Amp and Sub install

So I decided to install a sub using the SVT box. For those that don't know the SVT box is only big enough for a slim 8". SvviftSVT said that you can cut it to fit a 10"

New toys:
Rockford Fosgate Punch 8" P35 subwoofer RMS 300W, Dual 4ohm only 2.66" deep.
Alpine 500 watt V-Power mono amp
And Dynamat!!! Not really Dynamat, but very similar lol



I started off by Dynamatting the inside of the box and outside:

Put the foam back in:

Here is the Sub:

Wired it:

Installed it:

Ran the wires out the back where the bolt was holding the factory sub in:

Used what little dynamat I had left on the fenderwell:


Here are my amps side by side, the one with the silver on top is a four-channel amp for the door speakers, Alpine only changed the color, I might plastidip the top of the four channel lol:

The install:

Cleaned up the wiring and covered it:





I will add some blue led's around the speaker grille and a blue led in the light box, I also need to level the floor a bit more, to account for the regular spare, but I am verrrry happy with how it sounds and looks.
