Default MCarmers Highlander Sundown Build

Alright ive had my truck together for a little bit now just been lazy and havent posted up pics of the build yet.

Vitveet from CA.com and myself did the build, I was pretty much there as a helping hand on my own truck.

I originally planned on doing 6 SA 15's on 1 Sundown SAZ4500 with a bunch of other stuff of course.

Ended up doing 4 SA 15's because at the time i didnt want to lose my backseat, and didnt have enough space for 6 in the cargo area, HELL dont even have room for 4 SA 15's there suffocated right now and the box isnt even tuned correctly.

Already plan on losing the backseat soon, building the truck up structurally like stripper pole, windhshield bracing, roof bracing, floor bracing and other things. Then Im going to get Teamnemesis DJ build me a wall behind the front seats for as many 15's as i can fit in the truck, that will determine how many more 4500's i get and how i split the subs up on the amps.
This will all be part of a different build later on, THIS SUNDAY DJ will be looking at my truck and telling me what my options are and what he can do to get this thing into the mid 150's or higher on music.

Sub box has 2 6x17long Aero ports and is roughly 7.5 cubes, sits in cargo area only. The REAR seats fold up and INTO the sub box...See pics.
This box is too small for 4 15's no way we could fit 6 15's, box is not what i want so going to redo the truck and lose the back seat to gain a ton of room.

Center console box holds the 2 new SA-8s V1.75's, powered by the DDC6B amp 550x2.... Box was way too big so to hold me over till the wall/clamshell whatever it happens to be gets done. I put a ton of expanding foam in the box to kill the itnernal space and increase the power handling on the SA8's and they actually play alot better now.

ONE OF MY ISSUES IS THE BOX IS NOT REALLY TUNED TO ANYTHING LOL. I was told by quite a few people the Aero ports are too close to the hatch so they arent doing anything. Also the box is WAY to small for the subs, and that the subs are cancelling eachother out because they are on different planes from eachother.
