Yeah, it's been 3 months since I finished this box and got it primed. The other day, I finally had enough time to pull the box out and get it painted.

This is what it looked like before:



And this is now:




Now just have to decide how to get a bit more red on the amp rack and I think it'll be done. BTW, Thanks to Brandon at Precision Body Works here in Goldsboro for the paintjob.

I smell a lot of money dumped into that setup. W7's and Alpine amps....

Nope, just W3's. May be moving to JL Audio HD amps shortly...so the Alpines may come up for sale.

I just noticed, it looked like W7's on my crap work computer, but now that I see it at home I can see the little "W3" logo on each. And I would definitely look into getting the JL amps since they (IMO) have a better design and work a bit more efficiently, pending you don;t just get a cheap one.

:shock:

if you're looking to get more red on your amps, you could just do a trim panel out of 1/8" plywood covered in 'glass. the shape i'm thinking of is two rounded rectangles connected in the middle .... a lot easier to explain if i could draw on this computer. to each his own, but in my head it looks awesome.

i can't imagine three w3's. one is almost plenty for me.

I loooove my Alpines. Got rid of 2 old school Diamond Audio D7 amps for these and have been very happy with my decision. They don't sound quite as good as the D7s did, but they are half the price and 1/4 the space.

Did you remove the spare tire to mount those amps?
[/quote]

No, I did not. They are mounted in the plastic tray under the floor with a 1/4 trim board around them. Just had to raise the back of the amps up a bit.

Since I don't know what I'm doing about amps yet, I'm not going to mess with it. But as soon as I decide, I'll get it done.
