    03/04/2014 I installed my new stereo equipment. I got a Subthump stealth enclosure, JL Audio 10W3V3 Subwoofer, and an Alpine MRV-M500 Class D Monoblock amp with external boost control knob. The wiring kit is a Rockford Fosgate 4 Gauge Power and Ground.

    I wired the boost control knob to a less visible location as you can see in the pics. If your sitting in the passenger seat you can't see it as it sits a little lower. I used 3M double sided padded type tape so it can be easily removed without any issues. Don't mind the wires in the little cubby all the wiring is hidden. That is actually the mic for the stereo that i haven't ran anywhere yet. I plan on going with a NAV double din in the future so I haven't decided if I should run that somewhere yet.

    The sub is 2ohm at 500 Watt RMS. The amp is 500 watts at 2ohm. The birth sheet was actually 567 watt RMS! The subthump box fit near perfect. There is a tiny gap toward the hatch area but it is perfect everywhere else. I couldn't be happier with the build quality of it. For the price you can't beat it being more than half the cost of the other competition out there. Having JL subs before I know how clean they sound while packing a punch. This one was no different. It pounds and is super clean. The amp is a great match and gives the sub plenty of clean power while staying cool. It is super tiny so it helps it stay nice and cool under the passenger seat.

    Here are some pics!

    Thanks! I need to check out your build to see what you have done lately. What did you end up going with?
