I am the last person that should be judging anyone on how their system is set up. I thought your setup looked great. I was just informing anyone who didn't know about the battery location. I guess the way you worded it didn't click for me.

ok its been a while and i havent really got that far due to the fiberglass and i arnt getting along but heres what i have so far

slick94prix i hope you dont mind but i kinda used your idea for the amp mount cuz the couple idea i had were near impossible

there will be a fiberglass cover that goes around the amps so you wont see any of that wood or wires. cant really tell but the amps are at a double angle

I definately wouldn't have used box carpet, but to each their own.
