My new system build

Well guys, ive been planning this new system for about a month or so.
The equipment:
Clarion VRX 785 indash
4 q power 15s
2 sundown 1500s or 2000s
8 cubic ft wall- tuned to 33Hz
3 powermaster d925 and 1 d2400batteries
Second Skin sound deadener
Stinger 0 gauge wire
Mechman 250 amp alt
Crossfire 404- mids and highs amp
2 crossfire 6.5s

This should be a good learning exerience for me since my biggest system has only been 2 15s with 1 1200 watt amp. My goal is to hit 151+ dbs. On to pics.

You could hit 151+ with out braking the window line.

I did it with 2 SI Mag 15's and one Sundown 1500D.

Looks good though. Keep the pics coming

Well, i posted some pics awhile back about a little console i was gona do for my truck. Well i almost got it done today. All i gota do is just put some bedliner on it and get 1 or 2 led bulbs to put inside to light up my name. I was gona do plexiglass and frost out the name, but it didnt work out too well so i just painted the plexiglass black them im gona put the bed liner over it. Hopefully it will be in the truck this week. What do yall think about it?

plan on carrying an extra set of wrenches in the toolbox to re-tighten all the crap you rattle loose.

glad you dont live near me... i hate that over exaggerated sound system crap.lol looks like you've got a good plan for it though. hope it works out.

Well i did a little bit of work on the truck today after school. I took the back plastic panels off. When i did that, i gained about 1" or so more room for the box to be deeper if needed. Heres some pics. Im ready to get some second skin deadener now.

I started fiberglassing the box today. I only had time to do the corners before i had to go eat for my gmas bday. Heres some pics. I will be fiberglassing the whole inside tho. I no it aint the best fiberglassing but its only my second time do it and it dont really matter how it looks in the box as long as its smooth. What yall think so far?
