Finally! Box is in/done/finished/playing. It's muuuuch louder than the last box.

Best of all----------->Stereo progress is Trainhorn progress.
The extra battery is installed and 1/0 ran to the bed along with miscellaneous wires.

Back to the horns-

Uhh, if I read this thread, correctly, (and I'd like to think I did), this project commenced in March 2010 and you just now got the box done?

I know detailed-oriented projects take time (heck, my on board air project is going on 10 months), so I'm just asking, not mocking or trying to needle. The reason I find it worth inquiring about is because three years is at least one generation (and sometimes two generations) of technology -- meaning speakers, amps, and the like have all improved in that window of time. Are you planning gear upgrades?

Yeah, it's the 2nd go around for the box. The 1st one sucked.
I hear ya on the equipment. I actually ditched the Alpine Imprint and bought an RF 3Sixty.3

If I bought new stuff today, I would buy completely different equipment. But I'm just glad it's done & I can move on.

Melted fuseholder.

I used Knukonceptz Kolossus 1/0ga. I called them during the planning stages about the amp load and wire size. They said it would be fine at that length. I guess they were right - the wire is fine. The fuseholder wasn't up to the task.

So, this spring I'm adding 2 runs of 1/0ga. One to the rear battery - one to the bed for the compressors. Then I can run smaller fuses on each.

Thanks for the replies fellas. I think I am gonna reduce the size of TV down to 48" and go with the new Yamaha receiver and a speaker "package". I will post up some pictures of the house and the system when I get it all finished up. Should be around the end of the month.
