Default Astro Van wall build help

I will be starting an all out SPL wall build in about a week for a customer. I would like to know all tricks and tips regarding these vehicles!

SYSTEM:
4 Kicker Warhorses
4- 18" Kicker Solo X
16 XS Power D3100s (or Kinetik if they sponsor)
This will be all out spl and that all! no speakers anywhere planned currently. Concrete on the floor and Lexan Windows!! I need to no what has worked for others. Any help is appreciated! also a tuning freq that is good for the astro vans for peak spl). Im planning on doing 40 cubes (without port disp) and 1200 sq" port per kickers recomendation. any thoughts or ideas? yes i no kicker sucks haha, this is what the customer has and wants. He shot down the idea of running sundown (i tried to get him into a brand i carry)

Wow. SuperMod, huh? Or whatever your org calls that class. I imagine a lot will depend on the cabin mods and amount of concrete and stuff. I think Craig Butler runs a supermod Astro, but I don't know how much info he'd want to share. Lol. Or anyone who has that much work into a vehicle, for that matter.

You may be able to find him on Termpro. I know he stops by there every now and again, especially if people are talking about Extreme builds. There are also several very in depth Extreme class builds that you could look through.

He said the customer picked the equipment, but I do agree. And I didn't think Kicker was in the business of taking care of competitors anymore. Maybe ask Steve Mick about that one

any contact for steve? I pushed and pushed for him to get into 4 sundown NSv2 18s and 4 NS-1 amps, customer is in love with kicker, customer has money and products, so im not complaining too much. even thou kicker is not a brand i sell it will still help my shop by showing we dont mess around haha. I did get him into XS Power batts, the van is from me, and its at my descression on the build. so even thou it is kicker im calling the shots on install wiring and batts

u should take responsiblity and let the person know u are building this for that even if you do this perfect they still arent going to be any where near competitive with the supermods that are out there.

if hes serious about competing.
