That's very clean. Great job. I'm not a huge fan of Alpine stuff but I appreciate a quality build.

Nice job.

Not too many people would dado the dividers like that... most just cheap out & butt them together, caulk & screw 'em together.

You have some woodworking skills.

I didn't even get a jack with my truck

If you don't want to keep it in the cab, taking up room, just grab a plastic rubbermaid type storage box (with locking lid) & stash it in the bed. If you're worried about rusting, just shoot it with some rustoleum before you stash it in there.

my system only requires 4awg wiring so 1/0 would really be over kill plus a blow to the bank... im just wondering if doing the big three upgrade from the stock 8awg to 4awg would help me any... im not having any problems with alternator whine or headlight dimming at all so i guess i shouldnt touch anything one thing tho my interior cab light will dim to the bass but thats not really an issue

Really nice job on the box! I'm a fan of the Alpine's as well. Your setup with the amps is a lot like mine, except mine are in a fully enclosed box.

i think when i was designing i saw your amp box nate and was thinking of doing it like that but desided against it my platform covering the amps goes right back to the seat bottom when its slide back all the way so its protected and gets enough air. i was nerveous at first about overheating esp in the summer and was going to do pc fans as you did if i had a problem but i had no problems at all
