center console mods

A couple of months ago I decided to update my audio equipment! I was running all Rockford Fosgate for my mids and highs. Rockford p400x4 (400 watts rms @2ohms [100x4]) powering 2 punch pro component sets and a pair coaxial speakers in the rear. It sounded good but was time for an upgrade. I moved the 6.5" rockford punch pro's the the rear deck which i had to make a template for so they would fit in the factory 6x9 speaker holes. I decided on steering away from Rockford Fosgate despite the quality of their products simply because there are other brands out there with equal or better quality for a better price. I went with a Crescendo Audio S4 (880 watts rms @2ohms [220x4]). I also put Fi Car Audio N7 (7") midrange speakers in the front doors and had to remake the template that I had originally made for the rockford speakers, and Crescendo audio 5.25" component sets in the center console (images attached). These component sets came with 2 crossovers, 2 tweeters and of course 2 5.25" midrange speakers. While doing this I completely ripped everything out of the car and sound deadened the entire surface with Sky High Car Audio (SHCA) 80mil sound deadener. I previously had a Crescendo Audio BC2000d (2250 watts rms @13.8v @1ohm) (and stable down to .5ohm) powering a Fi Car Audio BLv2 15" subwoofer (rated 1500watts [very conservatively rated as I played it on 2k+ watts for over 2 years]). I upgraded my mono block to a Twisted Sounds 3.5k which will be powering (2) Fi BLv2 12" subwoofers. The Twisted Sounds 3.5k is a very underrated amp, owner manual states 4500 watts rms @14.4v @1ohm and amp dyno videos show it doing nearly 5000 watts certified @1ohm and I will be running it at a .5ohm. Electrical is stout with 1 singer 300amp HO alternator, and 2 XS Power batteries! I am currently working on the box for the 2 12's and will keep you guys posted. If anybody would like to see more pictures of the build check out my garage or shoot me a reply on this thread!
