Nice list... I haven't decided which way to go in my car. I still have my old school amp. I let go of my old school JLAudio W6 12" subs View attachment 787915

This was in the planning stage for a LONG time....almost 6 months before i pulled the trigger on the amp. Got the 6x9's for free so i dropped them in as a "why not" before anything lol.
My main goal is a SQL build. Crystal clear but 150w RMS per channel 😁

Awesome!!! I love this stuff, I think for me it's deciding which route to go. JLAudio makes a 13" sealed unit that fits in the trunk as an OEM subwoofer. Then the head unit is a whole different decision all together.

Well, the sub is a good start. Then you can upgrade your speakers as you see fit. For me, every system I build I want to try something new. I'll be running 3 amps when its all said and done: tweeter, interior and sub. Plus I'll be experimenting with a DSP, lightyears past ear-tuning with a 7-band EQ

Not bragging but i have no idea where i think up this crazy chit. Everyone else puts them in the doors or A-pillars....my dumbazz gets a 1lb tweeter and sticks it in the airvent 🤦‍♂️

I have the power/ground wires slated for this paycheck (along with a few random goodies) and i'll be grabbing more 3/4" birch ply to refloor my trunk and make the amp rack/truck/cabin divider. It'll be double-thick plywood to reduce vibration to the amps because i'm securing the sub directly to the divider

I had to run 0 gauge to a distribution block and 1 gauge to my Kicker amp, I don't remember what I used for my Pioneer amp

Gonna run 2/0ga from the battery to a dist.block, 4ga to the kenwood and soundstream, 8ga to my tweeter amp (probably a soundstream d100 II).

I don't play with power wires, oversize is king. I like my car not burny 🤣

Plus i'm probably gonna upgrade amps (look up taramps bass 3k and nemesis na-12h v.2) at some point and the less i have to run again, the easier it will be
