    That looks awesome, bit of work there to get that fit and finish I'm guessing, going through tuning the system at the moment many choices and different ways to do it, Im trying to do it by ear, it is slowly getting there i have s**tloads of power to spare so i am only running about 2 -2.5 on the gains, to the fronts, can go to 10 and it is making my ears bleed at that, the sound that is coming out of these DLS Scans is by far the best front stage i have ever heard.
    Anywho do you have any more photo's of your system? or are they already on here and i can just search for them?

    5.0 VS S Ute
    figured I'd post my build that i did over the last two days (when i wasn't at work) in here for anyone looking for ideas on how to fit a sub into a ute.
    I didn't want to cut a hole into the back of the cab, and i wanted it to sound good with a full surround system. so here is what i did.

    i should mention i have no real background in woodwork or this kind of construction and i figured it all out as i went.

    i built a box that fits perfectly on the back shelf, with a sub box overhanging the shelf in the middle to fit between the seats, doing all the wiring inside the box and connecting to easy terminals that take about 5 seconds to put on. i had some house insulation around at work so i put some of that inside to deaden the sound, being right next to my head it doesn't need to boom.
    the result is a very tight and high quality sound from the sub and both 6x9 speakers that sounds good even when you crank it right up to earbursting levels and beyond. the car has top end fusion 6" speakers and tweeters in the front that sound great themselves and work perfectly with my Evolution 6x9's.
    running all of this i have a JVC 600 watt 4 channel amp under the passenger seat running all the speakers, and a powervox 300 watt amp running the sub. they aren't massive amps, but they sure do the job well.

    all that is left to do is cover the box with a dark green vinyl that matches what i am soon to do on the outside of my vs. just waiting for it to get here in the mail.

    let me know what you think of it :)

    Ok quick list of my system:

    Stock head unit, running into Audison Bit One. Then going out to two Genesis 5 channel amps, which run active front 3 way (SB Acoustics tweeters, Scanspeak Midrange, and Crescendo Midbass). I have a single Oz Audio 12 in a sealed box in the boot.

    Bit one in glovebox:

    Quick and lazy build for my Ute, Not a whole lot of stratigic placement happened with this in the way of wire hiding. Crecendo Opus 8.6 for fronts and some Opus 3 Behind the seats. Alpine R12 under the Tray (next to fuel tank) with about 20mm room for it from the front wall and about 2mm room from the dust cover in box lol. Alpine M12 Amp for the Sub and a Massive Turantulla for the speakers. thinking of getting a different Sub but hard to find one what will fit and sound better then the r12 for what i want. lol [​IMG]

    Dont have any pics of the sub under the tray or the speakers before they went in =/ but it was a tight squeeze getting em in.

    Wow specs. Now I understand why big three/dual batteries/farad cap are relevant to you. I posted on your other thread but it hasn't come through yet. looking forward to pics. :thumbsup:

    Yeah she's all in the car wired up but I haven't finnished the boot gotta extend the box to cover the second battery and maybe hide the amps the only thing I want to be seen is the big ask subs in the back I'll be taking some photos in the morning its a work in progress so you've gotta look past the masses of cable and the ugly battery box

    I've changed my whole system :eek:, currently running the Pioneer 80PRS to do all the processing then I have the dual Pioneer PRS amps powering one set of re audio xxx mids/tweeters. This kicker zx750 mono amp I had lying around I used to power the subwoofers.

    Currently have dual 10's but I am in the middle of playing with a 6th order for my re audio se 10".

    Tweeter/midwoofer pods are still in the making though.
