    Well i finally got the ball rolling on my audio build. Should be in and running by end of next weekend. Heres a list and some pics of what ive done so far and will be updating as i go along. It's not intended to be a crazy over the top system but more than enough for my daily grind and budget. Feel free to criticize or comment.

    Whats going in:
    - kicker tcvt 10" 400w rms
    - kicker zx200.2 70rmsx2 (front components)
    - punch 400s- 400w rms (old faithful for the sub, had it for years)
    - alpine spr-17s components
    - pac 4-channel loc
    - kicker 6ft rca signal wires
    - kicker 4/8ga dual amp kit
    - stinger 16ga speaker wire
    - stinger 12ga speaker wire

    Progress:

    Drilled out the pass side child seat anchors and installed dynamat

    Cut and fitted the sub box. This box is temporary until i get the system in and functioning. I will be making my own ported box to fit into that entire space similar to the jl steathbox.

    Soldered color coded wires to the pac loc. The other side will be going soldered to a reverse harness/radio harness so i can unplug and remove everything without hacking up the original harness.

    love the way you mounted your amps. The thought crossed my mind but didnt want to cut up those bins incase i ever sell the truck. Im just going to mount them under my seats since both amps are relatively small. I havent had any progress so far this week due to weather, looks like saturday and sunday is my best bet.

    i was in such a hurry on sunday i forgot to take pics of the mids finally mounted in the doors. I have to take the panels off again soon so eventually i will get a pic. Its up and running just need to tune it. Although i wasnt planning on it, eventually i will be getting a double din navi unit only cause i wont be paying full price.
