Well, I came up with a game plan. The durango has a storage box in the rear. I'm going to remove the jack/tools from there. I will make a foundation board and put the three amps in a line. I'll place some standoff legs on that board and put a second layer board which will hold the crossover, 1F Cap, and dist block. A nother set of legs will support a ceiling of plexi to allow viewing and will let the sub box rest over this same area- behind the 3rd row bench. Gonna start this tonight.

You don't think 4ga is good enough for 900W? I'll take some voltage measurements and will run a parallel 4ga if needed.

I may make my electronics cluster stack with peg-board, then air can get around. Will put some computer fans in there too.

My SubZone 2.0ft^3 per-side, dual 12in box arrived today. 84 freaking pounds y'all! Damn! The thing is insane! It certainly will not fit behind the 3rd row like I hoped. Oh well, will have to lay the row down and take out the box one those rare occasions when we need the passenger room. Crazy big, I can't believe it. This thing is 3/4in board too, just wow.

I started to craft my amp board. All three of the polk-momo amps will fit end-to-end in the utility area in the back. I removed the door/cover. I'll have a plexi cover over my two-story components stack.

Working around my family and social schedule, this is taking me quite a long time. Progress:

Have amp board built with three amps in a line, then a second platform and the crossover and capacitor. Need to make the cover. The wires are run for the dist block and RCAs. I have the 6.5in woofer in each door. New tweets in the front corners. One tweet is done in the rear headliner- the other will be done tonight. Power wire and all speaker wires laid out.

One trick I had to figure out: For these infinitys, I had to re-drill the install ring "european adaptor" so this ring would screw onto the factory spacer. Then reinstalled the spacer assembly onto the door.

So, the headunit is due now and to finish all the 12ga speaker wire runs. The front door wiring has been a hassle. It seems the woofer and tweeter run on the same signal- that's dumb. Will try to run the two 12ga wires thru the door. It's difficult to work around the drivers kick panel area and ebrake.

Oh, then I gotta do the LCD screens. My friends are giving me a lot of hassle since this has been a crazy project. haha.

My system is done. It's insane. I can't be in the vehicle past vol=35. The subs make your ribs shake. The rearview mirror is about to fall off and makes too much damn noise when it's shaking- any tricks for that one?

I'll get pics asap. I need to finish the cover for the amp board.

Oh, point to note:
Audiobahn RCA cables (Specialist Grade) suck the big one. With minimal handling, two out of three patch cords were defective and while removing em, it was a simple little tug and the heads broke right off the wires. The rubber ends of the cables look good, but are not attached to the heads. STAY AWAY.
