2012 focus titanium sound system instalation project
 
hi all, in the next days im planning on installing these 10" audioBahn sub in my car with a line converter that I bought, I know everything is in piece right now because ive bought it used and found out that the sub was wrongly installed in the box ( as you can see on pictures bellow, some holes where the screw was are broken + there was no seal beetween the sub and the box), So I have to redo that tomorrow as well as installing the line output converter on the stock amp and running all the 4 gauges wire that ill also buy tomorrow, I might do a custom rack for the amp/capacitors, if anyone is interested in following this build leave reply and ill post some more pictures and a video of the final result.

Redone new holes to secure the sub since old one was broken and wrongly installed.

Could you tell me the color wires and the plug you taped in to. To instal the line out converter please and maybe take a more detailed picture of the wires. It would help me out alot

I am having an issue with even my sound system, did you find an aftermarket alt? Even with a cap that just bandaids the fact you're going to kill the Alt in any MK3. Cross full and 6 volume kills the lights.
