Ive been working at this for a long while and i have a bit left to do but here's what ive got so far. Opinions wanted.

Image

View from back seat

Image

4 Channel Amp

Image

Mono Amp

Image

Sub Box

Image

Whole Boot

I like the way its come up it sounds pretty good but i have one problem. My headlights dim pretty badly. I have an optima yellow top battery running this and i am running 2 gauge cables from the mono amp and 4 gauge to the 4 channel. I have 0 gauge running to the distribution block. Should i get a capacitor?

yeh dude check out the earth for the mono amp and battery...make sure theres plenty of contact and as bare to the metal as possible...cabling wont be a prob as you have way more than enough capacity there for your needs....a top end battery and you should also have a 100amp alternator so wont be him either.

thanks for your help guys turns out i mustn't have sanded the earth for the mono amp but all others were done so it now works like a treat and also i recorded a 132.3dB today and the system hasn't been tuned properly yet so im pretty happy! I was aiming to get around the 130 mark once tuned.

Here are the pics of the meter showing the 132.3!
