2015 Cadillac Escalade Sound System Install - 6 12's all 1" Acrylic box, mids/highs started update page 25


Recommended Posts

Time to step my game DOWN.  In order to get these 6 modules in the empty battery, i had to get creative.  I didn't want to just throw these in there and call it done. I wanted something at least half way proper.  It always starts with cardboard though!

Once i see that it MIGHT work, i start making the next one out of metal. This is aluminum.  I didn't measure how thick it is, it is just some stuff i had on the shelf.  If i had to guess it is probably .060.

 

 

I blasted it pretty fast with my laser.

Now that i know that works, it is time to go the extra mile and do a complete 1 piece wrap around with laser cut and bent tabs.

I will pop-rivet it together once they are all in place.

Not gonna lie. It was kinda a bitch to get them in there. At least the first set. It got easier as i got to the more open area.

it fits pretty nicely into this empty battery (it is the stock group 48 size).  I just have to start wiring it up. Maybe tomorrow. 

 

In case you are confused...there will be a bolt on the side and all the red wires will connect to it.  This bolt will take the 16.5v from the alternator (that is also hooked up to my 5 Lithium batteries) and convert it down to 14.5ish.  The blue wires are stepped down and will go to the bottom of the copper terminal on the battery lid.  Once i put it all back together it will be just one big fat dummy step down block.  So the TRUCK (my Escalade) will THINK it is seeing normal voltage while the amps and rear battery bank enjoys the un-interrupted juice in the back.
