Lol, let me break it down for you...
1.)an 18" RE SX needs approximately 8 cubic feet to operate and building an enclosure that large in a trunk would take some real effort, and is a waste of my time because there is also a gas tank in my trunk behind the rear seats...
2.)The RE Audio SX is rated at 1000wats rms, the US Amps XT-4000D does 986watts rms at 1ohm(that spec comes directly from the designer of the amp)...so that amp is plenty power.
3.)The maximum current draw of that amp is 75A, which is not enough to require a 1/0 power run....
Any other constructive criticism?

Gotta love know it alls.  Nice setup so far, I'm thinking of saving up for some RE stuff later on.  I bet that thing sucks the air out of your cabin =)

I drive a 1990 300ce, so I know all about the pains of that gas tank.  I went a completely different route, though.  I cut a 10" hole under the first aid kit and made a baffle that mounts to the underside of the deck... and I'm running a single 10 via infinite baffle.  Lots of work to seal the cabin from the trunk!

I have to say, you seem really into loud bass... because you were willing to sacrifice asthetics and the back seat of your Mercedes for it.  To each his own, I guess!

Yes I definitely love loud bass. But the only reason i've gone so extreme on my car is because it is somewhat of a demo vehicle for the shop I work at...
I did give up my back seat, but asthetics will be reborn. The setup in the pictures was temporary and has since been removed. I am building a new enclosure in the same fashion, but building out with trim panels and fiberglass so that I can get a more flowing look. The entire build will also be carpeted to match the factory feel...Will have pictures of this within the month...

so you got at my question the wrong way i built plenty of boxes in my time and i know it would not be easy to put that sub in the trunk put the challange of putting it in there is what i was aiming for . ang goign with bigger wire doesnt hurt your system as lomnng as the fuse rating is correct later
