Default Branham1127 Build Log, DC, American Bass

Well, I've been a member for quite awhile, usually my posts are just to bs or to give people advice. I decided i would finally make my own build log since I have had alot of the people I have sold to show interest in the plans I make for my truck. I tear down and re-build 3-4 times a year but I plan to make this a build that I'll keep for awhile. I have made more progress than the first set of pics I'm going to post show, but honestly I hate copying and pasting links so I'm gonna go at it kinda slow today and tomorrow. I started this about 2 months ago and was going to make a build log then, but I got WAY busy with work so I didn't make as much progress as I wanted to. Didn't want people begging for pics when I didn't have time to do anything to take pics of.

Sorry, enough of the rambling and onto some pics. First, the victim: 2003 Silverado Ext Cab

When I started this build, I had a toolbox with batteries in it and not the tonneau cover, but I didn't think to take a pic of the truck until tonight.
Equipment:


I'd like thank the good people at UPS for getting my wire spools to me in such good shape!

Need some power wire for the amp of course



Installed the tonneau cover to protect the amps and batteries

batteries that were isntalled in the toolbox
.
Some more wires run:

Nice mess of speaker wire that will be going to the bed:


Just to clear this up now, I realized in getlikeme's build log that the LLP was upside down, I will be flipping it over shortly lol.

I didn't get detailed pics of it, but I put damplifier pro on the inside and outside of all doors and installed speaker tweaker pads.


Mounting crossovers


Came across these while surfing the web, figured I'd try them out so my speakers aren't muffled behind grills.


Damn, not enough depth

Easy fix

Can't leave them bare, that would look tacky

I also laid the carpet back down because I didn't want to roll it up and laying flat it takes up most of my garage floor




Well I got carried away and posted all the pics anyway lol, I will start by flipping over the LLP tomorrow and hopefully make some good progress finally.

Almost forgot another crucial piece of equipment that I will be using

Smart guy from FedEx brought them in on a dolly and set them just like this, I didn't take a pic of the side, but there is a sticker that says "this side up" and points to the side that you can see (so he set them both on their side)

Box inside of a box?

More cardboard


Styrofoam

Pretty


Size comparison?

.
Beautiful

Just for those that can't tell

Thanks , should be nice when its done... I've been without bass for quite some time, just glad I slowed down with work and will be able to start getting back on track... This truck has been parked in my driveway without seats in it for quite awhile now, fortunately I have a spare truck.

Thanks, I thought I picked some decent stuff . It sure is a good feeling to get all the boxes though. I keep my garage stocked with spools hung on the wall for when I do installs for other people. In this case, I will be using the whole roll so the spool isn't really a big deal. If it were for me to hang I'd be pretty pissed though.
