Finished under the hood! ...4/0 chassis and alt grounds, 4/0 power cable from the alt, and 4/0 power/ground pair going to the rear.

      just got done with my chevy trailblazer build.  here are the specs
      Mechman 250 Amp Alternator 
      XS D3400 under hood
      XS XP3000 in rear
      big 3 upgrade
      0 gauge GP Car Audio wire throughout 
      heatshrink and lugs crimped by me
      2- Skar EVL 15's wired to 1 ohm
      1- Skar SKV2 3500 watt monoblock
      4- Skar PAX65 6.5's in all 4 doors 
      1- Skar RP 150.4 4 channel amp to the doors
       
      Amps are bolted down with socket head allen screws into spiked t-nuts
      fuseblocks are also bolted down with allen screws into spiked t-nuts
      Subs are also bolted down with allen screws into spiked t-nuts
      nothing moves 
      all lugs are hydraulic crimped by me 
      all heatshrink done by me  
       

      my 2004 Chevy Trailblazer only 56000 miles on it.

      Sony MEX XB100BT radio. It puts out decent power


      ripped out the wimpy stock speaker and put in the skar PAX65


      installed back in stock location modified the speaker ring BINGO 


      mechman 250 Amp alternator.  Out with the old in with the new.


      Installed.  Took more time to put belt back on.  1/2 shorter 


      under the hood battery


      big 3 done.  0 gauge GP Car Audio wire 


      couple of fuseblocks ran 


      starting of box build 3/4 birch 



      got the Skar EVL 15's fitted in there 


      monster box in back  LOL


      started some wiring.  box has angle brackets which is bolted to wood 
      and wood is bolted to frame the rca's are covering the bolt other bolt 
      is under battery.




      got speaker wire and rca's all tesa taped and zip tied down  even put a
      fire extinguisher in.  

      used 8 gauge subwoofer wire to subs and 14 gauge to door speakers
      all 0 gauge to amps.  Even used that Bluetooth voltmeter that ExoContralto
      recommended.  works pretty well.

      EDIT (10/23/17): SOLD  
      I bought a bank of 73Ah K2 Lithium two months ago.  I couldn't find more than a single bank.  Since then, I've sold my car and have decided to add 3 banks of lithium to my build, so I am buying all JY Power.  I already have 2 banks of JY, so I'd like to sell this K2 bank to get a third JY.

      The bank with the copper bars is the one for sale.  I made the bus bars, and the neat thing about them is that you can configure the cells in any configuration, unlike the JY bars.


      Here's a thread I created concerning internal resistance.  These batteries measure 3.3milliohms.  One JY bank I bought measures 3.3milliohm and the other 2.7milliohm.  So these K2's are in good shape.
      Here's another thread detailing a conversation I had with Cameron at K2 concerning the good health of these cells:
      Talk about boosting your resting voltage!  I had 395Ah of XS Power AGM installed in my car already.  When I added the 73Ah cells, the system voltage rose to 13.3V and stayed there strongly.  I ran these for about a week before I sold my second car and decided to go bigger.
      ***
      Asking $700 shipped to the lower 48 with bus bars included.  $650 delivered to (almost) anywhere in central/east Texas and Lousiana.

      I've been helping a buddy install a system in his 2016 Jeep Wrangler JK.  I finally have enough pics to start a build log, so I'll be loading all of them up over the next couple weeks.
      The requirements were simple: he wanted (4) 8's or nothing at all.  Silly?  Maybe; but we met the requirements and hope to be banging before the end of the year
      The stock sub (an 8x10) has 4 voice coils


      Ran some numbers in TermLab at first, but then switched the design over to WinISD.  Came up with this size enclosure:



      That router feels good man



      Went with PSI-8's with High Performance suspension for 600Wrms per sub

      We were jammin some of that good techno

      The original plan was to have a few tube ports, but I had a hunch that they were too small.  Thats about the time that Triticum came out with his port velocity calculator, and I realized the port velocities with these small ports would give me the tuning we were wanting, but also gave us almost 100 m/s port velocity (yikes!)

      Then the design changed to have a properly sized port attached to the back panel, bringing the velocities down to around 25-30 m/s

      I didnt really trust my kerf skills yet

      More pics coming tomorrow.  Thanks for looking!

I intend to fix all of the posts but it will take quite a while.  Photos start on page 29 currently. In the meantime all of the photos are available on Facebook by searching #projectflexington and many are on Instagram under the same hashtag.

      So figure it is time to start a build log for my 6th order wall. Been working on it for a few weeks now. I'll start by posting the equipment I'm using for the build.

      Batteries:
      2 nsb170fts and 2 stinger group 31s:

      3 banks of super caps:

      2 singer 320amp alternators (these came with the truck, I'm currently in the process of redoing the bracket to strengthen it and add a tensioner but I'll elaborate later):

      4+ spools of skyhigh 1/0, knukonceptz 4/0 ofc for alternators (will post pictures later)
      Terminals, marine grade ring terminals lugs, properly crimped with double wall adhesive lined heat shrink:



      Subs are 2 sundown x15s rev 1(will be rebuilding for level 6 18s at a later date):

      Sub Amp, kicker warhorse:

      Head unit and tweeters, Sony dsx-s210x and 4x Earthquake Screamers, 1.5" 150wrms per pair silk Dome tweeters with replaceable voice coils:
       
      Mid bass, 4x dayton audio 10" pa woofers, 300rms each:
