Default 2001 Mazda Tribute build

So this is a fairly budget build, going in my 2001 Mazda Tribute. Only putting subs in the back, and new head unit, running stock speakers off the HU. I may upgrade my front stage eventually, but the stock comps will do until I have the funds for something else. So here's what's going in.

HU: Alpine CDA-9886
Subs: 2 12" Diamond Audio D3
Sub Amp: Sundown Audio SAE-1200d
Box: 40 ft^3 @ 32hz
Wiring: Kicker 1/0, Audison RCA's
2nd Battery: to be decided

Just gotta install the port, glue on top, glue on 2nd baffle for back side of box amp will be on, and lots of sanding along the way. I want to wait to put on the top until the subs get here so I'm sure it will all fit with the port and whatnot.

Also if anyone has figured out the easiest way to get to the alternator on a mazda tribute, help would be much appreciated. I'd like to do the big three but am unable so far because of the placement of the alt.

Well I decided I'm gonna change my tuning to around 33-34hz so the port will be shorter so i can do it facing up.

Got top and back 2nd baffle glued on, port hole cut, top reinforced with some screws, and inside sealed with caulk. Still got a lot of sanding to do, and need to cut out top holes and paint.



Also my black 1/0g, ring terminals, and 10g speaker wire came today. So I did the one part of the big 3 that I could. Hopefully my blue 1/0 will be here by monday when I plan on doing the rest of the big 3 with my friend. It's gonna require a bit of disassembly to get to my alt.

Got my dash kit and wiring harness today. Wow that mazda dash and radio player are a ***** to get out. But got my 9886 in there now. Took apart the whole center console to run the ipod cable to my center compartment. Also ran my RCA to the back. Came out very clean so far.

Got the big 3 done today in 1/0g. Took a bit of work, had to take off tire and half axle and a bunch of other stuff to be able to get at the alt. Also ran power line through firewall. Finished painting the box and screwed in port. Also my amp and battery came today. Just waiting on the subs now.
