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


Recommended Posts

these XS Power Titan 8 S6 (14v) Lithiums have 3 different connection options. Built in interconnects (sides), hidden 1/0,2/0 terminals (from the bottom), or standard like normal. I chose the hidden bottom side connects. I would have for sure done the side connects had i paid attention during the design phase 🤦🤣. I can’t do them the way they are sitting. I’m totally ok with that though. Bring on the Skyhigh Car Audio 2/0 OFC!

All the rest of the speaker wires will eventually go somewhere. I still have the top rack to wire up and of course the monster power wire to all distro blocks AND the amps. Lots more fun times ahead.

What you talking about

On Titan8 batteries there are built in 2/0 connections on the sides and small tabs on the sides so you can attach them together without having to  use typical bus bars.  Look up the Titan8 batteries if you dont know what I'm talking about.  If you saw the broken calipers he accidently welded together recently thats how he did it... He forgot about the extra connections available and touched them.

EDIT: He's actually using some of them to run the 2/0 wires.  Each side of a Titan8 has 4 2/0 terminals. There is also another little tab you can use to bus them that he is not using. 

The Titan8 is just tricked out!  Pricey but they can be setup so clean and all that extra bussing built saves on bus bars too.  They really arent that high priced outta the price range of other batteries even though people say they are.  I got mine for $530.  Could have gotten bit less if I had a looked a bit more I found out later.

Fuck,  that's cool mate. And, again, me being me, I absolutely LOVE the blue. I'm always in the minority, as most love red,..  but dude, that blue. Fuck yes, especially popping on those D'Amore boards. Fuck yes. So choice.

unless you are a dealer or you know a dealer willing to sell to you and make nothing, you aren't getting them that cheap. Just thought i would point that out.  That is actually cheaper than dealer. The average person is NOT getting them for $530. Just didn't want anyone to get their hopes up.  Be prepared for $800+ each. The reserve model is closer to $900.

Yea you're right. I should have been more specific not the ones @meade916has, the 14v are alot more like you said.  I forgot the 14v is alot more.  

The 12v you can get for $599.  I got mine on a black friday sale for 10% off.  Showtime Electronics has the 12v for $599 currently.  Wait for a sale you can scoop up a 12v model for about what I paid.

I'm with you on that brother!  I love the Blue also.  Blue and Purple always been my favorites.   The blue on the acryllic with the amps just looks so fucking clean

Made some wire guides out of clear 1/4" acrylic so when the wires tuck under the top amp i can keep them straight and even.  I didn't want to stick LED's straight to my amp, to me that seems cheesy....so i figured this would also be a great place to mount those.

While i was working on this, my son @Antheny916 came over and started making my custom length RCA's for me.  At least the first side. Once the processor is ready to be hooked up and the wires routed, we will trim and make ends for them.  Thanks Ant! They came out GREAT!

You can't really see them here, but in my next video i show it more. There is two 1/4" "sliders" on each side.  They give this thing something to rest on on each side.  The middle is held in place with a matching fastener (on that center foot of the top amp).  It came out perfect!

Two rows of LED's on each set of wire guides and aimed downward to illuminate the amps very nicely while hiding most of the actual light source.

If you look close there is two spots that had to be modded. That big ass 3" hole to allow the power wires to pass through and also i had to grind this down just enough for the LED's to pass by and not be touched by the amp.
