I dont have the subwoofer yet, enclosure was spur of the moment and Im very happy with the outcome. I still have the US Acoustics Mike amplifier for sub duty till I purchase a bigger amplifier next year. 

Front Stage amplifier is undecided. I have (2) SSA 6.5" Evil mids and (2) SB Acoustic SB29RDCN-C000-4 tweeters in hand, just needs to be installed. 

All wiring is in hand, alternator still undecided, batteries need to be purchased as well. Tint is another thing on the to do list.

All main power and ground wires are 2/0 welding cable, wire for amps are 4gauge knu wire. Sub amplifier wires will get upgraded when more power is purchased later down the road. Im undecided on keeping the factory radio or installing a new bezel and buying a double din h/u or 80prs.

Temporary ground wire and distribution block for trunk, sanded down to metal and covered in plasti dip. Once I get an AGM battery for the rear after I upgrade the subwoofer amplifier, it will be replaced with a frame ground.

That rounded box is beautiful !

My box builder tried that on my last box, but only on the length, not on the sides like yours. That is a great idea for my next box, someday.

Good luck for the build.

Yeah man I was totally shocked with the box design, I thought it was going to be a normal rectangle enclosure. 

 

Thanks man

I told myself I wasnt going to take any panels off or run any wires on this car and just let a shop do it. Luckily I found some DIYer YouTube videos and made it happen.  Power wire is ran, but not hooked up to the front battery yet, waiting to replace front battery soon. Factory battery came stock with an AGM but rather get a new one just to be on safe side since its 3 to 4 years old.

Fi Sp4 v2 was ordered last night, now I just sit here and twiddle my fingers till it gets here. I finally decided to swap the factory unit with an aftermarket h/u, processor will either be a JL Audio TWK88 or DD Audio DSI-1.

 

Im slowly making some progress fellas, bear with me.

Dont know why I didn't think of covering my power wire run from front to back under the hood. Looks much better without the red jacket being visible.

I agree. Love the "stealthy factory" look. Nice work.

      A brief introduction to the all new SSA Demon, but first a farewell to its predecessor. 
           Our very long running SSA Dcon has ridden off into the sunset, or at least taking a breather.  The SSA Dcon was our second subwoofer model we ever launched.  At the very beginning, we had the Icon and as it gained traction we saw there was a need for a pure SQ sub of more modest power rating than that the Icon.  So in early 2008, the first SSA Dcon was launched.  (The Xcon followed shortly after).  That being said, the Dcon was almost an immediate hit, with a long 2" copper coil (rarity to have one made in the USA) triple stack motor, rear vent.  The Dcon was very affordable, well made, quite efficient, clean across the entire range, and flexible with enclosure demands.  It is interesting as there are some SSA Family members who swear by their Dcon and will not give it up ever.  (It even became a favorite of some of the home audio crowd).  All that being said, the Dcon evolved a bit for its second generation, we made a leap forward in motor force moving to what is best described as a scaled down Xcon motor, with a large single slug, solid pole, and deeply bumped back plate, while beefing up the suspension and leads.  We were able to bring the power handling up 33% while not hurting the sound that made the Dcon successful.  There was a stretch of a few years, before we ran out of stock, that the SSA Dcon 12 was our all time best selling subwoofer.  So its existence was very important to SSA.  Well with changes in the market (read:customer demands and amps getting much cheaper), as well as sky rocketing material costs, building the Dcon in the USA no longer was an option, so production stopped early 2017 for both the Dcon (and Gcon) and inventory ran out later that year. 
           Late last year, due to the long lay off with out the Dcon (and Gcon), we started development of an updated Dcon at a new build house.  The quality and performance of our SSA Evil1 tweeters were above our expectations, so we decided to send more production to that same build house.   As we saw that the market slowed overall for modest power rated subs due to power getting cheaper and people wanting higher power handling subs, so the market began to really start heating up in the 500 - 1200 watt range, I knew we needed to address it.  There is an 8" model developed, but it will not make it this first production run.  
           The new model had to handle more power and have more xmax while not sacrificing the balanced and clean sound the Dcon had established for nearly a decade.  That meant larger motor, larger coil, more suspension, larger leads, thicker cone, taller surround, etc.  In the end, all of the changes that happened to the over all design, we could no longer call it a Dcon.  In sticking with the theme of the Evil, a model name that has become so well known, while respecting the Dcon, the Demon name was selected.  The Demon is a great blend of the previous Dcon and Xcon, both in design and appearance.  In prototype testing, the SSA Demon thrived smaller to mid-sized ported and mid-sized sealed enclosures.
      Quick SSA Demon stats:
      2.5" copper coil Aluminum former Aluminum Shorting ring Solid pole, non-vented bumped back plate Large single slug motor Pressed pulp cone Tall roll surround Push terminals Dual Nomex progressive spiders Stitched tinsel leads Large dome dustcap I will list T/S specs and enclosure recommendations shortly.  We are very excited about the SSA Demon as it bringing back to our line up a pure sound quality subwoofer that will be affordable, while still having the characteristic SSA warmth and output.

      Hey guys manzkea back at it again! Lol. Finally got some equipment in. Excited to finally get this project I’ve had in mind for a while rolling . Gonna attempt a blow through in my single cab 2001 ford ranger long bed. Gonna make pods for the doors to house the 6.5s and replace the stock one with a 6.5 or if possible an 8” driver. All powered off the ssa ic150.4.  As for subs I’ll be using a 15” sp4 v2 I got from a friend for a deal. A taramps 5k will be used to push it.
      Unfortunately the evil mids I wanted was unavailable in 4ohms. So I went with these prvs.
       
      Well I’ll I’ll be updating this as I get it going. Possibly next week or so, really busy with work at the moment. Well here’s a pic of some goodies the mail man dropped off.  Cheee. 
       
       Btw got something extra special in those two ssa looking boxes behind the ranger gear. But that’s on the back burner at the moment.
