    Here are the spec's:
    -eclipse AVN726E HU
    -eclipse SC6900 componants up front
    -eclipse SP6510 point source in the back

    Made the sub box my self and installed it also the amp rack, also did the whole back wall and under the seat with deadner and ensolite, got the local guru, excellent guy, to do all the wiring and install the speakers and deaden the doors.

    Sounds awsome, here is a few pics:[​IMG]

    Looks amazing, especially the SI sub and box. Well done. Let me know what you think of the SC6900 set, I am running the same speakers, and I am not particularly impressed with the tweeters yet.

    Thanks guys!!! was a lot of work but worth it in the end.

    I was told that it takes about 60 hrs break the speakers / sub in, I was hoping for a bit more clarity, but we will see in a few months when they loosen up a bit

    Once you get some time on that BM please let me know what you think. I'm very curious to know due to my own experiences and others. Also, how much is Nick selling those for now? The prices of Neodymium must be killing him unless he's switched to ferrite.

    So far i've been very impressed no problems at all, love the sound, the sound was a bit "tight" at first but has loosened up nicely.

    As for the price I had this sub sitting in my basement for a year lol, I got in on the second batch that Nick sold I received it in oct/10 so was the same price as the first batch.

    I have to redo the sub box in the spring and counter sink the sub into the box , I can't lower the back seat or it will rub on the sub.

    Did you have to cut the cubby hole where the amp is located any to make it fit?

    No i just built a little stand out of particle board that I glued in place with construction adhesive, there is a gab of about 1/8" on both sides of the amp to aid cooling.

    If you look at the bottom photo you can see that the stand is only glued to the side on the right not the left.

    Also you can barely see, the side on the right is only glued at either end to the cubby, I recessed the whole length exept for 1" at the end for airflow.

    The left side of the stand, in the bottom photo, does not touch at ; again for air flow.

    The 2 bottom pieces are glued the whole length, so far it's still rock solid and no issues with overheating.

    That looks good man. Any reason you choose the Infinity Amp? I've been thinking about the Alpine V70. I'm planning a similiar type system different speakers and all and I like hiding the amp like that. The Alpine amp wouldn't fit there though because it is wider and I'd probably have to put it under a front seat.

    topgun - the widest amp I've seen in under the rear seats is the Orion 2150 XTR, 8.5 inches. I'm guessing that's as wide as you can go without some major modifications back there. I just test fit my new Zapco Z150.4 (7.5" wide) and it fit like a glove with the black plastic removed.

    I just saw somebody else on the forum install one of these amps there, it was good price :$300, The reviews where good on it, and I didn't want to use up space behind the seat, and with the winters up here I would never put something under seats.

    I had never seen Zapco before their ST-5D amp is only 6.7" wide would fit nice in the cubby.
