this will be a thread consisting mainly of installs we do for customers, I will do my best to get the installers to take pictures of every install and then Ill post them on here.

This is one we did last week, I built the box and one of the guys wired up the customers amp, crossover, capacitor, and line level, all of which are hidden behind the box.

    looks good.  my only worry would be the amplifier misbehaving in the summer due to thermal issues.  Been down that road before  :(  post more!

      We mounted the amp on rails, so there is about a half inch gap under the amp for ventilation.

                      You should try and find pics of the yellow S2000 install that Dave and I did there yeaaaaars ago with full Boston Acoustics gear.

                      I might have one or two, I'll see what I can dig up.

                            Not so much yet, I've played with them in the store, and they seem really cool, they have nice features and smooth operating. The meastro compatability sound really cool and so does car play, I cant wait till the software is available. if you have any more questions please post them in our vendor section.

                              Swapped an amp for a customer, wanted more bass, so we used a Hertz HP3001. Check out that clean wiring job by Gord and Zohar.

                                        In looking at this closer, it appears as if the sound deadening material was installed over top of the vapour barrier.  ???????

                                            Customer Quote of the Month... "I installed the starter exactly the way you explained to me. But it seems like there is no power going to the unit? I don't want to make it permanent until I know it works, so I neatly left the wires tucked under the dash for you guys to double check for me, I will hide it a bit better when you guys are done."
                                            We agreed to take a look, and this is what we found... And just so its clear, that thick red wire that's not attached to anything, is the power wire. The installers lol'd pretty hard, so did everyone else we showed. We ended up giving the guy some pointers, because the installers were not willing to attack this mess.

                                              Just what I said lol.  Its clear the installer applied sound deadener on top of the vapour barrier.  Stated another way, the vapour barrier was not removed - so the deadener could be installed on the bare sheet metal (as its supposed to be) and then trim the vapour barrier around the speaker opening and reseal it.

                                                He cut the vapour barrier away from the spot we put the deadener on, and then re sealed the barrier after, its not sealed in the picture though, you are right.
