I recommend you also pick up the ACR-1 Remote that goes with the LC7i. I wouldn't be happy without one.

Good luck!

Some changes to the original items list listed in red as follows:
- Returned the PT0516 Platinum 0/1 AWG Power Ring Terminals (not needed)
- Returned one of the distribution blocks (running 4 awg ground direct from amps, don't need a 2nd dist block for that)
- Returned the Cadence wire which is CCA and got Knu OFC wire instead, and less of it. The Cadence is nothing more than copper heavily lined with aluminum.
- Returned the pack of 2 200a ANL fuses and got 125a, as that is the proper size for 0/1 splitting into two 4 awg runs. Upto 325a ANL can be used on a 0/1 power wire, but a 200a ANL for that is more than enough.
- Returned J/L battery terminal....to do the big 3, you need a terminal that accepts two 0/1 awg inputs and two 8 awg inputs
- Added a pack of 4 awg ring terminals
- Added another pack of 0/1 terminals
- Added a crimping tool

To give an idea on the quality of Knu Kolossus vs Cadence, the weight of all the Cadence wire in the original post was 11 lbs total, while the all the Knu wire pictured below was 17 lbs, and that's with having 12 ft LESS of the 4 gauge!

Should have told me you needed a distribution block. I've got a $40 block that I'm selling for $25. One block takes care of ground AND power for 2 amps (or 1 amp + DSP; or 4 power or 4 ground). Scosche Delta D block:

You've got a nice list going. Not the way I would have spent $2,1xx on audio, but hey...it's your money!

But if you get bored...


Drop the rears and LC7 and use that money to pick up a DSP.

...try to stop smiling after that

ACR-1 Remote mounting





Middle location didn't work, so I had to put the knob on the end and modify the plastic surround with a dremel tool to get it to fit.





All finished:



Box for W7 built to JL specs, now for some trim peices using 1/4" MDF





Ran out of the carpet I used on the box, so I had to use another type for the trim peices for now.



Fold down seats only to see more carpet! Stealth amp mount install FTW!





This system POUNDS and is CLEAR! Worth every penny. Big 3 upgrade can be seen in my sig.

Onto the next project......

Try a pair of 15's in IB next time. You'll gain nearly all your trunk back and have more spl across all frequencies, especially under tuning
