @.35 ohms, i might need to roll in.

IMG_0980_zpsuboesaoq.jpg

I also decided i needed a kill switch to shut the bass amps off in case well, they need to be shut off. LOL. It will be nice to have if the 9.0k's go into protect. I can reset them a lot faster this way. I would put it up top but i ran out of room. I could put it next to the knob but the knob is in the center.....which means this thing would have to be to the right or left and make it look crooked. So the side was what i decided on.

that's all for now! With the source unit, 4 channel, electrical, cooling fans, podium and all that stuff finished, i can move forward to the cabin and work on the mids and highs. Then some acoustics...try to gain some DB. This is one milestone i NEEDED to finish to move forward!

So me and my son took out the carpet and added a 7" half round to the port opening. At first, i gorilla taped it. It blew right the hell out. Then i screwed it in with 3 large screws. It ripped itself clean off of the screws. So i got some washers and about the 2nd burp, it blew it off with the washers as well leaving large holes LOL....But anyhow, before that happened, i gained about .7 db and finally broke a 60.2 at the dash!

Forget the scores though, this thing just destroyed the F##k out of the windshield :D
