Original plan was to hang the amps on sub box and mount Power distribution & Inverter under the seat:





This plan was abandoned once the decision was made to physically downsize the amps.

Replacement amps:



Speakers were replaced with a couple set's of JL's going here:



Mounted on these:



Tweeters later got switched out with a pair of Alpine's...the JL's could rip your eardrums out from 50'....

Reworked the under seat area to hold amps and processor plus fab'd up a mount for the rear wall to hold power distribution & Inverter:




Now that everything has a home, time to start the finishing....

Sub Box Mod

Before Priming I decided I had to do something with the side of the box that was originally slated to have amps on it....so...



Played around with some LED's
