Didn't get a ton done tonight but I got over a big hurdle, since we didn't have time to add the tensioner, I had to man handle the alternators on with the old belt so I can make it to a meet on Sunday.

Ended up using some ratchet straps and managed to get her mounted up

Going to try to get the subs and other 2 10s mounted tomorrow and start hooking shit up!

Going on 12hrs of working on this thing. I Redid the front portions of the port so that everything is flush and so I can add a second top layer that will overlap.

Decided to wait to mount the subs till I have the back of the box braced, so that's what I'm going to go do, then screw on the back of the box and start hooking shit up finally. Gonna be a long night lol

Awsome build. I'm taking notes on your box, I love it. Are those 10s SVC? Where will you cross them over at if you don't mind me asking?

The truck is a beast, 149.8 sealed at 28hz, 148 door open at dash at 23hz lmao. Low power, bench seat, cab not sealed off fully, box not sealed, no deadener. Even with all the air leaks this thing moves a metric fuck ton of air, violent below 30hz and still plays hard up to 50hz! Absolutely cannot wait to start finishing things and see what these baby subs can do!!!

Now time for some sleep. With the exception of a few hours of breaks and an hour nap, I worked on the truck from 11am Saturday till 8pm Sunday so I could make it to a local meet. Managed to make it and it was all worth it, everyone wanted a demo. I'll post more pictures tomorrow and reply to posts.

So to catch up on pictures, here's where I mounted the subs to the removable baffles.

I used 1/4" bolts with nylon lock washers but was worried the points might tear the surround:

So I ground down 2 of the points, since the heads just fit in the basket, all I had to do to keep them from spinning as I tightened the nuts was apply a bit of pressure with my finger.

Here's a sub mounted in the removable baffle

Subs mounted, gotta say my removable baffle system was worth the time and work, almost no effort to load the subs. It was great!!!!

Crimped some ends, the kolossus fleks 4/0 is massive

Got wire?

Warhorse mounted. Made a temporary buss bar to tide me over until I get my projectdb ones.

Managed to get 4 runs of 1/0 from front to back and one nsb170ft installed. Definitely can tell it will get much louder once I get more electrical installed!

Awsome build. I'm taking notes on your box, I love it. Are those 10s SVC? Where will you cross them over at if you don't mind me asking?

Thanks man! I'm not sure what it am going to cross them over at. I'm planning on getting a dsp in the near future with active crossovers and adjust. And yes they're svc.

On that note, I ordered the DC 175.4 that will be powering the 10s!
