Default My Stereo Build (16000+ W)

As the title mentions, my stereo build is about to commence. Over the past 2 years or so I've had a couple smaller systems (2 different versions of 4 8's, 1 15, all on 3500W), but now the real build is getting started. 4 SSA 15" Evils powered by a Stetsom 14K6 in a half wall, and 4 sets of CT Sounds Meso 6.5" components. Not sure what amp the components will be on yet, other than it will be Stetsom. Here's the initial pics, more will follow. The design of the panels has changed a bit too, the tweeters won't be curved, they'll be in the same spot, but in a straight line.

Have told myself if I ever do a big stereo in a truck it would be a blow through. Just don't think I could ever talk myself into cutting a $45,000 truck. Interested to see the outcome. What kind of alt and batteries will you be running?

It's funny you mention blow through. As that's what I'm leaning towards on my rebuild. Up until a day ago I was bound and determined to do a full wall. But then I started thinking, I do a lot of highway driving, in the winter. One mishap and I've got 1000 lbs of wood and box crashing down on me if it's not secured good enough. So I quickly changed my mind to a half wall. Slightly more safe. Lol. I can understand being hesitant about cutting a truck up, first hole I drilled in mine scared the hell out of me, but now the idea of cutting a blowthrough hole doesn't intimidate me as much.

As far as alt I've got a 300 amp excessive amperage alt, and I'll be running 14 or so Paccar dry cell batteries (don't know the model exactly, got em CHEAP, aka, free). So I'll see how they do, then maybe upgrade later. I would like another alt too, but that would need a custom bracket, which no one makes yet for the 5.0L.

Change of plans on the battery bank.. Gonna be running 6 dry cells. I feel like it's not enough, but a guru I know (he ran 4 stetsom 11k's for 5 years) assured me that 6 plus my alt will be sufficient. Here's the pic though. The spaces between the batteries are where it will be mounted to the seat bolts.

Hahah. 3500W is plenty loud! I've been running that for a while now, and it's more than enough. I just wanted excessive…
