Subwoofer Setup

just installed these 2 10" subds with 1200watt amp and power capacitor.. waiting on new 4awg power cable so i can run it out of the way where it cant be seen.. that looks tacky like it is but only temporary..

yeah probably would knock down some **** for sure.. feels like getting kicked in the chest.. almost loud enough to hurt..

and yeah it will look better once my wire gets here in a few days and i find some of that stuff the boxes are covered in so i can go over those boards the amp is mounted on.. and thinking of redoing that strap in the center with a piece of wood and covering that with the stuff too

Getting kicked in the chest is having that 1200 watts not as max power but RMS. Mine feels more like getting kicked in the head though.

so i have a question regarding wire sizes.. that red power cable in the picture is 5+ GA and i just bought 25' of 4 awg cable and it apears to be thinner than the 5+.. wtf i was expecting thicker wire not thinner.. ill post pics here shortly

and my friend has two of the square 15" kickers.. solobaric i think.. something like that with a 2,000watt amp and it hurt i had to tell him turn it down.. and im all for loud *** speakers but not into pain lol..

I had 2 12" Kicker Comps set up like that a while back. The sound was killer but it got to me after a while cause I was a sissy lol. Go loud or go home I reckon.

Setup looks good boss, especially after it gets cleaned up!

looks really good, makes me want some subs haha. I like how they don't stick out past where the old seats did. thats key for me. I hate when subs take up a ton of space in an already cramped cab. Nice work.
