Q-powers dont need massive amounts of air. Thats the good thing about them. Good look and it looks good. I just dont like the wall idea.

When my box is done, ill have rite at 7.9 cubes. And if the box is to specs, i can run recommended power, but if its smaller, i can run a little more power and if its bigger, i cant run quite as much power. Just because im putting 4 15s in a little ranger does not mean it will sound like a**.
kewl dude. good luck with that then. still a little perplexed as to your box design and choice of arrangement, but its your system dude. good luck either way

Since the paint didnt dry fast, i thought well, ill redo my amp rack and also build a battery rack. I have a little problem with one of my 925 batteries. One of the corners is kind of dinged up and when i took them out to make the battery rack, i noticed that it leaked water into my truck. I siliconed up the corner real good so i hope it will be ok. Onto pics.

The amp rack. Nothin fancy but it gets the job done

The battery rack. Not a lot to it. I just wanted to make something to where the batteries wouldnt slide around.

Nice set up! Man I miss 15's I was lucky to fit my 2 10" in my regular cab. I used to have a Nissan Sentra 2 door with 2 Kicker Pro 15's and a hifonics Boltar running them back when Zed Audio designed there electronics.
