Your Skar rp2000.1 probably won't last long wired to 0.5 ohms though.  Maybe you shouldn't try it.

i have already ran that amp at .5ohms and had to send it in for repairs thru a audio place i no for blown mosfets lol

At a 2 ohm load, this Wolfram amp may be a better choice for your subs.

 

 

now thats a bad ass amp it the same price as i payed for my banda amp the wolf on it really draws me to it :P

Even with the Banda amp, your ride should be bangin hard.  If it isn't as loud as you feel it should be, you may look into doing an in-depth soundproofing of your car.  At 3000w the whole freakin car should be shaking.  Getting all those resonating parts to stop resonating within audible frequencies will result in great usable db in the car and it will sound a lot better too.  You may also consider upgrading your power and ground cables beefed up to OFC and maybe 2/0 instead of that CCA stuff you have.  Look at welding wire on Amazon as it works great and is a better value.  You might also look for some folks in your location that are into car audio and talk to them about what to do.  They will be able to see your car in person, whereas we can't really do here on the interwebz.

I missed the pics today.  Looking through them now I can say that your wiring needs some refinement.  It may not result in more power but it will result in better reliability and safety.  A charred cinder on the side of the road will make exactly 0 db.

From what many of the hard hitters here at this site have said, it may be quite a chore to get 150db out of a pair of woofers in the trunk.  You might not be able to do it with those woofers.

 

My opinion, from not being an SPL kind of guy, would be to make what you have sound as great as you can by paying attention to all the details..such as the wiring and the soundproofing and the tuning of the gear...so that you will most enjoy what you currently have and become more familiar with the art of it.  Chasing a db rating is like chasing a rabbit down a hole...a very expensive hole.

You could get another skar rp2k and run one to each sub wired to 1 ohm each. Just gain match them. Regardless u need to at least add 1 more run of 0 gauge to the back and upgrade your alt. Also sound deaden like crazy! Flex kills db. Also if you can fire the subs forward into the cab with port forward and seal it off from the trunk youll increase output alot.

if you look at the pics i posted the subs and port are facing forward in to the cab i already priced out a 250amp alt and how would i hook up the second run of 1/0  in my trunk never ran that much before so im curious i also priced out sound deading

Sorry didnt look at pics close just kinda skimmed. U could always run it under the car up against the bottom or cut some holes in the firewall. Either way i doubt youll ever see 150s without upgrading electric, more power, and sound deadening.
