Default Project ZZ

Ive had this one going on some other forums figured I would swap it over to here as well. Its coming along slowly but surely.

Im starting a new project for my zx2. I was hezitate to start the build log because i know its going to take a long time because im only working on it on the weekends. But last weekend i got the whole interior ripped out to start the custom fab work and then do some damp pro and spectrum and then today while figuring out placement of the speakers i ran into a lil delima. Which ill explain more later.
As for whats going into it I have...
Front stage
Active 3 way component setup containing
4 6 1/2" whip audio mid ranges
2 earthquake screamer tweets
2 8" fosgate p2's for mid bass
all controlled by the ma audio ma30eqx or maybe an audiocontrol I still need to get that.
Rear stage
passive 2 way component setup containing
2 6 1/2" Koda6 Mark II
2 MB Quartz tweets
2 MB Quartz crossovers
Subwoofer
Custom fiberglass 4th order bandpass enclosure containing
1 15" Crossfire BMF
Being powered by...
5 amps
front tweets- kicker kx200.2
front midrange- Aura Force 400-q-A
midbass- JBL GTO 601.1 II
rear stage- JBL BP 150.1
sub- Crossfire BMF 1000D
and signals from an alpine flip out IVA-D900
And yes this system will have proper wiring. Im running 2 runs of 1/0 from the front to the 3 rear batts (small genesis NP18-12BFR basically kenetik 600's), 4 gauge to all the amps, 8 gauge to the subs, 12 or 10 gauge to the mids, and 16 gauge to the tweets.
As for the damplifier im going with damplifier pro everywhere. just one layer. Then a layer of spectrum sludge on top of all that but the roof and trunk lid and then a layer of spectrum sludge under the cars floorboards.
Everything is going to be stealth installed and look semi-stock you wont know its not factory unless you have a good eye and know the car.
Ill shut up for now for pics
The car

trunk all out

now everything but the seats and dash

This is what my first system was before i decided to do a whole custom big system. just a nice little budget system.
I had 6 1/2 eclipse 3way coax in the front and 5x7 kenwood 2way coax in the rear and 2 10 mtx 200watt in a custom fiberglass face ported sub box in the trunk. I do go pretty big on the deck tho. Jensen flip out with all the acc. but i just wasnt happy with the laggyness of the gps and other acc. Here are some pics of the first setup.

Deck

subs (the box was no where near complete when this was taken)

You have a lot of work ahead of you... but should be worth it in the end.

Im finally home after a long day of driving. Yesterday I picked up my new seats and a car dolly a half hour away. Then I drove another 2 hours to check out my parts/new car. Then i loaded it up on the dolly and drove another 4 hours to drop it off at my dads. Then today I drove back home from my dads which was 3 1/2 hours because of traffic. I got home and unwrapped my seats. Man that was a PITA. Going to get the new car running so I can drive it while the spectrum sludge is curing for a week. Here are some pics of both of them. (sorry they suk im gettin a new camera soon as a bday present)

Looking good. Definitely going to sound better than the ZX-2 I drove a couple years back, that my little sister is currently driving. Plus at least you have the standard trans... I'll definitely be tuning in for more updates
