Chithead's 2010 Dodge Ram build log - new and improved!
Well, after just a few different setups, we're going with this one and sticking to it.

Morel Hybrid Ovation II 6 component set - using the passive crossovers on each front channel of the amplifier
Morel Ultimo SC 12 subwoofer - single 4-ohm voice coil bridged from the back two channels of the amp
Zapco Reference 1000.4 providing the power
Clarion DRX9255 being the brains of it all

Going to take deadening quite a bit further, and also take what I learned with the wiring from the previous install a few steps more.

Also working on something creative for the dash, and still contemplating the amp rack/subwoofer enclosure.

A few pictures of the Morel comps for those that are curious:

Starting on the rear wall:

Combination of tractor trailer patch tape to cover all the holes, and then FatMat:

My father-in-law has all this rubber laying around. Apparently they spread it down before spraying on foam roofs - It gave me an idea.

Cleaned up a piece of it this morning:

Relocated the ground wire:

Applied some butyl rope:

And voila:

We'll see if that mat does any good at blocking the road noise. I will be constructing a new back wall to house the amp/subwoofer/behind the seat storage.

If it does any good, pretty sure it will be making it's way to both doors, and maybe to the floorboard.

Sweet Daniel! Glad to see some more R&R of equipment! It's been a while! :)

Looking good sir! Hopefully that rubber will do the trick.

I hope it does work out Dr. J - our MANY MANY conversations about the deadener really had my curiosity up, I figure what the heck, if it doesn't work, I'm out about $14 for the butyl rope.
