nice start u really really rreeeeaaaallllyyyyy need to upgrade that wire...u will fry that wire especially runnin 2 amplifiers off of it....

Advice taken man, thank you! I plan on buying a 0 gauge wiring kit from a shop here in town here soon but I am buying one piece at a time to make this my best system that I have ever had. Whats shitty about tonight is that once we got it done we put the fuse back in and turned it all on and the amps werent getting any power. We checked both fuses on the power wire and all the fuses on the amps and they are all good. So tomorrow we are gonna trace wires to figure out what the hell is going on, but we are thinking its my remote wire. As long as I get it figure out tomorrow I will post some vids! I hope my skills are impressing to some of you lol, I just thought this amp rack would look nice and be cheap for me!

Its been a while but I got some new pics for my build. I now have matching Diamond Audio amps. I still got the 600.1 for my subs and now I have a 500.4 for my mids and highs. On to the pics:

I also took the advice from footlongsam and bought a cheap sound deadener over the weekend at Home Depot. Cost me $20

Heres a few pics of my tailgate before we bagan installing it:

Posted Image

Posted Image

My wife wanted to try it first.

Posted Image

Here I am working hard.

Posted Image

This is the last pic I got because I forgot to take one when we got it all covered. I only have one layer down and I'm gonna do a few more wednesday and I already notice a difference in my bass.

Posted Image

Lastly the last stereo comp I went to was USAC sponsored and I entered streetbeat 2. There was a total of 4 people in the same class and I took third place playing Oxycottin with a avg score of 138.3 and a peak of 139. I took third place and felt special because its literally the first ever trophy I have won for a stereo comp!
