Default 04 Sebring completely self built

I completely built this thing from the ground up. I acquired an 18" RE XXX 05 model from a guy and rebuilt it myself to a 12". Used softparts from PSI(thanks Dave!). Got dimensions straight from Greg at RE. The box is 2.511cu ft ported at 35hz with a PSA of 14.5sq inches. built out of 3/4" mdf with 2" 45 bracing in all the corners, used bolts and wingnuts for terminals and routed both coils to the back so i can change configuration without removing the sub. Amp is a Sundown SAZ-1500d (Thanks Jacob!) which wouldn't be possible if Jacob wasn't the coolest MF there ever was! Batt is a beat up yellow top I got from My friend aturcotte. So alot of this woudn't have happened if it wasn't for careful planning and support from some local people. I know it aint 4-15's with 7k or anything but im really proud of it. It was the first time i ever reconed a sub and the first time I actually did a complete build in my OWN car and it sounds beautiful. Ill post numbers when I put em up but im guessing high 30's low 40's with the windows up Ive helped everyone else for 10 years now and figured it's time for myself so..... please check out the attachments below for the pics. Hope yall enjoy!

I do love the 1500! Long story how I came about it but its brand new. just installed today for the first time. I like the setup, but it seems kinda peaky in my car. I didn't take into account the cars freq. alittle adjustment on the HU and it was better. Sub is still not broke in so that might be some of the peakiness too. I ran 20 and 30hz tones on it for a little bit, say 4-5 hours total before install but thats not enough time to loosen it up. Would LOVE to have 2 of those XXX's but i cant find a motor or another 12, and im not gonna tear apart a perfectly good 15 or 18 to make one.

Not really, I've been doin it for some time, but it's the fact that it's my own car now and not everyone elses.
