Time for the amp rack. Completely fan cooled and i will of course use an SMD TM-1 http://www.wccaraudio.com/smd-fahrenheit-temperature-meter-w-programable-fan-output-smd-tm1f.html to automate them.

After beveling the edges of this piece of acrylic, i sanded the edges down from 100 all the way to a wet sand @ 600. I planned on doing a flame polish but forgot....i still can any time and probably will once i run the wires. But it looks good the way it is too :D

IMG_6497_zps4e9ddea2.jpg

Of course it needs a logo. We did the RF logo on the box so i didn't wanna do another one on the rack....perfect spot for the SMD logo.

4 screws with a nice allen head on them look as good as they work.

Seats drop down with TONS of room to spare. The fans will ensure the chamber gets plenty of air.

Time to move up front and get the electrical squared away. Did i have to put an XS Power battery in a system this small? Probably not. But it's principalities involved here. So why not. A D3400 fits PERFECTLY in the stock location. With the side post adapters, it's just lovely. Available @ http://www.wccaraudio.com of course (cheap plug :D). I also slapped on a billet aluminum cover because i have several collecting dust on my shelves. I like the way it looks and so does Antheny.

XS Power D3400 FTW.

IMG_6569_zps30e8410d.jpg

Image5_zpsf757ca70.jpg

Side Post Adapters work really well. Leave the stock stuff where it is and just add on as i please to the top. Perfect!

Here is a shot of his ride for those that don't know. My old Oasis 24's with some plasti-dip over the chrome for a nice black on black look.

Yes, eventually we will drop it a few inches. One thing at a time please (because i know SOMEONE will say something). We only have 2 hands :D Give it time.

IMG_6586_zpsb3e53a90.jpg

Time for the Big-Three and a 1/0 run to the amp rack. We used XS Power OFC 1/0. We are using Skyhigh 12ga and RF 16ga Speaker wire for the other cables. We are using a Skyhigh Audio ANL fuse holder and Skyhigh Terminals/heat shrink.

To answer your question before you ask...there is no immediate plans for a High Output alternator. I have several in my "boneyard" and i think one or 2 might still be good. That is an option for later. But for now, just a RF punch 1000.1 and 300x2 really won't bother this stock 100a alternator IMO. If it does, we will for sure swap out but i just don't think it is necessary at this time. I'm not against it though! we might! just wait and see.

Also, the ANL fuse holder is on the other side of the factory electrical panel. For some reason there is no picture of it. It isn't put together yet anyway since we are not done running the 1/0 at this time. I won't put the fuse in until it's time to fire it up. It's just a fuse, nothing you haven't seen before :D

IMG_6673_zps91d44ef1.jpg

We needed a place to put a few Rockford Fosgate distribution blocks. I didn't wanna just screw them to the carpet. So i had this old piece of bent acrylic on the shelf from an old project...decided to use it. Found a great spot. First i had to touch it up with some paint because it had some scratches.

IMG_6687_zps2c5970a5.jpg

Some fresh paint and a RF decal. Should look sharp. :)

After thoroughly scraping the paint off with a wire wheel, we fastened the ground cable.

That is it for today. RCA's and actual wire from the blocks to the amplifiers tomorrow.

thanks for checkin in!

Out with the old stock mids and highs....in with the new! I actually sold the T1's to someone who was looking for them and upgraded Antheny to the T2's. As you can see, he was in desperate need.

It plays really NICE! We just have to install the white LED's and the TM-1. Then it will be officially finished! Oh we are also going to wrap the rear speaker grills in black just so it matches. No, there isn't any speakers in the rear doors. It's PLENTY loud without them
