    Going back to a 15" just something about those Sp4 v2/Neo 4.7s that keep calling me. I'll miss this box for damn sure, it's too bad ass. Then Ill be content, no more chasing numbers. Because I'll be broke with the upgrades I was planning to make, just not worth it in the long run.

    Deadener should be here Friday. I doubt I'll get any work done since there is a car show in town this weekend but I want to do something. I will mount DSP and try to get the ground side of the Big 3 done sometime this week.

    I finally got rid of all the rattles from both overhead consoles, bass sounds so much better. Now just tracking down the ones in the trunk since my subs are rear firing now.

    After installating my new interior panels, I decided to protect them from the elements. I used JB Weld super glue to attach foam pads to the ends of my horn bodies.

    You are never too old, go for it. I never wanted to go this big but I'm not having any regrets right now. It's crazy how my front stage keeps up with the bass and sounds amazing while doing so.

    Volkswagen sent me a few parts in this big ass box haha. Finally getting around to replacing some panels that scratched and dinged up by the shop this past summer.
  7. Yes I would collapse it for sure, no point in keeping it the way it is if there is no recent content or traffic. Just my .02

    Wiring is complete for the relocation of the pop trunk button and the speaker is back installed on the door pod.

    Started a new project today and I'm almost finished, I'll complete it tomorrow. I'm working on the pop trunk button relocation since the shop didn't even attempt to do it when he built my doors. There will be a gap that's temporary until I get to my friend's cnc machine to make a mounting ring for it to hide the gap in the panel.

    Thanks man I appreciate it, this is by far my best enclosure and I freaking loved the all white one but it stood out way to much. This blends so much better and is just all around beautiful. I will be getting rid of that Odyssey AGM Group 31 battery and will be saving either 69 or 61 lbs. by switching to Lithium. The Odyssey weighs 77.8 lbs., each Lithium battery weighs 8 lbs. My box builder told me to start with one XS power Titan 8 as it is more powerful than both of my batteries (underhood and trunk). If I need more I'll upgrade to two in the future. My rear driver's side suspension will love me in the run with the weight reduction.

    Speaker connects outside the enclosure.

    It's hard to get good pictures with the trunk light because it's so damn bright, but in person it's perfect. The entire interior of the enclosure is covered in blue light. I'm glad I didnt pay for the LEDs I usually get installed in the enclosure because I never use them anyway. 20221104_115949.mp4

    I will take some night shots one day soon, as much as I loved the white enclosure with the blue lights it stood out way too much at times. I didn't want it covered in bed liner again so I went back with the traditional carpet look and it came out fantastic.

    This enclosure turned out bad ass, I even had my builder make a matching beauty board to keep the enclosure in place.

    Had to clean up the wiring some since it's exposed but can barely be seen, separated power/ground from RCA signal wire. Y'all know I'm OCD about wire management especially if I can see it.

    Used this ammo to hold these volt meters in place while the double-sided tape adheres to the panels.

    Hole cut for cat-5 cord for Sundown bass knob/volt meter.

    Permanently mounted the cars' main voltage meter with double sided tape, looks damn good if you ask me.

    I needed to clear my mind so I worked on the car, got two things accomplished. I figured out how to remove this side panel to get access to my gear box area in my center console. I moved the USB cord coming from my radio from the passenger side where the shop installed it, to the driver side for ease of use. I also made a permanent spot for my car's main volt meter which monitors my up front voltage. I'm working on a spot for my Sundown amp bass knob/volt meter next. The volt meter will cover the factory USB port since it is no longer needed, hence why I drilled a hole in the housing to feed the wire. I'll use double sided tape to hold it down tomorrow once I clean the area with alcohol.
