Started installing my system finally......

Since i got rid of my 06 GT Convertible after it was broken into.My truck is getting the attention now.I putting in 4 Phoenix Gold Ti 12D4, each pair powered with 1 Phoenix Gold Ti 2500 watt monoblocks and 1 Ti 1600.5 powering 4 pairs of Ti 6.5 Elite components(as soon as they come in the warehouse).There will also be 2 slim 12" Phoenix Gold behind the rear seat for "normal listening". The rest will be changed to the Elite line in a few months. The box is a blow through design with each sub getting about 1.52 cu. ft. lighted with blue neon rope, ported into the back of the cab and 1" plexy rear panel. All the RCA's are Stinger 8000 series,batteries are 3 SP1500D, PAC 200 amp isolator, and all Stinger connectors,blocks to the Stinger 0 gauge.I migh put a Stinger 50 farad cap if theres room.The doors will 'glassed with 2 pairs of the 6.5's.The head unit is a Pioneer X910-BT(that i dont like).

You use a accordion boot, its the same thing they used to use back in the day when you pull the back window out of a truck when you have a shell.

Theres 2 channels that "pinch" onto the bed and cab sheet metal and a accordion rubber inbetween. It allows movement and expands up to about 4".

Cool! I wonder how that is going to sound. I have never done that kind of install, but we always suggested it to folks who wanted big bass in their trucks. I think they shyed away from getting a large hole cut in the cab wall.
