looking good, just make sure to put a switch on that fan. Otherwise you will be able to hear it through your box.

I'm gonna have (2) of the 4" Seaflo fans on the sides of the box cooling the amps.  Thanks for the tip, I will most certainly have them switched.  I had (1) 4" in my trunk with my 6K and it was LOUD AS SHIT but dang it moves some air.

Smart move deadening the dash. It gets overlooked often, my Tahoe dash has never cracked because of this. 


I have 6 fans on a relay and can hear them pretty clearly, I fix the problem by turning it up a bit. 


Putting major work in brother, looking good.  I still think we (Houston area guys) should all get together for a demo session.

My drivers side wing panel was basically touching the window, so I had to trim it down with the jigsaw.  Kinda late in the game for this, but its taken care of now.


Used 3M Super 77 spray adhesive to adhere the Luxury Liner Pro down to the Damplifier Pro.  I know its better to leave it in really large pieces and drape it over the floor, but I dont have a lot of space in the cabin so I just did this instead.  Bricks for pressure while the 3M sets.


FINISHED DEADENING.  Gonna lay a new carpet in soon so you wont see any of it.  


Got some LEDs for inside the box.  The sticky-back is trash, but luckily, it peels right off.


I connected a whole strand for one side of the box with 4 connectors.  These things are janky as fuck, I dont know how people attach these inside a box without having a loose connection.  I may try to solder these pins to the light strip to see if that works.  Any tips are appreciated!  


Started the amp rack this weekend too.  I am determined to have this playing by Thanksgiving!



And just finished staining all the stuff in the trunk.  It looks dark, but will lighten up once the clear (spar urethane) is finished.

      I'm looking to start building a battery bank since I bought a crescendo bc5500 recently and won't be able to use it for a while. So far all I have done is the big 3 in my vehicle with the stock alt and added two extra batteries. Some walmart battery a friend gave me and an xs power xp750. They power a Skar rp-75.4 and an audiopipe apdl2001d "2krms". I have two crescendo symphony sc-650 6.5" component sets and two sundown x15 v.2's in a custom box tuned to 32 hz. The goal is to eventually have a c1100.4 power two 6.5"s, three tweets, and one 8" fiberglassed in both front doors with three x15s walled off on the bc5500. I want to replace the stock battery and have at least 4 batteries in the back. Just not sure of which batteries to get. I was hoping to not have to spend upwards of 400$ per battery. I'm still a car audio newb so I went to the xspower website and typed 7500 watts in the audio calculator and it told me one d7500 and three xp2500s would be sufficient. Thoughts?? I'll post some pics / more info soon

      Alright SMD, I think its time! I would first like to introduce myself. My name is Wood and Im 23. Everything i own and will be done (by myself unfortunately) will be from hard work and dedication and my loyalty to the car/ car audio scene. No hand outs!! I work 50hrs a week, own my own EVRYTHING (but sometime it feel like bills own me LOL ) so YES, It will be a slow, but very progressive build. I'm enrolling back in college this coming fall to be an electrical engineer with 6yrs prior service in the Air Force Reserve as an EE on the F-16. I am a car enthusiast and music FREAK!!

      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.
