Why aren't more people posting pictures in this thread? I looked at a few, but many links in the op list contain nothing and need pruned.

I keep getting redirected, but here goes one more time...

My last ride:

MOSFET'S 1999 Subaru Forrester
http://www.cardomain.com/ride/235969...baru-forester/

HERE IS MY CURRENT RIDE. I bought EVERYTHING, and I mean EVERYTHING short of speaker wire, ONE 9 foot interconnect designed for RGB video (I just don't use the red), and fuses, ALL ON Craig's LIST. A grand total of $340, everything I bovght worked PERFECTLY:
http://www.cardomain.com/ride/408322...mazda-protege/

For being DRASTICALLY the cheapest system I ever built (I don't EVER remember buying an Alpine HU for less than $300), it is one of the best sovnding systems I have ever bvilt, and I believe it's actvally THE best sovnding system I have ever bvilt, or have ever owned.

My System

I wanted to share my setup, because it's the best I've ever had.






Behind my subwoofer, a Rockford Fosgate T800-4AD powering 4 Kicker KS 6.5 components and one 8-inch Rockford Fosgate Punch PPS4-8.

The little Kicker CX600.1 sits off to the side, powering my sub with 675 Watts RMS. Can't go any higher, my alternator couldn't take it.







This bare metal plate serves as an excellent grounding spot. 8th Gen Civic Si owners take note. You can only see the fuse for the Rockford amp. The fuse to the Kicker is behind a carpet panel, as is the distribution block.






Pioneer Avic 5100NEX. Does everything I want it to, though I definitely would have preferred the pricier Kenwood Excelon.






These are my three rear deck speakers. Having no sawzall or jigsaw, I hacked together an MDF baffle decent enough, but you can see where I used dynamat to completely seal my too-wide inner diameter. Terrible picture, but I'm including it anyway.





Liberal trunk dynamat. Big difference in sound inside the car. Terrible buzzing outside the car remains mostly unchanged.






The crown jewel, a Sundown SA-12 in a ported box tuned to 36Hz, 1.7 net cubic feet. Yes, that is a prefab box. Yes, I plan to start building my own.

This single sub blew away my brother's dual Sony Xplods at identical wattage last weekend. It was no contest. Louder, just as accurate, and way, way deeper. This system is equally at home playing bass-heavy electronic as it is classic rock or 90's rock.
The mids and highs stand their ground against the sub bass onslaught. Very well rounded from beginning to end.

As for the trunk vibrations, you need to source out the offending panels and wedge something between them. Yes, that may mean that you have to remove some dynamat to get to it, then restick it. Play some bass, get your *** out there and listen to where the buzzing is coming from.

I have a main fuse within 18" of the battery. Coming off the distribution block, I have two more fuses, one for each amp, within 18" of the distribution block. You can see one of these in the pics (the Kicker). The other is behind a carpet panel.

Ok. Odd you'd use an inline fuse on an install like this in that situation. Most would just use a fused distribution block. Glad you got it though.

Yeah, I've got about half a dozen of those inline fuses laying around, so in they went!

Some previous builds and stuff of mine. Working on a new one now.














I still have yet to ever open this box. lol



And why is this pic of an arcade cab here? Because it's actually using a car audio amp and speakers inside, I just never got around to getting pics of it. It has an old Rockford Fosgate Punch 60ix from 93 and JL Audio speakers. The speakers are mounted under and behind the marquee, the amp is in the bottom area inside. The amp is powered by a 600 watt PSU from an old PC build. Just something I built for nostalgia and thought I'd share.
