    Not sure how clean it sounds But I bet it's loud!!!! Gotta see the end install.. I just want to know what you did with 800 feet of 1/0 Ga? I've built many LARGE systems and never used that much even in Bigger cars...And I've worked on cars from Little Pinto with 1800 watts RMS to Blimps to Hellacaptors and boats..

    Hook up all the alternators/amps to batteries

    He'd need that. I used nearly 60 feet of 1/0AWG on both my big 3 upgrade and dual battery (w/ isolator) setup -- and all of mine is under the hood. He's running from the front to the back with piles of alternators and batteries....

    The sound-deadening looked good but I'd worry it's not enough for that setup. I wanted to see pictures of the installed alternators; the step entailing choosing brackets for them and their mounting positions was missing ... as was the step about what serpentine belt to use. I know those aren't sexy steps for the uninitiated ... but they are important ones regardless. Car audio people know just how much custom alternators, brackets, and mounting can run and how important they are in setups like this one.

    I didn't see a step for choosing an alarm to protect all that gear ... or using a garage to keep it in so night time break-ins aren't a concern. :p

    Beautiful work under the hood, right down to the stepped wire ties and custom bars. I, too, am curious how long that belt is ... and more important, how it was sized. I've never done multi- alternators but I considered it and one reason I didn't go there was I wasn't sure how to size the belt length after adding the new alternator bracket with alternator.

    I like what I see. Details are everything!

    Wow that a lot of stereo. My Dad has owned a custom stereo shop for over 30 years now and we have built some really high end stuff for people. I have done usac and iasca competions since I was 16 and was sponsored by fosgate back in 98. Good times, Good luck on everything and keep us posted
