    These Rhyno RCAs seem to be dope so far, the connection is tight and the color scheme is real nice. They look perfect in their new home, thanks SSA.

    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'm trying to make it look as factory as possible and protect the wires for the alternator voltage regulator going into the engine bay.

    Bought some new RCAs from the SSA Store. The Audison one's are too bulky and just don't make my install look so appealing but otherwise they are great. The Stingers don't make good contact, if you turn them some or install them a certain why it drops some of the signal.

    Relays are here and I also bought new 20amp Bussmann fuses. This is how my Alternators voltage regulator controller is going to be wired up, all new components for a piece of mine.

    Haha yes sir, even on vacation I was putting in some wiring work while at the cabins.

    Getting the voltage controller knob and relay wiring done so the installer will have less work to do when the H/O Alternator gets installed at the shop. Excuse the dirty mats, going out of town soon and didn't have time to clean out the car. Still waiting on relays to be delivered.

    I decided to not do the SMD fuse blocks and stayed with Jims Machine Works, they got here in two days after ordering which I was surprised.

    Quick install in a 2017 Mercedes Benz C Class with the SSA Amp, sub is bridged on two channels. Other two channels will be used for interior speakers in the future.

    Thanks man and I absolutely think it looks killer as well. But as much as I love it especially with my trunk light. My next enclosure will be black with white aero port and white inside. This white just isn't as durable as the black bedliner and it gets dirty just by touching it. Even when you wash your hands, that oil from the skin shows. I really appreciate it, I think you gave me some of the idea before about either a white box or a white port. If it wasn't in this build log, it might of been in my Sonata build log.

    Got tired of the box sliding around and decided to go this route.

    So far it seems that I have eliminated the basic rattles inside the car. The rear over head light console should be quiet now. I added one layer of Soundskins speaker foam ring dampening. If you look closely between the black squashed dampening, you will see a black plastic trim piece that is attached the top side of the headliner. That was smacking against the roof of the car. This deadener is about 1 inch thick give or take and thickness is perfect, I had to jam it in there but it works great.

    I loved that thing man when I was car shopping, but for what I got the Passat at that time brand new it was a no brainer. But everyday when I drive by one of those I drool. Dope ride for sure and thanks man.

    I didn't apply it my box builder did, but from looking at it. It doesn't seem like he had issues nor did he mention any.

    Yes sir it is, now I'm upset my battery box doesn't match the enclosure. I will be getting photos tonight with the enclosure's led lights playing.

    Updates I'm still waiting on Stevens Audio MB-8 2ohm mids to get back in stock then I will send the car to the shop to have them fabricate my Sony 8" H/U in my dash and do my front doors with one pair of 8s in each door. Will be ordering SMD Fuse blocks for under hood positive wires and trunk's positive wires. All connections will be crimped with terminals. I have quotes from Stinger and Brand X for H/O Alternators, just trying to do research to see who to go with. Ive noticed voltage issues from factory as the weather gets warmer and have been following Euro Bass Girl and she gave me some ideas to mitigate that problem. I ordered a voltage regulator controller knob from Conventry Industries that I will install when the new alternator gets here.
