Alpine/Kenwood Stereo Install
 
Getting ready to start my stereo install. Can't wait to get this finished.
2 12" Alpine Type R's, box from Net Audio, Kenwood 7" components for front and back, Alpine MRX-M110, Alpine MRX-F65, XS Power D3400 battery for under the hood, Stinger 5 Farad Hybrid Cap, and plenty of stinger wire and accessories for the amps and big 3 upgrade. I also have the 100mil Sound Deadner from KnuConceptz. I already have the Kenwood DDX-719 and backup camera installed. I'll keep this post updated as my build progresses.

How is the NET AUDIO box sound with those 12's? Any issues with the box? How long did it take to get the box or do they custom make every box?

I'm still installing everything but hope to have the subs hooked up by this weekend. It took 3 weeks to get the box because each one is made to order.

I actually have one of the NET Audio boxes and it sounds awesome. I have two Dayton 12's with 1000 watt amp on them. Pounds pretty good. Every box is custom made to order.

Finished installing my new battery along with the big 3 upgrade. Took a little reworking due to the reverse polarity with the original battery but i think i turned out pretty good.

Installed the 7" components in the doors. I like these due to the extremely small crossover that is used.

Installed the RUX Knob for my Alpine amp in an easy to reach location.

Great post, I'll be following your progress. I'm looking to do something similar.

In your pics of the Stinger wires, what is the black box with the digital read out?

This is Stinger's 5 Farad Hybrid Capacitor. I know most people are against caps but i used a 1 Farad cap with my Fosgate 360a2 in my old car and it fixed my headlight dimming so figured i'd give this a try.

5 Farads? Dang. Do you have the 180 amp alternator? Or are you upgrading the alternator? That usually takes care of dimming.
