Default davidrforbus 05 chevy cobalt rebuild. Xs power, Crescendo, Obsidian.

Been buying equipment for the past few months now, Figured its about time for a build log. It's been about a year since I've have any music in the car No tweets, No mids, not even a radio. Now since its almost time for some local comps to come up I'm going to start throwing this together.
List of equipment.
2 Obsidian OA-12s
1 bc 2k
AQ comp set
Hifionics titan 2-channel
XS Power XP3000
Stock battery(Might upgrade to a XP replacement later)
Stock Alt
Audio technix 1/0 and 4awg
Knu OFC 8awg
Cadence 14 ga speaker and 4 channel RCA's
Shok 12 ga speaker wire
Alpine 9813 HU

Who wants some pics?

EDIT: I know this is a long thread with long periods between updates. If you go to page 15 and start there you'll see major updates.

I swear there is update and work being done lol. Last 6 pages should see lots of updates.

I would get rid of it and probably will but I just bought the damn thing back in august Hate to get rid of a basicly brand new battery. But if it makes my voltage go down then it will go bye bye.


Pics comming.

Eventually it will go cause I've heard a lot about mixing types of batteries as well but I've dropped a good bit of money in the past couple months lol So I'll probably just do a test with it and without it to see what my drop is and that'll determin wither it stays untill i get a good replacement for it or not.

watch the stray wires when soldering the radio... they can poke right through the tape and short... just a heads up (its happen to me now I make sure that its all smooth before taping it)
