!!!!......It\'s ALIVE....!!!!! Stereo Installation Completed !!!! I just wanted to share my excitement with the list.....to Ryan, and PremBird, Esteban, LKJR, Triaged, and the others who have been following this thread.....which started out as a "Subwoofer Box Design" topic. The project kept growing and growing and I am happy to say that after close to 200 hours (yes HOURS) of labor, I was able to fire up the stereo for the first time late Friday afternoon. .....all I can say is !! WOW !! It is by far the most powerful system I have ever installed (1600 watts) and the most complex installation too (Over 500 feet of cabling, and many custom connectors, enclosures and mods).....but the sound is SOOOO sweet! Having so much power available gives it such an effortless sound quality.....it's hard to describe, but as you start cranking up the volume you never get the impression that the stereo is really working that hard to keep up. The speakers are still breaking-in so the sound will get even more "relaxed and natural over the next 40 - 50 hours or so, but it's already so great that I look for excuses to go driving just so I can listen to it. THANKS to everyone who has been following the thread and offering me encouragement. It has been a real labor of love to keep this project moving, and at times it seemed like it would never get finished.....Oh, and by the way it's NO CONTEST, I can definitely drown out the sound of my big block with music now......I was a little concerned that I'd never hear the music over the engine !!!! I will post the final sets of photos on Webshots so that you can get a sense of how the "complete" package went together... -Greg72 maybe I should call myself "Kilowatt K5" now?
