Pictures of what? MY system? Not hardly! Right now, you might expect to see my system over at Ghetto Installs (Thanks, Bob haemphyst's new system - Page 2 -- posted image. ) Soon, tho, kids... soon!

Post a picture of how you integrated the 3-ways setup into your door panels.  Ghetto or not.  haemphyst's new system - Page 2 -- posted image.

I hope you're not dissapointed by those alpine amps.  I don't have any experience with the PDX series, but I have a lot of experience with with their $200-$400 stuff and there's no doubt in my mind that comparably priced eclipse amps (for highs and mids) are much much better.

If you have no experience with them why post? If you only sell Ford Focus' how can you have an opinion on the GT-40?
There is no such thing as free installation!

Here's pics from Bob, during and after the construction of the door panels.
On this page we see links to pictures of the mid-bass drivers going into the doors.
Here's where I WAS!!! And here's where I'm heading.
TD Settings, as they are presently.
sqsq, as far as the change to Alpine amps, I think I'm going to be MORE than satisfied... The PDX amplifiers are B&O IcePower modules, just like the new Eclipse XA amplifier line, but in a significantly smaller box. This is the only reason I am swapping to the Alpines

Well, I now have to sell the last amp! I have yanked them all from my car, and now I have NO TUNES!!! Bob has my NEW amps on order, but I can't buy 'em without the cash from selling all of the old ones first! haemphyst's new system - Page 2 -- posted image.
Help a brother out! Someone PLEASE buy my DA7232! Asking less than HALF of retail price! A REAL 2kW for less than 500 bux, shipped, and insured!

OK, kids! I have one more question to ask, before I decide to nail this thing's feet to the floor.
In my trunk, I will have about 2.6 cubic feet, gross volume.
Option 1: The TCSounds TC1000 wants (for deep extension) 1 cube each, sealed, this will supposedly give me an f3 between 20 and 25Hz. This I can do, I have the space.
Option 2: Also recommended is 2.4 cubes, vented with a 4X20 port. Fb of this is 22Hz... (daddy like..), but I would only have space for 1. Slot loading would not be a problem. Plenty of volume for that. If I was to decide on THIS alignment, I'd be dumping the TC1000's in favor of an TC-10 OEM, with the 10 inch PR to go with it. More money, again... fo-hunnert mo dollas! dammit! .6 cubic feet with 1 10" PR, and I can't really find where it says what it'll do, but I'm sure it'd be subterranean!
Option 3: A true isobarik (NOT push-pull) configuration, with 1.2 cubic feet, net, on a HUGE slot load. Still making 20 to 22Hz, but 6dB quieter than the dual sealed config. Y'all know I don't REALLY care much about the SPL's... it's all about the cleeeeean...
Sorta leaning toward 3, but I'd like some input from other members, please! (You all know who you are, too... haemphyst's new system - Page 2 -- posted image.) I like 3, because I could use 1 inch or 1.5 inch MDF, and still have volume to spare.

Go with option 3 first.  I like the thought of sonic cancellation.  Definately use the 1.5 ft^3 MDF...just because...lol.  If its not loud enough then just do option 2.  Sounds like an interesting idea.  I have friends that say that ported woofers are a big no no and I would like nothing more than to show them that someone that knows what he is talking about is doing.  I also like the idea that you already have the equipment for option 3, so you can go ahead and give it a try.  Doesn't cost any extra at this point I suppose.  Wood is cheaper than speakers.  If it doesn't fit your idea of what you expected, then change.

I like the setup.  Good luck!

...typically, I just run whatever I randomly pick up off the floor.

It WOULD cost, as each of those options would require a complete rebuild of the trunk portion of the system, as I am integrating battery, caps/power distribution, amp rack, and enclosure ALL into the space, and it'll all be one great big "thing". Everything is going to be hidden, and all you are going to see is a grey carpet-covered wall, when you open the trunk lid. (maybe woofer cones, too, I still have not decided which way I'm going to face them...) This is kinda why I was asking peoples opinions FIRST, cause there's TONS of work involved to change it once I'm "done with it". haemphyst's new system - Page 2 -- posted image. My understanding of the TC-1000 is one of tremendous output for a 10" woofer, so I think one cone surface SHOULD be enough, I just hope I am not over-expecting...

Thanks! I'll be throwing up pics of construction as it happens, and there will be reviews after it's all said and done. I'll also try ot get over to Bob's place before the BBQ goes down, so he can help stir up excitement for this thing! LOL
