Seeing that this arc amp draws 470A at full tilt, I'm thinking of doing another run of 2/0. I've already got 2/0 power & dedicated 2/0 ground going all the way up front. I'm torn between switching that 2/0 ground to power & just grounding to the frame in the back. Orr buying another 2/0 power & ground to run up front... After reading a bunch, everyone's got conflicting ideas of chassis ground vs dedicated runs

ahhh, so i had to cut the top! i really wish i was able to fit it in in one piece but no shot. Now theres 2 little 'wings' on the side, theyll eventually be leveled out and a nice coat of epoxy poured on top. I really dig the grain where the edge is routed too. also, waiting on a new flush trim bit to cut the top to match the curve of the single piece of wood, on the front

dude...bro...my man....

 

i have never seen anyone "stack" boxes like that.  It might not be crazy intricate as far as a design go's, but your method is something i have never seen before. I am looking forward to seeing you finish this! great job so far!

Thanks Steve! It's more of a budget stacked fab lol, was able to use all of the wood.. Just really wanted something different & ran with this, pretty happy with it so far though
