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.

here is the rest of the instalation picture ive took if ur interested in seeing it, since none replyed I guess no one will be interested anyway.

Ground done for the amp and capacitor

PAC SOEM-T Line out converter wiring done

Wire and Ground Ran

still installing the PAC LOC

mess time

mess time

wiring the speaker input on the LOC to the stock amp of the 10 speaker stock sound system

4 AWG power wire ran on the firewall

4 AWG power wire ran on the firewall

there was no seal beetween the sub and the amp like u can see, I had to add one (not in the pic unfortunatly)

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

trying to make this as clean as possible

Before the front face got painted

First coat of paint

Sanding

Secong coat of paint

Final result doesnt look bad at all

Before running the power wire under the carpet (laters changed my mind lol)

Before running the power wire under the carpet (laters changed my mind lol)

Wire ran under the carpet to look much more clean and professional

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.
