System I'm starting on

OK, heres what I've decided on with the whole system, not great but I just want a little bump for the movies & a fair amount of power to the components.

Ranger Extended Cab 99-07 MTX Thunderform Subwoofer Box
Thunderform Amp:
Amplified
Thunderform Colors:
Gray
Subwoofer:
Included - default

Alpine MRP-F450 Amplifier
70 watts x 4 @ 4 ohms stereo

2 sets of Infinity Reference 6810cs(on order)


0 Ga. wire from the battery to an inline fuse, 0 Ga. from inline fuse into cab to dual fuse holder to feed 4 Ga. to each amp.

Alpine DVA 9860 H/U(already sitting in my computer room.
Then when everything is installed I'll go down & have video screens installed in each visor.

Rick

Looks good, but why a 70x4?

Are those 10's or 12's?

Should be a clean set up

Thanks guys.
The components are good up to 90W per channel so the Alpine should push them ok. The subs are 10" & are powered by the built in amp in the enclosure.
Like I said, not great & not a bunch of power like I usually lean towards but I think this should be enough for my needs.

Wow, that is sweet! How much did the sub enclosure run you? I looked at them a few times but never decided. I wanted to see how they fit. So can you take a picture once you get them in because that picture kinda sucks. Like maybe put a person back there for perspective. Thanks and good luck wiring everything.

The enclosure was pretty pricey. I looked for days & the best I found was $479 with subs & amp, think its like 6 something on Crutchfield & Sound Domain.
On the Tonneau I thought I was going to have to have 1 made up custom. Found it on Autoanything.com

Well, starting today, painting the new radio surround today & tomorrow I'll start installing the components in the doors & paint the black section of the door panels to match the surround. Still waiting on the wiring pig tails but they should be here today. I'll try & take pics as I go.

I want to be done with everything but the SC & headers by April 07 which is 1 year from the time I bought it. Theres a big show then that I would like to attend which I've always shown my F-150 until this year because it was sold.
Heres some pics of the new surround painted, still needs 1 more coat of clear.

Those Thunderform sub enclosures from MTX fit really well. Unfortunatley when I bought one for my truck several years back I was really dissapointed by the amount of bass. Hopefully they have gotten better.

Well, I'm not needing pounding bass, just want some bump. I'm getting to old & deaf for ear deafening pounding bass.

LOL! I know what you mean. I still have a pretty loud system from when I was younger and it is definitely affecting my hearing. My wife won't let me use it as an excuse for not listening to her though.
